minutes. It doesn't sown like

opener we haven't had rain for 100

days. A record dry spell. When the

they have sexes like ships? It is

big? Must be a bloke if it's big.

Any bloke that says it's big, it

must be female gender is in trouble.

Let's go with male. It does hold up

a lot of men, maybe it is female.

Being clicked are the police officers who want a makeover to command more respect. Victoria cops feel sky blue is "soft" - their words, not ours. They reckon dark blue, like that worn by New York police, has a harder edge.

Especially when you stand like that.

Absolutely. So would a new uniform - something in navy, for example - earn officers more respect? And is sky blue soft?

Well, look on the footy field. There

is Simon over land. Go the whole hog

and go black, like the All Blacks or

the Port away strip. It looks mean.

It does look tough. What about the

Day two of the trial of Bundaberg doctor Jayant Patel gets under way in Brisbane later this morning. A barrage of media greeted Patel when he arrived at court for the start of the trial. He's charged with unlawfully killing three patients - Gerry Kemps, James Phillips and Mervyn Morris - and harming Ian Vowles. Other former patients are watching the case closely. Been a long haul, so very relieved that this day has come. This is the start of the closure and the rest of my life.

The case is being telecast live to the Bundaberg courthouse. Patel has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Air safety investigators have arrived in Darwin to begin piecing together the final moments of yesterday's deadly plane crash. Two pilots were killed instantly when the Air North commuter plane banked sharply during take-off and crashed on the nearby RAAF base. When the plane did go to ground, there was an explosion and quite a fireball. Most of the people in Darwin would've been able to see the plume of smoke that was generated from that crash. The experienced pilots were on a routine training flight. Westpac is moving to charge interest on interest, sparking claims of double dipping by the big banks. Customers have been sent a notice that from June interest will also apply to interest charges and fees on Westpac credit cards. Consumer group Choice says the bank is being "sneaky". But CEO Gail Kelly has reportedly told shareholders she's worried about a political backlash following the decision to hike rates further than the RBA increase in December and the infamous banana ad explaining that rise.

Don't forget, most other banks

charge interest on the interest as

charges interest on the fees though,

In Brisbane, Michael Voss wants his players to embrace the high expectations on them this season and make the top 4. The Raiders have survived a spirited second-half fight-back to down Brisbane 22-14 in the NRL overnight. The Broncos ran in three unanswered tries in the second stanza at Canberra Stadium to get to within four points. But the home side survived a frantic final few minutes to hang on for their first win of the season.

Australia will be desperate for quick wickets when the final day of the first Test gets under way in Wellington this morning. The Black Caps put on 182 runs for the loss of just one wicket yesterday, building a 67-run lead. New Zealand will resume at 6/369 with Brendon McCullum on 94. Now to Grant and today's weather.

since his very public meltdown. He didn't answer all the questions, including what really happened on the night he ploughed his car into a tree outside his home. But Woods was still quite candid with the Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman. Tiger, you've been a master of control your entire life. How did things get so out of control? Going against your core values, losing sight of them. I quit meditating, I quit being a Buddhist and my life changed upside down. I felt I was entitled, which I never had felt before and, consequently, I hurt so many people by my own, you know, reckless attitude and behaviour. For a man who's so disciplined, physically and psychologically,

why couldn't you say no? I don't know. Now I know. But at the time, that's part of what I learned in treatment. Being there for 45 days, you learn a lot. You strip away the denial, the rationalisation and you come to the truth and the truth is very painful at times and to start at yourself and look at the person you've become, you become disgusted. What is the state of your marriage with Elin right now? We're working on it and it's a process that will remain private between her and I. I'm trying to become a better person each and every day and the proof in the pudding is over time and that's what I'm trying to do. I will continue to do that. Tiger Woods speaking with Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman.

I reckon she did a great job. She

has known him for many years and

followed his career closely. So what did she really think of Tiger's answers? Kelly Tilghman spoke to NBC's Meredith Vieira.

