Tonight, the new rugby league

scandal - Storm star Greg Inglis

charged with assaulting his

girlfriend. Individuals have to be

accountable if they find themselves

in the headlines for the wrong

reasons. Death mystery - more human

remains found in bushland south-

west of Sydney. The remains are

about two or three days old. And

bikie arrests - more murder charges

to be laid over the airport killing.

Good evening. I'm Deborah Knight.

And I'm Bill Woods.

Also, huge cash bonuses for Kyle and Jackie O.

And he's hanging on to the board -

But we begin with the latest

scandal to rock rugby league - the

Storm's poster boy, Greg Inglis,

has been stood down after being

charged with assaulting his

girlfriend, leaving her with two

black eyes. It's left his team in

turmoil just weeks out from the

finals, and the league battling to

restore the already battered

reputation of the game.

Melbourne Storm coaching staff went

to Greg Inglis's home to collect a

suit for him to wear to court.

Inglis, who is one of rugby

league's best players, faces

charges of recklessly causing

injury and unlawful assault

following an alleged attack on

girlfriend Sally Robinson that left

her with two black eyes. Sally's in

good spirits. She's doing as well

as possible for what is obviously a

very testing time for her. Inglis

is an acknowledged match winner who

starred in an NRL ad campaign. Even

though the finals are looming, the

Storm was quick to suspend him

indefinitely once police laid

charges. Any situation that brings

into question the safety and

wellbeing of women is something

that greatly concerns us. His

future will be depend on the

outcome of the court case. The club

is hoping Inglis can play again,

but they're also prepared to sack

him. From time to time we are going

to have young men make mistakes.

This is certainly a big one, but

it's important that it's dealt with

appropriately. That's what we'll be

field. Inglis is the sixth player

charged with assaulting a woman in

the past year - among them, Manly's

assault, and the Sharks' Greg Bird,

sentence. Inglis appears in court

tomorrow. John Hill, Ten News.

Mr Speaker, given the destination,

lunchtime today. It followed an

intensive 48-hour search of the

area using dogs and members of the

riot squad. We think the remains riot squad. We think the remains

are about two or three days old,

and that was at Sunday. That's when

the hunt began. A local called

police after his dog appeared from

the bush carrying human remains.

Their dogs, which roam around a bit,

brought back a body part to them -

a leg. The next thing the place was

covered with police. Officers found

more human tissue on the property,

but say today's find, about a

kilometre away, is the most

significant. Definitely suspicious

circumstances, and that's why we

have an investigation by the

Homicide squad. Locals suspect the

victim may have been murdered,

dismembered and dumped off the

bridge. It doesn't drop into water,

it drops onto rock. There's been a

couple of bodies diposed with over

the years. Police haven't

discovered jewellery or personal

items. They won't comment on the

age or sex of the victim, but have

been asking residents about

children who live in the area. It's

disturbing, because I live around

the corner. It's like Sydney's

dumping ground out there. Investigators say their search

isn't over, and there may be more

body parts they still need to find. Daniel Sutton, Ten News.

And human remains have also been

found at Balmoral, on Sydney's

lower North Shore. Excavators made

the find as they started work on a

beachside restaurant renovation. I

was just digging away, mate, making

Malcolm Turnbull has survived a

party room dressing-down over his

leadership. The Opposition Leader

has failed to win support for his own climate change plan, amid widespread confusion within

Coalition ranks.

A lightning strike plunged

Parliament into darkness,

disrupting the Prime Miister in

full flight. There's more light in

this chamber than has been brought

on climate change for the parties

opposite. Despite Malcolm Turnbull

going on YouTube singing the

praises of a new plan to combat

emissions, the party room did not

endorse it. Veteran Liberal Wilson

Tuckey delivered his assessment of Mr Turnbull's leadership outside

and inside the meeting. A portrait

into categories - inexperience and

arrogance. I will tell him that.

That infuriated other Liberals. I

haven't been listening to Uncle

Arthur for a long time. Front-

bencher Bob Baldwin launched a

scathing rebuttal of Mr Tuckey in

the party room to the applause of

many. Some Liberals are confused

over the direction the party is now

taking. Mr Turnbull is demanding

the Government accept his hybrid

emissions trading scheme even

though he is yet to persuade his

own side to adopt it. It's a game

of political football that has left

key Independent Steve Fielding

fuming at Mr Turnbull's vacillation. fuming at Mr Turnbull's vacillation.

