Watch out, Nor­man

Dairy News Australia - - OPINION -

Dairy Australia’s Nor­man Repa­choli sat next to a fel­low speaker at the Queens­land Dairy­farm­ers’ Or­gan­i­sa­tion con­fer­ence, un­aware he was the only per­son in the room not to recog­nise the Queens­land leg­end in their midst. Un­be­knownst to Norm, the Work­Safe am­bas­sador was none other than rugby league leg­end (and Queens­land wool­grower) Shane We­bcke, one of the tough­est play­ers to rep­re­sent his state and coun­try. When the self-dep­re­cat­ing We­bcke was in­tro­duced to speak and sub­se­quently told Nor­man had no idea who he was, he replied: “He must be a Vic­to­rian.” We­bcke gave an emo­tional talk on how his father was killed while work­ing on a farm, and the con­tin­ual im­pact on his fam­ily.
