Sharpe is currently tied alongside David Campese with the most losses by any player against any nation - with the lock and former wing having lost on 18 occasions against the All Blacks.
Campeses 18 losses came from 29 Tests.
The All Blacks dominance of the Bledisloe rivalry is reflected by the fact that the two lists, for most losses and most wins, are dominated by All Blacks and Wallabies.
Only George Gregan's losing record against the Springboks and Justin Marshall's winning record against the same opponent breaks the trans-Tasman theme to the list.
