Melbourne and 6 o'clock in

Wellington. This is News for

this Saturday 5 Novemberment

also this hour several

confirmed dead and dozens

injured after a highway

inferno in England. In sport

sweet 16 'Black Caviar'

streaks her rivals yet again. Forecast tomorrow, warm in

the east with isolated

showers and storms and cooler

in the west. The Greek huge

sovereign debt is now causing

huge waves for its Government

as George Papandreou tries to

cling to power. The leader of

the socialist Government

survived a motion by just 3

votes. Many say Papandreou

should resign. Not only is

the debt Greece owes to other

countries mounting so are the

problems facing the country's

leaders. Prime Minister

George Papandreou has given

clues he might resign,

telling the parliament that a

crucial vote of confidence

that his time may soon be

over. The last thing I am

interested in is clidgeing on

to power. I repeat it, I am

saying it overseas, I am not

interested in clinging to

power. I'm not interested if

I am not revoted in. He

survived the vote but now has

to win over the people.

TRANSLATION: The Government

does have a confidence vote

in majority. Papandreou

shocked Europe by proposing a

referendum on the bailout

package. He withdrew it but

not before rebellion from

MPs. He wants a unit Government and support for

the EU bailout. Without it

the country could run out of

money by December. Every day

that the eurozone crisis

chilling effect on the rest continues is a day that has a

of the world economy

including the British

economy. That is the case.

Commentate OARS say Greece

may go to elections early next year but not before

receipt of the crucial money

which will keep it, Europe and potentially the world

economy afloat. For

continuing coverage of the

Greek confidence vote simply

press red on your revote,

look for the dedicated chonle on Sky News Multiview. Europe

was top of the agenda. Leaders though failed to

agree on a plan to get the

economies back on track.

Many had hope the words

Europe solution would be

uttered in unison by world

leaders at the ends of their

talks in Cannes but it was

not to be. Make no mistake

there is more hard work ahead. We need more to

happen in terms of the detail

on the European, actions

putting into place so though

the decisive confidence

building action . Instead

International Monetary Fund they were talking up the

with a number of countries

including Australia

committing to give more

resources to help in times of

crisis. This meeting laid

the basis for IMF resources,

so the IMF can play its

role. But just how they'll

do it that will be up to the Treasurer Wayne Swan and his

finance colleagues when they

meet next month. First and

foremost the eurozone sorting

itself out and then leaders having made this statement

today tasking Finance

Ministers to deal with it.

