For the first time in NRL history, a New South Wales side won't be playing in the grand final. The competition will be fought out between Melbourne and Brisbane after the Storm defeated the Dragons 24-10 at Telstra Stadium last night. The Storm were dangerous from the start. Greg Inglis crossed the line early on to put Melbourne on the board and in the lead. CHEERING COMMENTATOR: So it's a try. Melbourne led by six points at half-time continuing to dominate when they returned to the field.

But it's not all good news for the Storm

with Greg Inglis and Michael Crocker in doubt for the decider - both suffering injuries during last night's game. And the West will take on the the east in the AFL grand final for the second year in a row after the Eagles beat Adelaide 85 to 75. The Crows were awesome early, heading into the long break with a 22-point lead. The Eagles trailed for most of the match, but got within a point in the fourth quarter, thanks to a goal by Adam Hunter. Then Quinten Lynch kicked his first goal for the match, putting the Eagles in the front. West Coast will now go head to head with the Sydney Swans in the grand final next weekend. The Australian Opals have won the women's basketball world championship crushing Russia 91-74 in the final in Brazil. It's the first time the girls have won a gold medal despite placing in the top three nations at every Olympic Games and world championship since 1996. COMMENTATOR: Two, one!

It's over! Australia win the world championships for the first time.

Elation for our girls, but for Elation for our girls, but for our boys in tennis. Australia is out of the Davis Cup losing their semifinal against Argentina. The Aussies were two rubbers down after Jose Acasuso defeated Lleyton Hewitt when they resumed their rain-delayed match in the fifth set. Hewitt couldn't recover from the 4-0 deficit

and went down 6-1. Paul Hanley and Wayne Arthurs had it all to do in the doubles

but were outclassed by Agustin Calleri and David Nalbandian who won in straight sets.

Argentina through to the final. Australia out.

Pretty excited about that. Australia out. To the A-League, and the Central Coast Mariners have drawn with the Newcastle Jets. The draw leaves both teams without a win for the season. But the Mariners have broken their their goalless streak, with skipper John Hutchinson finding the net. Central Coast remains on the bottom of the ladder, with the Jets only one point ahead of them.

What about our girls in Brazil,

beating Russia. First goal for them.

Russia, their 3rd silver in a row,

they were really out for the gold.

has won.". Now to Sunday's weather: It's a warm day in many places. A very hot and dangerously windy 30 degrees in Sydney. Similar conditions today for Canberra. Looking further ahead now - Things should clear up tomorrow in Hobart before the showers return later in the week. Showers tomorrow and Tuesday in Melbourne. The showers should ease by tomorrow in Perth. Let's take a look at what's making papers around the country. The Sunday Age in Melbourne reveals that tens of thousands of banned toys are flooding Victorian shops. The products are apparently being imported from China and sold in Asian stores. They include toy guns and darts. The Consumer Affairs Department is warning parents

to steer clear of the products.

Thoseation toy stores are a magnet

for kids, so kids are going to be

having these banned toys. They are

cheap as well. Two dollar. You go

As you heard in our news, there are conflicting reports this morning about the fate of Osama bin Laden. Sources within the French intelligence service have been quoted as saying the al-Qa'ida leader died from typhoid in Pakistan But as we go to air, both countries say nothing can be confirmed. Dr Keith Suter is our foreign affairs editor. Good morning to you.

First up, we can't confirm it, but

how likely does

how likely does this report sound to

you? It is very difficult to work

out the validity of the report. The

prefrpb president said it is a

prefrpb president said it is a French report, hoe has gone that

far, as to whether or not the French

intelligence have got it right, we

still don't know. Who would announce

it anyway? Who would be in charge of

this information and have the

authority to say, "That's

authority to say, "That's it, he is

dead." It's a big deal. The report

suggested he died a month ago

suggested he died a month ago. You

would have expected his chief of

stauf or whatever to have made an

announcement that Osama bin Laden is

dead. So it's weird that it takes a

month for the news to trickle out month for the news to trickle out to

the west. That, again, is another

odd factor. You would expect another

quicker announcement. How do

But first, here's Simon with a news update. Good morning again, everyone. French and US officials can't confirm a report that Osama bin Laden is dead. A French newspaper has published a secret service report that says the al-Qa'ida leader died of typhoid in Pakistan. New South Wales is facing extreme weather conditions today with temperatures expected to soar into the mid 30s with winds up to 95km/h. A total fire ban is in place across most of the State. in next Sunday's NRL grand final And Melbourne will play Brisbane

