AFL charges expected this morning. SAMATHA ARMYTAGE:
Breaking overnight -

A 94-year-old robbed
in his Sydney home. Kevin Rudd accused of hypocrisy as a photo of his youngest boy
enjoying a cigar, goes viral. Also, cue the screaming fans.

We need to get her out there.

You can't save everyone. When can I go? Matt Damon talks movies, family
and Speedos.

(SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. #

Good morning. Matt Damon has made a flying visit
for the premiere of his new movie. His plane was delayed for several
hours, so he was cutting it fine.

But you managed to grab him?Squeeze in and grab him. He's great.I love him.One of the good guys of Hollywood.It is a simple Hollywood.It is a simple thing, when you interview a huge Hollywood celebrity and they remember your name, he is brilliant for that kind of stuff.When he was out for the Bourne movies, I sat down to interview him and he said, " interview him and he said, "I love your boots." And you taught me that. You thought he was using your line. You taught me, always compliment a lady's accessories. I went there determined to prove he wasn't as good as everyone thought and ended up falling in love with him myself. We are all going to fall a little in love with Matt Damon this morning.

Also this morning,
we ramp up our million-dollar week by putting $200,000 on the line. We could be calling you. So let's get under way
with a Seven News update from Nat. Good morning. Essendon's Mark Thompson
has conceded he's likely to be charged by the AFL when it hands down its findings
on the ASADA investigation today. Nick McCallum is outside
coach James Hird's house. Nick, what did Thompson have to say?

Well, Nat, there is mounting speculation this morning that the AFL will lay charges against several Essendon officials, including James Hird. As you mentioned, the charges are probably going to be are probably going to be along the lines of conduct prejudicial to the AFL. Mark Thompson did say last night on Fox Footy he had been warned by Essendon's legal advisors he could faigs charges. But he will resist the pressure to resign and expects James Hird to do the same. Now, Bomber Thompson is a former Essendon premiership player, three times he plays, a former captain and coached Geelong to two premierships. He does not want his reputation tarnished by all of this. He said he does not want this on his tombstone. does not want this on his tarnished by all of this. He said he
does not want this on hisTombstone. Here is some of what he had to say.

It's your whole life, not just your
life, your kids your family, So I don't want it
on my...on my tombstone.

If the AFL does lay charges today, Essendon will have two weeks to respond.OK, we wait and see. Nick, thank you very much.

Police have charged a man over a fatal hit-and-run crash
in Melbourne. The man was arrested in Forest Hill
last night and his car was impounded. It's alleged he hit and killed
a 42-year-old man in the same suburb on Friday night,
then drove off. The man's in custody and
will face court later this morning. He's told police he was driving
his motorised scooter into his home at Harris Park

when a man and woman
followed him inside. They ransacked his home,
stealing coins, and then fled. The male suspect is described
as mid 30s with a large build wearing a grey jumper. The woman is described only
as short and fat. 1,700 workers at Adelaide's
Holden manufacturing plant will vote this morning on a tough
new enterprise bargaining agreement to secure the company's future. Holden says it needs
to save $15 million annually to ensure it continues making cars
beyond 2016. A yes vote from its workforce
is the first condition needed for Holden to stay in Australia but the company must still secure
extra government funding. Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey
is blaming the car industry's woes on Labor's proposed
fringe benefits tax changes. If people aren't buying them
because they haven't got the money, there is no future
for the car industry. Voting begins at 6:00 this morning, but a decision may not be known
until Friday. Ahead this Sunrise -

another embarrassing batting
performance condemns Australia to defeat
in the Ashes series. But first, here's Kochie.

Do we need to talk about the cricket? Let's focus on the finance. The Dow Jones index is settling down 3 to 5 points at the moment. The Dow Jones index is settling down
3 to 5 points at the moment. A bit of disappointment after Japan's slower-than-expected economic figures. Europe was mixed. To our region,

There's finally some good news
for motorists with petrol prices falling. Craig James is at CommSec
with the details. Morning. Craig, what's behind the fall
and will prices drop any further?

Yes, cost, this will take our mind off the cricket. Two pieces of good news, the world oil price has come down, a bit more balance between supply and demand on world markets and the Aussie dollar has gone up. Got to remember most of our fuel tends to be imported, marly up tends to be imported, marly tends to be imported, mar particularly from the Singapore exchange. The Aussie dollar has gone up from 8. up from 8.5 to 91. up from 8.5 to 91.5 cents so it increases the cost of imported fuel. We won't save a motza but it could fall 2 to 3 cents a litre. If it could edge away from $ could edge away from $1. could edge away from $1.50 a litre, a lot of people's hip pockets will feel better off.And we will feel better, the main thing..Thank you, that almost got my mind off the cricket.

Another woeful batting collapse has condemned Australia to its
third straight Ashes series defeat. England's 74-run win
in the fourth test in Durham gives the hosts
an unbeatable 3-0 series lead. A career-best 7 wicket haul from
Ryan Harris kept Australia's hopes
of victory alive. Chasing 299, the visitors
cruised to 1/147. before falling apart completely.

