in yesterday's AFL Grand Final against Sydney. The Swans clawed their way back from a 25-point half-time deficit. But they couldn't get over the top of the Eagles who won their third premiership

in club history. It's just a huge amount of relief and I think it is a very surreal feeling. will probably need a while just to soak it all in. Andrew Embley was awarded the Norm Smith medal given to the player judged best on ground. It was a bitter-sweet homecoming for Swans ruckman Darren Jolly who flew back to Sydney early last night to be with his wife and new baby. He didn't come back with the AFL trophy, but he was sporting a little extra baggage

for his daughter born just two days before the Grand Final.

Of Course, we spoke all about Darren

on last week's show. It's Rugby League's turn to go Grand Final crazy tonight, when the Melbourne Storm meets the Brisbane Broncos in the premiership decider at Telstra Stadium.

It's also the last match for retiring Brisbane great, front rower Shane Webcke. He says he won't put too much pressure on himself and just wants to play well to help his team beat Melbourne. The Storm are favourites to win in front of a sell out crowd. If successful, Melbourne will become the most dominant premier in 10 years losing just four games all season. Defending champion Ferdando Alonso is a step closer to retaining his Formula One title, taking pole position for today's Chinese Grand Prix. Horrible conditions made it hard for many drivers to see. But Alonso made the best of it and will line up alongside team-mate Giancarlo Fisichella on the front row. Australian Mark Webber was one of several cars to slide off the track. He'll start from 15th. Australia's Craig Mottram has capped off a brilliant season by winning the 3,000m road race at the Great Northern Run meeting in England.

Looking further ahead, a late shower for Brisbane tomorrow, clearing up the following day. The chance of showers in Sydney. Some rain possible tomorrow in Canberra. But the showers will clear in Hobart. Showers also clearing in Melbourne. Fine in Adelaide over the next couple of days. A humid change tomorrow in Perth, before showers on Tuesday. Let's take a look at what's making papers around the country. And as you'd expect, the footy dominates the front pages. But, obviously, different papers have different takes on it.

B Depends on where you buy your newspapers this morning. Western Australia's 'Sunday Times' has a special edition with the headline, "It's Ours". But take a look at Sydney's 'Daily Telegraph' "Heartbreak" says it all but the paper still calls the Swans' performance magnificent.

An exclusive centre is enticing parents with five-star services for babies and toddlers and parents are willing to pay thousands extra for it. The luxuries include designer furniture, handmade bibs, high-quality bed linen and gourmet food.

The deluxe service can cost up to $100 a day. This particular centre is at Cronulla, in Sydney's south. So, what do you think?

Former Aussie Test cricketer Craig McDermott is the unfortunate victim. A court was told yesterday he was forced to hand over more than $50,000 to stop intimate home movies of he and his wife being released on the Internet.

The paper reports police fitted the former fast bowler with a secret body wire this week to trap the alleged extortionist.

A trap which has worked apparently

and now the gentleman is in trouble,

it would seem. So yeah. And finally, Sydney's 'Sun Herald' reports you are what you wear - on your feet, anyway. An online poll asked women what shoes they prefer to wear on the first date. The results were analysed by a shoe expert in New York.

I don't think that girl would have any trouble geting a first date, an attractive lady.

That's hard to say for Sunday

the greatest. It is not since 66

the history of these two, we can

safely call them superclubs, with

supercoaches in Worsfold and Raas.

The last five patches to be decided

by a 12 points is just remarkable.

Between them, the last four Brownlow

Medals between the two

Medals between the two clubs. The

thing that stood out was West Coast

remarkable start, they got off and

running. The incredible midfield was

firing, they were sending the ball

forward and hitting the mark. The

Swans were nervous. They couldn't

get traction. I would love to know

what Paul ruseed at half-time, he

turned it around. Do you think he

publicly declared we publicly declared we haven't got, we

haven't got the heart for this and

it turned around? He is a master of

it. And John Worsfold. These are the

two great coaches of the time.

Worsfold captained the first two

sides in 92 and 94 and now the

third. We were sitting at home

thinking, "That's it, it's over.

