the Saints were very good. NRL minor premiers, St George-Illawarra finished off the regular season in style overnight, comfortably accounting for South Sydney 38-24 at Kogarah Oval. A first-half hat-trick to Ben Creagh snuffed out any hope of the Rabbitohs sneaking into the top eight at Manly's expense. The sellout crowd helped the NRL establish a new season attendance record of more than 3.1 million fans.

Well done! Week one of the finals fires up on Friday night when the Titans host the Warriors. The Tigers battle the Roosters on Saturday, followed by the Panthers against the Raiders.

The Dragons take on Manly on Sunday. Barry Hall will come under scrutiny from the AFL's match review panel today for his stoush with Harry O'Brien in Saturday night's heavy loss to Collingwood. Hall's poor Tribunal record leaves him in real danger of incurring a suspension. The injury-ravaged Western Bulldogs will tackle a Sydney outfit

brimming with confidence on Saturday night at the MCG. The Swans staved off a second-half surge from Carlton at ANZ Stadium yesterday to win a 5-point thriller.

It was a beauty! Defending champion Kim Clijsters has breezed into the US Open quarterfinals this morning with a straight-sets demolition of Ana Ivanovich. Clijsters triumphed 6-2, 6-1 and will meet the winner of today's clash

between Australia's Sam Stosur and Elena Dementieva. Top seed Venus Williams also cruised into the final eight with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Israel's Shahar Peer. Australia has been dumped out of the World Basketball Championships in Turkey by a red-hot Slovenia overnight. The Boomers were never in the hunt,

Here to tell us more is the royal editor from the 'News of the World', Rob Jobson. Good morning. What has the Prince done?

Well, he is going to go on a little

have got a built of sympathy for

him, he is trying to get his message

across and is trying to care about

the environment. People can be so

grumpy. Unless he is on a solar-powered

we are hearing Prince William's

girlfriend, Kate, might have to wait

think there would be a wedding this

living with Prince William in the

he will have to be -- pilot so he

will have to be two weeks on and two

weeks off. So I am sure they will be

able to cope. Sounds like a good

A man has to have a good job. He has

to do well at school so he can get a

good job and support his family. A

woman has to be loving and caring

and good mother and a good wife. That's respected brain surgeon Charlie Teo on last night's edition of 'Sunday Night'. They were speaking to him about what it takes to be a father in 2010. He clearly thinks many dads have it wrong, arguing that they're stepping into traditional female territory.

He also gets quite reasonable at the

end of the interview he said, as a

couple and family you divvy up the

jobs, according to what you are good

at. If you are good at certain

things you should concentrate on

that. That is the most radical

he said but I thought he did get that. That is the most radical thing

more reasonable as it went on. As a

couple you have got to decide what

is best for the family and also for

the kids, whifrb way you go. Forget

your job, the most important

investment you have is your chirp,

bringing up -- your children,

bringing up your kids and giving

them a stable life and it is how you

do that. But there are probably a a

lot of families who are in a

position where dad has a good income

and mum can stay at home innuture

kids. You cannot tell me there are

families who don't want the

flexibility of having one in the

nurturing role. But also you need to

keep the balance. It

keep the balance. Isn't all about

material things and earning a lot of

money or earning as much money as

you can to buy a plasma or take an

overseas trip. But isn't it almost

what he is saying, dads need to be

the bread winner and earn money and

look after everyone? But I think we

have seen a shift in generations to

dads who do try to adjust things to

come home earlier and bath the kids

or make sure they are there to read

a bedtime story whereas a generation

ago they would goat epihome ot7 or 8

o'clock at night? Well, I think the

corporate culture has change. He

admitted he doesn't see his kids

enough and hasn't got the time so he

hasn't got the balance right either.

Rice has since removed the Tweet the comment was idiotic But gay footballer Ian Roberts says and he thinks her sponsors to her. should now question their commitment of her deals? So should she be stripped

Did she say a really dum thing? What

Our reporters on the ground will join us after 7am

and we'll head live to the Weather Channel for what's still ahead. Wild weather is the latest threat to earthquake victims in Christchurch. Now a storm is forecast to hit the quake-ravaged city. For a Monday morning in New Zealand's second largest city, there's no business as usual. Schools are shut and businesses in the CBD are closed. Seven News reporter Robert Ovadia is there. Good morning. Rob, it's the first business day since the quake. With most people still at home

as you can see behind me, this is

the scene at various spots arounds

the CBD in Christchurch, there is no

point coming here because it is too

dangerous. With the wild winds

expected, some facades could fall

down, it is too dangerous. For those

businesses who are structurely

intact there will be no customers to

serve. The city is holding itbreath

to see which buildings are fine and

which aren't. To add to their woes,

bad weather is forecast today. What

are authorities advising people to

do? They just want them to stay

home, it is easier that way. Even

emergency services have to take

emergency services have to take care in the CBD. We are at Darfield, 40

kilometres west of Christchurch,

where the epicentre left, there are

few homes for the people to stay in.