after the Storm beat St George Illawarra 24-10 last night. It's the first time in NRL history that a New South Wales side won't be playing in the grand final. Weatherwatch now, and as we've reported,

hot conditions today in Brisbane and Sydney. Rain should develop in Hobart while Adelaide is also expecting a few showers. And I'll have more news at 9 o'clock. Many of us sometimes think our federal pollies are on a different planet. This week, it seemed some of them agreed. That sounds like an episode from the Riley Diary. 'DR WHO' THEME PLAYS It was the week the Labor Party's science of factions became science fiction. Labor warrior Robert Ray warned that the party was under attack from an extraterrestrial foe. From the suffocating collaboration of those factional Daleks. Overrun by factional Daleks?! Exterminate, exterminate! Senator Ray mounted a call to arms. We must demand of faction leaders that they put the party's interest ahead of factional supremacy. Daleks on earth? Doctor... Leave this to me, dear boy. I think you better let us go.

DALEK: We do not release prisoners. We are the masters of the earth. Not for long. Obey us or die. Robert Ray reckoned factional Daleks, like his Senate colleagues Stephen Conroy and Kim Karr thought they were the supreme rulers.

(repeats) We are the masters of earth. Now, Robert Ray is known for his straight, and often sharp, talking. His run-ins with the media in his years as Defence Minister are legendary. REPORTER: Are you concerned about the... Look, you didn't ask me for an interview, so buzz off, buzz off! And when he didn't like a story, he let you know about. Looks like a beat-up, smells like a beat-up, is a beat-up. There are Daleks all over this place - SINISTER MUSIC this is just garbage bin with attitude - but you don't have to go back in the Tardis very far to know that Robert Ray was once of the factional Dalek leaders himself. In fact, he created Stephen Conroy, and now it seems he wants him to meet the most devilish Dalek fate. Exterminate! But the man who really does want to be supreme ruler is standing by his, um... ..Daleks. Karr and Conroy are good, effective members of my front bench, working overtime. Can't he hear the calls from his party elders? Exterminate! Annihilate! Destroy! Daleks, conquer and destroy! The only thing we're going to exterminate is John Howard's industrial relations laws. That's what we are going to do. Uh-ha! That's what you call turning an attack into an attack. But what about Robert Ray's spray? Senator Ray is a member of the Labor Party in very good standing and a personal friend of mine. Senator Ray has the best interests of the Labor Party at heart. Maybe, but he is still doing it by attacking the very people you reckon are working overtime to help you! Look, I'm focused on one thing - that's to put in place the right policies to defeat John Howard. Yeah, yeah - but what's your policy on defeating the Daleks? Many, many years ago I was a fan of 'Dr Who'. Ah-ha! Then you know how dangerous this is. You wouldn't want to be Stephen Conroy with Robert Ray bearing down on your. Help me! Help me! Help! Help! Mark Riley in Canberra, good morning.

When I heard that comment during

Diary, Daleks everywhere. Did you

Canberra. It's great we get to see all that. A very serious place.

Despite his hypocrisy, does Robert

Ray have a point? He does, and Mark

Latham had the point in his book Latham had the point in his book and Simon Crean before him, it is not a

new point. In fact, Simon Crean

new point. In fact, Simon Crean is the only Labor leader who tried

the only Labor leader who tried to do something about it, taking the

factions on it is at the national

conference. As far as the Labor

Party is concerned, the only thing

that really solved their problem,

the panacea, the magic pill, is

winning an election. Something he

hasn't been able to do for 10 years.

What has captured our attention

What has captured our attention this week? A little bit of adjustment in

the frufrn bench in cabinet, Mark

Vaile, the trade minister will make

the much mooted move to the

transPort Lincoln folia, it allowed

him to stay home and deal with the

issues within the National Party

that have been really, sort of

burning away for the last year or

so. So he can pay a bit more

attention there. There attention there. There is an

opportunity for the Prime Minister

to make a broader reshuffle if he

wants to but he also

wants to but he also has the

opportunity later in the year.

Tomorrow, wait for pictures of the

man who wants to be the top gun,

to buzz off. I have been exterminated. Wondering what 'Friends' star Courtney Cox has been up to? We'll chat to her in this half hour. Next, have you ever fallen for someone who's married? We've got some advice in the Counselling Corner.