The last nine wickets fell
for just 77 runs - yes! As England stormed to a dramatic
victory late on day four. COMMENTATOR: That's the wicket that
gives England the Ashes series win for 2013. Our batting performance, and especially our middle order -
me included - wasn't good enough today.

Under statement, Clarky.

Stuart Broad claimed
six second-innings wickets. The Titans have climbed back
inside in the NRL's top eight with an upset against the Bulldogs
at ANZ Stadium last night. The game was in the balance
until deep in the second half when Gold Coast flyer Kevin Gordon
sealed a victory with his third try of the match. The loss all but ends
the Bulldogs' hopes of clinching a spot in the top four.

Boy, who would have tipped that last night? The girls, of course.

Gold Coast is considering heading
to the AFL Tribunal tonight to challenge
the 3-match misconduct ban handed to rugged defender
Campbell Brown. Brown is adamant his kick to the
face of Melbourne's Jamie Strauss was accidental. Essendon veteran Dustin Fletcher has
been offered a 2-match suspension for a high bump. And Bombers ruckman faces
a 1-match ban for rough conduct.

Just a piece of advice, if you have friends anywhere in the UK don't, just switch your phone off, don't answer it.Is that who is calling? That will be the reloes.Yes, your father-in-law.Just hearing (with English accent) 3-0, 3-0.Is that it?No, we need redemption. Redemption? Sounds like backyard cricket, where you change the rules.

Sunrise brought to you by Redspot. Find out how Redspot
is positively different to the big rental car companies. Go with the underdog and save. It's shaping as D-day
for the Bombers. The AFL is tipped to act over
Essendon's supplement scandal. The club's chairman, Paul Little
and chief executive, Ray Gunston, were tight-lipped
as they left Windy Hill last night after a day
of high-powered meetings. Goodnight, gentlemen. No, I've got no comment
to make tonight, thanks. It's been more than a week since
the AFL received ASADA's report into Essendon's controversial
2012 supplements program. Let's get the latest now. Nick McCallum is outside the home
of Essendon coach James Hird and Seven News AFL reporter
Tom Browne also joins us. Nick, Hird is among those expected
to face charges?

That's right, Sam, later this morning it is expected the AFL will lay charges against several Essendon officials, as you say, including James Hird. A charge similar to conduct prejudicial to the AFL. Now, last night, on Fox Footy, Mark Thompson, the senior assistant coach, conceded he had told by Essendon's legal advisors he could be charged but he said he would resist pressure to resign himself and he expected James Hird to do the same. And this is the reason why.

I think anyone can really
understand the pressure. This is the thing that you don't
want to be labelled with, that we're going to have to fight
for. Look, I don't want my reputation
tarnished by this.

Mark Thompson of course, is a three-time premiership players with the Bombers, he was captain of the team and of course coached Geelong to premierships. He said he does not want this crisis to feature on his tombstone.Tom, what are you hearing this morning? It has been dragging on for six months, the AFL commission met yesterday to talk about it. about it. There was some speculation there was a media conference at 9 but they haven't put out an alert to let us know so it is unlikely in let us know so it is unlikely inAnd contacted the AFL late last 98 and they wouldn't confirm the -- and they wouldn't confirm the time of the conference. But I think the lawyers were dotting the Is and crossing the Ts on all the summary of charges. I think it will depend on when the advice is finalised but I think it is today. But I still think it is a good chance it will be early this morning.Just for the uninitiated, the lawyers went through the report, put a recommendation to the commission yesterday, the commission would have had its say. Then it goes back to the lawyers to make sure all the Is are dotted and the Ts crossed so there is limits, it limits the risk, if you like, a legal contention in the next day or so, so Thanksgiving rr got -- so they've got to be that careful?They do, Kochie. The process from here is unclear. In fact, I think Essendon would like some clarity. I have asked sources there and haven't got a great response in the the James Hird camp will be given a chance to response once the charges are laid and then a good chance it will head to court because Hird and Little will want to clear their names.If you hear anything while we are on air, sort of break back in and let us know. Certainly will.Fascinating.

Still to come - some big news

Yes! Or does this site go too far? No. No, these are extreme parkers. It is a great wailway to deal with it. Put it on a web site.Exactly. There is a Melbourne breakfast radio show, when we used to live down there, used to shame bad drivers. Used to read out their numberplate and dob them in.Nasty!

The AFL is due
to hand down its decision on the Essendon drugs scandal later this morning. Already the club's assistant coach
has been told he could be charged. Nick McCallum is outside
coach James Hird's home. Nick, what charges could be laid?

Well, Nat, speculation is mounting that the AFL, later this morning, will lay charges against several Essendon officials, including coach James Hird. The charges are likely to be conduct causing prejudice against the AFL. Now, as you mentioned, senior assistant coach Mark Thompson conceded last night, he had been warned by Essendon's legal advisors he could face charges. But he says he will resist the pressure to resign. He expects James Hird to James Hird to do the same. Because he doesn't want to tarnish reputation. He is a three time premiership player with Essendon, a captain of the club and of course, coached Geelong to two premierships. He said he doesn't want this scandal to appear on his tombstone.High stakes, thank you.

