Live Test Rugby: All Blacks v Springboks

The world champions start as heavy favourites with the once ferocious battles between New Zealand and South Africa becoming a fading memory.
The All Blacks have won 11 of their last 12 encounters, including the last six by an average margin of 23 points.
The All Blacks go into the Test with a maximum 15 points from three games while South Africa are second with six points with Australia and Argentina on four.
A bonus point win would seal a third straight title for New Zealand, who have won 15 of the 22 southern hemisphere championships since 1996.
