The Rugby Championship safely in the bag, the All Blacks can equal the all-time tier 1 record for consecutive Test wins with a victory over South Africa on Saturday night. But they must overcome arguably the greatest challenge an All Blacks team face, defeating the Springboks on their own patch - an assignment only made tougher following the off-field distraction that was Aaron Smiths airport toilet tryst.On form, it appears to be a fait accompli the two-time reigning world champions will reach the magical number of 17 straight wins, given what they did to Argentina in Buenos Aires last weekend. A blistering 12-minute spell before the break, in which they scored four tries, secured the result before the interval and showed the brilliant attack the All Blacks can turn on when the opportunity presents.Still, there is no doubting the Springboks are the one team the All Blacks would not want to be facing in their record tilt. South Africa may be playing ordinary rugby, but they never fail to rise to the All Blacks challenge when playing at home. A patchy win over the Wallabies last week will have instilled some confidence, as will a return to the kick-heavy, territory game that has long been a feature of South African rugby.Team newsSouth AfricaThe Springboks have been forced into two changes, at half-back and in the centres, with Faf de Klerk and Damian de Allende coming in for Rudy Paige and Jesse Kriel respectively. There are two further positional changes with de Allendes inclusion pushing Juan de Jongh to outside centre, while Bryan Habana and Francois Hougaard swap wings.Pat Lambie, Francois Hougaard, Juan de Jongh, Damian de Allende, Bryan Habana, Morne Steyn, Faf de Klerk; Warren Whiteley, 7-Oupa Mahoje, Francois Louw, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Eben Etzebeth, Vincent Koch, Adriaan Strauss (captain), Tendai Mtawarira. Replacments: Bongi Mbonambi, Steven Kitshoff, Julian Redelinghuys, Lood de Jager, Willem Alberts, Jaco Kriel, Lionel Mapoe, Willie le Roux.New ZealandAfter a long campaign, All Blacks coach Steve Hansen didn't hesitate in switching up his squad for the trip to Durban. In the pack, Sam Whitelock, Jerome Kaino and Matt Todd start at lock, blindside- and openside flanker respectively while Waisako Naholo returns after a long layoff to give Julian Savea a spell.Ben Smith, Israel Dagg, Anton Lienert-Brown, Ryan Crotty, Waisake Naholo, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara, Kieran Read (c), Matt Todd, Jerome Kaino, Samuel Whitelock, Brodie Retallick, Owen Franks, Dane Coles, Joe Moody. RESERVES: Codie Taylor, Wyatt Crockett, Charlie Faumuina, Liam Squire, Ardie Savea, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Lima Sopoaga, George Moala.Key matchup: Morne Steyn vs. Beauden BarrettIts a contrast of styles at No.10 with Morne Steyns right boot a key cog in a return to the Springboks traditional game plan. The veteran fly-half kicked 11 times compared with Quade Coopers four in the 18-10 win over the Wallabies; four penalties and two drop goals ensuring Steyns was the only name on South Africas scoresheet. If the Boks can deliver a similar kick-chase to last week and a solid platform at the set-piece, then they may be able to pin the All Blacks in their own half and force them into counter-attack after counter-attack. Its worked before.Steyns kick is to Barretts run, and doesn't the All Blacks playmaker just do it superbly? The standout player from either hemisphere in 2016, Barrett must surely have one hand on the World Rugby Award for Player of the Year such has been his superb form at both Super Rugby and Test level. The New Zealander needs only half a chance to cut through a gap or provide for those outside him, while his combination with fullback Ben Smith has been a joy to watch throughout the tournament. If Barrett has another strong game its hard to see the All Blacks suffering too much discomfort.Key stats- The All Blacks have won eight of their last nine matches against South Africa.- Morne Steyn scored 31 points (1T, 1C, 8P) for the Springboks the last time these two teams clashed at this venue (2009), the most ever by a player against New Zealand.- The All Blacks have already scored 205 points and 29 tries in this tournament, both record tallies in a single Rugby Championship/Tri Nations campaign.WeatherDurban is expecting humid conditions for kick-off on Saturday night, though there is only a 20 percent chance of rain. The temperature should hover around 19 degrees.UBET verdict: South Africa $1.22, New Zealand $4.25The All Blacks are on the road for the second week in a row this week as they travel to Durban to take on South Africa. The men in black are undefeated this tournament after making light work of Argentina with a 36-17 win in Buenos Aires last weekend, while the South Africans will be on a high after overcoming the Wallabies in Pretoria. Based on their dominance in this years tournament, the All Blacks are firm favourites with UBET at $1.22, while the Springboks are $4.25. Perhaps the best value bet is South Africa on home soil with nine points start at $2.00?VerdictHistory beckons for this current crop of All Blacks while the knowledge that all-time greats Dan Carter, Richie McCaw, Maa Nonu et al have been part of this run must surely add to their motivation to notch win No.17. They are arguably playing better rugby than they were with those superstars on deck, with the likes of Ben Smith and Barrett dominating in scintillating fashion. The Springboks have enough quality to give the world champions some headaches, but its unlikely they will be able to maintain that level of play long enough to notch an upset.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent back surgery on Tuesday, his fourth operation this year. The latest surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Watkins and was successful, said Drew Rosenhaus, Gronkowskis agent. On May 20, the Patriots star had the most recent operation on the left forearm that he broke on Nov. 18 while blocking for an extra point in a 59-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He had an operation soon after, the first of four on his forearm. He broke it again in the Patriots first playoff game, a 41-28 win over the Houston Texans on Jan. 13, and has had three forearm operations since then. Rosenhaus said the surgery performed last month was expected to be the last on his forearm.dddddddddddd The Patriots open training camp in late July and start the regular season on Sept. 8 at Buffalo. In 43 NFL games, Gronkowski has scored 39 touchdowns, 38 on passes and one on a run. Drafted in the second round out of Arizona in 2010, he was chosen for the Pro Bowl in 2011. In that season, he set NFL records for tight ends with 17 touchdown catches, 18 total touchdowns and 1,327 yards receiving. In 11 games last season, Gronkowski had 55 catches for 790 yards and 11 touchdowns. He missed five regular-season games with forearm and hip injuries and the AFC championship game, a 28-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, after he re-broke his forearm.
