6:33 pm
sportsday, red devils and saints, very few predicted the super league grand final. and we hearfrom the gymnast nile wilson, his world championships wiped out with injury, how has he been coping away from competition? it evening. we will be marking your ca rd it evening. we will be marking your card for a packed weekend of sport but how much sport are beginning to see injapan? but how much sport are beginning to see in japan? typhoon but how much sport are beginning to see injapan? typhoon hagibis is due to make landfall in the next few hours, two rugby world cup matches have already been cancelled tomorrow and more could follow. scotland are exploring their legal options should theirs be called off on sunday.
6:34 pm
that's because the game in yokohama against the hosts is one they realistically have to win to reach the quarterfinals. world rugby say they are disappointed with scotland's comments and have pointed to the terms of participation at the tournament that states pool games can only be cancelled, not moved or postponed. andy burke is with the squad. still day in yokohama but this is a city going into lockdown mode with the impending threat of typhoon hagibis. the scotland team arrived to date staring into the face of a storm in every respect. they must privatise their safety from the devastating effect of mother nature while a debate rages between scottish rugby in the world governing body. the last thing i wa nt to governing body. the last thing i want to do here is get involved in talking about legal matters. what we have got is a legal opinion that supports our view that there is some
6:35 pm
flexibility on the scheduling. what we really need to talk about is a common—sense approach to what has been a fantastic tournament. when you're asking for someone to reconsider something as big as this, we are trying to base the argument on the fact there is sporting integrity. if you are an economic powerhouse of the game, i think it comes with more clout and most people feel if it was for example new zealand, perhaps more thought would be given to a flexible approach. in yokohama we wait to see if the typhoon is as severe as many fear. what the level of damage caused and what effect it will have onjapan, indeed, caused and what effect it will have on japan, indeed, but caused and what effect it will have onjapan, indeed, but that match even go ahead? today it's fair to say that the war of words shows little sign of abating in the comments made by matt dodson having gone down well with those at the top of the global game. in a statement world rug by of the global game. in a statement world rugby said it is disappointing
6:36 pm
the scottish rugby union should make such comments at a time when we are doing everything we can to enable all sunday's matches to take place as scheduled. full the dispute and finger pointing, the overriding hope is that typhoon hagibis pulses with minimal damage and then we can assess where it leads scotland's world cup campaign. so, scotland weights and probably watch what happens between ireland and samoa who are also in that pool. that match is the only one that goes ahead tomorrow. sports correspondent is there. there has so much talk about typhoon hagibis and what may 01’ about typhoon hagibis and what may or may not happen but where we are here is about 700 miles away from tokyo, it's the opposite side of the country and out of the path of the storm. they are getting ready for a by storm. they are getting ready for a rugby game. ireland trained in the stadium just behind me and i don't think they will have been very
6:37 pm
impressed with the pitch. it looked dry and patchy, some of them lifted up dry and patchy, some of them lifted up sections of the turf. it is something the scrum coach was asked about in the press conference. they say they have been given assurances that the pitch is playable and safe and he was also asked about the typhoon and he said he had sympathy with all those people affected. we are obviously sympathetic to all the people that have had their games cancelled. from our point of view, as soon as we knew we had a game on, no matter what happens on sunday, we need to win our game. getting fans excited is i focus on trying to create energy around. island have made 11 changes to the side that beat russia. in comes conor murray,
6:38 pm
johnny sexton returns at fly half and we will see robbie henshaw play for the first time in the world cup. he's missed the first three games with a hamstring injury. it is a strong sidejoe with a hamstring injury. it is a strong side joe schmidt with a hamstring injury. it is a strong sidejoe schmidt has named. he knows ireland have to beat samoa with a bonus point. ireland are very much wanting to wrap things up and not leave anything to chance. it's going to be anything to chance. it's going to be a nervy and uncertain 2a hours for all the parties concerned. australia have played their final match in pool d. a bonus point win against georgia. the weather was terrible but it was still a fairly laboured performance from the wallabies, that score from the win and koroibete was the pick of their four tries. they go top of the pool for now. wales
