from here after two days of level pegging it is australia have the upper hand. good evening, thanks forjoining us, lots to get through today on this chilly november evening — all the day's football, the latest from the rugby league world cup — and, fittingly, some winter sports for you too. but we're going to start with rugby union's final round of autumn internationals. and scotland finished their series on a high, with a record thumping of australia. 53—24 it finished, with the wallabies down to m men. james burford was watching. despite losing their star man stuart hall to injury there was the feeling that this could be a special day and so it started, murrayfield is not particularly used to seeing this kind of football. byron mcguigan bore down on goal.
can he win the race? and mcguigan scorers for scotland! the visitors responded, two tries in scotland and on the back foot. then a red card for australia and a serious chance for the hosts and one that sean maitland grabbed with both hands, being chased by forwards, a race he was never going to lose. so the floodgates opened, jinks appeared in aussie armour and the scottish chain was stronger than ever. try after trying a state hired and weakening australian defence, the murrayfield crowd roaring ever louder. eight tries scored in a record win over australia in scottish rugby is in a good place. an amazing result to think we scored some many points against the number of the team in the world and obviously have to take into account the red card, they were playing well at the beginning of the game and came back well in the second half but i felt we need to —— i felt he kept that made set of wanting
to play and work hard and got rewards. wales were hoping for a first win over new zealand for 64 years, they fought hard before the all blacks pulled away as the final whistle blew close. 18-33 the blew close. 18—33 the final score, wheels‘s wait for windows on. at the principality stadium it was hoped against history, welsh belief is always strong but the memories of beating new zealand are flickering and fading. that was back in 1953, a different ground again. the all blacks are the ultimate modern rugby challenge, strength and speed, a cocktail of the bombastic and the gymnastic. just watch this flexible finish. new zealand were not allowed that far up the field again for more than 20 minutes but once again david turned with the points. 12—6. so cruel for wales but they challenged
the frustration, there was the angle and the try. back in 53 wales had been three down at the break, now the only one point behind but the men in black or iverson, scoring even when you think you're safe. new zealand scored again, the gap grew to 15 points. hopeless? not here. the kiwi captain was sent to the bin and hopes were still alive. even a man down with less than ten minutes left, the all blacks went hunting. this is why they are the best in the world and why wales must keep waiting. for england, its three wins out of three now — they beat samoa 48—14 at twickenham. the samoans have lost every game this autumn but england only pulled away in the second half, elliott daly impressed coach eddiejones with two tries. a last—minute score made it a record victory against samoa, henry slade set up semesa rokodoguni for this, england's seventh try. although afterwards captain dylan hartley said he was happier
with the score than the performance. meanwhile ireland beat argentina. david stockdale was named man of the match. the final score was 28—19. time to catch up on a busy day of football. it ended to one goal apiece in the late kick—off as chelsea came from one goal down to ta ke chelsea came from one goal down to take a point against liverpool at anfield in the race for the top four. drew savage reports. after midweek trips to spain and azerbaijan, back in the bright lights of liverpool. the hosts less happy with their european adventure than chelsea. 0ne happy with their european adventure than chelsea. one player came closest to scoring in the second half, danny drinkwater in his first league start for chelsea. at the
other end, the hammered salon was keen to show chelsea what they were missing. he has been a big hit at anfield. and this is why. not even the lethal robbie fowler made such a high—scoring start in his liverpool career, 15 goals in 20 games. but the reds, there go slipped in seville and one of their subs —— and a chelsea sub chipped in. whether by grey kelly misplaced cross, his partner did not mind. with the aerial route to goal as a last resort, sala and the touted a final word but that belonged to the keeper. 1.8 is not used to either manager, “— keeper. 1.8 is not used to either manager, —— whether one point is of any use to either manager remains to be seen. surprise result that wembley, fresh from topping their champions league regard death in midweek, spurs had
