To sports news now with Mark Beretta. Sydney's Barry Hall will find out today if he will be free to play in Saturday's grand final

against West Coast. The AFL's match review panel will decide whether the forward should be charged for punching St Kilda's Matt Maguire in the stomach during the first quarter of Friday's preliminary final. West Coast defender Travis Gaspar could also be charged for making contact with the head of Adelaide's Ken McGregor before the opening bounce of their clash on Saturday. Wests Tigers' coach Tim Sheens says his side will be the underdog heading into Saturday's elimination final against St George Illawarra. The side spent the night celebrating its 28-point win over Brisbane with hundreds of fans, but half-back Scott Prince knows the job is far from done. Enjoy the moment but don't get too carried away because there's two weeks left. North Queensland will play Parramatta for the other grand final berth.

Michael Owen has scored his first goal as a Newcastle player in the English Premier League. Overnight, Liverpool played out an entertaining draw against Manchester United. Bolton beat Man City. Wigan drew with Middlesbrough while Newcastle finally gave while Newcastle finally gave its fans something to smile about. Alan Shearer scored from a free kick to give the Magpies their first goal in the 63rd minute. Four minutes later Michael Owen made it 2-0 with a superb header. Charles N'Zogbia then sealed Newcastle's first win of the season.

New Zealand golfer Michael Campbell has won has won the World Match Play Championship.

The US Open champion beat Irishman Paul McGinley 2 and 1 to take out the 36-hole final at England's famous Wentworth west course. He also takes home $2.41 million in prize money.

That is not a bad weekend. There

you go.

Good going.

Grant is in the plaza this morning

and he has some good friends with him Talking my own language this

morning. I think it takes a special

breed to be considered a genuine

ute driver. The ute which is an

Australian iconic heartbeat of this

nation is the vehicle they call the

ute and it is about to ute and it is about to be celebrate

in some serious style in two weeks

at the October long weekend at the

ute mustster. 4012 utes for having

the most utes in one location and

it is on in a couple of weeks time.

How much do you love utes, Mick?

You are a typical guy who goes You are a typical guy who goes

It is the culture, the atmosphere,

you are trying do them a bit better

than the next guy and individually

make yours sperbal. We spend a lot

of time and money which the fiancee

doesn't like too much build these

things just to the keep them with

what what we are happy with them

So the girl takes a back seat to

the ute?

Yes, when she had her own she used to build

to build it but now she doesn't

have one, she has a family planner

so it is a different story. It is

good. We love going together and it

is a great way to catch up with great mates

What are the tools of the trade?

Biggest bullbar you can get t

biggest aerials, the most lights

you can pack on a ute, the most

stickers and the loudest whip crack

exhaust and basically yeah,

everything that you can pack on to

a ute that is what we love doing

We will give you your check list in another half hour. A strong front will approach south-west WA late today bringing showers and winds. Meanwhile, a weaker front over the south-east will bring scattered showers to Victoria and Tasmania. Expect isolated showers and possible storms on the New South Wales ranges.

The two-day outlook. Mostly fine in Brisbane and Hobart. Just the chance of a shower in Sydney and Canberra. Mainly dry in Melbourne. Showers for Adelaide on Wednesday. Showers, even thunder for Perth.

Not only are they go for the most A

uetsd in the one location but the

most A blue singlets as well.

Thank you grant v to be there I think. Ahead this morning, is it safe to dive on the Great Barrier Reef? The industry will defend its record.

But next, how did triple points affect our footy tips? double points All will be revealed the other side of the break.

Sunrise is powered by Dell. Buy online and receive an additional $100 off selected Dell desktops and notebooks. The AFL grand final will be contested between Sydney and the West Coast Eagles, but both teams could have players missing

through injury and suspension. All the talk over the weekend centred on Barry Hall and if he should be ruled out of the biggest game of the year. Our Mark Beretta, and Greg Cary from Radio 4BC in Brisbane, have seen the incident. Good morning to you both. Mark, does Barry Hall deserve to miss the grand final?

That is the key word Kochie, does

he deserve to miss the grand final. No He

He has been clean for years, hasn't he?

Yes, three years. There are all

sorts of different ways to look at

the incident. All over the weekend

every AFL expert has a different

view and what the outcome might be

We have just seen him rubbing his

stomach but that footage shows the

other bloke was holding him back.