6:39 pm
should finish on top with a win over uruguay on sunday which would then set upa uruguay on sunday which would then set up a quarterfinal against france. australia face england in the last eight. warren gatland has made 13 changes to his side with justin tipuric set to captain and for the first time. formula 1 is also injapan for the first time. formula 1 is also in japan this for the first time. formula 1 is also injapan this weekend. qualifying has been postponed and is now going to take place on sunday morning before the race in suzuka. we are hours away from what we expect will been typhoon hagibis hitting this area ofjapan. it supposed to be the worst typhoon in the area has seen in many years, over 50 yea rs the area has seen in many years, over 50 years and rainfall wise, expecting up to one metre. formula 1
6:40 pm
and the governing bodies have decided nothing could happen at the track, they would be a few people just making sure generators are kept going, that the electricity supply is ok and things are safe but nobody would be allowed into this circuit with regards to media orfans and the next action we will see on track will be sunday morning. we are expecting qualifying to take place at10am. expecting qualifying to take place at 10am. before that cheques will have to take place to make sure the integrity of the surface and track is ok and it's safe for fans. fans coming through the park and they have to check the entrance will be 0kfor have to check the entrance will be ok for them to come in. if qualifying can't take place, it's looking good for mercedes, valtteri bottas is the first is today and they will take the from practice to a grid. that was the mercedes work out the front row. and it is a mixed upgrade but we are expecting the rain to clearand upgrade but we are expecting the rain to clear and the weather to be much better come sunday. let's move
6:41 pm
away from japan and the weather reports. today we heard that nike are shutting down the oregon project in the wake of alberto salazar's four year ban for doping violations. he was head of the training camp for elite athletes wear their a successful product was so mo farah. he has always denied any wrongdoing and cut ties with salazar two years ago after a six—year association that saw him win ten global titles. in the last hour he has faced the media chicago ahead of the marathon. 0ur editor was at the conference. that's where the news conference has taken place and you managed to get a word with mo farah? we did, absolutely. in the last few moments in fact. it's the first time he has publicly addressed the alberto
6:42 pm
salazar scandal, he was banned for four years ten days ago. he held a brief press conference but he wasn't asked about it and there were no questions allowed from the assembled media but he did agree to speak to a few british journalists in chicago where he will try and defend his marathon title on sunday. he took several questions about his reaction. the news has sent shock waves. he fell short of condemning alberto salazar. we asked him whether he welcomed the news he had been kicked out of athletics and he refused to say that. instead he launched something of an attack on the british media, claiming it was unfair, these allegations, but none of the accusations were ever levelled against him or any other 0regon project athletes and yet he felt he had been in some way embroiled in the scandal unfairly. he explained he had gone to speak to
6:43 pm
salazar in 2015 when the allegations we re salazar in 2015 when the allegations were first aired and received assurances that is why she stayed with him for two and a half years and that he had no idea salazar had been charged in 2017. he said he was trying to prepare for the chicago marathon but all the talk is of this incredible scandal, which has now claimed the oregon project itself because nike have concluded, saying today they thought it was too much ofa today they thought it was too much of a distraction for athletes and they had to wind it up. they are trying to get some separation between them but it had become a toxic training programme. many thanks. we will hear some of that mo farah interview later on bbc news. in the football, wales, scotland and northern ireland slipped up in their euro qualifiers last night but england can qualify for next
6:44 pm
summer's tournament if they beat the czech republic tonight. kick—off is just over an hour away in prague. the ground behind me is the largest one available to the czech national team. the capacity at the home of salvia prague isjust a bit over 20,000. the england fans who have tickets will be able to make themselves heard. the concern for themselves heard. the concern for the british police has always been the british police has always been the presence of fans without tickets, who just came to prague for a friday night out in a party city. we spent some hours in the old town where most of the england fans have been congregating. there is definitely a somewhat raucous presence but it seemed under control. the czech police are choosing their moments to make their presence felt. there has been a lot of focus on the young attacking exciting players available to gareth southgate, add mason mount to that list. remembering all the goals that flew in against kosovo, i wonder if
