Which team will take the plaudits on A Question Of Sport?
Hello, and welcome to the show.
Before we get going, captains, have you got any last-minute words
of encouragement or advice for your team-mates?
No. I'm happy. They look amazing.
Just going sit back, relax and enjoy it, yeah?
-There you go. Simple.
What about you, Tuffers?
Don't listen to a word I say and do what Matt said.
Well, good luck to both teams.
We're going to start tonight with the Picture Board.
-And, Matt, you're up first.
12 pictures to get through and a minute to do it.
-Right, so we just shout them out if you know them, guys, yeah?
We'll start with number nine, please.
Peacock. Jamie Peacock.
Oh, that's Lizzy Yarnold.
Ooh. Ooh, gold. Gold.
-Oh, Maddie Hinch.
-Saw him in the airport yesterday. Five.
Curt Edmund. Kyle Edmund.
-Kyle Edmund, yeah.
Oh, no. It's...
The guy hits it miles. Move on. Oh, no! Two.
-Oh, good. Three.
Yes, it was! In time.
Mark Webber. Well done, Curtis.
You only missed the one. The Ryder Cup golfer. J...
But still, a very, very good score, 11. Right, Phil.
Shout 'em out, fellas, when you know them, shout 'em out.
Don't be shy. Here we go. Number one, please, Sue.
Best, Rory Best!
Oh, Liam Malone.
-Good shout. Three.
Good shout. Five.
Oh, the opening batsmen from Lancashire - Amid...Hameed.
-Yes, shout it. Yeah, seven.
-Paul Blake. Eight.
Oh, move on. Move on. Move on. Nine.
-Oh, no, Chris Woods. Oh, it was him. Carry on.
-Go on. Go on.
Too late, Tuffers. Too late.
Sadly, we had moved on, but you knew it was Chris Woods.
Yeah, the Ryder Cup golfer.
-And a bit late there for Gabriela Sabatini.
-You're not giving me Sabatini?
-No. It was after the buzzer.
That's harsh. Well done, boys.
But end of the opening round and Phil is on 8,
Matt in front on 11.
Up next, it is Sports Action
and you all need to make a note of who you see.
Easing away from the rest. It's a different class.
A different race. It's all about him against the clock.
It's surely only been a matter of time
before they were going to score.
And the supporters get the goal that they've wanted to see.
Two-goal advantage, Australia.
He knows he's got to go forward.
He's got to force the fight that the Cuban may run.
Middle of the bed. She has to keep this up.
Lovely style, lovely control.
She can't believe she's an Olympic medallist.
Westwood going through the green.
-Right, now. Listen carefully.
You will be given a question with one point on offer.
A correct answer will give you a chance to gamble
on a second question for a second point.
But if you get that one wrong then you will lose the point
that you had earned.
So, it's a bit of a gamble if you want to go forward.
So, Matt, we are coming to you first
and we're going to start with netball.
Who was scoring a goal in the Commonwealth Games final?
Correct, Pamela. Well done.
So, staying with that, you've got a point.
Or are you going to risk another question and another point?
Oh, the pressure.
-Do it. Bring it.
-Bring it! Bring it!
OK. Who was Australia's other goal scorer in the final?
Goal scorer. Only two of them can score.
Yeah, Goal Attack and Goal... Oh, no.
-I can see her in my head.
-Oh, we've got her.
-Yes, it is.
-Natalie Medhurst. Well done.
Now, Tuffers, you've got athletics.
Who was the athlete winning on the track?
That was my best friend Richard Browne.
Oh, that was an easy one for you, then, wasn't it?
Are you going to go for the other one?
Yeah, we've got to, haven't we?
-So are you going to gamble?
-Yeah, we've got to do it.
Let's see if you like this one as much, then.
Richard Browne won 100m and 200m World gold in 2015 in which city?
Correct again. Well done.
Matt, football. Who was scoring a penalty in the Premier League?
I'm under pressure now, cos they've both gone for...
-You don't have to.
-I'll go for it. Go on. Let's go.
Go on, Curt! Go on!
Who was the Sunderland goalkeeper he was scoring his penalty past?
Where were they playing?
It was Sunderland and it was the Italian one.
-What's his name?
-There were playing Sunderland?
-They were playing Sunderland.
-Oh, beg your pardon.
-The Italian keeper.
Yeah, who was the Sunderland goalkeeper?
