Cape Town - Reigning rugby world champions New Zealand are chasing a record-breaking 18th consecutive Test win (for top tier nations) in Saturday's Rugby Championship Test against the Wallabies in Sydney.

Kick-off is at 12:05 SA time.

The All Blacks, following their 36-13 victory over England in their most recent Test, find themselves equal with the 17-Test winning runs of the 1965-69 All Blacks and 1997-98 Springboks.

The all-conquering Kiwis have not tasted defeat since going down to England at Twickenham in December 2012 and have beaten the Springboks twice in their current win streak.
