Time for sport. Here's Beretts. is staring at his third suspension Hawthorn superstar Lance Franklin in the space of eight matches. for a high bump Franklin was reported

yesterday on Sydney's Martin Mattner

the Hawks' gritty 2-point win. taking much of the gloss off In yesterday's twilight encounter, hit new heights Fremantle's remarkable resurgence of North Melbourne at Subiaco. with a 61-point drubbing set up the effortless win. A dominant 10-goal third term of a third straight race win Mark Webber has been robbed by team-mate Sebastian Vettel at the Turkish Formula One Grand Prix overnight. The Red Bull duo were jostling for the lead on lap 40 when Vettel contacted Webber handing McLaren's Lewis Hamilton victory. Webber recovered to finish third and take sole possession of the driver's championship. The Matildas have delivered Australia's first-ever Asian football title, downing North Korea in the final of the Asian Cup. China's monsoonal conditions proved no obstacle as the Matildas triumphed in a penalty shoot-out 5-4. Meantime, Harry Kewell has been put through his paces in a solo training session overnight. It's the most intense work the striker has done since arriving in Johannesburg. Aussie pair Cadel Evans and Richie Porte have finished 5th and 7th respectively

after the final stage of the Giro d'Italia this morning. Port's impressive Grand Tour debut earned him the Young Rider's title. Italy's Ivan Basso claimed overall honours. Now to Grant and today's weather.

He is on breeu by island this

morning. Good morning, happy Monday

to everybody indeed. I know it has

been a fairly wild couple of days.

We are going to break some of that

down for you and let you know what

you are in for. Why don't we get

straight into it. Sunrise weather for Beacon Lighting. Save on thousands of items during the Beacon Lighting Stocktake Sale now on. It has to be Beacon.

Bribie Island, beautiful Bribie, a

great where great people do peoply

things. To be honest, I got here

about 30 seconds ago so I will

Google five facts about Bribie

Island and tell you why we wanted to

come here in 20 minutes. It has a

great bridge. Great bridge, on the

way in, unfortunately we had to call

the RACV to start the flat battery

so I just got in. Gee, that is

giving you a bit of strife the old

come by. Zblits still going just.

That's the adventure, it's the

spirit of the drive. RACV came a

long way. I will talk to you soon. Coming up - actor Matthew Newton talks about his new role as the host of 'X Factor'. And which trade has the hottest workers? Straight ahead, though, the end of the road for the 'Shrek' story. We'll catch up with the cast for their final movie when Sunrise continues. they're easier to find than ever. But if you do need help, with the soul of a small. new blood and a new skin. Men of Gold. Sunrise books online at accorhotels.com Enjoy a choice, enjoy your stay. It's been almost a decade

since the very first 'Shrek' movie hit the big screen. But now, it's time to say "ogre and out".

The final film is released in a couple of weeks time. Our entertainment editor, Fifi, has been chatting to the cast about the new movie and what it's like to finish up.

Better out than in. It's movie number four for Shrek

and he's gone from being the grumpy ogre to the happy family man. But you know what? It's not really his style. I used to be an ogre. Now I'm just a jolly green joke. I think it's fair to say we meet Shrek in this movie struggling with his role as a domestic house husband, perhaps? I think it would be more accurate to say that... ..ogres don't love themselves and they don't feel that they have a right to happily ever after. He has everything that he ever wanted and it's still not enough.

That's kind of my take on it. Sometimes I wish I had just one day to feel like a real ogre again. Well, why didn't you say so?

Just sign it and all your problems will disappear. Through a deal with Rumpelstiltskin,

Shrek ends up in an alternate reality... Oh-oh!

..where the characters have some weighty issues to deal with.

Feed me...if you dare. Puss, what happened to you? You got so fa... ..fa-ncy. I think it's fair to say that Puss has been in a good paddock for a while! Is that...?

(LAUGHS) Yeah! But that doesn't bother me.

What really bothers me is the pink ribbon that they put on him.

That really hurt me. When I saw the first drawing, I said "Is this necessary?" And, of course, there's Donkey. Yeah! Waffles! And I thought the Waffle Fairy was just a bedtime story. Usually, you're the one who's fattening up for roles, putting on the big fat suit. This time it was Antonio! Were you relieved that he got to fatten up? Oh, well, you know...(LAUGHS) ..well, you know, I think it's kind of funny. His cat is really funny fat. I don't know if the donkey - a fat donkey wouldn't have been as funny. No. Obese donkey. An obese cat is much funnier. So sharpen your pitchforks and get your mob on! Get him! It's been a long time since we first met Shrek and the filmmakers clearly have the same fear as the character - that it could all become a bit boring. So now, it's coming to an end with this final chapter. Is it quite sad for it to be the final instalment for you,

to say goodbye to Shrek? It is sad.

