To sports news now with Mark Beretta Over

to Beretts for sport. and the AFL's time-keeping issue is down for the count. The League says it won't install countdown clocks at its grounds.

Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse was livid with the time-keepers after Saturday night's one point loss to the Swans. He says the clock continued to tick

after the umpire had called for it to be stopped when Amon Buchanan went down with cramp in the dying stages. The AFL says it will look at the possibility of umpires being directly wired to time-keepers. In Rugby League, the New South Wales and Queensland teams for Wednesday week's State of Origin decider will be named today. Maroons' selectors say

injured utility Tonie Carroll is not out of contention after he trained strongly this week.

Braith Anasta is expected to keep his place

in the Blues' starting side ahead of Trent Barrett. Craig Wing, Danny Buderus and Luke Rooney are set to be included, despite battling injuries. Argentina will play Brazil for the Confederations Cup on Thursday morning

after defeating Mexico 6-5 on penalties in Hanover.

Mexico took the lead in extra time,

but Figueroa levelled the match and sent it to penalties.

Argentine keeper Lux then made the crucial save, before before Cambiasso slotted home the winner.

American Taylor Dent believes he has the upper hand heading into tonight's match

against third seed Lleyton Hewitt at Wimbledon. Dent says his straight-sets win over the Australian at the Adelaide Hardcourt Titles in January gives him a psychological edge. England is into the final of the one-day tri-series

after beating Bangladesh by five wickets in Leeds. It means they will now play Australia at Lords on July 2. Bangladesh made 208 from its 50 overs. Paceman Andrew Flintoff took four wickets and only just missed out on a hat-trick. England was never in trouble. Andrew Strauss top-scored with a classy 98, as the home side reached the total in the 39th over.

Should be a good little final that

England, looking forward to it,

look at the forecast for the first

time. Easterly winds will generate more scattered showers and heavy falls

along the New South Wales and Queensland coasts. Also, expect patchy rain and storms over inland New South Wales and Queensland.

Elsewhere, a large high will maintain cool, dry conditions

over the interior.

It was a weekend of great performances on the field and huge shocks away from it. But the big question is, how did the footy tipping fare? Let's take a look at all the big issues. Beretts joins us along with Greg Cary of radio 4BC. Good morning, guys.

Beretts, big controversy at the weekend in the Collingwood versus Swans game.

Mick Malthouse having a wing or

does he have a point?. He is

furious and rightly so. It couldn't

have been more clear cut. These

things can be lost early in the

match but the umpire for 15 second

called time off so the time

called time off so the time keepers

are supposed to stop the clock. are supposed to stop the clock.

About 15 second went by, the umpire

called time on and the clock runs

away. Two seconds later we get the

final siren. This is it unfolding.

Amon Buchanan for the Swans has the

ball so somewhere that 15 second

disappeared which means the time

keepers simply didn't stop time so

Mick Malthouse has a good point.

Countdown clocks, when you are watching

watching it on the telecast, there

is Mick Malthouse - Crazy John,

crazy Mick! You watch the time

clock at home to countdown to see

how long is left. I think time

clocks counting down at ground is

not a bad thing

Should umpires be wired to the

time keepers?

They have to sort it out. This game

Space is an important thing to Australians

because it's a big country. People want to arrive comfortably and relaxed at the end of their journey. Our new car will be the most spacious and the most powerful car we've ever built. McILROY: It's gonna be much bigger inside - more shoulder room, more leg room. And I think it's going to revolutionise the 6-cylinder market. People will think, "Hey, if I want this type of car, "I better look at the Mitsubishi." In fact, it's going to be better built, better backed than any other car built in Australia.

Later we will talk

Later we will talk to a gentleman

in Melbourne who is facing a lot

of fines for not paying tickets on

the trains. Peter said he suggests

if a train is delayed by more than

5 minute all affected passengers

should be given a free pass.

General it says if she didn't have

to pay if her train was

to pay if her train was late she

would be rich. I have caught a

train on the right time twice and

it has ended uptakeing me three

hours to get to my destination

Wasn't there that lady in Sydney,

the trains were running so late in

Sydney she told everyone not to pay

a fear for a day

And the department caved in

And the department caved in

But in any other industry you

wouldn't pay for half a service, would you?