The economy is set to top
the campaign agenda today with the release
of Treasury's economic outlook. The pre-election forecasts will
force Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott to focus on the real cost
of their election promises. Seven News political reporter
Patrick Condren has the latest from Canberra. Patrick, are we expecting
any surprises?

Good morning, Nat. Not really. It's expected to confirm a $ expected to confirm a $30 billion deficit and also to forecast a rise in unemployment. The government Labor Party will use this to try to put pressure on Tony Abbott and the Libls to release -- liberals to release their funding costs. Both parties continue to battle over who is best placed to handle the economy. Now, the pre-election fiscal outlook, or fiscal outlook, or PEFO, as it is culeak wale known is expected to be released here at 10:00 today. Of course, -- culocually known. Both parties will try to use it to bath up the other one. Stay tuned for the PEFO.PEFO? You Canberra guys love your lingo. Thanks for informing us.

Amanda Bachmann is at Holden's Elizabeth plant. Amanda, are they likely to vote yes?

Nat, we are hearing reports that the vote is likely to be a yes vote. They are voting on some tiff pay terms and conditions. It is a pay freeze over. The next three years. But it is better than pay cuts that had been touted earlier this year. It is the first step for Holden if they want to keep manufacturing in Australia. They need to keep working as well as 1,000 spread over Victoria. The results of the vote will come into Elizabeth later in the week and Victoria, so Holdenen will have some clues and hopefully let us know before the let us know before the end of the week.Thank you.

Australia can officially
begin planning for this summer's
return Ashes series after losing the fourth test
by 74 runs in Durham overnight. Ryan Harris claimed seven
second-innings wickets, leaving the tourists
needing 299 for victory. The chase started well with David Warner and Chris Rogers
putting on a century stand. But things fell apart
spectacularly - Australia's last nine wickets
falling for 77 runs as England clinched
a 3-0 series win. I think it was still
a pretty good batting wicket, it took some good bowling to find
a way to break through. The series wraps up at The Oval
next week. Hawthorn superstar Lance Franklin is set to return
from a hamstring injury in Friday night's AFL blockbuster
against Collingwood. Meanwhile,
Gold Coast will decide today whether to accept the 3-match ban
offered to Campbell Brown for unreasonable contact. Essendon veteran Dustin Fletcher
has been offered two games for a high bump while Paddy Ryder faces
a 1-match ban for rough conduct. The Titans have kept
their NRL finals hopes alive with a determined victory
over the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium. Kevin Gordon
bagged a hat-trick for Gold Coast who have replaced Canberra
in the top eight. Titans co-captain Greg Bird
was left fuming after copping a leg-twisting tackle
from Greg Eastwood. That's likely to come under scrutiny
from the match review panel.

Well done, Gold Coast. OK, let's check the footy tips and see what the matches meant to the table. The boys tipped 7.Well done.

The girls continue to maintain a 7-point lead.Didn't you change to Port Adelaide with Simon on Friday?

Kevin Rudd's youngest son,
Marcus, has hijacked the election headlines
this morning. News Corp is reporting after

Gee, I hope we don't all get caught up in our son's Facebook pages. It is a hot topic this morning.

and Australian Workers Union
national secretary Paul Howes. Antismoking campaigners say it's a bad image to be sending
to other young people. Jeff, should everything
the PM's family does be scrutinised?

You've got boofy adult children, the same as me, should we be dragged into this? The poor kid.It seems to be the Prime Minister has a very normal son.Exactly right.Good luck to him. I often think the more seniority you get in public life, the more likely you are more often going to embarrass your children than they are ever going to embarrass you. I say today child, good luck, I don't know him. Very normal. It is almost an abuse to drag children into election campaigning.I agree.What is he? About 20 years old?Paul, he is however on his dad's digital campaign team.Should he be a bit more thoughtful what he posts on Facebook?For once, I'm in complete agreement with Jeff. He is a 20-year-old kid, passionate about politics, clearly loves his dad and on the campaign. Like all 20-year-old kids, posts sill apictures on -- silly pictures on Facebook. I don't know what people who are outraged about this want Kevin Rudd to do. Because if he can control what Kevin Rudd can do, his children do in their social life, not only will be be a great Prime Minister he will be a great dad.The kid might be a better prime minister than the father.There is a serious point, you wonder why people don't like going into politics because of the prying into people's private lives, this is a classic example. I feel so bad for Marcus today. That kid will probably be kicking himself all day about the issue. He will be worried about the impact on his dad will be. It is shameful it has been published like that. SnoI think he will take it in his stride. I remember as a young man, I tried a pipe before a cigarette while at Sunday school and then moved on to cigar Sunday school and then moved on to cigar. I think this kid might become a hero in the short term.Tony Abbott has unveiled a plan to fix black spots?On one hand, the Coalition talks about cuts they will be making, you saw last night, the opposition spokesman on communication, Malcolm Turnbull talk about a need for a cheaper version of the NBN if a Coalition government is elected but today $ is elected but today $100 million rolled out to blackspots, no-one is opposed to blackspots being eradicated but is it the key issue in regional Australia at the moment? Is it what we should be spending the money on? Frankly, under a Coalition government I would rather see the money go into the development of technology of the future, not development of technology of the current period.What do you say? The black spots are very annoying.I can only say, if anyone can fix the black spots they'll get my vote. I have got three or four close to the studio here in Melbourne, I will pass on to Tony Abbott to address immediately. The only winner out of this is Telstra. Every time you drop out, someone rings you back, you ring them, it is not only inconvenient, it is very, very expensive. If it works, I am all for it.Gentlemen, thank you for your time. Paul, congratulations. Announcing The engagement to Olivia. Weren't announcing anything.David, please!No intention of discussing my private life here. Like Marcus. Fair enough. We do say congratulations.We'll buy back time, Paul, whatever happens, congratulations from the conservative side as well.Thank you, Geoffrey. Appreciate that. Obviously you are not putting it on YouTube.I don't think it is Paul Howe's style.Thank you for embarrassing me, guys.Very good.

