what you say. Straight ahead - the $12 million study that's concluded Kiwi wine tastes like cats' pee. Then, Dr Keith Suter on Australia's legacy in Iraq. And later, the lucky wombat nursed back to health by zoo staff. You'll meet Matari, on Sunrise.

Tomorrow on Sunrise - it's the most important Federal Budget in decades so we're going to take it back to basics. Our experts will make it easy to understand what's changing. Plus the disease control report card. How close are we to cures for the major killers?

That's Wednesday on Sunrise. One of Hollywood's hottest couples have renewed their vows Nuala has the pictures at 6:50. But right now Jen has been going through Tuesday's papers. The royal commission into the Victorian bushfires is front page in Melbourne. 'The Age' says fire experts saw it coming. But the CFA chief didn't know an expert had predicted the Kilmore fire would reach Kinglake. The 'Courier-Mail' has a disturbing story out of Queensland.

Nurses at Innisfail Hospital were preparing to remove the body of a patient who had died when they realised she was still breathing. A doctor had earlier pronounced the woman dead and her family had been phoned. The fallout from the NRL group-sex scandal is also making headlines. The 'Daily Telegraph' says Matthew Johns has fled to Western Australia, as the victim revealed she felt suicidal after the incident. And wealthy retirees are set to lose out in tonight's Budget. The 'Herald Sun' says well-off retirees will be slugged so that almost one million pensioners can get an extra $30 a week. And, of course, Kochie, you're going into lockup this afternoon in Canberra.

I am sure you are looking forward to

it. Do you want to go? No s I got a

school run or two to do. There will

be a spare seat. That is what the

Budget is all about. If you are on

the borderline of getting some sort

of Government assistance

of Government assistance whether Family Tax Benefits and pensions or

whatever and you sneak in, tonight

you will be well and truly out. You

were talking about the taper rules

for pensions. You get a full pension

and it reduces the more your income

goes up and cuts out at a particular

level. The cut-out level will be

brought back. They will pick up bits

and pieces. I am sure you will make

sense of it for all of us. And tie me kangaroo down sport. The Brits have found a novel way to keep their lawns down. They're using wallabies to trim their grass. Demand is so high there's even a waiting list for the marsupials. Do you have an animal to keep your yard in check? Email or SMS and let us know.

I had a little pony after the

bushfires in Victoria. I was

babysitting a pony and it was doing

a good job keeping the lawn down and

eating half the garden. There was a

payoff. You got to clean up after

them. It was something that the boys

will never forget. Rubber gloves, it

was fun. Kangaroos to Britain, poor

kangaroos. Maybe it is the only way

they can beat the wall business.

They look happy. I got one more.

Wait for this one. You'll never look at sauvignon blanc the same away again. A team of scientists has spent $12 million and taken six years to conclude New Zealand's top drop tastes like cat's pee. The technical term is "core aromas". They are cat's pee, sweaty passionfruit and asparagus. Which got us thinking - what's the strangest wine description you've seen on a label? Let us know.

I think if they said sweaty

passionfruit and Cats pee. It

doesn't ring cheeky at all I do love

the descriptions. What is cheeky?

There are some great labels. Like

Mad Fish. You read the label and it

says a hint of chocolate or

lemongrass and you go " lemongrass and you go "What?

lemongrass and you go "What?" Let us

know. Strangest, oddest description

you have seen on a wine label. On the way, what our pullout from Iraq means for its future. And Aussie singer Peter Andre and Jordan end their 4-year marriage. Next up, though, blue chips battered on Wall Street. Kochie's finance report follows the break on Sunrise. After its recent sprint ahead, the US stock markets have taken a breather. CNBC finance reporter Scott Wapner joins us now from the US. Scott, what's the reason for this?

Do you reckon it is short term? Hard

to say. You know, the shorts have

gotten killed in this market.

Everyone who thinks the market will

go lower has got hammered of late.

It is hard to say. I heard predibss

momentary breather, we will go

higher, but this smacks of

everything to do of taking a little

bit of a breather after what you

mentioned that big run-up and

especially last week on the stress

test of the banks. The BKX up about

30% or so just last week alone. That

gives you an idea that the market

was due for some sort of pull-back.

