League's latest disgrace - Nate

Myles suspended for defecating in a

hotel all way. He wondered when the

players will learn. A security

guard foils a hold up on a Sydney

Street. The world prepares to say

goodbye to Michael Jackson. Also, a

blow for low-paid a lawyer's blow for low-paid a lawyer's

missing out on a wage right. Swans

star Barry Hall on why he is

retiring. I cannot promise they

will not be another indiscretion.

We begin with rugby league's latest

disgrace. Rooster star Nate Myles

has apologised and said he was sick

when he was found naked and

defecating in a hotel corridor.

While he has been suspended for six

matches and his club fined for matches and his club fined for

$50,000, the case is far from one

off of. He is the latest in a

string of league bad boys but Nate

Myles has it that defined a new

logo. Nate Myles discuss of fellow

guests in this hotel, after a night

of drinking with his team-mates he

was found naked in a corridor. He

later defecated in the car will.

This is what his manager said. He

is extremely embarrassed and sorry.

The NRL and it Roosters have

punished him. The punishment, a 6-

match suspension means he will miss

out on a place in the Queensland

State of Origin team. It is

disappointing he made that decision.

It is not a part of the who we are.

Ma's excuse is that he had a

stomach bug and have blocked out of

his hotel room. He has paid for

cleaning. He is disappointed, he

ate only heard the news tonight.

You wonder when the players will

learn. Enough players have been

involved in Mr Mayne has to field involved in Mr Mayne has to field a

role. whole team - often alcohol played a

role. The Roosters sponsor Samsung

said it is disgusted. And in a

statement the clubs said.

After being fined $50,000 by the

NRL, it did not face up today and

refused interview request. An event

planned for tomorrow to celebrate

sport involving Samsung, the Roosters has been cancelled.

A security guard has be disarmed a

bank robber during a press and hold

up at a bank in organ. The ban did

escape but let behind a vital clue.

The result from its owner, this is

the short and bolt action of rubble

that the bank robber used to

terrify customers and staff. The

weapon discharge into the floor, as

the band it struggled with a

security guard. It was the cash he

was trying to deposit on behalf of

a local business that was the

gunman's target. He had a trouble

inside the bank and then chased the

banner outside the bank. He was

quite heroic. Wearing a barrack --

balaclava the robber escaped with

thousands of dollars. Women were

panicking, there was a lady on the

floor. They found a knife with the floor. They found a knife with the

getaway driver was waiting. They

just sort of run-up to see what has

happened, then I noticed they had

hit the car. We are looking for

witnesses who may have seen the

vehicle or offender. Play is

counting on the fact that they have

left behind some pieces of evidence.

This could be in the form of DNA or

fingerprints on the gun. The start

had been offered counselling and

the entire route was captured on

security camera. Residents were

forced to run for cover when a

gunfight erupted in Fairfield

overnight. A volley of bullets

struck a home in France as street.

They smashed a bedroom window and

hit her events. Police are

investigating whether shots were

fired back in retaliation after

bolts without much in a house

directly across the street. But

houses were occupied, but no-one

was injured. Police do not believe

it was gang related but a have

urged witnesses to come forward.

More than a million or minimum wage

earners have been dealt a blow, a

missing out on a pay rise. Unions

say out lowest-paid will lose money.

For age care worker at Tracy Bryant,

live on a minimum wage means living

at her parents' home. She believes

she deserved a pay rise. I would

like to see other people who earn a

lot more, tried for a little while.

For the first time the minimum wage

of a 13 -- $14.31 an hour has been

frozen. This decision has been

grumbling motivated by to kick low-

paid workers in work.

paid workers in work. There is a

balance to be struck here, we do

not believe that the Fair Pay

Commission has struck the right

balance. Employers have sought a

freeze, but argued there was no

obligation for high income earners

to follow suit. More than 1.3

million Australia's are facing real

wage cuts due to inflation. This

decision is appalling. It

disrespect the capacity of low-paid

people to make ends meet. The as

well be the final act of the Fair

Pay Commission, the replacement

month. For low income earners,

there will be no additional tax

cuts or stimulus payments. A

never saw a Michael Jackson concert

though. He was a gift to the

great honour. I have never won

entered the room. Barry Hall spoke

very frankly about the anger

management issues he has had in the

latter part of his career. He spoke

about his fears that they could

affect his life after 40 if he did

not sort them out. He said it was a

tough decision to quit but one that

he was comfortable with. I have

done a lot at this football club

and I'm very proud of it. I think

if I play on and I cannot promise

that there will not be another

indiscretion. I cannot explain the

last one, so I cannot promise that.