With fears growing about the

stability of Greece it was

quick to agree on a plan to

keep a watchful eye over

Italy. The G20 parting ways

for another year but looking

forward to meet soon. Our

Prime Minister happy to

announce they will be coming

to Australia in three years

time. This is a fantastic

opportunity tore Australia to

show k's itself to the world

by hosting the most important meeting that the world has

for the global economy. And

we also have a dedicated

channel there on Sky News

Multiview for the full

coverage of the G20 summit including news conferences

with key leader. The Occupy

Sydney protest has been held

without incident today. There

was some doubt the rally

would go ahead after NSW

police attempted to stop the

march after taking legal

action. Sky News reporter is

at the rally. The Occupy

Sydney is back to where it

started. Just outside the

Reserve Bank where protestors

had been cleared by police on

22 October. Today though it's

a much more peaceful affair. The numbers were quite large,

it started off with about 400

people outside the Sydneytown

Hall before moving to Martin

Place. The atmosphere is

quite calm, certainly quite

impassioned not as much as before. There have been speeches from people from

unions as well as other

groups as part of this Occupy

Sydney movement. Certainly

they're a far cry from some

of the movements we've seen

overseas. Organisers told me

they always int ended this to

be peaceful. I think

Australia is very different

to America, we otherwise that

and -- recognise that and

while we were inspired by the

Wall Street pro testers very

quickly we were discussing about issues in Australia,

like what are the reasons

were Occupy Sydney is

relevant to Australia. The

Occupy Sydney movement is a wonderful peaceful movement

that is gaining a lot of

support and inspiration

globally. It's extremely

peaceful. The most dangerous

thing about us is that we

have ideas, that we talk

about change, that we give out information and that

people are warming and seeing that there is injustice in

this world and this injustice

and the fact that the 1% have

so much of the wealth, so

much of the power has too

change. There does remain a

reasonable number of police

here, probably about 20 down

from about 30. They seem to

have this impression that it

is calming down a little bit

more and certainly this has

been one of the more peaceful

but certainly prominent

protests in Sydney of late.

There's more industrial

action in Melbourne.

Victorian nurses will go on

strike and shut down public

hospital beds unless the

Bailleau Government offers a

better pay deal. Nurses and

some doctors in Victoria have

threat rched to close beds

and stop all noncritical

surgery if their wage demands

are not met. Tens of

thousands nurses met

yesterday in Melbourne's

festival Hall where 98% of

them voted to take industrial

action. They're calling for

an 18.5% pay rise over four

years, nearly double the

value of the Government's

offer of 2.5% each year for

four years. They say if their

demands are not met starting

from Thursday they'll take

action. They're starting with

what they call a soft ban on

paperwork. But if the situation continues they

can't guarantee that the

action won't resolve in bed

closures. In the UK up to 30

people have been injured and

several are confirmed dead

after a massive pile-up on a

British motorway. 27

vehicles are reported to be

involved in the crash near Taunton in south-west

England. Four were reported

to be on fire. Dozens of

firefighters tried to free

people tramed in the wreck.

The motorway has been closed

in both directions. Authorities say it could

remain closed for up to 24

hours. Is Bell webster is

there. She filed this report

a short time ago. The defb

and Somerset fire service are

calling this the worst

incident they've had to deal

with in living memory. Around

25 pft 78 last night there

was a multivehicle pile-up

here on the M 5 involving 27

vehicles, 20 cars and 7

lorries, two of those lorries

caught fire. There were

reports at the time of

explosions and large plumes

of smoke being seen all

around this area. Tragically

several people have lost

their lives here tonight. We

don't yet know how many. We

know that at least 35 people

have been injured, many of

those critically with some

life-changing injuries. The M

5 has been closed in both

directions between junk 24

and 25 and the police are

warning it could be 24 hours

or even more than that before

it reopens. That's because in

that time they're going to

have to carry out complete

investigations into exactly what happened here last night

and also they're going to

have to clear a substantial

amount of wreckage and then

carry out repairs to the carriageway. The warning is

that there's going to be significant disruptions to

traffic in the Somerset area.

This large stretch completely

charged to trafficable

vehicles. We understand that

the victims of the accident

that are alive still have all

been removed from the scene

and tragically they are still

having to try and trap a

number of people from

vehicles who we believe have

lost their lives. That's

going on behind us at the

moment. I just show you, this

is the southbound carriageway and all the traffic is

actually facing in the

opposite direction. Police are cars around single file

one at a time. You can see the northbound carriageway

where the accident took place is completely quiet at the

moment. Many of these people

have been trap ed in their

cars now for up ward of five

hours. I understand there

have been all sorts of

incidents among those trap ed

including one pregnant woman

taken to hospital for medical

attention. We know 35 people at least have been injured.

We don't know exactly where

everybody has been taken. Emergency services have taken them wherever beds are available. We do understand

that emergency services have

been brought in especially to

deal with this to the local

hospitals and surrounding

areas. Always I say, at the

moment it's an unfolding

situation and a huge strain

on emergency services.

Americans are taking a stand

against the country as big

bank. More than a million

customers fed up with the

banks billion dollar profits

and astro nomcal fees are

switching to the smaller

banks and credit unions. The

big banks may have retreated

on those debited fees but

hundreds of thousands of

Americans are on the march,

outraged on those fees.