Is your child one of the 10% of Aussie kids
suffering from a food allergy? A world-first vaccine trial
in Melbourne could save their life. Scientists are going
to test the impact of the common tuberculosis vaccine
BCG. It's said to fight infection
and possibly food allergies. Here to tell us more
is Sunrise GP Ginni Mansberg.

I love your outfit, we have got practically the same outfit on. How does BCG work?It is actually a live bacteria, the one that causes tubercial oats. We used to do it all the time, just gets stuck in the skin and causes a scar. Not brilliant on adults but great in kids. They noticed over time kids who had it seemed to have less allergies. But the studies around it look dodgy. In places like India, where they get the vaccine, the kids seem to get less allergies and asthma. It changes the immune system forever. The guys in Melbourne have said let's see something that is cheap and been around for 50, 60 years work?What could the breakthrough have on our health system?Huge. We are looking at $ system?Huge. We are looking at $3 billion a year on these problems. For kids who are allergic to food like nuts, seafood, eggs, a massive cost. If we could reduce it by 50% cost.

Kochie and Sam. Hello again. You'll see Matt Damon and Sam
this hour.

Very special.

And we ramp up
our million-dollar week, by putting $200,000 on the line. But our big story this morning
is out of Melbourne. The AFL is expected to lay charges
against Essendon today. Our team is spread out
across the city - Nick McCallum
is at James Hird's place, Tom Browne
is at Essendon's headquarters And Seven News AFL editor
Mark Stevens is at AFL House. More from them soon. But for now Nat has a wrap-up
of all the developments from the Seven Newsroom. The Essendon Football Club's drugs
saga is coming to a head today with the AFL due to hand down
its decision on charges later this morning. Nick McCallum is outside coach
James Hird's house. Nick, what can you tell us?

Well, Nat, it is speculated within serbl hours the AFL will lay charges against several Essendon officials, including coach James Hird. Essendon officials met well into the night last night with their legal advisors, let's take a look.

As AFL talks rolled on,
Essendon wasn't feeling chatty... REPORTER: Is there any new
information, James? Not that I'm aware of, no. No, I've got no comment
to make tonight, thanks. Goodnight, gentlemen. Assistant coach Mark Thompson
had more to say - admitting legal advisers
have told him he could be charged if the AFL decides to act. There's a possibility...

Possibility yeah. Mm. But he said he'll resist
any pressure to resign. Look, I don't want
my reputation tarnished. It's your whole life, not just your
life, your kids your family, it's going to be remembered forever. So I don't want it
on my...on my tombstone. It's believed James Hird
is on the brink of being charged with conduct
prejudicial to the AFL. Club doctor Bruce Reid
and footy boss Danny Corcoran are also in the gun. It's been more than a week since the
AFL received ASADA's interim report into Essendon's suspect
2012 supplements program. If charges against the club
are announced today, it's expected
they'll have 14 days to respond.

If charges against the club are announced today, it's expected they'll have 14 days to respond. Heard late yesterday sent an e-mail -- James Hird yesterday sent an e-mail to Essendon supporters saying all their support has been a source of strength and inspiration to him. Thank you for the wrap up.

Police in Sydney are searching for
a couple who robbed an elderly man after following him into his house. Sunrise Correspondent Nick Etchells
is in Sydney. Nick, this is a pretty
cowardly attack. Talk us through what happened.

Well, it was actually worse than cowardly. Because they are posing as good Samaritans, offering help. The 94-year-old was coming home on his motorised scooter and neededsistence getting into the house. -- needed assistance getting into the house. They offered to hem him, as soon as they were inside they pushed past him and just helped themselves. Ransacked the house. They made off with only coins. But here is a man who needs assistance from time to time and now doesn't feel safe asking for it. It man who was in his 30s and heavy sat and a woman they describe as short and fat.

Tony Abbott will today pledge
to fix mobile phone black spots if he wins the election. The $100 million plan will see
more base stations built in regional, remote
and outer metro areas over the next four years. Is this really the key issue in
regional Australia at the moment? Is it what we should be
spending this money on? The Coalition hopes $80 million
will be matched by mobile phone companies. Investigators are at the scene
of a blaze that ripped through an auto-wrecking
business in Brisbane's south. Sunrise correspondent
Michelle Tapper is at the scene. Michelle, two firefighters
were injured in the blaze.

