hello and welcome to sportsday. good evening, we'll have manchester city's record breaking afternoon and details from today's other premier league matches a bit later, but let's start injapan with the rugby world cup. three matches today and the pick of todays group matches was a clash of the southern hemisphere heavyweights. the reigning champions new zealand against the 2 time winners south africa, the all blacks coming out on top, 23 points to 13. from yokohama, here's our sports correspondent katie gornall ra rely rarely assist trophy out of their grasp, new zealand and south africa have wa nted grasp, new zealand and south africa have wanted five times it would not be the world cup without this. but south africa had no trouble there,
but in front of the post. this was a heavyweight battle, after 20 minutes, they ran through the south african defence as few sites can. minutes later they struck again, this time through the 1a points clearer by half—time. they were in control but as soon as the concentration wavered, they were in, but try as they might, south africa just could not really new zealand in. but the final, these two could be reunited before too long. many thought there could've been an upset here given south africa plus plus form coming into this tournament, new zealand were ruthless and they we re new zealand were ruthless and they were lifting the cup for the fifth time ina were lifting the cup for the fifth time in a row. there is plenty of stuff they can work on, but they showed a lot of fortitude and plenty of opportunities and they took them. we scrambled really well and they
had a lot of opportunities themselves and is really important. if we can 11 penalties to two, i think discipline was our biggest downfall and them scoring two charges in the early game, all we can say is well done to them. the first match of the day was in sapporo and australia had a scare, they trailed fiji mid—way through the second half but still won 39—21. tulsen tullet was at the game for us. it was a full house in here but the first of two contests here this weekend in the end, it was australia who won by 39 points to 21, when the first 15 minutes, you'll like what was going on here. and they were really making inroads in fiji were ahead half—time and further ahead just after the interval and onto the
pitch around ten in the second half. 0ne pitch around ten in the second half. one of the veterans came off the bench and a change the complexion of the game. the line—up was working, and picking up the name of the match, scored two of those tribes, in wasa match, scored two of those tribes, in was a little bit harsh but in fiji, staying there while also in this pool as well, so it will be fiji final game, but all the play forfor fiji final game, but all the play for for them, fiji final game, but all the play forfor them, they fiji final game, but all the play for for them, they can still make it to the quarterfinals but for the wallabies, the around world cup time in in the second half of this time in the second half of this time and they picked up a much better victory. france had a narrow win against argentina. it finished 23—21 in tokyo. the french had a 17 point lead at half—time, but the pumas fought back to take the lead. replacement camille lopez won it for the french, his drop goal inside the last ten minute saw them retake the lead.
argentina missed a late penalty to win it and may now struggle to get out of pool c, which also includes england we'll have the latest news from the home nations a bit later in the programme, they all start their world cups over the next couple of days to the football, we'll get to that manchester city game in a moment, but for a couple of hours leicester climbed to second in the table. they came from behind to beat spurs 2—1 at home in a match that again had the fans questioning the virtues of var eleanor roper reports todd todeim took todd jim took to the king power stadium fresh from a disappointing start to their champions league campaign they had not followed the game plan but today a different game and a different plan. a match that
once again showed us why var was introduced. the goalfor once again showed us why var was introduced. the goal for lester disallowed in the home cloud dissolution. for the might of looked down, they definitely weren't out. —— dissolution. scoring is fit for the season, even lying down on the job. into the second half in the second goalfor job. into the second half in the second goal for the job. into the second half in the second goalfor the spurs job. into the second half in the second goal for the spurs or so job. into the second half in the second goalfor the spurs or so it seemed, another big moment for the game and for var, another goal ruled out by the finest of margins. unbelievably the score is still 1—0 until lester equalled this time for real. and in a late goalfrom james madison gave them the victory, disappointment for the second time of the week for the spurs. it was just a case of preparing the players mentally for the game and the second half and we had to adapt the second half and we had to adapt the system only spoke half—time and
something that we worked on of the course of the preseason and the players deserve huge credit because the quality that they showed was top class against a north london team. football happened and it changed quick and the emotions during the game and conceding the second goal, we feel disappointed but we have to keep working, with the same motivation and of course we have a lot of games ahead and they are coming quick and we need to be ready. right, to the rest of the prmier league matches, adam wild right, to the rest of the premier league matches, adam wild let's start at the etihad, this man here, pep guardiola. he made 4 changes to his manchester city side that let's start at the etihad, this man here, pep guardiola. he made 4 changes to his manchester city side that were beaten by norwich last weekend, for the visit of watford. and, i think its fair to say his
