Southern Hemisphere supremacy sealed, as if there were any doubts, the All Blacks moved one step closer to knocking off the world record for test wins in Durban. Oh, and while they were at it, also recorded their biggest ever win against the Boks, eclipsing the 36-point margin at Loftus, Pretoria, back in 2003.
This 57-15 victory was truly remarkable. A proud rugby nation in South Africa was left decimated. So much for the Aaron Smith saga impacting this team.
NZ has played South Africa 93 times. South Africa used to bear New Zealand more often than not. But in the professional era NZ wins around two out of every three.
Since 2010 they have played 15 times and NZ has won 13 out of 15 matches.
