the Bombers were injected with an unknown substance
from Mexico. This morning,
a club legend speaks out. Egyptian security forces here
are clearly using live ammunition, they are firing into
the side streets. SAMANATHA ARMYTAGE: Our report
from the front line as more and more protesters die
in clashes with police. Plus, new this morning -
a proud dad. He's pretty loud and, of course,
extremely good looking.

Prince William talks of
sleepless nights, a new job and a family visit to Australia. The new battle
for your grocery dollar. Sam and Nat spends hours
getting ready each day but now see what
they really look like. It's scary!

(SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. # Right across Australia,
this is Sunrise on Seven. From Brekky Central,
Kochie and Sam. Ow! Welcome to the show. Stand up properly. They're here My chair just broke. I was so

Io want me to get off it. Can we just correct we do not spend hours a day in make-up.Oh! Really? day in make-up.Oh! Really??OK, I was an hour, but not hours.Add it together.Not pleural. Thanks for the chair fix.That's OK, it is the sort of bloke I am, if there is a puddle there, I'll though my jacket.

Also this morning, we'll put
another $200,000 on the line as part of our million-dollar week. But we'll begin with
a Seven News update. Here's Nat. A month-long state of emergency
has been declared in Egypt after a security forces crackdown
on two protest camps in Cairo turned into a bloodbath. At least 149 people
are reported dead after police stormed sit-ins held by supporters
of ousted president Mohammed Morsi. Among the dead -
British cameraman Mick Deane who was covering the clashes
for Sky News in London. The situation has triggered
widespread condemnation around the world.

Fairfax Newspapers are reporting Essendon players were injected
with a mystery drug purchased in Mexico by a man suffering
from a muscular disease. But officials at the club have been
unable to tell ASADA or the players exactly what the substance was. It comes amid mounting speculation the club will seek a court
injunction over the AFL's charges which were announced this week. I can't categorically say yes, but it seems to me that it may be
that's where it's headed. They really want to defend
what's taken place, they really want to defend
the charges that are laid before them now. Four club officials,
including coach James Hird, have been charged with bringing
the game into disrepute. ASADA's doping probe
is still ongoing. The Federal Labor Party has launched
two new television commercials attacking Tony Abbott. The ads, which began airing
last night, speculate the Coalition could make
cuts to schools and hospitals. I just feel like
you're hiding things, and I get the feeling
that if you win, we lose. Meanwhile, a nurses' union
commercial that claims the Coalition
will privatise hospitals has been labelled a blatant lie by
fact-checking service PolitiFact. Schapelle Corby could walk free
from her Indonesian prison cell as early as Saturday. The governor
of Bali's Kerobokan jail says there's no further technical barrier
to her being granted parole. No foreign prisoner there
has ever been granted parole but Schapelle's sister, Mercedes,
remains confident. Yeah, it's great news. One step closer to freedom. Schapelle Corby has served
less than half her 20-year sentence. Prince William has attended one
of his first official engagements since the birth of his son,
Prince George. He dropped in to the local show
in his hometown of Anglesey, in North Wales. Hundreds turned out in the rain
to greet him. William opened up
about dealing with dad duties. I have to say that I thought search-and-rescue
duties over Snowdonia were physically and mentally
demanding but looking after a 3-week-old baby
is right up there. William says
baby George is doing well. Ahead this Sunrise -
forget sex appeal, we have the woman too good looking
to be a politician. But first, here's Kochie. Thanks, Nat.

Finance news now and Wall Street is on the skids at the moment Finance news now and Wall Street is
on the skids at the moment it is just settling down after the close five minutes ago. Down around 113, 114 point. Disappointing earnings results from big retailers, including Macy's's in the US put the skids on the market and also expectation the Fed will start to taper off its stimulus very soon. To our region yesterday, we are basically lineball despite the massive profit from the Commonwealth Bank.

Australia is experiencing its
slowest wage growth in 13 years. Savanth Sebastian is at CommSec.
Morning. What's causing this?

Kochie, look, we've got to go back to March 2000 to get a slower period of wage growth but it is caused by the lacklustre level of activity across the economy. It is hampering the business sector and they are looking to alleviate the costs, it means moving to a much more flexible part-time work force to maintain profitability. It means wage growth will be subdued over the next six months or so. It months or so. It comes down to you want to see a pick up in wages it needs a pick up needs a pick up in the economy. The Reserve Bank will look at the slow wage environment and inflation won't be an issue. As unemployment ticks higher in the nox couple of months, perhaps another rate cut on the cards.Time to be nice to your boss.

Swans premiership coach Paul Roos has two clubs clamouring
for his services but still refuses to guarantee
a return to AFL coaching. Roos has been offered around
$1.5 million a season by the Demons and now the Brisbane Lions
have officially joined the race following the sacking
of Michael Voss. Look, at the moment I haven't got
my head around coaching at all.

So before I consider either job, that has to change immediate. that has to change that has to

At Carlton, Chris Judd
hasn't given up hopes of returning from a knee injury
this season. The Bulldogs are adamant
a lengthy injury toll will not stop them from contending
for the NRL premiership. Last year's beaten grand finalists
were strengthened in the run in to the finals
by the return of several stars headlined by reigning
Dally M Medallist Ben Barba. The Dogs do battle with the Raiders
in Canberra this weekend.

Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie
will name his side today for the Bledisloe Cup opener against
the All Blacks on Saturday night. He's set to name Brumbies rookie
Matt Toomua at fly half ahead of Quade Cooper but has rubbished
Robbie Deans' claims that Cooper is weak defensively. I don't worry about Quade's defence
at all. He's made some of the best hits
this year. Cooper will be named on the bench
for the ANZ Stadium clash.

is positively different to the big rental car companies. Go with the underdog and save. Now to the new twist
in the Essendon supplements saga. The Melbourne 'Age' claims some players were injected
with a mystery Mexican drug. The paper says no-one
is sure what the substance was. And that's left the players
and their families fearing for their health.

Seven AFL commentator Tim Watson
joins me now from Melbourne. Good morning.

Tim, as the dad of the captain,
you've told us before the families have been kept updated
by Essendon. Have you been told about
this mystery Mexican drug? No, it's news to me. What we've been told by the club
and the medical person that addressed the parents
on a night, of all the substances
they have been aware of, all those have been tested and have been cleared in terms of
the harmful effects on the players. I'm not exactly sure what this 'Age'
story is talking about. If there is a new drug
and a Mexican one, is it a concern? Of course. Anything that would be
of that nature in terms of a drug that nobody knows
about and nobody has tested would be of great concern. I mean, it poses all sorts
of questions. But look, I don't know exactly
what they're talking about so it's very difficult for me
to comment on something I'm not sure about. At this stage, there hasn't been
an update for the parents in more recent times. So we, as parents, are assuming that all those drugs that had been
part of this supplementation program had been tested in some way. So as I said before,
this is news to me. Do you think there should be
another update for parents, particularly with the new chairman
there? Well, I guess, the club
have been really good. They have been communicating
with the parents via e-mails and things like that when they believe there needs
to have been some formal update but at this stage, perhaps not. Now, no players have been charged
so far but are they concerned the ASADA
investigation is not yet over? Well, of course, it is always
a concern, you know, when it's an interim report
and it's not the full report and the players' understanding
of that. I guess, players are optimistic
at this stage, about the outcome of this as far
as they're concerned. But ASADA reserve the right,
at any stage, and this can go
on into the future too, should new information come forward. Because they hold information,
don't they? A bit like the Stuart O'Grady case, samples taken a decade ago are
retested with new technology, all that sort of stuff. Look, James Hird's legal team
wants the supplements case heard in public. Is that likely? And what do you think? Do you think
that would be a good thing? Well, there are so many things
about this, Kochie, that I'm just unsure about. This, you hear bits and pieces
throughout the course of the day, this has been going on
for a long, long time now.

Look, personally, I don't think
this will get heard publicly. I am not even sure that
it will end up in the courts. There is all that speculation
and Essendon going to court against the AFL. You only have to scroll back
in history to see there is all these threats
have taken place in the past and they have never
amounted to much and never gone to court and there has always been a
settlement before that and I'm expecting it
to be played out in that way and not in an open forum. OK, mate, thanks, good
to catch up. Thanks, Kochie.

And Mark Latham has weighed
into the row over Tony Abbott saying one of his
candidates has sex appeal. The former Labor leader reckons
Mr Abbott must have been drinking. He must've had the beer goggles on,
because she's not that good a sort and I'd rather have an aspirant
for the prime ministership who's a good judge when it comes
to checking out the good sorts, as many men do.

What!

What!? What the what? What!? What the what??

So, are Mark Latham's comments
worse than those of Tony Abbott?

Where do you start with that?In Australia, one man says she's a good sort so another man has to come out and go, "She's not a good sort."Is that how we role.Should never have gone there in the first place, any of you.Coming from the girls who have to wake no make-up.Don't you worry.We're wear the beer goggles.

Kevin Rudd's promise to end
negativity in politics in tatters. But first here's Nat
with the Seven News headlines. The Essendon drugs scandal
has taken another turn with new claims players were
injected with a mystery drug purchased in Mexico. Seven's AFL reporter Tom Browne
joins me now from Melbourne. Tom, what do we know
about these latest claims? #This is getting stranger by the day.Good morning, Nat, this highlights the exact problem, if you like with the Essendon supplements program. According to reports this morning, ASADA is concerned in its report that Essendon can't give ASADA and its players a guarantee about a mystery Mexican supplement. Apparently it was bought in Mexico by a muscular dystrophy man and a chiropractor has injected it into some Essendon players. It would be laughable if it wasn't true. The Essendon legend Tim Watson has spoken to Sunrise and has said the families haven't been briefed on this type of stuff. Let's listen to Tim

Anything that would be
of that nature in terms of a drug that nobody
knows about and nobody has tested would be of great concern. I mean, it poses
all sorts of questions.

Can In operation fight back, hurld hurld has written a scathing letter, through his lawyers, to ASADA. He is very critical of the interim report. He thinks it is a hand-fisted attempt to, " attempt to, "Stitch him up." I will have more on that at 7:00 but as you mentioned, this story just gets more bizarre by the day.Thank you for the update.