Yes, they have both been taken to hospital and fortunately released with minor injuries. They tripped over a lot of debris that was here. At 11:30 last night they got the call and more than 40 firies attended the blaze. It was huge. It took more than three hours to put out. There is a lot of fuel inside the wrecking parts, lots of oil, LPG bottles and that kept providing fuel for the fire. As you can see, the damage is extensive. The back wall has fallen in. All the stainless steal and metal inside is completely warped and twisted. -- stainless steel and metal inside. It is devastating for the owners because they were flooded in 2011 and only just refurbished. Firies are here investigating because they believe the fire is suspicious, Nat.Thank you.

Victoria Police have charged a man over a fatal hit-and-run
in Melbourne. The 42-year-old was arrested
in Forest Hill last night and his car was impounded. It's alleged he hit and killed a man
in his 50s in the same suburb on Friday night, then drove off. in resolving
this particular instance. The man's been remanded in custody and will face court
later this morning. Coming up - an important date
for Apple fans. Find out what the tech giant
has in store for us now. But first, here's Kochie.

Wall Street barely flat, just down 6 points. European markets didn't go anywhere. points. European markets didn't go
anywhere. To our region, we had a good day based on terrific profit, led by JB Hi Fi, a great result there.

Iron ore price is up $ Iron ore price is up $5. Iron ore price is up $5.60.

There's finally some good news
for motorists with petrol prices falling. Craig James is at CommSec
with the details. Morning. Craig, what's behind the fall
and will prices drop any further?

By how much? Will they stay lower? What's causing itA lot of questions there. Hopefully I can get them right! Petrol price probably to fall by about 2 to 3 cents a litre. You won't get rich on it but it is a degree of relief after what we've been experienceing. Can it stay low? I don't have the answer to that one. The main reason is the Aussie dollar has bounced back. It was 88. has bounced back. It was 88.5 cents and now at 91 cents and the globalile price has come down.All the answers, no matter what we throw at him. Now time for sport.Thank you, Kochie.

Another woeful batting collapse has condemned Australia to its
third straight Ashes series defeat. England's 74-run win
in the fourth test in Durham gives the hosts
an unbeatable 3-0 series lead. A career-best 7 wicket haul
from Ryan Harris kept Australia's hopes
of victory alive. Chasing 299,
the visitors cruised to 1/147 before falling apart completely. The last nine wickets fell
for just 77 runs as England stormed to a dramatic
victory late on day four. COMMENTATOR: That's the wicket that
gives England the Ashes series win for 2013.

Our batting performance, and especially our middle order -
and certainly me included - wasn't good enough today. Stuart Broad claimed
six second-innings wickets. to challenge
the 3-match misconduct ban handed to rugged defender
Campbell Brown. Brown is adamant his kick to the
face of Melbourne's Jamie Strauss was accidental. Essendon veteran Dustin Fletcher has
been offered a 2-match suspension for a high bump. And Bombers ruckman faces
a 1-match ban for rough conduct. The Titans have climbed back
inside in the NRL's top eight with an upset against the Bulldogs
at ANZ Stadium last night. The game was in the balance
until deep in the second half when Gold Coast flyer Kevin Gordon
sealed a victory with his third try of the match. Dogs forward Greg Eastwood
is likely to face scrutiny from the match review panel for a leg-twisting tackle
on Greg Bird. South Sydney will decide today whether to fight the 2-game
suspension handed to Sam Burgess for his controversial
squirrel grip on Melbourne centre Will Chambers. It's the sixth time Burgess has been
charged by the match review panel since his NRL debut in 2010.

It's the golden no-no of sport, the squirrel grip.The golden no-no of anything. There is no place for the squirrel grip.Someone in the paper saying that's what you get for clamping down on the biff, people can't punch each other so they go the squirrel.Why the squirrel? Because you are grabbing their nuts. I didn't know how to put that introowords.Are we allowed to say that?Well, they're just nuts, squirrels eat nuts.OK, we get it! Got it now?All on the same page. Can we get a comment from Hopoate on that one?A bit more p extreme. Anyway.About that weather?Yes. Eddy, take it away. Eddy is at Ilkley this Ilkley this morning.If you are just tuning in and wondering what we are doing with Annabelle in the tuning in and wondering what we are
doing with Annabelle in

It's shaping
as D-day for the Bombers with the AFL tipped to act over
Essendon's supplement scandal.