Look at him. Barry is just saying "Keep

"Keep away"

He was certainly proceed vobgd and

Rugby League, Can the Cowboys go all the way?

If they just power up again Parramatta

I don't think they'll win but they could.

As we saw with the Broncos

yesterday, very sad departure

What about those Tigers, Greg, the dream continues?

Yeah, what a fantastic - well, they

the Cowboys of last year playing

the same kind of football maybe even better and if

even better and if anyone is saying

the Tigers can't beat St George

next week have not been watching -

they are terrific. Look at the way

they hung in there. The Broncos had

enough line breaks to win three

games but they didn't convert t

tigers showed great patience for

inexperienced players and came back

in the second half

But the Tigers stars, Ben marshal

has so much energy

has so much energy and excitement

and enthusiasm and so much skill at

the moment. They look fantastic

It is beautiful. All the short

passes near the ruck and the fast

players, we had Scotty Prince, they

are exciting.

The tips for the weekend. Didn't

you guys get any?

How long have you been waiting to say

say that?

Not a one, well...

Hats off to Beretta. Let's look at

the leaderboard then because that

is all that matters really

That is not the right leaderboard Yes it is!

No, I think - there we go, the

triple point leaderboard! No

That looks a bit better

Maybes a lot of difference

That is how we wanted it, Greg, isn't it? Is

isn't it? Is it 10 for the grand

final

No, ites ska late every week

Let's look at the numbers.

Greg, we will catch you Friday for

grand final week in the AFL. Bring it on. Later this morning, the man who has killed almost 16,000 crocodiles. Mick Pittman is now off to Hollywood. But next, what is on your mind Australia? The Soapbox is open for another week.

We will look at the issue of older

women younger men, is there still a

stigma. An SMS saying my mum is 45

with three sons, her boyfriend is

32 and she hasn't been in as good a

relationship for years and we

continue be happier. Deb

Deb says slice 44 her man is 35,

everyone things I'm mad but that is

only because he is a bomb and a

used car salesman. He loves her kids

Maureen loves her football and says

Barry should not be suspended as

mat McGuire did an Academy Award

winning performance

Carmen says Barry Hall should be

suspended, he knows the rules and

suspended, he knows the rules and

what was up for grabs, go Eagles.

Well Carmen I think...

We have to be sensible here. If we

were not playing for a spot in the

grand final would you feel differently?

Definitely not

If this was early on in the seeson...

Definitely not, Beretts?

No, but you have to take into

account the gravity of the

situation. This is a real once-in

situation. This is a real once-in

a-lifetime opportunity. Let's put

it to a phone poll. What do you

think, let's open a phone poll on

the Barry Hall incident - should he

be suspended or not,...

Send your message to the AFL.

If Barry should not be suspended...

When do we find out?

At the end of the show. No phone

lines will be open today

If he is suspended or not? They

will look tat videotape this

morning and about lunchtime they

will put out the charge

Who are the faceless

Who are the faceless men making this decision

Peter Schwabb was suspended and

Stewart Lowe former team-mate of

Barry Hall so they are the men. Coming up, the crisis for Australia's IVF program. But next, news, sport and weather together. You're watching Sunrise across Australia.

News time with Natalie Barr. Good morning, everyone. Melbourne police are hunting for a 35-year-old man

over a fatal shooting in the city's east.

They say an argument broke out among a group of men late yesterday in Ringwood East. Shortly afterwards, a 47-year-old man was found lying on the road with two gunshot wounds to his upper body. He later died in hospital. They are appealing for the 35-year-old,

who is believed to have been at the scene, to come forward. Australia may send an extra 200 troops to Afghanistan

as early as next year. Defence Minister Robert Hill says Britain and NATO have requested the extra troops as part of an international effort to improve security in the country. The soldiers will be in addition to 190 SAS troops sent earlier this month. The Nationals say they will maintain the pressure on the Federal Government

over voluntary student union fees. The party will campaign for cash compensation

for universities that stand to lose out voluntary student payment proposals. because of the new voluntary student payment proposals. Compulsory union fees currently fund university sporting and extra curricular facilities, but under new legislation the government plans to introduce a user-pays system. Mark Latham's controversial personal diaries will hit book stores today two days ahead of schedule.

The former Labor leader's scathing criticism of the party and in particular Kim Beazley have attracted widespread media attention, behind their leader, but Labor MPs are rallying behind their leader, accusing Mr Latham of being bitter. The book's publisher says Mr Latham is happy with the response so far and hopes to sell more than 75,000 hard copies.

