Doing battle this week are Olympic cycling bronze medallist
Katy Marchant, Ryder Cup golfer Chris Wood,
rowing Olympic champion Moe Sbihi,
and golf's US Open runner-up Shane Lowry.
Hello and welcome.
Tonight, we have a star-studded line-up for you,
both teams will be going for gold,
so let's get in the swing of things with the Picture Board.
Matt, your team are up first,
you've got 60 seconds on the clock to get through as many as you can.
OK, we'll start with number nine, please, Sue.
-Oh, Finau? Fin...
-Oh, great shout. 12.
Michael Atherton. Seven.
-Brianne Thiesen Eaton.
-Good shout. One.
-Who's that, 23?
Move on, move on, don't know that, move on. Two.
-Oh, get in there! Three.
-Went to school with him. Four.
-That's it, you're done.
-Only one you missed was the Icelandic midfielder...
-No, Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Sigurdsson. But, wow, 11 scored.
Pressure's on, Tuffers.
-Yes, that was decent.
-Are you ready? It was.
-Here we go, number one, please, Sue.
-Yes. And seven.
-Um... Dwayne Wade.
-I have no idea.
-Oh, Batty. Yes. Nine.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
What a team. Get in there. 12! Yes!
-As we know, it's never won in the first round.
End of the opening round, Matt is on 11, Phil's team
in front on 12.
OK, we keep the pressure on, teams. It is Sports Action.
Make a note of who you see.
Referee checks, it must be a try for England.
Coming home to take the Commonwealth title.
Paula Schnurr takes the silver.
4:08.87 the time.
Here they come, up to the line, take a look at that finishing time,
the concluding metres, Great Britain win the Olympic title
and the gold medal and another world record.
Everybody's saving a single.
Finds the gap!
He goes to a 100 for the ages.
A hard-core 100 from the Australian captain.
And it's Great Britain from Australia, and on the far side,
we're looking now at France, coming up for the bronze.
But through, gold-medal, Great Britain, wonderfully done!
Seemed to go through his immediate opponent.
Good strike, lovely goal!
-Now, listen carefully.
2016 was a great year for all of our guests,
and two events in particular - the Rio Olympics and golf's US Open.
Each of the sports stars you saw in action have a namesake
that competed either in Rio for Team GB,
at the US Open, in both events, or in neither.
All will become clear.
We are coming to you first, though, Matt, and your question is,
who was the cyclist in action on the track?
And you saw her celebrating in the crowd afterwards.
Is the right answer, yes.
So, now, was there a King who performed in Rio,
the US Open, in both or neither?
Well, that ticks that box.
What about the golf?
Don't ring any bells at all. No.
Think we're just going to go with that, aren't we?
Go for it.
-Going for it, Katy?
Yeah, Kitty King in the equestrian?
So you're going for Olympics?
It's the right answer, yes.
Fantastic, well done. I would never got that in a million years.
Kitty King, and also Dominic King, part of Team GB.
-OK, Phil, your question.
Who was the rower, winning Olympic gold in Beijing?
That was Tom James.
It was Tom James, well done.
Any Jameses who play golf?
No, not this year, I don't think.
-I'm looking for clues off Woody.
Don't look at him, he'll sell you down the river.
-No, definitely not.
-Any other Jameses?
-I think there was one in Rio.
But I might be wrong.
-It's in Team GB.
Sue, we're going to go...
-Team GB. Rio.
Well done. Becky James.
Question for you, Matt, who was the cricketer scoring 100?
Michael Clarke, was it? Michael Clarke.
Is spot on, yes, very good, well done.
So was there a Clarke that performed in Rio,
the US Open, both or neither?
-US Open, was he?
-That's a trick question.
I think he didn't play, because he said he had
-so much Ryder Cup on his mind, his game was no good.
So I think, going to the US Open...
-It wasn't long before the Ryder Cup was it?
-June? Three months.
All right, OK. Any other Clarkes?
Erm, I feel that there was, what was the clay shooting guy,
-what was his name?
