The All Blacks on Saturday extended their winning streak to 16 consecutive Tests after beating South Africa 32-16 in Soweto on Saturday night.

The All Blacks have not lost a game since being beaten by Australia in August last year.

South Africa were dominant in the first half and led 16-12 at halftime.

However, the All Blacks struck back with tries by Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith soon after half time.

Sam Whitelock and Aaron Smith also scored. Dan Carter converted three, as well as kicking a penalty and a drop goal to put the game out of the Springboks' reach.

The All Blacks now claim the Rugby Championship series with six wins from six games.

Captain Riche McCaw has also played in 100 Test victories.

The final match of the series was played by Australia and Argentina in Rosario on Sunday. Australia won 25-19.