There could be some relief in sight

after weeks of spiralling petrol prices. The world's leading oil-producing nations are holding a crisis meeting today. OPEC members are expected to agree to an increase in oil production ending the squeeze at the bowser. Analysts say prices could start falling this week. The official death toll from Hurricane Katrina is nearing 900

as authorities continue the massive clean-up across New Orleans and Mississippi. The New Orleans mayor is under fire for encouraging people to return to the devastated city.

Federal authorities say the city is not safe to live in, lacks basic facilities and is a major disease threat. Thousands of people have been returning since evacuation orders were lifted last week.

Both parties are claiming victory after a cliffhanger election in Germany. The preliminary count shows Christian Democrats leader Angela Merkel has won the same number of seats as Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder. Despite not having a clear majority, the contender claimed victory within one hour of the polls closing, but Germany's chancellor is refusing to concede defeat. The formal results are expected later this morning.

Anti-fur protesters have stolen the show at the start of London fashion week Three animal rights campaigners burst onto the catwalk during a show by designer Julien Macdonald who has used fur in previous collections. The fashion designer laughed off the interruption saying there were more important things to worry about in the world.

Checking sports news now with Mark Beretta. The Eagles have two key players battling injuries ahead of Saturday's grand final against Sydney. Midfielder Michael Braun has a knee injury but his team-mates are confident he will be fit to play. Forward Phil Matera has a groin strain. West Coast will also keep a close eye on the findings of the match review panel today. Defender Travis Gaspar could be charged after he made contact to the head of Adelaide's Ken McGregor.

Sydney forward Barry Hall is in danger of missing the final after he punched St Kilda's Matt Maguire in the stomach during Friday's clash. Rugby League and Wests Tigers' coach Tim Sheens

has played down his team's chances of making the grand final. The Tigers take on the Dragons this weekend for a spot in the decider after they beat the Broncos at Aussie Stadium yesterday. Manchester United captain Roy Keane is likely to be out for two months

after breaking a bone in his left foot during the Red Devils 0-0 draw with Liverpool. In other overnight action from the English Premier League - Premiership newcomers Wigan held Mark Viduka's Middlesbrough to a draw, while Newcastle scored its first win of the season. Valentino Rossi will have to keep the champagne on ice for at least another week. The Italian needed to finish in the top two at the Japanese Grand Prix

to wrap up his fifth consecutive MotoGP title

but crashed out halfway through the race. NZ golfer Michael Campbell's superb year on the fairways has continued. The US Open champion is now $2.41 million richer after winning the World Match Play Championship.

He beat Irishman Paul McGinley 2 and 1 in this morning's final round.

Welcome back to Sunrise. Let's check the newspapers from around the country. Melbourne's Age says about 900 asylum detainees have tried to harm themselves while in immigration detention in Australia. The paper has a photo of Melburnians queing for AFL tickets.

The Australian continues the Aussie Rules theme asking the question "Should Hall Play?" And it has a photo of Eagle Ben Cousins, a favourite for tonight's Brownlow Medal.

The paper also reports Kim Beazley's daughters have launched a defence of their father following the criticisms of Mark Latham.

The Herald Sun's back page headlines "Dukes of Hazard". Gehrig says Hall is gone, but others aren't so sure. Malcolm Blight reckons he shouldn't

go, there was tpwhoing in it.

We will talk about it throughout

the morning. Let us know what you

think. That is what This juicy gossip brought to you by V8 Fruit and Veg -

a great start to every day. In Hollywood we don't often hear

about ex-flames getting along with current boyfriends, but Brad Pitt seems to have made an unlikely new friend. Nelson Aspen has more. Good morning, Nelson. Who has he made friends with?

Isn't this nice? Following in the

Isn't this nice? Following in the

footsteps of Bruce willies and

Ashton crutcher Brad is making

friends with Billy Bob Thornton. In

fact Billy Bob has been cast in a

movie in which Brad is acting as

one of the produce ergs. Peace like

a River. These guys have the same

sense of humour if not the same

taste in women and a sort of spy on

the production office says that

when Brad needs to get

when Brad needs to get Billy Bob on

the phone he says "Get me my old

lady's old man on the phone" so how

nice that they are all getting along

Also Brad has just applied to his

pilot's licence so maybe he can be

flying around with Billy Bob and

they can be real mates That is lovely

It is nice. Of course it is a pig

day in Hollywood the Emmy awards

due to start in just a couple of hours. What are the

hours. What are the predictions, Nelson?