People like small business

owner are mute nearing. I'm

moving my money from my

businesses out of Bank of

America and Chase. Bringing

$3 million worth of miss

business with him. That kind

of money and my level of

business doesn't matter to

them. For others like

Kristian Chris combran it was

that ATM fee. I couldn't

support the principle behind

the $5 fee, because those

people couldn't afford it.

Disgusted Kristian launch ed

bank transfer on Facebook,

now 70,000 people say they're

going to join her. In October

alone credit unions reported

an influx of customers,

raking in over 4.5 billion

dollars in new deposits.

Each bank is going to deal

with it in the best interests

of their customers and shareholders. Tomorrow they

will look to small banks, the

big banks are saying no

matter what happens they'll

have to recoop that revenue

meaning a future with more

fees and probably some more

upset customers. Just coming

The top stories, Greek

Prime Minister George

Papandreou has narrow ly

survive a confidence vote

that stems from a confidence

vote in his own party. He won

the vote after pledging to

step aside if necessary and

seek a cross-party government

to safeguard the bailout

package. Meantime G20 lead

erss have been unable to

agree on a deal to solve the

debt crisis. Australia will

announce the G20, 2014

meeting. The Occupy Sydney

has been held without

incident today. NSW police

intended to stop the march,

but that was dropped after protestors agreed to change

their route. Tomorrow's

weather, warm in the east

with isolated showers and

storms cooler in the west.

It's 17 past #4s, this is

News Day on Sky News. The big

spring carnival wrapping up

at Flemington today. Finally

my wallet can survive with

some safety today. In a

fledge spring with with earlier 'Black Caviar' plaed

it perfect 16 in the Packer

enhancing her reputation as

the fine est sprinter in the

world. The entire country

riding on the back of 'Black

Caviar' as she made it 16

wins from 16 starts. Just 7

in the field for the Patinack

Farm Classic over 1200 m and

all eyes on just one. From

the start she looked a class

above and proved it with ease.

RACE CALLER: The wonder marry

'Black Caviar' down by 3,

'Buffering' but the mighty

champion is going to make it

16 straight. We've never seen

the like of it before. It

was a jaunt for the nation's

very best. The jockey Luke

Nolen admits there's always

pressure to perform. They

expect her to win. You don't

want to disappoint anyone,

because she's got this

magnificent record we really

want to keep it intact.

Train er Peter moody will

make a decision about whether

to head to Perth. We'll get

her home, have a look at her,

see how she pulls up. I'll

have a chat to the owners

6789 probably won't be clear heads tomorrow, probably

Monday morning we'll make a

decision then. Albert the

fat up set the favourites to

win in a photo finish.

RACE CALLER: Albert the fat

and Jimmy are coming. This is

going to be a close photo

finish. Albert the fat and

kings Rose. In the group two

mate remark stakes vintage

gave the trainer.

RACE CALLER: No photo

required today, vintage by

two lengths. Olympic legend

Ian Thorpe's first meet has

finish ed on an underwelling

finish. Far from his favoured

leg Thorpe touched home third

in his heat, not good enough

though to find a spot in

tonight's final. He'll now

look forward to the meet next

in Beijing which follows on

from the short course meet in

Singapore. Better news for

fellow Olympian trick et. As

mentioned both Olympic champs

made their respective returns

in Singapore overnight. With

qualifying for the London

games now just five months

away both know they have

plenty to work on. It's a 25

strong Australian squad in

Singapore, this meet though

is really about just one

man. There is a face we

haven't seen for some time.

Ian Thorpe's come back after

five years away from

competition is big news the

world over. Listen to the

reaction from the crowd.

Having cleared the cobwebs in

the heat everyone wondered

just what Thorpe may do in

the final of the 100

mediumly. Although avoiding

his pet free style events for

now and having sat out the

past five years expectations

remain high. The result

though something of a reality

check for all. Richardson

looking to steal the second.

