New Zealand 57 South Africa 0: All Blacks hit Springboks with record thrashing

Watch: Beauden Barrett Takes The Absolute Piss With Unexpected Moment For All Blacks Try

A shell-shocked Springboks side have no choice but to pick themselves up for their final two Rugby Championship matches in South Africa after they were thumped 57-0 by New Zealand on Saturday, coach Allister Coetzee said.

Stransky said: "You are going to beat us every single day of the week, we aren't anywhere near that level of decision making".

"We've got Australia up next and from this learning experience we will get stronger and I promise you we will be ready for Australia".

All Blacks loosehead Kane Hames endured a hard first Test start and was penalised when the Springboks surged through him at an early scrum.

"It's tough and I told the players we can't go on like this and we are disappointed".

The All Blacks remain unbeaten after four rounds of the competition and appear headed towards a successful defence of their southern hemisphere crown.

Springboks captain Eben Etzebeth, a man of few words at the best of times, also appeared to be coming to terms with the result - the worst defeat in Springboks' history.

"The next game at Newlands is not of vital importance.we are all following (the All Blacks), when they click like that on the weekend they are unstoppable. They were too good", he said. "A lot of people will see the score and not draw any positives from it, but I see a lot of positives in it", Coetzee said.

And that was a tribute to the work of Smith, a 17-Test All Black in the 1980s, and now recognised as one of the most astute thinkers of the game.

"We came in tonight pretty clear about how we wanted to play and what we wanted to achieve and a lot of those things came off", coach Steve Hansen said.

There was still time for the hosts to get their fourth try before the half-time interval and collect their bonus point when Ioane sliced through the South Africa defence before playing in Coles to find Brodie Retallick and stroll in under the posts to lead 31-0. "The scoreboard didn't really reflect the difference between the two sides".

First five Beauden Barrett had a vintage first 40 minutes, converting four tries and a penalty and featuring in a magical behind-the-back pass to send Milner Skudder over for his first try.

"When you go through a transition, and have a new team like we do this year, one must not only focus on the storms, but look at the rainbow as well".
