Boasting a 100% record with five wins from five, the All Blacks' magnificent display during the tournament has seen them win the Rugby Championship title for the seventh time and displace their opponents today at the top of the world rankings.
In contrast it's been a tournament to forget for South Africa, having only managed to beat Argentina and with the Springboks now on a run of three consecutive defeats.
The pressure is therefore very much on Rassie Erasmus' side to deliver a positive result in this final match of the tournament.
But with their opponents in such a rich vein of form, it's going to take a dramatic turnaround for South Africa to register what would be their first win over New Zealand in three years.
Follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a South Africa vs New Zealand live stream of the Rugby Championship game wherever you are right now.
How to live stream South Africa vs New Zealand from outside your country
If you're outside your country of residence - whether that be the UK or anywhere else - and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.
By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course - specifically its terms and conditions.