to come from one goal down to one against west brom. soloman rondon produced a shock on four minutes, after dele alli gave the ball away and some awful defending led to the opener. caretaker manager gary megson and his team managed to keep spurs at bay until harry kane equalised at close range deep into the second half. despite having more than 75 per cent possession, mauricio pochettino‘s men simply couldn't find the winner. i was disappointed because the effort was massive and we conceded a goal so early in the game. they have the belief and played the person is difficult for us to find the space. we moved the ball so slowly. in the last 15 minutes of the first half i think we increased our level, and in the second half we were much better. we created chances to score. having
that so long it was disappointing the manner of the goal that we conceded, however we are playing against, a side the good as spurs are on against, a side the good as spurs are on another site, we should be blocking the cross and 0k they have had a lot of possession. they have not had what i would call absolutely clear—cut chances, but from the point of view i thought we defended well but on that occasion we did not. crystal palace picked up another vital three points in their fight against relegation, as they beat stoke 2—1 after some late drama at selhurst park. mamadou sakho bagged the winner in the 92nd minute, just moments after yohan cabaye‘s shot had hit the post. it means palace are now unbeaten in four games. roy hodgson‘s men are still bottom of the premier league, but just three points from safety. we have played better we think on a couple of games we got draws and we're just hoping that one day something like this would happen, we would not hit the high spots as as oui’ game is concerned, but we get a bit of good fortune when we needed it and that is what we got there. the great thing is our fans
are so with they cheer us on. they do stay to the end, unlike a lot of clubs fans. maybe that is one of the things that will help us as we go forward trying to climb out of the hole that we have dug for ourselves. for games unbeaten for palestine for losses in a row for newcastle as they succumbed to a 3—0 hammering from watford. it is the first time the visitors managed back—to—back wins this season. today the goals came from will hughes and andre gray in either half, with an own goal from d'andre yedlin just after the restart. watford remain 8th in the table, just three points off 4th placed spurs. we started losing the focus and concentration and making more mistakes, so i was really disappointed because this is the premier league. if you make mistakes you play —— you pay for that. congratulations to the fans of newcastle, fantastic. they always support their very good.
it is a good example for everyone. i think we deserved the three points. let's look at the results in full, manchester united battle the 1—0 win but only thanks a huge deflection as josie moreno's men move within five of leaders city. swansea just missed out on taking the points managing a goalless trial told to bournemouth. and looking at the table, united remain manchester city's nearest rivals in the race of the top four gets tighter, liverpool and watford in the miguel burnley and arsenal battle it out tomorrow. and it is
just a tight at the other end, palace remain rooted to the bottom despite their win today, west brom stay one point out of the bottom three and everton are two points out of safety. there were just two games in the scottish premiership today. hibernian missed the chance to go second in the table after drawing one all at hamilton academical. hearts have now gone 5 games without a win after they played out a goal—less draw with ross county. in the championship, leeds beat yorkshire rivals barnsley two—nil to move up to 8th in the table. first—half goals from samuel saiz and ezgjan alioski helped leeds to a comfortable victory. for barnsley, that's now two successive home defeats. elsewhere in the championship aston villa beat ipswich 2 nil, chris coleman got his first win as manager of sunderland — they beat burton two nil and move off the bottom of the table — it's their first win since mid august.