They are staying in evacuation

centres and authorities need space

to do their jobs. We understand some

degree of demolition will happen

today but authorities are still

going from building to building to

building to see what buildings are

sound and which are not. Can you get

your camera to pan around. The

demolition today, gosh, where do you begin to

begin to clean it up? My goodness!

This is the problem, this used to be

For some sufferers, the itching is so relentless they can't even go about their daily lives. But a breakthrough is now providing hope. 20-year-old Genevieve Lin had one of the most severe cases of eczema her dermatologist had ever seen. But after a visit to a medical spa in France she saw some amazing results. Genevieve joins us now with her dermatologist Professor Dedee Murrell. Good morning to you both. Genevieve, tell us how bad was your eczema before you went to France?

It was really bad. I had it all over

my body. I would wear clothes to try

to hide it, it was really itchy and

painful at times and hard to get on

with life, doing normal things. You

poor thing! Dedee, you suggested

Genevieve go to the spa in France.

Tell us why? What did it offer that

you thought could help Genevieve?

When I was lucktureing in Toulouse I

had heard about the spa, but I was

sceptical, but having seen people

with cases of psoriasis and eczema

treatment. What happened? First I

met a doctor and she gave

met a doctor and she gave me a

routine for every day. I would go to

the hydrotherapy centre every day,

for a bath, 20 minutes and sometimes

get a massage and treatments. So

normal bath and a normal massage. A

spa bath which just with the Evian

spring water. So special water? Not

like you could have a bath back here

with the same impact. No, there are

property in the water, they don't

know why it has the effect but yes.

So what can we do at home, anyone

who has eczema who can't travel to

France. Genevieve is keeping her

skin good seven weeks after the

treatment by spraying her skin with

the water, which you can purchase,

which is sterile. She can use the

too. She has been seeing me every

week. She had a score of

twice a day helps, it helps to

rehydrate the skin and seals it with

a moisturiser. Obviously you are advocating the products,

advocating the products, anything you can do without the products?

When your skin has eczema, muit is

like a sieve, with the holes. Yoyou

have got to plug the holes and you

can do it with a bath better than a

Kate Hudson has settled a lawsuit against a company that recently sued her.

This is actually been going on since

2008. A company called 220 Labs had

given her some samples of their

products that contained volic ash

from Vanuatu and you could use it in

your hair. Some time later Kate and

a partner developed their own line

of pair care products that included volcanic ash etc.

This morning on Sunrise, live coverage from the danger spots. Have the Independents finally made up their minds on who should govern Australia? The man who helps the talk show queen keep her life in order. Now see what he can do for you. Right across Australia, this is Sunrise on Seven. Now, live from Brekky Central, here's Kochie and Mel.

Also coming up - Dozens of communities in regional Victoria remain under threat from floodwaters this morning with many swollen rivers yet to reach their peak. Sunrise correspondent Nuala Hafner joins us with more from Benalla. Good morning, Nuala. Which communities are at risk this morning?

Hello, again, look it has just

started to drizzle again now which

is not what

can't take more water and the

Weather Bureau is forecasting more

weather for Wednesday and Thursday.

