Let's play A Question Of Sport.
Hello, and welcome to A Question Of Sport.
Tonight there are two debutants on the panel,
but plenty of experience around them to steer them through.
We're going to get started this evening with the Picture Board.
-OK, Matt, you know the score.
Your team have a minute to get through
as many of the 12 as you can.
Which are you going for first?
Do you know what, Sue? I'm going to start at number nine this evening.
-Number 11. Good start.
-Who is that?
Oh, it's the Arsenal forward,
-No, it's not.
Move on, move on, next one.
Yarde, Marland Yarde.
Three. Good shout!
Come on, get in there!
What a start, 11 scored.
The only one you missed
was Adam Lallana.
To be honest, we didn't get to see
a lot of our England footballers over the summer.
I think that was after the Iceland game.
-So, tough score to start.
-Tuffers, are you ready?
Just see them and shout them out, boys. See them and shout them out.
Time will start
-when you pick the first number.
-Number one, please, Sue.
-Oh, that's Walcott...
Move on. Don't know it, move on. 11.
-Yes! That's good work.
That is good work.
The only one you missed out
-was Jessica Ennis-Hill.
For a full house! Of course it's Jess Ennis.
-We'll take 11, though.
Great scores, great start from both teams.
End of the round, both tied on 11.
It is Sports Action time now, so it's pens at the ready.
Make a note of who and what you see.
Super run between two and three, and she sustained it.
54.54, that's a good win.
50 yards left to go, and wins the Martell Grand National
for Ruby Walsh and Ted Walsh.
And Wales began the march.
Great play, and a brilliant try.
Another try for Wales, they move past 50.
Wow! What a fantastic pot.
He's done it!
Away, O'Loughlin over the top!
On his last night in Wigan colours!
Ooh, is that a good one?
Is that a good one?
Quick cover drive.
Just a gentle prod.
Taylor's available. What a turn!
What a goal!
Right, captains, we need you both up in the middle to spin the wheel.
Here we go, here we go.
So, having a look at the categories, any you're worried about?
Erm... Rival's choice.
-Don't like that.
-OK, Matt, we're going to ask you to spin first.
-Oh, just spin the thing.
Come on, then. See, look, it nearly fell off!
Move, move... Aw, rugby league...
Oh! Rugby league!
I've got my rugby league guru on my side.
OK, your rugby league question -
who was scoring the try in the corner?
-Boom, boom, boom!
-Off you go, then, Tuffers.
-Come on, please, give him cricket!
Please give him cricket.
I've forgotten his name, used to play for Middlesex, as well.
-Oh, captain's pick!
-You get to choose.
-No, out of those.
-Oh, out of these.
Oh, which ones do we know?
The football, the football?
-Football, please, Sue.
Hal Robson-Kanu was scoring for Wales at Euro 2016,
who was the goalkeeper he was beating?
-It was, yes! Well done. APPLAUSE
What a goal, by the way, what a goal.
Yeah, off you go, Daws.
Oh, my word.
-Was that a bit hard? Sorry.
-Don't want to accuse you...
-Oh, I know that one.
Do you? Go on, then.
Almost your bonus. What?
-No, I know the tennis one.
-Well, the tennis is, Novak Djokovic
was being beaten by which American at Wimbledon?
Cue the cricketer with enormous tennis knowledge in my team.
-Yes, it was, Jos. Well done.
What a team.
So, athletics, snooker, rugby union, CRICKET.
What do you reckon? What do you reckon?
-He wouldn't have been watching...
-It's got to be horse racing
or was athletics there as well?
-You're handing him athletics, are you?
Your question is, who was winning in the 400m hurdles?
Oh! Oh! I remember her!
I thought she was a swimmer!
Is it that one?
-What's her name?!
Oh, no. Struggling.
I didn't realise we'd get so much comedy value out of this.
Hold on. Eve...
Aw, I can't... Sue, no, it's gone.
Is it...? Helskin...
-I have to accept that.
Were you thinking of Fran Halsall?
-No, she's a swimmer.
-No, I don't know.
-OK, Jenny, who was it?
It was Eilidh Child, now Eilidh Doyle.
Eilidh Child, of course it was.
-Scottish. Scottish lass.
Exactly. So, Matt, you spin again.
-So you get a bonus point.
-Is that it?
-Is that it?!
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
Just giving them away!
We're nearly there.
-What's our golf like?
Adam Scott was in action at the US Masters,
but in which year did he win it?
Well, let's go back a little bit.
It must be three, four, five years ago.
Do you reckon? Any idea, boys?
Adam Scott, 2016 now, I reckon, let's have a little plump for...
It wouldn't have been, yeah, it wouldn't have been more than...
It's under ten.
It's under seven, so...
-'11? Fancy '11?
Happy with '11?
-Does Matt know?
No, it was '13.
Blimey. Can we stop spinning it now?