Well, my predictions are that the

Swans will do to the Eagles this

weekend what they did to St Kilda

last weekend but you are talking

about the Emmys, so literally they

just rolled out the red carpet

moments ago. They are on Hollywood

boulevard so everybody is getting in the mood.

That is a tough one to pick

Tpwefry rush was brilliant add

Peter Sellers. We look forward to...

He was funny with the calendar year,

it seems like it was ages ago but

one more chance

We look forward to the wash-up

tomorrow and the fashions. I went

to see the best and worst dressed

that is the fun bit, seeing what they wear

they wear

Coming off Hurricane Katrina we can

expect a lot of nostalgia and a lot

of more serious sombre moments so I

will anticipate it will be a

conservative night but you never

know, hopefully there will be some

surprises.

We will catch you after 8.30. Later this Sunrise, Monique returns with her Everyday People. It is something we have all been looking forward to. And after 7.00, why New Zealand's election result is so important to us.

We will hear from the Queensland dive industry. Also coming up, has model Kate Moss blown her career?

Those photos of her using drugs are fairly unimpressive. We'll cross to our man in London. And a little later, the return of Monique's Everyday People Series. She just walks up to people in the street and discovers their remarkable life stories. But first, here's Nat with our 7am news.

Good morning, everyone.

It was a grim weekend on the east coast with police investigating a spate of suspicious deaths. Melbourne police are looking for a 35-year-old man

in connection with a fatal shooting. A 47-year-old man died from gunshot wounds after an altercation in the city's east. This suburban street in Melbourne's outer-east became a crime scene last night after a fatal shooting. Police say

a group of men started arguing outside a home in Ringwood East at about 4.30pm. Shortly afterwards, a 47-year-old man was found lying on the road with two gunshot wounds in his upper body.

He later died in hospital. Investigators are appealing for a 35-year-old man who was at the scene during the shooting to contact them. In Queensland, a 67-year-old man will appear in court today charged with the murder of a woman on the Sunshine Coast.

The body of the 68-year-old woman was found in a home at Pelican Waters. In Brisbane, a 41-year-old woman has been charged with murdering a five-year-old girl at a home in Eagleby. Police received a triple-0 call from the house. They have not confirmed whether the woman is the girl's mother. And in Sydney, an experiment with laughing gas is being blamed for killing a man and putting two others and a woman in hospital.

The four, aged in their 20s and 30s, were found unconscious in a car outside a home in Toongabbie in Sydney's west yesterday morning. News Limited newspapers say the group had been inhaling nitrous oxide. A one metre-long gas tank was removed from the car for testing. Doctors have warned that Australians will continue to die unnecessarily in hospital if the government does not take action.

In a damning report published in The Medical Journal of Australia, safety experts have accused the Federal and State Governments of ignoring fatal flaws in the system. They want a national strategy to deal with medical error to register mistakes. and a data network a final act of defiance Unions are planing a final act of defiance against the Howard Government's plans to avoid future national wage cases.

The ACTU will launch a wage claim under existing federal laws next week in a last-ditch effort to help 1.6 million low-income earners. They hope protect minimum earners and avoid an 18-month wage freeze as new IR reforms come into effect, but the government says the new system should be in effect next year making any hearings irrelevant.

Four people have died during England's biggest race, the Great North Run.

They were among 47,000 athletes who took part in the half marathon, running from Newcastle to South Shields. It is believed unusually high autumn temperatures caused the runners to collapse.

The polls have closed in Afghanistan's historic democratic elections four years after the fall of the Taliban.

Across the country, there were 2,700 candidates to choose from including many women contenders. More than 12 million Afghanis braved threats of terrorist attacks to cast their votes. They have a vision and they have voted for that vision. In spite of terrorism, in spite of the threats, they went and voted. The final result is not expected for three weeks. Checking finance news.

To sports news now with Mark Beretta. One of Sydney's best has a nervous day ahead of him. Sydney's Barry Hall will find out today if he will be free to play in Saturday's grand final

against West Coast. The AFL's match review panel

will decide whether the forward should be charged for punching St Kilda's Matt Maguire in the stomach during the first quarter of Friday's preliminary final. West Coast defender Travis Gaspar could also be charged for making contact with the head of Adelaide's Ken McGregor before the opening bounce of their clash on Saturday. Wests Tigers' coach Tim Sheens says his side will be the underdog heading into Saturday's elimination final against St George Illawarra.

