A young man confined to a wheelchair after a football accident is facing financial ruin after losing a court battle for damages. Shane Green's family ordered to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs. As a quadriplegic, Shane Green has overcome some pretty difficult challenges, but never expected to be left out in the cold quite like this. It was nearly 14 years ago when his spine was fractured,

playing in a rugby league game near Taree when the scrum collapsed on him. He sued the Country Rugby League for damages, but yesterday a Supreme Court judge ruled against him, and ordered him to pay all legal costs. It's just totally devastating. I just don't know how to describe the feeling. Shane's lawyers argued he should not have been allowed to play in the front row, given his age, build, and thin neck. It's just another big hit in the guts, another hurdle he has to overcome. While Shane currently works full-time, his family had hoped he'd be awarded enough money to provide for his future and pay for his medical expenses. We just can't believe they would try and destroy our son like this.

Is there any way you can afford this? Not short of selling our home, there's not, no. The Country Rugby League has refused to comment. We thought they would have been more sympathetic to one of their young players. Daniel Sutton, Ten News. Japan is shrugging off international anger against whaling as it resumes the hunt in the Southern Ocean. An Australian Customs vessel is shadowing the fleet, of the controversial kill.

gathering evidence Word of the kill came at an awkward moment for Australia's Foreign Minister to sign an income tax treaty. as he arrived in Tokyo Stephen Smith and his Japanese counterpart agreeing to disagree over the whaling issue. sat down to talk, As the two ministers an Australian Customs vessel was shadowing the Japanese whaling fleet. The crew of the 'Oceanic Viking' blowing the whistle after it witnessed the slaughter of several whales, thought to be minkes. I'm deeply, deeply disappointed that we're seeing whales killed in the Southern Ocean

by Japanese whalers.

Protest vessels from Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd are about to arrive in Australian ports for fuel. Sea Shepherd says the Australian Customs ship should intervene. I'm really surprised of whales being killed - Australia is just taking pictures they should be enforcing the law. Others want higher-level action. Unless we slow things down in trade or bilateral security arrangements, on the Japanese foreign ministry.

When you consider that in the past all we had was talk and yet under the Rudd Labor Government what we've had is action. Sea Shepherd's vessel the 'Steve Irwin' will return to hound the Japanese fleet. You know, we're really quite anxious to get back down there because we have demonstrated we can stop them and when we return I think we can shut them down again. Greenpeace to continue its anti-whaling lobbying in Japan.

And it's that change in public opinion in Japan that could ultimately tip the balance. Murray McCloskey, Ten News. A look at sport with Rob Canning, and tonight's Twenty20 international comes with a warning? Yes, Deb, cricket officials fearing the tension between the sides could fire up a packed MCG tonight. Extra security will flood the 'G to control what's expected to be a world record crowd.

This program is captioned live. Miami police have released the emergency call made on the night Wayne Carey allegedly smashed a glass into his girlfriend's face. Kate Neilson heard describing the former footballer, who left her bleeding. Wayne Carey's alleged attack on Kate Neilson began at a restaurant adjoined to Miami's Mandarin Oriental Hotel. A security guard making a 911 call moments after she was glassed.

The recording reveals Carey abandoned his injured girlfriend.

Ms Neilson heard providing a description of Carey for a police man-hunt.

The two-time premiership captain was found a short time later in that room where Miami police allege he kicked and elbowed two officers. He's due to face assault charges in Florida on February 15. Meanwhile, police back here are still examining evidence they seized from Carey's apartment on Sunday night, including a small quantity of powder and a reported $9,000 in cash.

The former AFL champion has been in hiding since the dramatic arrest while his one-time friend is favoured to take over the Channel Nine job from which Carey was sacked. The Kangaroos legend unwilling to comment. Any thoughts on Wayne Carey's behaviour? No, not at all. Kellie Morgan, Ten News. but we are being warned to prepare for pain in the May Budget. of lying The Opposition accusing Labor about the state of the economy and treating us all like mugs. Drinkers and smokers felt some of the pain today as inflation automatically raised the the taxes on life's simple pleasures. The Prime Minister's warning there's more hurt to come as the Government slashes spending in the May Budget. His Treasurer echoing the message.

There is a substantial inflation problem inherited by the Government, and one we are determined to act on.

That battle cry a direct response to a secret alert the incoming Government received from Treasury of critical times ahead. The Opposition doesn't buy it. Wayne Swan is trying to paint this mythical parallel universe. This is, this is what Labor is all about. They are essentially telling lies about the Australian economy.