I don't know how... We are so here! So here!
Katy, I'm worried for you.
-Didn't he do that?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-Yeah, was that his name?
-I hope so.
-I think so, yeah!
-We're thinking the same thing.
-I think we are.
-I think we should go for that one.
OK. We've got a tick with the Olympics.
It would be obvious for us to go, "Oh, Darren Clarke, Darren Clarke."
Was there a sneaky little qualifier in there at Clarke?
I'm tempted to say both.
-Yeah. I'm happy to go with that, yeah.
-You happy with both?
-I think so!
I think the we're quite happy with both, Susan.
Chris should have gone with his gut there, because he didn't, no.
Just Olympics, we were looking for.
Joe Clarke and Lawrence Clarke.
So you don't get the bonus point there.
Phil, who was the rugby player scoring a try?
Rugby, Jonathan Joseph. Is it Jonathan Joseph?
-No, it wasn't.
It was, Anthony Watson. Well done.
So, what are you going to go for?
Watson is the surname, competing in which event?
Yeah, well, Bubba Watson played the US Open.
Bubba Watson played the US Open.
How many people were in the Olympics, walking round?
-Team GB was over 300 people.
-Was there a Watson? Oh, Heather Watson?
-Did she play?
-She did play.
It's just come in to me! Yes, yes!
Confidence, definitely, it is.
Well done, two points there, makes a difference.
Matt is on 14, Phil in front on 16.
Captains, it's now time to put you on the spot.
We need you up in the middle, Matt, you're going first.
Here we go, here we go!
OK, Matt. On the board are nine sets of initials
that are answers to nine questions.
For each square you get right, you will earn a point.
If you complete a line, you'll get a bonus point.
You've got 45 seconds to get through as many as you can.
When you're ready, give me your first set of initials.
English League Cup ties can go to this if
a game is deadlocked after 90 minutes.
Extra time... and penalties.
-Stephen Hendry won the 1999 Crucible final to become this.
The snooker... The...
Oh, world champion.
Seven-time world champion.
Winning a leg with only three trips to the oche.
Frenchman won this motorsport title every year since 2004?
-Frenchman won this motorsport title...
-World rally cross.
-World Rally Championship?
Scored 30... WHISTLE
So, it's four points scored, four correct, and one line,
five points is your total, five points.
-Happy about this?
-Yes, let's do it, come on, come on.
-OK, there's your board, Tuffers.
Where are you going to start?
Mercedes had at least one car here at the start of every Formula 1...
Front row of the grid.
-Roger Bannister became the first person...
-Harry Kane scored his first Premier League goal at this ground?
West Ham...? Erm...
-What is it?
-The ground. If not, move on.
-No. Move on.
-What are you doing?!
-Winning a horse race by the smallest of margins.
-By a nose.
When you are dismissed in cricket without facing a ball?
-Without facing a ball?
Without facing a ball?!
-Golden duck! Donald Duck!
-Did you say Donald Duck?
-Yeah, run out.
-Run out without facing a ball?
That's called a diamond duck, is it?
Spurs! Top left.
White Hart Lane.
Sit down, Tuffers, take a break.
I can't stand it, I can't stand it!
White Hart Lane!
So, Tuffers, you got three correct.
But no line, so three points scored, which means,
at the end of the round, the teams are tied, they're both on 19.
And it can change here, because it's Home Or Away.
And, Chris, we're coming to you first.
Pressure of a home question,
or do you want to go away for a possible three points?
-I'll go home, I think.
Who, in 2016, doubled his total number of European Tour victories
to eight, and, in November,
entered the world top ten for the first time?
Go for it.
Well done, it is the Swedish golfer, well done.
Moe, over to you, home question or away?
-Can I go home, please?
Between 2012 and 2016,
which country's coxless fours won medals at three World Championships
and both Olympic Games, none which were gold?
So they won a medal at 2016, but it wasn't gold,
-in the coxless fours?
-Yeah, and 2012 Olympics,
and in three World Championships between 2012 and 2016.
