"Folk said the stadium would be a white elephant." "And now it's a dead duck!" "A Mallard, no less!" 27 November, 2006.

Reference Number: DCDL-0002723

Three ducks stand chatting together while a fourth duck stands miserably in the background wearing a dunce's hat with a 'D' on it. The ducks are talking about the failure of the waterfront stadium option as the preferred site for the 2011 Rugby World Cup. They say it was predicted to be a white elephant, and is now a dead duck, a mallard no less. Refers to Minister, Trevor Mallard, having to give away his preferred option, the waterfront stadium.
