The cartoon is part of a group of three that were drawn before the test was played. The cartoonist has drawn a separate cartoon for each of the three possible results. This cartoon shows a Springbok standing triumphantly over an All Black. He is holding a rugby ball that reads 'the fourth test equaliser'. At his feet is another ball representing the third test. The All Black is holding two rugby balls representing the first and second tests. In the background South African players are leaving for home looking fairly happy and a springbok is ramming a kiwi out of the picture. Refers to a possible result of the fourth test of the 1965 Springbok tour. The fourth test was played in Auckland, 18 September 1965. New Zealand won the match 20 - 3, also winning the series 3 - 1.