Banks down overnight. People have

had the weekend to digest the stress

tests. Do you reckon they will raise

the capital by themselves? They were

down today and many banks closed on

their lows. Many are going to the

market with secondary offerings or

other ways to look for capital.

Banks announcing to do that today

closed lower. It is hard to say what

will happen to the banks. You have

to pay attention to credit carded

and - credit cards and there are

others out there saying that at

least in the near term that the

earnings of the banks will be

propped up a bit like in the first

quarter but that is where you have question quarter but that is where you have

question marks. Anyone's guess where

we go from here. Scott, thank you

for that. Check you next time Checking the rest of the markets:

Business confidence figures

rebounded up yesterday. Ahead this morning - the celibate Catholic priest who's fallen in love. Plus how to build up grassroots campaigns like Reject the Recession. But after the break - Fifi with more businesses doing just that. The latest stop on her coast to coast tour is next on Sunrise.

We all throw old wives' tales around but how true are they? If you pluck a grey hair, will three really grow back in its place?

I will give that a go. If you pluck

one, three will grow back. Who cares

what colour it is? We'll put some common urban myths to the test, later this morning.

We will put some common urban myths

to rest. What urban myths have you

heard and we will clear them up And

the ones that do the rounds in the

emails. My mum sent me one saying

right or wrong? It is wrong. We will

get the answers to you. Although the

right. Nat, have your chicken soup.

What brings your voice back? Don't

tell her. You have been laughing all

morning. I can not believe you said

that, Melissa. You have been

laughing all morning. We hope she is OK. But now Jennifer Keyte is in for Nat and she has the news. Wayne Swan and Kevin Rudd have been accused of losing control of the nation's finances ahead of tonight's Budget. The papers delivered to Parliament last night contain a lot of bad news including a record $58 billion deficit

and 8.5% unemployment. The reckless spending of the Rudd Government is coming home to roost. And every Australian will have to pay. But the Treasurer will argue he's made the best of a bad bunch of numbers. Aged pensioners will get their $30 a week extra but some will miss out with a tougher form of means testing for the money. A former rugby league coach admits group sex has been part of team bonding in the NRL. Roy Masters made the claims on last night's 'Four Corners' program investigating a group sex incident involving Cronulla Sharks players in 2002. In the past there could be little doubt that a girl that might have accommodated three or four players was all part of players becoming a closer knit unit for want of a better word. Channel Nine commentator Matthew Johns last week admitted his role. He's now holidaying in Western Australia with his family. A factory in Brisbane's north has exploded into flames this morning. The blaze threatened neighbouring buildings at Geebung as firefighters struggled to contain 10m high flames. Crews are still mopping up this morning with smoke pouring from the factory's charred remains. The reliability of bowel cancer test kits given to around half a million Australians over the age of 50 is in doubt. The kits, made in Japan,

were provided free by the Department of Health and Ageing

but don't accurately diagnose the disease. Around 100,000 people will need to be re-tested. A team of astronauts has blasted into space for a make-or-break mission to repair the Hubble telescope. Space shuttle 'Atlantis' launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center

Beautiful pictures though. Yes. It

Don't you always love the pictures?

Yes, the sparks flying. Time for sport now with Beretts. St Kilda is back on top of the AFL ladder after thrashing Collingwood by 88 points at Etihad Stadium last night. Saints captain Nick Riewoldt and Adam Schneider combined to lead the Saints with both players booting five goals each. The match attracted a crowd of almost 47,000 giving the AFL a good indication that Monday night footy as a permanent fixture

could be the way to go. Fremantle's Byron Schammer is expected to front the AFL Tribunal to fight a charge of striking Carlton's Marc Murphy. He's facing suspension, even if he pleads guilty, due to carry over points. And fans can expect to see a fired up Port Adelaide for the remainder of the year. The Power players have had a quick course in boxing and martial arts to finetune their power. The Roosters have slipped to second last on the NRL ladder after a 28 points to 12 loss at the hands of the Storm in the NRL overnight. The Roosters opened the scoring but a lack of discipline handed the Storm plenty of good field position. With eight players backing up from representative duty, Melbourne got on with the job. Eels reject Brett Finch scored his first try in the Melbourne jersey but was placed on report for the way he attempted to stop a try. Adam Gilchrist's Deccan Chargers have outplayed Shane Warne's Rajasthan Royals overnight in the Indian Premier League. Andrew Symonds made 30 in the Chargers' innings of 7/166. The Royals were all out for 113 in 19.3 overs

after Rohit Sharma took 3/12.