I think it is a risk for me and

before all club if I do go on,

things could turn really ugly. Then

I will not be allowed to walk away

with my head held high. A what does

the future hold for Barry Hall? He

has not ruled out there playing

footie. He said it would be

footie. He said it would be

difficult to play it against the

Swans. He is thinking about a

boxing career and there was one

other option he did discuss today.

We are in the process of sending an

application to sit on the AFL

tribunal committee. So there's a

few things to bring about. The

Swans will hold a special tribute

to Barry Hall when they host

The mother of 7-month-old twins

found dead in a Perth home was being treated for post-natal

depression. The bodies of the boy

and girl were found by their father

late yesterday, lying beside their

unconscious mother in the lounge

room. She's in a critical condition

in hospital, police believe it

could be an attempted murder-

suicide. It appears at this time

she may have taken an overdose of

prescription drugs. It's been really upsetting for everybody.

We've all got young kids, they all

play together. Police hope to speak

to the twin's mother tomorrow. Their distraught father remains under sedation.

Optometrists and lighting experts

have been called in to investigate

another embarrassing fault on

Sydney's newest rail line. Train

drivers are getting sick from

strobing lights in the Epping to

Chatswood link, raising fears about passenger safety.

10,000 passengers a day are

boarding Sydney's latest piece of

rail infrastructure. At no extra

cost, they get quite a light show

as well. It's like something out of

'Star Wars'. At 80km/h that strobing effect's going fairly

quickly past you. And it's 12km

quickly past you. And it's 12km

long. Train drivers say it's giving them headaches, nausea, even

dizziness. One was hospitalised. A

dizziness. One was hospitalised. A

driver did collapse and was taken

to hospital and he believed it was

because of this. Railcorp

immediately changed the rosters so

drivers weren't exposed to the

lights as often. Many now keep

their cabin blinds down to reduce

the glare. Not good enough

according to the union, when a

driver can be in charge of keeping

up to 2,000 passengers safe.

There's a potential safety issue,

I'm not underestimating or denying

that drivers have raised concerns.

Railcorp has called in optometrists

and lighting experts to investigate

if the lights are to blame.

Whatever the problem is, we will

get to the bottom of it and we will

fix it. It's the latest in a plague fix it. It's the latest in a plague

of problems. The new line was late,

over-budget, there are already over-budget, there are already

large cracks in the tunnel and an

issue with noise pollution. We know

that driver safety and passenger

safety is being compromised, and

again the State Government is slow to

to act. Engineers will determine

how the strobing can be reduced

long term, but whether taxpayers

have to fund the bill is unclear.

Barry Hall has quit the Sydney

Swans and possibly AFL, fearing

He's the tough guy who's made the

tough call - the former Swans

captain looked in the Hall of

Mirrors and admitted he's lost

control. It is a real risk for me

if I do go on, things will turn

really ugly. Hall says he can't

his opponents through more pain. We

this stuff out. A grateful Roos

says Hall took the tough decision

out of his hands, but whatever happens he'll always be welcome

back at Sydney. Despite all the

baggage, there is one inescapable

fact. We wouldn't have won the

premiership without him. He says he

doesn't know what he'll do next -

both boxing and a move to another

I've sustained a small muscle tear

which has ruled me out of the first

Test match. Yes, I'm disappointed

but it's not the end of the world.

The loss of the returning paceman

is a huge setback. But the team's

putting on a brave face. It doesn't

matter what players you've got - if

you're at the top of your game, we certainly

certainly feel we can beat any team
