Hello and welcome to the show.
As always, I'm joined by my captains
and, boys, are you confident tonight?
Any final words of advice, Matt?
I think I've just got to calm my side down tonight,
because they've got their eyes fixed on these two,
these two either side of Tufnell.
They're not that worried about Tuffers,
-but the two either side of him...
..they're worried about them, so I've got to calm them down a bit.
OK, and, Tuffers?
Not one for speeches, it's just a game of three halves, isn't it?
Bodes well. OK, let's get things started with the One-Minute Round.
Right, then, Matt, we are starting with your team.
There are nine points on offer. Let's see if you can get them all.
Ready? Here we go.

and the anagram...
Go on, hold on, go on.
That's seven points scored.
OK, that's not too bad. Not too bad.
-Over to your team now, Phil.

Your time starts now.

And the golfer was Padraig Harrington.
Good start. Good start.
It's pretty close. End of the opening round.
Phil is on six, Matt in front on seven.
It's Sports Action time now.
Your questions will follow,
but just try and write down as much as you can here.
Oh, and that's quick reactions from both.
Very difficult hole to get close to.
And that is fantastic.
What a great shot.
Well, much better from England now.
Lee, and back it comes and inside!
So, both got to do something.
Oh, my goodness me!
Oh, what a magnificent moment in the marvellous city!
And the crowd are roaring him on.
The line is getting ever nearer.
The runner-up in the Tour de France goes into the lead.
Mark Lewis-Francis has a chance of glory here!
Maurice Greene is coming. Mark Lewis-Francis gets it, I think!
He's going to take it.
Look at this, he's going to throw!
Oh, look at the players!
What a play.
Yates wants it back. This is to seal it.
Mark Yates caps off one of the FA Cup stories!
OK. On the board are the nine sports that you have just seen.
You're going to take it in turns to pick a sport
to answer a question on.
If you get it right, you'll earn a point
and the chance to guess the hidden picture below.
Oh, say what you see.
Phil, we are starting with you as you're trailing.
Right, what are we confident on?
You get to pick a sport.
Fancy a rugby?
It's rugby league, but I think it's...
Yeah? No? All right.
Rugby league, please, Sue.
Rugby league you're going for.
Jamie Shore was scoring a try for which side
on their way to winning the Challenge Cup?
It was, yes. Hull FC, well done.
And let's see what that reveals.
Oh! Big nose!
Whoa, it's all nose.
-Do you want to have a guess?
-No, it isn't.
Over to you, Daws.
-Golf, please, Sue.
..was in action and
he was the only member of the American team
not to lose a match in the 2016 Ryder Cup.
Who was the only member of team Europe to also remain unbeaten?
-Who do we have?
-Who was in it?
The one that springs to mind is Thomas Pieters...
-..who didn't play
on that first day
-when they got beat 4-0.
-Shall we go with that?
-Go with that.
Is the wrong answer.
You have a go at the football?
You fancy American football?
-Go on, then.
-Yes. NFL, yes, please.
Linebacker Dontari Poe was throwing a touchdown pass
for the Kansas City Chiefs against which team?
The Denver Broncos.
-Yes, it was!
Now, what does that show you?
Yeah, an ear, probably.
-Oh, no ear!
-It's a cheek.
Quite a big face.
Yeah, no, have a go.
-Go on. Have a go.
-It is not, no.
Was a good shout.
Over it goes, Matt.
Let's go with football, please.
Chelsea were suffering a giant-killing in the FA Cup
-at the hands of which team?
Yes, it was.
Very good. APPLAUSE
Let's have a look.
Yeah, go with that.
Go on, then, go with that.
-Is it Evander Holyfield?
the right answer.
And you get an extra point for the picture as well.
And the golfer, I can tell you now,
because you're going to want to know. No.
-Rafael Cabrera-Bello. Yeah.
So, end of that round,
Phil's on eight, Matt in front on nine.
The teams are out in the middle for this round
and they are playing a game of head-to-head.
The first topic is Merseyside football,
so let's see who will be doing battle first.
It is Matt taking on Sam.
OK, here are the rules.
-A bit of Everton-Liverpool, is it?
-Yeah, bring it.