I know. Look at us, we put in a

Exactly right. The other thing is

Shane Warne. Shane and his wife

Simone have split after the latest

rounds of issues. This is Michelle

rounds of issues. This is Michelle

Masters, Warney's confidant in the

UK. Shane Warne was best man at her

wedding when she married one of his

former team-mates when he played for ham up Shir That is a bit dirty

It is a platonic relationship says

Michelle. They are just very good friends. She

friends. She text messagees him 30

times a day

As you do with your good friends

And has helped him out regularly.

Can men have a female advisor like

this? And text message 30 times a

day and have a platonic relationship?

We things not but everyone has oh

- an opinion

I think it is healthy to have

friends of the opposite sex but

friends of the opposite sex but

text tinge 30 times a day is crossing the line

If you get down on Friday night

and say I'm going down to the pub

with the girls, my friends!

I say in all of this here is to

Simone warn, she has dignity, class,

she seems to have the only woman

who has been associated with him

and I wish her all the best

She is beautiful You

You wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Obviously they have gone to great

lengths to stay together. She looks

so classy and the confidants and

friends of Shane don't look as

classy to put it politely

You don't think he is upgradeing? No

One quickie - yes, men can have

women friends, I have hundreds

women friends, I have hundreds of

female friends and absolutely no

sex at all from Horry!

Is that a comment or a cry for help?

Look at that dancer

He has a bit of moves! Who peter to

check him out than Monique. If your train is late, should you have to pay for a ticket? Next hour,

we will meet the unhappy passenger who's racked up huge fines because he refuses to pay his way. But now, let's pay homage to the news of this Monday morning.

It's over to Simon Reeve. Good morning, everyone.

Schapelle Corby has sacked her Australian legal strategist just 72 hours after appointing him to fight for her freedom.

In a huge about-face, the convicted drug smuggler has also re-hired all but two of her Indonesian legal team. She fired them on Friday following claims they planned to bribe the judges considering her appeal against her 20-year jail term. Reinstated lawyer Hotman Paris Hutapea says the recent hiring and firing will hurt his client's appeal. My prediction is the high court will reconfirm the 20 years.

Australian academic and entrepreneur Walter Tonetto refuses to believe he has been sacked as her strategist and wants to meet Corby today.

Douglas Wood has opened up about his 47-day ordeal held hostage in Iraq. The 63-year-old says fond memories of life in Australia helped pull him through the horror that surrounded him. All the girls I've ever known, my first tooth being pulled,

my first blood nose. Try and recall the members' names and places of the Geelong football team from 1952 to 1953. The building contractor witnessed the executions

of his two Iraqi employees, kidnapped at the same time. He collapsed to the ground. His head was maybe two inches from my foot, then "bang, bang, bang".

A released Swedish man held hostage with Wood has offered a $50,000 bounty for the capture of their kidnappers. The United States Defense Secretary has warned the bloodshed is going to get worse in Iraq. Donald Rumsfeld has also confirmed reports US forces have held at least two meetings with insurgency leaders. I would not make a big deal out of it. Meetings go on frequently with people. It's been another bloody day in Iraq.

Three suicide bombings in the northern city of Mosul

have killed at least 36. Former Labor leader Mark Latham says

his party is a spent force in Australian politics and says Kim Beazley is not a worthy leader.

Mr Latham has kept a low profile since resigning earlier this year after last October's devastating election loss but he releases his memoirs on Wednesday. Labor powerbroker Senator John Faulkner

will launch the book, creating further friction among party ranks. The ACTU's campaign against the Government's Industrial Relations reforms moves to WA's Pilbara today. Thousands are expected to rally against the proposals, following the launch of the protest campaign in Brisbane yesterday. The Government's package includes the creation of a Fair Pay Commission to set minimum wages,

and the abolition of unfair dismissal laws for small businesses with up to 100 workers. But new Coalition Senator Barnaby Joyce says he'll need convincing

a company with 100 employees constitutes a small business. Prince Harry's girlfriend has arrived in London from South Africa. Chelsea Davy is hoping to catch up with her prince for the summer holidays. Harry is attending the prestigious Sandhurst Military College,

and is expected to make the most of his R and R. The 19-year-old met Harry on an African safari

and is hoping the paparazzi will leave them alone. Checking sports news now with Mark Beretta and a big night for Lleyton Hewitt. Lleyton Hewitt can move one step closer to a semifinal showdown with men's world No.1 Roger Federer at Wimbledon tonight. if he beats American Taylor Dent at Wimbledon tonight.

