He said if more stimulus is required we'll provide it. He is particularly worried about the job market so investors celebrated tat. China released manufacturing data on Saturday and that wasn'toverly positive so we saw the Aussie dollar lose almost half a cent on the back of that.

Great sendoff for the guys last night, particularly our mate Nathan Hindmarsh, but the Eels and Dragons, 33,000 rr a record turn out. A great send -- 42,000. Let's go to Grant, with the weather. The Wedder? Yes, hard to get the mouth going first time in the week, particularly when you are out in the cold like we are at the moment. But last week, gee we at the moment. But last week, gee at the moment. But last week, gee we said we were senseing the change in the season and you can feel the taste of summer on its way and the fresh mango or whatever the smell is that reminds you of your childhood. We thought let's get active. We've never been to Penrith White Water, we are standing on the deck, where the water flows through the course, hoping they don't open the gates yet because you can fill an Olympic swimming pool in 50 seconds with the flow of water that comes through, it is astonishing. Until I looked at the temperature gauge in the car on the way in. There have been records set in many places which makes pulling the shorts on and getting wet ridiculous. We are talking minuses overnight, right around this area. Let's look at the forecast now. Sunrise weather to you by Claratyne. Don't know whether you saw much of the Olympic competition where people often get flipped over and wet and very drenched in these conditions, just up the road, Jessica later, Canberra, coldest September just up the road, Jessica Fox, night last night, ever, ever! Minus 7 for Goulburn. Just over there. Canberra just over there. Get in the water. Coldest night in 17 years for Sydney. You picked today. Shrinkage. See you in halfa. OK, Grant. Coming up this Sunrise - did the Church of Scientology audition wives for Tom Cruise? And a breakthrough in the hunt for a rogue Afghan soldier who gunned down three Australian soldiers last week. But next, inside the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. New details on the terrorist's last moments from the first-hand account by one of the US Navy SEALS. Find out how Redspot is positivly different to the big rental car companies. Go with the underdog and save. The publisher of an insider account of the US Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden says it will be released this week, as scheduled. That's despite the Pentagon warning of possible legal action. More details of the raid have been made public in excerpts from the book 'No Easy Day'. NBC News reporter Mike Viqueira has more. The newly released excerps come just days after the days after the Pentagon threatened legal action against the author legal action against the author. But he says it doesn't reveal secrets thatwit put current Navy SEALs at risk. He details the most famous raid. He writes. He stresses there was still no way to know for sure if Osama bin Laden was inside. We were now... Buts we now know, it was almost a bad night for the seelz as one of the choppers, the one carrying Owen crashed on landing inside the compound. Mike Viqueira reporting there. As we know, no-one was injured in that soft crashlanding and the SEALS carried out their mission. Ahead on Sunrise - are we a nation of spenders or savers? And what does it mean for our financial health? Plus, a ranga reunion. The festival of redheads, where being ginger is a winner. The pet names women love to hate.

So get down, down to Coles for great $1 prices.