Well done, four silvers and a bronze.
-Katy, home question or away?
-I think I'll go home.
Who won two golds, a silver and a bronze
at the 2015 European Championships, and the following year,
won her country's only Olympic gold on the track in the keirin?
Olympic gold in keirin?
Yeah, it's the Netherlands girl.
Yeah, I'm going to go Elis Ligtlee.
Yes, it is, well done.
Shane, are you going to go home our brave a possible three points away?
-I'm going to go away.
My golf knowledge is not great, so...
How's your tennis?
Who are at the three youngest
Wimbledon men's singles champions since 1975?
-I actually have no idea.
-Got to be a chance with Borgy.
-Crikey, late '70s, early '80s.
-Who was good, who was winning them?
-McEnroe! Johnny Mac!
-Was he not...?
McEnroe was young.
Yeah, not a bad shout. I've got a feeling it was a Swede, though.
Was it Edberg? Stefan Edberg? Edberg.
I think he was very young.
Or did he just look very young?
Right, well, I think Borg, Becker, take a plump for someone else.
-You're after saying Edberg so much, say it.
-Yeah, I fancy Edberg.
-But do you reckon Borg?
-Yeah, I do, definitely. Got to be.
-So you're going with...?
We're going with, Bjorn Borg, Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg.
-Ooh, not bad!
Possible one-point steal if you get the third one?
-Agassi, you liked?
-Ooh, Lleyton Hewitt...
I like the look on his face there.
-The look of disappointment?
Just for that reason, I think we go Hewitt.
And your choice is...?
-I'm tempted, I like this one.
Yeah? Let's go Lleyton Hewitt.
Going Lleyton Hewitt...
-I reckon you're right.
-Yeah, I do too.
Right answer, yes. Bonus point.
We have got a top ten for you now, and this week,
the topic is football.
You'll take it in turns to name the ten English players
to have scored the most goals in the Premier League.
You need to be careful though,
because if you give me a wrong answer, you'll be frozen out,
and the other team will be able to continue.
So, Phil, we will let you...
Top of the list. Well done.
-There he is.
There's no life here, so be careful.
There he is, number three, Andrew Cole.
Is Frank there?
Yes, number four.
If Lampard's there, Rooney has to be there, doesn't he?
He must be there. He's scored 200, though.
-Frank Lampard scored 200. Rooney must be there.
Is number two.
-What are you doing to me?
It's White Hart Lane all over again!
-Stevie G, number 10.
Got to be Wrighty.
AUDIENCE GROANS No, you're out.
So, Dawes, you can keep going until you get a wrong answer.
How's Wrighty not in there?
-It's the Premier League.
-Oh, stop it, right now.
-Take it away, Mr Wood.
-Put it there, my friend.
Still a possible three. You can keep going.
Does Becks come into the equation? No, not enough goals?
Played a long time.
-I'd like to say...
-You prefer Scholes, do you?
-I quite like this. He scores a lot of goals.
No. It wasn't. It wasn't.
-Yes, number eight.
-Oh, my goodness me!
And number six...
-Yes, still going.
So, at the end of that round, Phil has moved onto 25,
but Matt's team in front on 26.
It's now time for What Happened Next?
Matt, your team are first, you've got football action.
Former Swansea striker, Lee Trundle, is about to take a penalty.
What happened next?
So, here are your options...
Was it A - as Trundle strikes his penalty, a tree on the side of
the pitch is blown over by the wind and falls between him and the goal?
Was it B - Trundle pretends to replace the ball on the
penalty spot, but as he goes to pick it up, he stabs the ball
into the net with his left foot, past a surprised goalkeeper?
Or was it C - Trundle thunders the ball against the post,
it ricochets onto the other post and comes back out to the striker,
who then slams it against the bar?
So, was it...?
-I think his run-up is a little bit...
-I think B.
Yeah, his run-up's a little bit like he's going to try something.
All right. I mean, he doesn't look like
he's going to thunderbolt it, to be fair.
So let's get rid of C.