fulham beat millwall one nil. bristol city came from 2 nil down to win 3—2 at hull city. there were also convincing wins for derby and wolves. that is a round—up of the football now. still to come: lewis hamilton is world champion, but he was pipped to pole position by his team for the season—ending abu dhabi grand prix. lewis hamilton says he is still determined to finish a season on a high. and there's gold for scotland's women at the european curling championships, but could the men follow suit? it's been over two decades since england appeared in a rugby league world cup final — but after a nerve shredding showdown with tonga, wayne bennett's side will now face australia in next saturday's showpiece. and what a semi—final it was in auckland — asjoe lynskey reports. for england, some wins are worth waiting for. after three straight defeats in world cup semifinals, victory finally came,
but with a scare. to get to brisbane, england had to cross the red sea. in auckland they were staring down at tonga's town. this stadium can hold a quarter of the nation, but england found an early break. wing play in this sport is about timing and jermaine mcgillivray is rarely late. by half—time they had it under control. the team looked safe and sound and john bateman‘s third score looked to have sealed it. england's try. it's looking as if it will be england in the semifinal. but the drama was just beginning. tonga's fans sing hymns from the stands and now the team had found something almighty. the chorus inspired them to three tries in the last seven minutes and in the final seconds,
they were on charge for the line. fifita has lost it! he has lost it and england have won it! tonga may never get so close to the top of world sport, but in the end england's cruise control became survival instinct. tonga trauma overcome, it is australia next for the title. it was an extraordinary match and afterwards our rugby league correspondent dave woods was pitchside to look back on the action. we had just witnessed an incredible occasion, england through to the world cup final but only by the skin of their teeth. and what an atmosphere we have witnessed here in auckland today. brian noble the former great britain coach and justin morgan who work for the kiwis, just in, first of all, you live in this city, have you ever see anything quite like this? never seen
anything quite like this? never seen anything like this, you have to remember we are in new zealand and this is a tonga versus england game so this is a tonga versus england game so it is phenomenal the way that they really let this world cup alight, the way they have supported not only here in auckland but their games and hamilton as well. england are through, 20—18, what a finish. how did england hang on? unbelievable, it went to the warning signs were there. the kiwis were 16-18 to signs were there. the kiwis were 16—18 to up and be emotional wave came from this crowd and all of a sudden there were two more in the whole joint was bouncing and it was just euphoria that took them down. the drama the death when he dropped the ball to win the game, what a seven minutes. but let's not take away from england and how well they played. i was going to say, england face australia next week. they were
excellent, a little lapse in concentration but i think they will go in very confident next week. they defended their line, they need to improve some areas like their kicking game and at times i thought there were some unforced errors in there were some unforced errors in the first half, but i think they will give the kangaroos a good game next weekend. in international rugby league at the lisbon about the big three, tonga are in that group now, they are one of the big four. definitely, they are the story of the world cup in many respects. a lot of the players that play for new zealand went to the tongan team in a defection and played well. right through the tournament. could have won today. it is for nations. you can take away from the fact that fiji played really well in the treatment as well so a lot of headaches and head scratching to go on for people who play international
by on for people who play international rugby league. it has been one of the most emotional noisy and incredible days of rugby league we have ever seen, and a game to match that, england seem comfortable winning it and tonga produced that fightback, but the bottom line is england are in the final next week against australia in brisbane. sounds good! england's women playing the third and final test of their autumn series against canada. they lead the series 2 nil, having beaten the canadians convincingly last weekend and again on tuesday night — and it looks like they're going to pull of a whitewash — leading tonight 31—7 with tries for england so farfrom marlie packer, abigail dow and jess breach. —— the match finished 69—19. bass beat harlequins 38—14 to get the bonus point, and was won at leicester tigers for the first time
in 112 years, 31—27. sale sharks versus northampton is the late kick—off, it is 18—15 the final score there. england have a slim lead after day three of the opening ashes test in brisbane, but it was australia who really turned up the heat. after a century from captain steve smith, his bowlers took two quick wickets in the final hour on day 3. it was a day that began promisingly for england with three early wickets, then the tables turned fact the brilliant innings for australia's captain steve smith and then a torrid final session for england's batsmen. two late wickets for australia. the first two days were level pegging, it is now australia who have the upper hand. after a balance the start to the ashes, was this the day the pendulum
finally swung? briefly and tantalisingly it edged towards england, shaun marsh won a cluster of early wickets and when stuart broad brilliantly removed mitchell sta rc broad brilliantly removed mitchell starc the first innings lead was on their sites. they could not shift is truly a's rock, steve smith with not just the same today but a batting masterclass. that is what it means to rescue your team. with partners running out he guided a failure into the leeds and whether innings finally ended in failure were 26 ahead. smith was 141 not out, cheered that the rafters. now for england's openers to steady the ship first up or not. they took for alastair cook and stark reeled in him. that did not get any better in a torrid final session, 70—2 as is gillian‘s paceman piled on the pressure. joe root was thankfully unhurt, and cullen to the close but england are up against that.
