(generated from captions) This program will be live captioned by Ai-MediaA plan to make sure that families pay $250 less per year for electricity. The Government taunts a new plan to save on electricity prices but the States are yet to weigh in. A 21-year-old arrested over a fatal hit and run during a street brawl in Brisbane south. Northern Territory police still on the hunt for a monster crocodile believed to have killed a young boy. This is news now for Sunday, 2 December, I'm Chris Rowe. Also coming up this hour, a busy Tokyo motorway collapses with several cars trapped inside. And in sport, the Aussies have their work cut out for them as South Africa continues to build a strong lead in the third Test. The forecast, hot and thundery in the east and north-west.

The Government is proposing an electricity plan to give customers greater choice and the power to question price rises. The Prime Minister says that the plan will save families as much as $250 a year and will give real help to every home. The opposition maintains that the best way to drop electricity prices is to drop the carbon tax. The cost of electricity has gone up 50% in just the last four years. Now Julia Gillard says she has a plan that will save households hundreds. It's about addressing the real drivers of high power prices, the over investment, the so called gold plating of the network. The trade-off is removing a level of guaranteed reliability and limiting investment. A new consumer challenge panel will have a say in how electricity companies spend on infrastructure and they will have to justify investment choices. And giving consumers more of a go, more of a say, more information. A further $23 million would also go to the energy regulator so it can better scrutinise prices. Smart meters and time of day pricing would also be more readily available. The Prime Minister is not saying that any of these proposals would decrease power prices now. A plan to make sure that families pay $250 less per year for electricity than they would if we just let the current system run. A saving of $250 a year is the best case scenario and it still wouldn't be felt until 2014. This is a Gillard Government plan but the onus is with the States to make it a reality and it is still to be fought out with the Premiers, that is due to happen this Friday. We find these processes are often in reviews, so we see a lot of bickering between the States and the Government. So we think it is absolutely crunch time. There is no support from this plan from the opposition. But the most important thing, the biggest thing, the immediate thing, is to drop the carbon tax because this taxi is, and always has been, an electricity tax. -- because this tax is. Julia Gillard heads into the Christmas break with the latest polls showing the AWU scandal covinflicted some real damage on Herman Van Rompuy political standing. A galaxy poll published in News Ltd today shows that one in five voters believe the Prime Minister was honestly. More than 50% of voters believe Julia Gillard has either lied or been economical with the truth. The opposition spent the week in over reach and then humiliating back down. One moment apparently I'm guilty of a crime. The next moment it has slipped right back down to conduct unbecoming. What that is telling you is that the opposition doesn't really have anything to say here of substance. 56% of people said that the whole saga was likely to change their voting intentions. Tony Abbott indicated he will continue to pursue the matter with the Prime Minister. Plainly, there has been gravely unethical conduct from the Prime Minister and possibly unlawful conduct. The point I make is that the Prime Minister obviously misled the Western Australian corporate affairs commission and the next point I make is that it is unlawful to do that. Two-thirds of people polled by galaxy last Thursday and Friday still want Julia Gillard to make a full statement to the Parliament. A 21-year-old man has been arrested after a teenage boy died in a Brisbane hospital after a hit and run in the city south. Witnesses say that the 17-year-old had been involved in a street fight just before he was struck. Just after 10.30 and a violent brawl spills on to a street in Woodridge. A teenage boy is run down by a car. The car was doing drive-byes, went up the road, turned around and came flying down the road and hit our mate and he went flying and just fell on the ground and that's when everything stopped, everyone ran over and tried to help him. We all tried to help him. Knocked unconscious, the 17-year-old was rushed to a nearby hospital but