And you like this cheeky thing?
You like the tree falling over more than hitting the post?
Listen, I'm more than happy to go with that.
He looks like he's up to something.
So I'm not focusing on the trees.
Easily a tree could come down there.
There is one supporter in the distance.
So he might get lucky.
I'm happy to go with that. The cheeky...
Shall we go with that one? B?
You're going the cheeky penalty? OK, let's have a look.
I like that.
Very nice, very nice!
It was a cheeky little penalty in a charity game. Very nice.
OK, well done.
Phil, your team are going to the USA for this one, and some NFL action.
What happened next?
And then did you click on the Lawrence Of Arabia attachment...?
-So, here are your options.
Was it A...? I've got three options for you.
A - a sound technician runs across the front of the tunnel,
just as the players run out and gets knocked to the floor by one
-of the biggest guys on the team?
Was it B - the players have been led to the wrong tunnel,
and appear at the other end of the stadium without any of the
fans noticing, with fireworks going off at the other end.
Or was it C - the smoke machines are turned on as the players run out,
but will not turn off, and the stadium fills with smoke
and the game has to be delayed?
So was it...?
We can see the sound man running across.
That would be a long time for the smoke to fill that stadium up,
we'd be here half an hour watching that. It's got to be...
-Yeah, got to be A.
-So you're going for the sound man floored, are you?
-Yes, please, Sue.
-OK, this is what happened next.
-Who is that?
-Bernie Beaudry, our mic guy.
With a trip to Lenscrafters tomorrow, bloodied nose....
Broke his glasses, but he carried on!
Well done, and well done to both teams in that round.
Still very, very close - Phil on 27, Matt just in front on 28.
So, all to play for in this final round, which is the Sprint Finish.
-So, Phil, you're up first, as you're trailing.
-Come on, boys.
-Come on, Tuffers!
Come on! Come on!
Are you ready? Your time starts now.
The footballer who scores the most goals in the World Cup gets the...
-Yeah. Oh, you get it. What's that?
You pick your nose... What is it? It's two over.
-Yes, yes, yes.
-Oh, not sevens...
Oh, you come up to the... Play darts on it.
-Oh, rugby, in Ireland, where do they play the rugby?
-Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.
-No, the other one! What am I doing?
What's the big thing that runs through London you go rowing on?
Yes. Erm, oh, er, great golfer. Aussie.
-Not... Who's number one.
-No, the other one.
No, the other one.
There's... How many...? Oh, the Australian golfer!
-Er, Jason Day.
-Yes, yes, yes!
You got it! You got it. APPLAUSE
-Not bad. Not bad.
-Was that OK?
-You scored seven! That's good. That's good.
Seven to win.
-Good effort, that. That's a good challenge.
-Seven's the magic number.
-That's what you need.
Got to be on my best behaviour now. Come on.
Come on. Both of you. Seven.
-OK, it's your first one. Your time starts now.
Er, OK, basketball. This very famous pose.
Er, oh, it's the cycling. It's one of your events, in the omnium.
-It's... If you win a game of football, you score three...
Oh, not the four balls, but the other one in the Ryder Cup.
Nottingham play cricket at...
-Yes, they do!
Er, oh, it's the female... Female...
The female event with lots of them.
-Yes! With lots, yes.
Move on, move on, move on, move on.
Oh, cyclist, cyclist, yellow jersey.
-Yes! It's, er... Oh, the fella, Donald.
What do they say in the crowd when he wins?
Donald the golfer!
That was in! That was in!
-On the line. On the button!
-That was in!
No! He didn't "oo". He didn't say Luuuuuuuuke. He went, "Luuuu".
You've got to finish the whole word.
-You've got to finish the whole word.
-Back you go, back you go.
-Did they give us that?
-You needed seven.
seven! You're the winners! APPLAUSE
What a great game it was from start to finish,
and well done to Matt's team.
A huge thank you to all of our guests, though,
to Katy and Chris, to Moe and Shane. The three of us will be back soon.
Until then, from all of us here, goodnight.