Um...and it's sort of - I think it's sinking in with us more and more as we go along but, you know, in the press moment that we're having, um, but I think it's really tasteful that they did end it. I think it's very elegant like on British TV when a series ends and you go "What a great idea". It has come to a complete full thought. Then Shrek kissed the princess, she turn into a beautiful ogre and they lived... ..happily... ..Ever... ..After! (ALL CHEER)

It's good to see a kids' movie

that's bright and fun rather than

deep and brooding. There's something

for kids and usually something for

mum and dad. Something the kids

don't get. Thank goodness. On the way this hour - will soccer's World Cup solve some of South Africa's problems?

And later, the controversial drugs-in-sport campaign coming soon to a school near you. But next, why are teenage girls becoming more violent?

What's Making News brought to you by Beacon Lighting. Save on thousands of items during the Beacon Lighting Stocktake Sale - on now. It has to be Beacon. Let's see what's making news on the world wide web. The rise of schoolyard violence involving girls is one of the most viewed stories. A video of a brawl on the New South Wales Central Coast shows how nasty teenage girls can be.

The 14-year-old victim ended up with a broken nose. And figures show female violence in schools has jumped about 70% in the past five years. So what's happened to our teenage girls?

We'll seek some views later this Sunrise. But in the meantime, have your say.

I know we have talked about

previously of road rage and the

growing incidence of females

growing incidence of females behind the wheel. What is causing it? It's

one of the most sick evening things

you can see, at any

you can see, isn't it? Just wonder,

OK, called me old fashioned again,

but is it this this breakdown of

maybe respect? Respect boys

breakdown of respect of boys to

girls and vice versa, this whole

thing of video games and the

violence that they are being

subjected to, two of the role mod

Emirates on TV shows of women are

quite aggressive now, more than

quite aggressive now, more than say in the past. I don't know. What do

you think? How different is it today

to when you girls were that age?

Well, no, girls weren't fighting

around our school. I can't remember

girls fighting at all ever. What has

changed I have no idea, I suppose I

am not in that teenage mould, our

kids are pre tween. I don't

kids are pre tween. I don't feel like I can enter into that world. Give us your theer

Give us your theory. Maybe if they

looked at that footage and saw how

stu pid they were. They were egging this on

this on until the girl got her nose

broken. Give us your ideas.

broken. Give us your ideas.. Also being clicked, the survey that reveals we just love Kiwis.

The Lowy Institute's annual snapshot of our views on the world shows we have the warmest feelings about New Zealand, Canada and France. Iran and North Korea were bottom of the list. On the minds of Australians is the fear

the rise of China could harm our interests. We're also concerned about illegal boat arrivals. And there's been a drop in support for immediate action on climate change. But back to the Kiwis. Why do we like them?

If we want to beat anyone at sport,

we want to beat the Kiwis but if we

want to love someone. It's like your

relationship with your brother. You

pretend not to like them You slag

them all the time. When push comes

to shove, they are the ones you call

on. Do anything for them. They are

very similar to us in sense of

humour, outlook on life. Finally making news, a campaign to help find 10 eligible tradies find love. 'New Idea' is behind the push and we'll meet some of the guys later this morning. But it got us thinking about tradies. What makes them sexy? And which trades have the hottest workers?

Why aren't accountants in their

league and things like that? Sort of

middle managers or Clark clerks and

things like that. What is it about a

trady. Let's just talk about tradies

today Why them. We will talk about

accountants another day. You wear

more clothes. The fact that they are

wearing shorts and a singlet. If

accountants got a bit sweat yer,

would that help. I am sure tax time.

drawing every one's attention to T I

went caveman, cave woman. Let's move

on while you dig your way out. Later this morning - the shocking truth on how smoking prematurely ages your skin. Also, how Melbourne is turning to hired bikes to get around the city. And soon, Kochie's wheelchair challenge. Watch him make it to the top of one of the steepest hills you'll ever see on Sunrise.