died just hours later. It was pretty devastating. There was a lot of blood, a lot of cuts. Yeah, he didn't look the same. After -- up to 80 people were involved in the fight. Everything got smashed, letterboxes gone thrown everywhere, people got knocked out, it was just crazy. Everyone tried to have a good time for someone's birthday and it just got mefd up. The car sped away from the scene of the accident. He didn't deserve this at all. Everyone there was having a good time, partying. But I guess it was bad luck. The vehicle has since been found by police. It seems that the vehicle possibly, at this early stage in the investigation, may have intentionally run into this person. But as I said, the investigation is still continuing. Northern Territory police are hunting a 4m monster crocodile believed to have taken a nine-year-old boy. The boy went missing from a remote community in East Arnhem Land yesterday. Police say a major search is underway for a child who went missing believed to be taken by a crocodile near Nhulunbuy in East Arnhem Land. They say the boy was taken at around 12 noon yesterday by what they are saying is a 4m monster crock near the out station of Darnia. We have had police and rangers throughout the location throughout the night spotting for the suspected crocodile. Overnight, a number of smaller crocodiles were sighted but to this time, the suspected crocodile and the missing child haven't been seen. Friends say police and family who were with the boy when he went missing attempted to spear the crocodile however it dragged him out to deeper waters. They say that this re-affirms the concerns about water ways across the Northern Territory. It's a tragic reminder that the waters around the Northern Territory are full of dangerous animals, crocodiles being the number one danger in the waters around the Northern Territory and if people are swimming in the waters, they need to take extreme care. Family and friends are said to be in shock as they come to terms with the news. Meanwhile, police say they are not hopeful of a positive outcome. Still in the Northern Territory and police are certain that several people were involved in the theft of 14 weapons from a Navy patrol boat in Darwin. A 40-year-old man will appear in the Darwin Magistrates Court tomorrow charged in relation to the weapons theft. A dozen semi automatic pistols and two pump action shotguns were stolen from HMAS Bathurst on Friday morning. A sailor was overpowered, assaulted and then tied up. Following an around the clock investigation into the robbery, territory police surrounded a Darwin unit yesterday afternoon.A 40-year-old male is currently in police custody assisting with us our inquiries. And the investigations are ongoing. All 14 weapons were recovered at the unit, however, police are still trying to work out what the man's involvement in the robbery was. It would appear that there are a number of people who have conspired in the commission of this offence. And to engage in the breach of security at the base. And investigators will continue those investigations until all persons that had a hand in that conspiracy have been brought to justice. Police say it appears the intruder had good knowledge of the lay-out of the vessel and defence force procedures. We are still inquiring as to the back grounds of the individual concerned. And what their connection may be with the relevant considerations as to the base and the motivations of the offending. As a result of the incident, the Navy has ordered an investigation into the security on naval vessels and at bases around the country. An unknown number of vehicles are on fire and five people are feared to be trapped inside a motorway tunnel after it collapsed 80km west of Tokyo. According to Japanese media sources, a rescue operation is underway and at least one woman has been rescued from the tunnel. The accident occurred in the Tokyo bound leans inside the Sasago tunnel on the Chuo Expressway at around 8 a.m. lokeam time. North Korea says it will launch another rocket just eight months after its last attempt ended in failure. The north says that it hopes that the new rocket will carry a catlight into orbit. -- satellite into orbit. This will be their second rocket launch this year and also the second launch under Kim Jong Un. It says that it is intended to put a working satellite into orbit, that is the same reason they gave back in April when that launch failed but it was not accepted as a reason in April, it is unlikely to be accepted this time around, Washington, Seoul, many other countries, all believe that it is a cover