You have covered Tiger woods for

years. How would you describe his

demeanour? Different? Very

demeanour? Different? Very similar from the competitive stand point

when we discussed the topic of golf

and his return to the game. A

genuine fire lit up in his belly

genuine fire lit up in his belly and you can see the spark in his eyes

but on personal notes, I sensed he

had a gentler naich

had a gentler nature. He was

had a gentler nature. He was wary from the road he was traveling with

late and he was genuinely excited

about getting inside the golf and

the ropes, one of the few sank

youaries on life. There was one

restriction, the time of five

minutes but you could ask any

question you wanted. What struck you

am thoest most and stood out? The

fact he was taking full ownership of

the mistakes he made. He wanted the

world to know he only blamed

himself. And I was struck the

thought of the absence of his father

in recent years, since 2006 and his

passing was an area he wished would

be different. In an area he thought

with the proper guidance with his

dad he would have

dad he would have found the right

path sooner and avoided the major

mistakes. Did you get the sense he

was saying it because

was saying it because it was the

right thing to say or because he was

contrite. He has always relied on

his father and you can trace it back

to when he was 12 years old. I know

him to be consistent and I know

Tiger Woods when he sets his mind to

something, I know it on a

competitive level, covering him for

the last 15 years, he tends to get

had job done. If he has genuinely

come to the conclusion his life was

headed down the wrong path and he

wants to make a change, spiritually,

psychologically, if he puts his

psychologically, if he puts his mind

to it he will get it done. Do you

think he will recover? I think

signs are pointing in

think he will recover? I think all signs are pointing in the right

direction I do. Is he at all nervous

about the Masters? He is nervous

about the fact he will take on

galleries, not just at the Masters,

which will be very well

which will be very well controlled by the tournament of the Augusta

show, but down the road, a major

championship like the where it is

competeing and vieing for Ws as he likes to call them, victories he

will be ready. Speaking well.

will be ready. Speaking well. What do you think? Did you expect more

emotion from him? You know? It seems

he seems so rehearsed when he

speaks. We were talking about it

before and he has had a life time,

did you expect him to show more. You

want him to break down in tears.

Squirm. He

Squirm. He seems to be so incred Squirm. He seems to be so

he answers in typical Tiger style,

obviously thought a lot about it.

Give us your view. There's been a breakthrough in the hunt by Melbourne police for those involved in a weekend riot which saw a suburban tyre business trashed. A 21-year-old man will face court today after he handed himself in.

They say they identified a number of

Okay, keep us posted on that. Thank

you for your time. Ahead this morning - a new plan to hit vandals where it hurts. But will taking their driver's licence stop them drawing on walls and trashing buildings?

But after the break, we'll call today's major Cash Cow winner. And we're live to Perth after last night's monster storm brought hail, flash flooding and blackouts. The latest on the clean-up next on Sunrise.

What's she said?

The last time I counted, six, the

Maybe because her 4thth birthday is

a bit below the belt. Good one. Now, still to come on Sunrise this morning - Thunderstruck - a monster storm sweeps across Perth. Hail, floods, blackouts.

We're live to the clean-up. Tiger talks - the golf star's first interviews since his downfall. But was it the truth or another Tiger tale? And kitchen king and queen - the Queensland couple whose kitchen rules. Right across Australia, this is Sunrise on Seven.

From Brekky Central, here's Kochie and Mel. If you've just tuned in, Perth is waking up battered and bruised this morning.

We have comprehensive coverage of the big storm that trashed the city late yesterday, starting with Nat and the latest from the newsroom. Good morning. Perth's 100-day drought has broken with a severe storm that caused peak-hour traffic chaos, sparked mudslides and left a trail of damage.

Reporter Ray Kuka joins us from Perth with more. Good morning again, Ray. This thunderstorm hit hard and fast?

That's right. Hard and fast indeed.

Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott will go head to head today in their first nationally televised debate as the unofficial election campaign heats up. The Prime Minister was booed at a Canberra rugby league match last night but Health Minister Nicola Roxon is confident he'll emerge victorious this afternoon. It's good for the public to be able to be in the debate. And people can say "Look, let's do more and let's do them at night as well." But the fact that we're doing it is actually a sign of a very mature democracy. And you can watch the great health debate live on Seven from 12:25 eastern daylight time. A 21-year-old has been charged after confessing he was part of the violent rampage, targeting a Melbourne tyre dealership on Friday night. Maxwell Lawson handed himself in last night and faced an out-of-sessions court hearing, charged with riotous behaviour, affray and criminal damage. Another man filmed as the violence erupted at the Oakleigh Bob Jane T-Mart. He doesn't want to be identified and says police were outnumbered. Cops just sat in their cars and just watched everything happen. Police are checking other video footage and social networking websites

to identify others involved. Australian Rio Tinto executive Stern Hu has admitted taking bribes in China. Australian officials watching the trial say he's admitted accepting some money. During the course of the trial, Mr Hu made some admissions concerning those two bribery counts. We did acknowledge the truth of some of those bribery amounts. The trial is being held in secret but the Australian Government insists they're monitoring it closely. An internal investigation is under way An elderly man is recovering in a Melbourne hospital after being mauled by a dog. The 90-year-old was cycling outside his Thomastown home last night when he was bitten on the leg.