team responded in some style. perhaps a moment to look away for watford fans. it finished manchester city 8 — watford 0. just one goal away from that premier league record. city ahead inside the first minute. just 53 seconds is all it took for david silva to poke in the first. if watford were hoping to keep it tight, i'm afraid that went straight out the window. sergio ageuero with a penalty. 2—nil after 6 minutes. that's 8 goals in 6 games now for the argentinian riyad mahrez, back in the side, scored from a deflected free kick, that was 3—nil inside 12 minutes. things getting pretty embarrassing for quique sanchez flores side. and it only got worse. bernmardo silva added another, then nicolas 0tamendi. 5 goals in the first 18 minutes. the quickest team to 5—nil in premier league history. and at the point, well you really were fearing the worst for watford. bernardo silva got his second shortly after half time,
he then completed his hat trick. thats his first for manchester city, indeed his first ever senior hat trick. before perhaps the best goal of the lot, kevin de bruyne with manchester city's 8th of the afternoon. so if there was any question at all about how city might bounce back after that defeat last weekend, well i think its fair to say they answered them. as comfortable an afternoon as they're ever likely to have. as for watford, well, a very grim day for the premier leagues bottom side. what i like the most is the second term normally can be so boring and people start to do what they want, they start to play for themselves and it was completely the opposite so we and it was completely the opposite so we played more aggressive than the first half and we continued to
score goals and it was a good day for ourfans, score goals and it was a good day for our fans, supporters and score goals and it was a good day for ourfans, supporters and a lovely day in the sunshine. for the players, they dedicated so we have to work, we want to play against manchester city and we so what of the team that actually beat manchester city last weekend 7 well, this is how they fared. losing 2—nil at burnley. both goals coming in the first half from this man chris wood. pretty comfortable it was in the end for burnley who now move up to 7th in the table. that is in fact their first win since the opening day of the season. norwich then, down to earth with a bump after that victory last week. they remain just above the bottom three.
i thought we were excellent throughout the particularly the first 15 to 20 minutes, we really started on the front foot, i think we did not venture too much out of the first half but it was an early performance but it gives control of the game. sheffield united won away for the first time since their return to the premier league. 2—nil it finished at goodison park against everton. this was the first goal. right on half time, totally against the run of play. sheffield uniteds first corner of the match, yerry mina heading the ball into his own net. lys mousset added a second in the second half, thats his forst goal for sheffield united. a good win for for chris wilder's side, they had to soak up a lot of pressure. the everton crowd though were far from happy with their side. plenty of boos going around goodison. some pressure now on their manager marco silva. we are delighted, just a little
ridiculous game and died think those that played all season. and honestly, we deserve some from last week's game considering how he played and plenty of tough sites today and we did not really play anywhere near where we would've liked to and come away winning 2—0 is just ridiculous game they were involved in. there we go, just to confirm those results including that extraordinary scoreline for manchester city, just in case you didn't believe me the first time. 8—nil it finished at the etihad. down at the bottom there, the late kick off where newcastle united are playing brighton. that game into the second half at st james park. a glance at the table then, manchester city second behind liverpool who play chelsea tomorrow. leicester up to third after beating spurs. whilst down at the bottom, things looking pretty tough for watford. still without a win this season.
but four games tomorrow so that table could all change by the end of the weekend. 0lly. in the championship, leeds are still top of the table but they slipped up at home to derby, conceding a late equaliser leeds took the lead with a max lowe own goal. and they should have been home and dry in the second half, they missed a penlaty and wasted numerous other chances, they paid for that as chris martin scored for derby in stoppage time — his first goal for the club in nearly two years. 1—all the final score swansea stay second in the table after they drew with bristol city. preston north end moved up to third with a 1—nil win at birmingham, while qpr go fourth after a 2—1 at milwall. there were also wins for cardiff, hull, nottingham forrest, blackburn and wigan. aberdeen have moved up to third in the scottish premiership after they beat
livingston 2—nil away from home. ross county are fifth after a 2—1win at motherwell. st mirren and hamilton was goalless. celtic and rangers both play tomorrow. there are 80 fa cup ties this weekend, we've reached the 2nd qualifying round. irlam fc from the 9th tier are out, they lost to former league side york city 2—nil. kyle mcfarlane sealed irlams fate with the second of the game. you can keep up to date with the rest of the fa cup and scottish cup scores on the bbc sport website. still to come on sportsday. did you know that i can fly even faster than i can run? we hear from the british sprinter on how he's already got a 2nd career mapped out.