Richardson has the second,

omar takes the third, Ian

Thorpe finishing in 7th

position from his final --

first final in a long time.

I was doing reel well and then the breast stroke happened. It wasn't so bad

this morning. Look, I don't

expect patience, I expect

people can want to see me do

well, see me do well quickly.

I'd prefer to do that, I'd

prefer not to wait. Given

all the hype around his

comeback, Libby Trickett has

gone ununnoticed. It's her

first big meet since taking a

break back in 2009, if the

result in the 100 m butterfly

the Olympic champ has some

way to go yet as well.

Finishing last in that final,

before placing 6th in the 50

m decider. The career of

Steve Williams hangs in the

balance following an awards

dinner in Shanghai, the 47

year old made a racist slur

against his old boss towards

and could now face

suspension. The relationship

between the pair has now

soured even further. These

days he's caddying for

Australian Adam Scott who won

the Bridgestone invitational

in August. I've got to tell

you I've been a caddie in 33

years, and that's the best

week of my life. The people

here have been absolutely unbelievable and all the

support from the people back

in New Zealand, including my family, that's the greatest

week of my life. But it was

a comment last night that's

got him into hot water.

Williams was asked on stage

to explain a celebration

after Adam Scott's interests,

William's answer that his aim

was to shove it. We'll lead

you to lead the rest. He's

since apologise ed via his

web site saying he now

realises now his commented

can be construed as racist

and that wasn't his intent.

Huge embarrassment for

surfing's world governing

body the ASP. They admitted

that Kelly Slater hasn't yet

sealed a world title. Yeah,

I talked to Kelly this

morning, he thought it was

pretty funny. He said yeah,

it's unfortunate, it is what

it is, we're going to have to

approach the mistake as we

did and go forward. He'll

now have to win one more heat

in San Francisco or the final

event of the year in pipeline to officially be crowned the

champ. The Jets and the Glory

go head to head first, then

Harry Kewell & Co. will try

and do the impossible against

the defending in Melbourne.

The pressure continues to

mount on appealed after drawing with the Melbourne

Heart. The Heart were on

track for their first win of

the season with a Brendan

Hamill strike. Before the

Rhodes made the most of a

free kick. Dilevski, just

one of the players looking to

atone for their errors last

week. And in Wellington Matt

Simon scored a goal and set

up another as the Mariners posted back-to-back

victories. Ireland has

confirmed its international

rules dominance, wrapped up

the series with a 21 point

win against Australia on the

Gold Coast last night. While

the Aussies started well they

were quickly overhauled and

trailed at every break.

Here's an opportunity for an

Ireland goal. It is

beautifully done. Things

then turned nasty after

halftime with a handful of

place sent off. Ireland too

strong in the end, winning by

21. And in Robert Mugabe the

Kangaroos are talking up the

English side they'll tackle

early tomorrow morning in the

4 nations tournament. The

Aussies know they're going to

give them extra steel.

You've got the likes of Chris Heynington playing good football. I think the super

league over here is as strong

as NRL. It's probably one of

the toughest tests we'll come

up against. Greg Inglis

returns for the big match at

Wembley. If the Aussies win

they go straight through to

the finals. Looking to the

Sky weather for you now. The

forecast for tomorrow. In the

north late thunder in Darwin,

mochtly sunny in Brisbane.

This is News Day the top

stories are just ahead as the

occupying movement rallies up outside the Sydney Reserve Bank.

Block

The top stories, Greek

Prime Minister George

Papandreou has narrowly

survived a confidence vote

stemming from a revolts

within his own party. World

leaders have wrapped up talks

at the G20 summit in Cannes

where Europe was top of the agenda. Leaders though failed

to agree on a plan to get the

continent's economies back on

track. Hundreds have marched

in Sydney as part of the Occupy movement despite the

police efforts to cancel the

event. The Sky News weather

forecast for tomorrow, warm

in the east with isolated

showers and storms. Greek Prime Minister George

Papandreou has won a niele

biting confidence vote in

Parliament. 153 MPs voted in

favour of Papandreou, that

was two more votes than he

actually needed to claim

victory. Despite the win it's unclear whether or not he'll

stay on as Prime Minister or

step down to let a new leader

take the reigns. He's vowed

to form a Government of national unit with the

intention to approve the

latest $8 billion package.

