Watch: Beauden Barrett Takes The Absolute Piss With Unexpected Moment For All Blacks Try

The first meeting between New Zealand and South Africa in this year's Rugby Championship was virtually over by half-time. The All Blacks took a 31-0 lead into the break at the North Harbour Stadium. The game would finish with a record-breaking 57-0 win for the All-Blacks.

New Zealand's first try game after 17 minutes through Rieko Ioane. Four minutes later, it was the other winger, Nehe Milner-Skudder, who would touch down for the second try of the game.

Though the try will be credited to Milner-Skudder, it was Beauden Barrett who ensured it will take a place on the highlight reel of tries from 2017.

After Milner-Skudder intercepted a pass just outside his own 22, he hared into the South African half of the pitch. Barrett was there on his shoulder to receive a pass and looked to be heading towards the try line. That was until he played a brilliant reverse pass to the All Blacks number 14 who then scored with ease.

Ioane's try was also damn good. Though again, it would the man who provided the assist - this time Aaron Smith - who should get all the credit.