No, it wasn't.
-Ah, Costel Pantilimon.
-Yes. Sadly, you lose the point.
Phil, it's boxing now.
Who was the British fighter in action at the Olympics?
Billy Joe Saunders.
-Are you going on or are you going to stick?
-Fancy it. Yeah, bring it.
Bring it! OK.
Which Irishman did he beat to win the WBO middleweight title
in December last year?
Yes, well done.
Matt, your final question, golf.
Who was the American in action at The Open?
Oh, my goodness.
-Who did you think?
-Right, I wrote down the Italian Manassero.
So, now I've got to think of someone who is quite tall,
dark hair, American.
Who would that be?
Let's go with Webb Simpson.
No. It was Brooks Koepka.
-Of course it was.
So, no chance to gamble.
Phil, finally for you, it's trampolining.
Oh, I know her name as well.
Who was the British trampolinist on her way to Olympic silver in Rio?
Oh, I knew this was coming up when I was watching it.
Does it begin with...?
It's not the one we were talking about, is it?
What's he doing here? What's he doing?
Turning a page or something.
-It's all on you.
-My trampoline knowledge isn't huge.
I'm going to have a stab at Turner.
What did you just say?
When you said, "What is he doing?" You said he's...
-A page turner. What did I say?
You said he's flicking a PAGE.
-It was Bryony Page.
-Bryony Page. Of course it was.
It's that say what you see. Say what you see.
Oh, thanks for the clue, Daws.
But you've been no help to me there at all.
So, end of the round, and Phil is now on 12, Matt in front on 13.
It is now time to put both captains on the spot.
We'll need you up in the middle for this one.
-Matt, we're going to start with you.
-Right, OK. Here we go.
On the board are nine sets of initials
which are the answers to nine questions.

Won back-to-back women's singles titles
at the Australian Open in 2012 and 2013.
-Um, ah... Oh!
-..was the one you missed out on.
But three points for the three squares
and another one for the line.
-So, well done.
-All right. We'll take that.
-Do you understand this game, Tuffers?
-Yes, I do.
Good. Up you come. LAUGHTER
Come on. Come on. Let's have it.
-I didn't even get the cricket one.
-OK. Let's have a look at your wall.
-When you're ready, just shout out the first letters.

I can't wait to watch the high jump next time.
Very good, Tuffers.
Oh, man. Sorry, boys. I got confused. I had a meltdown.
-I had a meltdown.
-You did well.
Your other one that you missed out on was Goal Of The Season.
Course it was.
But you got three right and a line, so, you too have scored four points.
We're still in it.
And after that eventful round, Phil has moved on to 16.
Matt is in front on 17.
Now, it's a choice of home or away.
And, Curtis, coming to you first, home or away?
It's away for a possible three points.
I'll stick at home, please.
Who this season became only the third player

-Good work, Pamela.
-We've got to stay in the game.
-Yes, I think we've got to stay in the game. I'll go home.
Who in 2011 won the 100m world T44 title and this year

Oh, I remember this, yeah, cos he fell over the line to win it.
-Yes, it is, of USA.
It is time, now, for a game of Risk And Reward.
Matt, we're going to start with your team
-and your question is on tennis.
-Happy with that?
There's a point for each correct answer but if you get one wrong,
-you will lose all your points.
Does everyone understand?
Since the introduction of the ATP World Rankings in 1973,
which five countries have had more than one
men's singles world number one?
-America has got to be in there.
-Wawrinka and Federer.
Was he number one? Has he been number one?
-I think you took it once.
-I think so.
-..Bjorn Borg, Stefan Edberg.
-Got to be.
-Got to be.
-Good. Lleyton Hewitt.
Lleyton Hewitt and...
-Must have been.
Now, remember you lose them all if you get one wrong.
Which one are you going to start with?
Well, you had that straightaway.
We're going to go with Australia.
Is correct, again.
Are we discounting Sweden or are we happy with Sweden?
-We'll go with Sweden.
Well done, yes. Three points.
All three you mentioned for Sweden
and have been world number ones.
-Good. Good work.
I like Switzerland.
Now, are you going to risk it?
You've got three points.
You could lose all three.
There's something rattling around
in this brain of mine that says...
I'm sure he took it for, like,
a week where he won something
and then, I think, Nadal was injured,
Federer was injured, Djokovic...
-All the top, sort of, had a bit of time out.