Before the vote was held

Papandreou urged voters to

come together for the good of

the country.

TRANSLATION: I want this to bridge our differences

through dialogue, I talked about collaboration before

the elections. I always spoke

about the need to have

national collaboration from

June showing that the last thing that I'm interested in

is clinging on to power. I

repeat it, I'm saying it

overseas, I am not interested

in clinging to power. The

time has come for us to make

a new attempt in good faith

and with a good disposition

on the basis which will

create faith and if through

my actions I can contribute I

will, I will not hesitate to

do what I have to do. Through

my actions I want to

symbolise that yes, we can

make sacrifices for the

general good. Each one of us

can come out of his little

private space and come into a

communal space, into Squares together for the public good.

If we - if I assist for all

of us to realise that yes,

this is a collective

obligation of solidarity to

pay taxes. If through my

actions I can pass a message

that we are not enemies, that

we can look at one another

without hatred, without being polarised with solidarity and

love, if through my actions I

can send a message that this

country really is worth not

being abandoned, so that the new generation does not

emigrate, so that the new

generation can help change

it. And for conditioning coverage of the Greek confidence vote just press

red on your remote and look

for the dedicated channel we

have there on Sky News Multiview. World leader have

voted for Australia to host

the 2014 G20 summit as this year's conference wrapped up

in France. It will bring

world leader and business leaders to Australia at a

time when our economy is the

envy of the world. It will

give Australian businesses a boost. It will give Australia

a central role in shaping the

G20 agenda. The eurozone

debt crisis dominated the two

day talks with leaders

pledging to boost the International Monetary Fund

but failing to agree on a

figure. All of us have enormous interest in Europe

success and all of us will be affected if Europe is not

growing. For full coverage

The Occupy Sydney protest has

been held without incident

today. There were some doubt

that the rally would go ahead

after NSW police attempted to

stop the march by taking

legal action. But that was

dropped after protestors

agreed to change their route.

Sky News reporter Ky Crow is

at the rally. The Occupy Sydney is back to where it

started, just outside the

Reserve Bank where protestors

had been cleared by police on

22 October. Today though,

it's a much more peaceful

affair. The numbers were

quite large, started off with

about 400 people outside the

Sydney Town Hall before

moving to Martin Place where

the numbers have probably

dropped to around 300. The

atmosphere is quite calm,

certainly quite I am

passioned. We've just had a pluscal number, there have

been speech also from people

from unions as well as other

groups as part of this Occupy Sydney movement. Certainly

we're a far cry from some of

the movements we've seen overseas. Organisers have told plea they always

intended this to be peaceful.

We spoke to a few people

involved in the movement

earlier. I think Australia

is a different place to

America, we recognise that.

While we were inspired by the

movement in Spain or the Wall Street protestors or elsewhere, very quickly we

started discussing with

issues in Australia, what are

the reasons where Occupy is

relevant in Australia. The

Ock movement is a wonderful

peaceful movement gaining a

lot of support and

inspiration globally. It's

extremely peaceful. The most

dangerous thing about us is

that we have ideas, that we

talk about change, that we

give out information and that

people are warming and seeing

that there is injustice in

this world and this injustice

and the fact that the 1% have

so much of the wealth, so

much of the power has to

change. There does remain a

reasonable number of police

here, probably about 20 now,

down from about 30, quite a

few vehicles and horses

before they seemed to have some impression it is calm

can down a little bit more.

