planet - football's World Cup - is

underway in South Africa after a

Johannesburg. Thousands celebrated spectacular opening ceremony in

across the Rainbow Nation. Brad

McEwan is in South Africa and joins

us now. It was an amazing

celebration. I was thinking about

this this morning. It is not just

South Africans that art a South Africans that art a excited.

All Africa, 700 million Africans

are so thrilled that the World Cup

is on their continent. They had a

into the night. We are going to

make history. It will be the

noisiest World Cup in the world.

of his great granddaughter. She was

killed in a car accident the night

before. There was a tragedy in the

Mandela family. But he said. -- the

game. We had Nelson Mandela

we have the soccer. It is not about

winning, it is bringing all the

nations together. Mexico, Mexico!

This is an incredible celebration

of African achievement. The world's

days is on the soccer right now. days is on the soccer right now.

The locals are smiling right back.

They are proud that they have put

this together. Those that could not

get to the opening match, went to

the free fan sites. And then the

moment. South Africa's cause! It

was like an enormous pressure bar

of being released. of being released. Mexico would

equalise, it mattered little. South

Africa has shown that they are

ready to host the World Cup. Just

after the opening ceremony got

under way, there was no-one

Hopefully they will be staying

fishing boat is about to attempt a

I just wanna wrap my arms around

It may be some time before the

Reunion. aptly named French island of La

Reunion. NSW's origin hopes have

been dealt a blow after the shock

departure of star winger Timana

Tahu. Tahu sensationally walked

away from origin camp overnight

after a run in with league legend,

assistant coach, Andrew Johns.

Johns has since apologised for

making offensive comments. But he

won't reveal what he said. I am really upset and I am really upset and shattered

that I have offended T, we go way

back. I've known him since he's

been a kid.

We'll have more on this story a

little later in Sports Tonight. And

a mixed debut for controversial AFL

convert Karmichael Hunt, who kicked

two goals, but injured his

hamstring in his first competitive

Aussie Rules match. Playing in

front of more than 6,000 fans, Hunt

was straight into the action.

was straight into the action.

COMMENTATOR: Running into the opening goal!

But Hunt's afternoon went downhill

from there. Hamstring tightness

forced him from the field during

the third quarter and he didn't return.

Up next, Kevin Rudd suffers yet

another catastrophic setback in the

polls. Plus, a community's push to

save heritage listed fig trees,

turns ugly.

Another major setback for Prime

Minister Kevin Rudd as his

popularity plummets. A highly

respected Labor colleague has gone

in-for-the-kill, claiming the Prime

Minister's doing terminal damage to

our nation.

our nation.

When Kevin Rudd got up this morning,

he may have felt like he was hit by

a bus - Tony Abbott's campaign bus.

It's fantastic to have a mobile

building like this. The Opposition

Leader's touring Queensland - it's

full of marginal seats where the

mining super profit tax is profoundly unpopular.

Mr Rudd can't explain the tax, he

can't defend the tax, it's no can't defend the tax, it's no good

changing the tax, just dump the tax.

A former Queensland Labor Treasurer

and colleague of Mr Rudd's has also

publicly smashed the tax and the Prime Minister.

Keith De Lacy says : Kevin Rudd has

to go. He is doing terminal damage to brand Australia.

He says Labor's risks being out of

power for a generation.

I don't agree with the view that's been expressed

been expressed by Mr De Lacy. And

it's also worth noting Mr De Lacy

is now a coal mining executive.

But the bad news doesn't stop there.

A West Australian opinion poll

shows Labor only occupying 38% of a

2-party preferred vote.

To be fair, the survey sampled less

than half of the usual number of

people for a credible polling

result. But if the poll is accurate result. But if the poll is accurate

it means Labor will be lucky to

hold a single seat in WA after the


I think one of the reasons Mr Rudd

is in so much trouble is because he

has spent more money than he could

afford and he's made promises that he can't keep.

So is the Deputy ready to step up?

You know, I've answered this

question a million times. This

speculation is in my view completely absurd.

completely absurd.

