Hello, and welcome to the show.
Tonight, we are delighted to be joined by sporting guests
who just ooze class and experience.
And Matt and Phil are here too.
Let's get things started with the Picture Board.
Matt, we're going to start with your team.
You've got 12 pictures to get through.
Anyone can shout out the answer and the time will start when you
give me your first number.
We'll start with number four, please.
Oh! Is that Justin Timberlake?
-Oh, the name of the guy?
All right, thanks. Three.
-I can't believe it.
-Ooh! Ooh! That looks like Nick Knight.
-I don't know. Move on.
-Oh, Eoin Morgan.
Oh, well done.
Move on. Who's that? Seven. Back-rower.
-Vermerva... Vinmerva... Flip the merva.... Groves.
You did all that on your own. I didn't have a clue.
-It really wasn't Sharapova?
We were very kind and gave you Eoin Morgan.
The tennis player wasn't Sharapova, it was Coco Vandeweghe.
-And the Irish flanker was CJ Stander.
So, a magnificent 5 points to start.
Not really, Sue. Not really. Not really.
-Go on. Positive, boys. He here we go.
-When you're ready.
-Yes, one, please, Sue.
Oh, Ben Ainslie. Two.
-Five. Great shout.
Oh, oh, Pujara. Six.
Oh! Don't know.
-Voss. No. Move on.
Eight. Great shout.
-Jaz Carlin. Hansall...
-Yes, it is. Yes!
-Yes, ten. Come on!
-Lamb, Pat Lambie.
We've got a lead. We've got a lead!
You've got a massive leave lead.
You only passed on the one.
The NFL legend Brett Favre.
-You said, "Fa...fa...fa...fa..."
That's a great start for Phil's team.
Matt is on 5, but Phil's in front on 11!
Right, we've got a top ten for you now.
And this week, we are combining both the Summer and Winter Olympics.
You are going to take it in turns to name the ten countries from
outside Europe... LAUGHTER
..to have won the most combined medals
from the Summer and Winter Olympics.
Each team has one life, so use it wisely.
Matt, we are to start with you.
-OK. So we're talking sort of...US? US?
-Go for it.
Who are you going to start with? You going to get started on the board?
Outside of Europe, so let's start with US.
OK, you are going with USA?
-The top it is.
-There we go. We'll take it.
-Is it there?
-Is in Europe?
Of course it is. Well done.
All right, all right.
That's a good shout.
-Why don't we go that one?
-Yes, this one. Go on, go with that one.
-OK, we're going to go Canada.
Number five, well done.
-Do that next.
-Yes, yes. Yes, that one next.
-So, that's your one life gone.
The amount of Winter Olympic medals that Jamaica won was...
I can't believe they weren't in the top three, to be fair.
I thought that they would have won a lot in the summer.
-OK, yeah, yeah.
-Well, it might be a disaster.
-Well, they have a bunch of Summers.
-Should we do that?
-Yes, number three. Well done.
-Oh, what a good one.
Got to be Japan.
-You are going for Japan.
Come on, don't let me down.
Now it gets interesting. You've still got a life left, Dawes.
-Let's go for the one you circled.
-Yeah, that one.
-Cos you seemed pretty positive.
-That's what I think.
-OK, we're going with New Zealand.
-Going with New Zealand. Is it there?
Yes! Number nine.
You are four points in front.
-I haven't got a clue, donnae look at me.
Well, what are you writing down, then?
-Just names of countries.
I think...Korea is not a bad shout.
Cos they do a lot of shooting and they do a lot of skiing.
-Come on, boys, that one or that one?
-Need an answer.
-Go on, then.
-You are going for South Korea.
-Please. Got to be.
-Yes, I like that, I like that.
-I like that one. That one.
-And you've got a life as well.
-What are you going with?
-Go for it.
-Go on, you go.
-Nicolas going for it. South Africa.
Going for South Africa.
It was 11th, actually. Just missed out.
Right, which one do you fancy out of that?
Are we missing a blatant one somewhere?
Used to be indecisive, now we're not so sure.
-What are you going for?
-Is it on the list.
-Yes, it is.
We sort of now realised where Tuffers was going with Jamaica.
Cos he was just thinking, "Well, they've just won
"so many summer medal that they are going to be on the list."
-So, on Tuffers' theory...
-I've got a theory!
..we're going to go with Kenya.
You are going with Kenya.
So, is Kenya on the board?
-Ooh! Well done!
