Hailed already by some as all-time greats, New Zealand will be venerated in rugby folklore if they become the first team to win back-to-back World Cups by beating Australia at Twickenham Saturday.The All Blacks swept aside the Wallabies four years ago on the way to ending their 24-year wait for a second triumph and Steve Hansen's side have unquestionably been the dominant force since.New Zealand have suffered only three defeats in 53 games spanning the four years after their 2011 triumph and Saturday's trans-Tasman battle will signify a changing of the guard for the men in black.Center Matt Giteau, 33, is the lone survivor from the last Australian team to play in the World Cup final, in 2003 when they lost to England.
