17 September 2017 6:59 AM All Blacks seek improvement even after record win

Scrum-half Smith feels they were bit ‘sluggish’ in second half Auckland: The All Blacks gave themselves a pass mark but said there was still a lot to work on as they reflected on Sunday on their record 57-0 demolition of South Africa.

17 September 2017 3:06 AM Israel Dagg's season appears over

Scans this week will confirm the extent of the damage to Dagg's troublesome knee that saw him sit out last night's 57-0 mauling of the Springboks in Albany.

The record defeat for the Boks has been described on social media as 'embarrassing' and 'shocking' by supporters, as the rampant world champions ran in eight tries in a sparkling display of attacking rugby that had their hapless opponents floundering. “We all thought last year losing to New Zealand by 42 points was a low point and we didn’t think it could 6

16 September 2017 7:39 PM Springboks thrashed by record margin

This All Blacks team is certainly on to something. They'd hinted as much in the last few weeks but for the first time this year, they delivered the package they were after. They put together a performance that will probably sit somewhere close to being the blueprint they want to use for the rest of the season and possibly beyond. And for good reason 1

16 September 2017 10:47 AM Woeful Springboks crash to record defeat to All Blacks

CAPE TOWN – There was so much promise in the build-up to the game, with Allister Coetzee proud of the Springboks’ six-match unbeaten start to 2017. The coach said that there would a “reality check” after the Boks face the All Blacks, and they were left with no doubt as to how far behind the world champions they really are as they crashed to a record 2