Inflation has been running at less than half what it was and with upward pressure, as we know. The Treasurer hit back, showing that underlying inflation in the last three months of the Howard Government hit a 16-year high, which is expected to trigger an official interest rate rise next week. They don't recognise the scale of the problem

for it. Both sides agree on one thing - the tax cuts should be delivered and the Government says they will be. The irony is, that means the pain inflicted elsewhere will be greater. Only Defence will be quarantined from the razor gang. Its budget, in fact, will be boosted. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. A Sydney factory is sparking a power revolution by going green with sunlight. It's expected the huge solar system will be a shining example for the rest of the country. This is Cadbury Schweppes's latest production line and it's got nothing to do with chocolate. It's a 100-kilowatt solar system on the roof of its Huntingwood factory. This is like, "Welcome to the future." 640 panels will power the plant and still save 140 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.

That's the equivalent of taking 35 cars off the road, music to the Environment Minister's ears, who says solar power is very much Australia's future. With energy bills going up, coming at us quickly, delivering on solar energy is an absolute necessity for us and it's happened here today. to show corporate Australia The installation is expected with green energy. what can be achieved

Kate Knight was convicted this week of poisoning her husband in a sick plot to collect a $300,000 payout from his employer. On the couple's seventh wedding anniversary

she laced the curry and wine she prepared for him with antifreeze. The poison put Lee Knight in a coma for four months, causing irreparable kidney damage. She used to wake me up in the middle of the night to tell me that she loved me and I thought that was really good, but obviously now it must have been her conscience playing her. And now there's something else to keep her up at night -

what her own future holds.

Her sentencing hearing has been adjourned to a later date. Lee Knight needs 24-hour care, but he still wants to look after his 9-year-old son.

I want to think about the life I can make for me and Jack. He is the most important thing to me. His marriage and body both now broken, but he's determined to repair his life.

In London, Danielle Isdale, Ten News. Devastating winter storms are wreaking havoc across much of China. Thousands of people rushed to get on trains as public transport returned to normal. They'd been stranded for days because the ice and snow had shut down the system. in the crush to get on board. Many people were injured Others ditched their luggage in an attempt to get home. The storms have also damaged crops, sending up food prices. Those in the hardest-hit areas are having to pay double the usual price. Ancient deep-sea reefs could shed new light on climate change patterns in the Southern Ocean. A special submersible revealing mysteries from a magical underwater world. Venturing into the unknown and to greater depths than ever before, scientists got more than bargained for.

We found corals where we expected to find corals we didn't expect to find corals, and we found corals where so that makes a good success. Using a remote-controlled submersible, researchers travelled 3,000m below the sea surface 60km south-east of Tasmania. They collected samples from live and fossilised deep-sea corals which will help determine the ocean's role in climate change. These corals are natural archives of these sorts of things. Scientists believe the discovery of dead coral beds could hold vital information. We don't know what killed them but we suspect it was some element of climate change. Maybe not recent climate change - it may have happened thousands of years ago or it might be something that happened

in the last couple of hundred years. The samples will now be studied to determine when the newly discovered reefs existed and if their extinction is related to long-term climate patterns. We'll be ageing the corals and we'll try and find out exactly what killed them. This will give us a really good handle on how the ocean has changed. Angelina Anictomatis, Ten News.

Top stories this news hour, a police officer is recovering after being shot in the stomach in Centennial Park this morning, but mystery surrounds the shooting - the same officer was stabbed outside his Randwick home just three months ago. more than 90,000 lightning strikes Sydney experienced in just over four hours last night as wild weather battered the city. The west again bore the brunt, with downed trees taking out roofs, cars and powerlines, to more than 20,000 homes. cutting electricity And Jetstar passengers are furious after being forced

to spend the night on a footpath outside Sydney airport when wild weather forced the cancellation of several flights.

Many travellers are now vowing never to use the budget carrier again. Convicted terror suspect David Hicks is at the centre of a media bidding war and could potentially sell his story for up to $1 million. A gag order expires next month and Hicks's father has confirmed he's received as many as up to 30 offers

to pay for his story. The Prime Minister says it's up to publishers to decide if they're going to break State and Federal laws against profiting from crime. A 2-year-old girl is recovering in hospital after bouncing out the window of a second-storey apartment. Her mother says all landlords should be forced to install security screens. It's enough to make any parent feel horrified.

I knew straightaway something had happened and ran straight to the window and she was just there. It was horrible. Last night, 2-year-old Mainia Daniels fell from this second-storey window at Palm Beach. Playing with friends on a neighbour's bed, the flyscreen wasn't enough to break her fall. She was with all her friends from school, from kindy.

They were all playing and having a beautiful time, and one second... She fractured her skull

and was airlifted to the Mater Hospital in Brisbane. The toddler is now in a serious but stable condition. It's a tragedy

the apartment's resident says could have been averted if her repeated requests to her landlord for security screens hadn't been ignored. It's not about someone breaking in,

it's about children falling out the window. A spokesman for the Residential Tenancies Authority says there's no requirement by law for landlords to provide security screens. That's something these mums say must be changed. It should be illegal. They should have security windows like they have on all the windows up here. It's just pathetic. We need to get this law changed.