now back to the rugby world cup because the first of the home nations get their campaigns under way tomorrow in japan. the big game is in yokohama where ireland — the number one ranked side in the world — take on scotland. the irish narrowly won the last time they met in the six nations earlier this year, and the scottish captain expects that there won't be much between them again. i think it's going to be like to ta ke i think it's going to be like to take in, we are excited to be going against them and they have a lot of strong players they think we do as well and we are testing it's a very strong group and we did well in the past couple of days, we are ready. i'll really be confident that we will be tough to beat. you will see a very collective effort and that
effort will make us tough to beat and there is no doubt that the scottish team are working away and they're going to make sure that they have something similar. i don't think there's a huge amount between the two teams and whoever does get the two teams and whoever does get the bounce of the ball or can be just to be more efficient than the other, they mayjust take the victory. england also get going tomorrow... they face tonga at 11.15 in sapporo. four years ago they became the first host nation to be knocked out in the group stage. 0ur correspondent andy swiss is with the england squad. you can see the players training for the final time before the world cup campaign gets under way as you can see, conditions from which perfect of course the weather won't be a factor tomorrow because they are playing under the dome. with the good news for england fans is that the team is pretty much a full strength year and of course it is a huge occasion for these players,
including when nick gets world cup debut. is my first time here and i'm enjoying it and not getting too worked up, and trying to chill out before the game and i think that the intensity and everything else will be there anyway. so, yeah i'm just excited and happy to be here. there will be hoping that all of this practise makes perfect tomorrow, they will start the overwhelming favourites against tonga as the world cup campaign finally kicks off. wales are the last of the home nations to get under way in the tournament. they face georgia in their pool d opener in toyota on monday. captain alun wynjones will equal gethinjenkins' wales record of 129 caps for his country, when he leads out the side. jones is playing in his fourth world cup and head coach warren gatland knows just how important he is to the team. he deserves all the accolades it is
to spend a great servant for rugby, andi to spend a great servant for rugby, and i think for the past couple of yea rs and i think for the past couple of years that it is notjust been wells, it is been worldwide as well and people realise just wells, it is been worldwide as well and people realisejust such wells, it is been worldwide as well and people realise just such a contribution is given to the road of by contribution is given to the road of rugby in performances in leadership and it is pleasing to see that someone and it is pleasing to see that someone from wells is recognised as one of the top players in the world in this position. 0n the home front, we've had the first round of matches in the premiership rugby cup, exeter chiefs beat bath 28—14. four tries from them, all converted. three in the first half and barry karea went over for their final score in the last ten minutes. there were also wins for saracens, worcester warriors, london irish and sale. the top women's league, the premier 15's starts today the two time champions saracens won 35—22 at bristol. harlequins put 101 points past richmond without reply. also a big win for gloucester—hartbury at waterloo.
gloucester—hartbury at waterloo. loughborough lighting and wasps ladies also won. in formula one, ferrari's charles leclair is on pole for the third time in a row. the championship leader lewis hamilton will be also be on the front row for tomorrow's singapore grand prix. jenny gow is there for us. at the beginning of the season, she was put into a ferrari car and many wondered could he races game and put up wondered could he races game and put up that metal? he showed over the last few races that he could do exactly that. he won from pole position, one again from pole position, one again from pole position and has given himself every chance of winning here in singapore by gaining pole position and he did it in such style, it wasn't perfect oi’ it in such style, it wasn't perfect or beautiful to watch, ragged and heartfelt but he has given himself every opportunity to try to win this race. lewis hamilton was right
alongside him and the rundown was a very short run down to turn one will be crucial. everything is to play for, looking to gain more fans, more momentum in the championship and looking to start writing this on history books. let's have a look at some of the other headliens today. defending champions worcestshire rapids are into the t20 blast final at edgbaston, they beat the nottinghamshire 0utlaws by one run. essex beat derbyshire in the other semifinal and the final is just getting underway angel alexander was the surprise winner at the ayr gold cupthe three year old is part owned by the former england striker michael owen. richard kingscote was onboard the 28—1 outsider england's danny willett will go into tomorrow's final round at the pga championships at wentworth tied in first place with spaniard jon rahm. both are on 15 under. justin rose is tied for 3rd. geraint thomas has pulled out of the world road race time trial