Matty Johns, damaging, unacceptable.

David Gallop realises he has a

open up my computer and there are

dozens and dozens of emails

dozens and dozens of emails from rugby league fans saying how

appalled they are. It is not about

the rugby league. It is about what

happens off the field and the

culture that has been created that

we all turned a blind eye to over

the years. It is particularly a

blokey thing but we got to address

it. Rugby league will die. Mothers

won't let their kids play. Not

rugby league. Group sex is won't let their kids play. Not just

It is something where the

are former footballers so they turn

a blind eye and let the boys do what

they want to do. People say this

happened in 2002 but because a blind

eye was turned we got what we got in

2009. Is this the end of Matty Johns

as this Tuesday edition of Sunrise continues. # Reach up for the sunrise... # VOICEOVER: Now back to Sunrise, live across Australia.

We sl see how Sam Worthington is doing. If you've just tuned in, Nat is off sick again today. because she's missing Budget Day. She has no voice, which is a pity, Kochie has polished his glasses, has plenty of ink checked his green auditor's pen in his calculator. and put new batteries

I start to get butterflies around

this time Mark Riley will look after

you. It is only six hours until

lockup starts. How long are you

locked up for? 6.

locked up for? 6.5 hours. Wow! It is

like a school excursion. Shortly, we'll take a look at the last-minute leaks and predictions. But right now, Jennifer Keyte has the news of this Tuesday. Wealthy retirees will be among the big loser's in tonight's Federal Budget

which the Rudd Government says will be tough. It's blaming the recession and the largesse of the Howard years and insists a record deficit will be temporary. They're meant to be top secret But much of what's in these tightly guarded Budget papers has already been leaked. Seven News revealed last night there'll be a deficit of $58 billion. This is a massive amount of money with massive pain for Australians directly as a result of Kevin Rudd's reckless spending. The pain starts tonight. But Kevin Rudd says it's temporary. for temporary deficits Temporary borrowings been left by private sector in order to plug the gap which has temporarily. and retreat and to do so a whole lot worse The bottom line could look hundreds of millions of dollars with the Government set to lose collected from the alcopops tax by midnight. unless the laws are passed in Canberra today So politicians are waking early for a happy Budget Day. but few are hoping

We all are in this together. Women who've been degraded by rugby league players

have been offered an unreserved apology from the NRL. It follows the release of more sordid details about a night of group sex involving Cronulla Sharks players and a New Zealand woman, who says it destroyed her life. WOMAN: If I had a gun I would shoot them, right now. I hate them, I want them dead. I hate them so much. Two other women told 'Four Corners' they were sexually assaulted by players but did not press charges. Almost 500,000 Australians will need to be re-tested for bowel cancer after a Japanese-made self-test kit was found to be faulty. Gut Foundation president Terry Bolin joins us now, in our Sydney studio. Good morning, Terry. These tests, from Fujirebio Diagnostics, were provided as part of the Health Department's screening program. How did this happen

and do people who used the test need to be worried?

The test in another form has been

ash for 25 years with rotary. This

is a refinement of the test and the

blood comes from the colon. We

didn't believe there could be a

problem apparently there is a with

the testing solution from Japan.

Those who tested negative and were

falsely reassured they didn't have

cancer or a polyp, they will have to

be tested quickly. Has the Government's bowel cancer screening program been effective?