A state of emergency

crackdown on two protest camps in Cairo. Police stormed sit-ins held by supporters

have been reported to dead Among the dead -

for Sky News in London. The Labor Party
has gone on the attack, launching
a new television commercial targeting Liberal leader
Tony Abbott. Seven News political reporters
Patrick Condren is in Canberra. Patrick, this is unexpected
from Kevin Rudd.

Yes, good morning, Nat. Particularly when you talk about the fact that Kevin Rudd, at the beginning of this campaign, said he was going to be Mr Positive. So this is obviously a major strategy change from the Labor Party. Particularly coming so early in the campaign. I think we always expected both parties to go negative towards the back end of the campaign, but just in week two, I think is a bit of a surprise. Here is an kperp from the ad.

What are you hiding, Mr Abbott? I just feel like
you're hiding things, and I get the feeling that
if you win, we lose.

So what you going to cut? Schools the hospital is already stretched. What jobs are you going to cut?It is a pretty confronting ad, I suppose. It speaks directly to Mr Abbott and in terms of his secrecy around his plans. I think in terms of, from the Labor Party perspective, it is a little bit of a surprise that they've gone this early. I think it underlines the early. I think it underlines they are in a bit of strife. Maybe the polling in the Labor party shows they are not doing as well as they expected to do this early in the campaign so they brought out the attack ads a little early.Thank you, the stakes are high.

The Rabbitohs have moved
to dispelled any doubts over the fitness of Greg Inglis ahead of tomorrow night's NRL clash
against the Sea Eagles in Gosford. Souths coach Michael Maguire says his star fullback is fully recovered
from a knee injury, dismissing suggestions
he may be rushing back too soon. No, we've done a lot of testing and Greg's ticked off a lot of boxes
along the way. I thought he could have played
last week. Five-eighth John Sutton will have a fitness test
on his injured ankle today. Carlton star Chris Judd
hasn't given up hope of returning from a knee injury
before the end of the AFL season. The champion midfielder's knee
will be in a brace for the next two weeks. Meanwhile, sacked Brisbane coach
Michael Voss says

farewelling the Lions playing group was one of the hardest things
he's ever had to do in football. Jared Tallent has won
Australia's first medal of the World Athletics Championships
in Moscow. The 28-year-old claimed bronze
in the men's 50km walk behind Ireland's Robert Heffernan. I didn't feel good early on at all. The first 10km I thought
I'd probably not finish but then as the race went on
I felt better.

He is coached by his wife clar, where the power and the brains come from. What a partnership. Good morning, hello, croc.Yes, Beretts, we've left the tigers aside for now to have a look at what Australia Zoo is probably most famous for. This is K eglty, she is the curator here. This is Agro Junior, Agro being the giant croc that Steve Irwin did a lot of shows with?Yes, Agro is about 14 feet and agro by name and nature.This is Agro is two years old and can still do harm?I wouldn't do that.How many animals do you have here? It is huge?We have around 1200 individual animals so plenty to do and heaps to see. She is one of the original crew here, has been a volunteer since 1990. One of the nice things about the zoo, they have been able to carry through the business plan that Steve set up before he passed away back in 2006. It is an incredible place. I'll leave him with you as we look at the weather.

Early in the election campaign, Kevin Rudd pledged to end
wall-to-wall negativity in politics. But that hasn't stopped Labor
rolling out new election ads that attack Tony Abbott. What are you hiding, Mr Abbott? I remember when you were really
aggressive, negative, angry about everything. Now, you've just gone quiet. You talk about
all the money you want to save, so what are you going to cut?
Schools? The hospitals are already stretched?

What jobs are you going to cut? It's a hot topic this morning, so let's bring in Alan Jones
from 2GB and Greg Cary from 4BC in Brisbane. Alan, despite Mr Rudd's promise, did you really think we would
have a negativity-free campaign? There are three points I make - one is another broken promise, "There will be no negativity
under the party I lead." Kevin Rudd's promises only last
a couple of seconds at best. Secondly, it is a manifestation
of the fact they are desperate, they have no policies, what Kevin Rudd has got
is a ministry which is brand new in portfolios
just sworn-in and they can't be expected to get
on top of their ministries, the amount of money the ministry
might have or any policies they might have so they have got to lurch to this
whole negative approach. And the third thing, it is a bit rich for Kevin Rudd to
be lecturing Tony Abbott on sexism. Kevin Rudd was the man
who was forced to apologise to an female RAAF steward
for appalling behaviour and for almost three years, persistently white-anted the first
public female prime minister I think the public
are awake-up to this. This is a bloke who is going south,
going downhill quickly and he's got to lurch
into this kind of strategy, which the public, I'm certain,
won't wear. They are tired of it. Greg, a pretty aggressive ad
about being aggressive, isn't it? But in saying that, do you think
negative attack ads are just a part of political life? Well, they are. But I think it is increasingly, Sam, a part of the Australian
political life the Australian public
doesn't like. I agree with what Alan said. I think there is another angle too,
from a Queensland perspective, you think back
to the last Queensland election, Anna Bligh and her government
was always going to lose - it was time. and Campbell Newman was always
going to win but in the latter part of that
election the Labor Party let loose on of the most disgraceful
personal campaigns against Campbell Newman
and his family that I have ever seen in watching politics
for a long, long time. What was going to be a convincing
loss for the Labor Party became a massive landslide - you can count the Labor members now
on one hand. I recall the famous words
of Bob Hawke, never underestimate the common sense
of the Australian people. Labor will do so at their peril,
and with these ads, they are. I reckon that is a great quote. Away from the election this morning there are fresh concerns
about how much Aussies drink. A government survey reveals half the drinkers consume more
alcohol than their supposed to. Greg, that's despite warnings
on bottles and cans, taxes on alcopops,

