The incoming PM set to bunk at an AFP training college while the Lodge is renovated. The Knights through to the NRL semifinals after a commanding victory over the Bulldogs. Hello, you're watching ABC News 24. I'm Kathryn Stolarchuk. A quick look at tomorrow's weather first.

Police have smashed what they say is the biggest case of match fixing in Australian sports history. Nine players and a coach have been arrested. It's alleged the 10 from a Victorian Premier league soccer club were paid to fix matches earning $2 million for an international betting syndicate. Dan Conifer reports.This is one of many goals the Southern Stars conceded this season. Here's their coach explaining another loss for the very unlucky. loss for the team. We were very unlucky. We very unlucky. We should about put three a away in the first-half. put three been the story of our season.Victoria Police put many of their results down to match fixing.We've certainly got evidence in excess of $2 the
million Australian in terms of the winnings.Police a arrested the coach and nine places over their alleged involvement with a international match fixing syndicate and spent the day interviewing them.At this stage, it seems from the Victorian investigation we restricted
conducted seems to be restricted to this one club in the Victorian league.The 10 men targeted the Southern Stars club and worked with a European sent indicate who placed bets on the second-tier competition Football
with Asia annual bookmakers. A Football Federation tip-off last month. It is clearly distressing for everyone in Australian sport. We know this threat exists.Members of the club committee refused to be interviewed but said they're shocked by the news. The Football Federation is set to act immediately.We will throw the book at these perpetrators. That means life bans on a worldwide basis.We've been already commencing those and conducting inquiries offshore, but we'll be continuing to extend those.As police hunt the syndicate in other
countries, there's one more game left in the Southern Stars's seen. game left in Stars's seen. We're sitting
on the bottom of the ladder, but the luck has got to change sooner or later.Police are set to speak with more players and officials and haven't ruled out further arrests.PN X have arrested four men in connection with last week's vicious attack on a group of Australian tourist and their of the
porters.It comes as the leader of the trek broke her silence to speak exclusively to the ABC today describing the attack as a frenzied bloody massacre which made no sense. PNG correspondent Liam Fox reports from Wau.Christy King says she's no hero. After the attack on the Black Cat Track, Ms King provided first aid to the badly injured porters. She then led the Australian trkers on a five darkness back to the town of Wau to raise the alarm. The trekkers have praised her bravery but she says she was just doing her job. Everyone on that hill, the orrers, the trekkers, the rescue team are all the heroes in this, seven others were left seriously injured.The attack was a frenzied bloody massacre which made no sense.I'm so sorry these men have had to receive such terrible injuries. I would like to thank them for the wonderful job on the track.She praised locals like Daniel Hargreaves who led the rescue party that reached the injured porters then cleared a helipad so they could be choppered out. Meanwhile, relatives of one of the dead porters, Matthew Gibob, have killed a man they believed had harboured the criminals after the attack.

Locals believe villagers from Bitoi, an alternate but largely unused start to the Black Cat Track, are responsible for the attack.

Many people here are outraged by the attack and say that if they get their hands on those responsible, they'll also end up here at the local morgue. Liam Fox, ABC News, Wau.World leaders have welcomed a deal between the US and Russia to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons by the middle of next year. So far there's been no response from Damascus. Under the agreement, Syria has to provide a list of all its chemical stockpiles within a week to avoid military strikes. ABC correspondent Philip Williams reports.After days of gruelling negotiations, finally a plan both the Russians and the Americans can agree on. There can be no games, no room for avoidance, or anything less than full compliance by the Assad regime.TRANSLATION: We understand that the agreement reached today is only the beginning of the road to control and eliminate the chemical weapons in Syria.The Syrian Government must hand over a full inventory of all its chemical weapons and precursor material within a week. Then international inspectors will start the massive task of securing and finally destroying the stockpiles. The whole process should be over by mid 2014 all goes to plan. (Gunfire). midst of an unpredictable civil war. And Syria will have to comply or war. And comply or the threat of military action this time through the UN remains a possibility. The rebel Syrian supreme military council has rejected the deal saying the Assad regime is already shifting its stockpiles into neighbouring countries.Be careful. The regime really began to move chemical weapons and materials to Lebanon and to Iraq.The whole arrangement depends on the Russians effectively directing the Syrian Government what to do.If this ambitious agreement holds, then one terror may be eliminated from this battlefield, but the much bigger task remains, somehow negotiating an end to a war that's already ripped this country's part. Philip Williams, ABC News.