Were you thinking the same? I was

surrounded by about 1,000 West Coast

fans, they worked so hard in the

first quarter and they were just 16

points up,

put in. Everyone knows what the

Swans are capable of doing. Barry

kicking six goals. There was always

the feeling he was going to fire.

the Norm Smith was incredible. If

you get 20

senior football is fantastic. It is

remarkable. Kicked a couple of goals

remarkable. Kicked a couple of goals and kicked a goal in the end that

sealed it. You were sitting in a sea

of West Coast and you had had a

Sydney skafrb, but did the right

team win? They did. I don't think

any Swans sporter would say any Swans sporter would say they

weren't the better team on

weren't the better team on the day.

It was a great contest and the great

moment was hearing the captains

speak afterwards and the way they

paid tribute to each other. Both

teams rel really respect each other

as the best teams in the

competition. It is indicative of the

reason why they are

reason why they are sitting at the top of the table. We don't want to

keep you here too long because you

have to get the party pies and

The West Coast Eagles are still celebrating after their 1-point win in yesterday's AFL Grand Final against Sydney. The Swans clawed their way back from a 25-point half-time deficit but they couldn't get over the top of the Eagles who won their third premiership in club history. Dozens of Australians have returned to Bali to mark the first anniversary of the second bombings. On this day last year, explosions tore through restaurants and cafes at Kuta and Jimbaran Bay, killing 20 people. And Kylie Minogue has taken centre stage at the launch of her new children's book in London. She wrote 'The Showgirl Princess' Kylie wrote the story while recovering from breast cancer. Weatherwatch this Sunday - fine across most of the eastern capitals. A late change in Melbourne.

Just further to what Barett is said,

just how gracious the captains were.

They spoke

They spoke so beautifully and after

the game putting it

the game putting it all into

perspective, saying it's not life

gadeath, but great to be part of a

footy club. Great speech and great

example. We will see you shortly. Our Treasurer may be used to playing second fiddle but this week he wasn't going to be outdone by anyone. He jumped straight into a pilot program with a difference. Here's the Riley Diary. KENNY LOGGINS' 'DANGER ZONE' PLAYS This was the week Peter Costello finally got to play top gun, visiting an RAAF base, taking the highway... ..to the danger zone.

PETER COSTELLO: You didn't have to come in and film me. Oh, yes we did! We wouldn't want the good people to miss out on this. 'TOP GUN' MOVIE CLIP: Tell me one thing -

if you had to go into battle, would you want him with you? I don't know, I just don't know. Well, we're about to find out exactly what he'd be like when the throttle's down and the after-burners are roaring. I feel the need - I feel the need for speed. (both) Ow! # Take my breath away # And so for the final preparations. With his name painted on the side, helmet on, and strapped in, ready for a secret mission. But for what purpose, exactly? I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. Well, we won't go that far then.

Let's just call it "Operation Blatant Media Stunt". You know, we can't get past the fact that even though this was supposed to show Peter Costello as the top gun, he ended up finding himself in a pretty familiar place - the co-pilot's seat. Preparing for take off, there was just one more important thing to remember. You don't own the plane, the taxpayers do. Oh, but this is all about protecting the taxpayers' investment in the Hornet fleet, it's very important for the Treasurer to know how the money is being spent...heh. And finally, it's time for takeoff. Roaring off into the great wide unknown. His call sign for the day? Cougar! Easy, Cougar. Cougar, this is Maverick. We've had enough fun for one day, don't you think? I'm getting a little low on fuel, so I'm heading for home. Finally, our hero was home, safely back on the tarmac with a smile, and a wave and a tale of supersonic wonderment. When you're just going straight up and then straight down and taking out targets in the middle of it, that is the most skilled, professional operation I reckon I've ever seen. So, could you have missed your calling in life? Would you like to be spending more time in the cockpit than the parliamentary bear-pit? Oh, I think I'll leave it a couple of days

before my next Hornet flight, if that's alright (laughs). But it looks like our hero has been winged. Is that a bit of blood on the ear? All in a day's work. Yeah, yeah, it's from - I think it's from the helmet. Don't film my bad side. So what's the final verdict on this fly boy from the commanding officer? Son, your ego is writing cheques your body can't cash. Ego? In politics?! Never! Mark Riley is up with the relos in Newcastle this weekend. But he never misses a Riley Diary. Mark, good morning.

Good morning. That was fantastic.

Different families do this in different ways. Some families, they

they might agree to just buy

presents for the kids and that saves

money all around or indeed, set a

"Although it's been two years, he still can't accept I've moved on. "The other day he turned up with flowers and chocolates, "and then got upset when I didn't show him any affection.