it's good, it's good. Redheads of the world have united at an annual festival of ginger-haired guys and gals in the Netherlands. Carrot tops from all over the world came in their hundreds, including many Aussies. Our PM is quick to celebrate rangas but no word on whether she was invited to this event. Looks like the little girl out of 'Brave'. Making headlines this morning - the arrest of a man suspected of helping an Afghan soldier shoot dead three Australian soldiers last week. It comes as Australian troops suspend the training of Afghan recruits. 'The Daily Telegraph' says it's to allow checks on trainees to try to weed out any rats in the ranks. The 'Sydney Morning Herald' has a slightly different spin, saying US forces have suspended their training. Both papers say it's been prompted by attacks on allied forces, including last week's killing of three diggers. We'll get more on this suspension later in Sunrise. Isn't it just the most tragic photo on the front of many papers, with the five faces on top of the trucks and everyone lining up, really sad. Charlotte Dawson has spoken candidly about the cyber attack that nearly killed her. Last week, the TV presenter was admitted to hospital after being targeted by an online hate campaign. So, the aim was to die? I believe so, I was very drunk but I was extremely distraught. It just triggered that feeling of helplessness and, as I said, they got the better of me and they won. The 46-year-old also revealed she's battled with depression for 10 years and suggests she's tried to take her life before. And, this morning, Twitter says it won't take action against trolls. The social network refuses to police abusive messages posted on its site. A spokesperson says: What do you think? Does Twitter have a responsibility to police online bullying? I suppose we were talking this morning where does it start and where does it stop? You read newspapers all day on line, read the comments on articles afterwards and people are very vicious attacks. How do you knock on everyone's door and police it? Make sure people use their real name, a start, make them accountable could be a start. Now, apparently, most women hate being called "Babe". A survey has found the most hated pet names for females. Topping the list of cringe-worthy terms of endearment - babe, sweet cheeks, snookums, baby doll and baby girl. Also making the list - ducky, pudding, sugar lips, pumpkin and sexy pants. Don't call me pudding.

Instead, women prefer their partners to call them gorgeous, beautiful, lovely, love or darling. We want to hear your embarrassing pet names and do you agree that "babe" is the worst? Let us know. Girls? I wouldn't have thought. Snookms must be up there. Pud sg not up there. None of us are pet namely type people? My common one with Lib, " one with Lib, "Is yes, dear." one with Lib, "Is yes, dear.". We've all gut that one. Our Sports Minister Kate Lundy was a lonely sight as rowed the Olympic course in London alone overnight. Senator Lundy was paying up after losing a bet with her British counterpart Hugh Robertson on which which country would win more medals at the London Games. She rowed the 2,200m of the Eton Dorney course dressed in a Team GB shirt. The sports ministers put their rivalries aside at the end to share in some bubbly. That is just salt into the wound. Good on her for doing it. That's a fun bet. Good on her for being a good sport. Got to pay the bets,

It's 6:30, here's Nat with the news. A man suspected of helping the rogue Afghan soldier who shot dead three Australia diggers has been arrested by Coalition troops. Last week's insider murder of the diggers has led to special operations troops suspending training of Afghan special forces under a NATO ban. The ban comes as the bodies of five Australians killed in Afghanistan last week return home. Hundreds of troops farewelled the diggers at an emotional ceremony in Tarin Kowt. Governor-General Quentin Bryce has visited a refugee camp in Jordan where thousands of refugees from neighbouring Syria have sought refuge. After a ceremonial welcome by King Abdullah,

in the capital Amman, Ms Bryce went to the Zaatari refugee camp which is now home to 25,000 refugees. I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to sit down and talk to women with their little children playing around to get a true picture for myself of what it's like for them and that's what I will take home to Australia. The UN has issued an international call to donors for more money to cope with the refugee crisis. Police are hunting the killer of a man who was bashed to death as he walked home from the pub in Sydney's south-west on the weekend. Residents of Macquarie Fields have told police they heard a row between two groups of men just after 2:00am on Sunday morning.

When officers arrived they found two men unconscious. The one on the left pushed him over and kicked him then the one on the right proceeded to kick him even more. They then left and I looked out to see whether that chap got up and he didn't get up. A 39-year-old man died. A 42-year-old man is in a stable condition. Latest figures show retail sales have improved after a bleak two years

The Deloitte Access Economics survey found retail sales over the last six months had been outstanding with sales up by 2.8% in the first half of the year. However, its report, titled 'Shopping with a Frown' says consumers are still worried about the economy and job security. It said retailers had been supported by real wages growth, interest rate cuts, and federal government handouts.