A 15-year-old girl is dead after a

ferocious house fire in Toowoomba.

Seven other people escaped, but two remain in hospital.

A charred, empty shell is all

that's left of the Toowoomba family

home. A mother, father and their

five children escaped the burning

building but a 15-year-old family

friend staying over, was caught inside.


It was about 6:45 an I heard children screaming out the front. Witnesses raised the alarm.

A number of occupants had evacuated

from the house however we did received information that one

person was still inside the house.

Neighbours tried smashing the rear

windows, near the bedrooms where

the girl's body was later found. But not even fire But not even fire crews could reach

her in time. Police say the timbre

house went up in flames in a matter

of minutes. They're still

investigating whether or not the

house had working fire alarms. Family members returned this

morning to collect what could be

salvaged, their grief is unimaginable.

The father, in his thirties and his

16-year-old son are recovering from

smoke inhalation in hospital. Thought it

Thought it was a bit wild, pretty

frightening. Yeah. Nasty business,

because I have grandchildren myself.

The cause of the fire is not yet clear.

And a three year old boy has died

after running on to a road and

being hit by a car on Brisbane's

southside. The accident comes two

weeks after another toddler was killed after wandering into killed after wandering into traffic

in the middle of the night.

A Sydney community has rallied to

save five heritage listed fig trees.

Loppers began removing the 90-year-

old figs this morning from a train

station in Sydney's north. But work

was halted when locals set up camp

and refused to move. Police were

called in, and the women were

threatened with arrest. RailCorp

says the trees are damaging the

platform. They'll be replaced platform. They'll be replaced by

six blue berry ash trees.

Up next: The pope criticised over

his apology to abuse victims.

And entire campsites washed away in

a deadly flash flood.

What should we get Josh? Nothing. He never pays us back. (MUTTERS) He likes burgers, doesn't he? I thought he liked chicken. Hmm. Can I suggest an Ultimate Burger Meal? With your favourite burger and delicious Original Recipe chicken with heaps of tasty sides, KFC's Ultimate Burger Meal. It's all in the box. Great. We'll take four of those, thanks. No, three. Four.

Flash floods have swept away entire

campsites in the American State of

Arkansas, drowning holiday-makers in their sleep.

dozens have been taken to hospital

and at least 30 are still missing.

By daybreak, the nightmare was

evident. Absolute destruction by a

current which levelled the camp

ground. Cabins swept clean of their

foundation, cast forced -- tossed

into houses. Around four am my mum

woke me up. There was water outside

the cabin. I did not believe her at

first. Locals say they have never

seen anything like it. The rain

started Thursday evening with a

powerful storm. At midnight, the normally

normally peaceful township was

swelling with France. I saw a truck

wraparound a tree. That is how

powerful that water was. Officials

fear at least 60 people were washed

away. A reporter on the scene

described the aftermath. We have been flagged

area, trying to find out the latest

word about the campers. For most of

the day the news has not been good.

We're in the process to see if

anyone can be risky. At least 30

people have been rescued but the

rugged beauty which attracted so

many people is now hampering

efforts to save people. efforts to save people.

The Pope has asked for forgiveness

from people abuse by Catholic

priests. He has made similar pleas

before but not in front of

thousands of clergy in St Peter's Square.

Is this plea for forgiveness

sufficient? And would be accepted

by the many distraught big dams of

predatory priests? Pope Benedict

XVI toes and a high-profile

location at a key event to make the

apology. St Peters Square in front

of 15,000 priests. TRANSLATION: He

spoke softly and in Italian,

calling at the abuse of the little ones.

But Britons are already making

clear that such an apology is not

enough. This woman was abused by

nuns and it is action, she says,

that is urgently needed. We all

want closure. We are

day-in and day-out with these

memories of the assaults and rapes

that had taken place from the

Catholic clergy, the religious

orders and others. These words are

wonderful but I hope there is

action behind them. Other critics

will ask whether the Pope is part

of the problem and not the solution.

About 800 workers, cleaning up the
