Summary
Discusses the English cricket tour of England in 1968 in the light of prevailing attitudes of the time, both in Australia and in England; argues that the performances of boomerang throwing by members of the cricket team and Dick-a-Dick's demonstrations of defence with his shield were of more interest than the cricket; mentions other Aboriginal young people who were taken to England to be shown off