campaigns warning about the links
between drinking and violence. Where we going wrong here? Yes, it is hard to know, I think drinking has just become
so pervasive, Kochie. It is linked to nearly
everything we do. It one of the great marketing
triumphs of our time. I think at the periphery, we've got to get a lot tougher
on alcohol related crime. We have got to be a lot tougher
on those who drink and drive, we have got to make the pain
of abusing alcohol a lot more in an obvious sense. We have got to look at the precincts where the hours are operating
way too late. We have to give the option
to our young people One of the rites of passage
seems to be now that you get drunk at this stage and get more drunk at that stage. It's a momentum
that's hard to turn off. We have got to readapt our approach
to drinking in general terms. If you don't drink in Australia
people think you're mad. in this country, isn't it? Is there anything that be done? Yes, Sam, I don't think
any of us are wowsers but at the same time, people don't bash up their wives because they've had
too many cigarettes or bash up people in George Street,
Sydney or Queen Street, Brisbane at 1:00 in the morning because
they had too many cigarettes. People don't kill people on the road because they've had
too may cigarettes. and yet every other day,
you'll find page after page advertising cheap grog. Obviously, the attraction of that
to young people is very significant. Something has got to be
seriously done about advertising. Like I said, we are not wowsers
but at the same time, the damage that alcohol
is doing in the community is very significant indeed
and shouldn't be ignored. It affects so many lives. Guys, thank you for that.
Catch you next week. Thanks, David.
Have a great day. From flying cars to teleportation,
even telephone boxes, there have been some pretty creative
solutions in science-fictions films for how we'll travel in the future. It's an invention called Hyperlop and it would have us zipping through
hollow tubes at the speed of sound. If it had come from anyone else, the
world would barely bat an eyelid but transporting passengers at
1,100km/h through hollow tubes - like in 'The Jetsons' comes from... Well.. 'Iron Man'! 42-year-old billionaire Elon Musk is the man
Hollywood based 'Iron Man' on. He helped create Paypal
then founded Tesla Motors which designed
the first battery-powered car. Followed by SpaceX -

the first commercial company
to dock with the Space Station. Now Hyperloop is his new baby. How would you like something
that can never crashed? It is immune to weather. Details of his plan include transporting travellers from LA
to San Francisco in just 30 minutes. The tubes would sit on pylons
and run alongside highways. They'd be a quiet ride
and unlike planes, no turbulence. On a bigger scale it could travel
the world in six hours. It's a cross between a Concorde,
a rail gun and an air hockey table. On paper it sounds crazy, but an idea like this
is already being worked on by a Colorado company except it's even faster,
at 6,000km/hour. New York to Beijing, China,
for instance, in about two hours. But while travel of this nature
is possible, how likely is it? If it costs billions of dollars
to build, how much are consumers going
to have to pay to ride this thing? Musk is adamant it'd be cheaper
than an airline ticket. He's proven his sceptics wrong
in the past - can the real Iron Man do it again?

Isn't it great?Yes, but I'd let a lot of people test it before I got on it, or in it.I think think of better uses of money, to you know, feed and water the world, before we did that.What? What if they had trains and had a red flag in front of it. You two are sounding like grannies.The idea is that way out that people think no, it could happen.I can remember when department stores did this. They would have all these tubes around the department store, put it in, up it goes. Can you really remember that?I was very young at the time.OK... And we're the grannies?Babes in the wood saids.Would you ride the hyper loop?

Before you get too excited, Elon Musk admits he doesn't have
time to build Hyperloop because of his other committments. He hopes somebody else can
take his idea and run with it. The Seven News headlines are next. Then, the big supermarkets,

tastes even better with pork mince. Get some pork on your fork.

Let's go to our showbiz editor
Nelson Aspen. Hi, Nelson.

You reported yesterday celebrity mums had testified
against the paparazzi in LA. Are they likely to have any success?

I think, let's hope so, they will. The time certainly seems right. What they're after is requiring the parents or guardian's permission before the paparazzi can start taking photographs of their children. Let's listen to Jennifer garner and Halle Berry.

I don't want a gang of shouting,
arguing, law-breaking photographers who camp out everywhere we are,
all day every day, to continue traumatising my kids. Thank you for the opportunity
to testify today, sorry. We aren't just whiney celebrities
that many times people think we are. We're mums here, who are just
trying to protect our children.

Jennifer garner especially seems so earnest. It earnest. It is hard not to want to pass it just for her alone. She is really something, isn't sheWe love Jennifer. She got three kids, very hands on, or we see pictures of her being hands on, which is probably the problem.Good on her. More on that in the next hour. These are the top stories.