Sneaked in Number Ten.
-Well, we've only got one country left.
-Well, that's your answer.
-It makes it easy, then.
-Let's hear your answer, then.
You are going for Argentina.
Matt, you can have one go.
Oh, OK, we will go with...
India. Is India right?
-No, it isn't. The one we were looking for is Cuba.
-Their boxing and that.
So, end of the round, Matt has moved on to 10,
but Phil is still way in front on 15.
It is now time for What Happened Next?
And, Matt, you're up first.
You've got football league action from England. What happened next?
So, here are your options.
A - the Peterborough defender Michael Bostwick
hits a first-time shot,
which deflects off referee Darren Bond and loops into the net.
B - Bostwick passes the ball to who he thinks is a team-mate,
but is actually a steward in a luminous jacket.
Or was it, C - a supermarket carrier bag floats onto the pitch
and the ball rolls into it just as the defender goes to kick it?
Sounds quite good. I quite like that one.
So, is it, A - deflection off the ref,
B - passes to the steward,
or C - ball rolls into the bag?
I love the idea of passing to a steward.
-Well, look at how bright the yellow is on the pitch, anyway.
-I think that would be...
-You like that?
-Yeah, I like that one.
My original thought was the shot deflecting,
but they are very yellow. I mean, it's 50-50.
-What are you going with, Dawes?
I think we're slightly split on the decision.
However, I am JUST leaning more towards the steward.
So we're going to go with passing to a steward...
-In a luminous jacket.
-..in a luminous jacket.
-Oh, can we see the game and see the motion of...?
All right. Let's see what happened next.
That was brilliant. I love it.
Two points, that earned you.
Right, Phil, it's your turn now and you've got motorcycling action.
Sam Lowes is about to round a corner in Malaysia,
but what happened next?
Here are your options. A - Lowes gets back on his bike,
but in his confusion,
he completes a whole lap the wrong way round the track.
Was it B - after getting back on his bike, he starts to ride down
the back straight until his front wheel falls off due to the crash.
Or was it C - he wheels his bike off the gravel, jumps back on,
but is knocked straight back off again by another rider
coming around the corner?
So, was it A - rides the wrong way,
B - wheel falls off, or C - knocked off bike again?
Ultimately, you are going one way around a track,
you know you're always supposed to be turning right.
If suddenly he's always turning left, he's going to notice
-he's going the wrong way.
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-I reckon you are right.
Hell of a crash.
Yeah, so gets back on and as he's driving down, front wheel comes off.
-Didn't have much of a crash.
Didn't have much of a crash for the front wheel to come off.
So, that leaves us with...
Knocked off his bike by another rider coming down...
What, so he gets back up... He's had a bad day at the office.
-Somebody unseats him.
-Bad day at the office.
So, he gets back on... "Phew, that's all right,
"I'm back in the race and wallop."
In fairness to him, he's looking the right way, isn't he?
-Yeah, he's looking to go there.
-He's looking to go left, isn't he?
So he gets back on, someone else comes in and shoves him off.
-Happy with that?
-Happy with that?
-Knocked off his bike again? Let's see.
-Knocked off his bike again, Sue.
-This is what happened next.
No, it's not.
He does go the wrong way.
Oh! And he gets knocked out by another...
Quite a bit of everything there, Sue. There's a bit of everything.
-And he's still trying to get back on it again, didn't he?
-Yes, he did!
-Well, well done to both teams in that round.
Matt is now on 12, Phil, in front, on 17.
Well, this week, each of our guests will have
a home question linked to a clip of them in action, but they will
have a choice of a question for one point or harder one for two points.
Annabel, we are coming to you first,
but before you make your decision, here is your clip.
Oh, my gosh.
-'And that useful lob wins the match for her.
'And that's certainly a feather in her cap.
'The junior title to Annabel Croft.'
-Winning Junior Wimbledon there. Now, Annabel.
It all looked to have been in slow motion, isn't it? Anyway.
So, you'll have a question linked to the action, but do you want
to go for one point or looking at the scores, brave it and go for two?
I mean, this is just an awful, awful game for Phil to lose.
He was six ahead...
Right, so you want to gamble a bit, don't you?
-Oh, I mean, this...
-You are ready to gamble.
This could be one of the greatest wins ever.
You might need to help me on this comeback.
I want you to be a part of the greatest win ever on
-A Question Of Sport.
-Well, let's go for it, then. Should we go for it?
