The All Blacks could set a new World Record against England

The All Blacks are on the brink of setting a new world record when they face England at Twickenham this weekend.

Steven Hansen's side could become the first team score four or more tries for a record 13 consecutive games but face competition from an unlikely source in Namibia.

The All Blacks have equalled their own best run of 12 tests which they achieved in 2016 after they crushed Japan 69-31 in Tokyo on Saturday.

New Zealand's streak of tries started off in their final match of 2017 in which they demolished Wales 33-18, scoring five tries in the process.

They then started the year by by recording eight, seven and four tries against France in June respectively in their 3-0 series win.

After recording a dominant run of six tries in four successive games against the likes of Australia, Argentina and South Africa, the All Blacks further solidified their streak in Japan by recording five against the Wallabies and a whopping 10 against the Blossoms.

Namibia who are also on a special 12-game run of their own faced the likes of Tunisia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Morocco, Kenya, Senegal and Uruguay and could be first to achieve the record as they play Russia a few hours before the clash at Twickenham.
