after a trip to his favourite pub two months ago.

I ordered my first drink and I did

not even have a sip. I sat down and not even have a sip. I sat down and

the whole room started spinning.

Luckily they rang an ambulance and

they took me straight to hospital.

The Dragon of 234 games had

suffered a brain aneurysm. He has

been in hospital ever since.

This is my hardest game this one.

It does not matter how much you

train for this one. It does not

seem to improve much.

A visit from partner Leonie and the

Men of League Foundation sure helps.

They are indebted to those who called the ambulance.

They knew that he was bad. That is

probably what saved his life.

The 68-year-old's balance is gone,

but definitely not his trademark but definitely not his trademark humour.

Could have been worse. I could have

ended up looking like Chook.

Chook will save his comeback for

when his mate is back on his feet.

In 7 weeks' time he will probably

be down the gym working out. That

is the sort of man he is. He won't let anyone beat him.

To get Smith moving again, a

Dragons premiership would do nicely.

Come on boys! Win this one for me!

Bart Cummings will start five of

his Spring Carnival hopefuls in

tomorrow's star-studded Memsie

Stakes at Caulfield. Cox Plate

winner, So You Think, on the

outside, is Bart's and new jockey

Steven Arnold's pick, despite not

having raced for 10 months.

If he comes back 100%, which all

signs are pointing towards, he is in for exciting times.

Bart Cummings' Oaks winner, Faint

Perfume, will also start against

favourite, Shoot Out, and champion

mare, Typhoon Tracy.

Here are the tips for Rose Hill.

We will have all the latest sports

news in sports tonight.

There are a couple of nasty incidents on the roads tonight.

That is correct. Two major

accidents. We have live pictures of

the crash scene. A semi-trailers or

is involved with a car. Police are

there to absorb the oil that has

leaked as a result of that crash.

The second incident is on the

highway from Elizabeth Drive. Based

stretch back from the M5. Singer

the did cues from Bankstown. -- significant queues.

Whether you are inside or outside,

at work or at play, Tim Bailey

Here's another real I was on the escalator

This program is captioned live.

Tim Bailey is going to tell us all

about your weekend. This time of

the week feels so good. We have

some good news for you. A couple of

beautiful blue sky days. If Friday

night is any indication, this is

going to be a special weekend in

Sydney. 18 degrees, fine and sunny

Saturday. The same for Sunday.

Low cloud crosses the South East.

It is causing scattered showers and

snow. High cloud drifts over the

interior, not producing rain. A

little bit of patchy rain along the

west coast of WA. On Saturday, a

high zone will keep much of the

country dry. Southerly winds will

deliver a few showers to southern

Victoria and Tasmania. Warmer wind

will increase over WA. Showers over Queensland.

Only the odd light shower over the

western slopes of NSW. Isolated

showers over southern Victoria and

Tasmania. Mostly dry elsewhere

around the country. More than 50

centimetres of snow has fallen

across the Australian Alps. The

official death is 1.9 metres. That

is the best it has been since 2004.

It will be a great day to be out

there skiing. The water is 18 there skiing. The water is 18

degrees behind me. Fine and sunny

skies for the weekend with top

temperatures of 18 degrees.

That is officially the weekend.

Thank you for joining us. You can

join us on Facebook as well.