-I think you can help me on this one. OK, right.
OK, so we are going to go for a bit of extra. We will gamble a bit.
So, we saw you winning Junior Wimbledon in 1984.
Since then, three women have won it and gone on to be world number one.
-You need to name two.
-So, we just need two of them.
-For two points.
-I think Hingis is one of them.
-Well, I'm not sure she...
-She did win the Juniors.
-So, Hingis, you like.
-This is really tricky.
You'll get there, keep thinking.
-So, do I lose both points if I don't get...?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Right, we have to keep thinking.
Keep thinking of names who have been world number one.
World number one.
Maybe it is Sally...
What about Helena Sukova?
Mauresmo hasn't... Oh! Mauresmo. Maybe Mauresmo.
-I like that.
-I have a feeling it might be a French...
-She won the Juniors.
I think she may have won the Juniors. I think she did.
She went to world number one?
Yes, because she was coaching Andy Murray
and we all used to say she was former world number one.
-Um...should we go with Hingis and...?
Ooh! Over it.
-I hope this is right or should I keep going?
Well, if you've got two answers, give...
I only need two of the three.
This is really tricky, but I think,
Martina Hingis and Amelie Mauresmo.
-two points! Yes!
-That was so hard.
-That was tricky.
That's why it was an away question.
The other one you could have got was Caroline Wozniacki.
OK, Scott, or should I say Leon...
Yeah. You could say either, Sue.
I know, because your first name is...
Is that a trick question?
-No, Scott, Leon Scott Quinnell. This is your question.
Your action is from Five Nations. Do you remember this?
Missed the ball. But Quinnell picks up and breaks out.
Scott Quinnell tries to get the feed inside
and he could get there himself, he goes and gets...
The try is given.
Hey! Fair enough.
The truth is I don't.
That was... That was...
Oh, 22 years ago,
or two stone ago, whichever you...
It wasn't funny being on the receiving end of that.
Oh, thank you very much.
-So are you going for...
-I'm blushing, I'm blushing now.
Are you going for one point or two points?
-What do you think, Skips?
I genuinely can't remember last week, so...
Go for the one. Let's go for the one.
-You're going for one, are you?
-One point. Right.
That was you scoring your first try for Wales,
but can you name another try scorer in that match?
Correct. Well done.
Nicolas, coming to you, you are in action at the Open.
Second shot, Colsaerts on the second.
-Get in. Yes!
-Where was that?
-That was amazing!
-That was at Lytham.
Brilliant. So now, do you want a one-point question
or a two-point question?
-I think we've got to go... Got to go with two.
-You're going for two?
That was the 2012 Open Championship,
in which you finished tied for seventh.
Two other European golfers also finished in the top seven.
Name them both.
-Take your time.
-There is one I know.
-In 2012, top seven.
-Because he tied with me.
-He was playing with Tiger Woods on the Saturday.
-Who won it that year?
-Who won at Lytham?
-It's Adam Scott, Ernie Els...
-Ernie Els. Scotty.
-This is one of them where you know!
You know you're going to know it as well.
I mean, you can always bet on Rory.
-But maybe that was...
-I mean, that one here...
-I mean, that's a great shout.
-Who have you got?
-That one I know because I tied.
-Have you got a definite one?
We've got a definite one. What's your definite one, this one?
-Yeah, tell Sue.
That's Thorbjorn Olesen.
-Doesn't look good, that, does it?
-Well, he was 11th, then, one shot behind us.
No. Tied ninth, he was.
No, the two we were looking for, because you can't...
were tied fifth, it was Luke Donald and Graeme McDowell.
McDowell, never thought of him.
So, no points there.
-here you are in action first.
He leaves it. Osman!
Curls away from Hart and nestles into the net.
What a strike from Leon Osman.
-Look at that.
-What a strike indeed.
Right, now, what are you going to do? Are you going to try for one...
-One point, please, Sue.
-One point, please, Sue!
Don't want to test myself. I probably will test myself.
That was one of the three goals you scored against Manchester City
during your Premier League career, but there are three clubs
against whom you have scored more than that. Name one.
-Can you remember them?
-I'm just trying.
-You just need the one, one for your point.
Aston Villa is right.
Yes, well done.
Did you have another one written down?
-Yeah, West Ham and West Brom.
OK, captains, you're not getting away with it.
You've both got two-point questions,
-so Matt, you're first, take a look at this.
-What are you doing?
It's black and white!