Antivenom for the world's deadliest spider is running low and experts are calling on the public to face their fears. Staff at the Australian Reptile Park at Gosford, north of Sydney, need help catching funnel-web spiders so they can milk them to create the antivenom. "If you see a dangerous animal, leave it alone

"and then it will leave you alone and you won't have any run-ins." But it is really important that we turn to the community to actually obtain our funnel webs. It's the most productive way for us to get these animals. It takes 70 milkings to make one dose of antivenom. OK... So you saying kids get out and catch funnel-webs? No, we're not funnel-webs? No, we're not saying kids. Just use the Bug Catcher? Yes. Gotia. The Dow finished up 70 points on Saturday, our time. A

Beretts has all your sport. Whaought good time of the year. The Dragons were too good for the Eels as both teams played their last match of the 2012 season. The 29-8 score wasn't ideal for retiring Eels legend Nathan Hindmarsh but the back rower still gave his fans plenty to cheer about, slotting a penalty goal right on full-time. COMMENTATOR: Nathan Hindmarsh, you champion. The Tigers and Port have recorded the first draw of the AFL season with both teams kicking 16 goals and 10 behinds

But it was good news for Richmond's Jack Riewoldt who slotted six to win his second Coleman Medal as the games leading goal kicker. soured Carlton coach Brett Ratten's last game at the helm, winning 106-91. Australia's Mark Webber has finished sixth in the Belgian Grand Prix overnight. Britain's Jenson Button dominated the field

And our Paralympians have continued their stellar performance in London Australia now sits third on the medal table, one behind Team GB. OK, let's see how the footy tips went.

I think he could be part Eskimo to be surviving in these conditions. conditions. Look at that fog. For eastern Australia, quite a front through Saturday and Sunday, for most states up the eastern seaboard. Behind the front is a high. With a high you get beautiful blue skies but really cold nights. It is why we are getting so many places recording really brisk temperatures this morning, even up to South-East Queensland, places like Roma, 12 morning, even up to South-East degrees below average. Huge drops overnight but lovely days. That is the price you pay with a high. Let's look at the forecast now. Sunrise weather to you by Claratyne.

A large high is keeping much of central and eastern Australia clear and calm, leading to a cold night. A cold front is bringing light showers and a weak cooler change to Tasmania. A trough in the west is triggering a few thundery showers over southern inland Western Australia.

Why we're all being told to go for a financial health check. The answer, next.

many of you will be doing a seasonal spruce-up of the home. It's also a good time to get your finances in order. Australians are being encouraged to give their money matters a check-up

as part of MoneySmart week. Research done as part of the national initiative found that 58% of respondents have at least one financial goal they are working on. 60% with dependents either don't have or don't know if they have life insurance or whether it is enough. About a third of people, yet to retire, have more than one super fund.

A little less than half are regular savers, while 20% don't save at all. And 58% have debts other than their mortgage. Paul Clitheroe is a finance expert and the chairman of the Australian Government Financial Literacy Board, the organisation behind the initiative. He joins me now. Big fellow, Big fellow, how are you? Good, indeed. How do you start? You and have been banging on for ages about this. The whole reason behind money indeed. How do you start? You and I

smart stuff, the world is complicated. We get drawn into complexity but the issue for me and most people, I am most people, I am spending less than I earn. Going to the money smart web site and doing site and doing a budget, I know it sounds ridiculously simple but all too often we make money overly complex. Look at the results we saw there. What is the primary driver of debt problems? Spending and earning. Let's get our spending under control. We all bang on about Government debt, which, by global comparisons isn't much. The big issue in Australia is