-Yes, I like it.
Go on, then. Switzerland.
He has won three Grand Slams, Wawrinka,
but never been world number one.
What were you thinking?!
He was probably first seed.
-We lost everything.
-We did, didn't we?
And the other ones?
Did you have any others that you may have gone for?
-Yes, Spain was right.
No. Russia was the other one.
So, you lost your three points.
-Try and sound concerned.
Come on, boys.
Now, how much are you prepared to gamble?
-We might just go one, actually.
-Your topic is football.
-Football, yeah, happy-ish.
OK. Remember, if you get one of these wrong, your points go.
Since 2000, which five countries have beaten
the England men's football team in the knockout stages
of a major competition?
And, as this is England, defeats on penalties do count.
Germany, with the goal, Lamps' goal that wasn't...
Yes, you're right. Spot-on. Germany.
-What about Europeans?
-Who knocked them out...?
-That was '98.
-Yeah, since 2000.
-Portugal. We've had Portugal.
-Ronaldo and Rooney thing.
-Yeah, with the wink.
-Iceland done us.
-There was Iceland.
So, that's the Euros. Is that a major?
-I think that a major.
-Yeah, it's a Euros. Iceland.
-Was that knockout stage?
What are you going to start with? Are you confident about any?
Yes. You're still going on?
-OK. Just checking.
Iceland, definitely. Iceland, Sue.
Yes. Are you going to go on or not?
Brazil. Ronaldinho, the free kick
that wasn't a free kick.
-When was it?
-Big David Seaman
-with the old ponytail.
-When was it?
Was it '02, yeah?
I think that was '02.
Are you going on?
-Brazil's a definite.
-Are you having it?
Go on. Brazil, Sue.
Hold it there. Hold it there.
Leave it there. Don't be greedy.
-Shall we go on?
-Don't be greedy.
I think we'll stick there, Sue.
Are you going to stick? What would you have gone with?
-I think it was 2000.
I can't remember what it was.
I might be wrong.
It might be '98 or something.
I can't remember.
-No, it wasn't Uruguay.
we didn't go for it, then.
-That was in the group.
We'll take that, boys. Well done.
..on penalties. But, anyway, that's a great score,
because at the end of the round, Matt's on 19.
Phil's in front now on 22.
And, Matt, your team are up first. Who is this going off-road?
MUSIC: Eyes On The Prize by Veigar Margeirsson
I've just had a little... Go on.
I don't think it is...
..but my stab would be him.
That would be my... That would be... Are you happy with that?
-Shall we go with it?
-Yeah. I reckon.
Cricket bowler Mark Wood.
-Wood? Mark Woods?
-Let's see if you're right.
-It could be him, yeah.
No, it's not. So, over it goes.
That's a great shout, though.
-We've had a little think.
-Well, you've had a think.
-That's all we've got, isn't it?
-Yeah, go for that.
It's always got. All we got.
OK. Let's see. Is it Ben?
We got a good look at him, though.
No, it's not.
It's the snooker world champion Mark Selby.
That's tough. Doesn't usually have that stubble, does he?
Doesn't normally have it, no.
No. So, sadly no points there. And, Phil, for you.
Who is taking things to the extreme?
MUSIC: Stronger by Patrick Hagenaar
That was tough again.
There was two of the...
I was thinking Lizzie Armitstead.
What about Amy Williams? Amy Williams.
Anything, any ideas? That's not a bad shout.
-Go for it, then.
-We don't think it was Jade?
-No, I don't think it was.
I think... Darker eyes.
-Sue, we're going to have a stab at Amy Williams.
OK. Let's have a look.
Come on. Be lucky.
No. So, a chance to steal.
Absolutely... Come on. Go with it. Go with it.
Go on, then, Pamela.
We're thinking KJT, Katarina Johnson-Thomas.
-OK. You're going with that.
That's all right. Let's see.
Is it Katarina?
No, it isn't.
It is the former British athlete Kelly Sotherton.
-Oh, it's never!
You both know her so well.
Oh, my goodness!
She will love it that you got that wrong. She will love it.
Oh, no way!
-Well, what a round that was.
Let's repeat the scores. Matt is on 19. Phil in front on 22.
And tonight's show is ending on the buzzer
and it's still all to play for.
We know it can change a lot cos it's one point
for a correct question, one point away if you get one wrong.
Ready? Here we go.