Here are the rules.
If you give me a wrong answer,
repeat an answer or take too long,
your opponent will win the points.
Are you both ready?
I want you to name a team
that Everton or Liverpool
have faced in an FA Cup final since 1960,
not including each other.
-Sam, we'll let you go first.
Please don't answer one!
-It's getting tough now, isn't it?
-It is getting tough, yeah.
I don't know why this has come into my head.
I want to say, like, Leeds...United.
It is right.
Let's go with Chelsea.
Repeat, it's been said. KLAXON BLARES
I said it.
Did she say, "Chelsea"?
It was her second answer.
-So, Sam, you get the point.
The other answers you could have had were Newcastle...
Sunderland, West Brom,
West Ham and Wimbledon.
OK, the next question is on the Summer Olympics,
so who will be going for gold on this one?
It's Katherine against Phil.
Take your places.
You look so happy about this(!)
I want you to name a sport
in which Great Britain won a gold medal
at the Summer Olympics in Rio.
Name a sport at Great Britain won a gold medal in Rio.
Oh, man. Oh, no.
Katherine, you can go first.
-I can go first?
Yes, we'll accept that. Equestrian.
That's me done.
-Yeah. We'll accept that, canoeing.
-Yeah, you know, Liam Heath.
-Oh, great shout.
-Oh! Yes! Boom!
Um... Tae kwon do.
She's got one.
Look into my eyes.
Oh, of course!
Um... Oh, did we do it in that?
-Don't repeat one.
No. KLAXON BLARES
It's a wrong answer. Katherine gets the point.
Gymnastics! Oh, Max Whitlock.
Oh, the Brownlee boys!
-All right, OK, all right.
And the final category
is American sports.
Oh, I wonder who this will be between(!)
Oh, there we go. It is Michael against Adam.
It's a good one, isn't it?
This is a moment to tell your kids about, all right?
Taking on the big gun now.
Yeah, these are two of our best contestants, this could be good.
OK. I want you boys to name a team
from one of the big four sports in America
whose franchise name begins with the letter C.
Adam, you go first.
I'm going to put you on the clock, Michael.
Five, four, three, two, one...
-Did you say the Cubs?
Some are better known than others,
but the Canadians, the Canucks,
the Capitals, the Cardinals,
the Cavaliers, the Celtics,
Clippers, the Cowboys.
I've heard enough!
Sorry I had to read that out,
but anyway, the point goes to Adam,
which means, at the end of the round,
the teams are tied, both on ten.
Now a choice of Home or Away.
Katherine, coming to you first. Sorry.
Home question or away?
Whose World Championship double sculls medal record is this?
Take your time.
Check out the venues as well.
No, I know it's New Zealand.
I don't know who it is.
"And the world champions for 2015..."
-"Madame MacFarlane et..."
-ME MURMURS INCOHERENTLY
-I don't know, Sue.
OK, well, let's reveal who it is.
Zoe. My mate Zoe.
-She's not going to like me today, is she?
-Have you heard of her?
-I've heard of her!
OK. She won't watch.
No, don't worry.
Sam, coming over to you, home or away?
Who scored the first goal
in her country's Olympic final win in 2008,
was named joint World Player of the Year in 2009
and went on to win gold
and then silver at the next two Olympics?
I think, is it Maartje Paumen?
No, it isn't!
It's Naomi van As.
-Not to worry.
I didn't even know she played in 2008!
That's terrible. I'm mortified.
Do you want a home question now, Michael, after...?
Becoming quite difficult.
-It's your choice, anyway.
-I'll go home, please.
Who, in 2015, won World Championship medals
in two of the three breaststroke events,
but a year later, in Rio, failed to medal
despite reaching two finals?
-I think it's him.
-Why do you say him?
-He got a medal in that one and that one.
Could work. That's in the worlds.
-Did he medal at Rio?
-And he would have got to the final?
-Do it. Do it, come on.
It is the American!
APPLAUSE Well done!
Well worked out.
And, Adam, coming to you now.
-Home or away?
Which forward made his international debut
as a 20-year-old in 2009,
but took seven years and 49 more caps
to score his first try, doing so against South Africa at Twickenham?
Well, let's go through the England forwards.
How old's he? He's a bit older than that.
