All Blacks win

All Blacks smash Pumas

Having already sealed the 2016 Rugby Championship crown, Steve Hansen's imperious world champions now have the record books in sight, as they notched a 16th victory in succession in Buenos Aires.

New Zealand and South Africa jointly hold the record of 17 straight wins, set in the 1960s and 1990s respectively.

Hansen's All Blacks can match the achievements of their predecessors if they beat the Springboks in Durban next weekend.

All Blacks wallop Wales in Wellington

Barrett, who replaced Aaron Cruden in the first half after his fellow first five suffered a neck injury, broke the game open by setting up Ben Smith's try then scored himself after Wales had fought back to 10-10 at half-time.

Cruden's injury, which local radio reported as being a suspected 'compression neck injury' had actually brought the Welsh back into the game with the 27-year-old needing treatment for about 10 minutes before being carried off on a stretcher.