The river here in Benalla peaked add 1. The river here in Benalla peaked add

1.2 metres but at the moment, the

water is heading down streams. Many

affecting the north, west,

Gippsland, Shepparton, Bairnsdale,

we just heard Wangaratta, 1,000

people have been warned they may

need to evacuate and One Mile Creek,

just near Wangaratta, 60 homes have

been e vocuated. Also Skipton,

people have been evacuated from

in to help with the relief effort in

over the weekend and extra

You have got the clean-up effort in

places like Benalla and places like

Euroa and Creswick where waters have

peaked and also the flood watch with

the sand bagging and evacuation and

people hoping for the best. Some

areas further up have been able to

start cleaning up? Yes, I mean, they

are just really waiting,

particularly if the water to go. It

hasn't gone completely but it has

been declared a catastrophe. They

are expecting the clean-up bill to cost $

has announce said there will be

short term and larger means-tested

We know of 250 homes that are in

that situation but we are expecting

that number to grow today. Thank

you, Nuala. And. And Kochie and Mel will speak to the area's SES commander and the Weather Channel in just a few minutes. We should finally learn today or tomorrow which party will form the next government. Independent MPs Bob Katter, Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott have spent the weekend considering their decisions and are expected to make an announcement soon. Tony Windsor spent the weekend in his electorate. He wasn't giving much away but he did say he backed Labor's broadband policy. Do it once and do it right, and do it with fibre. Labor needs the support of two of the three MPs and is tipped to retain power. There's a disease threat in New Zealand's earthquake-devastated city of Christchurch after sewage contaminated the water supply. Residents are being told to boil drinking water. It's almost impossible to find bottled water on the shelves so farmers have brought in milk tankers carrying thousands of litres of fresh water. There are all sorts of very serious gastroenteritic infections some of them could end up with renal failure or even worse. Schools and businesses in the quake zone remain closed

as engineers work out which buildings are safe. An 11-year-old boy is in hospital after being shot in a duck hunting accident. The boy was flown to Perth last night from Albany in WA's south-east. Police say he was staying with a friend on a property when the boys took a rifle to go hunting. A bullet fired by the friend ricocheted off the water and lodged in the boy's armpit. He was operated on last night and is expected to make a full recovery. A former Pakistan cricketer is claiming a player hid a mobile phone in his helmet while waiting to bat in a recent international match. Mobile phones are banned to stop players talking with match-fixers. It follows another player's claims that almost every match is fixed. WOMAN: Do you think it was a fix? Bracing himself against a barrage of questions, at the Pakistan High Commission, this is the cricketer who was secretly filmed apparently making allegations about match-fixing. According to edited footage released by the 'News of the World', Yasir Hameed, who denies making statements to the paper, seems to tell an undercover reporter that game rigging is widespread.

The reporter asks about Pakistan's tour of Australia. The Pakistan Cricket Board have issued this statement

on behalf of Yasir Hameed - (READS) "I wish to stress, "I have never been approached by the 'News of the World' "and neither did I approach anyone "connected with the 'News of the World' "to disclose any allegations "concerning the Pakistan cricket team or any of the players". The remaining beleaguered Pakistan cricket players tried their best to concentrate on the cricket but the controversy was hanging over Cardiff's Swalec Stadium like a rain cloud.

That is just devastating. Can I say,

as a mummy of a little boy who

starts this weekend, couple of our

cameramen have got sons who love

cricket and play really well.

Cricket is everything and the

players, he worships them and the

bowlers, I think it is so, so sad. I

just think it is really devastating.

Destroying their faith in their

icons. Doesn't it? Did people expect

that of Pakistan though? In the

cricketing circles. Not that wide

spread, thumounts of money and what

is going on and the fact it is

Sydney now, we always suspected but

they got 1.

they got 1.8 million pounds to throw

the Sydney test. The moral of the

story, go home to Nick and say, " story, go home to Nick and say, "Buy

BHP." Time for finance news now. The

pretty good jobs growth figures that

came out on Wall Street. In our

NRL minor premiers St George-Illawarra have geared up for their finals assault by comfortably accounting for South Sydney 38-24 at Kogarah Oval. A first-half hat-trick to Ben Creagh snuffed out any hope of the Rabbitohs sneaking into the top eight at Manly's expense. The sellout crowd helped the NRL establish a new season attendance record of more than 3.1 million fans. Barry Hall will face scrutiny from the AFL's match review panel today for his punch to Harry O'Brien's chest

in Saturday night's heavy loss to Collingwood. Hall's poor Tribunal record leaves him in real danger of copping a suspension. The injury-ravaged Western Bulldogs will tackle a Sydney outfit brimming with confidence on Saturday night at the MCG.

The Swans staved off a second-half surge from Carlton at ANZ Stadium yesterday to win a 5-point thriller. Aussie golfer Jason Day has siezed the outright lead during the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston. Day is 16 under for the tournament, two in front of American Brandt Snedeker. Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy are in the hunt at 12 under after both carded impressive 6-under 65. Tiger Woods showed glimpses of his best on the way to a 2-under-par 69. Our women's rugby side, the Wallaroos, have recorded their best-ever finish at a World Cup this morning.

Well done, girls. Australia thumped France 22-8 at Twickenham Stoop to finish in third place overall. Brilliant! Sunrise weather brought to you by Claratyne. Year-round allergy relief. Be prepared and live Claratyne clear.

Flood warnings continue in certain

areas around Victoria, we will get

the latest in minutes. Of course, the weather remains our major story this morning

as Victoria comes to grips with its worst flooding in 15 years. 250 properties were inundated, prompting hundreds of evacuations. The government has promised emergency assistance and has sent in Defence personnel. While some communities are now switching to clean-up mode, others are bracing.