It's time now for the Counselling Corner. Today, we're helping out with personal and work issues.

Sometimes the two cross over. They

do, more often than not. Our resident psychologist Jo Lamble is standing by to answer your questions. Jodie from Western Australia is on the line. Jodie, what's your question for Jo? Good morning,

Good morning,ify fiance just

want people to know your business. It is particularly difficult. Jenny

in Queensland says. She says: "My partner can't come to terms with my past "and I don't know what to do about it. "He's incredibly jealous of my ex-boyfriend, "even though I have nothing to do with him. "The other day he found a photo of my ex, and he completely lost it?

"How can I convince him that I love him, not my ex?"

Yes, see there is your problem,

trying to convince him. They don't

say jealousy is a curse

say jealousy is a curse for nothing. It is such a destructionive emotion and needs to be

and needs to be kept at an absolute

minimum. You can help him. A vicious

confront you. You reassure him, and

he feels better for a while. Then he find a photo or something

triggers it and he feels jealous

again and he comes to you again and

again. It makes him dependent on the

reashrps and makes the jealousy

worse. Both partners have to do the

right thing. If you esure too much

they get more jealous, over time

people back off and get annoyed and

withdraw. And it makes the jealous

your feelings for your exor go on

about where you want to be. If he

doesn't learn to soothe himself and

decrease the jealousy, the

relationship will be under pressure.

The three magical words, see if they help. Finally we have an email from Michelle in Victoria. She says: "My boyfriend bought me an expensive dress for my birthday "and I really don't like it.

"Should I hurt his feelings and exchange it, "or should I keep it and wear it, "even if it means being arrested by the fashion police?" Jo Lamble, thanks for talking to us this morning.

We have all found our ourselves in

this dilemma. I made a mess of this

recently. While it is important most

of the time to speak up and being

assertive, some people find it can difficult to listen to the truth,

particularly partners when they have

Yeah, just like the makers of this movie. And in this case, that's a good thing. VOICE-OVER: We see what they want us to see. We hear what they want us to hear. They think we can't handle the truth. Whoo! (oinks) All clear! What happens in the barn, stays in the barn. CHICKEN CLUCKS Wassup? This is a farm where anything goes, especially when the farmer is away, but the goal is not to get caught. (cow laughs hysterically) Woo-woo-woo-hoo! Woo-hoo, woo-hoo! (slows) Woo-hoo...woo-hoo Wooooooh-hooooo.... Ah, moo? When all the fun is over, one of the animals has to step in as leader, and that responsibility goes to carefree Otis. FUNKY MOBILE PHONE TUNE Hey, Otis. (Laughs) Former 'Friends' star Courteney Cox is the voice of Otis's love interest, Daisy the Cow. I'm...I'm Otis. Uh-uh. Back off, Daisy. There's an L on that boy's forehead.

I definitely, because she is so much younger than me, I had to raise my - I mean, like, my voice was a little lighter and I just slowed down 'cause I talk really fast. Just, she had to be really sweet and caring and good, and I'm sweet and caring, but, you know, I'm a little more jaded than Daisy the Cow. Not looking! This is my friend, Bessy. Yeah, she's a cupcake.

Playing Otis's wise father, Ben, is veteran Sam Elliott. He says the whole thing took some getting used to. Let me know if you see Otis. Oh, I'm staying outta that one.

So what is this cow named Ben, and why does does Ben have udders?

You know, it came up quite a few times over the three-year period that we were working on it. Lovely Andie MacDowell also lends her voice, as the opinionated Etta the Hen. 0h, Ben, don't worry. I'm sure he's headed for the meeting right now. She denies any physical resemblance to the character. Oh! That is hysterical! I don't think so at all, for heaven's sakes.

What is it? Oh, my God! One thing Andie is happy to admit is how proud her kids are that she's in this film. They didn't know I was in 'Barnyard'. I told them earlier in the year, I said, "Oh, I'm in an animated movie, "I'm excited I'm going to be in

an animated movie." "Oh, that's great, Mom." So then I told my daughters that I was leaving. I said, "I'm going to LA to promote the movie that I did." "Oh, what movie is it?" I said, "It's 'Barnyard'". They were, like, "You were in 'Barnyard!'" Well, where do I start, I was married, life was good. Courteney Cox says her little daughter Coco was her inspiration. I would like to do things that she can see, and, you know, 'cause Coco, my daughter, likes to watch things over and over

so it's nice to have something that I will enjoy 'cause I have seen 'Nemo', probably 1,000 times.