issue in Australia is household debt, that is our debt we can do something about and we got to bring it under control am People are far more excited about what is happening in Greece, the cost of the mortgage, two in three people can't tell me the interest rate on their mortgage. If they can tell me what they're paying on their mortgage, I say get on to a on to a free web site, you would be a couple of a thousand dollars a year better off People get their tax refunds now, is it a good place to start saving? Millions of Australians will, get a chance to look at your budget and look at your assets and liabilities and use it to knock off credit card debt, knock off credit card debt, pay off the mortgage. Something sensible. Tips? The biggest issue is planning, David. I do find, doing a money health check is a great idea. It is about a budget. We are seeing huge weaknesses in things like insurance. Pretty obviously, are you getting the government benefits you might entitled to. And the thing that the government benefits you might be drives me nuts, drives me nuts, Mr Kochie, you probably have, over half of Australians do not have a will. That is an unmitigated disaster. You might be dead but for the whole bunch of people you leave behind, it is a shemozzle. Lib and I updated ours last week. Just don't write a will and leave it for 20 years. Keep going back and going back and checking because circumstances change. Mate, good to see you, great tips. For more tips, head to our web site. I'm in heaven, talking money tips. You are in heaven.

heaven. Ringyan Chojnacki is the cross dresser identified by police and rob adservice station just over a week ago. Sunrise Melbourne correspondent Nick Etchells joins us now. Nick, what did Ryan Chojnacki have to say? He said this all started out as a bit of a joke, clearly. It bit of a joke, clearly. It was much more serious than that. When released this footage, they more serious than that. When police they were looking for someone wearing fake nails, blue eye shadow, released this footage, they said

red slip lipstick, a black dress and stockingwise a manly voice. They released the footage and made the arrest a shorttime later. We arrest a shorttime later. Knok to Ryan exclusively yesterday and he said amongst other things, the getup arrest a shorttime later. Knok to

looked better before the footage was taken. Prior to that, you could barely notice, you can barely it was me. You wouldn't have even thought it was me. You can barely notice, you can barely notice

see it is me, there is no denying that. He also said bazaarly, that is thought it was me. You can clearly

not not a wig but extensions, he clearly had out. One of the people to see the footage after police released it was his mother and needless to say she is none too impressed. My first thought was my God, it is Ryan, it is a big shock. You can there are serious conversations had in that household. Certainly, what is a big shock. You can imagine

is the next step in is the next step in this case? Two other people were arrested as well as Ryan. All o three will appear in court in December. It is worth noting the woman behind the counter in this service station was in her mid30s and hasn't worked since. It has obviously been very distressing for her. They will be back in the courts in a couple of months. Alright, stay Alright, stay in touch on that one. Thank you for your time.

The shocking claims about the end of their relationship are next.

What do you expect from your car insurance company? WOMAN: I'd like a tailor-made price. (CAR ALARM BLARES)

with half the fat of red meat and a valuable source of iron. Get some pork on your fork. Seal has hit out at Heidi Klum, revealing an insight into the possible cause of their split. Showbiz editor Nelson Aspen has all the details.

She's the rotter. Allegedly? Did Heidi cheat on Seal? No! A little semantics they play. I semantics they play. I guess it define depends on how you define cheating. Good on you. We cheating. Good on you. We are getting into the presidential definition are we? Well, you know, you have good-looking people working for you in your household could be trouble. Ask Jude law for you in your household there Robin Williams. And Seal thinks could be trouble. Ask Jude law or Heidi may have gotten too close to the body guard. I would have thought, you know, whilst I didn't expect any better from him,

until we separated at least before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were. But I guess you all have the answer you were looking for for the past seven months. Oh! For the record, Heidi says the relationship with the body guard was strictly professional while she was with Seal. Like his turn of phrase 'Fornicate 'Fornicate wg had help'. It is 'Downton Abbey'. It doesn't leave 'Fornicate wg had help'. It is very grey area. As far Seal is concerned, no. Maybe there would 'Downton Abbey'. It doesn't leave a

no. Maybe there no. Maybe there could be a movie in it? No, there already was. Moving on, and it looks like Geri Halliwell and Russell Brand's romance may have fizzled out already?

The Prime Minister ready to announce the biggest overhaul of school funding in 40 years. Australian troops stop training Afghan recruits while they weed out potential rogue soldiers.