Counselling will be offered to classmates of two young Victorian boys found dead in the State's Goulburn Valley last night. Their mother is being questioned by police after their father raised the alarm at a house in Mooroopna around two hours north of Melbourne. It's obviously distressing for all people involved and we'll do our best to work with the neighbours and friends and people who are grieving.

An autopsy will determine how the 7-and 9-year-olds died. The Illawarra region south of Sydney is preparing for wild weather as a storm approaches this morning. Yesterday, the New South Wales South Coast copped the brunt of it with fierce winds and heavy rain belting the towns of Narooma and Moruya. Around 9,000 homes were blacked out. A low-pressure system is heading towards Illawarra as we speak and we are sort of expecting heavy rains and gale-force winds. Yesterday alone, SES received hundreds of calls for help, mainly for fallen trees. The Chinese coal carrier that ran aground, spilling oil around Queensland's Great Barrier Reef, is finally heading home. Maritime Safety says the 'Shen Neng 1' will be towed back to China and expects the trip to take up to five weeks. The 'Shen Neng' hit the reef at Easter, damaging its hull. Repairs in Gladstone failed so one-third of the vessel's 65,000-tonne load of coal was unloaded, allowing it to be towed. A top adviser to US President Barack Obama has warned oil may continue gushing into the Gulf of Mexico for months. BP's latest attempt to stop the spill failed yesterday and now it's feared their only hope will be drilling relief wells. We're prepared for the worst. 'til August There could be oil coming up when the relief wells are dug. for more than 40 days. Oil has been spilling into the ocean Police weren't laughing by two Irish tourists at a midnight prank last night. who jumped into Sydney Harbour The pair stripped to their underwear into the water at Circular Quay and dived from a ferry climbed out near the Opera House. but were arrested when they

All eyes are on South Africa in the lead up to the Soccer World Cup.

But it's not all world class stadiums and enthusiastic fans. More than a quarter of South Africans are living in poverty and the country is in the grip of the world's worst AIDS epidemic. Reverend Tim Costello from World Vision joins me now, to talk about what's being done to combat these problems. Good morning. How would you describe the standard of living in South Africa? ,

Once Nelson Mandela came to power,

the abolition of Apartheid, that

things would be picking up. I

things would be picking up. I think we have to remember, that was an

extraordinary miracle, in 1994

extraordinary miracle, in 1994 when South Africa avoided blood shed,

that everybody predicted, one man,

Nelson Mandela lifted the whole

nation. Since then, all the hopes

haven't been realised. We have this confusion

confusion in our minds, South

Africa, great cricket teams, great

game parks and yet, 26% of the

population over 12 million, trying

to live on less than $ to live on less than $1. to live on less than $1.25 a day.

Mainly in urban centres and the

crime and corruption is so great

that archbishop tutu has said we

have lost our pride. This isn't just

due to poverty, this crime and

corruption. Zooey corruption. Zooey nor must

challenges. If we lose South Africa,

we lose the whole of the African

continent. It is the engine house

for lifting all of Africa. So, more

than just soccer there, a whole

drama played out about really seeing

it hold the line and lift the people

out of poverty. Also the

out of poverty. Also the AIDS

situation in South Africa. I had to

go through there to get to

go through there to get to kill man

about not just how to prevent, how

Farmers grow enough for child headed

the World Cup help it? Will it bring

a nation together? Stop of a nation together? Stop a nation together? Stop the

I think it will. The great thing

about the World Cup and soccer is

that far better to be watching and

playing soccer than throwing rocks

and getting angry. It and getting angry. It actually

harnesses some of the energies into

new blood and a new skin. Men of Gold. The Sunrise Showbiz Report brought to you by 'New Idea'. For all the latest celebrity news and more. Showbiz Editor Nelson Aspen is in LA and Hollywood is mourning the death of Gary Coleman and Dennis Hopper but their families are causing some controversy.

That's right. You might recall that

the iconic Dennis Hopper was going

through a very through a very messy divorce and it

was not final so you can look for

this to end up in probate court.

Under the terms of their pre-nup,

she would receive 25% of his

fortune, plus a $ fortune, plus a $250,000 life

assurance pay out if they were living together at the time of his

death. Now, they were separated but

she was living in a guest house on

his property. So, you can expect her

to try and fight for what she

believes is hers under believes is hers under the terms of

the pre-nup. As for Gary Coleman,

you might recall that decades ago he

had a big falling out with his

parents whom he blamed for stealing

the fortune that he made as a child

star. His parents have spoken out

saying that they haven't been able

to keep up with him except for in

the tabloid press for the last 10

years. They feel sorry that they

weren't able to be be at his bedside. Kind of

bedside. Kind of a veiled remark at

Garry's widow who basically has been

thanking everybody for their support

but the parents are still wondering

exactly how Garry had an accident

that led to the brain haemorrhage.