It's absolutely ridiculous. He's

playing politics. This issue is too

big to play politics. While the

protesters were calling for action,

the other key Independent was

promising further delay. If the

Government's scheme were a dog, the

best thing to do would be to put it

down. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News.

of a documentary screened at

Melbourne's International Film

Festival which also outraged the

Chinese. They withdrew their films

and launched a cyber-attack on the

festival website. She is a

separatist trying to split the

Chinese territory, so they should

not be allowed to come here. There

are no plans for either the Prime

Minister or the Foreign Minister to

meet with Rebiya Kadeer during her

visit. Such a meeting would further

complicate the diplomatic dance

being done around Australian Stern

Hu's detention in China. But Ms

Kadeer believes it's time Australia

stood up to China. In their

rhetoric they talk very tough talk,

but in fact when you also stand up

using your trade leverage, they

will come back to you - for sure.

Consumers are starting to hoard

incandescent light bulbs, ahead of

a nation-wide ban in three months.

It's claimed the energy-efficient

alternatives will put Australia

back into the dark ages. Interior designer Camilla Molders

is refusing to make the switch to

energy-efficient light globes. She

is stockpiling old-style

incandescent bulbs as they

disappear off the shop shelves

ahead of a November sales ban. It's

the colour of the white light and

even though there are warm white

globes available, it doesn't have

same feel or look of an

incandescent. Consumers in Europe

and the US are also dissatisfied

with the luminosity of energy

efficient globes and are bulk

buying. I've got a few here to last

me quite a few years. In addition to aesthetic complaints, some

people claim the eco-globes cause

migraines. But disposal is no

longer a headache. This new state- of-the-art recycling technology now

crushes and separates every element

of the bulbs - including toxic

mercury. They can be confident that

it's going to be dealt with in a

responsible manner and with minimum

harm to the environment. But the

Lighting Council says the concerns

over energy-efficient globes have

been blown out of proportion. They

are now available in a variety of

colors and levels of brightness, colors and levels of brightness,

and if you want your light to last,

buy quality. For those refusing to

give up the incandescent glow,

halogens are the way to go. You'll

notice that the internal

componentry is different, otherwise

they are the same warm white color.

Seems changing a light bulb is now

a serious matter.

This week marks the 50th birthday

of one of the world's greatest

inventions. In 1959, Volvo engineer

Nyles Bowlen used a series of

Half a century later, the simple

safety feature is estimated to have

More now on Malcolm Turnbull

surviving a party room dressing-

down over his leadership. Ten's

political editor, Paul Bongiorno,

joins us now from Canberra. Paul,

how did Mr Turnbull go when he how did Mr Turnbull go when he

faced his critics today?

It was described to me as an anti-

climax. Wilson Tuckey was true to

his word and he did deliver a

dressing down to his leader about

being inexperienced and arrogant.

One description was it was more

like a razor than a brand. There

was a much heating it. He did go on

a bit. Another Liberal got up and

gave him both barrels. He let Mr

Tadic know it was not appreciated

that he was attacking the leader in

the public. They got down to

business as usual, when the

National Party joined the Liberal

Party and they talked about

emissions trading. Malcolm Turnbull

thinks and that is about it. Today

is the first time that Parliament

Australia is bucking the trend when

it comes to having babies in the

middle of economic gloom. While the

US has recorded its biggest fall in

births this century, we've decided

there's no better time to breed.

Nicky Stiassny has just boosted

Australia's population by two, and

she's so overjoyed the economy is

the last thing on her mind. It's

definitely something we thought

about and planned. We didn't

necessarily plan for two. She's not

alone - more Aussies than ever are

deciding there's no better time to

expand their family. Every State

and Territory except Victoria has

recorded a significant increase for

2008, with NSW leading the way. In

the last 12 months, it's jumped up

again by 10% and topped 100,000 for

the first time. That's a striking

contrast to other Western countries

since the global recession hit. I

think it's to do with the fact in

the US the downturn has been

stronger and hit earlier. In 2007,

America broke a 50-year record for

births set during the baby boom.

But that came to a grinding halt

last year, with baby numbers

declining by 2%. Australia, on the

other hand, has gone from strength

to strength, jumping 3.3% to its

highest number of births ever.

