The All Blacks are the most dominant Rugby Union team in World Cup history, but it took Typhoon Hagibis to end their 100 per cent record in the pool stage.

Before their match against Italy, the All Blacks had played 31 matches and won 31 matches in the pool stage of Rugby World Cups.

However, Typhoon Hagibis has forced organisers to cancel two matches at the Rugby World Cup in an unwanted 32-year first for the event.

Matches scheduled for Saturday between England and France, and New Zealand and Italy have been abandoned, with organisers describing their historic decision as "regrettable".

Despite the All Blacks topping pool B, the announcement the match would be cancelled has shattered some All Black records.

With the contests ruled a 0-0 draw and both teams awarded two points, the All Blacks lose their 100 per cent record.

The draw will also snap a 17 match winning streak at World Cup’s stretching back to their quarter-final loss to France in 2007.

Since the 2007 World Cup loss, New Zealand has lifted the Webb Ellis trophy at the last two tournaments.