for testing ballistic missile technology which is banned by the united nations. We have already heard from the South Korean forres minstrer saying they have serious concerns about this announcement and they believe it is a cover for this testing. Now, we have been reporting over recent days that this launch could be possible and could be imminent. We received satellite images from digital globe, the US satellite imagery company, and you could see what appeared to be the first and second stages of a north Korean rocket stationed at the launch station, the same place where they launched Aprils failed bid. The timing is also very interesting. President Obama has just been reelected to the White House. We have a presidential election here in South Korea on December, the 19th, in the middle of the window that North Korea has given for this possible launch. They say it will be between the 10th and 22nd of December. The British Prime Minister will meet with newspaper editors to discuss the press regulation and whether the industry can deliver it alone. He is under pressure from more than 60,000 people backing full implementation of Lord Justice Leveson's recommendations. At this regional newspaper in Belfast, they are finessing the next edition and they prepare to med-Government leaders to sort out how they are to be regulated and the campaign representing victims of phone hacking attracts tens of thousands of petitioners.What the Prime Minister seems to accept is the right of free speech for media barrens, okay, and huge corporations. Trading all over the rights and interests of the public to be hold the truth. And individuals often vulnerable individuals not to have their lives destroyed. That isn't acceptable. Harry Potter author gave evidence. She too thinks David Cameron has got it wrong. SquoI am alarmed and dismayed that the Prime Minister appears to be backing away from assurances that he made at the outset of the inquiry. Without statutory under pinning the recommendations will not work. We will be left with another voluntary system from which the press can walk away. I am merely one among many who feel duped and angry.When she chairs Tuesday's meeting, Maria Miller with are David Cameron at Herman Van Rompuy side l tell newspaper editors that they have got to come up with an effective plan if they want to avoid legal compulsion. Lord Justice Leveson seems determine that this time something has got to change. This is news now, the top stories are coming up in just a moment, plus all of the latest sport with Sam as the Wallabies finish their year on a high.

P The top stories: the Coalition has labelled the Prime Minister's plan for slashing energy bills a stunt that won't stop the price hikes triggered by the carbon tax. A birthday celebration that spireraled out of control near Brisbane has left a teenager dead and a man facing a possible murder charge. And hopes are fade that a nine-year-old boy snatched by a crocodile at a remote Northern Territory swimming spot will be found alive. All the sport now with Sam and Hashim Amla still holding court there at the WACA. He is up to 150 now. South Africa continue to punish the Australian batsman on day three of the deciding Test in Perth. Hashim Amla has made 150 with Kallis the only wicket to fall today. Unbeaten on 99 overnight, Hashim Amla needed just three balls to reach triple figures. There it is, off the hips and there is another 100 to Hashim Amla, his terrific run scoring continues. A new day failed to bring a change in fortune for the Aussie bowlers. That is a glorious stroke. He has played some goodins but none better than that. Mitchell Johnson is under it. But de Villiers also got a piece of the action as the lead neared 400. De Villiers just rocks back, swivels. The Phoenix lead the Wanderers in the first of thven's A-League matches. Jeremy Brockie opened the scoring in the opening minute and he had plenty of help in windy Wellington. We talk about the wind and if we could give a goal to the wind, there is one. But Brockie will claim it and his rich vain of goal scoring form continues. They lead 1-nil late in the contest. Last night the Mariners went to the top of the A-League table thanks to their win over Adelaide. While the Roar and jets both had a player sent off in their clash. The jets warned earlier in the week that they would get under Besart Berisha's skin but he was soon under theirs netting a penalty just before half time. Tensions were building and soon boiled over seconds later. Paartalu has come flying in, he could find himself in a bit of trouble here. Thomas Broich has been sent off for that. Paartalu, I thought, was going to be in trouble. Apparently not. Thomas Broich both copped Reds and Nick Montgomery scored the winner just 14 minutes from full time to keep them undefeated. Chelsea remain winless after a shock loss to West Ham this morning. In other the results:

After two scoreless draws in charge, the early signs were good and Chelsea. Gets the goal. 1-nil at the break but West Ham hit back in the second half. He has done it for West Ham against his former club. And then it turned into a nightmare for the visitors. It ended 3-1, Chelsea winless in seven Premier League games. He just needs some good news or something somewhere to get things going at Chelsea, what do you need? To win. It was a goal fest at reading. Manchester United and the royals just couldn't stop scoring. It's another one. Three for three after 30 minutes and defender Rafael was made the scapegoat by Sir Alex Ferguson. He looks a very unhappy man at the moment. It was 4-3 at the interval. After the break, Australian player embarrassed himself but luckily didn't play the price. Then an even bigger mistake. No goals to report in the second half. 4-3 the final score. Everton was way to Manchester City where they scored first. However, the match finished 1-1 thanks to a penalty from Tevis. Liverpool secured a 1-nil win over south hampton. It had been coming for quite a while. This had also been coming for quite a while. A goal out of nothing. The Australian finally finding the back of the net in the EPL as Villa drew with the struggling Rangers. David Beckham has bowed out of the mais with a 3-1 final. To win their second cup title in as many years. He didn't score but received a standing ovation when he was subbed off in the final minute. David Beckham exits the MLS stage and he exits it a two time MLS Cup champion back-to-back titles for Beckham to take off into the sunset. There is still no word on where he will play next. The Wallabies have completed a busy 12 months about the last-minute win over Wales in Cardiff. There was a shock result with England overwhelming the All Blacks while Australia left it late against the Welsh. Down 12-9 in the dying seconds, the Wallabies went wide and were rewarded. Good ball Berrick Barnes. Harris, got it away. Luke Burt, Luke Burt scores! -- Kurtley Beale scores. It was the perfect farewell for retaining captain Nathan Sharpe who had the last say with the conversion attempt. He leaves the game as the Wallabies most capped forward having played 116 Tests. Meantime, England shocked New Zealand with a stunning second half. England going on to win 38-21 and ends the All Blacks 20 match unbeaten run. Veteran coach Tim Sheens will once again be in charge of the Australian rugby league team next year. He was appointed for another 12 months allowing him to guide the kangaroos through next year's World Cup in the United Kingdom. It is his fifth term as national coach. Will Davson is in the box seat to claim a win in the final race of the super season currently leading race two. Craig Lowndes and Mark winter bottom are tackling for second points in the championship but unfortunately the Ford driver was brought undone by the first corner. It is disappointing. The bloke is incompetent and when I used to think Moff is brave, but he is just bloody stupid. He has demonstrated it so many times this year and yet again spoiled our race. Nissan and Mercedes are joining the V8s in 2013. The company skinges blew out to a 16 point lead in the second half but were pushed by the 36ers in the second half to hold on by three. There was a scare in the opening quarter as the Kings key man and the NBL's leading scorer was forced off with a shoulder injury. Oh man, this would be just a terrible blow. He is trying to get up. Oh no, that does not look good, he is a very tough player. He did return and his presence was felt as the Kings held off a second half come back from the 36ers to take the victory. That is all from me in sport for now but I will be back with some more very shortly. Well, the circus has official ly come to the Vatican with thousands of performers putting on a show for the Pope. The celebrations marking the year of faith. He clearly enjoyed the colourful performance, even getting a chance to meet a lion kub. Folk groups and clowns all took part in the fest activities. Let's take a look at the weather now.

Skies generally clear in Queensland due to a ridge of high pressure.

Thanks for your company here on news now. The top stories are coming up again in just a moment, plus violent clashes erupt between police and protestors in Mexico.