It has in part. It targeted those

aged 50, 55, 60

aged 50, 55, 60 and 65 and all those

patients in between don't get the

chance. If you are 56 and not tested

for nine years, you will have a

problem. Thank you for joining us this morning. Australia's 6-year commitment to the war in Iraq will end on 31 July. 45 troops left in Iraq, part of Operation Catalyst, will leave after the end of their mission

to train the country's army and help in rehabilitation operations. Combat troops were pulled out last year. Some staff will remain to protect Australian diplomats. Police are investigating a massive fire

that's destroyed a construction factory in Brisbane's north. The blaze ripped through the Geebung building about 10:30 last night. Fire crews raced there after numerous 000 calls

and say the flames could be seen from kilometres away as gas cylinders inside exploded. About 40 firefighters and giant cranes were needed to contain the blaze. They're still mopping up this morning. In finance news: Time for sport now, here's Beretts. St Kilda has registered its biggest ever win over Collingwood at Etihad Stadium overnight. The Saints shot back to the top of the AFL ladder

with their seventh straight victory this year. A crowd of almost 47,000 fans gave the AFL every indication that Monday night footy is the way to go. But it's a good thing counting is done on the way in with many Magpies fans heading home early because of their side's woeful display. St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt and Adam Schneider led the 88-point thumping with five goals each. I think the way all the boys went tonight was really well. Everyone just played their role and they said, "We don't care who kicks goals, "it's just everyone doing their bit" and that's what got us over the line tonight. To make matters worse for the Magpies, forward Travis Cloke pulled up with a hamstring injury and ruckman Josh Fraser injured his knee. Roosters NRL coach Brad Fittler has roasted his players after a poor show of discipline let them down against the Storm 28 points to 12. Melbourne ran in five tries to two on the back of good field position. The Roosters conceded nine successive penalties.

Pretty critical of our discipline.

They keep giving penalties and get

out of trouble. They got five or six

of those penalties and they come

down and it really hurt us a lot. Both sides had a player sin binned for repeated infringements. Brett Finch scored his first try in Storm colours but he's been placed on report for sliding across, boot first, trying to defend a Roosters try. French tennis player Richard Gasquet has been suspended by the International Tennis Federation. He tested positive for cocaine

and will now be forced to front an anti-doping tribunal. Gasquet says he's innocent despite both his A and B samples coming back positive. And in netball's ANZ Championship Queensland has jumped into the top four

after a win over West Coast. The Firebirds squandered two big leads before fighting back from a 5-goal deficit in the final term

to post their third straight victory.

Hot debate about Monday night footy.

By Monday night I had have had

enough. It was definitely not a case

of giving Monday night the seal of of giving Monday night the seal of

approval but having to see my team

play. Thank you, Beretts. Let play. Thank you, Beretts. Let us play. Thank you, Beretts. Let us know what you think. Up soon, the details on Australia's pullout from Iraq. But first let's check in with Fifi.

a bath. He is enjoying himself. We

A low near New Zealand is causing dangerous surf along the New South Wales coast. Cloud increasing over South Australia

and isolated showers over southern WA. A mostly fine day in Brisbane. Sydney can expect a shower or two. Early fog patches over Melbourne then a partly cloudy day. Cloud increasing over Adelaide. Fine in Perth.

Just speaking of some of the

fantastic businesses like Dogs Only

recession. This is Chicken, Lanigan

Defence says we'll end our military commitment to Iraq's rehabilitation. The mission began in March 2003 and combat troops pulled out last year. So, who's been in Iraq since then and will any Aussies stay on? It's over to our foreign editor Dr Keith Suter. Good morning. Who's leaving in July?

Who has left? The ones that have

left are the ones who are doing the

training. They are training about

30,000 local personnel who will take

over the military duty. We have been

doing mainly training. That the bulk

of the work. The people who remain

are the people who will

are the people who will protect the Australian diplomats. Quite often

you might end up with a small force

to protect the diplomats. What sort

of numbers? How many involved in the

training and how many to protect

diplomats? The bulk of 500 or so

came out last year. We are left with

a few hundred. After July it will be

about 100. They are protecting our

diplomat personnel. It is a gradual

winding down. We got about 3,000

troops based around the world and

about a dozen missions under way. It

is never a dull moment. We still got

troops in Israel and Egypt peace

agreement. They are scattered around

the world. They are very busy

troops. Are we leaving Iraq in a

better state than it was in 2003?

