I would like to ask your view of the Maynard-Brayshaw incident.
Yeah. I’ve caught it on the telephone, one view of it, one angle. Seems to be like he’s within the air. Really, I’ll return a step. I hope Angus is OK. That’s my first thought. I hope he’s OK. I’ve met him a few occasions socially. He’s a ripping man. Hopefully, it’s not too unhealthy for him as a result of he’s had a number of concussions. My ideas exit to him. I hope he’s OK.