Very complicated family matters

going on. Isn't there always. Just

you have got some exclusive

information on Isobel Lucas' new

film? I do indeed. It was to film? I do indeed. It was to be called Kin but

called Kin but I just got a message from her people that they have

changed the name to the wedding

party. It's an Australian film

co-stars Josh Lawson and it will

make its world premiere in

make its world premiere in October in the Melbourne interest fat film

festival. All you folks in Melbourne

should series bell, in the wedding party. Thank

party. Thank you for the update. See

you soon. See you. Now, still to come on Sunrise this morning - Fight club - another schoolgirl brawl as playground violence spirals out of control. So what's gone wrong with teenage girls? Kewell running -

the Socceroos striker put through his toughest fitness test ahead of the World Cup. Our cameras take you there. You're being interviewed by Fifi Box. Oh, am I? Eddie Murphy and the rest of the Shrek cast talk to Fifi about their final movie together. It's Monday 31 May 2010. Right across Australia, this is Sunrise on Seven. From Brekky Central, here's Kochie and Mel.

If you've just tuned in this morning - my mate is recovering

after he pushed his way to the top of one of the steepest hills you'll ever see. We'll show you more a little later in the show.

Look at this. Sydney being

absolutely drenched this morning. But for

But for all your latest But for all your latest news, here is Nat. Good morning. Police say an autopsy will be needed to find out how two young boys died in Victoria's Goulburn Valley last night. The brothers, aged 7 and 9, were found dead inside the family's Mooroopna home. Their 29-year-old mother is being questioned after their father raised the alarm. Detectives say there were no obvious signs of injury. Classmates at the boys' school will be offered counselling today.

A man is due in a Gold Coast court later this morning charged over a deadly shooting during a housewarming party. It's believed the 46-year-old victim got into an argument with a neighbour before he was shot. The screaming was - you could tell that something was devastatingly wrong. So much for a neighbourly housewarming party. A 36-year-old man has been charged with murder and attempted murder. Police in western Sydney are hunting a gunman after shots were fired into an Abbotsbury home last night. 2 adults and 2 children were asleep inside but weren't hurt. Several bullets were found lodged in the garage and front door. Police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward. Emergency Services say the wild weather in New South Wales isn't over yet with storms now headed for the Illawarra region south of Sydney. Yesterday on the state's South Coast as many as 9,000 homes were blacked out during fierce winds and heavy rain. The weather bureau says the same system is moving north

and although it's weakening, it could still pack a punch. WA's Police Minister says he's disappointed by mistakes that have delayed the extradition of murder suspect Cameron Mansell. He'll meet with the state's Police Commissioner today ahead of tomorrow's Federal Court hearing in Townsville to decide if the warrant used to arrest Mansell in Queensland was valid. Are you disappointed with the lawyers for doing that or with police for not getting that page signed? Oh, look... Or both? I suppose both quite honestly, disappointed that every page wasn't signed as it should've been done. Police suspect Cameron Mansell over the murder of missing business partner Craig Puddy. Giant pandas born in captivity in China will soon have a special centre where they'll be taught to survive in the wild. The multimillion-dollar sanctuary is being built in the Sichuan Province and will take five years to complete. Three giant pandas which will be trained there for 15 years

before being released into the wild. In finance news:

today after the weaker lead

today after the weaker lead from Wall Street. The Reserve Bank meets

tomorrow, not expected to change interest rates. Time for sport. Hawthorn superstar Lance Franklin is staring at his third suspension in the space of eight matches. Franklin was reported for a high bump on Sydney's Marty Mattner yesterday, taking much of the gloss off the Hawks' gritty 2-point win. In yesterday's twilight encounter, Fremantle's remarkable resurgence hit new heights with a 61-point drubbing of North Melbourne at Subiaco. A dominant 10-goal third quarter set up the effortless win. Mark Webber has been robbed of a third-straight race win by team-mate Sebastian Vettel at the Turkish Formula one Grand Prix overnight. The Red Bull duo were jostling for the lead on lap 40 when Vettel contacted Webber,

handing McLaren's Lewis Hamilton victory. Webber recovered to finish third and take sole possession of the driver's championship lead.