Certainly this has been one

of the more peaceful, but certainly prominent protests

in Sydney of late. To the UK

and up to 30 people have been

injured and several are confirmed dead after a

massive pile-up on a British

motorway. 27 vehicles are

reported to be involved in

the crash near Taunton in

south-west England. Four vehicles were reported to be

on fire. Dozens of

firefighters battled to free

people, rescuers say up to 10

of those have life-changing

injuries. The motorway has

been closed in both

directions, it could remain

closed for up to 24 hours.

Sky News reporteris bell

Webster is there. The Kevin

and Somerset fire and rescue

service are calling this the

worst incident they've had to

deal with in living memory.

At around 25 past 8 last

night there was a multi

vehicle pile-up, involving 27

vehicles, 20 cars and 7

lorries. We know two of those

lorries caught fire. There

were reports of explosions

and large plumes of smoke

being seen all around this area. Tragically several

people have lost their lives

here tonight. We don't yet

know how many. We know that

at least 35 people have been

injured. Many of those

critically with some

life-changing injuries. The

M 5 has been closed in both directions between junction

24 and 25 and the police are

warning it could be 24 hours

or even more than that before

it reopens, and that's

because in that time they're

going to have to carry out a

complete investigation into exactly what happened here

last night and also they're

going to have to clear a

substantial amount of

wreckage and then carry out

repairs to the carriageway.

So the warning is that there's going to be significant disruption to

traffic in the Somerset area tomorrow. This large stretch

of the M 5 completely closed

to traffic for the

foreseeable. We understand

that the victims of the

accident that are alive still

have all been removed from the scene. Tragically they

are still having to try and

trap a number of people from

vehicles who we believe have

lost their lives. What's

going on behind us at the

moment if I just show you

this is the southbound

carriageway, all the traffic

is actually facing in the

opposite direction. The police at the moment are

turning cars around single

file one at a time. You can

see the northbound

carriageway which is actually where the accident took place

is completely quiet at the

moment. Many of these people

have been trapped in their

cars now for upward of 5 and

a half hours. I understand

there have been all sorts of incidents amongst those people trapped including one

pregnant woman taken to must

grove hospital for medical

attention. We know 35 people at least have been injured.

We don't know exactly where

everybody has been taken, the

emergency services have taken

them to wherever beds are

available. We do understand

that emergency services have

been brought inter especially

to deal with this . As I

said, at the moment it's an

unfolding situation. Sexual

assault allegations

surrounding leading republican presidential

candidate Herman Kane have

intensified. The lawyers have

for the first time detailed

some of the allegations.

Does this guy look worried.

Herman Kane received yet

another enthusiastic

reception. Big applause even

as one of his unnamed

accusers got a chance to tell

her side of the story for the

first time through her

lawyer. Mr Kane knows the

specific incidents that were

alleged. My client filed a

written complaint in 1999

against him specifically and it had very specific

incidents in it. And the

national restaurant

association confirmed today

that the woman filed a formal

complaint in July 1999.

That's one month after Kane

stepped down as the group's

CEO. And it answered a

financial agreement to

resolve the matter with her

shortly after that. The group

has waived its confidentiality agreement

allowing the woman to speak freely about the incident.

She has decided to say

nothing beyond her lawyer's

statements. A new ABC News

Washington pole he is still

in a tie for first place.

Kane said today he looks

forward to getting back to

the real irrus facing the

country. Our ABC News poll

always contained a warning

for him, nearly one in four

republicans said they would

be less likely to vote for

him. One British's couple's

special moment has become an

internet sensation. And we'll

have to bring that report to

you later. Stand by for that

one. It is 20 minutes to five

eastern daylight time. This

is News Day on science. We'll

have all the top stories for

you just ahead. Plus in sport

twaords ex-caddie finds himself in deep trouble.

