our reporter sarah mulkerrins was watching the action. europe have never won a solheim cup when they have lost the morning session on the opening day, so so important for katrina mathew and her european team to get off to a good start and they certainly did. after the morning courses, they led by two and a half points to wanted a half, three of the english players in particular pulling off the performances. major champion georgia hall security point in her pairing, as did charley hull. that is four times she has played in the solheim cup despite being 23. going into the afternoon, you're wondering where the challenge may come from the americans and he came merely on from a record equalling when in the match, angel yen and allie mcdonnell doing ever so well. shortly after, europe got a point on the board. and
thenit europe got a point on the board. and then it all came down to the drama of the final two matches. spare a thought. did it ever so well to come back from two down with four to play to go back from two down with four to play togo1— back from two down with four to play to go1— up. back from two down with four to play to go 1— up. they had to have the whole, but the good point for the usa was the final for off with six play. they ended up happening that whole. it is a one point lead for europe —— hole. jofra archer was the star of the show as england took charge of the fifth and final ashes test on day two. the home side made 294, before archer took 6 for 62 as australia were bowled out for 225. sam curran ripped through the middle order as steve smith stood firm making 80. our sports correspondent
joe wilson was at the oval. the day began here with the end of england's first innings and start of their second innings. in between, ten australian wickets, six of them to jofra archer, ten australian wickets, six of them tojofra archer, who was certainly at his desk today. his duel in the afternoon a particular highlight prior to that, some cheap wickets again. david warnerfalling prior to that, some cheap wickets again. david warner falling for five. in the context of his series, not a bad score. in the context of steve smith's series, getting him off or 80 seemed like a good win. wa, the kind england had hoped to ta ke wa, the kind england had hoped to take against smith so many times so much earlier in the series. we also had the impact of sam curran, making his ashes debut. two and two balls
for his left arm swinging medium pace swing. to close, england's openers survived a tricky start. they will be back on saturday morning and england will hope to end their long summer. even if we know their long summer. even if we know the urn is going down under. there's still a lot to play for. there's still a lot to play for. there's the test championships and personal gain, you know? although the ashes is lost, we still got a lot to play for. we are only 75 runs behind. teams have come back and one from this margin before, and we created another opportunity tonight and i think it's going to be key for us to bowl well with the new ball in the morning. london broncos have been relegated from rugby league's super league — after an 19—10 defeat at wakefield.
on what was billed as friday the 13th fright night, both those sides were in danger of dropping into the championship in the final round of matches — along with hull kr and huddersfield. in the end, it was london that lost out, asjoe lynskey reports. in this sport, where they hit the hardest, the feet at the very end goes deeper. this was really gay for london broncos on the kind of night not seen in super league before —— dash that this wasn't relegation. this two—week field and they were sure to go down. sometimes the bounce can make a season. wakefield brittany mix themselves, the final week focus the team were banned from susan social media. it looks like tough love paying off with a half—time lead. london collected their thoughts but then were outsmarted on the ball. a second try for ryan hampshire puts west yorkshire in command, and for the
side from the capital, there was no way back when wakefield ran in a third try. that results into that for huddersfield and hold kr committee pressure was eased. they we re committee pressure was eased. they were the other two sides in the mix —— hull were the other two sides in the mix -- hull kr. were the other two sides in the mix —— hull kr. for those teams any sport, there is no time to look forward. no english team south of orienting is now left at the top of. for broncos, a one season stay, and the gap between the top two leaks is ha rd to the gap between the top two leaks is hard to console —— no english team south of warrington. and here then, is the table. so london broncos then are relegated afterjust one season in super league. hull kr lost at salford red devils but their superior points difference saw them survive. huddersfield beat catalan dragons to ensure survial too. salford are confirmed in third place ahead of warrington. castleford take the final play—off place as a result of hull fc‘s defeat to st helens.
it's stilljust one win for derby county in the championship this season after they drew at home to cardiff. it ended 1—1 at pride park. scot malone had put derby in front afterjust six minutes before cardiff equalised from the penalty spot 13 minutes later through robert glatzel. chelsea manager frank lampard believes there've been more than four refereeing mistakes through the use of var in the premier league this season. former referee mike riley, who's responsible for the use of var in england, said yesterday that four decisions should have been changed by var but weren't. lampard disagrees. i won't agree with four, because it was five. i was surprised that didn't refute. all managers will probably have their own minds that that was a clear penalty. maybe we should have all expected a bit of a
in between process or we are all coming to terms with it. i don't think any intention about it. definitely not form what i've seen. they are try to get every thing right. but i would appreciate is admitting some irregularities, something that wasn't quite right. arguably the most intriguing match of the premier league weekend features manchester united and leicester city at old trafford. the visitors will arrive unbeaten, whilst united haven't won since the opening weekend. and when you look at the the table, no doubt leicester will have hopes of a top six finish, perhaps at united's expense. that would be interesting for harry maguire, the most expensive defender in the world who moved from leicester to united in the summer. and despite his team underachieving so far, 0le gunnar solskjaer believes maguire's already shown enough to be a future captain. he is definitely a character in a
personality that can be captain of the big club, yeah. and he's a leader of... in the dressing room, both by performances, presence, stature and behaviour. he's a character that you would say you would like to follow, and some are technical leaders, summer leaders by voice command and he's got a lot, really. manchester city defender aymeric laporte will be out for up to six months after having knee surgery. pep guardiola has admitted it'll be next year before the frenchman returns. john stones is fit again, however, for the champions' visit to norwich tomorrow. arsenal's alexandre lacazette is also facing a period out — albeit not nearly as long. the striker will miss at least the rest of september with an ankle injury. time now to bring you up to date with some of the day's other sport stories.
