Cape Town - The All Blacks' season-ending northern tour has been extended to five matches with a midweek game against a French selection now scheduled for Lyon.

French media have reported the All Blacks will play a French XV on Tuesday, November 14 just three days after the All Blacks' Test against France at the Stade de France in Paris.

The tour will kick off on November 4 with a game against the Barbarians at Twickenham, London. The All Blacks then head to Paris to take on Les Bleus, their first encounter since the All Blacks' 24-19 win in Paris last November.

The All Blacks will meet the French selection three days later before playing Scotland at Murrayfield on November 18.

The final match of the All Blacks' tour is against Wales in Cardiff on November 25.
