Five Australians among those comes crashing to the shore A three metre wall of water in a terrifying moment. catching thousands offguard and pulled me under And then the water grabbed me and I was thinking, "This is the end, I'm going down. I'm going to drown." Surging as far as 500 metres inland the freak wave destroyed everything in its way. The hardest hit - beachside restaurants, and hotels. As the body bags piled up, those who survived returned to identify relatives who didn't make it out. A baby giving rescuers precious hope. At least five Australians were among those who managed to scramble to higher ground. We have an AusAID officer going into parts of Java that have been affected by the tsunami with an Australian Defence Force officer as well to assess the situation. The quake which caused the wave peaked at 7.7 on the richter scale followed by 18 aftershocks. The disaster putting to test the region's new tsunami warning system. While nearby nations were placed on high alert

the people of Java appear to have been forgotten. Aid agencies are now scrambling to help the thousands whose homes have been washed away. This is an area that has suffered enormously in terms of earthquakes. We've had the tsunami, then we had back in June we've had the earthquake, and now the earthquake and a further tsunami. With so much lost so quickly, shocked survivors can do little but ponder an uncertain future. Rakhal Ebeli, Ten News. And an assurance tonight that none of the Bali bombers escaped from their jail cell in Java during the chaotic aftermath of the tsunami.

Foreign Minister Alexander Downer says two prisoners are missing but three bombers remain locked up. Australia's aging fleet of F-111s has been grounded for the time being. The Air Force is now examining the aircraft that led to a full-scale emergency with a spectacular ending. A nervous, worrying four hours, dumping fuel, ends with touchdown. Success and cheers all round. WOMAN: Oh, there's a - no. A 22-year-old rookie pilot and his 26-year-old navigator are now being hailed heroes. Bringing their 'pig' the F-111's nickname safely to ground. I particularly express my admiration and my gratitude for the professonalism of all of those concerned.

Kick for cash, thanks to AFL Premiership 2006 exclusive to Playstation 2 and Sports Tonight. Michael Gardiner's career at the West Coast Eagles appears over, after another off-field indiscretion. The troubled ruckman will face drink-driving charges after crashing his V8 Commodore through a roundabout, before smashing into two parked cars last night. Are you alright? Yeah, I'm fine. We heard you had a fractured eye socket or something? No, I'm fine. No-one was hurt so that's the main thing. The Eagles have fined him $5,000 and suspended him indefinitely. It's a decision not taken lightly and it's something that there was a lot of thought given to obviously.

Gardiner had only returned to the West Coast team three weeks ago, after being banished last February for disciplinary reasons. A blow of a different kind tonight

for St Kilda ruckman Justin Koschitzke. He just can't take a trick. His comeback from injury has again been put on hold, suspended for one week by the VFL Tribunal after pleading guilty to making contact with an umpire. Justin Koschitzke was again in the spotlight, the VFL tribunal ruling he had a duty of care not to crash into umpire Josh Krull. The St Kilda ruckman had been hoping to continue his comeback

this weekend, but will cop his suspension on the chin. Well, he's very disappointed about having to miss another game this weekend. You know, he's had a real interrupted season, as we know, but he got a very fair hearing in there. Obviously, it was a pretty forceful blow

to the back of the umpire's head. The players definitely have a duty of care to know where the umpire is at all times. At the AFL tribunal, Richmond defender Joel Bowden failed to have his striking charge downgraded

and will also miss one match. To other news now, and Nick Davis has apologised to the Sydney Swans for his recent public outbursts, but it may not be enough to get him back in the side. I think if he had his time over again, that he probably wouldn't have said the things that he said, and he's got a clear understanding. Obviously, he was very apologetic, you know, for the things he'd done. We see it as serious and it goes against who we are as a team, so there is some of that loss of trust, I suppose, from the playing group and it's just up to Nick now, how he's going to get that trust back from the playing group. Geelong has lodged an official complaint with the league, complaining umpire Darren Goldspink swore at one of its players during Sunday's match with Port Adelaide. Goldspink was gagged from telling his side of the story.

I know what you're going to ask me but if you want a comment you'll have to speak to the AFL. And the AFL will not be taking any action. I don't believe that he did swear. I've spoken to Darren Goldspink and he's told me that he didn't. Essendon coach Kevin Sheedy has had shoulder reconstruction tonight. He's only a 50/50 chance to be at the helm against Carlton on Saturday. And the AFL will go back to the '80s this weekend hoping the Heritage Round will strike a chord with fans. # In the midnight hour # Yeah. just a lot of fun. A lot of fun. I think it's a great initiative by the AFL. You know, a Heritage Round is a lot of fun

and the '80s theme, I think, like you said before it's going to bring a lot od smiles to a lot of faces. David Adamson for Sports Tonight. Todd Payten fears he's cost his team a finals berth all because of the controversial stripping rule. He says it's time the rule changed, and reckons there's no point referees owning up to their mistakes

when the damage has already been done. At the Wests Tigers, they're still training like a team with top eight aspirations. And they're just as determined that the referee got it wrong when he awarded Sunday's match-deciding penalty for stripping the ball. There is too much margin for different interpretations, so if we wiped it out altogether,

