Cape Town - The June internationals have come to an end and, perhaps not surprisingly, it is the All Blacks who have emerged as the most lethal side in the southern hemisphere - if the try count is anything to go by.

The All Blacks beat Wales convincingly in all three Tests, registering 15 tries in the process (5 per game). 

Out of the six teams involved in the three Test series', Ireland and Wales shared the worst try-scoring record, crossing the line just 5 times against the Springboks and All Blacks, respectively.

Despite having lost their series against England 3-0, Australia actually outscored their northern hemisphere visitors in two of their three clashes. 

Here is a look at how all six sides performed:

South Africa (won 2, lost 1)

Tries - 6

Ireland (won 1, lost 2)
