Who will come out on top on A Question Of Sport?
Hello, and welcome to A Question Of Sport.
I hope the teams have saved themselves
to tackle the questions.
Will it be plain sailing tonight?
Hmm, let's dive in and start with the Picture Board.
Right then, Phil, we're going to start with you this week.
12 pictures to get through, there's a minute on the clock.
Number one, please, Sue.
-It's Mo Farah, isn't it?
-Two. Shout them out if you know them.
-Oh, no idea.
-Rapana, Jordan Rapana.
Oh, left back for AC Milan...!
Oh, I know his name, move on!
Oh, Camille Lecointre.
Oh, what's her name...?
-Charlotte Edwards, seven.
Football... Danny Rose.
-He's on his own!
Oh, Paula Radcliffe.
Oh, erm, Mason, French girl.
-No. Move on!
I know her!
You've got to give me Marcus Allen!
We'll give you Marcus Allen, on the whistle, well done.
The two you missed,
-the tennis player was Mary Pierce.
And the Italian football legend, Paolo Maldini.
Of course it was. Oh, two stinkers.
But a great start, 10 points scored. Very good.
So, Matt, over to you.
OK, we'll start with four, please.
-That's Ryan Moore.
Oh, it's a cricketer. Dhoni.
-Move on. Eight.
Oh, come on...
Oh, Ingham, Bingham... Stuart Bingham.
-No, it's... Dave?
-Well remembered, well remembered. You only missed the one.
-Did you get the cricketer?
Yes, it was, Virat Kohli, was the one we were looking for.
But great scores.
End of the opening round, Phil is on 10, Matt in front on 11.
We have a Sports Action for you now, make sure you watch the action
carefully and make a note of the stars you see.
Tottenham increase their advantage!
There he is, look, the defender on walkabout, and he's away.
There is no substitute for pace.
and walking into the end zone is Martellus Bennett for the touchdown.
First touchdown pass of the season.
New Zealand, though, all class,
and they would take an important victory.
21 years of age, in with a chance...
Has he done it?
Ooh, he does! Well done.
Powering it on now, and he's going to take gold,
from John Regis, the silver.
The world champion is now the Commonwealth champion.
Very, very good swim indeed.
Comfortable down that first 50m,
nice, decent speed, and then really brought it back.
Mmm-hmm! It is now time to tackle a crossword.
You will take it in turns to use the surnames of the people you saw
in order to complete the grid.
And, Phil, as you are one point behind, we'll allow you to go first.
Oh, is that a privilege, is it? Going first, is it?
It's supposed to be.
What is it?
-I know one of them's Fitzgerald...
-Go with that, then.
Nine across, Sue, the golfer, Fitzgerald.
Erm, no. LAUGHTER
Your go, Matt.
I think, maybe put Tuffers out of his misery? Yep.
Oh, it's Fitzpatrick!
-And where does it go?
Four down, let's see...
Yes. Well done.
Right, team, have we got one we know?
-Got to be seven down, though.
-Yeah, surname, right?
-Yeah? Who's that, was that the...?
-..New Zealand sailing lady?
Go on, then, off you go.
Aleh, seven down, A-L-E-H.
Is it correct...?
Yes, it is, well done!
The one that you think it is,
but you haven't quite got the cojones to say...
No, I mean, I don't...
-What does it start with?
-Oh, don't say that, does it really?
-Yeah. Why, is that wrong?
Well, no, because if that starts with an A,
then that one could also be that one.
Well, it's got to be.
Why don't we go with this one here?
You go with the safe one, if you want.
Let's go with six, Robertson.
You're going for Robertson...
Yes, Nathan Robertson, Olympic silver medallist.
-Does that help?
-No, no help whatsoever!
Go on, then, go on, stick him in there.
-You know what it is, eh?
Yeah, two down, Carney.
Two down, Carney?
Yes, it is, well done.
-What you going for?
-Go on, then. Go on, then! GO ON, THEN!
-Oh, I don't believe we're doing this!
Toby Alderweireld, is it?
Let's have a look...
It is Toby Alderweireld.
Alderweireld, well done, the Belgian footballer.
-I think we go that one, yeah?
Frankie Fredericks. It was definitely Frankie Fredericks.
-Nine across, Frankie Fredericks.
Frankie Fredericks, indeed. APPLAUSE
Good work, good work.
-So, we'll have him.
-You're going for Stan...?
-For three down.
Yes, it is.
APPLAUSE There it is, well done.
OK, and leave him with those two.
We're struggling here, any ideas?
-I'm trying to think of... NFL...
-There it is.
-Oh, he's got it.
You're a right BUNCH of idiots, you lot.
Is that a clue?
What a BUNCH of idiots, eh?
Bunch of idiots?