Harry Kewell's injured groin was given its sternest test overnight in a solo training session in Johnanesburg. The striker won't play in tomorrow night's friendly against Denmark. Mark Schwarzer returns from a hand injury. In China, the Matildas provided the Socceroos with some World Cup motivation, defeating North Korea on penalties to take out the Asian Cup. Andy Murray is the latest big name

to be sent packing from the French Open. The Scotsman crashed out to Thomas Berdych in straight sets this morning. Women's second seed Venus Williams was also eliminated, going down to Russia's Nadia Petrova in straight sets. Let's check in with Grant.

There sure is, feeling a little bit

guilty to be honest, standing up here at beautiful Bribie here at beautiful Bribie Island,

just north of brings in sunny

conditions when so much has happened

down the south coast of New South

Wales. Huge rain falls. That's for

the upper Bega river. Some big rain

falls in Sydney right now,

falls in Sydney right now, raining very, very heavy. Has only been

about 5 ml that has fallen

overnight. It will continue

throughout most of the day. It won't

throughout most of the day. It won't be as heavy or as dangerous or as

significant as anything we have seen

down on the south coast but it will

continue. The one thing that is

going to happen today for the south

coast of New South Wales and

stretching a little further north is

dangerous surf conditions so quite

big and rough swell is what is

expected today and some strong winds

as well. About 60 km/h we are

expecting today when it has been as

high as 120 odd down the south coast. Most of coast. Most of the concentration

around the ill war why a was look at the weather now. Sunrise weather for Beacon Lighting. Up to 50% off everything sale on now. It has to be Beacon. Dry in Townsville, and 25. 21 in Maroochydore. Early drizzle in Toowoomba, and 15. Fine and 21 in Brisbane. Cloudy and 19 in Bourke. A few showers and 13 in Orange. Rain periods in Sydney, and 18. Showers clearing in Canberra, and 15.

So, the locals are coming on down to

tell us why Bribie Island is a

beautiful place to be and live. A

lot of people have moved from places like Victoria

like Victoria and New South Wales to

get that sea change and sunny sky

escape. So it is a great little

location to be. We will show you why

in another half an hour. It is a

beautiful spot. Alright, Grant,

thank you for that. A controversial new anti-doping campaign

is being launched today in Canberra. It features a confronting poster, showing an athlete injecting himself. These posters will be displayed in sports clubs and high schools.

But is this going too far? Let's ask Amber Halliday, who's an Olympic rower turned elite cyclist, plus sports psychologist Dr Patsy Tremayne. Good morning to you both. Amber, you've been an elite athlete for more than 12 years.

How widespread is the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sport?

Well, Kochy, it's hard to say how

widespread it is, even though we

have been Dee teching more in the

last five years, whether or not

that's due to actual doping or just

the fact that we are getting better

at detected remains to be seen. But,

I think from my experience, I come

from what I like to think is a clean

sport of rowing. Rowing is - there is not much money from n

is not much money from n it and it's

very technical and it doesn't seem

to attract the sort of people who

would cheat anyway. So, I for one

have never seen it. But since

switching to cycling, I have now

been in a paleton overseas where I

am actually competing against girls

who have served a two year ban for

drugs. I don't know how they can do

it how they can come back and face

their peers. You

their peers. You would hope that yes their peers. You would hope that

their peers. You would hope that yes it is an issue but it would be a

tiny percentage of elite these that

do it, you are saying it may be more

than that and maybe high school kids

do need to see such graphic images

if ever they go to an elite level and if ever they go to an elite level

and are maybe put into a situation

of taking drugs, they can reject it

of taking drugs, they can reject it and make an informed decision. You

are exactly right. Churchy. First of

all, the roll out to high schools,

it's not compulsory, it's up to the

school to put up the posters. We

encourage them to get in touch with

us to get the materials. Who knows

the pressure of peer pressure but we

are using it in this are using it in this situation rather are using it in this situation

are using it in this situation for good rather than

good rather than evil. Dr Tremayne,

let's bring you in here, is it

purely because you are an elite

athlete, that motivation, that

desire to win that means you take

drugs Well, I would like to think as

a sports ogist that these want to

just perform to their best, to their

potential but bottom line is, yes,

they want to

they want to win. I think it has

they want to win. I think it has - they will do anything to win some of

these athletes. That's why I think

this poster with the word " this poster with the word "within"

in it is quite important. I am sure

that will motivate or hopefully will

stop people wanting to take drugs.