She discharged herself from hospital to talk to the media and expose the Twitter trolls who have been urging her to die. Sometimes, especially if people are wanting you to kill yourself, and you are somebody who has previously tried to end your life, it is very, very easy to feel like that is exactly what you want to do. Dawson's battle with the abusers has sparked calls for more to be done to stamp out hate-filled messages on social media. The Federal Government will today announce details of its new school funding regime.

Public schools are set to be the big winners from the overhaul, based on recommendations from the Gonski review. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for us to support the needs of every kid in every classroom.

It was a day for rangas to rejoice - redheads who normally stand out in a crowd felt right at home in the Dutch city of Breda on the weekend. A festival of redheads brought together men, women and children with flame-coloured hair from all over the world. Prime Minister Gillard was too busy to attend but there were plenty of redheads from Australia. It's a weird feeling to not stand out - it's good, it's good. And despite redheads having a reputation for a fiery temper, the day passed in a very peaceful fashion. Ahead this Sunrise - kiss and tell. The girl who claims she's locked lips with Prince Harry as he let loose in Las Vegas. I thought it was only a kiss? That's alright. Hint, hint.

Riewoldt stepped up to see his side come agonisingly close to a season-ending win but after four quarters the sides couldn't be separated.

weather. Grant is feeling a bit chilly. I thought you were going to Absolutely gorgeous, as is the

say absolutely gorgeous, like Grant. I know there is a lot of internal love. Mel, love this. We loved the Sydney Olympics because there are so many things to be thankful many things to be thankful for, I know we are fresh off the back of London but think of the great memories and venues? Penrith white water stadium is one that stands the test of time. Not only is it a world-class facility where you can experience white water rafting, but 30,000 people come a year, whether it it is a Father's Day gift or guys wanting to get the adrenaline experience in a controlled environment, close to a city but we are inside the venue, as in, inside the course and those big whopping valves are about to open up. They pump out 14 tonnes of water a second. It can fill an Olympic swimming pool in 55 seconds. It would fill a regular glass of water in about 0. in about 0.0000000 1 of second. Careful. Get out, quick. It is about to open. Go over this way. to open. Go over this way. Only got 50 seconds. I can't get up! It's a bit hard to get up. OK. Don't leave me! Cue! Cue the water. This is going to be good. Now, the course, it is kind of yep, right to go. (siren sounds) (siren sounds). My God! It's like an air raid! It is dangerous.

We are talking storms today, potential wind,

potential wind, getting stronger as the days goes on. Yeah, no, we wouldn't have survived that Trev. So count ourselves lucky. It is going to be a great venue to go and conquer. We are going to get on board. We have got cameras, we got got Jess Fox coming down and also a good case of hypothermia. See you in half an hour. with the Prime Minister finally due to announce the Government's response to the Gonski review today. The old arrangements are tipped to go in favour of a new baseline cash grant plus extra funding for disadvantaged, rural and disabled students. But any new money isn't expected to start flowing until at least 2014. The Gonski report was handed down six months ago in almost 40 years. Joining me now from the Australian Education Union is Mary Bluett. Mary, you've been waiting for this day for a long time. What are you expecting the Prime Minister to announce? We're not expecting too much detail. Because there is a lot of discussion that has to go with the, between the Commonwealth and the state governments about how to fund this. But what we are expecting today is that the Prime Minister will confirm that they are committed implementing the major recommendations that the Gonski that they are committed to

