for Socceroos skipper Mark Viduka? and, Frank, security fears

John Howard has sent a letter, just

like he did before the Japan game.

Let's hope it works again. Adding

spice to the match is the fact that

there's rivalry between the players. at training, Crossing paths with the Socceroos to go with their Croatian heritage the Aussies who chose of mates. and ultimately a World Cup showdown have parents from Croatia, Seven of our squad were born in Australia. while three of our rivals How are you?

Coach Guus Hiddink says the team's focus. the Kewell drama hasn't affected It was not a distraction. No, not at all. in what I call 'hot' games. Those things happen to star tomorrow. Hiddink now expects Kewell the sides have only played four times Head to head, in friendly internationals - Croatia once, plus one draw. the Socceroos winning twice, Another draw should be enough will play it. but that's not how the Socceroos especially to this team It's impossible, I think, to say, in the attack, who like to go when possible and we go for a 0-0 draw." to say, "Hey, guys, we sit back of this team.

When you've got to call in security

for Mark Viduka, what's this about?

This is amazing. Not just his

holiday house in Croatia but also This is amazing. Not just his

that of Josip Skoko. There's been holiday house in Croatia but also

security guards posted around the

homes 24 hours for the best part of

three days in relation to maybe

reprisals from locals should

Australia beat Croatia. There's

another issue that Croatia is

staying at a hotel previously used

by the Dutch and previously Spain.

The police that have been there

have been in double the numbers. So

that's interesting in itself. Not

forgeting of course that all three

Australian games were considered

high risk out of 21 by FIFA.

Finally before we go - we're in a

good position, the Australians. We

go into this game against Crash why

with a better head-to-head record.

killing a man who turned out to be a local politician's security guard.

Six people were wounded, one fatally, when Australian soldiers opened fire on this vehicle, thinking they were insurgents. In fact, they were bodyguards of the Iraqi Trade Minister. This eyewitness says the security guards had just left the Minister's secure compound, wearing civilian clothes and armed with AK-47s. He says when the Australians thought the white vehicle was tying to overtake them, they shot and killed the driver. The Australian Defence Force has apologised for the tragedy

when they move to the southern city of Tallil. The ADF second role will be to help the Iraqis in crisis situations. Despite suggestions

our troops will be withdrawn from Iraq by the end of the year, the Prime Minister is determined to avoid putting a time limit on their role. There'd be no cutting and running. We will only leave when the job has been finished. The job keeps changing according to the Prime Minister.

Simon McHugh, aged 29, was bashed unconscious with an iron bar and had his skull and both arms fractured before being dumped into a weir and left to drown. It was a ferocious attack and what was so brutal was the fact that it was random. After 14 years in jail, one of his killers, 43-year-old Nigel Boland, has been granted parole and will be released next week - four years short of his full 18-year sentence. When they began to talk about his being released he began crying and weeping, and I called it snivelling. In its submission to the parole authority the State Government recommended his full sentence.

a former New Zealand league player, as well as Balmain, Roosters and Norths. It's believed he was planning an armed robbery attack this week with several other men. He's been charged with numerous offences including conspiracy to commit robbery. His accomplice, who was arrested at the same time, was released. Two other men have been arrested facing similar charges. All three have been refused bail. Bitter divisions have spilled over in Federal coalition ranks. Members are openly targeting rebel Liberals opposed to John Howard's asylum seeker laws, one MP branding them anarchistS

who want to bring down the Prime Minister. Liberal MP Don Randall is furious. He accuses 10 of his colleagues of holding the Government to ransom. We're getting sick and tired of the so0called dissidents, anarchists. But the dissenters refuse to be bowed. I still have a great deal of concern about asylum seekers who come to this country and then are sent somewhere else to another country. Last night Mr Howard, before he donned the glad rags to attend the mid-winter ball, called a special party room meeting.

As a tactic, it failed to deliver the numbers to pass the bill in the Senate. We're still talking through. There has been no final resolution on the key issues but we're still talking. Who are these people, with the odd exception? They're not people who support the Prime Minister. He accuses them of undermining the Government. But Judi Moylan maintains dissent is not disloyalty and the compromises in the bill cannot guarantee that Nauru will safeguard women and children or the rights of refugees. Labor agrees. Once you start with the principle that you're going to put people in another country, it's all over. Australian law stops. Mr Howard seems to concede this point but has not given up. The bill will be debated when we return in six weeks. Mr Howard had said he wanted the bill passed

before his meets Indonesia's President next week. that sounded like appeasement. For many he says he makes no apologies Now, in a change of tack, holding up the bill. for Australia's democratic processes he should withdraw the bill.

It's been a golden run for the Socceroos. Now the coach with the Midas touch is scheming and cajoling in a bid to make them the first Australians to go through the group stage. Australia won't be sitting back It can be very dangerous to play for a draw. It's a great game. Like I say - it's a Cup final for us. This team is trying to go for a win against - don't underestimate that - a highly profiled opponent. So it is impossible to be a director of a draw. Just four friendlies have been played between the two countries, Australia with two wins, Croatia one, plus a draw. Eight years ago the Croatians reached the World Cup semifinals at this Cup. but they're yet to score a goal have a huge crack at us Croatia will obviously definitely that can open things up and hopefully on the counter-attack as well. and we can look to get things lines up remains to be seen Just how the Socceroos strike force our most dangerous players. but Croatia has listed