OK. How can you stop them?

OK. How can you stop them?? Is it purely purely posters like this? Is purely posters like this? Is it just

a change in culture or do we have to

increase the penalties for being

caught. I don't think the increasing

the penalties is going to do it. I

mean, I am thinking of cigarettes

and all the health ban that is they

have put on cigarettes and it's not

really working with smokers who are

addicted to it. But, I believe that

more education, posters like this, they are

they are just a small part but

having them up, perhaps in high

schools and in locker rooms is going

to make a difference. OK. Amber,

what about you on this issue of

penalties because in some sports you

say you have to get a lifetime ban

but I can't remember the last time

that was imposed. Often they just

get a year or two as a penalty and

that's it.

that's it. Is that a big enough

penalty? No, it's absolutely not

enough. Excuse me. I think any elite

athlete who is motivated enough and

gets paid enough can go away and

train for 2 years if they have a two

year ban. I just don't agree with

that. I wrote an article, I am a part-time that. I wrote an article, I am a part-time

part-time journalist at home and I wrote an article to that wrote an article to that effect,

Kate Ellis, our sports minister

happened to see it and hey guess what, we

what, we have got something in the

pipeline that's up that Ally. That

is re cruding an extra tool in the

fight against drugs in sport, that

is peer pressure and the fact that

you lose your reputation when you

make the wrong decision. Yes. Once

you lose your reputation, it's very

hard to regain it. Ladies, thank

hard to regain it. Ladies, thank you very much for joining us. It's an

very much for joining us. It's an interesting topic. Let us know on the Say you have to dash to a meeting or run a quick errand across the other side of town. Most of us would jump in a cab, catch a bus or a train or if there's time, walk. Well, now there's another option, the Bixi. It's a new public transport service that allows you to hire a bike to get around the city. It's already a huge success in cities like Paris, Stockholm and Montreal. But will it work here? Joining us is our Melbourne correspondent, Nuala Hafner. How exactly will this bike sharing system work?

Morning, Mel, from today, bikes like

this will hopefully be seen all

across Melbourne, Brisbane and

Fremantle looking at a similar

schemes. Here it's a $ schemes. Here it's a $5 million,

aimed cheap quick and healthy way

toss get around the city. One of toss get around the city. One of the

people behind the scheme is Gordon

Oakley. Starting from today, we will

have 100 bikes across ten bike

stationness Melbourne and in the

coming weeks, we will add another

500 bikes and a total of 50 docking

stations in the city. What is behind

the initiative? Who do you think

will use them. I think there are a

number Commuters, people number Commuters, people who

currently commute around Melbourne

during the day, uni students who

need to get from work to lecture.

There are a lot of people who on

live in the Docklands and the city,

we think this is a useful way for

them to get around Melbourne. It's a

huge success in Paris, Stockholm,

will Australians take to this? Are

we going to use these.

we going to use these.? We think

it's great and obviously to be part of it, we of it, we think it's a great idea.

It helps trance fornl the way city

looks. It looks more vibrant and maybe European

maybe European I feel a bit European

standing here. How does it work?

It's BYO helmet. That's one

difference, we have got mandatory

helmet laws. That's right. You bring

your helmet. You can become an your helmet. You can become an annual your helmet. You can become an

annual subscriber which is $

annual subscriber which is $50 a

year. You get one of these blue keys

and you just put it in and you ride

it for up to 30 minutes for free.

You can do that as many times as you

like. If you haven't got one of

these, you just get a credit card,

put it in, and it's $ put it in, and it's $2.

put it in, and it's $2.50 for a day.

What is to stop me not bringing this

back? The fact is we have got your

name and address name and address and we name and address and we have also

got your credit card details. We

don't think that will happen very

often. I will be returning it then.

It's a fantastic idea on so many

levels, you just have to learn how

to ride. Thank you Nuala for that.