Oh, I hate it when he gives me a clue!
And you still can't get it.
I can't stand it.
-Group, yeah, group.
-It might be, five down, group.
-Yes, why not do that?
Five down, Sue...
The famous NFL quarterback...
Erm, no. Over to you, Dawes?
Which one are you going for?
-Oh, we're going to go with Hannah.
One down, Seebohm.
Going for Emily Seebohm...
Yes, it is. Well done.
And, Dawes... Tell him.
-No points, but tell him.
Famous TV show, American show in the '70s... '70s, '80s?
-No, comedy, about a family.
The Something Bunch?
Tom Brady was what we were looking for.
That has made a difference, end of the round, Phil is on 13,
Matt in front on 16.
Choice of Home Or Away now.
Chris, coming to you first. Home question?
Yeah. Home, please.
Who won his third Premier League winner's medal last season,
having won the title previously in 2005 and 2006?
So it was Leicester, last year.
Just trying to think who won it last year.
I'm from Leicester as well!
Where do the players usually...
What position do they play when they're, again, slightly older?
Midfield, centre back.
Well, this is what I thought.
It's not spelt like that, but it is him!
He's bailed me out, Robert Huth.
Is the right answer, yes, the Leicester defender.
Won previously with Chelsea, well done.
Robbie, ooh, now, what are you going to do? Home or away?
-Got to go for it.
-We've had a team talk...
-..I'm going to go away. We're going to attack.
Well, seeing you did so well with the NFL, we're going back there now.
There are four NFL teams whose first and second names both begin
with the same letter.
Name three of them for a point each.
Ooh, got it!
Yes, great shout.
Jacksonville Jags, yeah.
Is there a Texans?
-Are there the Texans? No? Texas Texans, no?
Oh, it's in there somewhere.
Denver Broncos... Oh!
-You get a point for each one anyway, so...
Yeah, go on, Seattle Seahawks, Jacksonville Jaguars...
So, two points scored, that's good.
But you can steal a bonus if you get one of the other teams, Matt?
Haven't got a clue.
No answer, OK. Two you missed.
-You know you were saying the Texas Tigers, or something?
The Tennessee Titans was one.
And...? Now you'll kick yourselves.
Oh, that is evil!
But, two points, anyway. Two points, that makes a difference.
So, Hannah, coming to you now. Home or away?
OK. We are talking 400m individual medley for you.
Who came fifth at the Commonwealths in 2014,
won bronze at the World Championships a year later,
and then reached her first Olympic final in Rio?
-I know she's Canadian, I'm just trying to remember her name.
-Have you got her?
-I can... Yeah.
I'm just trying to think of the name! Grr!
Go through major cities in America.
Erm... Overholt. Her last name's Overholt.
-That's all we need.
Yes. Emily Overholt.
Well done. Over to another Hannah.
Hannah, home or away?
-We're going to go home.
Which European sailor, by the age of 22,
has finished 20th and ninth at the Olympic Games,
and won medals at the last four World Championships,
including two golds in 2014 and 2015?
-Take your time. Got it?
Yes, it was, of Austria, well done.
OK, captains, I should think you're going to need some help from
your team-mates here, because this game requires some lateral thinking.
Good luck, Robbie and Hannah.
You must try and identify the sporting phrases that you see.
There is a point for each one you get right,
but if you buzz in and get it wrong, your team are frozen out. OK?
Fingers on the buzzers, remember,
you're frozen out if you get it wrong.
Here's your first one.
-Buzz in, you've got to buzz in.
Is the right answer, yes.
Just have to buzz in. Here's another.
GLASS BOTTLES CLINKING
OK, here's the next one.
-Come on, say what you see.
-Game of two halves.
And here's your last one.
TENNIS MATCH, SHOES SQUEAKING
10 issues...? Tennis...
Well done, well guessed.
End of the round, Phil has moved on to 18, Matt's in front on 20.
So, Matt, your team are first, who's this exploring the city?
MUSIC: Too Young by Phoenix
Just missed the Snapchat bit at the end, the selfie! I wasn't looking.
That's a great shout.
-You wrote down something very quickly there, Hannah.
In a heartbeat.
-And we wrote nothing.
So, Hannah, it's all on you.
Let's see if you're right.
Well done, the world champion swimmer Kerri-Anne Payne.
-OK, Phil, who is this wannabe Ian Botham?
MUSIC: Snake Hips by Shawn Thomas and Camille Hodge Jr
I reckon it's a rugby boy.
What did you make of his technique?
Well, he's better than me, but that's not saying much.
Rugby boy? No.
-He's quite tall. Is he tall?
-Darren's tall, yeah.
It wasn't Zebo, was it?
-Nah. OK, we ain't got much, have we?
-Not a clue.