then there wouldn't be a problem with it. Of more immediate concern, Sunday's crucial meeting with Parramatta. Hooker Robbie Farah in doubt with a back injury. I'll be doing everything I can to get onto the field. He is a very important part of their team, but they've got plenty of other good players

and if we start thinking, he's not gonna be there, that means we're a bigger chance of winning. I think they might sneak up on us. The axe has fallen at the struggling North Queensland club. Five players dropped for Saturday night's match against Brisbane including Ty Williams. Ty wasn't at his best last weekend and I felt sorry for him. He just hasn't quite got his confidence back and a couple of things that were pretty vital for us just didn't quite come up to scratch. At Cronulla, coach Stuart Raper insisted halves Brett Kimmorley and Adam Dykes will stay there for the season, despite the side's poor record when they play together. The six and the seven don't miss tackles, the six and the seven don't drop all the balls. A decision expected tomorrow on where Nate Myles will play next year. The Gold Coast and Wests Tigers out of the running, the Roosters firming as favourites. And the Brisbane Broncos have denied they're chasing unwanted Roosters half-back Brett Finch. Leanne West for Sports Tonight. The biggest week in the career of Aussie cyclist Cadel Evans is about to start as the Tour de France heads to the mountains. Evans lies in fifth place overall. With the tour now moving into the French Alps, which should see the former mountain bike champion take big chunks off the deficit. He currently trails Spaniard Oscar Pereiro. I know who I have to watch and you know, I'm just following the favourites and so on so that's for me really what's important. Fellow Australian Michael Rogers is eighth in the general classification. Robbie McEwen still wears the green sprinter's jersey. Only half the world's top 10 surfers remain in contention after round two of the Billabong Pro in South Africa. Rookies ran riot, but world champ Kelly Slater showed them all how it's done. Even the locals were keen to drop in and watch the 7-times world champion in action and he didn't disappoint. Slater missed the opening round last week, so was keen to catch up. He backed up his initial 8-point ride with a near perfect 9.5. It's nicer to have two tries to get to the third round than one. I was out there thinking, "Gosh, if I don't get any waves this year, "I'll be really frustrated at myself for not being here for round one."

2004 winner Andy Irons had to fight for a wave with the wildlife. The former world champ suffering his worst performance in two years as the tour rookies took control. Aussie whiz-kid Taj Burrow one of the few established surfers to survive the second round. The world number four overcoming an ear infection to progress.

He won't have Irons to contend with in the next round.

Everyone gets to throw away a few events and that's Andy's first throwaway. It's not a huge deal, but still it's kind of fun for us to catch up. After a string of last-placed finishes tour rookie Roy Powers scored just his second career heat win at Iron's expense. Peter O'Dempsey for Sports Tonight. FFA Chairman Frank Lowy has revealed an ambitious plan for Australia to host the World Cup in 2018. Speaking to the ABC,

Lowy said the first major step in building on the Socceroos success in Germany was to perform well in the Asian confederation. Australia is a strong sporting country

and ought to be given a chance to move further internationally than where we were before. And Asia wanted us, FIFA accepted us and Oceania was ready to let us go, so here we are. That will make the biggest difference. Lowy wants Australia to be a regular top 10 nation in the football world. The Socceroo Perth Glory is pinning it's A-league hopes on, trained with his team-mates for the first time today. Stan Lazaridis playing down speculation he will be handed the captaincy this season ahead of Jamie Harnwell. At the end of the day, whoever the coach is going to be - whether it's Alan or whoever is appointed - if they decide that Jamie will be the captain, then he should be captain. If they decide I'll be captain, I'll look at it and we'll take it from there. The Glory are still without a coach this season but an announcement is expected within weeks. Good news for the Boomers

with NBA star Andrew Bogut fit to face the Kiwis tomorrow night, despite illness and injury . Bogut injured his knee in a heavy fall during last night's one-point win over the Tall Blacks, but his main concern was a pre-match stomach virus. I had a stomach virus. I didn't eat all day yesterday but sort of got through it. I couldn't eat, couldn't hold food. I had to sleep it off. The trans-Tasman series wraps up in Melbourne tomorrow night,

the Boomers last hit out ahead of next's month's world championships in Japan.

They sure look graceful winding their way around the course Most, content to play follow the leader, while some tried to tough it out on their own.

The weather around the nation, cloud over eastern parts of Victoria and NSW in strong southerly winds is bringing showers. Low cloud is lingering over southern Queensland, the Northern Territory and SA in fairly moist southerlies, generating cool but generally dry weather.

Clear skies across WA in dry and mild north-easterlies. Southerly winds will maintain isolated showers along the eastern seaboard, mainly on the central NSW coast. A high will generate a cold morning and dry day over the interior. Mild north-easterly winds will affect WA after a cold morning. Mostly sunny in Cairns and Brisbane, showers in Sydney, and mostly sunny in Canberra. A clearing shower in Melbourne, mostly sunny in Hobart, and mostly cloudy in Adelaide. Sunny in Perth and Darwin and drizzle clearing in Alice Springs. And the Brits will be baking today, with a record maximum temperature being forecast for the UK. It's tipped to top 38.5 degrees.
