11:10 am on 8 October 2012

The All Blacks have extended their winning streak to 16 in a row after beating South Africa 32-16 following a dominant second half performance in Soweto.

The All Blacks haven't lost a game since being beaten by Australia in August last year and they are now one win off the top-tier world record.

South Africa were dominant in the first half and deservedly led the game at half-time 16-12.

However, the All Blacks struck back straight away with Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith both picking up tries just after half time.

Dan Carter notched up 12 points with the boot including a drop goal to put the game out of the Springboks' reach.

The All Blacks claim the Rugby Championship with six wins from six games and Riche McCaw has also featured in 100 test victories for his country.
