"Dad's very supportive of me dropping rugby - he's even showing me how to do a convincing dive"

26 June 2010

A small boy clutches a soccer ball and tells his mother that his father is very supportive of his dropping rugby and is even showing him how to do a convincing dive. The boy's father is on the floor throwing a tantrum. Refers to the growing popularity of soccer (to father's great distress) because of the All Whites success at the Fifa World Cup in South Africa. 'Diving' is a ploy used by the Italians in particular to buy time by pretending to real injury that is not quite true.
