Kevin Rudd left the gate open yesterday. No-one, no-one, repeat, His Deputy Julia Gillard could by rights demand Treasury. from Julia Gillard's ambitions. Time to shut the gate. The core members of my economic team will be Wayne Swan as treasurer, Lindsay Tanner as minister for finance

Labor now asking who would take over as treasurer when Mr Costello replaces Mr Howard. That's well into the next term. We'll get around to those things once we're through an election. The Prime Minister has ruled out calling the election this Grand Final weekend, but poll fever is certainly stirring the politicians. Tony Abbott using the shocking treatment of a woman forced to miscarry in a Sydney hospital toilet to score points.

Don't vote Labor because State Labor has created this problem and Federal Labor would just make the problem worse. Kevin Rudd demanding John Howard pull him into line. A miscarriage is a tragedy for any family - and a miscarriage is a tragedy Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. Australia is taking action against Burma after the killing and injuring of monks involved in anti-government marches. Military authorities are clamping down further by raiding monasteries to round up protest leaders. It's the answer everyone expected from Burma's brutal military leaders. Gunfire greeted defiant monks and protesters

as they gathered for their ninth day of demonstrations. Tear gas followed. A cloud shrouded the most sacred Buddhist shrine, the Shwedagon Pagoda, where monks had started their marches, people running in panic - clashes caught on hidden cameras. TRANSLATION: We were rounded up and charged with batons by the police. The monks responded merely by reciting prayers. People fled from the scene.

About 30 monks were badly hurt and hospitalised.

Three monks were killed, others showed their injuries. At one point, protesters vented their fury on a motorbike thought to belong to a police spy. Burma's secretive generals shut down the mobile phone network, trying to stop these images escaping abroad, but failed to block the Internet. So even though I put out the news, or everything outside the wall,

they don't even - they don't actually care for, they don't even think twice to kill people. Protesters gathered across the world, voicing anger over the brutal response and echoing condemnation from political leaders. It's an appalling situation and I join other international leaders in condemning what the regime is doing. We're going to introduce some targeted financial sanctions against regime leaders. When it comes to Burma and the abuse of human rights, the international community, including Australia, must speak with one strong, united voice. The UN Security Council has agreed to send an envoy to Burma, but there's no guarantee he'll be allowed to enter. Already in the last few hours Burmese security forces have pulled hundreds of monks from their beds, trying to head off a 10th day of protests. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. A dramatic shootout for Australian soldiers in Afghanistan as they repelled an attack by Taliban fighters. The fire fight erupted as the diggers patrolled near Tarin Kowt alongside Afghan army troops. Australian soldiers bringing heavy firepower to bear in the 4-hour battle. Prep your boys up. Let them know one bloke's already been (bleep) hit twice in the backplate of his (bleep) flackie.

The Defence Department says the Taliban suffered heavy casualties but won't discuss specific details. No Australians were hurt. Tim Webster with a look ahead to sport and the Grand Final has one young Manly supporter kicking goals of his own. Yes, 13-year-old Alex Ma was never expected to walk or talk, but with the support of his beloved team, anything is possible. Travelling from China, one family with Grand Final fever. (All cheer) Go, Manly! Manly to win! Just for the game and for Alex and we just wanted to do it as a family, such a special time. Son Alex has cerebral palsy.

And for the last six months the Manly Footy Club has been helping him with rehabilitation after major surgery.

Players and the team physio even teaching Alex to walk. COMMENTATOR: Nine years ago doctors said 'Big Al' would never walk or talk again. He recently discarded his wheelchair and tonight this 13-year-old from China is living out his dream. He's our inspiration, he's our 18th man. He trains with the team. He never misses training, he's been to New Zealand, to Townsville, to Canberra. He's been with us all the way, he's our lucky charm. And so, today, a time to say thanks. Ah, they're going to win and the Storm are going down. If they win Alex will do the victory lap with the team, so we believe they are going to win. Alex and his family head back to China next week, but he'll be back for the 2008 season. In the meantime, Manly will continue their support with his rehabilitation with coaching over the Internet.

Proof you don't have to play the game to be a winner. We're already winners. Absolutely. Gabrielle Boyle, Ten News. And today's Grand Final breakfast was the last of the official appearances for the two teams before the big game. Manly soaked up the atmosphere of their first season decider in 10 seasons. Later, why their coach doesn't mind his team being the most hated. Also, the Wallabies wrap rookie fly half Berrick Barnes in cotton wool.

A battle to recover workers' entitlements from a failed trucking company - that's next. Plus, the brand new train station that will be used by thousands of Sydney commuters.