This is a basic question. The good

news is that Saddam Hussein is gone.

On the other hand it has cost a lot

of Iraqi lives. We had five

Americans killed by one of their own

comrades and shot up his own fellow

members in a hospital. The Americans

went into Iraq to first of all find

weapons of mass destruction, which

weren't there, and to instil

democracy. We just don't know. You

don't have one election and it

becomes a democracy. There must be a

lot of Muslims around the world saying "

saying "Perhaps the Americans are

not as good as they make out. They

have been held to a draw in Iraq. have been held to a draw in Iraq."

It is not an all-out vikts ri

It is not an all-out vikts ri like World War I or World War II. Here we

will be debating the war for years

to come. Their losses have been low,

they have not been involved in major

scandal which is why Americans are

interested in having so many

Australians in Afghanistan because

we are so good. Is there a lot of

American involvement still? No,

Barack Obama and Kevin Rudd said we

were pulling out. And we had the new

American president pulling out. If

you vote for me, we will put out the

troops. Most of the American troops

in the combat role will be gone next

year and almost all out by 2011

except for a few protecting

diplomats. By the end of 2011 we

will see the end of the military

involvement in Iraq. A big change

eight years on. Thank you, Keith. Still ahead on Sunrise - the Catholic priest so famous they call him "Father Oprah". But he's been caught out giving private communion.

The photos of him with a woman has reignited the debate over celibate priests. You'll hear his side of the story, at 7:50. But right now here's Kochie. Budget Day has finally arrived. On Sunrise we'll tell you straight about how it's going to affect you. Today's 'Age' says expect a $58 billion deficit and one million people out of work. Unemployment is expected to rise to 8.5%. Kevin Rudd's plan is to slug wealthy retirees. The leaks have come thick and fast. There'll be tax cuts of between $6 and $20 a week. And the promised $3 a week boost for aged pensioners.

On the downside, Let's bring in our Budget Day panel, chief political correspondent Mark Riley. Alison Carabine from Fairfax Radio and CommSec Economist Craig James. Good morning to you all.

Mark, we got a global financial

crisis, the worst. How much

pressure? The Government said it is

pressure? The Government said it is the most important Budget in modern

times. They have to give a very

clear picture of the damage on the

financial crisis. We reported last

night that the deficit will be $

night that the deficit will be $58

million, one million unemployed and

growth in unemployment. The

opportunity for the Government to

set a path out of recession. This is

so popular it gives sliced bread a

bad name. It needs to spend a bit of

that popularity. It needs to do deep

and harsh cuts. We are 16-18 months

out of election. If it doesn't do it

now, it certainly won't two years from now. Former Treasurer Peter Costello says he'll be dead before we pay off the Federal Government's debt. Craig, how bad are you expecting the numbers to be and how will it affect the average Aussie?

Well, I think we need to keep it in

perspective. Here in Australia we

have the lowest foreign debt as a

proportion of GDP in the developed

world. We got 5% and the US

something like 58% and Japan

something like 94%

something like 94%. We can afford to

have a little debt. We have been

underperforming and able to increase

our infrastructure. Maybe 3% in the

GDP. In the US it is 13% and 12% in

the UK. We are still in good shape.

We have been reporting budget

surpluses and paid off our debt. Of

the developed countries we are in

good shape. For the average people

they will come through unscathed.

Pension going up, the taxes being

cut. A lot of people will look on

the one hand and on the other hand

if this is a horror Budget, why am I

not worst affected.

Do you think there are any rabbits

out of the hat? They managed

expectations. It is a ritual we go

through every year. The bad news is

selectively leaked, reported in the

media so by the time of Budget night

there are no nasties, no nasty

headlines in the morning. The major

Government spending cutbacks have

been strategically leaked. What the

Government really needs to do

tonight is make a positive

announcement, a good announcement of

something we haven't seen coming.