The side spent the night celebrating its 28-point win over Brisbane with hundreds of fans, but half-back Scott Prince knows the job is far from done.

Enjoy the moment and don't get too carried away because there's obviously two weeks left.

North Queensland will play Parramatta for the other grand final berth. Michael Owen has scored his first goal as a Newcastle player in the English Premier League.

Overnight, Liverpool played out an entertaining draw against Manchester United. Bolton beat Manchester City. Wigan drew with Middlesbrough while Newcastle finally gave its fans something to smile about. Alan Shearer scored from a free kick to give the Magpies their first goal in the 63rd minute. Four minutes later Michael Owen made it 2-0 with a superb header. Charles N'Zogbia then sealed Newcastle's first win of the season.

New Zealand golfer Michael Campbell the World Match Play Championship. has won the World Match Play Championship. The US Open champion beat Irishman Paul McGinley 2 and 1 to take out the 36-hole final at England's famous Wentworth west course. He also takes home $2.41 million in prize money. No rest for our cricketers. Tomorrow, Cricket Australia will announce the teams for the Johnnie Walker Super Series. The first one-day match is on 5 October in Melbourne.

So there you go.

Let's get serious about it. Free

Barry Monday, ladies and gentlemen,

Barry Hall should not be outed for

the grand final. Beretts, wear it

with pride

Thank you Kochie

Brad says Jason Cloke and Rocca in

2003 neither deserved to miss a grand

grand final, if Gehrig got a week

Barry Hall should be suspended

grand final or not

If the AFL rub his out they run the

risk of being guilty of a

conspiracy against the Swans winning

the grand final. Two weeks ago

they lost on what... Questionable umpiring decisions

A week ago they beat Geelong after

A week ago they beat Geelong after

Geelong requested

The sprinklers be turned on

And were the Swans consulted? No

At three-quarter time on Saturday

what was...

The free kick count - I reckon it

was 18 to 9. Twice as many free kicks

And ...

Did Barry Hall swing a punch?

No, he was just sticking his arm out With his

With his fist

Let's get Dr Karl on there because

the St Kilda bloke was running by

and caught it

Let's get Dr Karl to the defence of Barry Hall

Free Barry Monday, Grant is out

tonne plaza today and he has a

weather on this Free Barry Monday

A couple of blokes might be able to

help us with their cause. You have

to love a bullbar

to love a bullbar that could nudge

Ayres Rock out of the way and

headlights that would hurt Stevey

Wobder's eyes. Lee Kernihan is one

of the star performers at the ute

muster in Dennie as we look at the forecast. A strong front will approach south-west WA late today bringing showers and winds. Meanwhile, a weaker front over the south-east

will bring scattered showers to Victoria and Tasmania. Expect isolated showers and possible storms

on the New South Wales ranges. The two-day outlook. Mostly fine in Brisbane and Hobart. Just the chance of a shower in Sydney and Canberra. Mainly dry in Melbourne.

Showers for Adelaide on Wednesday.

Showers, even thunder for Perth.

There is your latest weather

forecast from out on the plaza Talk to you soon. Imagine spending six hours lost at sea, not in a boat, but in the water. It happened to two British tourists on the weekend, diving on Queensland's Great Barrier Reef. It was a chilling reminder of the Lonergan case seven years ago. The American couple was left behind after diving near Port Douglas

and was never heard from again. A meeting will be held today to discuss dive safety. Col McKenzie represents Queensland's diving industry. Col joins us this morning. Just how lucky was this British couple?

Exceptionally lucky. If they had

not have been found when they were

found and had gone any further away

from the dive

from the dive site, then quite

possibly it wouldn't have been such

a wonderful outcome

So tell us what went wrong because

we are talking here about a very

popular busy dive spot, aren't we?

Yes, it is an excellent dive site

and it is absolutely magnificent to

be in the water on that location.

