Wales head coach Mike Ruddock has called on his side to play like All Blacks when they tackle France in Paris.
New Zealand destroyed France 45-6 last November with quick, incisive, attacking rugby and Ruddock has learned a great deal by comparing their sublime performance with England's efforts at Twickenham a fortnight ago.
"There is no doubt when you consider New Zealand's performance against France last November, compared with England's performance against France, England struggled to get quick ball away from the contact areas," said Ruddock.
"People like Serge Betsen were slowing the ball down in the contact area, and England were not able to get the ball away and break down the French defence that easily whereas New Zealand hit a little bit wider and cleared away from the tackle area very quickly.
"All of a sudden, they were attacking spaces and getting the off-loads game going, so we will want to reproduce that type of thing."
The All Blacks succeeded in effectively nullifying Betsen's influence by avoiding unnecessary contact and off-loading the ball quickly to keep the Biarritz destroyer chasing shadows.
That now forms a key element in Ruddock's gameplan. And, to help ensure his players can win quick ball he called up Ryan Jones to start at blindside flanker.
"Betsen is a great player. It will be a good test for our back-row. He is a player who has always impressed me, not only with his skill and bravery, but his work-rate and general all-round commitment to the cause," said Ruddock.
"The French style of play is very committed in and around the tackle area, and their defence has been good and I don't expect us to get as many opportunities as we did in Italy.
"France have got one of the best defences. They were Six Nations champions last year, and they have not lost this year, and the reason is that they are so difficult to break down.
"Because New Zealand cleared the ball away from the contact areas very quickly, it stopped the French coming up in defence.
"In order to break them down, we can't afford to have too much slow ball.
"We need to keep the ball away from the contact area as much as possible, really. We try to play a brand of rugby where we avoid the contact, if possible, and attack space rather than taking the ball into contact."