Breaking overnight - new claims
the Bombers were injected with an unknown substance
from Mexico. This morning,
a club legend speaks out. Egyptian security forces here
are clearly using live ammunition, they are firing into
the side streets. Our report from the front line as more and more protesters die
in clashes with police. Plus, new this morning -
a proud dad. He's pretty loud and, of course,
extremely good looking. Prince William talks of
sleepless nights, a new job and a family visit to Australia. The new battle
for your grocery dollar.

Sam and Nat spend hours

But that's another story. We'll also have another $ We'll also have another $200,000 on the line but first, a the line but first, a Seven News update with Nat.

Essendon is facing fresh claims
this morning that players were injected with
a mystery drug purchased in Mexico. Seven's AFL reporter Tom Browne
is in Melbourne. Tom, what is the likely fallout
of this new twist?

Good morning, again. Well I think it has got big implications potentially for the officials charged, the club and the players. From the club's and officials, it highlights the lack of care. ASADA made it quite clear their investigation is in fact ongoing. There are initial reports the players have been cleared. They have for now but there is obviously the prospect of ASADA's investigation continuing. I confirmed it with WADA yesterday. In relation to these claims they are explosive. It is understood a muscular dystrophy patient sourced it over in Mexico. A chiropractor in south Melbourne, in fact South Yarra, injected it. Inunderstand a court injunction is possible over the next couple of days. Let's listen to what club legend Tim Watson had to say on that prospect.

I am not even sure that it will end
up in the courts. There is all that speculation and Essendon going to court
against the AFL. You only have to scroll back
in history to see there is all these threats
have taken place in the past and they have never amounted to much
and never gone to court

Just briefly, James Hird has stepped up his attack on ASADA. His lawyers have written a detailed letter claiming the ASADA report is nothing more than a hand-fisted attempt to stitch him up. They are raised legality points on ASADA. James Hird believes he has a strong legal position.Thank you very:

A month-long state of emergency
has been declared in Egypt after a security forces crackdown
on two protest camps in Cairo turned into a bloodbath. More than 200 people
are reported dead after police stormed sit-ins held by supporters
of ousted president Mohammed Morsi. Among the dead -
British cameraman Mick Deane who was covering the clashes
for Sky News in London. The situation has triggered
widespread condemnation around the world. Egypt's vice president
has since resigned.

Schapelle Corby's fight for freedom
may soon be coming to an end amid reports she could be granted
parole within days. Seven News reporter Grant Taylor
is on this story in Bali. Good morning, Grant. How likely is it that Schapelle
will be released by the weekend?

Well, good morning. I can it is fair to say it is a mathematical possibility but no-one here, including Schapelle pefs family are expecting to see her come walking out of the gates here at Kerobokan prison any time soon. It is independence day here on Saturday. A normal routine, the prisoners receive remission of the sentence. Schapelle is set to get another 6 months cut. She will now have served two-thirds of her maximum penalty, which means she automatically qualifies for parole. But the simple isn't that simple, with the process not being automatic. She will have to wait for Indonesian government approval and it could be anything from one to two months to six months or longer.Thank you very much for the update, live from Bali.

Former Labor leader Mark Latham
has weighed into the row over Tony Abbott saying one
of his candidates has sex appeal. Seven News political reporters
Patrick Condren is in Canberra with the details. Good morning, Patrick. Latham's comments are just as bad,
really, aren't they?

Absolutely made it worse. It wasn't clever, it wasn't funny. Mr Latham is very much a public figure. While he is very much a public figure. While he not be in politics anymore, Tony Abbott's sexism comment might have been an attempt to be a bit amusing, I think Mr Latham's is downright nasty. Here is a little of what he said.

For me, at least it showed
very bad judgment. It showed
that he's got low standards. I've had a good look at Fiona Scott
on page 8 of 'The Australian' today and I don't think
she's got sex appeal at all. She's a rather plain,
ordinary-looking woman.

There is absolutely, for my money, no reason to make those sorts of comments and drag that sort of candidate back into the limelight like this. Labor will be furious about that. In the last three days, Tony Abbott has given us suppositories, sexism and same-sex comments yesterday. Labor will be hoping Mark Latham zips his own lip. Yes, thank you.

A firefighter has been taken
to hospital after he fell through a roof while battling a large fire
at a Brisbane garden centre. Crews were called to the Rochedale
business in the city's south-east at 1:00 this morning. The nursery was badly damaged. The firefighter's injuries
aren't life-threatening. And Prince William has attended one
of his first official engagements since the birth of his son,
Prince George. He dropped in to the local show
in his hometown of Anglesey, in north Wales. Hundreds turned out in the rain
to greet him. William opened up
about dealing with dad duties. I have to say that I thought search-and-rescue
duties over Snowdonia were physically and mentally
demanding but looking after a 3-week-old baby
is right up there. William says
baby George is doing well. Coming up - the man who reckons
Tony Abbott was drinking when he called a female candidate
sexy. But first here's a man
rarely called sexy, Kochie.

