Lodge, Nevile Sidney 1918-1989 :Draw. 4th test. The finaliser! - The equaliser! 1965.
Reference Number: B-137-296
The cartoon is part of a group of three cartoons drawn before the match was played to cover the three possible outcomes of the test. This cartoon is in three sections. First we see an All Black, with a kiwi at his side, and a Springbok rugby player, with a springbok at his side, running to catch a ball that represents the fourth test. A win for the All blacks would be the finaliser of the series and a win for the Springboks would be the equaliser of the series. The second part shows all four colliding in the middle. The final part shows them lying on the ground, the rugby ball has been squashed and the air escaping from it has formed a cloud reading draw. The All Black player says 2 and a half to 1 and a half - we win. Refers to the final match of the 1965 Springbok tour. The All Blacks were victorious in the game and won the series 3 - 1.
