Going further back out of the last ten matches between the two nations the All Blacks have won 8 and the Springboks two.

Overall New Zealand have played South Africa 87 times and the All Blacks have won 50 matches and lost 34 matches. There have been three draws between the nations.
This weekend the match between the teams will be played in Wellington New Zealand. The All Blacks have played the Springboks 40 times in New Zealand and they have won 29 matches, lost 9 matches and drawn twice.

The average score when New Zealand play South Africa in Wellington is New Zealand 33 South Africa 14 with a record of winning 100% of the matches.
South Africa have not won in New Zealand since 2009. Since that loss New Zealand have won their last 35 matches on home soil.
In terms of form New Zealand are the only team who have yet to lose in the Rugby Championship after South Africa lost to Australia last week. A victory on Saturday will cement the All Blacks place on top of the Rugby Championship standings as they will lead their closest rivals by at least five points.
South Africa did not have strong form in their opening two matches but improved greatly last week. However despite having a hugely experienced team they were unable to hold off Australia’s late charge and lost by one point.
New Zealand recovered from their opening draw with a big win over Australia. Last week they beat Argentina with a bonus point and are the only team so far to have won bonus points for scoring four tries.
In terms of selection South Africa have made the surprise selection of naming young rookie Handre Pollard to start the match with Morne Steyn dropping out of the match squad altogether.
New Zealand have also made a change at 10 by bringing in Aaron Cruden who is the second choice 10 behind Dan Carter who is injured.
Sam Whitelock and Liam Messam have been replaced by Jeremy Thrush and Steven Luatua as the only other All Black changes.