Don't you feel like we need to get off this topic? Very quickly? Kochie? Wall Street well down overnight by 113 points Kochie? Wall Street well down
overnight by 113 points but good news in Europe after two years in economic recession, the eurozone has actually grown. The economy there in the second quarter. Up 0. the second quarter. Up 0.3% the second quarter. Up 0.3%. Now, led by rebounds in France and Germany, the big locomotive economic engines of Europe. So that's a step in the right direction. To our region yesterday, the record result from the Commonwealth Bank didn't ignite much interest in our market. The Commonwealth Bank is the 10th biggest bank in the world. At the moment. And our four banks are amongst the most expensive. To the commodities: rng commodities:

Australia is experiencing
its slowest wage growth in 13 years. Savanth Sebastian is at CommSec.
Morning. What's causing this?

This is a really good reflection of the weakness in the labe, market at the moment. Time to be nice to the boss?Yes, that's right, Kochie. It suggests that activity levels across the broader economy remain weak and businesses are finding conditions very tough. They are out there looking for avenues to cut costs and shifting to a much more flexible part-time work force, cutting hours and not looking at wage increases. So the slowest growth of wage increases since March 2000. Going back 13 years. That is the scenario to remain part of the landscape for the next 12 to 16 months, until the economy gathers momentum. Electricity, gas, water and mining, still seeing modest growth in wages. The other end of the scale with weakness, retail trade, accommodation and food services were areas where employers are seeing weaker growth in wages. Really it reflects the weakness in the economy. The Reserve Bank will probably look at this data and say inflation is not an issue. We can cut rates over the next few months if the economy doesn't pick up after the election.Thank you, time for sport with Beretts.Thank you.

Swans premiership coach Paul Roos has two clubs clamouring
for his services but still refuses to guarantee
a return to AFL coaching. Roos has been offered around
$1.5 million a season by the Demons and now the Brisbane Lions
have officially joined the race Look, at the moment I haven't got
my head around coaching at all. Before I consider either job,
that has to change. At Carlton Chris Judd
hasn't given up hopes of returning from a knee injury
this season. The Bulldogs are adamant a lengthy
injury toll will not stop them from contending
for the NRL premiership. Last year's beaten grand finalists
will be strengthened in the run in to the finals
by the return of several stars, headlined by reigning
Dally M Medallist Ben Barba. The Dogs do battle with the Raiders
in Canberra this weekend. Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie
will name his side today for the Bledisloe Cup opener against
the All Blacks on Saturday night. He's set to name Brumbies rookie
Matt Toomua at fly half ahead of Quade Cooper but has rubbished
Robbie Deans' claims I don't worry about Quade's defence
at all. He's made some of the best hits
this year. Cooper will be named on the bench
for the ANZ Stadium clash. David Warner admits he's still
struggling to come to grips with Australia's embarrassing fourth
innings capitulation in the fourth Ashes test in Durham. It was gutting, um... It took me probably half an hour
to get over my dismissal to...to then go in there
and have a shower, come out and we've lost
three quick wickets. It was...it was something that... I still can't believe
it happened so fast. The fifth and final test begins
at The Oval next week.

Overnight our women have drawn their test match with England. That is an ongoing series. Both sides get two points from that then they go into one days and Twenty20. Go, girls. And wheelchair rugby championships on at the moment too.Eddy is at Australia Zoo this morning.Yes, Sam, we are inside the tiger tent. When I say inside, I am outside and Gilles is inside, whom we met earlier. Introduce us to your friend?Zuma, a 9-year-old earlier. Introduce us to your
friend?Zuma, a 9-year-old Sumatran tiger, that coffee smell, that is what he is getting excited about.Do you get over the buzz of being that close to an animal like that.Never. There is never a day you come to work and you think it will be ordinary or can't drag yourself out of bed.Loving it!They are cute and amazing, it is fantastic.Obviously, meat eaters, what do they love about the coffee smell?I don't know, it is one of his favourites. We have tigers who don't like the smell at all but they get into to smells of essential oils and perfumes. They are like us with their own characters.The metrosexual tiger. We are here because Kailan, the female tiger will give birth in the next week or 10 days or so, to tiger cubs and not IVF? Au naturale? Kwrels a few candle lit dinners and they take over.

Now to the new twist
in the Essendon supplements saga. 'The Melbourne Age' claims
some players were injected with a mystery Mexican drug. The paper says no-one is sure
what the substance was. It says the players and their
families have been left fearing for their health. But that's all a surprise for the father of Bombers' skipper
Jobe Watson. No, it's news to me. What we've been told by the club
and the medical person that addressed the parents
on a night, I can't remember exactly
how long ago it was, of all the substances they have been
aware of, all those have been tested and have been cleared in terms of
the harmful effects on the players. I'm not exactly sure what this 'Age'
story is talking about. The club has also insisted this week the players were not
given anything harmful.

Former ASADA chairman Richard Ings
joins me now in Canberra. Good morning.

Richard, how likely is it players
were given a Mexican drug that no-one even knows
what it contains?

