The whole protocol was a farce. The French won the toss and were still made play in white. They were furious as they should have been allowed play in blue.As it is a world cup no team is deemed to have automatic right to claim a fixture as a home game and colours are decided on the toss of a coin.

This was because they still have black and white TVs in NZ. Colur sets are coming in 2013/14.