(repeats) # Do your thing # Make my life dance # Do your thing # Lisa and Larry, this movie is a little bit like 'Animal Farm' in heat,

without all the heavy stuff, if that makes sense. It's a little predictable, but that's the way some kids' stories are. Now, next week I'm going to tell you now - wear something fabulous because I'm going to have my very exclusive interview

Right now though, it's time for the latest news with Simon Reeve. Good morning again, Simon. Good morning. US intelligence officials have dismissed rumours that Osama bin Laden is dead. A French newspaper has printed

an unconfirmed French secret service report that quotes Saudi Arabian officials who believe Bin Laden is dead. Sunrise foreign affairs editor Dr Keith Suter says it's impossible to know if the report is true. that he died a month ago so you would have expected his chief of staff, or whatever, to have made an announcement that Osama bin Laden is dead, so it's weird that it takes a month

for the news to trickle out to the west. Dr Suter believes that the war on terror will continue even if Osama bin Laden is dead. There's an extreme fire danger across most of New South Wales today and a total fire ban for 40% of the State. Temperatures are expected to reach the mid 30s

with winds up to 95km/h. A number of fires are already burning across Sydney and the Central Coast.

Residents are being urged to be prepared. Queensland firefighters are also expecting a busy day, with hot, dry conditions. Officials believe a large grassfire that threatened homes north of Brisbane yesterday afternoon, was deliberately lit.

Police in Melbourne have charged a 25-year-old man

over the death of his housemate in the city's south-east. The 46-year-old victim was discovered yesterday morning inside his Seaford home. He'd suffered serious head injuries. The suspect was charged with murder last night and has been remanded in custody. There are grave fears for 24 people, including an Australian woman, on board a helicopter that's gone missing in Nepal. The chopper was carrying World Wildlife Fund and government officials when it disappeared over mountains in the country's east. Australian Jill Bowling,

who is a conservation director of the WWF, was among six foreigners on the flight. Rescue efforts are being slowed by bad weather and the remote terrain. The Australian Dental Association says the Opposition's promise to introduce a national dental health scheme won't work. The Queensland president of the ADA, Dr Robert McCrae, says there aren't enough dentists to do the work. He says there needs to be an extra 150 dentists graduating every year for the next decade just to meet current demand. More than 600,000 Australians are on Government-waiting lists for dental treatment. The Federal Government says it's disappointed that some of Australia's top entertainers won't perform for our troops in Iraq for political reasons. Several artists, including the Whitlams and Col Joye, have rejected Government requests to play for diggers this Christmas. They say they support the soldiers, but don't agree with the war. The Defence Minister says musicians should be able to separate the politics of war with the sacrifice being made by troops serving overseas. Late-night diners at a Sydney pizza shop had a nasty surprise last night when a car drove into the restaurant. The P-plater crashed through the front window of the West Pennant Hills Pizza Hut after an accident with another vehicle. No-one was hurt. But it does bring new meaning to the term "drive-through" restaurant.

Now to sport, and here's Kylie Gillies. For the first time in NRL history, a New South Wales side won't be playing in the grand final. The competition will be fought out between Melbourne and Brisbane after the Storm defeated the Dragons 24-10 at Telstra Stadium last night. The Storm were dangerous from the start.

Greg Inglis crossed the line early on to put Melbourne on the board and in the lead. CHEERING

COMMENTATOR: So it's a try! Melbourne led by six points at half-time, continuing to dominate when they returned to the field. But it's not all good news for the Storm with Greg Inglis and Michael Crocker in doubt for the decider - both suffering injuries during last night's game.

This morning the Storm are slight

favourites with the bookies. The west will take on the the east in the AFL grand final for the second year in a row after the Eagles beat Adelaide 85 to 75. The Crows were awesome early heading into the long break with a 22-point lead. The Eagles trailed for most of the match, but got within a point in the fourth quarter thanks to a goal by Adam Hunter.

Then Quinten Lynch kicked his first goal for the match, putting the Eagles in front. West Coast will now go head to head with the Sydney Swans in the grand final next weekend. The Australian Opals

West Coast Eagles are slight

favourites with the bookies.