Well, Kochie, this is a very complicated matter that has been going on for several months. I think one of the cornerstones of it there were a range of substances given to players were perhaps adequate records weren't being kept. The story overnight is not a surprise. ASADA's investigation is still ongoing as we keep saying. So the players aren't out of the woods yet, are they? How long could the investigation take?Well, it is absolutely true that the players have not been cleared. ASADA hasn't completed its investigation or closed matters. This investigation could go on for many months. The investigate into Lance Armstrong took many years. Without the benefit of a positive test, there is no quick and easy conclusion.Also, they keep tests, don't they, could be for decades? The latest drugs issue involving cyclists, our own Stuart O'Grady was from samples done ten years ago?Yes, it is one of the best ways of actually fighting doping in sport. If someone is using a drug you cannot detect today, you simply keep the sample. You simply keep the sample. You freeze the sample for X number of years and retest it with advances in new technology later.You have criticised ASADA for their lack of communication, what should they have done differently?I don't want to get into specifics but as a federal government agency and the press conference in February, I think it is incumbent for ASADA to keep the public and media and fans updated as to the progress of the investigation. They have been more silent than they need to be.James Hird's legal team wants the hearings of the charges to be public. Do you think it is a reasonable request? Should it be done independently rather than within the AFL?Well, I can at the end of the day, the person who is subject to the accusation should have some say in exactly the transparency with which the tribunal is being held. So if James Hird has put out a call he would like to have more transparency in the hearing process then I think it is something the AFL will have to consider.OK. Richard, thank you for joining us for joining us for now. Appreciate it.A pleasure.

Australians are being advised
to re-consider travel to Egypt this morning. including the capital, Cairo. British news cameraman Mick Deane
was shot and killed while covering the deadly riots. Egypt's health ministry says almost
280 people have been killed

Correction: 235 people have been killed in a crack down on supporters of ousted President Mohamad Morsi.

NBC reporter, Richard Engel
ventured onto the streets for this dramatic report. Egyptian troops and police moved in to break up two protest camps
in Cairo by force - a final push to solidify
a military takeover six weeks ago that critics call a coup. The protesters, supporters
of the ousted Islamic president from the Muslim Brotherhood,
Mohammed Morsi, stood their ground even as tents burned and tear gas
filled the air. The protesters quickly regrouped
and charged at security forces backed by armoured vehicles.

Between the two sides, just the smallest of barricades
and barbed wire. Egyptian security forces here
are clearly using live ammunition. They are firing
into the side streets. There are front-line positions
between protesters, security forces all over Cairo and this one looks like
it is about to get very ugly. Volleys of automatic gunfire
crackled through the streets as more tear gas rained in. Protesters hid behind buildings and used buses and whatever else
they could for cover. The injured were carried away and urban battles in one
of the largest cities continued. The protesters say
this is a fight for democracy. The government says
it is putting down Islamists who may have won elections
but who govern badly and isolated the country.

Richard Engel putting his life
on the line there. A month-long state of emergency
has now been declared. The West will have to look
at how it deals with unrest in the biggest country
in the Arab world. Here's Kochie.

Forget petrol discounts - lower shelf prices
are now the new battleground in the supermarket wars. Woolworths has begun offering
short-term price cuts on a handful of items. Their best deal can save
shoppers up to 64%. Coles launched a similar campaign
two weeks ago. But what do shoppers think? Families could take advantage
of that... Yeah, it's pretty good. It's more convenience. I'd go to the one where I live near. Would you go out of the way
for a special? If they had specials, yes, I would. The competition watch dog
has warned the supermarket giants to focus less on discounting petrol
and more on groceries, or it will launch legal action.

Tom Godfrey from consumer group
Choice joins me. Is this a better deal for shoppers?

It is great discounts are coming on to groceries as opposed to petrol. Broadly, it is great. On theiment-loved items, I think the shoppers will bank the discounts. Are they genuine discounts or just part of the sales strategy of the supermarkets to entice us in that front door?Of course it is a sales strategy. Of course they make a great headline but it is on a limited number of projects, when you get in there, it will be interesting if you save on the whole shop we would love to see thel across the board because there are real cost of living pressurers and customers would welcome across the store.It is part of a smart strategy, how would you advise shoppers to work thisWrite a list. Really, we are not going to live on the bacon and Red Bull diet. They are discounting a few small products. Write a list, stick to it and stick to it and don't spend more than you need to. It would be great to hear from Sunrise viewers if they are saving on the weekly shop after these discounts take effect.Great thank you.

Prince William has left Kate
and baby George at home again. This time William attended
the Anglesey Show in North Wales where he tried out his Welsh
on the crowd. (SPEAKS WELSH)

(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)

William's deployment to Anglesey as an Air Force search and rescue
helicopter pilot will end next month. I have to say that I thought search-and-rescue
duties over Snowdonia were physically and mentally
demanding but looking after a 3-week-old baby
is right up there. William has hinted at a possible
family trip to Australia next year. Sunrise royal editor Rob Jobson
joins me now in London. Good morning. Rob, what did William get up
to at the show?

