Hi Newsrounders, I'm Jenny, live with all the news you need
to know this Saturday.
Can England stay unbeaten in their Six Nations
match against Wales?
And pets become models in New York.
You have cat to be kitten me!
It's another big weekend of sporting action -
loads of rugby and football.
Let's start off with the Premier League.
In the lunchtime kick off Arsenal are taking
on Hull City at the Emirates.
It's currently 1-0 to Arsenal.
The big match this afternoon is at Anfield -
where Harry Kane's Tottenham Hotpsur go to face out-of-form Liverpool.
And one of the Six Nations biggest games takes place later,
Wales take on England in Cardiff.
It's the 130th time they've played.
Last week Wales beat Italy and England squeezed past France
to keep up their 15 match unbeaten run.
Online we asked who you think will win - and it seems to be
the Wales fans who feel the most confident.
Daniel, who's 10, says Wales will definitely win,
because they have the power of the dragon!
Wales fan Kayla says she will be supporting Wales,
because they are a really great team, and Lee Halfpenny
will score loads of points.
But Jessica says she thinks that England will definitely win.
Thanks for your comments, guys!
Next up, I love a safari, but when Newsround asked me to go
on one with the Scottish Wildlife Trust in the town of Irvine,
I didn't realise we'd be looking for something OTHER than animals.
I've got my binoculars, I've got my safari truck,
I've got my guide.
Jill, what can we expect to see today?
A whole lot of rubbish.
We'd better get cracking, then.
That's because Jill works for a charity that clean
up after fly-tipping, when people dump big pieces
of litter in places they shouldn't, often in the countryside.
It's against the law and it costs thousands of pounds
to remove every year.
So what kind of things have you found?
You wouldn't believe what you find - baths, fridges, mattresses,
bags of household rubbish.
And it wasn't long before we found our first bit of rubbish.
And this is the kind of thing, it looks like somebody's just thrown
out their kitchen waste.
Nappies, cans, bottles.
Why do people do this?
I don't really know why, because there are facilities
there for people to take rubbish to Council refuse sites.
Maybe it's just laziness, they can't be bothered
taking it down that day.
What impact does this have on the environment,
It's not good at all.
It's full of germs, it's got sharps, small animals can get trapped
in the bottles and cans, there can be paint and chemicals
that can be spilled into water courses.
And it also puts people off going to visit the place.
Once you've found the rubbish, what happens next?
Well, our volunteers and staff will collect it up in bags
or on a trailer and take it to the council tip, and that's
where people should be taking it in the first place.
If you see it happening, report it to your council -
they've all got helplines and websites you can report to.
Just don't let it happen in your community, don't accept it.
From fly-tipping, to trucks tipping.
The patrol car you can see, doesn't have anyone in it, luckily.
Because there were winds of 90 miles an hour in Wyoming, America,
big trucks weren't supposed to be driving on the highway,
but this truck was.
No one was hurt, but it was all caught on camera,
by the police car in front.
Volunteers in New Zealand have managed to re-float about 100
of the 400 pilot whales that became stranded on beaches on Friday.
Sadly many whales have died and it's thought another 200 may have
got stuck overnight.
It's the worst case of this type the country has ever seen.
So why does it happen?
Here's what you need to know.
Beaching is when whales becomes stuck on sand,
and it can be very dangerous.
Marine scientists don't have one clear reason
to explain why it happens.
Here are some of the theories.
It's thought some whales become stranded because they are sick
or injured and pushed in shore by currents or are
simply too ill to swim.
Whales rely on something called sonar to work out where
they are and where they are going.
They send out sound waves or pulses which bounce
back off surfaces.
Some ships use sonar pulses too which have been linked to whales
getting stranded and marine scientists think if the two cross
paths the whales could become confused and injured.
It's thought changes in the environment can cause them
to behave differently too.
Perhaps food stocks are low, temperatures are unusually
high or low or the water they are in has become polluted.
And even whales make mistakes.
It's thought they can sometimes lose their way into shallow waters
by accident while travelling to warmer waters to mate.
Whales are very sociable creatures and often travel
in large pods or groups.
But marine scientists think if one is affected by any of the last four
reasons then others travelling with it will copy them.
How about this for a "cat" walk?
Pet owners in the US, along with their cats,
dogs and even rats, took to the runway for the New York Pet
Fashion Show this week.
It's the largest one of its kind in America and saw the animals
dressed up in many weird and wonderful outfits,
including costumes representing different countries.
Finally - these clothes are good enough to eat - quite literally!
All of the outfits have been made with chocolate.
They've been shown off at a chocolate fair
in Belgium, in Europe.
Perhaps not the most practical of clothes,
but I bet it smells good.
That's all from the team this Saturday, Newsround's back right
here at 10am tomorrow morning.
Have a brilliant afternoon!