review and as you said, that mean as guarantee of a base funding rate guarantee of a base funding rate but additional funding to ensure those students who have additional needs, children from disadvantaged backgrounds, non-English speaking, indigenous, disability, it costs more to give them the education they need and this funding formula will recognise that and that will be a particular boost for particular boost for government schools who look after schools who look after these children. What is your verdict? Is it fairer it fairer than the old system. it fairer than the old system.? Undoubtedly it is fairer. It has been 40 years in the making. A system that actually guarantees the funding is targeted towards the need of each child, so that they can reach their potential. And the country like Australia, we can afford that sort afford that sort of a sitsm. In fact, -- that sort of a system. I don't think we can not invest because it is the best economic and social investment we can make in the future of this country. The good thing, it is will be more of a national system so if families move interstate, kids won't be disadvantage said. That's a good thing. But the reform is expected to not kick in until 2020 not kick in until 2020 before they are fully in place. Surely we can do it quicker than that? Is it good enough? Look, I think there is disaappointments is it is is going to take that long. But ultimately, the benefits are going to outweigh that time delay. We would hope it could have been implemented within, three to four years but if we are to wait for a system wait for a system a little bit longer that delivers and meets the needs of every Australian child, then we will be there. Alright, Mary. It sounds like it is a step in the right direction. Thank you explaining it to us. the right direction. Thank you for There's been a breakthrough in the investigation into the shooting deaths of three Australian diggers by a rogue Afghan soldier. An insurgent leader, who allegedly helped the shooter, has been arrested. The killings have prompted Australian and other international forces in Afghanistan to suspend training of local recruits. We're joined now by our Foreign Affairs editor, Dr Keith Suter. Keith, the suspension is to allow the re-vetting of existing Afghan local police. Will that have a major impact on security? Well, the problem is everybody is on edge at the edge at the moment. We have seen an increase in the number of what are called, so-called green-on-blue attacks. A higher rate now than last year so it is clearly escalating in readiness for when the Western troops leave the country entirely in 200014. They are sus penning the current training, checking the background background of the people they have currently got in the force. The problem is people may well loyal when they join but change their mind later on. They know the Americans are pulling out in two and a quarter years time, they might as well change sides now. The people who carry out the attacks usually get killed or kill themselves or flee. One of the One of the values of picking this guy up who was involved in the attacks on the Australians is been captured and can now be attacks on the Australians is he has interrogated. There is continuing debate why the attackes are occurring. The Pakistani and Iran are being blamed by the Afghany President. The Americans are saying no it is a problem locally, culturally, Afghany men are culturally, Afghany men are not liking to be told what to do. Others are saying because they are getting ready to change sides. The old phrase, you can never own an Afghan a, only rent thim hymn and they are -- only rent him. Can I ask you, Afghanistan has accused Australian troops of killing a 70-year-old man and his son while they were to find the rogue soldier. How seriously will that and his son while they were trying

relationships? The Afghany President seriously will that affect has criticised the Australian forces but the Australians have said no, it is within the rules of engagement. Until it is investigated we won't know the fact one way or the but it does represent more tension know the fact one way or the other between the people ree are to be helping. We ought to be between the people ree are supposed getting more support from

getting more support from the Afghany President. We are laying down Australian lives to defend him. Thank you for explaining it. One of the country's highest-profile murder cases is back in court today in Brisbane. Gerard Baden-Clay is facing charges over the murder of his wife, Allison, in April. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper joins us now. Michelle, what's expected to happen in court today? Good morning, Kochie. Well, today is expected to be just a brief in the Magistrates Court with both expected to be just a brief mention sides likely to go over dates for further hearings and handing over evidence. There had evidence. There evidence. There have been a number of delays with this with the prosecution saying it could take until midNovember for a forensic accountant to go over his finance affairs because it is a alleged he was $ was $wunl million in debt when his affairs because it is a alleged he wife was murdered and he stood to gain $ gain $950,000 from his wife's superannuation fund and he is not expected to attend today. We all want to protect our children from harm but sadly, one in five Australian children will be sexually assaulted before they're 18. To mark the start of National Child Protection Week, new research has been released revealing the safest states to raise a child. Bravehearts is responsible for the report and founder Hetty Johnston joins us now. Hetty, where is it safest for children to live? As it turns out, it is Queensland. But only just, Mel. And not across all of it. Queensland actually rated very badly under the education of children. But picked up momentum, if you like, when it you like, when it got down to service delivery and policy and particularly legislation to, the strength of its legislation for convicted sex offenders, put it over the edge. What states and territorys are you most concerned about in Australia and why? Well, there's are -s not a lot of difference across the board. It is not like someone won, hands down the worst or the best. So across the whole country we need to lift our game in education. The ACT and Tasmania rated the worst, or the least safest, predominantly with the education not being able to provide the proper, more effective, I suppose, personal safety education for children. in the legislation, in the areas of legislation and policy. But across safety education for children. Also

