Graham Henry has declared himself pleased with New Zealand's performance against France earlier today.

New Zealand coach Graham Henry was pleased with his side's performance during their 37-17 victory over France earlier today.

The Kiwi's win over their main group rivals has secured their passage through to the quarter-finals.

"It was a very pleasing performance," said Henry. "There were some good tries.

"We finished pretty well at times and put some good things together. It's good to have a decent hit out against some decent opposition.

"It was a step up in opposition, a step up in intensity and, for most of the game, we played pretty well."

Hosts New Zealand are likely to face either Scotland or Argentina in the next round.
