Lodge, Nevile Sidney, 1918-1989 :Big game trophy. The 4th test finaliser. 1965.

Reference Number: B-137-285

The cartoon is part of a group of three drawn before a rugby test was played so the cartoonist covered all possible options. This cartoon shows an All Black standing triumphant over a Springbok player carrying a ball that reads, fourth test finaliser. At his feet are two other rugby balls representing the first and second tests. The Springbok player clutches his ball which represents the third test. In the background the South African players can be seen trudging home and a kiwi stands above an unhappy Springbok. Refers to a possible result of the fourth test of the 1965 Springbok tour. The match was played in Auckland, 18 September 1965. New Zealand won the game 20 - 3, also winning the test series 3 - 1. This cartoon is the one eventually used.
