New Zealand beat Australia 37-10 on Saturday to win their 18th consecutive Test, breaking a 47-year-old record for top-tier nations in rugby union.

The All Blacks outscored the Wallabies six tries to one to surpass the previous mark of 17 straight wins first achieved by the New Zealand team of 1965-1969.