It needs to be changed - this is not good enough. On the Gold Coast, Nicky Haydon, Ten News. To the BankWest finance report, and the local share market has had a strong finish for the week.

$1.40 a litre is the average price of unleaded petrol around Sydney tonight, which is slightly lower than yesterday. But we've found it even cheaper in Minto for $1.32. For the second time in a month, pop star Britney Spears has been forced into psychiatric care. the singer has been taken to hospital

I don't care about them right now. I want to drive my car. Britney Spears, just hours before being driven to hospital. Oh my God, would you please get out of the way? I'm scared you're going to drive off? without me. Her tirade against her driver continues. Get out of the car. Get out, get out, get out. Thank you. And you're going to sit right here.? Sit down. Later, police physically removed the 26-year-old from her home to a medical centre to be evaluated by psychiatrists -

the well-orchestrated train of police motorbikes and vehicles

blocking off roads, preventing the usual paparazzi circus. The troubled celebrity's mum, Lynne, told reporters her daughter's doing alright. Y'all please get out of my way. This is the second time in less than a month the singer's been placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold, meaning she's considered a danger to herself or to others. In early January, Spears was taken to hospital after she locked herself in a bathroom, refusing to hand over her children to ex-husband Kevin Federline. Britney's increasingly bizarre behaviour in recent months has been captured by the ever-present paparazzi. One psychiatrist says some stars just don't realise when they need help. Many people who seek psychiatric treatment

have that sort of dialogue in their heads but it might be a little more pronounced with someone who's a celebrity. It's believed a judge may extend the involuntary psychiatric hold to 14 days. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News.

The skipper turned out for an optional training session in a bold bid to prove his fitness. But he lasted less than half an hour. After consulting with the coach, selector and physio, Ricky Ponting was ruled out. With the uncertain nature of Twenty20 cricket and the frantic nature of it, we're just a bit concerned if he has to dive in the first over for fielding and he pulls up very sore, it'll leave us one short, The captain also in doubt for Sunday's tri-series opener against India in Brisbane. Michael Clarke will lead the Twenty20 side.

David Hussey will make his debut alongside brother Mike. The Aussies calling for plenty of support for Andrew Symonds after his week of turmoil. And probably that's the message - when people come out tonight, if they have an opportunity to thank those blokes for the way they've carried the country's flag and represented us, they should do it in a positive light. The face of Australia's crowd control campaign also pleading with fans to show respect and not turn their backs on the Indians.

If the crowd is coming along to do that sort of thing, I would encourage those guys to stay away. But the man at the centre of the controversy is buckling up for a hostile reception.

Cricket's long-running racism row is having ramifications in other sports. Rugby league's Preston Campbell today revealing he fears the treatment of Andrew Symonds Preston Campbell's one of rugby league's most respected Indigenous players. But after seeing what Andrew Symonds has been put through, he'll now think twice about reporting a racial sledge. Personally, if it did happen to me, I probably wouldn't because you do see what happens to Andrew happen and you wouldn't want the fuss.

Campbell believing other players could be put off after seeing Symonds suddenly made to look the villain,

He's a man that's just gone out and stood up for himself and he's, sort of, copping it. part of a 6-man advisory group The Titans utility to assist Australian sport's first reconciliation action plan.

celebrations get under way celebrations get under way when hundreds of players will get

Organisers are expecting more than 20,000 supporters to be part of the inaugural event. Doubts hang over Socceroo Tim Cahill's availability for next week's World Cup qualifier against Qatar, his manager at Everton claiming the midfielder is nursing a hamstring injury. A different tune, though, from Sydney FC coach John Kosmina, prepared to go without his Socceroos stars in next week's A-League semifinal. The boys in sky blue are using the week off to toughen up for the Queensland clash. Just who'll play depends on Wednesday's international. The national team always comes first. and came out with a couple of knocks If Mark Milligan played 90 minutes it'll be a hell of a risk to play him on Friday. That's not saying he won't play. Same for Brosque.

A 1-1 draw at worst will see Sydney advance to the preliminary final. A 19-year-old amateur, Kristie Smith, at the women's Australian Open.

The Aussie fired a 3-under 69 at Melbourne's renowned Kingston Heath. Karrie Webb is 2 shots off the pace. Day two belonged to Smith, who carded six birdies to storm into outright first. Korea's Park Hee Young the other big mover with the flatstick. Meanwhile at the FBR Open in Phoenix, much hype surrounds expanded stadium hole at the 16th.

Aaron Baddeley is fighting to defend his title.