6:45 pm
gareth southgate's priority might be a strong defensive performance this evening, a victory to secure qualification. maybe then he could experiment a bit in bulgaria on monday. still to come... we look ahead to the inaugural beach games in loja with great britain's women one of the favourites for a medal in the beach that will —— in doha. rushehs the beach that will —— in doha. rusher‘s nikita in won gold in the men's all—round event at the world gymnastics championships in stuttgart after winning gold in the tea m eve nt stuttgart after winning gold in the team event on wednesday, he edged out his compatriot to win his first individual world title. not the best day for great britain as joe individual world title. not the best day for great britain asjoe fraser and james hall could only finish eighth and 14th respectively. nile wilson had hoped to be at the world
6:46 pm
champs but a series of injuries means this year has been a write—off for him. he is now targeting the tokyo 0lympics next year and has been speaking with the bbc‘s tanya arnold about the difficult time his head away from competition. i'm alive, and healthy, i've got an amazing family, house and amazing fans. ijust amazing family, house and amazing fans. i just opened amazing family, house and amazing fans. ijust opened a gym club. what actually is wrong in my life? not a lot. but then there is that disconnect between my identity, that's what it is, from five years old the only thing i notice gymnastics. and olympic medallist, successful businessmen with more than a million youtube followers, it all sounds perfect. but a series of injuries and nile wilson was feeling lost. there was just a injuries and nile wilson was feeling lost. there wasjust a build-up of things happening my life, coupled with the growth, the enormity of the attention, the eyeballs on me and then the neck was... that was me
6:47 pm
falling off the cliff, the tipping point. before i knew it i found myself in a place where i had chronic anxiety, real low mood without being able to explain why. he got within days of competing and then his shoulder went. you can see my right shoulder, it's called winging. he's working hard on rehab and with psychologists but it's all still very raw. to me it's all about the process and who i am and being a nice person and working hard and doing what i love. i assume you weren't being. yeah. when you feel those feelings and you don't know how to cope, the easiest thing to do in that moment is to turn to... we all know the substances, alcohol is
6:48 pm
all know the substances, alcohol is a brilliant example. a few drinks, the anxiety is gone. so, to manage things like depression and deep anxiety, until you've had it, things like depression and deep anxiety, untilyou've had it, it's like a anxiety, untilyou've had it, it's likea pain anxiety, untilyou've had it, it's like a pain you can't see. that's pa rt like a pain you can't see. that's part of the problem, you feel a bit ashamed we don't want to talk to anyone about it. he hopes what he has been through will stand him in good stead for next year. so now, the olympic dream still alive. i'm going to put everything i've got into these ten months and you will see me in tokyo, i promise you. nile wilson there. time to have a look at some of the other headlines. heather watson is three to her first semifinal on the wta tour, she served four match points beating magda linette in her quarterfinal at the tianjin 0pen. josh warrington has weighed in for his 30th
6:49 pm
professional bout. fighting in his hometown of leeds. liverpool's 16—year—old when a harvey elliott has been banned for a0 days by the fa for using offensive language mocking the england captain harry kane. the england cricketers katherine brunt and nasa have been together for two years and are engaged. front proposed on new year's eve last year. the delay in going public with their news is because brunt was worried about her pa rents because brunt was worried about her parents reaction. that person that i am deep down is somebody i've always kept quite enclosed and quite away from the public. i've done that for such a long time now but i'm at the point where i'm bored of that, i just want to be me and if people don't like me for me that's their decision. i'm not going to care
6:50 pm