Thank you for joining us. Next week, our parenting expert Dr Michael Carr-Gregg will be here to answer your questions. So if you have a question for Michael you can email our Soapbox. Ahead on Weekend Sunrise, the near-nude calendar that has football bosses in a spin. We'll take a closer look after 9:00. But next, another Nelson Aspen exclusive. We meet the cast of 'The Devil Wears Prada'. VOICEOVER: Compare the pair. Same age. Same super contribution. Yet there could be a lifetime of difference in their final retirement payout. His fund does pay commissions. His fees are lower.

His fees are higher. Industry Super Funds are run only to profit members. Industry Super Funds - a lifetime of difference. Welcome back. Let's go to the movies now. This morning, we've got the film they're calling the chick flick of the year.

I'm going to go over there and you

can take it. It stars the legendary Meryl Streep and young gun Anne Hathaway. Nelson Aspen spoke exclusively to both of them. Nelson, good morning. Good morning to you, Lisa. Good morning to you, too, Larry. Well, I tell you I must have had a lucky guardian angel on my shoulder for this one. It's not every day I get to fly to New York City, sit down for a chat with the greatest actresses of our time, of all time, perhaps, and celebrate the release of her new film, 'The Devil Wears Prada'.

I have an appointment with Emily

Chardton. Great human resources has

an odd sense of humour. Okay, picture this - a young naive woman comes to Manhattan looking for a job with a fashion magazine.

Chardton. Great human resources has an odd sense of humour. My God, I

will pretend you did not just ask me

that. She is the editor in chief of

1 rai. You just know there's going to be hell to pay.

Everyone, gird your loins! In the 'Devil Wears Prada', Meryl Streep is pure evil as the editor-in-chief of the fictitious 'Runway' magazine.

You have no style or sense of

fashion. Well, um, I think that

depends on what you're... No, no,

that wasn't a question. But in real life, the Oscar-winning legend couldn't be nicer. The four most overused words in the English language this week have been, "I love Meryl Streep." What is that? Is that a burden?

(lauhgs) No, that's good. It would be worse worse if it were, "I hate Meryl Streep." Those words have never even been uttered, I'm sure. But how do you consistently, through all the years, all the films, handle that kind of adoration? Um, well, um...it's coupled with a healthy dose of (yawns) from another segment of the population, so it all evens out. That's no way to talk about your family, I'm sure they adore you. (laughs)

Good morning. Successful young actress Anne Hathaway relished her role as the new, naive assistant.

Pick up my shoes from Bilanic Pick up my shoes from Bilanic and get Patricia. Everybody loves to see you and your pluck. Oh, gosh, my pluck. I think probably because I'm not, like, a superglamorous, you know, over-the-top pretty girl. I'm not Jessica Alba and I don't have, like, this dark, mysterious allure of a Marlene Dietrich. Oh! I just said her name wrong, I always say her name wrong. "Rick", "Rich" - it's OK. We know. Oh, gosh! And I make mistakes publicly and I'm fine with it. That's why everbody likes to see me as the "every" woman.

I'm a 6. Which is the new 14. Stanley Tucci also stars.

Shoot. Never mind, I'm sure you have

plenty more polyblend where that came from. I learned that I wouldn't want to have Anne's job in the movie. That's what I learned. But most of the the cast, Emily Blunt included,

were just thrilled to be working with a screen goddess. I have to ask -

I don't understand why it is so

difficult to confirm an appointment.

The details of your incomp tense

The details of your incomp tense do not interest me.

I have to ask - what the experience of working with Meryl Streep must have been like for you? Meryl?

Streep. Two Es - the second E is silent. Oh, yeah. (Laughs) She - I love Meryl Streep, she's just a force of nature.

? Don't know, drizzling. Everybody has their favourite, at least one - at least one Meryl Streep movie. Do you have a favourite Meryl Streep movie? (speaks with Australian accent) Well, I'm rather partial to 'Cry In The Dark'. You taught a whole generation of Americans what a dingo was. We didn't know before. Yeah, but that was - I'm very proud of that movie.

We're talking about my

We're talking about my baby daughter... Not some object. Isn't Meryl amazing?

