2017 saw the All Blacks claim their second championship in a row – their fifth in six editions of the tournament – after going unbeaten over their six matches.

Australia endured a middling campaign that will probably be most remembered for the Wallabies drawing with South Africa not once, but twice.

A crushing loss 54-34 to New Zealand in Sydney was followed up by a more gallant, but ultimately unsuccessful, 35-29 result in Dunedin.

The Wallabies and Springboks couldn’t be separated in Perth, with their match finishing 23-23, before Australia finally tasted victory in Canberra with a 45-20 triumph over Argentina.

Australia’s campaign concluded with a 27-all draw with South Africa in Bloemfontein and a 37-20 victory over the Pumas in Mendoza.