it was such a final dramatic session, a torrid one. the paceman was steaming in, the crowd were getting on their back, good old —fashioned ashes cricket. mark stallman and joe root clung on until the close and stuart broad believes that could prove very significant. crucial. you cancel easily lose four or five wickets and that is the test match gone. for someone wickets and that is the test match gone. for someone who has bowled in those periods there is just wonderful times the bowl, yourfresh and have had 125 overs, you can charge in and you can't really lose anything in our sole i think obviously a bit disappointed to lose two wickets but as i say it could have been a lot worse. early on there was no doubting the start of there was no doubting the start of the show, a brilliant innings from the show, a brilliant innings from the australian captain steve smith, 141 not out, practised really into the lead and afterwards he admitted
it was one of his very best innings. it will be up there, definitely. obviously with the team and a bit of trouble at 4—70, i had to try and that some time and dictate and it was nice to put on a few partnerships with sean and patti cummins at the back end there. i thought he played particularly well. just have to find really hard and gets too difficult periods and keep batting. there were some reasonably defensive field sets, and it was just about getting off stride and waiting for the balls in my area and being really disciplined and i thought i did that really well. australia will certainly feel they have the edge now, going in today for. if they can get early wickets tomorrow morning especially that of england's captain joe root they will feel they have an excellent chance of winning this first test. and you can follow what promises to be a really tense,
and crucial day on test match special tonight 11.30, play resumes at two minutes to midnight and you can follow all the action on bbc radio 5 live sports extra, the bbc sport website and the bbc sport app. lewis hamilton is world champion, but he was pipped to pole position for the season—ending abu dhabi grand prix. his team—mate valterri bottas was just over a seventeenth of a second quicker — but hamilton says he still wants to finish his season on a high. tom clarkson is in abu dhabi for us. with both world championships already decided, this final race of the year in abu dhabi is all about bragging rights, the drivers all watched to win it and carry that positive momentum into the long winter months that lie ahead. and on the evidence of qualifying today it came as a real shot in the arm for one driver. the sun might be setting on the formula 1 season but mercedes were not about to take things easy. despite already securing the drivers and constructors championship, the
dominated qualifying. valterri bottas has rarely got the better of lewis hamilton this season but was quickest in the earlier session. 0n the few occasions hamilton has suffered it has often been dealt a fate. a lot of fumes in my helmet. not even that could stop him as he smashed the track record. bottas's hopes of claiming second are extremely slim, he needs to win sunday's race with sebastian vettel finishing ninth or lower. you could not have set himself up any better, breaking the track record in beating hamilton to pole position by more than one tenth of a second. but with sebastian vettel third on the grid looks like the german will end the season has the best of the rest. looks like the german will end the season has the best of the restlj think we could be a bit closer but they have been very strong. valterri made a great lap so congrats to him. 0vertaking is not always straightforward but not impossible.
i was straightforward but not impossible. iwasa straightforward but not impossible. i was a tent in hartington won and lost it in five or six so either way it has been an incredible year of qualifying and one i have really enjoyed, so, it is great to see so many british flags here and so many people here. iappreciate it.|j many british flags here and so many people here. iappreciate it. i need to keep it under control and keep going with the car. i got enough for pole position so that is —— so i'm really happy. bottas rightfully delighted with his own performance but he now needs to get the job done on sunday afternoon, he started on pole position in was ill and was beaten to the win by sebastian vettel. can he complete the job here in abu dhabi and take when number three of his career? the duo of misha mcneill and meeka moore have secured the best result for british women at the bobsleigh world cup for over eight years. they were only able to compete on the circuit this year by raising more than 30—thousand pounds through crowdfunding, after british bobsleigh withdrew their funding due
