In finance news, the Australian share market has opened slightly higher.

Football Australia is denying reports they've signed a new coach for the Socceroos. Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier was widely touted to have accepted the manager's role made vacant by the Guus Hiddink. The contract to see the Socceroos through to the 2010 World Cup

is thought to be worth $20 million over four years. Houllier, also a former French national coach, has been on Football Australia's hit-list for some months, but the federation says talks are continuing with a number of candidates, including Houllier. David Beckham has quit as England captain

after almost six years in the job. Holding back tears the 31-year-old told a packed news conference the time is right to pass on the captain's armband, entering a new era under new coach Steve McClaren.

I have lived the dream. I am extremely proud to have worn the armband

and been captain of England and for that I will always be grateful. Thank you very much. Beckham will continue playing for England. but will spend the next six weeks

recovering from a torn Achilles tendon. Another bruising weekend of injuries in the AFL with the Eagles and Bulldogs the latest to add to the casualty list after their match last night. And it was the Bulldogs who caused a major upset

to complete Round 13 - the Eagles mid-season form slump continuing. They returned home triumphant after a win Rodney Eade labelled the best he's ever been a part of. It was a great win, I mean - I except for a final win I think it was the greatest club win I've been involved with. The win places the Dogs equal with Collingwood and Melbourne on nine wins. But it's a major concern for the Eagles after back-to-back losses. They need to look at themselves and as an individual as part of a team and as a team

and give me anwers as well as to why that was the case. The news gets no better, with one-time Brownlow favourite Dean Cox breaking his collarbone. The Dogs have also lost youngster Shaun Higgins with a broken elbow.

He'll need surgery, he's in surgery now and he'll be there for 48 hours I don't know the length of that, but probably doubtful that he'd be back this year. Adelaide reaffirmed its place on top of the AFL ladder after round 13. The Crows smashing Geelong by a whopping 92 points.

They were the best team we've played in a long while. We were just sitting there in the box in awe of how good they were. And Richmond upset the Magpies but they lost onballer Chris Newman for the rest of the year with a badly broken leg. COMMENTATOR: Ohhhhh! Tim Hodges, Ten News. Brisbane's baby Broncos have ended Cronulla's winning run with an upset win in the National Rugby League. And a rare send-off in the Bulldogs win over the Wests Tigers. It's been 450 days since an NRL player was last sent off COMMENTATOR: Utai's just coat-hangered him. Bulldog Matt Utai facing his third suspension of the year for his tackle on Wests Tigers hooker Stuart Flanagan. It's extremely disappointing for him and the club but we'll wait and see whether they actually suspend him or not. The Utai dismissal making no difference to the result. The Bulldogs steamrolling the premiers, scoring five tries to one, We're not gonna throw up our hands and say that's it for us, not by a long shot. Cronulla captain Brett Kimmorley brushed aside this hit from Brisbane's Casey Maguire, claiming he was kicked in the head later in the match. He got me a bit high and a bit late and I was happy for the penalty.

I thought the stomping was a bit worse later in the game that got missed.

The Sharks suffering just their second loss in 10 weeks to a Brisbane side missing almost a full team of top-line players due to State of Origin commitments and injury. It's handy when you've got 11 players out and you can still put a competitive side out there like they did. Brisbane's stand-in skipper Shane Webcke marking his 250th game for the club in style, scoring one of his side's five tries. My days are numbered in terms of being able to do it, so when a day like this happens I appreciate it just that little bit more. REPORTER: Do you appreciate the try? Bloody oath! Leanne West, Ten News. To Formula 1 and Mark Webber's woes continue. This time forced out of the US Grand Prix in a mass pile-up on the first corner.