the country we need to increase the game, our game in terms of delivering effective personal delivering effective personal safety education to children, consistent across the country. Also, ramping up our child-protection policies, whether it is amber alerts, working with children checks, mandatory reporting, across all areas we to be tighter on it. Do you think we can achieve that? It feels reporting, across all areas we need

there are so many reports. That No. can achieve that? It feels like there are so many reports. That No., one in five Aussie kids one in five Aussie kids sexually assaulted before they are 18. How can we achieve it We can adheev it, Mel. -- achieve it. One of the beautiful things about the research is you see it is you see it is achievable and it is not expensive. It is not. It is about a cultural shift and delivering serves. We can do it by 2020 and reduce sexual 2020 and reduce sexual assault by half. So from 59,000, we can bring it down by half and continue. We can do it by 2020 if we get the government's support behind us and the community support behind us. Because like everything, Mel, it is going to cost us money. It is going to save the country $ to save the country $5. to save the country $5.22 billion a year. It is there for everyone to see, it

see, it is not rocket science wanting to do it and put the best see, it is not rocket science and interests of children first. Thank you very much, here is Mel. A woman has come forward claiming to have kissed Prince Harry in Las Vegas. 32-year-old Carrie Reichert says she was handpicked along with nine other girls to party with the young royal in his penthouse suite. She says the Prince then led her away so they could be together, alone in his room. She's the first female to open up about Harry's wild night in Vegas

where he was pictured naked with another woman during a game of strip billiards. Royal commentator Rob Jobson is in London. Rob, good morning. What else has this woman said? Carrie is now famous as the first to be hand picked. What other stories has she told? has she told? Well, when Harry met Carrie, she left the party with him for 20 minutes to him hisher room and said he was worse for the wear for his drinks and cavorting in his birthday suit, trying to show off. But that is all that happened. They went back into the party and had a drink and drink and went partying in a nightclub later. She the beans too much. She said he is a nightclub later. She hasn't spilled gentleman and doesn't see what the fuss is about, other than the money for the kiss ask tell. Maybe there is nothing else to tell. Good he is a gentleman in his suite. Do you think other women will come forward? I do, actually. There is talk I do, actually. There is talk about other things that were bogue on in the room and the ex-- were going on in that room and the extent of what was going on. Once one girl has cashed in, it will make them want to do it and get money themselves. It is the story that keeps on giving. Rumours Harry would like to win back his girlfriend his girlfriend who dumpedp him after the nude romp. Do you think there is hope? I thought there was probably hope before this girl came forward and explained what wept on in the room. But apparently there were stories saying yes, she will have him back. Talk he is going to Afghanistan soon and he had given her the dates when he would return and things would carry on but it must be quite defendant for her to take him -- difficult for her to take him back after reading the must be quite defendant for her to

latest with the girl. He is kbog to make his -- going to make his first public appearance in a while. Do you think he will care? Well, he will be fully clothed. No doubt about that. He will basically present awards to children, vulnerable children who have done great things and will be handing handing out the awards. Knowing Harry, he will make a couple of jokes about himself and be self dep ruicateing and will get on -- deprecating. It is why we like him. When he is good, he is very good. When he is bad, he is not so much. Thank you. He is comfortable in his skin, isn't he. Isn't he just. He plays plays hard and works hard. How are we ever going to know they are telling the truth? He is not going to come out and to come out and say it is not her. Hundreds of stories. Gee, such a common thing. News is next. But right after the break we make our $20,000 Cash Cow call.