As a result of the attack, he's been

thrown off his bike and he actually

came to the ground, hitting his head

on the ground as well. So he's

suffered a mild head injury. The dog has been seized. In finance news:

Here is Beretts with sport. Thank

you, Kochie. The Raiders have notched up their first win of the NRL season, defeating Brisbane 22-14 at Canberra Stadium overnight. The home side led 18-0 at the break but had to withstand a Broncos' fight-back in the second half. Raiders half-back Josh McCrone sealed victory with a try in the closing seconds

much to the delight of Aussie F1 star and Queanbeyan's favourite son Mark Webber. Port Adelaide superstar Daniel Motlop is almost certain to miss the Power's Round 1 clash with North Melbourne because of hamstring trouble. There's better news for the Crows

with Nathan Van Berlo and Bernie Vince both set to take on Fremantle after overcoming injuries. Australia will be hoping "Windy Wellington"

doesn't live up to its reputation when the final day of the first Test gets under way there this morning. The visitors only managed one wicket on day 4

with Nathan Hauritz removing Kiwi skipper Daniel Vettori for 77. New Zealand will resume at 6/369, 67 runs in front. Football Federation Australia has pledged to search every corner of the world to find a replacement for Pim Verbeek. The Dutchman is quitting as Socceroos boss at the end of the World Cup. FFA wants to appoint a full-time replacement before next year's Asian Cup.

Done a great job, Pim, one great

mission ahead of him, we will miss

him but you won't miss Grant. I

first thoughts of what to do with

it? My gosh, I might go and buy a

bottle of champagne. Well done,

congratulations. Thank you so much.

What a lovely lady. We've got more cash winners at 7:30. And to enter today's draw, you need today's codeword: WEALTH. Now that you have it, call: Perth has been hit by a freak storm not seen in over 50 years. 98,000 homes remain without power. Some of Perth's largest hospitals have also been damaged while at least half-a-dozen schools will be closed today. Let's go to those trying to pick up the pieces. Joining me is Don Fazio from the Fire and Emergency Services Authority. And Ken Brown is in charge of restoring electricity to thousands of Western Power customers. Good morning. Don, what can you tell us about the damage this storm has caused?

Give thus latest on the damage the

storm has caused? Good morning,

basically the damage is widespread

throughout the metropolitan area.

Suburbs as far north affJoondalup,

the western suburbs and all the way

down to Cannington have received

widespread storm damage. An incident

occurring behind us where we had an

inunidation of mud and water into

two apartments units. And so

two apartments units. And so there is a fair bit of damage that has

been occurring. We have got crews

working throughout the night, SES

crews are out there trying to pick

up those pieces. You guys are doing

an amazing job, just seeing the

vision of of the storm hitting. That

is some way to break a dry spell?

Shoo Sorry, I missed that? That is

some way to break a dry spell. A

record dry spell ends with this?

Yes, it certainly was. Everyone has Yes, it certainly was. Everyone

hanging out for a bit of rain and

they certainly got their wish. Ken,

how many of your customers remain

without power and how long will it

take to restore it? Yes,

approximately 100,000 are still off

from 160,000 last night. There is

lightning around and we lost a

substation 20 minutes ago and lost

more. So you still battling the

elements, even now? Yes, it is

actually still rain agbit here but

there is quite a lot of

there is quite a lot of lightening in the northern suburbs. Does it

mean work comes to a stand still

when there is litheening We

certainly hold off on switching and

getting on the wires for safety

reasons but we are actually doing as

much restoration as we can in areas

where there is no lightening. Don,

when it last time you got hit by

something like this? Kochie, I can't

remember, actually. We had fairly

major storms in the 'nikets that

caused a fair bit -- '90s that

caused a fair bit of damage but

nothing like this in the memory. I

would like to you to know we have

got a number of SES crews through

the night, they are doing the best,

and we need the public to be

patient. The whole of FEES is

working on it. Thank you. For your time. Is the worst over for Perth or is there more storms yet to come?

Let's go to Tom Saunders from the Weather Channel. Good morning, Tom. Was there any warning this storm was going to hit?

I was in fact watching you guys a

bit yesterday, you were predict

agbit of rain but nothing like this?