James Hird has just spoken from his house as he was leaving for work, let's have a listen.Morning, James. Any word on the charges?Sorry?Any word on the AFL?Thanks, mate. Any word from word from the AFL?On?On the possibility of charges?Not yet, but yes, no, not yet.Is it fair your name and Reidy and dan seis being thrown around in these sorts of terms? thrown around in these sorts of terms??I think we all find it hard to believe that charges can be laid on individuals or the club when none of the players have been shown to be harmed by anything that has been given and we are dealing with the interim report, the report is not finalised. We are all sitting back staggered and shocked that charges can be laid on those grounds.Can you give an indication it will be today?Some indication it will be today, yesterday, last weekend. We know as much as you and get on with the day.You heard what Bomber Thompson said?No, what did he say? He said he de-s not going to be forced to resign because he doesn't want this to tarnish his reputation, obviously a greats reputation and expected the same for you, that you didn't want to bow to pressure because it is about your epiareitation because it is about your
epiareitation I think it is about a couple of things, our players haven't taken performance. things, our players haven't taken performance-enhancing drugs and that is why we are fighting. We don't believe we have done anything wrong on those grounds and we will fight. It is about the reputation. The football club is the greatest football club in Australia and we are going to protect the name. Personally, how affected are you? Well, it is what it is. We will see what happens the next couple of days but we will fight it. We will fight to protect our football club, the pliers and the people.Cheers. to protect our football club, the
pliers and the people.Cheers.

.That's James Hird, a short time ago, leaving for work.

Let's get the latest now. Nick McCallum is outside the home
of Essendon coach James Hird, Tom Browne is at Windy Hill and Mark Stevens
is at AFL Headquarters.

James Hird has just spoken, a man under stressHe certainly is but he is a man defiant, as you just heard. I think the significant think thing he said he has been shocked and staggered if the AFL could lay charges from an interim report. Remember, we have not rurd that the Essendon players have taken performing-enhancing drugs. Last night, his assistant, Mark Thompson told 'Fox Footy' of the tol it is taking on him. He has been told by Essendon's legal advisors he could face charges. But he is not going to bow to any pressure to resign, he thought the same of James Hird because he didn't want it to tarnish his rep taigsz. Here -- reputation, here is some of what he had to say. I don't think anyone can understand the pressure. It is not something we want to fight for. Look, I don't want
my reputation tarnished. It's your whole life, not just your
life, your kids your family, it's going to be remembered forever. So I don't want it
on my...on my tombstone.

Tom, it was a long day of meetings inside the Bombers'
bunker yesterday?

The board and the chief executive and the lawyers at Essendon yesterday. What are you hearing out of there?Kochie, obviously the negotiations yesterday between ASADA, the AFL and Essendon didn't produce a compromise. As you mentioned, Essendon were locked in talks here all afternoon. The new chairman, lit chairman, Paul chairman, Paul Little, also, Ray Gunston and James Hird, I think the significant development this morning there could be a number, perhaps even more than three Essendon officials involved. It could involve former high-performance manager Dean Robinson and Bomber Thompson might be involved. It is huge. It was interesting to here from James Hird and indeed, Bomber Thompson, they don't know the charges but they will find out this morning and it is interesting to gauge Essendon's response.You are at James Hird's house, we had the AFL Commission meeting last night, the lawyers are going through what the Commission concluded. What are you hearing? A press conference today? And what about the outcome amWe believe about 9 a.m. about 9 a.m., they almost got it done, high-level talks done, high-level talks here, we thought it would be done about 8:00, some time this morning. There may be detail and behind the charges but there might not be charges. We believe Hirdy will get chances to respond. That was a change of tack. It is a sign of a man who knows he is going to be charged. He is going to get on the front foot, he has got his legal team wound up and will fight to the death. Looking at penalties, Dean Bailey copped 16 rounds for the non-tanking saga where he didn't do anything wrong, you would have to think 16 you would have to think 16 rounds for Bayley, you would think more for Hirdy if it is more today.Will Essendon lose the premiership points? Because there is a log jamb outside the 8 with Carlton and west coast on nine wins, then North Melbourne and Adelaide and Brisbane just under the finals 8 and they come into finals contentionIt is a moot point, we think individuals first. The legal side is so messy for points, it may take the AFL longer to get it sorted out. The penalties for the officials first. OK, guys, if you hear anything, come back and break into us. Here is Sam.

A candidate in the federal election
is taking unusual steps to recruit volunteers
for his campaign and polling night. Buddy Rojek is running
for Clive Palmer's party. He's drawn up a flyer calling for helpers
for his election night party. The party promises a rocking night
with DJ's and mingling models. It goes on to say
if volunteers are lucky, they might get invited
back to party longer. We invited both Buddy Rojek
and Clive Palmer on the program but they didn't get back to us. So let's check in

with Seven News political reporters
Patrick Condren in Canberra and Alex Hart, who's travelling
with the PM in Townsville. Good morning. Patrick, we'll start with you. What's Buddy Rojek said
about his unusual flyer?

Well, I think Sam, unusual is the most polite way of putting this. He is unrepentant. He is not apologising for the flier apologising for the flier. He is desperate to get volunteers. He said lee is skint and can't afford to pay anyone. He is not a politician and not politically correct. When you talk about having booked a hotel for models and if you are lucky and behave yourself to invite you back, it is clear he it not politically correct. I have spoken to the Palmer camp this mornish and Clive's media bloke says Mr Palmer is monitoring the situation and will monitor the course throughout the day. As for me, I am off to cor ang mite, -- Corangamite, which is apparently Buddy HQ. I might have something for you tomorrow.You behave yourself.