Darren Campbell, Sue.
Going for Darren. Let's see.
No, it wasn't.
Over to Dawes.
Have you got a shortlist?
Yeah, we have. Yeah, yeah. It's...
We've got boxers.
We've got one.
-And I haven't got that. You go with that.
-Go with it!
-It's never in a million years...
But they would have to cover it,
-they would have to put the hat on quick...
-Sue said it, yeah...
Anthony Joshua, but I don't think it's him.
-That's what you're going for?
-Let's have a look.
No. It's someone you know well, Matt.
Good mate of yours...
It is the former Premier League striker Dion Dublin!
-Good friend of yours, Dawes?
-He might be.
-He might be!
-I played with him.
You played with him? You played with him?!
Many years ago, yeah.
He'll love that, that you didn't get him.
He'll love it.
So, end of that round, Phil's still on 18,
but Matt's further in front on 22.
This week, we have involved the Question Of Sport viewers,
including members of our audience here tonight.
Teams, you will need to guess the answers they gave
to a number of questions.
Matt, we're going first with you.
We asked everyone to name an Olympic sport that uses a ball.
So, which answers do you think were the most popular?
Olympic ball sport.
-Volleyball, basketball, got them all there.
-Just because he won it, didn't he? Justin... Justin Rose.
-Rosey won it.
What do you reckon?
I think volleyball.
I'd go volleyball instead of basketball.
Volleyball, football and tennis. Is that what you're saying?
Or the golf.
Somewhere in there!
-Can we have four?
-You like golf.
-Well, I just think, it's just gone in, it was the first...
I like golf. We'll go with golf...
Are we keeping football?
-We're keeping football.
And tennis or basketball?
-And tennis, OK.
Let's start, with number three,
what was the third-most popular answer?
Well done, well done.
Came in at the death.
So you're looking for golf and football.
Number two, second-most popular answer.
-Not even mentioned.
-Not even mentioned, terrible. Sorry, girls.
-And number one, the most popular answer...
OK. Phil, over to your team.
What were you lot thinking?!
-All right, Phil, for your team...
-Yes, what we got?

Who's the lady, 400m runner?
-It was quite a while ago.
-Yeah, that's a while ago.
-Golfers, Greg Norman.
Don Bradman's got to be in there.
What three are you going with?
Right, OK - swimmer Thorpe, Shane Warne,
and then do you want the ledge of ledge, Bradman
or a Jason Day, up-to-date, golf number one?
-I'm with Greg Norman.
-Or Greg Norman.
-So your three are Warne, Thorpe and Norman, yeah?
-Didn't even get into Cash!
-There we go.
Bradman, got to be.
Let's have a look. Number one...
No, it's Warney.
Well done. Two points scored.
Which means, at the end of the round, Phil is on 20,
Matt still on front on 23.
Our final round tonight is Sprint Finish, which means, teams,
you've got get to get on your captain's wavelength.
Tuffers, as you're trailing, you need to go first.
And you need a big score. Come on, up you come.
Are you ready? Your time starts now.
Right, when you're sent off...
-Yes, you do, you do.
-What am I playing on?
-Pool table, snooker table!
-No, the other one, littler.
Yes, you said it.
-In your game, you cross the line, it's a...?
And if it's not, it's a...?
-No try, yeah.
-Oh, Henley, Henley...?
Sir, a golfer, English golfer.
Won about five or six majors. Sir...?
Yes! Well done.
-What are these?
-And it's baseball...?
-White Sox, Red Sox.
-No, the other one.
-White Sox, White Sox.
White Sox. Where did the All Blacks just come back from?
-Yes, that's it, yep.
The big sailing thing, Ben Ainslie won it all!
Yeah, America's Cup, you just ran out of time.
But you scored six points, so three ahead.
I think we're scuppered.
Up you come, Dawes.
Come on, we can do this!
Come on, here we go!
Four you need.
Are you ready? Your time starts now.
German, tennis player.
And if you win the Masters, golf, you win a...?
-Jacket, green jacket.
-You do, you do!
Erm... Oh, your sport, and you're doing that, but with your feet...
-Dolphin kick, dolphin kick!
They're a football team that play in the capital of Italy...?
I don't use these, you do...?
-No, in your...?
-No, it's very small and pointy.
Hair clip? Hair bobble...?
-And if I put it in a balloon...?
Not the Olympics, but the other two Years?
No mention of Formula 1 with the hairpin?
That would have been better, wouldn't it?
Anyway, Dawes, you needed four to win, you scored six,
so well done, Matt's team's the winner.
Well done to Matt's team, commiserations to Phil's team.
A big thank you to all of our guests, to Robbie and Hannah,
to Chris and Hannah.
The three of us will be back soon, until then,
from all of us here, good night.