Yeah, you can sit back down now.
Well, that's made a difference. Phil is on 12,
but Matt in front on 14.
Now it is Home Or Away. One point for a home question.
Possible three if you go away.
Jenny, coming to you first.
-Are you happy going home?
Who finished outside the medals in the 800m
at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, but the following year,
became the first woman from her country
to win a World Championship medal in the event?
I know it.
-Melissa Bishop, from Canada?
-It is right, yes.
We like those speedy answers. We like them.
Straight in. Rhys, home or away?
-Home. Let's go home just to stay in the game.
Who scored their first four tries in the Six Nations in 2015,
with his next three coming in his side's victory
over Italy this year?
Right, oh, yeah, yeah.
Jonathan Joseph. I think you've nailed it.
Is the right answer. The England centre, well done.
Jos, over to you, home question or away?
I'd like to go away, in case I get it wrong, so...
But deep down, you want to go home
so you can stick the chest out
when you walk through the dressing room door.
"Yeah, thanks for coming, boys."
Who in February this year helped his side to an ODI series win
with two hundreds in five games,
and then went on to score over 400 runs in the IPL
for the Delhi Daredevils?
So, February this year, the ODI, who would that have been?
I think South Africa in India.
South Africa in India.
And I think... I think I've got it.
-I'm happy. Go?
Quenton de Kock?
Is the right answer, the South African wicketkeeper.
So, it's home or away, Darren?
Three points the difference, what are you going to do?
-Do you think away?
-Fancy it? Fancy it?
-We'll go away.
-Come on, come on, come on!
How are you on the Tour de France?
Steal this. We can steal this!
Name the three nations to have produced the most winners
of the Tour de France. There's a point for each.
-Eddy Merckx, where was he from?
-Name the three nations to have
produced the most winners of the Tour de France.
England's done well. England's done well.
Froome's won it twice.
Must be France.
Must be France!
USA? No. Perhaps?
-Belgium. Belgium's not a bad shout.
I think that's where Eddy... I had an Eddy Merckx...
..when I was a kid.
Eddy Merckx racer.
Irish... Spain? Spain?
No. Holland, very flat.
-I think you go Belgium, England, Italy.
No, I reckon France. No France? France, Tour de FRANCE.
It's the Tour de France.
Belgium, France and England?
Belgium, France, England.
-Yeah, let's go.
-Ooh! Not bad!
Not bad. Not bad!
-It could be Italy, you know.
-I reckon Italy.
There is a point on offer,
if they can get the third country.
I can tell you France and Belgium were right.
So Spain's up there.
Is Italy up there?
-Got a chance.
-Or have we...
Stick with those two.
-What did they say, Belgium and France?
-Shall we go with this? We're all happy with that, aren't we?
-And it's a bonus.
All right, calm down. Trying to enjoy ourselves over here.
Don't bring us down to your miserable level over there.
I think we're all going to have just a wild stab
Well done, you get the bonus point.
And now for your captain's away.
Matt, this question is for your team, and your subject is football.
-Which five goalkeepers have kept the most clean sheets
in the English Premier League?
There's a point for each one you get right,
but I'll need all five answers before I reveal if they are correct.
-Does it come across?
-Does it go over?
Cech's a good shout.
Who are the long-standing...?
-He was my first thought.
-What about Van der Sar?
Oh, keep rolling them out!
Ooh, what about Friedel?
He's been paying forever, hasn't he?
He's played for some bad teams, though.
He has had a tough time, had a tough time.
-Got too many.
Which are our certs, then?
-Reina, he was good.
So, during their stints, who were...?
-Good knowledge, team.
-You're happy with your team.
Schmeichel's got to be.
Schmeichel has to be in, surely.
-I reckon Van der Sar and Seaman.
You like Van der Sar?
Like Van der Sar. OK.
Right, we need your five.
-We're going with those five.
In no particular order.
-Cech, Seaman, Schmeichel,
Van der Sar and Shay Given.
OK. How many do you think they got right out of that?
Ooh, Rhys thinks two.
-You got two.
Cech and Seaman were right.
James was. David James was in there.
The other two you missed out, Mark Schwarzer.
-And Nigel Martyn.
-Oh, yeah, bit of Everton, as well.
Reina, Van der Sar, Schmeichel and Howard, all in the top ten.
So you were close but we needed...
But no cigar.
Exactly. But you scored two.
Opens the door.
Tuffers? Over to your team.
And your subject is basketball.
You're all right at basketball. You know your basketball.
Which five teams have been NBA champions on the most occasions?
-Since time began!
-For ever ever?
Yeah, those two are the most.
Who are the old school? Boston Celtics, old school.
Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls.
Heat, Miami Heat.
No. Recent. Erm...
New York, Knicks!
-No, not that many.
No? What, even back in the day?
This is for ever ever, Darren!
The Knicks might be in there.