Federer has been unchallenged at the Championships so far and says Hewitt will be his toughest test. The AFL will review the dramatic end to Saturday night's match to Saturday night's match between Sydney and Collingwood. Pies' coach Mick Malthouse says the time-keepers failed to stop the clock

after the umpire had instructed them to in the dying stages.

The League has ruled out the possibility of installing countdown clocks at its venues.

To Rugby League. And Roosters centre Ryan Cross is likely to be charged with a grapple tackle by the NRL today. Parramatta second-rower Glenn Morrison claimed Cross eye-gouged him during Friday night's match. an official complaint to the NRL, But unless Morrison makes an official complaint to the NRL, Cross is likely to escape with the lesser charge. England will play Australia in the final of the one-day tri-series at Lords on 2 July.

This morning, the home side beat Bangladesh by five wickets in their match in Leeds. England reeled in the Tigers' total of 208 in the 39th over.

Should be a good final that one,

mark it on the diary.

2 July, what night is that?

Saturday night -

Saturday night - blockbuster.. Okay,

it will be a cracker.

Melbourne's Herald Sun headlines "WARNE'S SMS MATE." They paper says Warnie turned to English woman Michelle Masters for support during his marriage crisis. The texted each other up to 30 times a day but she says their relationship was platonic. And the Adelaide Advertiser has the same story. Plus, it says public school fees could rise by up to $120 a student next year.

An emotional Douglas Wood has revealed details of his harrowing 47 days as a hostage in Iraq.

I invested about 50,000 so far, and we'll get them one by one. But Douglas Wood is just happy to be alive. That was lovely. Thank you very much. That was lovely. Just two days after firing her Indonesian legal team, Schapelle Corby has re-hired all but two of them. Hotman Paris Hutapea says he received an emotional phone call from the accused drug smuggler asking him to return to the 27-year-old's defence. There is no reason to replace us. For the benefits of the case, we are the ones that understand the case. Melbourne-based lawyer Walter Tonetto who was appointed in place of the sacked Indonesian lawyers had just been stood down. Allegations of lawyers' attempts to bribe judges led to the celebrity legal team being sidelined. Lily Lubis and Vasu Rasiah have not been recalled.

You know how we have been

following a lot of the rain for

regional Australia, parts of

Australia that are fair dinkum need

a good dose. Some areas in the

catchments have missed out. This

will be a great time for New South

Wales coastal catchments which are

virtually bone dry, they will get

the real treatment, falls of up to

150 millimetres - the last time we

had falls that good in our

catchments was years ago. 1998 was

the last substantial rainfall when

300 millimetres fell in a couple of

days. That was significant enough

to take the dams from about 60% to

capacity so if we get half that,

150 millimetres we are looking good

and hopefully we can bump them up

by a good 40% or so.

Easterly winds will generate more scattered showers and heavy falls along the New South Wales and Queensland coasts. Also, expect patchy rain and storms over inland New South Wales and Queensland.

Elsewhere, a large high will maintain cool, dry conditions

over the interior. The two-day outlook - Cloudy periods and wet at times in Brisbane, Sydney and Canberra. Fine and cold in Hobart. Mostly sunny and cool in Melbourne and Adelaide.

Perth should be fine tomorrow with showers developing on Wednesday. Staying sunny and hot in Darwin.

Schapelle Corby's appeal took another interesting turn last night. She's apparently sacked her new strategist and re-hired eccentric Jakarta lawyer Hotman Paris Hutapea. So is all the firing and hiring harming Schapelle's chances of having her sentence reduced? And how is it affecting Australia's relations with Indonesia? Let's ask Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer. Good morning. Minister, are you concerned about the chopping and changing of Schapelle's legal team?