Of course, I can call her Meryl now, we're old friends, on a first-name basis since I shaved my head, practically, for her. You can see it's grown back, thank goodness. You will definitely have a good time when you see this movie. It is based on a very successful book, interestingly, written by the assistant to the real-life editor-in-chief of 'Vogue' magazine, Anna Wintour. Of course, they deny that there's any possible resemblance between the two. Have a devilish Sunday. (laughs menacingly)

Thank you, he has got somewhere

Thank you, he has got somewhere to go, I'm sure. Doesn't his hair

go, I'm sure. Doesn't his hair grow back quickly. The 'Devil Wears

back quickly. The 'Devil Wears back quickly. The 'Devil Wears Prada' is in cinemas right now. I

saw it during the week, it is

saw it during the week, it is fantastic. Mayoral Streep is great,

but the girl who plays the first

assistant, Emily Blunt steels the

movie and Aussie Simon Baker comes

in and plays a quasi love interest.

He is trying to get Anne Hathaway

He is trying to get Anne Hathaway on side. Dd you take the boy along for

the chick flick. No, I went with a

girlfriend. We both loved it. Would

he like it? I think it is more a

girl's movie. Meryl Streep is great.

Thanks for your honesty. It is a

great chick flick, it really is. Coming up, the great vaccination debate. Should you make your child have that shot?

Now you said that on telly, I don't

have to go. Plus why Joanne Lees has broken her silence.

But next, news with Simon, and sport with Kylie. You're waking up with friends.

Now you said that on telly, I don't have to go. This is 'Weekend

have to go. This is 'Weekend Sunrise', with Lisa wigicalson and Larry emder. Good morning. Welcome back to Weekend Sunrise. It's 12 months today since terrorists struck the Indonesian island of Bali. Three separate bombs tore though restaurants and cafes packed with tourists. Coming up, we'll look at how Bali has rebuilt one year on. Also ahead, to vaccinate or not to vaccinate? That is the question. There've been more than a couple of meningococcal disease scares in recent weeks. But some don't want to give their child a shot.

We'll tackle that debate in this half hour. Then, it's a big day in the NRL. But there's also a big controversy over a certain nude charity calendar. When several of the League's boys launched the publication this week, they probably weren't expecting the reaction they received from their bosses. NRL management has slammed it, saying it's not something it would have approved, or want to be associated with. We'll have that story for you shortly. But what do you think?

Buns of steel, Lisa, buns of steel.

Thank you, that's very kind of you. Is it okay to bare almost all for charity? Drop us an email or send us an SMS.

We would like to take your vote if

Simon is Mr January or Mr March for

the sneez calendar. Right now though, it's time for the latest news with Simon Reeve. Good morning again, Simon.

The West Coast Eagles and their fans will be nursing sore heads this morning after a night of celebrations following their Grand Final triumph. The Eagles continued their run of close games against the Sydney Swans winning by 1-point to claim the club's third premiership. It's been 12 years since West Coast held the premiership cup. CHEERING After last year's disappointment, the narrow win brought a sense of satisfaction. We're the premiership team of 2006, everyone else can work out the reasons behind it, but, from within the club, we know the work we've put in. The Swans, who were honoured at a low-key dinner after the game, were philosophical in defeat. The one thing that helps me right now what the footy club stands for, and I know every player out there should be so proud of what they achieved today. Whilst it is bitterly disappointing to lose, we can take some consolation in the fact it was a great team that beat us and it was only by a point. Celebrations began immediately for West Coast. Fans went wild in Perth. WILD CHEERING While in Melbourne, the team partied long into the night.

# We're the Eagles, the West Coast

# And we're here to show you why. It was another epic contest, but this year, the Eagles are the champions. Last year the best team in the competition was Sydney, this year, the fact is it's us, so no-one can argue with that and that's a very good feeling. Prime Minister John Howard has paid tribute to the courage of Australians as Bali remembers those killed in last year's suicide bombings. 20 people, including four Australians, died when three bombers blew themselves up in restaurants at Kuta and Jimbaran Bay exactly one year ago. Dozens of Australians have returned to the island

to attend a tightly guarded memorial service. We'll go to our correspondent Adrian Brown in Bali shortly. Australian terror suspect David Hicks could be one of the first Guantanamo Bay detainees to face the new US military commission, possibly early next year. The 31-year-old Adelaide man has been held in Cuba since 2001. Attorney-General Philip Ruddock, who is in Washington for security talks, says he is confident the new US terror legislation will protect Hicks' rights. Two people are fighting for their lives after a horrific crash in Melbourne. Police say the Holden Commodore was travelling at high speed along a suburban street in Cranbourne when the driver lost control slamming into a power pole. He's in a serious condition. The passenger lost an arm in the crash.

