Right at the start of the Australian DVD rental version of
The Water Diviner there is an ad run by the Intellectual Property Awareness Foundation where a camera man is wearing a
Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks t-shirt.
When you go into the "Extra Features"section of the DVD there is a "Making of the Water Diviner" feature where Rus comes on screen saying how much you have to be relentless in your
approach if you want come out with the goods.
There are even scenes in the "making of" feature where Russell is seen wearing his director's cap...which also happens to be his Rabbitohs hat with a black bunny on it, as well.
In another scene Rus can be heard asking what the score was in a Rabbitoh's game and he says something like , "28 to 8, I think we can safely say that's a win".
The ironic thing is that Russell's team would bow out of the 2015 Rugby League season going down 28 points to 12 to my team The Sharks...which I think we can safely say was a win ;-)
I guess you could say that the water diviner never saw how relentless those Sharks were going to be in 2015 when it came to playing his team.

Some things in life just seemed to be under Fate's control.
And just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, here comes the 2016 season.
Go the Sharkies!!!

On the subject of Shark tales and (turf) wars, right after having written this post I see this news story about two rival sharks -
|By morning, all that was visible of the smaller shark was its tail|
That news story might make for a good movie...or at least a sequel to one?
Hmm...that also reminds me of an old post I wrote about the news and the movie The Water Diviner -
Here is the News...or is It?
Don't mind these fake magazine covers, I'm just clowning around playing the Devil's advocate here. ;-)