P This hour's top stories, the Government has unveiled a scheme to rein in soaring power prices but the opposition says it is nothing more than a stunt. A 21-year-old man charged with murder over a hit and run that left a teenager dead in Brisbane's south. And Northern Territory police still on the hunt for a 4m crock believed to have taken a nine-year-old boy. And the Sky Weather forecast:

Northern Territory police are hunting a 4m monster crocodile believed to have taken a nine-year-old boy. The boy went missing from a remote community in East Arnhem Land yesterday. Police say a major search is under way for a child who went missing believed to be taken by a crocodile near Nhulunbuy in East Arnhem Land. They say the boy was taken at around 12 noon yesterday by what they are saying is a 4m monster croc near the out station 80km south of Nhulunbuy. We have had police and searchers at the location throughout the night spotting for the suspected crocodile. Overnight, a number of smaller crocodiles were sighted but to this time, the suspected crocodile and the missing child haven't been seen. Police say that friends and family who were with the boy when he went missing attempted to spear the crocodile, however, it dragged the boy out to deeper waters. When police arrived, they say they have spotted the croc on a number of occasions and have spot at it twice. They say this reaffirms the concerns about waterways across the Northern Territory. It's a tragic reminder that the waters around the Northern Territory are full of dangerous animals, crocodiles being the number one danger in the waters around the Northern Territory and if people are swimming in the waters, they need to take extreme care. Family and friends at the community, 80km south of Nhulunbuy are said to be in shock as they come to terms with the news. Meanwhile, police say they are not hopeful of a positive outcome. The federal opposition blames Friday's attack on a naval base on defence force cuts. They are not ruling out more arrests as they continue to question a 40-year-old man over the robbery. Police are still trying to establish at this point in time whether or not this person has received the weapons shortly after the commission of the offence or is in fact the or one of the principal offenders. All of the missing weapons were recovered from inner city unit. Schools in NSW are planning to ban one on one meetings between students and parents in a bid to try and avoid allegations of inappropriate behaviour. It follows reports of a growing number of teachers who are refusing to be alone in meetings as more parents are tending to side with their kids regardless of their behaviour. Figures show that more than 60 teachers have been stood down over the past four years for misconduct. It's recommended that at least two teachers are present at future meetings. A plan that has been backed by the States P and C. Two explosions and a shooting have been heard at a US base in Afghanistan according to a witness. The Taliban has claimed responsibility saying that they carried out an attack on the compound and did inflict casualties. NATO officials are yet to comment. We are going to take you live now to Tahrir Square in Egypt where the local time is approaching quarter to eight in the morning. People are still protesting against President Mohammed Morsi over the decision to grant himself extensive powers but there have also been rallies in the country in support of the President. President Morsi has announced that the country will vote on December 15 on a new consteugs. CBS reporter Holy Williams has the latest. While tens of thousands of Morsi supporters took to the streets today, but it follows days of protests by his points who accuse Mr Morsi of behaving like a dictator. The President gave himself broad new powers that he says he needs until Egypt has a new democratic constitution. The panel write that constitution, rushed to finish a final draft on Friday, working through the night. But the panel is dominated by Mr Morsi's Islamist allies. In the final draft, it includes a bigger role for Sharia law, it empowers the State to protect... all of those things have angered many Egyptian liberals. He said this evening he will put that draft constitution on a referendum, a popular vote in just 15 days time. His points are in a difficult situation because he has played a very clever hand. There is a good chance of his constitution will pass at the referendum because some Egyptians like it and others feel that any constitution is better than no constitution when Egypt desperately needs stability. And even if the draft doesn't pass the popular vote, well, Mr Morsi will still have his expanded new powers. His points are talking about disrupting the referendum, they are talking about civil disobedience and beyond that, there may be very little they can do. Meanwhile, the military which has repeated ly interfereed in politics, is so far silent. Violent clashes have erupted between police and protestors in Mexico. Officers were forced to fly tear gas at demonstrators outside the country's Congress as the new Mexican President was sworn in. Protestors hurled Molotov cocktails