Well, it was an agriculture show in Anglesea where he has got his first son with Kate. He was with the cattle and the falconry but really he was the to make a big statement too, and that statement he is leaving Anglesea and leaving the job as an RAF search-and-rescue pilot as early as next months. There is speculation what he will do and whether he will quit the military full time. There is speculation of a ceremonial role leaving him to do more duties. He was at home there but missing Kate and baby George but he looks the country gent.He sure does. William and Kate are expected to move back to London when the deployment ends next deployment ends next mungts. Do you think it will be a ceremonial air force role after that from London? It is not clear but he doesn't want to give up full-time military duties. One day when he is king, he will be head of all the armed forces but it is the end as search and rescue pilot. He chose the Anglesea show because it was a chance to say thank you to friends and neighbours for the last few years. They have got a most beautiful cottage on the sea there and it has been an idyllic place for William and Kate, their first home together. But they are moving back to Kensington Palace. But as for Australia, I am fairly certain they will come to Australia April or May next year.Cool. Also another royal wedding would be could be on the way?There is a lot of speculation about Fergie and Andrew's daughter Beatrice, whether she will get married. This seems to come out every year in the summer. They have been dating for some time now. And the reality is though, there has been no announcement. There is a few leaks suggesting it might be the case but I don't know just yet. But all the big things are out the way, the royal wedding of William and Kate and the royal baby and she is free to do so.And Zara's baby could be on the way so Beatrice next? Poor Harry.It is the story of Patton Place.It is like 'Melrose Place'.

It's a special day here on
Sunrise, we're baring all in our last hour. Sam and Nat spent quite a bit

Australian travellers are being
warned to stay away from Egypt after a security forces crackdown
on two protest camps in Cairo turned into a bloodbath. Almost 300 people are reported dead,
including 43 police officers, after sit-ins held by supporters
of ousted president Mohammed Morsi were stormed by police. More than 1,000 people have
been injured. A month-long state of emergency
has been declared as riots spread across the country. The situation has triggered
widespread condemnation around the world.

Essendon has been hit with
fresh claims of substance abuse, two days after being charged
by the AFL. Fairfax reports players
were injected with a drug purchased in Mexico by a Melbourne man
suffering muscular dystrophy. This is a very complicated matter that's been going on
for several matters and I think one of the cornerstones
of it is that there were
a range of substances which were given to players where perhaps adequate records
weren't being kept. So the story overnight
is not a surprise. We, as parents,
are assuming that all those drugs that have been part
of the supplementation program had been tested in some way. The ASADA investigation
is still open, which means players
could still be charged.

The Federal Labor Party has launched
two new television commercials, attacking Tony Abbott. The ads, which began airing
last night, speculate the Coalition could make
cuts to schools and hospitals. I just feel like
you're hiding things, and I get the feeling that
if you win, we lose. Meanwhile, a nurses' union
commercial that claims the Coalition
will privatise hospitals has been labelled a blatant lie by
fact-checking service PolitiFact. Police are investigating
an overnight shooting in Sydney's south-west. Several shots were fired
in Heckenberg at around 9:30. A man found at the scene
had been shot in the finger and was taken to hospital. A crime scene has been set up and police are asking
for witnesses to come forward. A short time later, two cars
were torched outside a house in the neighbouring suburb of Busby. Both cars were destroyed but firefighters managed
to stop the blaze spreading to a nearby home.

Two people have been killed
in a cargo plane crash in the US. The Airbus A300 cargo plane
crashed into a field as it was coming in to land
at Birmingham Airport in Alabama. Witnesses say
they heard a loud explosion before the plane hit the ground. Flames from the burning wreckage
lit up the sky. Officials say the pilot
and co-pilot were killed. No-one on the ground was injured. The Rabbitohs have moved
to dispelled any doubts over the fitness of Greg Inglis ahead of tomorrow night's NRL clash
against the Sea Eagles in Gosford. Souths coach Michael Maguire says
his star fullback is fully recovered from a knee injury, dismissing suggestions
he may be rushing back too soon. No, we've done a lot of testing and Greg's ticked off a lot of boxes
along the way. I thought he could have played
last week. Five-eighth John Sutton will have a fitness test
on his injured ankle today. Carlton star Chris Judd
hasn't given up hope of returning from a knee injury
before the end of the AFL season. The champion midfielder's knee
will be in a brace for the next two weeks. Meanwhile, sacked Brisbane coach
Michael Voss says farewelling the Lions playing group was one of the hardest things
he's ever had to do in football. Jared Tallent has won Australia's
first medal of the World Athletics Championships
in Moscow. The 28-year-old claimed bronze
in the men's 50km walk behind Ireland's Robert Heffernan. I didn't feel good early on at all. The first 15km I thought
I'd probably not finish but then as the race went on
I felt better. It was just a very tough day.

Beautifully coached by his wife Claire too, love that story. I put my hand up and say I love Australia Zoo and when you are there, the animals are out and about and walking round. Beautiful.They are and slightly more cuddly than a Sumatran tiger is a baby dingo. How old are they?They are 10 weeks old. I guess there is a misconception they are quite fierce but they are shy, they look to move away from people, not towards them. Absolutely. They are timid but live in a pack and hunt by themselves in. In the wild you won't see them.A lot of them are cross bred with dogs?Unfortunately, there aren't many left on mainland Australia. Fraser Island, we have got Fraser Island, we have got one of the last pure bred populations in aero.Welcome to the zoo girls, welcome to Sunrise. Let's look at the weather.
