The Blues are hoping to play a midweek game against France during the Super Rugby international window in June.

The Blues are set to play the World Cup finalists at North Harbour Stadium on Tuesday June 11, which is in between the first and second Tests.

Blues CEO Andy Dalton says the French requested the fixture as they will be based in Auckland during their three-week tour.

The rare match has been agreed upon in principle with the NZRU and France working to ratify the details.
