"Another of our fallen dead. The tomb of the top rugby player not motivated by money..." 26 April, 2008
Reference Number: DCDL-0006283
Shows the back view of a huge statue of a fallen rugby player standing on a plinth in a cemetery. A man points out the statue to his son describing it as 'another of our fallen dead' (apart from soldiers). The reason the rugby player is commemorated in this way is because he was a player not motivated by money. Cartoonist laments the way modern sport seems often to be motivated by money. The cartoon was drawn near Anzac Day when people were thinking about other fallen heroes.