towards the building and set security buildings alight in an attempt to disrupt the swear anything ceremony. Several people were injured during the fighting. An American footballer with the Kansas City Chiefs has shot dead his girlfriend and then committed suicide in front of team officials at the stadium. Details of the shooting are still under investigation. The Kansas City Chiefs are mourning the logs of a fellow team mate today. Police say 25-year-old line backer Jovan Belcher shot and killed himself in a parking lot at Arrowhead Stadium after murdering his girlfriend. When the officers arrived, when they were pulling up, they observed a black male who had a gun to his head and he was talking to a couple of coaches out in the parking lot. As officers pulled up and began to park, that when is they heard the gun shot and it appears that the individual took his own life. Just 20 minutes prior to his suicide, Belcher shot his girlfriend several times at Herman Van Rompuy home. Police say she died a short time later at a local hospital. We heard that they had been arguing in the past as far as recently they had been arguing before the shooting occurred this morning. The team leader released a statement on the shooting saying:

US army is boasting about the latest high-tech virtual battlefield. It may look like a video game but soldiers say it saves lives. I have just been hit. Panther seven is down. Stz a scenario soldiers hope they never enskournt. A convoy hit by explosives. You ask for, you can have. If you want ambushes. Thursday we watch aid program that can train soldiers all over the United States to detect landmines and explosives. In this virtual scenario, the driver of the vehicle stays in contact with the gutter as the enemy attacks. We are getting fire from somewhere. I'm looking at my camera. They want this experience to be as real as possible. All of the equipment in the vehicless that they use are just like the ones that they would if they were out in the field. You can even change the weather conditions. You see snow is falling down here. Mistakes are easy here, we can correct mistakes here, we can't there. They say the program is based on situations he and other soldiers have already been through. We have done research calling personnel that we know that have just recently returned so these scenarios are as up-to-date as we can possibly make them. The goal is to make sure that the men and women that train are better prepared for the hidden dangers on the battlefield. This is news now, the top stories are coming newspaper just a moment, plus all of the latest sport with Sam as the South Africans continue to build a strong lead against Australia in the third Test.

P The top stories: the Prime Minister has announced a plan that she says will reduce household power prices from 2014. The announcement saying that pressuring States and Territories to take action on sushlging prices. A man has been charged with murder over a hit and run that left a teenager dead in Brisbane south. The 21-year-old will face a Brisbane court tomorrow. And Northern Territory police are hunting a 4m crocodile believed to have taken a nine-year-old boy. He went missing in East Arnhem Land yesterday. And the forecast:

all the sport now with Sam and South Africa really building a big lead in this Test. Hashim Amla and South Africa continue to punish the Australian bowlers on day three of the deciding Test in Perth. Hashim Amla has made 150 with Kallis the only wicket to fall today. Unbeaten on 99 overnight, Hashim Amla needed just three balls to reach triple figures. There it is, off the hips and there is another hundred to Hashim Amla. His terrific run scoring continues. A new day failed to bring a change in fortune for the Aussie bowlers. Stark claimed the first break through removing Kallis. But de Villiers also got a piece of the action as the lead neared 400. De Villiers just rocks back, swivels. Sydney FC will get their first chance to impress Frank Farina when they take on the hart tonight. A lucky goal was all that separated the sides. There is no doubting Jeremy Brockie's form this season but he had help with the opening goal against the Wanderers. He misjudges it. We talk about the wind and if we could give a goal to the wind, there is one but he will claim it. The judgment was better this time around as the Phoenix remained the more likely outfit. Brockie still a constant threat. The one-way Wellington traffic only continued in the second half. The Wanderers best chance came at the death but the Phoenix held on for a 1-nil victory. a man down after explosive clash in Brisbane. They were expecting a firey match, and Besart Berisha almost led to a goal and came close to capitalising off a free kick. That is normally meet and drink. It soon paid off, awarded a penalty close to half time. Berisha stepping town surely get under the jets skin. The tensions were building and exploded just minutes later. Paartalu has come flying in, he could find himself in a bit of trouble here as well. Josh Mitchell copping his second yellow and Thomas Broich a straight red but a reprieve for Paartalu. Somehow Thomas Broich has been sent