And look what's just flown in -

Sacked workers gathered outside the locked compound again today, demanding their back pay and leave entitlements.

While administrators look for the money, union leaders have begun briefing lawyers. to examine all options We certainly need for the legal fight that's ahead of us. And we're not discounting anything at this point. The Government says its safety net for workers' entitlements will kick in once McArthur and its associated companies are placed into liquidation. A Sydney Rivercat master has been committed to stand trial

over a deadly crash. His vessel hit a dingy, killing a fisherman just a few metres from Luna Park. When the Dawn Fraser RiverCat collided with a small tinny, killing fisherman Peter Karatasas in January this year, Ezra Hilkiah was at the helm. Today he appeared in court, charged with negligent navigation causing death. He's going to defend the charge.

A water police investigator gave evidence the Sydney Ferries RiverCat Master ploughed straight into the dinghy, saying: Witness reports at the time claimed the RiverCat was doing tremendous speed. But Mr Hilkiah's defence barrister today argued there's no evidence the skipper was going at excessive speed, in the area at the time. saying there was no speed limit

He also denies he was blinded by the sun. The water police have re-enacted this crash and today played a video to the court, showing even at high speed police were able to stop a RiverCat hitting a dingy. They argue the skipper should have been able to avert this crash by making only a slight turn. However the RiverCat master's lawyer lashed out,

labelling the police tests as amateurish and incompetent,

arguing in the mock-ups:

the fact an unfortunate accident happened But the magistrate ordered him to stand trial, finding there is a reasonable prospect a jury may convict him. Jacinta Hocking, Ten News.

A compulsive gambler who tried to sue Star City Casino has lost his bid for damages.

Behrouz Foroughi claimed he was allowed to gamble away more than $600,000, despite being on the casino's excluded persons list. But a Supreme Court judge has dismissed his claim that Star City was negligent in letting him play, saying he should have taken responsibility for his own conduct. And Mr Foroughi's luck just got worse,

the judge ordering him to pay the casino's legal costs. A first glimpse tonight of Sydney's newest train statio. The Premier and his Transport Minister inspecting Macquarie Park Railway Station, a key part of a $2 billion line connecting Epping and Chatswood via North Ryde. It features two tunnels and three underground stations. The line expected to open next year. This is the future of train travel in NSW.

This is up there with the best in the world. The Opposition says the new line is half the size of the original plan, but twice the price. A crocodile which chewed off the heads of his female partners has moved to the Central Coast. The new star of the Australian Reptile Park has flown in from Darwin in time for the school holidays and started off with a lap of honour. Nicknamed 'T-Rex' and 'Jaws' for his overly large teeth and huge appetite,

the 5m 700kg saltie is on the hunt for a new name. He replaces the zoo's former top croc, Eric, who died from a bacterial infection when stormwater run-off infected his habitat.

The Government expects the taste and smell of our water supplies to be affected, but there's no risk at this stage to health. And the Royal North Shore Hospital crisis deepens with more claims of inadequate care. Another woman now says she was forced to miscarry in a toilet after being ignored by staff. Experts believe the horror stories will continue

because the hospital system is so stressed. Another celebrity has joined the race to enter federal politics at the coming election.

The Australian share market is continuing its record-breaking run.

And petrol around Sydney, unleaded selling for an average of $1.32 a litre - up seven cents since yesterday. We've seen it as low as $1.20 at Chester Hill.

Many women will not be surprised to hear there's been a change in the happiness gap. It seems after three decades men finally have more reason to smile.

It's not something we think about often

but there's apparently been a changing of the guard on who is happier. After 30 years of being the carefree sex, it seems women are now less happy than men. The reality is that it's very hard to have a great career and raise a great family and have a clean house.

It's called the happiness gap, and it's growing in men's favour. Not satisfied with just a career, women are now pressured with an ever-increasing to-do list, which they are happy to share. Guys are just - they can go out after work and have a drink and come home and everything is there for them. The bathroom, for example - I give it a good scrub whereas he does the dodgy job, I suppose.

The Pennsylvania University study also showed

men are overall working less hours than women. I think it's easier for the lads. I'd love to be finished at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. And in their free time it's more mates and sport than making dinner. you gotta have time in your cave. Yeah, you gotta do that stuff, On the golf course, or sailing or whatever, in the pub with the mates

so blokes have got it made - I wish I could come back as one.

But it's not all bad news for women. Another study shows many feel less guilty about being a working mum. Instead it's the dads that feel increasingly pulled between work and family life. Why do I want to work 60 or 70 hours a week and never see my wife, or kids or friends or whatever? So the message, maybe, is that there's a happy balance everyone can, at least, aim for.