We are joined by Colin Croxford from the

? We have got reseeing water, it is

going well. We are now inthe

clean-up mode but the water has

passed on from Benalla and is


heading down to nulinga, an area to

Shepparton. We have ice lailted

properties there and in the rural

area. We are trying to get in touch

with the people and get them to

phone in. It would be good. We need

to know how you are and if you need

something, let us

something, let us know. Don't feel

you are isolated there, just give us

a call. Have you got a phone number?

1 3 2 500 and just ask for the

Benalla unit and they will page us

and we will get back to you. Is it

the only way to do it? We had an

e-mail from Kim in Bright in

Victoria and she said it is hard to

get updates on road clocheierss

scand which town -- closures. Vick

Roads have a

Roads have ayish - Vic Roads have a

1 800 number. They have sadedicated

-- dedicated call line they can give

the information outs on. We will get

that and bring it to people shortly.

The clean-up is under way where you

are, they are an awful period to go

through. It takes so long. What

about the risk of disease for

residents? Is it a concern? It is

always a concern, we try to do our

best possible way of dealing with

this. We just urge people to follow

all good hygiene practices. If they

are in a rural area and rely on tank

water, perhaps boil it, don't use

any products that have been

contaminated by flood water. Just do

all good hygiene stuff but yes,

all good hygiene stuff but yes, that is a problem. Okay, Tom,

is a problem. Okay, Tom, Victoria has been battered and bruised by the

weather, when is it all going to

end? Well, thankfully, the

low-pressure system responsible for

all the severe weather for the

south-east of the country this

weekend is heading to New Zealand.

It is good news for Australia but

not Christchurch. They are getting

galeforce north westerly winds this

morning but the rain has eased in

Australia. We have scat frd showers

for Victoria but most less than 5mm

of rain today, nothing compared to

250mm on parts of the ranges on the

weekend. Is it the same weather

pattern that hit New South Wales

with the wild winds is Yes, it

started in South Australia on

Friday, they got hit by torrential

rain and flooding and then to the

eastern states on the weekend,

Melbourne had winds of 120km/h, and

Wallin gaoung. We

Wallin gaoung. We had heavy

flooding, all the way from Tasmania

to Queensland. It is hanging around

in Queensland but will clear

tonight. For Victoria, over the next

week, is there more bad weather

coming across? We can see a couple

of cold front coming up at the

moment? Is it going to be

significant? It is true, there will

be cold front approaching during the

middle of the week. The showers will

clear tonight, tomorrow dry, a front

approaching on Wednesday, showers

for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

in Victoria. But the good news is we

are expecting maybe 5 to 10mm of

rain so nothing like we had on the

weekend. Okay, thank you gentleman,

really appreciate it. That Vic Roads

number is 13 11 70 for road

closures. So for Kim from Bright,

hopefully that helps. The whole country has been waiting and waiting for their decision. But it looks like today could be the day. After more than two weeks in limbo, the three Independents are expected to announce who they'll back. However, one of the main sticking points is now about parliamentary reform. Seven's political reporter, Jodie Speers, is in Canberra. Good morning. This is probably one of the best kept secrets in politics - is there any clue who'll get the nod?

Look you are right, the poker face

is on the three Independents over

the past week or so. Really Hard,

you have to say Julia Gillard is

infavourite. Let's look at the

figures and get a recap. Labor is on

74 seats, that is with the help of

one Greens MP and one Independent,

Andrew Wilkie. The coalition is on

73 seats and then there are the

three Independents, they have

three Independents, they have the power to make or break either side,

Labor needing the support of two

whereas the coalition needs the

support of all three. Hopefully we

will see a decision today but Bob

Katter told us he was changes his

mind every 15 minutes. Tony Windsor

said he wouldn't make a final

decision until he sat down with the

other men, they want to avoid

another poll and don't want a

situation where it is 75-75. Of the

three, can you speculate which way

they will go? We know Tony Abbott

met with Bob Katter but he also met

with a lot of people so it is no

indication there? No, I am not a

betting woman but if I had to put

money on them I would probably go

for Bob Katter going for the

Coalition. He is from north

Queensland and very conservative.

Rob Oakeshott and, going with Labor.

Yesterday he came out strongly in

support of Labor's Broadband policy,

that is where I would put my money

but I wouldn't rule anything out.

