I feel almost naked without I feel almost naked without a feather. The Wallabies have had a lacklustre win over Italy on their European Tour. Australia beat the home side 25-18 but the visitors were unconvincing. It was Australia's first away win in 12 months. Matt Rogers crossed the line first for Australia. COMMENTATOR: Could be something on here. Larkham, with a dispatch to Rogers and a try has come. Stirling Mortlock and Guy Shepherdson also scored tries for Australia. Wallaby coach John Connolly says despite the win, his side kicked poorly and gave Italy too many opportunities. New Zealand has thrashed Great Britain in their Tri-Nations clash in Wellington. New Zealand beat the visitors by 30 points to keep their Tri-Nations' defence alive. The Kiwis scored six tries to one. Half-back Stacey Jones was named man of the match with five conversions. But it was a fiery first half that had everyone talking. COMMENTATOR: Talk about, talk about firing up the contest. All hell has broken loose. Rival centres Steve Matai and Keith Senior were sin-binned for fighting. In the NBL, Cairns has beaten New Zealand 113-99. In other games overnight the South Dragons' good form continued under coach and captain Shane Heal with a win over Townsville.

Melbourne beat Brisbane and the Hawks were too good for West Sydney while Perth has enjoyed a rare win over the Sydney Kings. The Wildcats trailed by 14 points at half-time, but powered back in the second half to take the match 90-81.

In the A-League Adelaide has had a win over Queensland Roar in Brisbane. Adelaide United beat Queensland 1-0. They're now five points clear in second place on the table. There are two more races in Round 11 of the V8 Supercars in Tasmania today. Holden's Rick Kelly took the series lead during yesterday's opening race. Former leader Craig Lowndes lost sight of the top spot after getting caught in a dust cloud when Jamie Whinchup's car hit the wall. Jason Bright took the chequered flag.

We send out a big congratulations to

Indeed they do. Great news. Now to Sunday's weather. Mostly fine in Cairns today. Brisbane 28. High cloud in Sydney, with a top of 31 degrees. A late shower in Canberra. Hobart, rain developing and 18.

Wet weather also for Melbourne. A few showers in Adelaide. Perth, fine and 24. And Darwin, a late storm and a very warm 40 degrees. And looking at the extended forecasts - Brisbane can expect a late storm tomorrow. The chance of a thunderstorm in Sydney, before fining up on Tuesday. Canberra a few showers, tending to fine weather. Windy with showers in Hobart. And Darwin can expect storms tomorrow and Tuesday. Let's take a look at what's making papers around the country. And the passing of television personality Belinda Emmett is dominating front pages. Queensland's 'Sunday Mail' focuses on the great love story that was the marriage between Rove and Belinda. The headline reads, "The love of my life is gone". The Sunday Tasmanian says she was too young. And, at 32, many would agree. That's what's so unfortunate about this. But as Simon told us in the news the Cancer Council says this should serve as a wake-up call for young women to get checked regularly.

I imagine it will. When Kylie was

diagnosed, remember, the screenings

went up something like 60 percent.

There was very definitely a silver

lining to that terrible, terrible

news. We got an e-mail from Lisa,

Perth's 'Sunday Times' also dedicates several pages to tributes for the well-loved actress and singer. We've received some messages on our soapbox about this, too.

If you would like to e-mail in this

morning with any messages for Rove

or their families, we would be very

happy to read them out. In other news in the national papers this morning, News Limited is running a story about sickies apparently, they may become a thing of the past. The tradition of chucking a sickie is being crushed,

by a team of savvy nurses who field calls from employees looking to take a day off work. The way it works is rather than reporting to a manager, staff are instead required to call a 24-hour hotline to report their alleged illness. They have to explain symptons, how long they've been sick, how severe it is, and what they're taking. If the nurses think the staff are fibbing, they speak up. Short-term absence rates have been cut by up to 45% in companies using the service.

You can't put anything past the

savvy nurses. I was reading the

story in the paper this morning

We'll tackle that when we return. Thanks to Zyrtec, allergy days can get turned around fast.

When things pop up in life, it's good to be with MBF. Well, can you imagine finding out the children you thought were yours, were, in fact, someone else's? That's what happened to Liam Magill, who discovered he wasn't the father of two of his children. So Mr Magill sued his former wife for deceiving him. But after initially winning the case the High Court this week dismissed the claim. Well, joining us to discuss the implications of the decision is Mr Magill's current partner, Cheryl King from Melbourne. Also, Barry Williams from the Lone Fathers Association in Canberra, Men's Rights Agency in Brisbane. and Sue Price from

Good morning to you all. Cheryl, we'll start with you.

You look like the Brady Bunch at the moment. This was obviously a devastating result for Mr Magill?