We had a sneak peek at her wedding dress last week. Now the entire Diana collection is ready to go on show in Sydney. Easily the most personal insight into the late princess,

the collection includes childhood toys and home videos shot by her father, practising her ballet steps. showing the young beauty There's jewellery and tiaras, a collection of her most famous and glamorous frocks and of course the wedding dress and its enormous train.

And some moving moments, including Elton John's notes from his funeral performance of 'Goodbye England's Rose'. The exhibition opens at the Powerhouse museum on Saturday. The Dutchess of Cornwall is the latest royal to be immortalised in wax, Camilla Parker Bowles finally finding her place at Madame Tussauds, two years after she married Prince Charles. The museum only decided to exhibit her likeness

Melbourne and Manly have crossed paths for the last time before Sunday's decider, during today's traditional Grand Final Breakfast. Meanwhile last year's winning captain Darren Lockyer reckons Manly's Anthony Watmough could be theX-Factor that sends Melbourne to consecutive Grand Final defeats. at today's Grand Final breakfast, The menu was tempting but these players are hungry for more than just omelette and bacon, Grand Final glory or heartbreak days away,

tipped to have a huge say and there's one man in who gets the spoils. Do you call Anthony Watmough an x-factor? I think he's been playing some good football and when he's playing well Manly have been very hard to beat. Watmough with the most tackle busts of any player in the NRL. Last year my form was a bit down and this year I just had to run a bit harder and use more feet

and all the hard work that we did as a team and as an individual in the preseason is definitely starting to pay off. And he believes coach Des Hasler should be signed long-term to keep him and the Eagles flying high. Yeah, get him in there sign him up. He's doing a great job and he's great for the players. He's brought the club from obscurity - we were nothing there a couple of years ago, but Dessie's bought us back to finishing second in the competition.

Last year's shock defeat by Brisbane is still causing the Storm some anxious moments. It was probably the worst feeling I've ever had in my career for all the boys there. You still get pretty bad memories of that night.

At the NSW Parliament a rare sight as some members showed their true colours. One question waiting to be answered

is whether Sydneysiders embrace Manly as their team on Sunday night. After all, the Sea Eagles are a club many of us have grown up loving to hate. People hate Manly and that's great.

The adage that fans follow two sides - and the side that' playing Manly - their own side I think that's great and that won't change. Melbourne training late today, among the interested observers

their 1999 premiership-winning coach Chris Anderson,

Test coach Ricky Stuart also calling in. In the wake of flyhalf Stephen Larkham's latest surgery the Wallabies aren't taking any chances with his understudy. Berrick Barnes will be kept in cotton wool

for the final pool game against Canada. Coach John Connolly has made numerous changes for the match with Julian Huxley at flyhalf. With the World Cup finals just nine days away and the Wallabies odds of winning it slipping,

David Lyons summed up best what everyone is thinking. and the sooner we have him back the better. But he won't be back soon and team officials are privately whispering that he's played his last Test,

The coaching staff is already considering flying in a replacement. We've discussed that. We also discussed it with Scott Staniforth. News of Larkham's second operation has rocked the World Cup.

sports paper 'L'equipe', This is the famous French the headline stating, "Larkham - down on one knee." Which brings us to this man - 21-year-old Berrick Barnes, with a gigantic amount of pressure to deal with in coming weeks. You don't make the moment more important than it is. He's just got to do what he does and do that well and then we're right. The stage is set for Berrick - for a guy to come in who hasn't had a lot of Test experience

and doesn't really realise how good he is. A makeshift side named to play Canada on Saturday but Scott Staniforth is still yet to prove his fitness. George Smith will captain Australia for the first time. to take that role. Rob Canning, Ten News. History in France this morning. Georgia won their first game at a rugby World Cup.

CHEERING Their prayers answered though. They held off a furious second-half comeback by the Americans, sparking jubilant scenes and a rousing victory salute.

AFL, and an incredible crowd of more than 12,000 has watched

Geelong prepare for Saturday's AFL Grand Final against Port Adelaide. Geelong will start favourites to win their first premiership in 44 years, and the pressure of the big game is certainly starting to show,

the large media scrum in their sights just before training got under way. You have no access to this area so please leave. You're being very rude. Who are you? Final preparations will conclude tomorrow with the traditional street parade then both teams will get a chance to have a last look at the MCG.

And all the AFL Grand Final action is here on Ten. Our day-long coverage starts from 8am with the traditional breakfast then it continues right through to the big game from 2:30. Sydney FC's marquee player Juninho has been named in the squad to take on Newcastle on Saturday at the Sydney Football Stadium.
