The All Blacks breezed through the Rugby Championship and won the tournament with a game to spare. Good job fellas. Choice display. Not the kind of team to rest on their laurels or ease off on the ol’ pedal they then mustered cray cray depths of reserve strength and stamina by flying from Argentina to Joburg to come from behind and eventually smash the Boks in their own backyard (90,000 seater stadium) in Nasrec Soweto.