The top steers, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou

has narrowly survived a

confidence vote stemming from

a revolt within his own party. Papandreou won the

motion 153 votes to 145 after

pledging to step aside if

necessary and seek a

cross-party Government to

safeguard the EU bailout

package. Meantime G20 lieders

have been unable to agree on

a deal to solve the euro's

own debt crisis. At the

conclusion of the taution

Julia Gillard announced

Australia will host the 2014

meeting. The Occupy Sydney

protest has been held without incident today. There was

some doubt the rally would go

ahead after NSW police

attempted to stop the march

by taking legal action.

Tomorrow's weather, warm in

the east with isolated

showers and storms. Cooler in

the west. To sport now with

Jim. What a way to round out the pledgeton spring

carnival. Cracking finish in

the feature. We got to see

that mighty mare go round again. Earlier 'Black Caviar'

made it a perfect 16 in the

Patinack Farm Classic

enhancing her reputation as

the finest sprinter in the

world. The entire country

riding on the back of 'Black

Caviar' as she looked to make

it a perfect 16 wins from 16

starts. No surprise her

opponents were hardly lining

up to take her on. Just 7 in

the field for the Patinack

Farm Classic over 1200 m and

all eyes on just one. From

the start she looked a class

above and proved it with ease.

RACE CALLER: Out she goes,

she's three lengths in front

now, the wonder mare 'Black

Caviar' down by 3, but the

mighty champion is going to

make it 16 straight. We've

never seen the like of it

before. It was a jaunt for

the nation's very best. The

jockey Luke Nolen admits there's always pressure to

perform. They expect her to

win, you don't want to disappoint anyone. Because

she's got this magnificent

record we really want to keep

it intact. Trainer Peter

Moody will make a decision

about whether 'Black Caviar'

will head to Perth for the

Winterbottom stakes. We'll

get her home, have a look at

her, see how he pulls up. I

eel have a chats to the

owner, maybe Monday morning,

we'll make a decision then.

It was' closer race for the

million dollar emrate stakes

as Albert the fat upset the

faitss in a photo finish.

RACE CALLER: Kings Rose has

raced up. Albert the fat

coming, secret admirer on the

inside, this is going to be a

close photo finish. The

queen, Albert the fat and

kings Rose, there's nothing

in it. In group two vintage

produced the best run on the

outside to give trainer Chris

waller two in a row.

RACE CALLER: Vintage, no photo required today comes

right away. Olympic legend Ian Thorpe first swimming

meet in five years has ended

on something of an underwhelming note in Singapore. He returned to the

pool for the heat of the

butterfly today after his 7th

last flight in the 100 m

individual mediumly. Thorpe touched hoax third in his

meet, not good enough to find

a spot in tonight's final.

He'll now look forward to the

next world short course meet

in Beijing. If If I look at

how I felt three months ago

these results are fantastic.

If I take it back to three

weeks ago, they're all right.

I'm happy with the

progression I'm make engine

swimming. Better news today

for libby Trickett from a two

year hiatus, she's qualified

fifth quick est. New Zealand

golf caddie Steve Williams

has landed himself in hot

water after making a racial

slur against former boss

Tiger Woods. Steve Williams

was back out on the golf

course in Shanghai today

watching on as new boss Adam Scott worked his way to the

top of the leader bored.

Williams was perhaps lucky to be there following this

comment about his former boss

Tiger Woods at last night's

caddie awards dinner. The

comment was made as Williams

explained to the shocked

crowd why he celebrated so

openly after winning a recent

tournament with Scott.

Honestly that's the best win

I've ever had. The comment

came following his split with

Woods after almost 12 years

together. However this time

around Williams has apologised writing.

Woods is yet to comment

but some golf journalists

have already made up their

minds. It just shows that he

has an underlying, in his

mind, some underlying racism

that can hardly be denied.

Woods has been the victim of racially insensitive comments

before. When he won the

Masters in 97 he also won the

right to select the dinner

menu. He's driving well,

putting well, he's doing

everything it takes to win,

so you know what you guys do,

pat him on the back, tell him

not to serve fried chicken

next year. Tiger Woods

accepted an apology from

Zollo but the latest could be

a little hard to forgive.

