Watching now - he is articulate, intelligent and inspiring. I can see why the team look up to him

He said he was at Oberon prison, I have done a few shifts there, it is out in the middle of nowhere, and it is freezing in winter.

One blind moment has given him a reputation, but I admire the way that he has turned his life around, he has my respect

I used to go hunt rabbits n foxes with my old man when I was a kid at Oberon, I can tell you now it's the coldest place on earth.

Have heard all the stories about him and how he has turned his life around but it was good to hear it straight from the source.
No wonder he is a leader in the team.

If you drew the map of the world on a cow, life the tail and there is where you'll find Oberon.

Wish we had him in the side this week, but would rather him back 100% rather then under done also Russell you deserve where you got your self. Hard work and determination can pay off, I take my hat off to you
