While Brisbane also got into the spirit of the night. Green and gold coffees one cure for hungover fans this morning. Christopher Still, Ten News. And we'll bring you the full match report later in sport. A number of Brisbane burns patients are likely to be flown interstate for treatment, following the outbreak of an antibiotic-resistant bug. The bacteria was found on the skin of 19 patients - three wards at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital yesterday quarantined.

None of the patients has yet developed an infection, but doctors say they can't promise the situation won't get worse. The Concorde burns unit in Sydney is on stand-by to receive those who need urgent care. Three people are in hospital with burns after an explosion in Sydney's north-west. An adult and two teenagers were working on a boat in a shed at Sackville in the Hawksbury area north of Sydney when it exploded in a ball of fire. Emergency crews stabilised all three before taking them to hospital. 13- and 15-year-old boys were taken by air. The adult by road. They're in a stable condition. One of the teenagers is said to have burns to 30% of his body. Beaconsfield gold miners could know the fate of their jobs in a week but it's bound to be negative. Sydney's 'Daily Telegraph' reports workers have been told to brace themselves for significant redundancies. Allstate Explorations administrator Michael Ryan says it would be at least four months before any part of the mine could be re-opened. The Sydney Cricket Ground is to be given a $60 million facelift. Headlining the changes - a new grandstand to seat 3,000 people. The 'Sydney Morning Herald' says the SCG Trust will also redevelop the famous ground's gold members car park into homes, offices and shops. Developments will begin after the Ashes series next February. Coming up after the break - life in prison for two men responsible for America's biggest ever corporate collapse.

And the chilling mass suicide pledge caught on camera.

Closure for millions of American mums and dads who lost everything in the nation's biggest corporate collapse. Former Enron executives Kenneth Lay and Jeffery Skilling face life in jail after being convicted of fraud, conspiracy and insider trading. It took the jury just five days to find the former chairman and chief executive of Enron guilty of cooking the company's books. Obviously I'm disappointed but that's the way the system works. The two men worked behind scenes devising a complex system of accounting that deceived the public about the company's true financial position. Lawyers were shocked at just how quickly the jury came to its decision. Obviously I'm disappointed but that's the way the system works. The collapse left thousand of Enron employees without superannuation and worker entitlements. Many more shareholders lost their life savings after they invested in the company's stock. The two men will be sentenced on September 11 this year and face between 20 and 30 years behind bars. Lawyers say they will appeal. Another chilling warning to America and the West from Iran. Thousands of followers of a hard-line Islamic group have volunteered as suicide bombers to attack targets ranging from American interests to Israel and even author Salman Rushdie. More than 5,000 people, many young women, vowed to carry out suicide missions whenever called on. Although the group insists it's independent, its banners often appear at state-sponsored events. Seven Islamic extremists are standing trial in the UK, accused of plotting to blow up a famous London nightclub.

Secret service officers providing damning evidence after bugging conversations.

This is the nightclub, the Ministry of Sound in London, which two of the defendants allegedly discussed as a target for a bomb. The jury heard the club often hosts 1,900 people on a Saturday night. We're able to broadcast for the first time photographs of the six of the seven men on trial at the Old Bailey. They all deny conspiracy to cause explosions. Back in February 2004 the men had been watched by MI5 officers. And it was in this Uxbridge block of flats that two of the men were bugged and as the prosecution claimed they discussed suitable targets for a terror. They even debated whether they were being monitored. Last week the jury were shown photographs of 600 kilograms of fertiliser found in a storage depot.

The prosecution say it could have been used as an explosive for one or more bombs. Security has been stepped up at Turkey's biggest airport following yesterday's massive fire. A hard-line Kurdish militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack that destroyed the airport's cargo section. Officials are questioning the claims Turkey's atomic energy experts have also converged on the scene to determine whether any radioactive material stored at the airport leaked during the emergency. Ahead in Ten's morning news - more controversy for the AFL tribunal, that's when Ten's morning news returns. Also that spectacular goal which sent Australian soccer fans into a frenzy.