Tony Abbott's period as PM in waiting is almost over. He's expected to name his front bench tomorrow and be sworn in within days. But Mr Abbott will go without one of the trappings of office by choosing to bunk down at a Police Academy when he stays in Canberra. Political correspondent Greg Jennett reports.He's evicted a tenant and had a property inspect. I've never really explored it.But an overdue year-long renovation means the Lodge isn't a residence fit for the 28th PM. At almost $4,000 a week, this five bedroom mansion wouldn't do either. So Tony Abbott settling for The Block. The sleeping quarters are standard and include a king single bed and a bathroom with shower and toilet. The Federal Police College is just down the road from Parliament House, has all mod cons. One of the college it's real features is the dining room which searches all dietary needs.And costs a pittance to taxpayers.I think it is a good thing to save Australian taxpayers's having Tony staying where his
security having Tony security detail stays.Julia Gillard did there's a precedent there. I Gillard did the same thing there's a precedent there. think it is really a Mr
think it is really a matter for Mr Abbott.He's got the living rooms and soon the Cabinet. Signs are emerging that Julie Bishop will be the only woman in the inner ministry after Sophie Mirabella's departure.In time, I expect to see many more women promoted but at this time Tony's indicated that he wants to maintain the stability of the team they took to the election.The first Abbott tomorrow
ministry is due to be named tomorrow and sworn in by mid-week. Stability is being preserved at its core but in the outer ministry and in the ranks of its parliamentary secretaries, there will be some signs of renewal. It is true that I'm still the Deputy Prime Minister.He's also an aspiring Opposition leader. Anthony Albanese started the first of many Labor membership meet and greets. He and his opponent are selling dual visions of hope and opportunity. If we win the same number of seats that Kim Beazley won in 1998 or that Kevin Rudd in 2007, we will be back in into government in one term. (APPLAUSE).It is the party, it's the policies and the people. That's how we can win the next election. And by learning the lessons of the last.There were shop policies on the run, there was no doubt about that. Kevin was playing catch up football I'd expect that.He nominates the Northern Territory tax haven one Hail Mary play that didn't pay off.Police in NSW are being given new search powers as part of a crackdown on gun crime.Under the changes, police will no longer need a warrant to search people who have already banned from carrying weapons.The Premier has delivered police another weapon to tackle gun crime. We can't continue weapon to tackle We can't continue to allow We targeted gun crime to occur Kerr because each time there's of
a targeted shooting the stance of a innocent bystander being hurt increasesAt the moment police can't detain anyone unless they have reasonable suspicion to do so and a warrant. Under the changes they'll need a firearms ban.These criminals who use guns on our street have no respect, no respect, for the rights of the community. Therefore, these criminals should not complain when they're about to lose some of their rights.This is a shocking new proposal and one that reduces accountability over police to zero.Currently only 60 people are subject to firearms pro Bishops orders. The Premier wants to see more handed out and is given all senior police, not just the Commissioner, the power to issue them.Powers in the hand of one police officer is not going to tackle gun crime in Sydney.The Premier plans to introduce the laws into Parliament this week. The Opposition says it put forward similar legislation two weeks ago. Barry O'Farrell is just not serious about dealing with gun crime and he has had to be shamed into this announcement by the Labor opposition.But Labor's still plans to support it.Under the new laws subject to a firearms ban will face longer jail time from ten to 14 years for carrying or supplying a weapon and have limited court appeals against their prohibition order.Outlaw motor sigh collision are the target of this legislation. That's assuming that they're the ones who are responsible for a whole range of crimes. But they're simply not. Smot cyclist.The government says the community expects people who use illegal guns to face the full weight of the law.A man has died of a suspected drug overdose at a dance festival in Sydney's west. The 23-year-old had travelled from Victoria with friends to attend the Defqon.1 Festival in having seizures about midday. He was taken to Nepean Hospital where he was resuscitated after several heart attacks but later died. At the moment, police are waiting for the results of the postmortem and toxicology before we stay too much more about it.Do you suspect it is a drug overdose? Indications that that's the way we are heading.Another 14 people were taken to hospital after apparent drug overdoses. Police made more than arrests for drug offences. The arrests for drug annual event attracted a crowd of 18,000 people.