They need to spin the good news from

this Budget. They need favourable

headlines because it is so important

in framing the opinion of the

Budget. Any thoughts on where that

extra Government spending could be?

They talked about boosting defence?

We will learn tonight the price tag

for the defence white paper. What

might come as a surprise may be the

infrastructure spending just how

much money the Government will

throw. Mark Riley? 100% with Ali.

The path to recovery will be

infrastructure, ports, roads, rails.

Those projects can create jobs and

jobs is the biggest issue for the

Government. It affects family. Wage

earners lose their own self-respect.

It has an enormous effect on the

family structure so the Government

has to protect that. A lot to digest

in the next 24 hours. I will catch

you guys in 24 hours as we get news

you guys in 24 hours as we get news of the Budget. Thank you. The NRL has apologised to the victims of alleged sexual assault revealed by the ABC last night. Three women claimed they were abused by rugby league players. They include a New Zealand waitress involved in a group-sex incident with Cronulla Sharks players in 2002. There was always hands on me and there was always... ..if one person had stopped, someone was touching me, doing something else. There was never a point where I was not being handled. I had my eyes shut for a lot of it. And when I opened my eyes, there's just a long line at the end of the bed.

I opened my computer and there are

dozen as dozens of emails from rugby

league fans saying thu sick they are

and appalled. 75% of those fans are

women. That the issue. It is not

about the rugby league, it is about

what happens off the field and the

culture it created that we turned a

blind eye to over the years. It is a

blokey thing. We got to address it

because rugby league will die.

Mothers won't let their kids play.

Roy Masters touched on it, group sex

is a bonding session. Appalling and

unacceptable. Irreparable in my opinion. The NRL's boss David Gallop says 'Four Corners' dealt with issues that were appalling and unacceptable. He says, the game "unreservedly apologises". And he claims the NRL, the clubs and players have made substantial changes in attitudes. The third series of 'The Zoo' starts tonight. My partner here hosts the show and you have some great stories for us including one about a cute baby wombat? That's right, his name is Matari and he was left at Taronga Zoo in a pretty sad state. Zookeeper Rachel Laing was appointed as his surrogate mum and she joins us now. Good morning. Tell us how Matari came to the zoo.

Tell us his story. We are not really

sure what happened to him but he was

brought to the zoo and dropped off

at the main entrance and he was

looking pretty sad and sorry. He had

a lot of bald patches on him and

very under weight. So we took him to

the the hospital where the vets and

the nurses could have a good look at

him. What did they do for him? They

check all over and make sure he is

not too dehydrated. He had a few

flees on him which means he has been

around dogs and cats which is not

good for our native wildlife. He was

looking pretty good other than being

a bit thin. He looks lovely and

cuddly and well fed now. One of the

things that has struck me in doing

this is the dedication that all the zoo

zoo keepers are for the animals. You

were getting up in the middle of the

night to feed them? I sure was. You

have to have the dedication have to have the dedication and

passion to do it. I was feeding him

every three hours to get him back to

normal weight. I was getting up in

the middle of the night. What does

he eat? I was feeding him marsupial milk

milk which he is getting now still.

He is a bit restless. He is still

getting his bottles a day, two

bottles a day which is the special

marsupial milk because they are

lactose intolerant. He loves sweet

potato at the moment. Very cute.

Well done to you. He is gorgeous.

Thank you so much for joining us. No

problem. They don't escape like the

gorillas and orangutans. We seem to

have a group of them He won't go

anywhere. Always seems to follow

Mel's presence. Hopefully he will be

re-released shortly when he is two

years old. You will miss him. I

will. Thanks. Have a good day. You can see more of Matari's story at 7:30 tonight on 'The Zoo'.

If you haven't caught the Zoo, it is

great family viewing. It is lovely.

There are snow leopard cubs born

There are snow leopard cubs born at Melbourne Zoo, a big silver back

gorilla, 170kg with a bung tooth.

Are we going to see on eye future

episode of 'The Zoo' the way you

wrestled hill back into the cage? No.