The Australian Opals have been crowned the world championship of women's basketball crushing Russia 91-74 in the final in Brazil. It's the first time the girls have won a gold medal despite placing in the top three nations at every Olympic Games and world championship since 1996. COMMENTATOR: It's over! Australia win the world championships for the first time!

That's great news for the girls

That's great news for the girls this morning, but bad news for the tennis Australia is out of the Davis Cup losing their semifinal against Argentina. The Aussies were two rubbers down after Jose Acasuso defeated Lleyton Hewitt when they resumed their rain delayed match in the fifth set. Hewitt couldn't recover from the 4-0 deficit and went down 6-1. Paul Hanley and Wayne Arthurs had it all to do in the doubles but were outclassed by Agustin Calleri and David Nalbandian who won in straight sets. Argentina through to the final.

grandee, good to see. Now to Sunday's weather: It's a warm day in many places. A very hot and dangerously windy 30 degrees in Sydney. Similar conditions today for Canberra. Looking further ahead now - Things should clear up tomorrow in Hobart before the showers return later in the week. Showers tomorrow and Tuesday in Melbourne. The showers should ease by tomorrow in Perth. The Great Barrier Reef is considered

one of the great wonders of the world, so it's no wonder almost 2 million people visit it every year. But a controversial new study says it should become a no-go zone for tourists. The British Centre for Future Studies says too many visitors will damage the reef, and eventually force its closure. So do Australian experts agree? Joining us from the Gold Coast is reef expert, Dr Russell Reichelt, and here in the studio, Federal Tourism Minister Fran Bailey. Good morning to you both. Dr Reichelt, we'll start with you. Is tourism threatening the reef?

No, in my opinion, tourism is a great boom to the

great boom to the reef and its

management because it lets people

realise how fabulous the reef is. It

is a tightly managed industry. We

did a study of the

tourism to the roof? It would be disastrous. We have 1. disastrous. We have 1.8 million

tourists coming there each year. We

earn around $ earn around $5 billion earn around $5 billion for

earn around $5 billion for tourism from the roof. As Russ was saying,

there is minimal impact on the roof

from tourists. I was there recently.

It is fantastic hearing the

operators explaining about the roof,

really, it is part of an education

process. That is a very interesting

point y have spent a bit of time

jumping off boats and jumping off boats and there is

nobody who loves the reef more than

tour operators. They love it

tour operators. They love it so much. They are so protective. It is

in their interests because to have a

sustainable long term business, that

reef has got to be maintained in pristine condition and it is.

Shouldn't There be some

Shouldn't There be some restrictions at the very least? What shing things

are in place? At the end of the day

they are making a dollar so it they are making a dollar so it is in

their interests to make the dollar,

but how do you police is? There is

the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park

aen Authority. The commonwealth

works in conjunction with the State

Government and they do restrict

where the operators can go. The

commonwealth restricted the number

of commercial fishermen who can

operate. We are constantly

monitoring and making sure we

preserve this wonderful icon. Dr

Reichelt, is it enough for you? Are we doing enough?

on the show we will do a run through. It's now been 10 years since Australia's first legal and voluntary euthanasia death. It happened in the Northern Territory, but just six months later, the Federal Government overturned the Top End's euthanasia laws. The issue remains controversial with senior minister Amanda Vanstone again calling for a review. So should someone close to death be able to choose how they go? It's over to our Weekend All Stars. Glenn Wheeler from Radio 2UE, and social commentator Rebecca Le Tourneau. Good morning to you both. Glenn, it's a difficult issue, what do you believe should happen?

I'm totally in support of

aougtnatia. Whilst Amanda

aougtnatia. Whilst Amanda Vanstone has been terribly brave in what she

said, standing in the face of many

polys who wouldn't be as gutsy, the

issue is an emotional issue. Anybody

who has been through the near-death

experience with a loved one knows

how difficult it can be. I haven't

been. My theory is none of us

actually ask to be born. We are born

because two people decide to

procreate. The option of being able

to decide how you go out, to a

certain extent, is very important.

Particularly when it is a question

of dying with dignitty, suffering.

Bec, can a government decide whether

to make this law or not or is

to make this law or not or is the decision too personal and too close.

Something to take on board and do

with your heart? There is that

aspect. But what Amanda Vanstone has

done, she is incredibly brave

politicians, she is a gutsy woman.

She is doing what our politicians

should do and bring up a matter of
