Reference Number: B-134-229

The cartoon is in four parts. The first part shows the All Blacks winning 14 - 9 against the Scottish rugby team. The second part shows a husband saying to his wife, having just watched the game, I knew we'd do them! His wife replies, that's not what you were saying an hour and a half ago. The third part shows two men in a pub. One of them says, whatever the English sports writers say, I reckon the All Blacks are a good team! The other replies, indeed, indeed! And we are still a great rugby nation. The final part shows a man who had a bet with a Scottish man, the New Zealander is saying, Let's see, I had a dollar's worth at five to one on the All Blacks, didn't I? Refers to the All Blacks defeating Scotland during the 1972 tour of the British Isles. It was also the first time New Zealanders were able to see live coverage of a rugby match on tv.