-So, he was only 20-year-old, so how old would he be now?
-I don't know.
So, 2009, he's 20.
So, it's Dan Cole.
-Dan Cole... Mako...
None of the second row was...
Oh, this is tough.
If it's 2009... Dylan Hartley.
Go on, go with your Hartley,
cos you played against him.
-That's when you...
Did you know, Dawes?
You said him as well.
Courtney Lawes, yeah.
I should watch more English rugby, then.
For the captain's challenge,
you will see a number of close-up sporting badges.
We're going to play a game of noughts and crosses with them.
There's a point for each badge and a bonus point if you win the game,
so here is the board.
And Tuffers, as you are trailing...
..you can pick first.
It's noughts and crosses,
so tactics may come into it.
Yes! Go corner.
Middle's not the best place to be in noughts and crosses...
I don't think.
-I think one of the corners is.
Yeah, but you can block them off.
-We are going to go with top right.
OK, let's have a look.
Yes, it is, well done. APPLAUSE
OK, so that's red for your team.
So, over we go for you, Dawes.
-Away you go for that.
-Top left, Ajax.
Let's have a look. Does it go blue?
It does, well done.
-Let's go there...
..and then we could sort of go there or there.
-Yeah? Are you sure about that?
Yeah, I think.
-Yeah, for sure?
-Is that the Golden State Warriors?
-In the middle?
-You're going for the middle?
No, it isn't. AUDIENCE GROANS
It's the Indiana Pacers.
The Pacers, the basketball.
Come on, let's get in there!
Oh, no, I don't know that one.
-Do we know this one?
-We've got to have a go, haven't we?
-If you get it wrong, it goes red.
It's got to be the full name,
we need the full name.
Kent. Bottom right.
Is it going to go blue
for the win? It does!
Do you know top middle, just to...?
Yes, Baltimore Ravens.
Yeah, and the one...
Rabbitohs at the bottom.
Oh, the bottom, yeah. What about the one on the middle left?
Oh, the Indians!
Boston Red Sox, yeah.
-And bottom left?
Pittsburgh Penguins. And the other one is...?
-Yes, it is!
It is Roger Federer!
Yeah, very good.
Well, that's made a big difference,
so now Phil's on 11,
Matt in front on 14.
OK, Matt, your team are going first.
Who is this carriage driver?
Come on. Come on.
It was in Bath, wasn't it?
What are you saying there?
He's getting... He's redeeming himself now.
I'm having that.
They train in Bath.
Both Katherine and I agree with you, boss.
Was it Lizzy Yarnold?
Let's have a look, see if you're right.
Got to be.
Yes, it is. The Winter Olympic champion Lizzy Yarnold.
Well done. Tuffers, this is for you.
Who is this recreating Sam Torrance's Ryder Cup magic
at the Belfry?
Now, Torrance second,
over the water at the 18th.
..to win the Ryder Cup.
I think we will see Jacklin leap about eight feet in the air.
Not a million miles away, is it?
That's an unbelievable shout!
Don't sit here.
-Just sit here for a minute.
Sit there. Sit there.
Wait to see if it's right, boss.
No, look, I'm all over that.
Was he ginger?
Is that the one of the lad who's just retired?
No, the young lad's very short.
-Oh, right, OK.
-Well, he's not...
Well, what's his name?
-His name is...
James Taylor. Yeah, but...
-It's not him.
-I reckon Joe Root's not a bad shot.
Joe Root or Bairstow.
-It's not Bairstow.
I've got nothing, you've come up with that, go on.
-Give it a go.
-This is completely random.
-Are you sure?
-Yeah, no, it's as good a shout as any.
-OK, let's see.
No, it isn't.
That was obviously not who you thought it was, Michael.
-Go on, skips.
What do you reckon?
-Was it Chris Woakes?
-Let's have a look.
-Are you right?
-Oh! He plays for Warwickshire!
Yes, it is the England cricketer
Phil stays on 11, Matt moves further ahead on 18.
Right, our final round tonight is the buzzer round
and we've seen in the past that a lot of points can change hands here.
One point for a correct answer,
one point away if you buzz in and get it wrong.
Here we go.

Tiger Woods, Louis Oosthuizen and Zach Johnson have been... WHISTLE BLOWS
You really went for it and you closed the gap,
but you had to take some risks, but well done,
but well done to Matt's team.
A big thank you to all of our guests,

Katherine, Sam and Adam.
The three of us will be back soon.