Friday afternoon and after locating that on a property South of Brisbane, they've revved three men. They've charged 24-year-old man Luke Carlton with murder and with interfering with a corpse. They've also charged 36-year-old Sherwood man David Darlington with interfere regular a cops and also being an accessory, and they've charged 28-year-old North Ipswich man Matthew John Kirk with the same charges, being an accessory and interfering with request with a corpse. All three men appeared in court yesterday. Carlton who faces the most serious charges, of murder, has been remand ed in custody to a further court appearance via videolink in prison in October and the other two men are due to face court again next week. Neither man applied for bail yesterday. They're in custody also. During yesterday's court appearance, the court has closed but a couple of the deadman's friends showed up to court for the appearances of these three men. They were European leaders they weren't allude in but spoke to media outside afterwards. They described Michael Peter Klaassen a fellow who lived a transient live tile moving from house to house, but described him as a likable fellow, the life of the party and said a lot of friends will sorely miss him. Police originally declared two crime scenes one at Burbank and one at Logan Reserve where his body was exhumed on Friday from Reserve where his body exhumed on Friday from a
shallow shallow grave. They've since declared that their investigation or their examination of those two crime scenes is complete but they're still undergoing forensic testing of evidence and the formal identification process of Michael Peter Klaassen's body is under wayIt is a multi-billion-dollar industry that employs thousands of people but thoroughbred horse studs in the Hunter Valley claim their livelihoods are under threat. They're worried how their animals are affected if proposed open-cut mines on their land will are given the go-ahead.It is foaling time in the Hunter Valley but this new arrival is coachment of mining would be the greatest threat to thoroughbred breeding in the hunt very tally.The Darley stud is surrounded by proposed mining sites. They're so concerned, they're considering leaving the property.It would be a drastic option, but of course it's an option.The Government's commitment prior to the election was to give an indication of where mining can and can't occur. To date, we haven't been afforded that.Mr Wiles says instead there is less certainty due to a Government review of the planning system. It is proposing to give greater consideration to the economic value of a mining application in the assessment. The mining industry is confident the two can coexist. We can certainly understand they have concerns about projects in the problem minimum proximity of their operations. They say the planning review is long overdue. The uncertainty has prompted the largest equine hospital in the southern hemisphere to shelve a $10 million upgrade. If the Thursday thoroughbred industry isn't available to support that new business, there's no way we could go into an investment like that.The planning department says when the new guidelines are in place, horse studs will remain a key consideration when assessing mining proposals.Jackson Vernon, ABC News, Hunter Valley.North Queensland players and fans are demanding referees be held accountable for the error that helped end the Cowboys' season. Embarrassed league bosses have promised to went wrong. Brad Ryan promised to investigate what went wrong. reports.An went wrong. Brad reports.An unhappy homecoming
for the North Queensland Cowboys. League Cowboys. League fans are fuming after another final was marred by a game changing error. A 7th tackle try in a match that was decided by just two points, it's led to suspicions and accusations. Two years in a row, you definitely think something's going on behind closed doors.If you're playing from a team outside of Sydney, you're fighting up against it. No doubt about it.It is a cruel reminder of what became known as the hand of God blunder last year. A knock on try that helped Manly end the Cowboys' 2012 season.While Queensland dominate the State of Origin level, NSW is crying out for something and they seem to be getting it.He could be right. I think he's well entitled to think like that given a row.
happened to us for two years in a row. Why wouldn't you? At least one agency is refunding bets on a Cowboys premiership and this online petition has collected more than 12,000 names. They got to fix it. Surely it can't happen. It is their livelihoods as well.Sack them.One North Queensland leader wants legal action. For the NRL to allow a result which they know is the wrong result, absolutely, provably, unassailably, if they were to let that go forward it makes unassailably, if they were let that go forward it mockery of the game.NRL head of football Todd Greenberg says he can't defend the of football he can't defend the decision.
