Henderson G D (HEN) :But we can't make him drink. The Christchurch Star, 1959.

Reference Number: A-317-065

The cartoon shows a donkey with it's body in the shape of a rugby ball, representing the N.Z Rugby Union. To his left is a feeding tray, reading to Sth. Africa right or wrong, full of money. The donkey is reluctantly being pulled away from this tray by a rope, representing public opinion, to another trough full of water reading, no maoris no tour. Refers to the `No Moaris - No Tour' protest movement against the 1960 tour to South Africa. Although unmoved by the protest the rugby union did cancel the 1967 tour because Moaris were not welcome.
