History of rugby union matches between New Zealand and South Africa

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

New Zealand (the All Blacks) and South Africa (the Springboks) have been playing test match rugby union since 1921 when the All Blacks beat the Springboks in Dunedin 13 - 5. There is considerable history behind these matches, much of it off the field. In 1981, there were protests in New Zealand over the Springboks coming to New Zealand due to the then South African government's policy of apartheid. Up until the start of the professional era, South Africa had won 21 tests to New Zealand's 18. In the 50 matches since the start of the professional era, New Zealand have won 36 tests to South Africa's 14.

Since 2004 New Zealand and South Africa have contested the Freedom Cup, it has been included as part of the Rugby Championship since 2006. If the annual series is drawn, the winner is decided through aggregate.