Surfing's world governing bod

he has brought huge embarrassment on itself

today. They announced that

Kelly Slater hasn't, in fact,

sealed a decider . This was

the moment that was meant to

cap off an amazing career

with an 11th world title in

the bag. Dedicated my whole

life since I was a little kid

to surfing, all that work and

effort. It's a really

rewarding feeling. Now

that's all changed. The

situation is Kelly hasn't

officially clinched his 11th

world title. We apoll Giles

to the fans,le let the

sungers and especially to

Kelly. We're moving forward.

It's better that the mistake

was addressed now than later

on. The ASP has blamed a

programming error for the

mix-up. He noticed a comment

on a surfing web site that

questioned how he'd won the

world title when Aussie Owen

Wright still had a

mathematical chance, that was

follow ed up by tweets from Slater saying. Then came

Yeah, I talk to Kelly this

morning, he thought it was

pretty funny. And he said

that yeah, it is unfortunate

but it is what it is, and you

know, we're going to have to

approach the mistake as we

did and move forward. It

means we're likely to see a

repeat of these scenes when

competition resumes in San Francisco. Kelly basically

if lee wins his next heat

he's done. As for Wright's

chances, e He has to win

both events and hope that

Kelly doesn't win any heat

and even sow they're going to

go for a surf often. Now the

ASP knowings they'll have to

be extra careful before

giving Slater the trophy

again. Ireland has confirmed

its international rules dominance. They've wrapped up

the series with a 21 point

win against Australia on the

Gold Coast last night. While

the Aussies started well they

were quickly overhauled and

actually trailed at every

break. Here's an opportunity

for an Ireland goal. It is

beautifully done. Things

turned nasty after half time

with a handful of players

sent from the field. Ireland

too strong in the end though,

winning it by 21. The

Melbourne Victory will out to

end Brisbane's 32 match

unbeaten run in the A-League

tonight. The Jets and Perth

Glory go head to head first then Harry Kewell & Co. will

try to do the impossible in

Melbourne. Last night the

Mariners were too good for

the Phoenix while the pressure continues on Adelaide after it drew with

the Melbourne Heart. The

Heart were with a goal from

Brendan Hamill before the

reds made the most of a free

kick. Just one of the

players looking to atone for

their errors last week. In

Wellington Matt Simon scored

a goal and set up another as

the Mariners posted

back-to-back victories. Still

on football and David Beckham

has refused to reveal where

he'll be playing after his

contract with the LA gall a.m.y expires at the end of

the month. The galaxy beat to

progress to the final at salt

Lake. As for a return to

Europe, Beckham has tight

lipped. I haven't even

thought about what's after

this because right now I'm

concentrating on you know the

moment even us progressing

and getting a championship.

There's intense speculation

the former reel Madrid and

Manchester United star will

end up at Paris St Ger main

and the English football

association will appeal Wayne

Rooney's three match ban that

will keep him out of the

European championships. The

Aussies are the red hot

favourites for the match

against the old enemy at

Wembley. Forward Luke Lewis

says there's plenty to work

on following their tournament opening win against New

Zealand. I think we've still

got a lot to learn as a team,

as a group, as individuals.

We got off to a pretty good

start. New Zealand come back

at us pretty tough last week.

We were under the pump there

for a while. Lucky to come

away with a couple of tries

and get the win. We're not

overly confidence, looking

forward to tomorrow's game.

Inglis returns for the clash.

Also a couple of former NRL

stars in their side. It will

be a good one. Looking at the

Sky News weather now. Cloud

stretching from the Northern

Territory to South Australia triggering thunderstorms.

Cloud over Queensland and

NSW. Another trough is

generating showers and

storms. So to the forecast now for tomorrow.

And Sky national news is coming up with the top

stories of day, including the

highway inferno that's

claimed several lives in the UK.
