A website devoted to the annual Tri-Nations rugby tournament between New Zealand, Australia & South Africa
The Tri-Nations Rugby Tournament was first contested in 1996 when South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia formed SANZAR and pitched the Wallabies, All Blacks and Springboks against each other in the premier Southern Hemisphere rugby competition. .
New Zealand won the Tri Nations Rugby Cup in 1996 and 1997, with South Africa claiming the title in 1998. The All Blacks lifted the Cup again in 1999.
A year later Australia raised the Cup for the first time thanks to a Stirling Mortlock penalty goal on the bell against South Africa in Durban.
Australia retained the Tri Nations Trophy in 2001 when Toutai Kefu scored the match-winning try in the dying seconds against the All Blacks at Stadium Australia.
In 2002 the All Blacks won the Tri Nations Cup winning three out of their four matches and they again dominated the series in 2003 with a convincing four out of four victories.
In 2004, after a very close series where all three teams were undefeated on home soil, South Africa emerged victorious securing more bonus points than the other two teams.
In 2005 New Zealand won the TriNations tournament again and then in 2006 even more convincingly New Zealand won the tournament again without having to leave for the South African leg of the tournament. They lost their last match but it meant little as they had already been crowned champions.