The Knicks got to be in there!
They were legends, the Knicks.
Darren ain't having it.
-So you reckon one, two...
-Five, we need.
One, two, three, four, five.
I'm going to stick my neck out as captain and go New York Knicks.
Read them out, cos you wrote them all down, mate.
Go on, Darren, you go for it.
-LA Lakers, yeah.
The San Antonio Spurs.
-The New York Knicks.
-And the Chicago Bulls.
The only one that was wrong is the New York Knicks.
GASPS AND LAUGHTER
We've got the Pistons and the Jazz here.
No, it was the Golden State Warriors.
Going old school. Anyway, well done, four points, magnificent.
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
Golden State Warriors.
And what a difference that made.
End of the round, the teams are now tied, both on 19.
OK, Matt, your team are first.
-Who is having trouble with their words?
Watch the clock. It's gold for Bolt!
And again! He's done it again!
And Valdano to his left. He does... He won't need any of them.
Oh! You have to say that's magnificent!
We got a good look at him.
And I didn't know who it was.
-We had a good look at him, didn't we?
-You did, yeah.
I have no idea.
-We got a good look.
-What even sport?
I don't even know what sport. A small guy.
-What about him?
-I got that far.
-Did you start to write it?
-That's got to be it.
-You still don't know who that is, do you?
That's because I might have spelt it wrong. I'm with you.
Do you want to take that? I'm more than happy to...
-Give you some of that.
-You think it's Milos Raonic?
OK. We'll have a look and see if you are right.
I think that is an unbelievable shout.
Yes! The Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic.
-I never had a clue. Well done.
Two points there. So, Phil, over to your team.
Who is this chiming in?
We need this.
-Darren was very confident early on.
Well, again, Darren...
-Yeah. It's got to be.
Just saw him at the end. But he's just put that beard on.
Has he put that beard on?
-Has he? He's had it for a little while?
-Happy with that?
-Yeah. Let's go for it.
-James DeGale, Sue.
We'll have a look. See if it is correct.
-Yes! World champion boxer James DeGale.
Well done to both teams. One round to go and the teams are tied.
Both on 21.
-Will it be decided in the final round, the Sprint Finish?
Matt, you can put the pressure on first.
All right. Come on! I'm ready for this. I'm ready for this!
Come on! Come on!
Ready? Your time starts now.
The rugby league knockout competition.
-Yes, it is.
And, ooh, er... At the athletics, they wear these.
-Yes, they do. And, ooh...
When I'm bowling, not orthodox, but...?
Ooh, er... I'm going to make a tackle and someone runs across me
and it's, "Ooh, hold on a minute! Come on, ref!"
-Erm, penalty? Penalty?
-Yes! Good man!
Ooh! He always scores a penalty and then goes like that...
Ooh! Oh, it was out. I'll throw a second one. Oh, it's out.
Yes, it is! Ooh!
Agh! One! Pom-poms! Two!
Right at the end of the batting order...
Yes, yes! Ooh! Motor racing driver.
Good, champion, English.
And not the... Not the referee...
Not the third referee, but the next one.
Yes, you're done! You're done!
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
I can't believe that.
-There were ten on the board and you got all ten!
What a team.
So, you are now playing for a magnificent draw.
-Come on. We can do this.
-Come on, Tuffers.
Come on, come on, come on. Let's go. Come on.
Well done. Very, very good.
-Come on, Tuffers.
-You cannot pass.
I cannot pass, no.
I've got to keep going. So, I need every single one?
-OK, then. Ready?
-Time starts now.
-In football... Ooh!
-Yeah, dri.. Drib...
-We'll give it to you.
-Who does that?
Yes, he does. Yes, he does.
In your sport, it goes forward, it's a...
-No, no, it's not!
You have a scrum.
-Yep, you got it. Yep, you got it.
Yeah. Oh, right.
England versus US golf.
Erm, ooh this.
This, on ice.
-Dancing On Ice?
-No, yes. What do you do when you're doing that?
If you see some girl, she's got a lovely...
What's that? She's got a lovely...
-Yes, you got it.
Oh, if someone's at football, he's not the real manager,
-he's just looking after it for...
He's looking after it for a little time.
He does the mopping at school.
He does the mopping at school!
And opens the doors!
He's not the real manager, he's the one who's just looking after it!
And he does the mopping!
He does the mopping!
-What was it?
-He does the mopping!
-Oh! Am I still going?
-No, long gone.
-No, long gone.
He looks after it...
I mean, amazing sweeping there, Phil.
Very good sweeping.
It was still a good score.
You scored six.
But Matt's team, they are the winners tonight!
Well done. Well done.
We did well up to then.
Well done. Fantastic.
So, so close to the end.
But, anyway, a huge thank you to our guests -
to Rhys and to Darren, to Jenny and Jos.
The three of us will be back soon.
Until then, from all of us here, goodnight.