Good morning, actually there was

some warning issued a few hours

before the storms hit purgtd. It was

pretty much the ideal set up for

thunderstorms to develop. Very warm

humid air on the surface of Western

Australia but cold air aloft. It was

the contrast between the two that

led to the violent thunderstorms.

They were forecast since last

Friday. But nothing this big. When

is the last time something like this

happened for Perth? It is a good

question. It

question. It is hard to get back

through the record books but they

don't get a lot of storms in Perth.

The ones they get through are in

winter but large hail and torrential

flood sg rare. Some of the northern

subers had 60mm of rain in an hour

or two, four times the average

average mism And storms around so

hampering the clean up operation?

Yes, there are a few storms around

purgtd this morning, the cold dry

air aloft, the whole mass is

weakening and heading south so the

storms won't be as severe as

yesterday. We might leave you, we

have got a problem with your Mic, so

thank you for the updates, still

unsettled weather for Perth residents today. Coming up on Sunrise, hitting them where it hurts - we've got the call for vandals to have their driving licences taken away.

But would it stop them? We'll seek some views. Right now, though, here's Mel. Tiger Woods' fall from grace shocked the world. After his string of affairs became public, the world number one golfer suddenly became the butt of jokes. Now for the first time since his meltdown, Tiger has given two separate interviews. He concedes he's been living a lie and must now fight to win back the love of his wife, family and fans. Tiger, you've been a master of control your entire life.

How did things get so out of control?

Going against your core values, losing sight of them. I quit meditating, I quit being a Buddhist and my life changed upside down. I felt I was entitled, which I never had felt before and, consequently, I hurt so many people by my own, you know, reckless attitude and behaviour. Were there moments you thought you should stop, but didn't? Yeah. I tried to stop and I couldn't stop and it was just - it was horrific. What I know I have to do is become a better person and that begins with going to more treatment. You went from being recognised as the greatest golfer in the world to becoming a punchline. How did that make you feel? Ah, it was hurtful but then again, you know what? I did it.

I'm the one who did those things. What is the state of your marriage with Elin right now? We're working on it and it's a process that will remain private between her and I. How will you explain this to your children one day when they're old enough to understand? Yeah, we'll have that sit-down talk. It won't be just one time, I know that. It will be numerous times and I take full ownership of it. I did it, no-one else did it, it was just me and that's the responsibility that I will have. I will talk to my kids for however long they want to talk about it. That is a conversation that will need to be had. You said you've made transgressions.

How would you, in your own words, describe the depth of your infidelity?

Well, just one is enough and, obviously, that wasn't the case and I made my mistakes and, as I said, I've hurt so many people and so many people I have to make an amends to and that's living a life of amends. Given all that's happened, what's your measure of success at Augusta? Well, playing is one thing. I'm excited to get back in play, I'm excited to see the guys again. I really missed a lot of my friends out there. I miss competing. But still, I still have a lot more treatment to do and just because I'm playing doesn't mean I'm going to stop going to treatment. What reception are you expecting from fans? I don't know. I don't know. Um...I'm a little nervous about that and to be honest with you, it's... How much do you care? It would be nice to hear a couple of claps here and there! But I also hope there's claps for birdies too! 11 months ago, what was your wife's reaction when you sat down and had that first conversation? She was hurt. She was hurt - very hurt. Shocked, angry and, you know, she had every right to be and I'm as disappointed as everyone else in my own behaviour because I can't believe I actually did that to the people I loved.

How do you reconcile what you've done with that love? We work at it. So is Tiger back on track? And will his family and his fans forgive him? We're joined now by Gloria Allred who represented Joslyn James, one of the women Tiger was allegedly linked to,

plus Allan Pease, body language expert, is also here to give us his take on the Tiger interview. Gloria, let's start with you. What did you think of Tiger's two interviews?

Given they were basically the jurnos

could ask whatever they wanted, as

long as it was within five minutes?

Interesting, I do represent Joslyn

James, who had a three-year romantic

intensive relationship with Tiger

Woods and we called on him to

specifically apologise to her but he

has not. Now, in the interview

yesterday on the Golf Channel and

ESPN he mouthed the words he was

take responsibility but where are

those actions to support the word?