However, the divers themselves were

advanced qualified diveers and they

were asked if they wanted a

were asked if they wanted a guide

to the site and they declined and

then they went off on their own and unfortunately they surfaced out

behind the boat a fair distance out

from the reef in current and that

current swept them away T other

compounding factor was the fact

that there was - where they

surfaced was directly in to the sun

and they couldn't be seen easily by

the boat and the boat didn't see them

Did the boat leave?. No, the

Did the boat leave?. No, the boat

didn't leave. There have been

stories it did, but it did not. It

did its head count, realised they

were missing two people, knew

exactly which people they were and

from that point in time within 30

minutes they had alerted the

national search centre and a

full-on air-sea rescue search was

iplt meanted So all

So all the safety measures brought

in post the Lonegran tragedy are

you saying all systems went

according to plan?

Yes this is a great example of

where it went to plan. The

Lonegrans were missed win 48 hours

but these were missed win 30

minutes

You believe the safety standards

are working and this is a case in point?

Yes, Queensland has the best safety

record of any diving industry

anywhere in the world. In fact we

are world leaders without a doubt

That is a pretty impressive call.

How come? Is it just we work so

hard at is or post Lonegrans we had

such a rude shock?

We started to look at how to

improve the city and the Queensland

government has been very pro-active

but the Lonegrans was a big wake up

call and we have instancety

debateed things toss try to avoid

that from happening again. There is

one fatality in driving for about

every 100,000 dives and in

Queensland we have one fatality for

every 450,000 dives which makes it

four and a half times to dive

four and a half times to dive in

Queensland than anywhere else in

the world. We don't want to look at

it from a statistical point of view,

everyone we need to prevent we will.

In this case it is hard to blame

the operator at all. The divers

were well qualified certified

diveers that unfortunately must

have got a little bit disoriented

underwater and I is hard to apportion

apportion blame anywhere other than

where their own in-water diving

practice

Good to hear it all went according

to plan and the people are safe and

well. Thank you for joining us this morning. Thank you.

What a result in the New Zealand election. Just one seat divides the major parties, meaning both sides need to negotiate with the minor parties to form government. So what on earth happened to Helen Clark's Labour Party and what does it mean for us? Our foreign affairs editor Dr Keith Suter is here.

Good morning to you. Did anyone expect it to be this close?

Why was it so very close, was that expected?

Yes, we knew it would be a close

election. This is possibly if Helen

Clark gets elected the third time

that a labour leader will have been

re-elected on three consecutive

occasions since the World War II so

she was trying for a very hard

she was trying for a very hard act

to the do it but it may well be

that she has that sort of

breakthrough and also the New

Zealand electoral system very

different from Australia's system,

does reflect the views of the

electorate and so if the electorate

itself is divide then you will see

that reflected in the composition of the Parliament

Not to be rude and I don't mean to

be, why should we care as

Australians what happens in

Australians what happens in New Zealand?

It is a major partner for us. There

are more New Zealanders living in

Australia than there are aboriginal

people living in Australia. So we

are seen - we don't look upon New

Zealand with any great interest as

reflected in your question because

we look towards the US but if you

are in New Zealand you are always

looking at Australia so in a sense

we are the Big Brother of the New Zealanders and of course New

Zealanders and of course New

Zealand is our major defence alley

and of course 20 years ago New

Zealand decided not to be so

sympathetic to Americans over the

nuclear issue and so they have been

excluded from much of that defence

cooperation. So there is on the one

hand a long military tradition

which in the last which in the last 20

which in the last 20 years has been

receiveerd so you have two Prime

Ministers who look tat world somewhat

somewhat differently. For example,

New Zealand has not been involved

in the initial attack on Iraq two

years ago. Australia went down that route but the New Zealand

government said no. There are some interesting tensions between

Australia and news

Before we end up, if make up of

some of the minor parties. The

National Party has come close and

played the race card

Dr Brash the new leader, formally

the central banker of news

the central banker of news is an

economic rationalist and he has

been pushing two things - the

reduction of taxation and the

reduction of the special privileges

for Maoris in New Zealand because

they are guaranteed a certain

number of seats and he has been

perceived as racist. He would deny

that but that is how he has been

perceived by some people so he has

to find a way of eroding the Prime

Minister's standing because the

Minister's standing because the

economy is actually doing quite

well so he can't attack it directly

tonne basis of the economy so he

has gone for the issue of

immigration, taxation and he is

also saying he will weaken New

Zealand's stands on the nuclear issue

Just before we go, question without

notice, the other big election

overnight, Afghanistan's first

election since the downfall of the

Taliban four years ago. How critical is

critical is that to bringing peace

to that country?

