Brant Webb and Todd Russell, trapped down in that mine in Beaconsfield, Tasmania, have been talking to their rescuers as the final stage of digging commences.
“So we are trying to talk to them about things that they can relate to, and things we can keep on an even keel and keep their spirits steady. We might get on to topics such as football, and things they can really grasp onto.”
Yikes. I wonder if they’ve been told about the Freo/Saints game.
PS. Friday morning: I wonder if I’m going to get my footy tipping 7/8 last week downgraded to a 6/8?