Honestly in the end her legal team

is matter for Schapelle Corby. We

drew her attention to the fact that

there are two QCs who are prepared

to act inform are her probono and

we were happy to recommend them but

who she chews toes hire in the end

is a matter for her and her family

and obviously there have been

differences of opinion between them

all and that has been extremely

public which is unusual. But

bearing all that in mind I hope she

is now settled on a team Minister, Hotman Paris Hutapea

blames Mark Trowell the QC that you

helped appoint for jeopardising

Schapelle's case. Do you agree that

that has happened? And what do you

think of Hotman Paris Hutapea?

I mean, look, they are all

becoming characters in a soap opera

aren't they? I think we are all

watching very closely and with a

great deal of interest, but of

course in my position I'm not

really prefired comment publicly on

what I think about it all. I think

the main thing here is to settle on

a team and make sure they put

forward a credible case in the

appeals court. As far as the

Indonesians are concerned, none of

the Indonesians have mentioned it

to me I must say over the last two

weeks, not since we last spoke - or

I last spoke to the Foreign

Minister, which was straight after

the so-called powder attack on the

Indonesian embassy have I spoken to

him or any senior Indonesian

officials. So I think they just

realise this is a case going to the

appeals court and who hires whom to

represent them in that court, that

is just a matter for all those

people themselves. It is not a

matter for governments

You have helped them out a lot

though and you see this circus

going on at the moment, do you feel

like just shaking them by the

shoulders and saying "Guys, settle

down. This is not doing your case

any good". It just seems to have

got out of control

It is hard to believe that it is

helpful. On the other hand, I

suspect the appeals court judges

will make a decision on the merits

of the case put before them rather

than on these kinds of issues, but

I have always said and I think Philip Ruddock the Attorney-General

said as well that it would be best

if a lot of this was handled

privately rather than tin full

blaze of publicity. There are other

cases of Australians in prison

overseas on various charges and

many of them relating to drugs and

very low-profile by comparison. The

general advice that is given is to

keep the whole process low-profile

if you possibly can, which admit

Edly you can't always

You mentioned other cases overseas.

I would like to ask you about that.

There are three Australians facing

judge charges in Hong Kong. I want

to know what sort of legal help is

being given to them when you have

appointed a QC to help Schapelle

cosh by but I understand these

people are having equivalent of Legal Aid.

No, that is all that we do. When I

say all - that is what we do do.

Look at it this way, in Australia

if somebody can't afford their

defence then they can apply for Legal Aid. If overseas Australians

get into trouble and they can't

afford their defence they can apply to the Attorney-General's scheme

for a kind of equivalent, to the

department for an equivalent scheme.

I'm not sure in the case of the

three who have been arrested in

Hong Kong whether they have done

that but in Schapelle Corby's case

she did make application or her

lawyers made an application for

that financial assistance and we

did support them. In the case of

the two QCs they came forward

initially and said they would be

prepared to help her pro bo flrbgs

o and we have obviously tried to

facilitate that. Pro bono being for

free. In the case of the three in

Hong Kong I'm not sure what their

financial circumstances are but

they are able to make application

in the same way as any Australians

in the same circumstances can

So you are not giving favoured

treatment to Schapelle as some

people are insinuateing?

I'm not in favour of giving

favourite treatment to anyone but

I'm in favour of giving the reason

Mr Support Mr Support as

Mr Support as we can they decisions

in Bali and Hong Kong - one of

these Australians is only 15 - in

all of these cases we are able to

help them in the way I have

described in relation on to

financial assistance if that is needed

If they required a QC and they did

apply you would facilitate that?

You would have the same level of

support there for them as you have

shown Schapelle Corby?

If a QC was prepared to come

forward for free as has happened in

Schapelle Corby's case - why if two

QCs have offered to do the work for

free that is a matter for them. But

if QCs want to come forward and

help the three in Hong Kong in in

those circumstances we would pass

the information on and do what we

could to facilitate it. If other

Australians other than the

Government want to help that is for them

Minister thank you for joining us,

appreciate your time A pleasure. Well, there's claim and counterclaim at the moment over looming federal workplace reforms. The Government says more jobs will be created workers will lose benefits. while the unions say workers will lose benefits.

