Reference Number: B-133-055
The cartoon has two images. The upper image shows an All Black dressed with a 'rugby crown' and a cloak with a crowd of supporters behind him. One of the crowd represents the N. Z. R. F. U., one represents rugby addicts, one represents the selectors. A British Isles player is opposite him and has just thrown down a gauntlet at his feet as a challenge. The All Black says, 'Gadzooks! a royal pretender!' The lower image shows the All Black in triumph, still wearing the crown. The crowd is jubilant. The British Isles player is lying defeated on the ground realising that 'pretending is no good' (against the All Blacks). In the background the score board reads, British Isles 17 - New Zealand 18. Refers to a rugby match between the British Isles (Lions) and the All Blacks and the strength of the All Blacks in world rugby.
