Updates (all times BST):

FULL-TIME: New Zealand 35-17 South Africa

80 mins: The hooter blares with New Zealand going for the kill. Jutge blows the final whistle and New Zealand celebrate their 20th successive home victory.

76 mins: TRY New Zealand 35-17 South Africa It is game over now as South Africa kick for touch but instead find Carter. He produces a wonderful chip forward which he collects and then feeds the ball inside for McCaw in support who easily touches down. Carter then adds the extras.

75 mins: PENALTY New Zealand 28-17 South Africa
Carter makes it seven penalties after South Africa transgress again.

72 mins: Straight from giving South Africa a glimmer of hope, Montgomery almost hands New Zealand a try after letting the kick-off bounce. The ball rolls dangerously towards the in-goal area and although it is touched down, the video referee rules that there was a knock on.

71 mins: PENALTY New Zealand 25-17 South Africa
It is New Zealand's turn to fall foul of the referee. A series of penalties give South Africa possession and eventually another chance for Montgomery. This time he delivers and the gap is now down to eight.

65 mins: New Zealand are penalised after a line-out and Montgomery lines up an attempt at goal. This is a great chance to get his side back into the game but the ball comes back off the upright, his misses have been costly.

63 mins: TRY New Zealand 25-14 South Africa
Du Preez, who has shone in the number nine jersey, fires a cross-field kick to Breyton Paulse on the wing as a Springbok scrum trundles forward. Paulse has plenty of room in front of him as MacDonald seems slow to cover and the winger touches down for his 24th Test try. Montgomery converts.

58 mins: Weepu limps off with a knee injury and his place is taken by Jimmy Cowan.

52 mins: PENALTY New Zealand 25-7 South Africa
This is getting a bit predictable now and the story goes something like this: New Zealand attack, South Africa's ferocious rush defence comes up, South Africa concede a penalty and Carter kicks for goal.

46 mins: New Zealand inside centre Sam Tuitupou delivers a great ball to set up a move which sees Scott Hamilton touch down. However play is brought back for a forward pass from Muliaina.

44 mins: PENALTY New Zealand 22-7 South Africa
Springbok captain John Smit plays the ball on the floor after tackling McCaw and yet again another penalty is conceded. Carter kicks the three points. The Boks have conceded nine penalties now with Carter kicking five of them.

41 mins: New Zealand get the second half underway, immediately South Africa are penalised for more indiscipline and the home side go for the penalty touch in the Springboks 22. Another throw from hooker Anton Oliver fails to find the jumper.

HALF-TIME: New Zealand 19-7 South Africa

40 mins: TRY New Zealand 19-7 South Africa
Carter's superb sidestep sets up a New Zealand attack. Centre Mils Muliaina is in support, breaks down the line and passes intelligently inside. The ball reaches Weepu and he puts his head down to bundle over the line and complete a clinical move. Carter adds the conversion.

40 mins: Montgomery goes for goal but his kicking radar is malfunctioning in the cold and another penalty goes begging.

37 mins: The Springbok line-out is working like a well-oiled machine today with lock Victor Matfield the star man. Another long throw is caught by the second-rower in the New Zealand half but his pass is misplaced and the All Blacks counter. However, full-back Leon MacDonald kicks straight out.

35 mins: South Africa threaten the New Zealand line after the impressive Du Preez darts through a tiny gap. He is just held up though and the home side is able to clear.

33 mins: PENALTY New Zealand 12-7 South Africa
New Zealand are piling forward but South Africa's defence refuses to take a step backwards and the home side are not really punching any holes. The Boks are conceding needless penalties though and Carter punishes them again.

27 mins: Montgomery has a chance to reply but pushes his kick just left.

26 mins: PENALTY New Zealand 9-7 South Africa
Jutge penalise South Africa at the scrum and Carter is again on hand to kick over from long range which puts his side into the lead for the first time.

23 mins: Fourie and Os du Randt produce two massive tackles to stop New Zealand in their tracks. South Africa are not letting the All Blacks have it all their own way.

21 mins: PENALTY New Zealand 6-7 South Africa
Springbok centre Jaque Fourie is harshly penalised for not staying on his feet as he desperately battles for the ball at the breakdown. Carter fires a fine kick through the posts.

16 mins: Montgomery gets bundled out of bounds by New Zealand skipper Richie McCaw. The blond-haired full-back takes exception to something and the pair have a dust up. It is shortlived and French referee Joel Jutge restores order.

13 mins: Powerful All Blacks scrum-half Piri Weepu receives treatment on his shoulder and although he carries on, he is clearly struggling.

10 mins: South Africa are looking far more imposing than last week, which isn't hard. With their new half-back pairing working well and the pack competing fiercely at the breakdown, the visitors are able to get the ball quickly away from the tackle area.

6 mins: PENALTY New Zealand 3-7 South Africa New Zealand try and get some composure after the shock start. South Africa are penalised for offside and Carter, who has come under immense pressure at the start of this game, slots over the penalty.

1 min: TRY New Zealand 0-7 South Africa
Drama in Wellington as South Africa take a stunning lead after just 17 seconds. Butch James, who has got the nod at fly-half, takes the kick-off and New Zealand's star number 10 Dan Carter tries to clear. His kick is charged down by recalled scrum-half Fourie Du Preez who catches the ball to cross for his second try against the All Blacks. Percy Montgomery adds the extras.

0837: A passionate rendition of the Haka is met by stony faces from the South African team. The stage is set for kick-off.

0835: There are rousing versions of both nations anthems and after God Defend New Zealand, a spectacular firework display takes place over the Westpac Stadium. Now it is the Haka.

0827: The teams are on the field in Wellington and are going through their final preparations before the third game of this Tri-Nations series.

South Africa take on Tri-Nations reigning champions New Zealand in Wellington desperately trying to erase the memories of last weekend's drubbing at the hands of Australia.

The Springboks lost that game 49-0 and the pressure will be on coach Jake White as he tries to lead his side to their first win of the campaign.

New Zealand on the other hand, opened up with victory over Australia and are looking to extend their winning home Test run to 20 matches.

Both sides have made changes, with former New Zealand captain Reuben Thorne returning to the back-row in one of eight alterations for the All Blacks.

South Africa have made five changes, including a revamp at half-back after the ineffectual displays of Jaco van der Westhuyzen and Ricky Januarie in Brisbane.

New Zealand: MacDonald; Howlett, Muliaina, Tuitupou, Hamilton; Carter, Weepu; Tialata, Oliver, Hayman, Jack, Williams, Thorne, McCaw (captain), So'oialo.
Replacements: Hore, Somerville, Rawlinson, Masoe, Cowan, McAlister, Toeava.

South Africa: Montgomery; Paulse, Fourie, Olivier, Habana; James, Du Preez; Du Randt, Smit (captain), Van der Linde, Van den Bergh, Matfield, Tyibilika, Smith, Cronje.
Replacements: Pietersen, Bosman, Januarie, Van Niekerk, Muller, Andrews, Coetzee.