And Dawson is through.
Dawson for the try lines.
A park for Lawrence Dallaglio. England strike back.
Tough game, that one.
You were setting up Lawrence Dallaglio for a try against Ireland.
-Allowing Martin Johnson to lift the Six Nations trophy in 2003.
-In your 77 appearances for England,
Johnson was captain on the most occasions, 29 times.
Which two players are next on the list?
-This is hard, isn't it?
-Who was your captain?
Lawrence is going to have to be one.
-I've got to go with Lawrence Dallaglio.
-I'll give you that, yeah.
But you need both. You need two answers.
Come on, Matt, you can do this.
So who are you going to go for?
I think it was after Johnno, so Lawrence was before. After Johnno...
And I'll go with...
-Martin Corrie and Lawrence Dallaglio...
-..are your answers.
Well done! You've got two points.
Go on, Cozza! Come on, Coz!
Lawrence Dallaglio with 17, Martin Corrie with nine.
There was also another name you could have had.
-But you didn't want to say you, did you?
-Yeah, tied with Martin Corrie on nine. Tuffers...
We're all looking forward to this. Here you are in action.
He's gone. Well, well, well.
-Lovely dance there.
You were dismissing Mark Waugh and he was actually the Australian
batsman you dismissed on the most occasions - seven times, in fact.
-Go one, Tuffers!
-Did you know that?
-Yes, I did, actually.
OK, which two Aussies are next on that list?
Oh, you got this.
Take your time.
-Right, next two Aussies...
-Who did you sledge?
Well, yeah, they usually gave me a bit, actually.
Could be Healy, Ian Healy.
Um, Ian Healy... Who else is there?
David Boon. Did I get him out?
He was not out, actually, he was out, he nicked it at Melbourne.
-Jack caught it, not out.
-He weren't out, he was out out.
No, you're talking about sledging and I went to the umpire,
couldn't have been anything else apart from a little nick,
away from the body and everything,
he just looked at me and went, "Not out, Tuffers. Heh-heh-heh."
OK, who are you going to go with?
I'm going to go with, um...
Who did I get out?
Need an answer, Tuffers.
Ian Healy, David Boon.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
No way! No way!
-It's in there somewhere, Tuffers.
-I'm impressed with myself there.
Not as much as the audience, huh?
-Yeah. Ian Healy five, David Boon four times.
Well done. End of the round.
Oof! Phil's still in front.
Matt's on 16, Phil on 21.
Tonight's show is ending on the buzzer.
There's one point for a correct answer
but one point away if you buzz in and get it wrong,
and I can only accept it from the person who does buzz in.
-Fastest finger first. Everyone ready?
-Here we go.
In which sport did Ireland's Katie Taylor win on her...
Yes. Who in 2016 became the first Asian golfer
to win a World Golf Championship event?
Who were the last English team to win the UEFA champions league?
Name the Spanish tennis player who won her first Grand Slam title
The British and Irish Lions toured which country in 1993?
In which city do the Indians, the Cavaliers and the Browns all play...
Which Premier League football ground
staged Rugby League's Four Nations final in November?
No? It was Anfield.
Jade Clarke, Rachel Shaw and Tamsin Greenway
have represented England in which sport?
The champion in world hurdles are racers at which national hunt?
Champion and world hurdles?
-Are in Cheltenham.
Nico Rosberg clinched his first Formula One world championship
at which Grand Prix? BELL RINGS
Who beat England to win their second successive Cricket World Cup
No! West Indies!
FINAL WHISTLE BLOWS
How long did that round go on for?
-Thank you for your love.
-Leave me alone! Leave me alone.
West Indies. Right, yeah.
-I feel a little bit guilty.
-A little bit guilty.
I didn't press the button so I wouldn't lose anything.
So, Matt, remind me, what was the score after the first round?
I'm not sure but I think we were like, six behind.
How have they done that?
That's, like, from the penthouse to the outhouse
in the space of 24 and a half minutes!
Anyway, what a comeback it was and well done to Matt's team.
A big thank you to all of our guests, so commiserations
to Leon and Scott. Well done to Annabel and Nicolas.
The three of us will be back soon. Until then, goodbye.
Sue Barker hosts the lighthearted sports quiz with Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell. Joining them are Welsh rugby great Scott Quinnell, Premier League footballer Leon Osman, former British number one tennis star Annabel Croft and Ryder Cup-winning golfer Nicolas Colsaerts.
