In 1956 New Zealand Māori were thrashed 37–nil by South Africa. In this cartoon one Māori man, embarrassed by the outcome, comments to another, 'I think I'll take my name off the Māori [electoral] roll!' The cartoon was by Harry Dansey, of Ngāti Tūwharetoa and Te Arawa, who later became the race relations conciliator.