Just talk to us about the proposed

changes for parliamentary reform,

the coalition is analysing it, but

run us through the changes and the

impact they could have on us? There

is a whole raft of changes so I

wouldn't want to bore you with them

all but the main are reforms to

question time. Anyone watching

question time over the past couple

of years would see how

of years would see how frustrating it is to see the kids in

kindergarten throw mud and try to

blame the other side for doing it

first. Shorter answers, shorter

questions. They also want to

guarantee the

guarantee the independence of the

speaker. That is a sticking point, the speaker. That is a sticking point,

the Coalition isweried it will be

disadvantaged. They want independent

committees and a budget office,

boost the role of Independents and

also acnudge the country before

prayer, which we see in a lot of

speeches in Canberra, surprising it

hasn't been done yet but that is the

gist of it. Thank you for the

update, we will wait. Time to talk sport. Talking sport. Brought to you by Telstra T-Box Internet entertainment, direct to your TV. The AFL finals certainly started with a bang over the weekend. The Saints sought revenge downing the Cats in a thriller on Friday night. So can Geelong bounce back? Let's ask AFL legend, Tom Harley and Mark Beretta. Good morning. Tom, can the Cats claw their way to a fourth straight grand final?

Very, very fragile, on Friday night,

the Cats, a bad

the Cats, a bad dose of the yips

going into fines. The knifes are

out. Welcome to my world. We should

have had Molly Meldrum. What are

Port doing? Just a week off, a nice

break. Enjoy the holiday. It was a

massive game on Friday night, they

got found wanting in the first half

without a doubt. Conditions between

the first half and second half were

totally different. Really, you can

see this one at it end, the

controversial tackle Cameron Mooney

suffer, caught in the back? What do

you reckon? As you call accurately

earlier in the game no-one would

have batted an eyelid. For the whole

season you have been a protected

species and now you are whingeing. I

just wish the AFL would stop using

umpires. You reckon the Swans

have been a dark horse in

umpires. You reckon the Swans could have been a dark horse in the finals

series. They played well. It

solidified it yesterday. The Swans

were in front with the momentum,

credit to Carlton, Tom you called

the game yesterday, they were right

into it. You would have thought

Sydney didn't have it together and

in them to pull it back and they

did. It is what finals football is

all about. It is why I reckon Sydney

can go on. I I reckon they will get

the Bulldogs and look out. Their

form, is as good as any. You are

right, Beretts, Carlton got to seven

points ahead and Sydney had no run

at all. But at Anic Z Stadium, the

-- the ANZ Stadium, the red and

white army, they live to fight

another day. Big, bad Barry could be

missing next weekend? Shoo the punch

to the chest, there is a bit of grey

area between the neck and the

midchest, a bit of grey area, so

they are certainly in trouble. Beretts, in Rugby League, St George cruised to another victory yesterday.

They rested four or five play snrz

Yes, they are looking good. The

bookies have posted them as run away

favourites to win. It is the Dragons

to lose at this stage of the

competition. They are in red-hot

form, Wayne Bennett is a maestro.

They are it the team to beat, but

keep an eye on the Titans. How much

do you reckon last year's finals

series plays over ST George? Very

much so, they know it is their

golden chance. Dragons

golden chance. Drag fans

golden chance. Drag fans have suffered a lot. Let's focus on new

allegations Pakistan made $

allegations Pakistan made $3 million

from rigging the Sydney cricket

test. Is it getting way out of

control? Is this beyond belief of

what anyone even suspected? I I I

reckon it is staggering. It is at

that stage you read something knew

and you can't believe it. We

suspected something was going on in

the Sydney test but not this proportion. $

proportion. $3 million Australian is

pocketed by the Pakistani players.

Is it because you can bet on so

much. It is the one sport you can

control the owcome. Like Mel's

comments, it is going to rip the

heart out of the game. You can't

tolerate a team like Pakistan coming

through, story after story after

scandal after scandal am. It is so

ingrained in the culture, I was

talking to Ian Healy, they were

going through the same thing ten or

20 years ago. Good to see you. Coming up - how Stephanie Rice managed to offside the gay community. We'll show you her offensive Tweet.

I cannot believe that! But right now it's time for the news,

here's Nat with the 7:30 update. Residents from 60 homes in the Victorian town of Wangaratta have been evacuated this morning as the state's flood crisis deepens. Torrential rain has caused devastation to the north-eastern region and floodwaters are now flowing downstream to Shepparton, Nagambie, Seymour, Charlton and Horsham and Ballarat. The State Emergency Service says disease is a risk as the floodwaters recede. If they are in the rural area and rely on tank water and that, it may be possible to boil the water, don't use any products

that have been contaminated by floodwater. The damage bill is expected to reach into the millions of dollars.