To finance news, and the Australian share market has shaken off the week's blues. The Socceroos head to Melbourne Airport in a little over an hour full of confidence after last night's one-nil win

against European champions Greece. In front of more than 95,000 people, the Aussies had the perfect warm up

for next month's World Cup in Germany. The hero Josip Skoko. It was the perfect farewell for Guus Hiddink's men. Sent off in style in front of 95,000 at the MCG. The next stop is the game's greatest stage. Many, many, many good things. If you see them playing, if you see the team playing against Uruguay, it's consistent. It was this blistering left foot strike from outside the box that sealed the match. Yosip Skoko, who grew up in Geelong, became an instant home-town hero in the 15th minute. The goal simply stunning. Top of the world. In front of our home fans. Couldn't ask for any more. The Aussies dominated play finding plenty of spaces in the Greek defence. Greece off its game and unable to find the back of the net. Their fans' frustrations bubbling over. The Soceroos making light work of the Euproean champions

and now comes the world. They board a flight for Holland this afternoon with just 17 days remaining before their World Cup opener against Japan. Kelli Underwood, Ten News. A different kind of football returns to the MCG tonight with up to 70,000 expected for the AFL's Round 9 opener between Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs. But after a turbulent week, the game's much maligned tribunal process continues to dominate much of the the spotlight. For the second time this week the Hawks and Bombers rolled the dice. And for the second time this week they left AFL headquarters in a huff. We've always felt that the sanction imposed against Richard Vanderberg greatly outweighed the severity especially considering the determinations of similar incidents earlier this year. We believe it is manifestly unjust. Hawthorn was seething

with the severity of Richie Vandenberg's 4-match ban. But the skipper has copped the month on the chin. Look obviously, I'm very disappointed with the decision. However, um, I must accept the decision of the panel and move on. The Bombers just as angry with their ordeal. Forward Andrew Lovett's appeal against a 3-match ban for striking also falling on deaf ears. Just disappointed, obviously but, you know. A number of modifications have been made to the tribunal process since the beginning of the 2005 season and we will be formally suggesting to the AFL that there need to be a few more. Round 9 begins tonight with the season's two top-scoring teams doing battle under the MCG lights. Good teams, play well under pressure and that's what we're trying to be - a top four team. Obviously we're not there at this stage but a big stage this week should test us out and see where we're at. We're satisified with where we are eight weeks in but there's obviously challenges ahead and this week and tomorrow night is going to be massive for us. Tim Hodges, Ten News. NZ rugby league captain Nigel Vagana believes country man Tevita Latu was 'hard done by' after being sacked by the Sharks for allegedly assaulting a teenage girl. Vagana's comments raising further concerns for the NRL who are trying to improve the game's image. Tevita Latu allegedly lashed out at a 19-year-old girl on Monday morning seemingly ending his rugby league career. Despite being de-registered from the NRL, Latu may have a possible avenue to play in the New Zealand domestic competition. There's a process he needs to go through first over there with the Australian judicial system. We'll let that run its course. The point at which he applies to be registered as a New Zealand player, we would consider it. NRL CEO David Gallop was clear he wanted Latu's de-registration respected universally

former Sharks team-mate Vagana claiming the club may have succumbed to pressure from the NRL, media and public. Latu also receiving support from his former club the New Zealand Warriors who say the NRL has left the 24-year-old high and dry. If they're going to take that stance, they've gotta show they are willing to help him out as well as - not just for Tevita's sake but for someone else's. You can't just sweep it under the carpet and just get rid of him. The Latu case yet another blow to the NRL who spent $1 million on a report into anti-social player behaviour

following the Bulldogs scandal in 2004. Latu will appear in court next month. Scott Mackinnon, Ten News. Australian swimming sensation Libby Lenton

has revealed a severe asthma attack caused her to collapse during a race at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games. The 21-year-old has told Sydney's 'Daily Telegraph' she was forced to do survival breathing as she struggled to come second in the final of the 100m butterfly, later being given oxygen. Lenton says she'll have to undergo further tests in the lead-up to the Beijing Olympics. Next in Ten News weather around the nation.

But because Iraj Malayeri raises snakes to supplement his income, his 6-year-old daughter plays with them instead. Despite her nonchalant attitude to the writhing reptiles, Shaqayegh says she and her brother are quite comfortable with them wriggling all around the house. Even more importantly, she has never been bitten although they're often crawling all over her and her brother while they play in the yard. And that brings you up to date with all the news.
