Sanders, James E, fl 1949-1970 (Sandy) :The try. 10 June 1970.

Reference Number: A-311-6-069

The cartoon shows two lawyers holding up a scroll titled, ye writ of ye ancient ne exeat regno. An All Black has just run right through the middle of it, to get to the try line, leaving a gaping hole. Both the lawyers look surprised. In the background two protestors holding protest signs have also tried to block the path of the All Black to the try line. Refers to an application to Justice Hardie Boys, applied to the Supreme Court in June 1970, for the issue of prerogative writ ne exeat regno to prevent officials and members of the All Blacks rugby football team from departing New Zealand to travel to South Africa, Southern Rhodesia and the former mandated territory of South West Africa, on the grounds that the proposed tour would be prejudicial to the interests of New Zealad. The case was Parsons v. Burk and the application was turned down.