There are are none. He, in the

alcoholics 12-step recovery program,

Mel, it says, numbers 8 and 9 steps

are that it is important to make

direct amendments to the persons you

have harmed, essentially to all of

them. But he has not

them. But he has not specifically apologised to lying to Jocelyn, for

telling her he loved her, for

telling her she was the only one and

they would have a lifetime of this,

why has he not

why has he not specifically apologised to her and until he has,

I cannot believe the apology is

sincere. Taking the Jocelyn

situation away, if I can ask you,

you have seen a lot of high-rofile

cases and heard high-profile people

talk, do you think Tiger is talking

the truth or commreeltly briefed and

advised on what to say? Well,

advised on what to say? Well, 100 per cent he has a high-profile

public relations firm preparing him

for these kinds of interviews,

carefully selected golf channel,

ESPN. Obviously they want more

interviews with him. They didn't

even ask him about the specifics of

the Jocelyn, a woman who

the Jocelyn, a woman who obviously he had a relationship with. She has

released a lot of evidence of thet,

and yet, so I am saying he was

prepared for all of these questions.

He had been criticised before for

looking too robotic, now he is

supposedly looking more sincere but

he wants to make amendments to his

fans and colleagues, what about the

woman he has hurt. Alan, what are

your views, pardon me, on how he

spoke, what he said? Was he telling

the truth I watched the interviews

three time, if thirst time with the

sound off so you can see the

emotion. And the interview is very

different. With the woman, she

different. With the woman, she was taking the role of the mother saying, " saying, taking the role of the mother Saying, "

Saying, "You have been a very

naughty boy." And he had his hands

behind him, with the woman and the

hands in front, in the man, Showing

he is open to her and not

threatened. He has got a thing about

women. You can say that. But with

the guy he was talking to his

father, telling him off. Saying,

this is the way it is. He was saying

Yugoslavia don't do this with your

core values but apart from the woman

he owned the core values and said he

did a bad thing, you can hear the

therapy of 45 days coming in there.

It is obvious he has been media

trained since day dot, it is what he

is, a professional sportsman, was

there any naturalness coming through

or just rehearsed and trained?

or just rehearsed and trained? Do you think? Well, you got to remember

also he was raid in a very strict

family as a Buddhist which has a

very strong code of how they think

and behave. Therapy give use another

code of behaviour. He wants to

code of behaviour. He wants to repeat the code of behaviour, he

wants to live to that because he

can't sigh a way out of the problem.

You get a lot of interviewing him,

women are chasing his this is guy's

tail hard, the testosterone has

driven had him. It is not like the

wife discovered, this guy has high

testosterone. When you marry a guy,

you know what it is like, it doesn't

appear after a couple of years and

that still has to be addressed. We

have covered it all. Thank you for

your time. Back to Kochie. It's time now for another AFL season preview. Today, Tom Harley is taking a look at the Crows, the Lions and the Magpies. Well, the Magpies were firmly in the top 4 last year but are Malthouse's men a chance of taking out this year's premiership? Collingwood genuinely believe they're a premiership chance this year and rightly so - they've played in two of the last three preliminary finals and very close to getting to that last day in September. They've also recruited for the now with Luke Ball from St Kilda and probably, more importantly, Darren Jolly who will, in my opinion, end up being the recruit of the year. A top 4 finish awaits for the Pies in 2010. They finished fifth in 2009. So, can the Crows soar back to the top? The Adelaide Crows will be thereabouts against in 2010. They had a good finish to the end of last year and finished fifth. I think they'll probably drop down a couple of spots. Playing 12 or so games at home, they could probably win 10 of them. Sneak a couple in Melbourne and all of a sudden, they're knocking on the top 4. Brisbane has one of the most formidable forward line-ups

in the game. But can the Lions bring back the glory days? Brisbane Lions have been a huge player in the off season with their recruitment with the likes of Fevola, obviously. The big talking point's obviously the Brown and Fevola combination whether they'll be as big a combo as the game's seen in recent history. So I'm tipping them to be just on the edge of the top 4

and probably finish about fifth or sixth. Tom Harley with Beretts. In rugby league, Round 2 of the NRL wrapped up last night. Canberra posted a 22-14 win over Brisbane. That's given the boys a much-needed early boost.

Remember the girls were chortling

this time last week? You think I

called it too early? You did. The

boys picked the perfect round. It

husband put them one point ahead.

Enjoy it while you can. Game on. Straight ahead on Sunrise - electricity companies work hard to restore power to thousands of homes hit by Perth's storm. We'll tell you how they're going. And later, the cooking secrets of the couple who won 'My Kitchen Rules'. Then, jeers for the PM.

(booing. Lovely, hands down the

right-hand side, the PM things it

was pretty good as well. Don't have

to go to the polls to know where he

is at the moment in the voters' eyes. You might not like his politics,

but does our Prime
