Lithuania create new Test record

LITHUANIA'S 18th consecutive Test win at the weekend surpassed the international rugby record held by New Zealand and South Africa.

Lithuania beat Serbia 77-5 on Saturday for their 18th straight victory since May 2006, including wins over a dozen different countries in Europe's fourth tier. New Zealand's All Blacks won 17 Tests from September 1965 to June 1969, and they were matched by South Africa's Springboks from August 1997 to November 1998.