So let's cut through the spin with our chief political correspondent, Mark Reilly. Good morning. So are these reforms going to leave workers worse off?

It depend who you believe. There

is a vast distance between the

Government and the unions on this.

The unions say that it will leave

workers with much fewer standard

conditions than they enjoy at the

moment. The Government says well

look at our record over the last

nine years wages have grown very

strongly and that they will

continue to grow under the new

system. I think we will know in

about a year or two years David the

way that employers respond to the new powers

Now the two big changes, just

explain them for us - one is unfair

dismissal and the other one is

going on contract is it not?

Yes, unfair dismissal essentially

the unfair dismissal laws at the

moment relate to workers in

companies of about 10 and over.

Under these changes they will only

- people who work for companies

with employees of 100 and more will

have an exemption from unfair

dismissal. In other words, about

90% of the work force will lose

unfair dismissal protections, that

is if your boss sacks you and you

think that you have been treat

unfairly you will not have recourse

in that avenue. There are still

federal laws that will support you.

There are unlawful termination

provisions under if workplace

relations act but they are not as

specific and the coverage is not as

broad as the unfair dispissal laws.

The second is it is all predicated

on moving people to individual

contracts. You can't be coerced

under the workplace relations act

to do that but that is absolutely

what these change rest fashioned to do

The big thing with those workplace

agreements is that under the

current system the Industrial

Relations Commission can rule

whether you will be worse off than

the award. Under the new system no

Industrial Relations Commission to

protect you and really the boss

just has to give you sick leave,

annual leave, whatever. It does not

matter whether it is worse off than the existing award, does it?

That is right. Essentially it

melts the system down into five

minimum standards. The minimum

hourly rate of $12.75. The 8 days

sick leave, four weeks annual leave,

unpaid parental leave and the 38

hour week. They are the five

minimums that have to exist in

everybody's individual contract or

in awards. At the moment the

Industrial Relations Commission has

an overarching power to look at

collective agreements and

individual agreements. Under the

new system the office of the

employment advocate will do that.

The big change is that what we call

if no disadvantage test applied by

the IRC and that is you cannot sign

away your rights, you cannot sign

up to an agreement that leaves you

worse off than the base award. That

will go. So it will be possible for

employees to sign up to an

individual contract or to a

collective bargaining agreement

that leaves them worse off

Then they have no option - it is

basically the boss can say "It's my

way or the highway"?

The boss k but again there are

those legal protections under the

workplace relations act. This is

interesting. It is a difference

really between the unfair dismissal

protections which most people will

lose and those unlawful termination

provisions within the act, they are

not as broad and so there are some

protection theirs but employers if

they are smart and crafty and cany

can get around those

Unions have launched quite an

effective campaign on TVads and

newspapers against this - do you

think it will lead to strike?

It may. The unions have been

making strategies for sometime.

There may be strikes but I don't

think at this stage we will see a

big general strike. The reason for

that essentially advertise politics

of it. The Government wouldn't mind

see tinge unions do that, they can

deem nice the unions, and say "Look

at those ratbags". We would like to

see the unions continue like this

week, a week of protest, coordinated actions indifferent

centres to bring attention to

themselves and to educate people.

Not a lot of workers really understand and I think

understandably understand the

detail of this because they are

quite detailed changes. What the

union is saying is once people get

an idea of what is ahead, then they

will become concerned and they will

join those protests. The interesting thing is that John

Howard was not able to get his

party behind these at the weekend.

You had the western Australian

state leader putting up resolutions

at the Liberal Party conference and

the states have really had their

say overruling the national

parliamentary party and saying "We

don't want these, we are state

right is its we want to maintain

our state-based systems, we don't

like federalism but the federal

party will go ahead anyway

Mark thank you, live from Canberra. We were hoping to speak with Josh Brooker now. He's the bloke facing fines for not paying for a ticket on public transport. He won't pay because he says the service is not good enough. And at the moment, he's stuck on a train. So we'll catch up with him when he arrives in Melbourne. Tom Cruise's latest movie has been overshadowed by his new relationship. His fiancee Katie Holmes has been by his side at every War of the Worlds premiere. And New York was no different. The couple joined co-stars Miranda Otto and Tim Robbins on the red carpet. Our Katherine Tulich was there to share the love. (Up-beat music)

I'm here at the New York premier of

War of the Worlds and as you can

see the excitement is building, the

fans are already behind with

T-shirts on. This from is Stephen

Spielberg's big blockbuster and a

return to what people think he does

best, science fiction, but believe

me the aliens will not be phoneing

home in this one, they are real

nasty and they are here to attack

us. This is not a war, it is an ex-termination

It is great to see you back with

science fiction, this does have a

darker tone than your earlier films.