Alex, Kevin Rudd is sure to focus
on the economy today with the release of Treasury's
pre-election economic outlook. What are we expecting?

That's right. I think sense Kochie tingling with excitement about this, the preelection fiscal outlook, PFOA. But don't let the geeky name fool you. This fool you. This document is the most independent, up-to-date outlook. It follows the release of the government's own economic statement 10 days ago. We expect the numbering will be fairly similar, unemployment on the rise, growth slowing and the budget getting bigger. But the opposition is saying it doesn't trust the government's numbers, it has to wait for PFEO to be released. It is saying it is crunch time, and the Coalition can't run away from the cuts it is making to make the promises. A big day of argy-bargy on the campaign trail.A big day for everyone, by the the campaign trail.A big day for
everyone, sound of it.

And Queensland's maverick candidates
are big news this morning. I want to show you the front page
of today's 'Courier Mail'. Labor and the Liberal
National Party are furiously courting Bob Katter. His preferences hold the key
to several Queensland seats that could still turn the tide
on 7 September. Now to the new sexual assault claims
against entertainer Rolf Harris. It's emerged three Australian women
have gone to police. He has always strenuously denied
all allegations against him. UK correspondent Martin Frizell
joins us from London. Good morning.

When he was arrested in March, it was because of a British woman who made the allegation of sexual misconduct against him in this country. And then no more was heard of it until he was rearrested of course, last week, when fresh allegations were put to him. These came from Australia, we understand, from the visit by Scotland Yard detectives. We know of two women who talked to Australian police, and the third one was news to us certainly here in the UK. It was an absolute shock to Rolf Harris, I can tell you. He hasn't said anything officially but he is allowing friends to speak on his behalf. He said the fresh claims are a massive blow. He said Rolf fully denies the allegations but the fact that more people have come forward comes as a shock mism he denies all the charges and will fight them. He has been dropped by one of the TV stations here, from an animal program, they found a new presenter for that and the investigation he is being investigated, linked but not directly to Jimmy Saville have made a 14th arrest, we understand a high-profile one. The police are not saying exactly who it is. But if you go on social media, there are at least three names people are talking least three names people are talking about. Two UK based, one is an international name but no-one is confirming it. I spoke to a national paper here in the UK, getting ready to go to press but he won't and we won't put names out on this channel here. It is a live inquiry. Rolf Harris is due to reenter bail in a week or two's time.Thank you. week or two's time.Thank you..

And still in the UK. - Prince Philip
is back in public. The 92-year-old has attended
his first public engagement since having abdominal surgery
back in June. It's a great pleasure
to be back in circulation again. (APPLAUSE)

The prince presented medals
at the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He's now expected to join the Queen
on summer holiday at Balmoral.

Now to speculation Apple fans could be celebrating
the launch of a new iPhone as early as next month. It's rumoured the new iPhone 5S will
make its debut on September 10 with some pretty high tech features. Val Quinn from gadgetguy.com.au
is here to sort fact from fiction. Good morning. A slow-motion camera
and fingerprint sensor are among the features
being talked about. Fiction or fact?

I think it is very likely that these will happen. Because with the iPhone 5 C, it will look very much like the iPhone 5 and Apple needs to wow customers. Because they are under a 'Mylo customers. Because they are under a customers. Because they are under lot of competition to put mazing things in it. A finger on the home button so it can tell it is you and your pass your button so it can tell it is you and your when browsing. A dual flash, to provide nice colour to the flash, so it is not so white and more detail in the camera, maybe 12 megapixels. Plus phraster and maybe a bit thinner as well.What is the 5 C? Different to the 5 S?Yes, rumours but a good chance, a 5 C is a low-cost iPhone which has a plastic back with an assortment of colours, not as powerful of as the 5 S but a cheaper way to compete with the android fans. Around the $ android fans. Around the $500.It looks disposal.But still $ looks disposal.But still $500.Oh! You wouldn't want to throw it out. Not for that unmuch money. -- not for that much money.

News, sport and weather are next. Then Matt Damon's identity crisis. It happens a lot.

He and I have talked about it. So we have this deal, when we are mistaken, we have to be very polite and do no damage to the other.Do you trust him to do that?Yes, he has been good about it so far, I haven't had any complaints.

So who is his mystery twin? And it's million-dollar week
on Sunrise. We're getting ready
to change someone's life, soon.

I believe that investing in local
schools, like this one here, is among the most important things
a government can ever do. Our Better Schools plan
means our kids can have world-class teaching, resources
and much more individual attention because we know that's what makes
the real difference. For the future, Australia needs
a highly skilled workforce to compete
with the rest of the world. That's why I need your support
to give our kids the very best education possible.

Coming up - the unlikely star
of 'The X Factor'. He's won over the judges
and Australia. Soon Georgie joins us live. But now, here's Nat
with a Seven News update. The AFL is expected to hand down
its findings into the Essendon's supplement
scandal this morning. Nick McCallum is outside the home
of coach, James Hird.

