New Zealand all but secured the Rugby Championship crown as they dominated the second half on their way to a comfortable 41-13 victory over South Africa in Christchurch.

The All Blacks made it four wins out of four as they outscored the Springboks 26-3 after the break, and will now win the tournament barring a bonus-point victory for Argentina against Australia later on Saturday.
