Lodge, Nevile Sidney 1918-1989 :Halved again! 1962.


The cartoon shows an All Black and a Wallaby leaning against each other. The All Black looks bemused and the Wallaby looks happy. In the foreground a group of people, representing the selectors, a cloud over their heads, are saying "English tour coming up! Now what?" In the background a group of people representing the public are giving their own differing opinions about the team. Refers to the third test between the All Blacks and the Wallabies in 1962. The cartoon must have been drawn before the test was played, in case of a loss, as the third test was won convincingly by New Zealand. The All Blacks had toured Australia earlier in the year and won nine out of ten games, including the two tests. The Australians on tour to New Zealand had won six and lost six, drawing the first test and losing the second and third.