Gordon, good luck. We will get one

with training wheels for us. with training wheels for us.. Seven's new talent show 'X Factor' will have a Newton hosting the program. It's not Bert - it's his son Matthew. The 33-year-old actor's picked up the role,

after a stint in rehab for an undisclosed illness. Matthew says support from his friends and family got him through. Blake Johnson reports. It's a long way to Perth so let's... ALL SHOUT: Rock-and-roll! (ALL CHEER) It's been a long way back for Matthew Newton too, admitted to a Melbourne rehab hospital last month and now, a massive career and confidence boost. Matthew Newton, everyone! (CROWD CHEERS) Far from Newton's past troubles - trashing a hotel room and accused, but later cleared of assault - he says his closest friends and family got him through. I'm really lucky. I've got a great bunch of people around me. I have a great family, I have great friends, I have a wonderful girlfriend. Um, I have a terrific agent. An actor, used to reading scripts. Now he's following dad, Bert Newton, hosting live TV - Seven's new talent show, 'The X Factor'. It came up and I went down and met with the guys and put something down on tape and they liked it, luckily. Auditions began in Perth yesterday. # Skippin' and a-jumpin'... # You nervous? Yeah, a little bit but I'm dealing with it. Have you got the X Factor?

I think so, yeah. # And the endless that you feel... # Matthew Newton admits being host is a huge step up.

He says it's the biggest job he's ever done. I'm in the process of learning a lot about myself and, you know, and other people and this show's all about putting your attention on the other person. So, he's exciting, nervous, not quite sure what to expect. Matt Newton probably shares those emotions

with the thousand-odd people auditioning today. It's a tough schedule from here - months of filming. 'The X Factor' won't wrap up until the end of the year. Auditions in Perth finish today. The rest of the country, to come. Pretty keen to show Australia what we've got. What have you got? Talent. We've got the X Factor! Now, here's Beretts to talk sport.

Talking sport, brought to you by BigPond sport. Now everyone can be online at the same time. Rugby league star Johnathan Thurston will find out today whether he'll be reprimanded for a foul-mouthed tirade. On-field microphones caught the North Queenslander using the F-word five times in an exchange with the ref during his side's loss to Manly.

So should he be punished? Let's ask Jim and Rebecca Wilson and AFL legend Tom Harley. Jim, was Thurston out of line?

Was he out of line He I think he was

extremely frustrated. Referees get

thing wrong. You can't go and mouth

off, especially the F bomb five

times in succession. I just think it

wasn't called for. The AFL and

Tommy, you can talk more Tommy, you can talk more about this,

the AFL is trying their hardest to

get umpires into their ranks. Even

at junior footy ranks, I go and

watch my son, you've got fathers and

mothers yelling abuse at the

umpires. I think, Tommy, the line

has to be drawn in the sand. I think

you are right. The AFL are doing a

great job with educating the

players. You get penalises with 50 players. You get penalises with 50 metre penalties

metre penalties but you are right about the grassroots stuff, I

about the grassroots stuff, I have done a bit of work for the umpires

and it starts there, the kids do

what they see the stars do. They see

Jonathan Thurston dropping the F

bomb five times then the parents as

well. They have to be aware of

well. They have to be aware of what they are doing. Devil's advocate, at

what point do we draw the line and

say what happens on the field

say what happens on the field stays on the field. Saying the F word five time that

time that actually cost you the game, is anything new for any

footballer. It's a technology that's

new. That's where I think that

people who are directing the

telecasts have got to be a little

bit more discerning in when they see

something like that brewing, now,

that took about a 1.

that took about a 1.5 minutes to

brew into that explosion from thours

tonne because I watched every tonne because I watched every second

of it, it was great theatre by the

way. There is no doubt that you guys

make extremely politically correct

comments. In the heat of battle, I

don't know how you stop a captain having the

having the out bust that he did

have. It cost them the match. They

were out of there. They were going

to score. It's tough to curb your

to score. It's tough to curb your tongue, it's cost sides games in the

AFL. They have come down very hard

to o it. The coach has to say it's

not on. Did you want to scream out a

number of times. Absolutely. You

just know that you get no roult from

it You are never going to achieve

anything from it, this is what I say

to my 16-year-old, you will never

achieve anything back chatting a referee.

the team the game. What I was saying

earlier, most mums and dads, toe the

line. They are great. There is a

great initiative from the AFL. A Wyc

Australian support. They will jab

him up, but what we need him. We

need him. There is no way he won't

play, Harry Kewell will want to be there play, Harry Kewell will want to be

there gee has died for this. This is

everything for him. I think he has learned the less

learned the lesson for the alcohols

he won't want to embarrass himself,

I don't think he will pay at any