Absolutely. I think that he has been

dealt a very, very unjust decision

by the High Court. I know that the

community is actually totally

outrageed by what has happened last

Thursday, the 9th November. We call

it our 911 as a matter of fact.

has been a 7 and a half year fight and I think they have made a very

bad decision and it sends all the

wrong messages to people who enter

wrong messages to people who enter a contract of marriage and it is all

about decency and honesty within any

rezship. Sure, I think whilst we, many

many of us would agree with you

there, it is unfortunate that the

High Court is receiveing the back

lash on this. They are quite

constraining by the limits of our

current law. Will you be petitioning parliament instead

laws. This is theany only way this

particular issue can be

are a lot of men who are

of the children they are raising

emotionally and financialally.

Parliament needs to address the

issue and create laws that will

address this terrible problem. Okay,

Sue, we will move to you. Your group

supports fathers in similar

circumstances. What water your

reaction to the verdict? We were

disappointed, but it wasn't

unexpected. You have referred to the

restrictions that were in the case,

in that they decided to

in that they decided to limit the proof of deceit to the birth

certificate issue only. The High

Court had the ability to right the

wrong that has been committed to

Liam Magill, they chose not

Liam Magill, they chose not to. To remain in the olden days, virtually.

They have shown they have become fossilised in

seeking a solution in a commercial

sense to prove deceit rather than

within the family. As you say, Sue,

the High Court was restricted to

question of deceit, and they said that perhaps they thought in fact it

was the wrong action that had been

bought, really, the deceit could

only be proved if he had formally

asked if the children were his.

Barry, what sort of precedents does

this set? It sets a precedent

this set? It sets a precedent where you can say, you forget about your

marriage vows, they don't

marriage vows, they don't mean nothing. If you are woman you can

have an affair, and don't worry

about it, we won't punish the real

person who fathers your children, we

will make your current husband pay

and they sign an affidavit to say

they will be honest and truthful and

decision throws a clear message

you can deceive your partner and

you can deceive your partner and as I said, you can have children to

someone else but we make your

great bearing on paying

resumes to say how can you force people just

name on the birth certificate,

courts have said Mr Magill is

entitled to be recompensed, he

wasn't entitled to compensation

wasn't entitled to compensation for his own emotional trauma? That's

correct. There are problems in that,

if I can jump in here. Apparently,

Liam needed to go to the Family

Court to prove the claim that he

wasn't the father and get the to have wasn't the father and get the order

to have the money recovered, but

what I fail to see is why

what I fail to see is why the Child Support Agency did want pursue the

biological father once they knew it

wasn't Mr Magill. They failed in

their duty of their duty of care to the family

very badly. I feel he is entitled to

compensation. If the High Court had

been a little braver instead of

kwifrbing a wishy-washing judgment,

they could have made recommend

they have obviously found. Cheryl,

where to now? Can I correct one

thing? We did apply to the Family

Court to have

was paid for the two youngest

children returned and refunded to Mr

the Child Support Agency, but they

don't obey court orders. Sue Price

and Barry will probably be fairy

well aware of the fact that they are

a law unto themselves. We did do the

appropriate steps to have the money

refunded to Liam through the Family

Court and the Child Support Agency

did gnaw not do this. Perhaps there

is a bureaucratic problem, a gap in

the law that needs legislating,

still plenty to go in the fight. Can I just say one

But after the break the one and only Mark Riley brings us this week's Riley Diary. You're watching Weekend Sunrise, on the Seven Network. Oh, yeah! Oh, I'm feeling it. Pictionary Mania. An umbrella! Yes. Ooh, I like where this is going. It takes playing Pictionary to a whole new level. of drawing, directing and doing.

In In just a moment, a rather lusty Riley Diary. But right now, let's check the news headlines with Simon. Good morning again, everyone. A NSW police officer has died after being hit by a car on the State's Central Coast. The 41-year-old was on patrol on the F3 at Somersby when he was struck. It follows yesterday's death of a Queensland policeman,

in a crash on the NSW north coast. Teenage mums will soon be forced to claim the baby bonus in instalments in a Federal Government crackdown on the $4,000 payment. It follows claims

women under 18 are wasting the money on plasma televisions and holidays. And pop princess Kylie Minogue has made a stunning return to the stage at her homecoming concert in Sydney. It was Kylie's first performance since she was diagnosed with breast cancer 18 months ago.

And making sports headlines this morning, the Wallabies have notched up their first win on the European tour by beating Italy 25-18. It was an unconvincing win, though. Italy led by two points at half-time but Australia managed to hold on for a win. New Zealand has beaten Great Britain 34-4 in the Tri-Nations in Wellington. The Kiwis scored six tries to one. Rival centres Steve Matai and Keith Senior were sin-binned after going head-to-head in the first half. And in basketball overnight the Perth Wildcats have beaten the Sydney Kings by nine points. The Wildcats won 90-81. Weatherwatch this Sunday. High cloud in Sydney, with a top of 31. Hobart, rain developing. Wet weather also for Melbourne. A few showers in Adelaide. Fine in Perth. And we'll have more news and sport at 9 o'clock.