fabulous atmosphere today and the fans of been fantastic. this the first time that we had a pair cycling event integrated into a road championship how important is this? i think this is the start of big things a paris cyclist, if we out to the media and the press and get everybody involved and how good it is, the fans have been fantastic from start to finish the up and deepen most the villages from tandem writers, because the noise of the crowds has been so big going through. all the writers, everyone is being supported from the people who one and the people have finished, it'sjust who one and the people have finished, it's just been who one and the people have finished, it'sjust been superb. what should we be looking for? there are some fabulous races coming up, and inaugural event and will be interesting to see how people do, you have them going for the women's road race, and the local hero wants to win this title and i'll be good

free. i definitely want to give my commercial licence and after track and field is over for me, commercial licence and after track and field is overfor me, i can start a business in aviation and perhaps started school in angola. to be eligible for the olympics, he is now flying high for great britain, last year he won a breakthrough european gold, helped by a of training injamaica european gold, helped by a of training in jamaica with european gold, helped by a of training injamaica with a certain sprinting legend. when i first moved to jamaica and sprinting legend. when i first moved tojamaica and i sprinting legend. when i first moved to jamaica and i saw sprinting legend. when i first moved tojamaica and i saw him sprinting legend. when i first moved to jamaica and i saw him for the very first time in training, i almost lost my mind. what kind of mess just to give you. almost lost my mind. what kind of messjust to give you. to stay focused not get distracted anything. anything. and just enjoy the sport. this the track where he developed the speed to win eight 0lympic titles making it the perfect place for him to continue his development, but he is not discontent with
targeting titles. usain, he set the path for us to chase and setting the road records which might seem a little insane, but it is possible to become the world champion, 0lympic champion that is what motivates me. exactly, i can fly fast on the track and fly fast in the air. from the skies to the seas. now to a trip on sailing's super boat. british yachtsman alex thomson has unveiled the latest 6 million pound incarnation the boat he will sail in the next vendee globe. no britain has ever won the race although thomson did finish second in 2017. tony husband has been to the south coast meet him. the performance is very promising and we get up and fly which is very exciting and we go very fast, so we get better and better. this is hugo, a world—class boat and maybe this
time it is better than the rest. do not get fooled by the calm conditions, along with the crew heading out into the area. it will soon change in the first chance to see what is new on this boat. the first difference is sitting on all of the solar panels and we are taking a bit of a gamble and we are aiming, we're going to try to sell all the way around the world with no fossilfuel, all the way around the world with no fossil fuel, the cockpit has now gone fully inside and i'm a bit older and i do not like getting wet and the boat is so much faster that it is much more efficient to be inside. starting in november 2020 alex's looking to break french domination in event. you want to beat them. you love them but you wa nt to beat them. you love them but you want to beat them. have a great time doing this but it is about winning at the end of the day. we are now up

fast boat now have to make a reliable. she stands up to the challenge this boat and the sailor could take the place in history. a reminder of her top stories, rugby world cup, 8—0 against waterford and the premier league and will be back with another sports day but for now, goodbye. good evening. it has been another warm dry day across much of the uk today, some light conditions and temperatures as high as 27 celsius but things are about to change in terms of rather more audible and this is the picture in norwich, a beautiful blue skies but stills tend to make still clear skies, overnight
and in the west we have more cloud bringing in some outbreaks of heavy shower rain and northern ireland and wales in the west, it will be a night with some of us seeing temperatures no lower than about 17 degrees. it should stay dressed most of the day in england having quite a good deal of dry weather but an area of rain moving its way west across the uk and it will not be what it has been, 18 to 22 degrees but that u nsettled has been, 18 to 22 degrees but that unsettled field continuing into the working week with wet and windy weather in the southwest later on monday with some sunshine ahead but cooler than recent days from 17 to 20 degrees.
this is bbc news i'm rachel schofield. the headlines at seven. jeremy corbyn has quashed an attempt to oust tom watson as the deputy leader of the labour party — a row which has overshadowed the start of the party's conference in brighton. i'm particularly disappointed with the boss of momentum because i think he is notjust undermining me, he has undermined jeremy and the party, and frankly i think he has undermined the momentum delegates. the travel firm thomas cook has approached the government for emergency funding, as it tries to avoid going into administration — leaving customers facing uncertainty. teenage climate activist greta thunberg arrives to cheering crowds at a youth summit on climate change in new york —
