Lodge, Nevile Sidney, 1918-1989 :Just scrambled to a draw. 1971.

Reference Number: B-137-361

The cartoon shows an All Black diving into the corner to score a try with a ball that reads, 4th test. He is being tackled by a Lions player in the process. In the background the score board reads British Isles 2 - New Zealand 2. The New Zealand players and spectators are jubilant in the background. Refers to the test series against the British Isles in 1971. The cartoon was not published as it was drawn before the 4th and final test and was drawn in case of an an All Black victory in the test, therefore making the series a draw. However the final test resulted in a 14 - 14 draw. New Zealand lost the series.