A man, suspected of helping the rogue Afghan soldier who shot dead three Australia diggers, Last week's insider murder of the diggers has led to special operations troops suspending training of Afghan special forces under a NATO ban. The ban comes as the bodies of five Australians killed in Afghanistan last week return home. Hundreds of troops farewelled the diggers at an emotional ceremony in Tarin Kowt. Foreign affairs experts have raised concerns about the re-vetting of Afghan soldiers following the killing of Australian troops. It's feared international forces could find it hard People may well join and be loyal at the time then change their mind later on, in two and a quarter years time. They might as well start to change sides now. Meantime, Afghanistan has accused Australian troops of killing a 70-year-old man and his son as they hunt the rogue soldier who attacked three of our troops. Three people are in hospital after a suspected street race ended in a 5-car crash in Melbourne last night. A silver Mercedes sedan was travelling with a dark-coloured vehicle on Maribyrnong Road in Ascot Vale when another car pulled out in front. The car collided with the Mercedes and several parked cars, the impact flipping the Mercedes on to its roof. The second, dark-coloured car didn't stop. Police say the injuries are not life-threatening. Latest figures show retail sales have improved after a bleak two years The Deloitte Access Economics survey found retail sales over the last six months had been outstanding, with sales up by 2.8% in the first half of the year. However, its report, titled 'Shopping with a Frown' says consumers are still worried about the economy and job security. It said retailers had been supported by real wages growth,

interest rate cuts, and Federal Government handouts. And, wanted - more funnel-web spiders. Staff at the Australian Reptile Park at Gosford, north of Sydney, need help catching funnel-web spiders so they can milk them to create the antivenom. Usually we are the ones saying to people, "If you see a dangerous animal, leave it alone "and then it will leave you alone and you won't have any run-ins." But it is really important that we turn to the community to actually obtain our funnel webs. It's the most productive way for us to get these animals. It takes 70 milkings to make one dose of antivenom. Yep, out you go with a jar today, Nat.

with the Blues going down to the Saints by 15 points in a spiteful clash at Etihad Stadium overnight. At the end of the day I didn't want to make it about me, or that, because it's not. In other matches, the Tigers and Port Adelaide recorded the first draw of the season. as both teams played their last match of the 2012 season. The 29-8 score wasn't ideal for retiring Eels legend Nathan Hindmarsh but the back rower still gave his fans plenty to cheer about, slotting a penalty goal right on full time. COMMENTATOR: Nathan Hindmarsh, you champion. Lleyton Hewitt's US Open campaign has come to an end, going down to fourth seed David Ferrer in four sets. Battling a foot injury, and coming off a 5-setter 2 days ago, Hewitt still showed plenty of fight

but couldn't stay with the Spaniard who won the last set 6-0. And Robin van Persie's has scored a hat-trick in Manchester United's nail-biting comeback victory over Southampton in the English Premier League. The Dutch striker levelled scores at 2-2 in the 87th minute then went one better in extra time, heading in the winner to devastate the Saints. COMMENTATOR: Oh, and they've scored. He's done it - would you believe it? The win was icing on the cake for United coach Alex Ferguson who celebrated his 1,000th league game at the helm. Quite remarkable. Yep. Quite remarkable this too, record crowd season for inNRL this season, 3. season for inNRL this season, 3.15 million people went to an NRL game. A big turnout.

Wasn't it a great performance? great performance and a great moment. Penrith is her backyard. This is where you spend every day of your life? Exactly, since I was about four years old, my parents would drag us along here in the mornings when they were working. I grew up in the sandpit, playing on the raft and then the water. You progressed from playing, and a sandpit to a silver medaling. We are lucky to have this facility, a big part of the Sydney Games but it is an extraordinary facility? Yes, definitely, it is one of the best facilities in the world. A lot of European paddlers come out here in their winter to their winter to train. I train here every day.
