Tick off the Rugby Championship and the Bledisloe.

Now, the only thing left to achieve for the All Blacks in 2016 is a new world record and a sweep of Europe.

Their current streak of 16 wins on the trot doesn't even look close to coming to an end. Not even Argentina, potentially the second best team going around right now, could come within 10 points.

Winning, and winning big, has become the norm with some Kiwi fans turning their noses up at a near 20-point victory.


But just how have the other teams fared? We take a look at the stats to show just how ridiculously good the All Blacks are.

Points Differential

Not surprisingly, the All Blacks lead the Rugby Championship table for points differential with +136.

But perhaps more incredible, is the fact that none of the other three teams have a positive figure.

South Africa sit on -21, Australia on -40 and Argentina on -75, meaning unless South Africa beat the All Blacks by 22 or more, or Australia trump the Pumas by 40+, only one team will finish the Rugby Championship with a positive points differential.

29 plays 26

The All Blacks have not only out-scored their individual opponents, they've also outscored everyone combined.

They've notched up a total of 29 tries in the Rugby Championship with the three other teams only combining for 26.

Crotty, Smith, and Savea

It's a three way tie for the top try scorer in 2016, each one of them an All Black.

Ryan Crotty, Ben Smith and Julian Savea each have four tries a piece and, with Israel Dagg on three, are making the backline prove more valuable than ever.

However, what's more interesting is the fact that Crotty, Smith, and Savea have more tries between them (12) than any of the other individual teams.

Australia and Argentina have scored nine, while the Springboks have scored eight.


The All Blacks have played five games so far in the Rugby Championship.

Their average points per game is 41, meanwhile their points against is just 14.

Only Argentina has scored more than 14.


Ben Smith's try in the 44th minute against the Pumas would be the last points the All Blacks scored in Sunday morning's test.

For a team that prides itself on exploding in the last 20 minutes, that stat seems out of place.

And it most certainly is.

You have to cast your mind all the way back to August, 2011, to find the All Blacks earliest "last point."

In a Tri-Nations match against the Springboks, Richard Kahui scored the All Blacks last points in the 35th minute.

21 minutes

The All Blacks have played 400 minutes of rugby so far in the Rugby Championship.

Beauden Barrett has only missed 21 of those minutes.
