McCaw, who scored two tries against the Wallabies, now has crossed the chalk 23 times.

That is a new world record, overtaking Welshmen Colin Charvis who scored 22 tries.

Former All Blacks number eight Zinzan Record is second on the New Zealand list with 17.

Further, McCaw's tally against Australia now rises to 11 tries, meaning that the Test skipper has scored more tries against a single nation than any other player.

The previous record was held by fullback Christian Cullen, who scored ten tries against the Springboks.