forward and fall, backwards. Thank you all, now here is Kylie with sport. The West Coast Eagles will fly home today with the premiership cup

after a thrilling 1-point victory against Sydney. The Swans clawed their way back from a 25-point half-time deficit but they couldn't get over the top of the Eagles, who reversed the disappointment of last year. It's just a huge amount of relief. And I think it is a very surreal feeling. I think most of the boys will probably need a while just to soak it all in. Andrew Embley was awarded the Norm Smith medal, given to the player judged best on ground. With the AFL over, Sydney will today go NRL Grand Final crazy. Storm fans arrived this morning after a long bus trip from Melbourne, confident their team can get over the top of the Brisbane Broncos. Go Storm! FAN: (Screams) Brisbane prop Shane Webcke will be hoping he can finish his career on a high. He retires after tonight's Grand Final but says he will not let his emotions get the better of him. Fernando Alonso has taken pole position for today's Chinese Grand Prix. Horrible conditions made it hard for many drivers to see. But Alonso made the best of the wet conditions and will line up alongside team-mate Giancarlo Fisichella on the front row. Australian Mark Webber was one of several cars to slide off the track.

He'll start from 15th.

Australian Adam Scott has moved into second place in the American Express world golf championship in England. in a flawless third round 65. But Scott is still six shots behind the leader, Tiger Woods. Aussie surfer Joel Parkinson has taken out the Quicksilver Pro in France. The Gold Coaster beat Mick Fanning from Coolangatta in an all-Australian final for his first victory of 2006. The win takes Parkinson to fourth in the world rankings.

What a treat that would have been.

Now to Sunday's weather. Morning frost in Canberra.

Melbourne can expect a late change and a top of 26. Looking further ahead, a late shower for Brisbane tomorrow, clearing up the following day. The chance of showers in Sydney. Some rain possible tomorrow in Canberra. But the showers will clear in Hobart. Showers also clearing in Melbourne. Fine in Adelaide over the next couple of days. A humid change tomorrow in Perth, before showers on Tuesday. The people of Bali are preparing

for yet another unfortunate anniversary. On this day last year, suicide bombers targeted cafes and restaurants, killing 20 people. Australians were among the dead. This weekend, some of the victims' families have returned to Bali to mark the occasion. Seven Correspondent Adrian Brown is also there. Adrian, good morning. What's been planned?

involved in sports is walking around

with huge smile on their face and

the remote control in their hand. Most of us know the name Joanne Lees. The British backpacker made international headlines after apparently escaping a crazed gunman. Now, she's written a tell-all book. For the first time, she reveals how she felt when many suspected she killed her boyfriend Peter Falconio. Take a listen to Joanne Lees reading extracts from the book. I have been portrayed in the most luridly negative way in the press and all but accused of murder. I have been spied on, lied to, and exploited by people pretending to have my best interests at heart. A stranger murdered the man I loved and forever changed the way I would see the world.

Joanne Lees claims she was treated unfairly by the media. So what do we think? It's over to our Weekend All Stars. Glenn Wheeler from Radio 2UE and social commentator Rebecca Le Tourneau, Good morning to you both. Rebecca, why were we so caught up in this case?

It really gripped the nation. There

is always something about women,

potentialally, as murdersers that

just gets into people's psyche. When

you look at Lindy Chamberlain, any

situation where a woman has

are just fascinated. The sad part

person, there was no evidence

yet she was tried by the media in

that way for so long. She says

that way for so long. She says in her book she didn't want to come out

and deny anything or do anything

that might prejudice the

that might prejudice the trial. The man she loved had been murdered and

stolen away from her, she wanted to

see justice done, of course she

didn't speak, but what an incredible

journey. Do you think she was

thee was, he was guilty of something

that happens a lot in this country.

We are hard markers. We expect

We are hard markers. We expect

We are hard markers. We expect people to react a certain way. The

public was generally expecting

public was generally expecting her to react differently. We have

to react differently. We have seen it recently with Terry Irwin, some

saying she spoke too soon, some say

she didn't, the same with Lindy

Chamberlain, we are tough markers

when it comes to a situation like

that. You have to be in that

that. You have to be in that person's shoes. She is only guilty

of not reacting the way Australians

would have liked. She has done

would have liked. She has done the book, she has been paid, she is

book, she has been paid, she is able to get on with the rest of her

to get on with the rest of her life and we should let her. When it comes

to vaccinating children children