Michael Owen has flown home,

devastated after rupturing the

anterior cruciate ligament in his

right knee. The injury has the

26-year-old facing six months on

the sideline. His Premier League

club Newcastle is considering a $7.5 million insurance claim

against the England Football Federation. The NRL have downgraded the role of the video referee. From now on on-field referees cannot change their decisions based on TV replays, unless foul play is involved. Meanwhile star full-back Anthony Minichiello has delayed re-signing with the Sydney Roosters He wants to chew it over with his mum and dad. Ricky Stuart has always relied heavily on Anthony Minichiello. Now he's relying on Mr and Mrs Minichiello. You know, he's got a lovely mother and father and it's, I think it's great that players want to go back and talk to their families about their decisions and I know both Mr and Mrs Minichiello will be - I hope - pushing him towards us. Minichiello remaining sidelined indefinitely after back surgery and there'll be no early comebacks despite the Roosters' dire position. Anthony doesn't need to be rushed back and then put him back into a position where he's at risk. So, you know, his long-term future is my main goal. Manly star Steve Bell also fighting injury. A collision with Sea Eagles team-mate Steve Menzies in State of Origin II

resulting in extensive surgery. Yes, three plates, about 16 screws or something, you so, a bit of work done. His comeback time put back to a minimum of six weeks. Just hoping there might be a few weeks missed and back into it

but, just to be safe and give it time, you know, a couple more weeks. So hopefully be right in time just to get ready for the finals.

Bell barred from training until next week. This Sunday, Manly are out to make it seven wins in a row at Brookvale Oval when they take on Brisbane. History is on their side. The Broncos haven't won here since 1992. It means a bit more to you just at home.

And I know the boys will be pumped up so hopefully we can keep that record intact. Meanwhile, veteran Canberra hooker Simon Woolford has signed with the Dragons for two years. Adam Hawse, Ten News.

It's due about two or three weeks

before that so there's - I've never

had a 2 or 3 week old baby before

so I mean that would be - thres the

potential for that sort of thing to go on. Ogilvy is back in Melbourne for a few weeks, before returning to have a crack at his second major, the Bristish Open next month. The world's best surfers have been treated to more classic waves in round 2 of the Rip Curl Search event in Mexico. But, not everyone had a smooth ride in the perfect conditions.

The right-hand point break showed it's brutal side and proved a real handful for a few of the competitors. Aussie Taj Burrow charged into the third round after outclassing local wild card Oscar Moncada in their sudden death heat. The 2m waves provided some long barrels and Australian Luke Stedman dropped in to one of the best of the day. Stedman takes on American Tim Rays in round 3. And in Sports Tonight, we'll have the latest from Germany

as the Socceroos prepare for their most important World Cup match. Stay with us. Tim Bailey's back with the latest weather details next.

Tim, Deb is querying if the roles

are reversed is much this evening,

where are your tight Lycra pants

and pom poms. My tight little Lycra

pants are at home where nobody but

one very special person in my life

can see them. On that side of the

fence, it gets really serious so

I'm on this side. It's the AFL

national women's championship.

Teams were all over Australia and

the ACT are about to take on NSW.

This, ladies and gentlemen, on your

television is the ACT. One, two, three.

(All sing) * Are we good, are we

good are we any bloody good?

# We are the girls of ACT

# ACT, show me the money!

#. They are taking on my personal

favourites, NSW, the girls are

favourites for this match. It

starts in half an hour. One, two,

three. (All sing) * Cheer, cheer, the almighty blues

# Game on, because we hate to lose

# Run and kick and mark the ball

# All in for all and one in for all #

Thank you, girls. Go out and warm

up. All the best against the ACT.

That part of the show is over,

folks. It's called Tim's teams on

Ten. Look, if you haven't won a

game all year or you're trying to

raise money for the clubhouse

you've always wanted. If you're in

you've always wanted. If you're in a Grand Final. If you've just got a

raffle. Contact me. We'll come out

to your place and do Tim's Teams on

Ten. We're going to run it through.

It doesn't matter if you're in

netball, ten pin bowling,

88-year-old lawn bowlers, footy

teams. We want to hear from you and

put you on the television.

We got the precipitation today. It

was grey all over the place. Once

again, it fell mainly in coastal

areas. Country ya got 56mm and the

catchment just got 6mm that will

happen again tomorrow I'm afraid.

Cloud is directed on the NSW and

Queensland coasts by onshore winds

bringing a few showers. Tomorrow,

moist onshore winds carry further

showers on to the east coast and a

trough triggers patchy rain over

inland NSW, eastern Victoria and

Tasmania. There's a little bit of

good news.

Rain forecasts - showers alodge the

eastern sea board and patchy rain

over eastern NSW. By Saturday a

cold front moves into the Tasman

and clears rain from eastern NSW.

Cold south westerlies behind the

front send showers and light Alpine

snowfalls across Victoria and

Tasmania and Thredbo and Perisher Blue.

Women's AFL. What about it? The

national carnival on here. The

finals is on 10 am and the other

final at noon. Around about 400

people playing in this State and the ACT.

Hello, mum and dad. I don't say

that often. See you tomorrow night. We all know money doesn't grow on trees. But in this Welsh town it recently rained from the sky. It came about when a mystery passer-by threw thousands of dollars into the air, shouting, "Who wants free money?" Startled shoppers were at first unsure what to do, but then the scramble for the free cash began.

Picking up money and there were old

dears there. They forgot their dears there. They forgot their arthritis. Police have optimistically appealed for the money to be returned while they try to get to the bottom of where it came from. That's the news at 5:00. I'm Ron Wilson. And I'm Deborah Knight. Thanks for your company, goodnight.