Who has just spoken to reporters.

Nick, Hird is also among those
expected to face charges?

James Hird is expected to be one of several Essendon officials in a few hours, to be formally charged by the AFL with conduct unbecoming, or conduct prejudicial to the AFL. He was defiant this morning. He said he would be shocked and staggered to be charged by the AFL, which is from what, after all, is an ASADA interim report. Here is some of what he had to say.I think we all find it hard to believe that the charges can be laid on individuals or the club when none of our players have been shown to take drugen, none of the players have been shown to be harmed and it is an interim report and not finalised. We are all sitting back and staggered that any shocks can be laid on those grounds.A big disparity there. He is saying the players didn't take performance-enhancing drugs. Could it be separate to banned drugs?Yes, there could be an issue with the wording here. I think Essendon does have an argument to suggest the AOD 9604 perhaps wasn't banned by ASADA and they might have got some type of approval, Stephen Dank might have got approval. I think WADA and ASADA are at odds over that. I don't want to get too complicated there but I think Essendon could be playing on words there in relation to the exact banned status and obviously, they are relying on that.Thank you. Hear more later.

An elderly man has told police
he's been followed home and robbed in Sydney's west. The 94-year-old says he was riding a mobility scooter
into his house at Harris Park and was followed inside
by a man and woman. Neighbours say
the victim had been living alone since his wife died
several years ago. He's a war veteran,
so it's a low act for anyone.

The couple were last seen
fleeing past the local shops. The owners of an auto-wreckers
in south Brisbane are devastated after the business was destroyed
by fire last night. They'd recently finished
refurbishing their Cooper Plains premises
after the 2011 floods. Two were treated for minor injuries.

This one was a particularly intense
fire with multiple explosions so it made it quite hazardous
for our blokes to fight the fire. Up to 12 cars were gutted. Fire investigators are at the scene. Workers at Adelaide's Holden
manufacturing plant have begun voting on a tough new
enterprise bargaining agreement to secure the company's future. Sunrise correspondent
Amanda Bachmann is at Holden's Elizabeth plant. Amanda, why's this necessary?

Well, basically, Nat, it is to keep Holden manufacturing cars in this country. Holden says if workers agree to the new tough pay and conditions it will save $ conditions it will save $15 million a year. As you mention, 1700 workers voting here during the day. There are also 1,000 workers in Victoria due to vote over the course of the next week. There are some reports they may abstain from the vote because the pay and conditions do not affect them. Even if workers do vote yes, it is still the first of many hurdles Holden has to overcome. The next will be the federal election and wait if they will get more government funding to see if Holden can continue to manufacture cars in this country.Thank you.

A large sinkhole has caused a hotel
resort to collapse

in Florida near Disneyworld. Staff at the hotel evacuated guests
from 48 rooms in two buildings. The sinkhole is in the middle of the
villa, and is about 15 metres wide.

They could do it because it started sinking slowly and they got everyone out.

There are no reports of injuries.

So they just watched it go down and get out?It is what I said to the news guys this morning and they said why.Lucky it doesn't havep happen to Mickey's Club house.Where is that?You don't have a three-year-old. Mikey Mouse. They watch Disney junior, 24 hours a a day.I thought it was a Port Adelaide club.I thought you are talking about a secret casino, but anyway...

Australia can officially
begin planning for this summer's return
Ashes series Ryan Harris claimed seven
second-innings wickets, leaving the tourists needing 299
for victory. The chase started well with David Warner and Chris Rogers
putting on a century stand. But things fell apart
spectacularly. Australia's last nine wickets
falling for 77 runs as England clinched
a 3-nil series win. I think it was still
a pretty good batting wicket. Once you got through the new ball it took some good bowling to find
a way to break through. The series wraps up at The Oval
next week. Hawthorn superstar Lance Franklin is set to return
from a hamstring injury in Friday night's AFL blockbuster
against Collingwood. Meanwhile, Gold Coast
will decide today whether to accept the 3-match ban
offered to Campbell Brown for unreasonable contact. Essendon veteran Dustin Fletcher
has been offered two games for a high bump while Paddy Ryder faces
a 1-match ban for rough conduct. The Titans have kept their NRL
finals hopes alive with a determined victory
over the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium. Kevin Gordon bagged a hat-trick
for Gold Coast who have replaced Canberra
in the top eight. Titans co-captain Greg Bird
was left fuming after copping a leg-twisting tackle
from Greg Eastwood. That's likely to come under scrutiny
from the match review panel.

We certainly understand today is the today and this morning is the morning for the Essendon. It will be cracked open.You have got confirmation? Charges laid today?It is out today, done today, most likely this morning. Let's check your weather now, Eddy is brecking crashing. your weather now, Eddy is brecking crashing. Love a good brekky crash? When we choose our homes for brekky crashes we try to choose something different. Here, at the Noble house they have an archery range. Go, Will. How does it done?It is a recurve beau, look down the barrel and use your fingertips.We thought the trampoline was dangerous.Yes, we thought we would mess it up, yes, it beats the trampoline.Sure does! Let's take a look at the weather. Shush!
