Heading into the Test at Eden Park, the All Blacks were on 91.68 points while the defending Tri-Nations champion Boks had 89.46.

Victory for the Boks would've seen then assume the No 1 position in the standings, but Peter de Villiers's team fell woefully short of the target as they crashed to a 32-12 defeat.

In the wake of their win, the All Blacks now found themselves on 92.40 points with the Boks 3.66 adrift on 88.74.

Fellow Tri-Nations contenders, the Wallabies, remain third on 84.41.

Meanwhile, Kenya retained their 100% record in the 2010 Victoria Cup with a 21-5 win over Uganda in Nairobi and moved up three places to 35th in the rankings.

IRB Top 10 rankings:

1. New Zealand 92.40
2. South Africa 88.74
3. Australia 84.41
4. France 82.75
5. Ireland 82.03
