The match review panel will look at two incidents, one involving Josh Gibson the other midfielder Daniel Harris following their win over the Blues on Friday night. To the NRL, and South Sydney coach Shaun McRae has described his team as soft following their record loss to the New Zealand Warriors. The Warriors embarrassed the once mighty Rabbitohs, running in 12 unanswered tries in the 66-nil win. It was Souths biggest loss in their 98 years. Roosters coach Ricky Stuart was also furious with his players, claiming his team is carrying too many passengers

following their loss to Canberra. Kath's back with finance news and James Hardie's compensation plan back on the agenda? The Prime Minister has ruled out approving a tax payer funded compensation plan for the victims of James Hardie's asbestos products. John Howard says the building products company has a responsibility to foot the bill, not the Government. Doubts over whether the $4.5 billion compensation plan would suceed emerged after the Tax Office said it had not yet made a ruling in relation to whether the payments could be tax deductible.

The compensation plan is conditional on the ATO allowing tax deductions. National weather for Monday - And now for a look at some of today's headlines. Two people charged over the violent beating of a Queensland police officer. More when Ten's Early News comes back.

This program is captioned live. Welcome back to Ten's Early News. Making headlines, the PM criticises union officials, plotting what's tipped to be the largest protest yet

over the new workplace laws. John Howard takes a more subdued tone in Indonesia, there to mend a rift over asylum seekers. Australian fans arrive in Kaiserslautern ahead of the Socceroos' clash with Italy and get their hands on highly-sought after tickets. And in sport, jockey Shane Dye fighting for his life in hospital after a race fall in Hong Kong.

Now Kath's back with another look at finance, and how did the markets finish the week? The all ords closed lower and Friday and will probably spend some time in negative territory today.

The Prime Minister says this week's national protests against workplace laws are misguided. But that won't stop thousands of employees from taking to the streets on Wednesday, in what unions are billing as the largest protest yet against the new IR laws. Postal worker Kevin Andrews is probably tired of the jokes. He and his ministerial namesake couldn't be further apart on life in the workplace. But his plans to attend this week's rally could cost him. Australia Post says it will take action against anyone who takes part while on duty. The ACTU remains confident of a massive turnout. Every time we do have a disciplined, peaceful and respectful mobilisation of people the support for our campaign is elevated.

Employers and the Prime Minister see it differently.

I think their attitude on the changes is not in the interests of their members.

I think the members of the ACTU have done very well, individually, But Mr Howard says he knows nothing of reports his Government has done a deal with the top end of town to hold off on implementing AWAs, diffusing a potentially explosive election issue.

Big business hasn't really grabbed a hold of this agenda yet.

They will in due course, I've no doubt. PM John Howard has arrived on the Indonesian island of Batam for crucial talks with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Mr Howard is eager to smooth over relations strained after 42 West Papuans were granted asylum in Australia in March. The early release of the spiritual leader of the Bali bombings, Abu Bakar Bashir, is another point of contention. Labor wants Mr Howard to demand 24 hour surveillance of Bashir, who last night visited earthquake survivors and handed out aid. John Howard has called on East Timor's rival political leaders to sort out their differences after the resignation of the country's Foreign Minister. The face of East Timor's struggle for independence, Jose Ramos Horta, quit after the Prime Minsiter Mari Alkatiri refused to resign. The country's President Xanana Gusmao has also threatened to quit.

East Timor has been marred by violence

after Alkatiri sacked half of the country's army. Queensland police union has angrily attacked the use of lone highway patrols in the State after a brutal attack on a traffic cop. Colleagues claim the bashing of respected traffic cop and subsequent shooting of two people on the Gold Coast was avoidable. They say Gabe Jose should never have been alone when a routine patrol turned violent. He's definitely injured but he's not shot. The constable was apparently beaten around the head after stopping a car. A single bullet from his gun, fired during the scuffle,

hit a man in the stomach and then tore through a womens leg. They've been charged with grievous bodily harm The pair will face a bedside court today. Constable Jose is still recovering in hospital and detectives are examining a video of the incident. Mark Suleau Ten News. Queensland forensic scientists will today positively identify a body recovered from a forest on the Sunshine Coast.

They believe it to be the remains of a missing 41-year-old father of four Rodney Falls. His wife has appeared in court, charged with murder. A Brisbane man led police to the body at the bottom of a steep embankment late yesterday. He's been charged with interfering with remains. Two other men also face charges. Australia's peak internet crime-fighting agency is under fire for losing the banking details of thousands of Australians.

The officer was headed overseas to brief foreign police on Russian mafia internet scams.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban partied into the early hours of this morning after becoming husband and wife at a lavish ceremony in Sydney last night. Hundreds of people lined the streets to greet Nicole as she made her way to the hillside chapel in the suburb of Manly. The traditional Catholic service took around 45 minutes, guests then enjoyed entertainment provided by Hugh Jackman and Neil Finn. Keith and Nicole will leave for a Pacific island honeymoon later this week.

The Socceroos have completed their final preparations for tomorrow morning's round two clash against Italy, but last game hero Harry Kewell's role in the match could be in doubt. After securing Australia's berth in the knock-out phase with his last gasp goal Harry Kewell is in grave danger of missing the match against Italy.

The Socceroo star aggrevating his long-term groin injury and absent for the team's final training session in Oehringen. We will see how the situation is tomorrow. With all the pressure and expectations

Fenn Kemp, Ten News. PM John Howard has arrived on the Indonesian island of Batam for crucial talks with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Mr Howard is eager to smooth over relations strained after 42 West Papuans were granted asylum in Australia in March. The early release of the spiritual leader of the Bali bombings, Abu Bakar Bashir, is another point of contention. Labor wants Mr Howard to demand 24 hour surveillance of Bashir, who last night visited earthquake survivors and handed out aid. Australia's peak internet crime-fighting agency is under fire for losing the banking details of thousands of Australians. The 'Australian' newspaper reports a police officer with the Australian High Tech Crime Centre lost a computer dossier with the information of customers from 18 banks.

The officer was on a trip from Sydney to London. The file also contained details of an international police investigation. The officer was headed overseas to brief foreign police on Russian mafia internet scams. Buckingham Palace has been transformed into a fantasy land as 2,000 excited children descended on the royal residence

for continuing birthday celebrations for the Queen. Characters from fairytales and storybooks joined the garden party to mark the Queen's 80th birthday. The theme of the event

was to encourage the promotion of British children's literature.

A trademark piece of David Beckham brilliance has scrapped England through to the quarterfinals. If there is one thing that defines David Beckham on the football field this is it. That right down the slot David Beckham. The 25-yard free kick was enough for England in an otherwise disjointed display. In fact the only thing magic in the first half was the medical attention for Owen Hargreaves. Ashley Cole's flying foot stopped an early Ecuador goal. John Terry's attracted a yellow card. The smiles from the England bench failed to disguise disappointments at the break. The second half wasn't that much better.

Michael Rooney's barging efforts went unrewarded and Ecuador's attacks were few and far between. International jockey Shane Dye is in a critical condition following a terrible race fall in Hong Kong.