Very critical and the election has

gone extremely well. We were

fearing the Taliban were going to

do all sorts of things toss disrupt

the elections. Very little of that

actually took place and in the

northern part of the country hardly

any violence at all. It will take

until the middle of next month

before we get the results. A large

number of people denying the

threats and going ahead and voting

nonetheless so a great

nonetheless so a great achievement

Keith thank you for joining us. Talk to you soon. Supermodel Kate Moss is used to the spotlight but her latest antics are attracting the wrong kind of publicity.

These photos from New Idea show her appearing to use cocaine. The scandal has put her million-dollar fashion contracts in jeopardy. Although she has apologised, what does it mean for her reputation in the UK? It is over to our man in London, It is over to our man in London, Jono Coleman. Good morning. Jono, just how big is Moss in the UK?

She is a huge personality. She is

almost as big as the Sydney Swans

are in Sydney I would say in the UK

and I guess you guys can identify with that

That puts it in to perspective for

us. Tell us about her future

career-wise, I know she is a spokes

model for a few big fashion houses,

Dior and Burberry, have any of them dropped her?

No, because the other day she

apologised to H and M one of the

big High Street chains, a big like

David Jones in Australian standards.

She is the face of Stella McCartney

and they are launching a great big

range in November for H and

range in November for H and M

stores around the UK, Rimmel, Dior

and they have a range of per fume

called Addict so that is not

fantastic for Kate Moss but she is

all the papers today. There are the

Sunday papers, the Mail and all the

big once, the wrood of broad sheet

papers, she is everywhere so this

story will not go away and Linda

story will not go away and Linda

Evangilstalaunched Fashion Week so

there was a huge A paparazzi and

all the press and Kate Moss will be

involved in London Fashion Week and

they are a protest about fur being

murder so there will be a lot of

this Kate Moss stuff continuing

but so far she has apologised to

but so far she has apologised to

one but all the others have said no

comment, we will give her another

chance, we will see what happens so

it is hard to say. She is a very,

very wealthy lady so lit not

affected her that much

And a mum, which is not a great

look. But she wently won a court

case against a magazine for making similar claims

In a lot of the Sunday papers today

her lawyers are saying if you print

this story and if

this story and if this story

continue we will sue you over

defamation so she is a very

pro-active person when it comes to

legal action. Also a lot of the

papers are saying her 3-year-old

daughter and the father Jefferson

Hack are thinking about taking

action to maybe remove the child

from her at this stage and she has

been to the clinic before, she is

also involved in trying to get her boyfriend off

boyfriend off drugs so it is not

exactly a good look for London

Fashion Week and Kate Moss the

person adds Lila her 3-year-old daughter

happens. Talk to you soon. Monique Wright is back on the streets. Coming up, the story of Eva. She was simply someone Monique approached but as you will see it again proves that everyone has a story.

I was excited about the accommodation.

Just checking the voting on our phone poll. We are asking - Should Barry Hall be suspended? Currently, 56% think Baz should escape punishment. That is from nearly 900 calls.

Excuse me, phone poll for bar

yirbgs what about the phone poll

for Travis Gasper the West Coast

Eagle involved in a timely little incident?

An elbow to the head!

Don't show it again

That is a disgrace

That is terrible

He should get rubbed out for five weeks

He says "There is nothing in it"

Nothing in it? McGregor just slipped

An elbow to the head?

If it hurt any more he would have

grabbed his head and fallen to ground

Is magreing your's head attached,

do you know?

It was a bit high admittedly but

doing those before-game stretches I don't think so!

That is a well-known stretch that you

you do before the game.

David says Barry should get a

yellow card for the act and the

other should get a red card for

very bad acting. Steve says the guy

punched in the AFL fame would have

hurt himself when he hit the ground

than the tap he got from the other

guy. Libby says he should be

suspended because it is deliberate

if he gets away

if he gets away it is another

example of New South Wales and

Queensland getting preferential

treatment from the AFL

What was the count at three-quarter

time? Who requested that the ground

be soaked the previous weekend at

the SCG? Geelong or were the Swans

consulted? No. Who lost to the West

Coast Eagles the week before on a

poor umpiring treatment.

poor umpiring treatment. Let's not

talk about preferential treatment.

Rodney says I wonder what you would

say if Sydney were playing Port

Adelaide this weekend.

and saying how long Parry haul

should be suspended for? Get a grip

Nick said how many teams have you

gone for this seeson?

gone for this seeson?

