South Africa 15-57 New Zealand: Kiwis seal clean sweep in the Rugby Championship after nine-try romp
New Zealand overcame the absence of suspended half-back Aaron Smith to seal a clean sweep in the Rugby Championship with a nine-try, 57-15 victory over South Africa in Durban.
The All Blacks' preparations for this clash were undermined by an embarrassing revelation on Wednesday when Smith was suspended for one Test and sent home from South Africa after admitting he joined a woman in a public toilet last month.
The incident occurred at Christchurch Airport, the day after the world champions beat the Springboks on September 17 to secure the Championship title with two rounds to spare.