New Zealand takes on Australia in

the final of the Tri Nations. Yes. A

big match, 25 November, also a White

Ribbon day. They have dead Kateed it

to the White Ribbon day. Antidomestic violence. Well, let's go to Canberra now.

And it was an emotional week for our pollies, full of highs and lows. Throughout it all the PM kept the press gallery entertained with one choice phrase. Here's the Riley Diary. It was a funny old week in Canberra, that started with this rather odd observation from the Prime Minister. I'm concerned about the health of the Federal Coalition and I can report it remains a very strong and lusty beam.

Lusty? A political party? Now this is lusty. And this...

# Take my breath away. And definitely this... # Happy birthday to you # But this? And this? Not this. Good morning. Lusty? Not so much. Lusty... ..and nup. Still, it wasn't lust that really threaten the Government this week, but another of the seven deadly sins. Anger.

And the worst kind of anger - voter anger, with the Reserve Bank announcing the eighth consecutive interest rate rise and the fourth since the last election when the Prime Minister now famously asked - Who do you trust to keep interest rates low? Labor is now using that in ads attacking the PM. AD: Who do you trust? (repeats) Who do you trust? AD: Who do you trust? Kim Beazley trusts that this will bring the Government a whole truckload of trouble, as they look towards the next election. And, a new notch goes on the end of the nose with this week's announcement. I don't like this increase. I am very conscious that it will cause pain to quite a number of people. But he did make it sound like the interest rate rise we had to have. In a booming economy, from time to time, interest rates will be adjusted and that is what has happened. John Howard has got what he wanted. He wanted an interest rate rise and he's got it. In a democracy,

the Prime Minister in a generic way gets blamed for everything. But you may also have noticed that prime ministers are pretty quick to take credit when things are going well. And things weren't going well for John Howard this week by any stretch of the imagination, which might account for a couple of the uncharacteristic comments he made. Take this answer to whether he'd lobby his colleagues

in the House of Representatives, against the embryo cloning bill that went through the Senate this week. Quite frankly on these sorts of issues, the last person they're going to take any notice of is me. Now we realise he was being a bit playful, but isn't that a curious observation for a PM to make about his own Party? The last person they're going to take any notice of is me. Who? Their leader? (scoffs) Why would they listen to him? And there was still confusion about that other comment he made earlier in the week. Could you explain what you meant the other day when you said that the Coalition was in a lusty frame of mind? Lusty? What I mean by that is that it's... (Laughs)

I know, it's getting it, I know. I think what I'm really saying is that it's made up of a group of independently minded men and women who aren't afraid to express their points of view. So when you said lusty, you didn't mean 'lusty'? I know it's getting it, yeah, I know. No, I wasn't particularly getting at that. Thank goodness for that.

I like his definition of lusty,

independently minded men and woman

who aren't scared to express their view

view point. They do say

view point. They do say Canberra is

a hot bed. Mark can't be with us, he

If you need some relationship advice, then you're in the right place. Today in the Counselling Corner we're going to help out a number of viewers who'd like some expert feedback. Anne Hollonds from Relationships Australia is standing by to take your calls. Good morning, Anne. First we have Cameron on the phone. What's your question for Anne?

Hello. Partly just, my wife and I,

your relationship, isn't

your relationship, isn't it? I guess it

it does happen from time to time. We

are in a long-term relationship, we

can find ourselves feeling we are no

longer in love with our partner and

perhaps falling for someone else. I

think you need to listen to what

you haven't left it too late and you

is Kylie with sport. The Wallabies have had a win over Italy on their European Tour but it was nothing to write home about.

Australia beat the home side 25-18 but the visitors were unconvincing. The Wallabies scored three tries and managed to hold off Italy, who had led at half-time.

We gifted Italy a lot of chances. We kicked poorly.

So a little bit of experimentation is no excuse for some of the mistakes. It was Australia's first away win in 12 months. New Zealand has had an easy, but spiteful, win over Great Britain in their Tri-Nations clash in Wellington. New Zealand beat the visitors by 30 points, to keep their Tri-Nations defence alive.

There have been widespread reports many were having children simply to receive the $4,000. So, from next year, the Government will no longer provide the bonus as a lump sum to teenagers. Instead, it will arrive in 13 instalments. But will that solve the problem? Let's ask our Weekend All Stars Glenn Wheeler from Radio 2UE, and social commentator Rebecca Le Tourneau.