about what other people think any more and just focus on me and my happiness. if i can show the world how happy i am with the decision i've made and how i go about it is then hopefully going to encourage other people not to be so enclosed and be more themselves. its rugby league's grand final at old trafford tomorrow, the climax to the super league season, st helens are heavy favourites to beat salford red devils. we are here to look ahead to the climax, the showpiece. how have salford got themselves in this position? i think that is the question, the whole of rugby league is asking it at the moment. salford into the grand final for the very first time. there were many people's prediction for relegation this season, they flirted with the drop over recent yea rs season, they flirted with the drop over recent years but have made it to old trafford. there they will face the mighty st helens. 0ver to old trafford. there they will face the mighty st helens. over the past couple of years, they have been
6:51 pm
a past couple of years, they have been by past couple of years, they have been a rugby league phenomenon. they are one of the sports biggest names, six time grand final winners. this year they've taken the league by storm, they've taken the league by storm, the best and most consistent side around. just to give you some idea of that, how dominant they have been, let's have a look at the table at the end of the season. st helens finishing top. this is the column to look at here. much of that down to justin holbrook their coach. he is leaving saints after the match tomorrow to return down under and ta ke tomorrow to return down under and take over the gold coast titans. let's have a look at how his brilliant saints side got to the grand final. a very convincing a0—10 victory over wigan warriors in the semifinal. saints have collected plenty of plaudits withjustin holbrook named coach of the year and
6:52 pm
five players included in the super league dream team. it would be a massive shock if they were beaten tomorrow night. i think it's the best result in the history of the game. full credit to the players but we are going to do it when it counts. it's about us going out there. now it is go out, do it again and it's going to be a great day. it isa grand and it's going to be a great day. it is a grand final, we know that but for us we are going to continue playing how we are playing and be clear on that. they were beaten in the challenge cup final by warrington so they are beatable but they will be desperate to lift the trophy tomorrow night. let's talk a bit more about salford. they really are the talking point. they get into this as massive underdogs. just to
6:53 pm
put things in context, salford winning tomorrow would be a bit like when leicester city won the premier league. they finished third in the table, had to get to the final the ha rd table, had to get to the final the hard way after losing their opening game but they were very convincing in the 28—a victory over wigan. it sent shock waves through the sport of rugby league, they have upset the established order. salford have been champions before but not in the modern era. you have to go back a3 yea rs modern era. you have to go back a3 years for their last title. it's been a rocky ride for them since then. ian watson does seem to be playing it pretty cool. trying not to think about it. i think other people will look at it and say how big the occasion is going to be for you personally but for me i'm just focused on doing myjob and making sure we are prepped. it might hit afterwards but at the moment it is
6:54 pm
certainly not hit, the magnitude of it although i know it's going to be a special occasion, a special day. are really intriguing encounter in—store. kick off tomorrow night at 6pm. highlights on bbc two on sunday. before that, tonight it's the women's super league grand final. leeds rhinos taking on castleford. leeds looking to com plete castleford. leeds looking to complete the double after the challenge cup. the tigers have only lost two games in all competitions this season, both games should be tremendous. many thanks. the inaugural world beach games are under way in doha, almost a hundred nations taking part. beach football is also on the programme and great britain's women are one of the
6:55 pm
favourites. you would think it's a similargame to favourites. you would think it's a similar game to grass football but the ball is so unpredictable. it's a kind of completely different game. technically it's all in the air to keep the speed of the game. a bit more skilful and, yeah, just throw yourself around on the sand. as a goalkeeper, you can't judge yourself around on the sand. as a goalkeeper, you can'tjudge where the ball is going. is it intense? it's really intense. a 12 minute quarter and it's really intense. a 12 minute quarterand i'm it's really intense. a 12 minute quarter and i'm shattered by the end of it. it's a different fitness required, different rules, different tactics but i love the feeling of being barefoot in the sand and it is really exciting. how real does it feel to be going to a competition? from a really early age i remember watching the olympics and being inspired by the athletes, to get the
