Cape Town - An All Blacks victory over the Springboks on Saturday in Dunedin (kick-off 09:35 SA time) will give New Zealand their 14th consecutive win since losing 25-20 to Australia in Brisbane in last year's Tri-Nations.
 
According to the allblacks.com website, the All Blacks' record number of consecutive wins was set between 1965 and 1970, when they recorded 17 straight wins.

Their longest unbeaten streak came between 1987 and 1990, when they put together a run of 23 games without a loss, tempered by a 19-all draw with Australia in July 1988.

New Zealand require just eight more points the break the 1 000-point barrier in Rugby Championship (including Tri-Nations) matches against South Africa.

New Zealand’s last loss at home to the Springboks came in Hamilton in September 2009, when they were beaten 32-29.

That loss remains the last time the All Blacks lost at home and they have gone on to record 22 consecutive home victories since then.

In total, South Africa have beaten the All Blacks nine times in New Zealand. The Springboks have beaten the All Blacks in Dunedin on just one occasion in nine attempts (in 2008, 30-28 at Carisbrook).

New Zealand have an 84% win ratio in Dunedin, losing just five Tests over a period of 80 years.