Go with the winners, is that right?

No, you have to support a team all

the way through

If it is not your team you jump on

board someone else's

Keith says do AFL players have to

go to act tinge school so they can

take dives to attract attention?

You just have to touch them and

down they go in 80% of incident

Let us know. It will be a big week. We

We are also talking about 8.15

older women, younger men. Is this

still a stigma, what about...

Why does the camera keep coming on

me when they say older women?

Because Andrew is 19

Sorry, my hair keeps going a bit

funny behind that thing. No, he is

actually older than me by a month. Sure!

Sure!

That is not what they all say. Goal

is 25 her husband is 11 years

younger, I continue find a better

husband or a man to spend my life with

What attracts you to younger men,

their maturity, their intellect,

their experience, what is it?

Diane is 59, her husband is 47 and

they have been together for 21

they have been together for 21

years. My husband is older as well,

ask Diane and all these other women

You women seem to be in favour of

it. Shortly on the show, the return of one of our most popular segments. Monique Wright is back on the streets, meeting her everyday people. Then the bloke who wrestles crocodiles with his bare hands. But right now, someone else known to to that, here's Nat with the 7.30 news. Good morning, everyone. A 41-year-old woman will appear in court today

charged with the murder of a five-year-old girl in Brisbane. Police received a triple-0 call from a home in Eagleby where they found the woman and the body of the girl.

They have not confirmed if she is the girl's mother. Meantime, a 67-year-old man has been charged with murder on the Sunshine Coast. after the body of a 68-year-old woman after the body of a 68-year-old woman was found in a home at Pelican Waters. In Melbourne, police are hunting for a 35-year-old man

over a fatal shooting in the city's east.

They say an argument broke out among a group of men late yesterday in Ringwood East. Shortly afterwards, a 47-year-old man was found lying on the road with two gunshot wounds to his upper body. He later died in hospital. They are appealing for the 35-year-old, who is believed to have been at the shooting scene, to come forward. Safety procedures in the scuba diving industry will come under scrutiny

at a meeting in Sydney today. It coincides with an incident on the Great Barrier Reef

where two British tourists spent more than five hours in the water after becoming separated from their boat. Col McKenzie from Dive Queensland has told Sunrise new safety standards are working. There is one fatality in diving for about every 100,000 dives and in Queensland we have one fatality for every 450,000 dives.

and in Queensland we have one fatality for every 450,000 dives. That makes it 4.5 times safer to dive in Queensland than anywhere else in the world. The tourists say they are keen to go diving again. There could be some relief in sight after weeks of spiralling petrol prices. The world's leading oil-producing nations are holding a crisis meeting today. OPEC members are expected to agree to an increase in oil production

ending the squeeze at the bowser. Analysts say prices could start falling this week. Australia may send an extra 200 troops to Afghanistan as early as next year. Defence Minister Robert Hill says Britain and NATO have requested the extra troops as part of an international effort to improve security in the country. The soldiers will be in addition to 190 SAS troops sent earlier this month.

A surge in violence is continuing across Iraq Checking sports news now with Mark Beretta. West Coast's medical staff will be working overtime this week. The Eagles have two key players battling injuries ahead of Saturday's grand final against Sydney. Midfielder Michael Braun has a knee injury but his team-mates are confident he will be fit to play. Forward Phil Matera has a groin strain. Rugby League and Wests Tigers' coach Tim Sheens has played down his team's chances of making the grand final.

The Tigers take on the Dragons this weekend for a spot in the decider after they beat the Broncos at Aussie Stadium yesterday. Valentino Rossi will have to keep the champagne on ice for at least another week. The Italian needed to finish in the top two at the Japanese Grand Prix to wrap up his fifth consecutive MotoGP title

but crashed out halfway through the race. Loris Capirossi got his first win of the season.

NZ golfer Michael Campbell's superb year on the fairways has continued. The US Open champion is now $2.41 million richer after winning the World Match Play Championship. He beat Irishman Paul McGinley 2 and 1 in this morning's final round. What a week it is shaping up to be for West Coast.

Not only are they now favourites to win Saturday's grand final, Eagles' skipper Ben Cousins is the runaway favourite

for tonight's Brownlow Medal.

Barry Hall is in fifth place at $10

for the award for the best and

fairiest player in the competition