Sociologists say the baby bonus may

have helped. Others believe when

the time's right, it's right. It's

not all about money. Romance

perhaps, then? Official records

show our burgeoning birth rates

have followed another rite of

passage. We also found a big jump

in marriages in the last 12 months

too. For better or worse. Amber Muir, Ten News.

charges of assaulting his

girlfriend. Club boss Brian Waldron

pondering life without his match-

winner. While the club says Greg

Inglis does have a future in rugby

league, many believe it might not

be in Melbourne. Sometimes people

make mistakes and they pay heavily

for it. People need to understand

the decision we take on this type

of issue is not a football decision,

it is a club decision, there will

consider all stakeholders. Inglis

remains stood down indefinitely. In

our view this would go beyond a 1-

week suspension, but at the moment

that's indefinite and we're

comfortable with that. This year's

other face of rugby league, Brett

Stewart, was handed a 4-match ban

by the NRL for misconduct - the

Eagles are watching Inglis's case

closely. The Melbourne club has

made a stand, if the NRL chooses to,

we ask it to follow consistency.

players they've had to sack,

including Greg Bird for assaulting

his girlfriend. All those blokes

this year, the position and

predicament these blokes are in.

The Storm's first match without

Inglis will be next Monday against

the Melbourne team could mean

they'll really blow out if Inglis

remains sidelined. Greg Inglis has

arrest the run of losses that looks

like costing the Sea Eagles a top-

four spot. The skipper laughing off

his on-field clash with team-mate Anthony Watmough.

A lot of love at Manly training -

Matt Orford and Anthony Watmough

had already kissed and made up

before today's affection. The cause

of their on-field tiff, a very

different kind of passion. Mate,

it's the heat of the battle and

we're both very passionate about

what we do and we both wanted the

boys to get where we were telling

them to go." I'd rather him get

that frustration out. I was just

telling him, "Next tackle - make

sure you rip in". We're all mates,

and what happens out there is good

for the game. The Sea Eagles much

more concerned with the two

straight losses that have left them

in the logjam at the bottom of the

eight. And they've been on the

wrong end of the penalty counts. We

were doing things that we've been

doing for two years and now, all of

a sudden, they're cracking down on

it. I think it showed on the it. I think it showed on the

weekend - our discipline - and just

dropping some balls in crucial

times of the game has let us down times of the game has let us down

and we need to get back to basics.

Giant winger Tony Williams bearing

the brunt of Saturday's loss to

Souths - he's been dropped for this

Roosters. weekend's match against the

Swans coach Paul Roos believes if

Adam Goodes can make the successful

transition to key forward, he will

go down as one of the AFL's best

ever. Goodes will already make a

slice of Aussie rules history on

Saturday night against Geelong when he becomes the second-fastest

player to reach the 250-game

milestone. He's rucked, he's played

in the mid-field, if he were to go

forward and kick a significant

number of goals over the next few

years his legacy would grow even

further, no doubt. The Swans would

give their finals hopes a massive

boost if they were to upset the

Cats at ANZ Stadium.

33-year-old Victorian paceman Dirk

Nannes has been picked to play for

Australia, just two months after he

played for the Netherlands.

Nannes has been selected in a 13-

man squad for Australia's two

announced. Six New South Wales

Australia's embarrassing recent run Australia's embarrassing recent run

in cricket's shorter games has

forced the hand of selectors. For

the first time, separate Twenty20

and one-day squads - both with an

eye on the future. Experimentation

the key word for Twenty20. There

are very few opportunities to look

at international players at this

point of the game. Ricky Ponting

will head home post-Ashes - missing

the Twenty20's and half of the one- day series. Michael Clarke will

captain the sides in Ponting's pre-

arranged absence. He has a very

full period of cricket coming up

with the ICC championship and the

Indian summer. Victorian Dirk

Nannes will create history. His

selection in the Twenty20 team

makes him the first player to

represent two nations in the one represent two nations in the one

calendar year - after lining up for

the Netherlands in June's world championship. Mitchell Johnson has

been picked in both squads -

following his return to form in the

fourth Test victory. He says he can

now cope with the pressure of

expectation. Good news for England

ahead of the must-win fifth Test.

the race will be best remembered

for an almighty prang that caused

the race to be red flagged.

carnage the best was American
