South African Springboks

Two of the most iconic teams in rugby are set to meet in another historic final

It's the sport's most storied and bitter rivalry.

Over the course of 105 Test matches since their first meeting at the House of Pain, Carisbrook stadium in Dunedin in 1921, these two most recognisable of rugby rivals have fought battles on and off the pitch to create some of the sport's most iconic moments.

New Zealand won that first game 13-5 and have a far superior record overall, leading the head-to-head 62 to 39, with four draws.

But numbers can only tell you so much.