Does it show a difference in your

approach as well?

I think this movie is more of a

reflection of not just who I am

today but what the times are like

today and I just think the times

are conducive for a movie like this

to draw response from the audience

and I think it is basically because

War of the Worlds is supposed to be

really scary and we also happen to

live in really scary times

Tom Cruise arrived at the Premier

with his lady love Katie Holmes

beside him. The two spent hours

with fans, kissing and Cudmore link and signing autographs.

I'm from Australia, how are you?

And UK

How are you? How is it going?

We haven't seen you for a while. Do you still feel close to Australia?

Are you can Iing, my children are

Australians, my children are Australians

Will you bring Katie down?

Yes. Does it make a difference with

Katie behind you?

It is very exciting

You spend so much type with the fans

Where are you from? Sydney

You spent enough time there

You spent enough time there

Hi Sydney, hi Australia, can't wait

But is the Tom and Katie show

getting more attention than the

film? Spielberg says it is

important to keep it all in

perspective. There were rumours

that you were not happy with the focus on the relationship

That is not true. What I wasn't

happy about was what I just said -

the media sometimes has to feed

itself and they have to make a lot

of money the way movies have to

make money to. The media sets

people up and they set them up so

they can get weeks and weeks of a

good series called the Tom and

Katie series, the Ben and Jen fer

series, the brand Angelina series

and this is what the media does.

This is how they make money and

people should not be fooled. They

should be happy for them. It is

nice. It is spring!

Aussie actor Miranda Otto got a big

surprise when she was asked to be in the movie

I thought my God, I was pregnant,

there is no way it will work out.

Then I spoke to him tonne phone and

he was one of the few - the first

people I told I was pregnant, about

the fourth person I think. I hadn't

even told my dad at that stage - he was not quite first

And he said no, I think that would

work fine. We could change it and

that would be really interesting.

He just on the spot said "No, that

would be fine" and you have to

pinch yourself really, I couldn't

believe it

Take care of our kids

You have nothing to worry about!

I don't know if they will get into

the Premier but I got a hug from

Tom, not a kiss but a hug was pretty good! Later this hour,

Lucky Catherine. Monique Wright takes us to the Olympic bid city, Madrid.

See why it has the fun and could have the Games at 7.50. But after the break, all the news, sport and weather you need on Sunrise.

Think carefully, because the choice you make now can make a big difference to your retirement. Super Choice. Think about your future.

Welcome to a new day. This is Sunrise. If your train is late, should you have to pay for a ticket? Shortly, we'll meet the unhappy passenger who has racked up huge fines because he refuses to pay his way. But now, the 7.30 news update But now, the 7.30 news update has arrived with Simon Reeve on board. Good morning, everyone. Schapelle Corby has sacked her Australian legal strategist just 72 hours after appointing him just 72 hours after appointing him to fight for her freedom. In a huge about-face, the convicted drug smuggler has also re-hired all but two of her Indonesian legal team. She fired them on Friday following claims they planned to bribe the judges considering her appeal against her 20-year jail term. Reinstated lawyer Hotman Paris Hutapea says the recent hiring and firing will hurt the cause. My prediction is the high court will reconfirm the 20 years. Australian academic and entrepreneur Walter Tonetto refuses to believe he has been sacked as her strategist and wants to meet Corby today.

Two Perth QCs offered for free by the Australian government were sidelined by Corby. Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has told Sunrise he'd prefer to stay out of the hiring and firing of the current team. They're all becoming characters in a soap opera, aren't they? We're all watching very closely with a great deal of interest, but, of course, in my position I'm not prepared to comment publicly on what I think about it all. I think the main thing here is to settle on a te