It is obviously been a terrible result. It terrible result. I'm embarrassed for the game.The league is promising an inquiry into the mistake but says it can't do anything about the result. The Newcastle Knights will meet the Storm in Melbourne next Saturday night in the second week of the NRL finals.Overnight the Roosters moved a step closer to the grand final beating the Sea Eagles in the lowest scoring final for two decades. Today's match ended the Bulldogs' season.The six placed Bulldogs had lost twice to Newcastle this season. Ben returned to the starting side
in the unfamiliar number 23. James McManus
The Knights were under siege. James McManus out help by Sam Perrett. But Darius Boyd knows how to find the line. And when Akuila Uate chimed in, the Knights hit the front.He scores a mag any of nth try.Barba went off with a ankle injury and penalty this is one given away by the skipper pushed Newcastle to a 10 point lead.Jeremy Smith's try ensured the dogs would remain in the outhouse. Wayne Bennett's men march on. A fortnight's break awaited the winner between Manly the at Roosters. Feathers flew from the outset. But few would have imagined the points on the end of an accurate James Maloney grubber kick would turnout to be the only score of the match.A little challenge. Oh.The 70 absorb being point minuting both sides probed. In the main, the defence line's dominated. The last score as low in a final was in 1992 when St George beat its future joint-venture partner the Illawarra Steelers four-nil. Manly faces Cronulla next week and the Roosters can rest up for either the Storm or the Knights in a grand final qualifier.A number of Sydney Swans players are facing a race against the clock to be fit for Saturday night's preliminary final against Fremantle after a bruising 24 point win over Carlton last night.Nick Bailey reports.Batter Zed, bruised but sill battling on. The Swans wants premiership defence has reached the penultimate week of the season. I think Reading in a prelim final it is a mazing what that can do for your energy and the feeling over there. It does wonders for the enthusiasm and energy among the group.Just who will be fit to line-up against Fremantle next week is anyone's guess. Already taking a guess. Already lengthy injury list into September, the Swans lost star lengthy injury list into forward Kurt Tippett just minutes into last night's game. Moments later Tom Mitchell joined him on the bench. It was sensational really. To lose two players in the first-half of the first quarter and be two down for the rest of the game and for the player keep running and doing what they did was fantastic. The leaders in particular were outstanding.Sydney found enough to prevail by 24 points. Luke Parker stepped up in the absence of Kurt Tippett to kick three goals. Swans' co-captain Jarrad McVeigh made a staggering 42 disposal.Parker myself I wanted to step up as well. It was a really good team performance. We needed to hit back hard.Unlikely to win any plaudit was the playing surface at the Olympic Stadium which saw players regularly lose their footing.It was all right.Carlton arrived back in Melbourne satisfied to have made a tilt at finding and determined to build next year.Last night's game was disappointing. We can take out fairly good positive stuff over at the last month. The Swans will need to dig deeper with the preliminary final against Fremantle six days a away.Ewen McKenzie has earned his first win as coach of the Wallabies with a narrow one point victory over Argentina in Perth last night.Israel Folau scored Australia's only try as the home side was forced to fend off a late challenge from the Pumas. Ben Lisson reports.After three straight losses, the Wallabies knew they'd need to dig deep against an improving Argentinian squad. Ben Mowen led Australia out for the first time as captain, while Nic White took his place as starting scrum half. He immediately showed why he'd been given the job. Gets the result he was after as well.In wet result he wet and windy conditions, collisions

With good field position Israel Folau demonstrated his strength close to the line to put the Wallabies up by 11 at the break.
