A flayed frog and a skewered Springbok. Will a walloped Wallaby come next?

The giant Richie McCaw billboard at Kurow (right) has been joined by a couple of rather visceral images after the All Blacks' Rugby World Cup victories over France in the quarterfinals and South Africa in the semis.

They are the work of Justin and Janina Slee, who have produced characters from hay bales on the same spot in recent summers.

Mrs Slee said they had something in mind, possibly involving a mangled marsupial, for the aftermath of Sunday's final.

The kiwi with a 7 is for Kurow's favourite son, Richie McCaw, and 15 is for Highlanders star Ben Smith.
