World champions New Zealand won the Team of the Year award at the World Rugby awards on Sunday in London.

Despite losing several key players such as Dan Carter and Richie McCaw after last year's World Cup victory over Australia they have carried on remorselessly cruising to the Rugby Championship title.

In the process they also set a new world record mark of 18 successive Test victories.

That run sensationally came to an end when Ireland beat them 40-29 in Chicago last month, but they bounced back this weekend by trouncing Italy and have a tilt at revenge next Saturday when they meet the Irish in Dublin.