Later this morning - we'll catch up with the Aussie top gun who's competing in an extreme air race. Matt Hall will join us live from the US. Plus, the new movie about fans and the stars who inspire them. It's all there, maps, passcodes. How did you score all this? Are you kidding, I'm William Shattner, I can get anything. Check out the new movie 'Fanboys' at 7:40 on Sunrise. ACT Treasurer Katy Gallagher predicts today's federal budget WON'T hurt Canberra's public service too much. While ANU students hope for an overhaul of their income support. And ACTCOSS wants local community groups and social programs boosted. Questions about the multi-million dollar Belconnen town centre re- development will be answered at a public forum tonight. Under the plan .. the Bus interchange will be demolished and temporary stations set up. Moves to cut our water use. A Fyshwick based company's come up with a new tap which it claims is more environmentally friendly and less costly than an electronic one. Three Raiders thrashed in country origin last week will return to the line-up against the Storm on Monday. The full team will be announced today.

Sunrise brought to you by Jetstar - Australia's low-fares airline. Now flying to more than 10 great holiday destinations overseas. To book go to: Jetstar knows that as the weather gets colder, it's time to hit the slopes. So this week they're offering a great deal including airfares to Christchurch, a beginner ski package, and five nights accomodation. For those with a bit more experience there's a six night deal, including an intermediate ski package. Ahead on the show - the fresh debate about whether Catholic priests should be celibate. Right now, though, Jen's got the news. The NRL admits the behaviour of some of its players has been appalling but insists the culture of rugby league is changing. A New Zealand woman at the centre of a group sex scandal in 2002 has told 'Four Corners' she was treated like a piece of meat by Cronulla Sharks players, including Matthew Johns. The now 26-year-old says for years afterwards she felt worthless. WOMAN: I still feel it's my fault. I know it's not, but I feel that way. The NRL has issued a statement apologising to women who've been degraded by players. Wealthy retirees will be one of the targets for much-needed savings when the Rudd Government unveils a record Budget deficit tonight. The Budget papers were delivered to Parliament last night. Plans to tighten the taper rate for the aged pension could be hidden in the detail to pay for a $30 weekly increase to the pension. But that still won't plug Wayne Swan's Budget black hole. The Opposition says a $58 billion deficit, revealed by Seven News last night, is proof the Treasurer and PM have been spending irresponsibly. Victoria's senior firefighter wasn't informed of the impending doom on Black Saturday.

A royal commission into the fires that killed 173 people has been told

experts created a map predicting where the blaze would spread. But the CFA's chief officer didn't know about it and neither did residents.

Russel Rees told the hearing the best warnings possible were given at the time. A lift cable has snapped inside London's Tower Bridge sending an elevator with six people inside crashing to the ground. Five tourists and their guide were on their way down when the cable broke, 3 metres from the bottom. All suffered injuries including broken ankles and legs. The bridge is currently undergoing a 3-year restoration program but has remained open to the public. A team of astronauts has blasted into space for a make-or-break mission to repair the Hubble telescope. Space shuttle 'Atlantis' launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center on target.

Saints captain Nick Riewoldt and Adam Schneider

combined to lead the Saints with both players booting five goals each. The match attracted a crowd of almost 47,000 giving the AFL a good indication that Monday night footy as a permanent fixture could be the way to go. Fremantle's Byron Schammer is expected to front the AFL Tribunal to fight a charge of striking Carlton's Marc Murphy. He's facing suspension, even if he pleads guilty, due to carry over points. And fans can expect to see a fired up Port Adelaide for the remainder of the year. The Power players have had a quick course in boxing and martial arts to finetune their power. The Roosters have slipped to second last on the NRL ladder after a 28 points to 12 loss at the hands of the Storm in the NRL overnight. The Roosters opened the scoring but a lack of discipline handed the Storm plenty of good field position. With eight players backing up from representative duty, Melbourne got on with the job. Eels reject Brett Finch scored his first try in the Melbourne jersey

but was placed on report for the way he attempted to stop a try. Adam Gilchrist's Deccan Chargers have outplayed Shane Warne's Rajasthan Royals overnight in the Indian Premier League. Andrew Symonds made 30 in the Chargers' innings of 7/166.