off for that. Paartalu I thought was going to be in trouble. Apparently not. Both sides down to 10 men. Half time gave them much needed time out. The Roar just furious with themselves after this missed chance in the 69th minute. Too casual. But the Roar held on for just their third win of the season. Adelaide travelled to Gosford looking to hang on to top spot on the ladder and they made the perfect start. What a goal. What a spectacular strike from Bruce Djite. The Reds were set to head to the break in front before the Mariners struck. Josh Rose to score. Straight through the on goal keeper. He wasted the opportunity to grab the lead after the break and there was no hiding Graham Arnold's disappointment but his mood improved when the Mariners finally found the winner. Super straight, the Mariners are in front. Central coast grabbing the three points and leap flogging Adelaide into top spot. David Beckham has capped off his stint with another title with the LA Galaxy. They came from behind to beat Houston Dynamo 3-1 in the final. He didn't score but received a standing ovation when he was substituted off in the final minute of the match. He still doesn't know where he will play next. I have no idea. More importantly, I'm happy that I'm wearing this uniform today. I'm happy that I've been part of this club for six years. It was their second consecutive title. They left it late but the Wallabies prodeurd retiring skipper Nathan Sharpe with a fairy tail finish against Wales this morning. Kurtley Beale scored the winning try for Australia right on full time. After 116 Tests, this was it for the Wallabies most capped forward. Nathan Sharpe's final match. It was never going to be easy though with the Welsh looking to rebound from six straight losses. They showed plenty of enterprise in the first half. Surprising the Wallabies with their willingness to run the ball from anywhere. What a break out this is. The boot of beel gave the Wallabies a lead at the break but it was the Welsh that had the better of the opportunities with a tryless first half.

Wales kicked their way to a 12-9 lead in the second half and looked to have the match won before the Wallabies went wide with the last play of the game. Good ball Berrick Barnes. Harris got it away. Kurtley Beale scores!Sharp given the file say with the conversion attempt. This final act and a wonderful career. It is coming round. Oh, just falls short. Thank goodness. The Wallabies home 14-12 giving them a 3-1 record on their spring tour. The perfect finish for Sharpe. Meantime, the All Blacks unbeaten 20 match run has come to an end in spectacular fashion. Necessity have done it. England coming up with a remarkable second half to shock the world champions. Through the first two, through three, and England are going to score again. It is magnificent. There is no other word. This pretty much summed up the All Blacks day. An intercept as England came up with a record breaking 38-21 win. Veteran coach Tim Sheens will once again be in charge of the Australian rugby league team next year. He has been appointed for another 12 months allowing him to guide the kangaroos through next year's World Cup in the United Kingdom. It is his fifth term as national coach. Chelsea remains winless under the new manager after a shock loss to West Ham this morning.

After two scoreless draws in charge, the early signs were good for the new manager and Chelsea at Upton Park. He gets the goal. 1-nil at the break but West Ham hit back in the second half. He has done it for West Ham against his former club. And then it turned into a nightmare for the visitors. It ended 3-1, Chelsea winless in seven Premier League games. Do you just need some good news or something somewhere to get things going at Chelsea, what do you need? To win. It was a goal fest at reading. Manchester United and the Royals just couldn't stop scoring. It is another one. 3 for 3 after 30 minutes and defender Rafael was made the scapegoat by Sir Alex Ferguson. He looks a very unhappy man at the moment. It was 4-3 at the interval. After the break, Australian Adam Federichi embarrassed himself but luckily didn't pay the price.No goals to report in the second half, 4-3 the final score. Everton was away to Manchester City where they scored first. However, the match finished 1-1 thanks to a penalty from Karlos it's Tevics. Liverpool secured a win over South Hampton. This had also been coming for quite a while. A goal out of nothing. The Australian finally finding the back of the net in the EPL as villa drew with the struggling Rangers. The Sydney Kings have rebounded from their loss to Perth with a heart felt win over Adelaide today. They were pushed by the 36ers to hold on by three. There was a scare in the opening quarter as the Kings key man and the NBL's leading point scorer was forced off with a shoulder injury. That doesn't look good. Oh no, the shoulder there. Oh man, this would be just a terrible blow. He is trying to get up. Oh no. He is a very tough player. He did return and his presence was felt as the Kings held off a second half come back from the 36ers to take victory. That is all from me in sport for now. Thank you very much.
