Hello, and welcome to the show.
We have got a couple of debutantes on the show tonight.
So, captains, I wonder if you have any words of wisdom for them.
Cool, calm, collected over here.
Don't you worry about a thing, Sue, it's all under control.
-Any advice, Tuffers?
-Words of wisdom,
I usually say the first thing that comes into me head.
It sometimes work, sometimes doesn't.
OK, well, let's see who is going to win tonight.
We are going to start with a One Minute Round.
So, Matt's team, are you ready?
It's a point for each correct answer.
-And remember, everyone is in play.
Which test cricket team are nicknamed the Tigers?
-OK, the USA won five of the swimming relay events in Rio 2016.

Which three countries have won the most sailing gold medals at the Olympics?
-Ooh, no, but close. WHISTLE
You missed out on Norway.
We were making our way round there, weren't we?
Yeah, you are almost there with Finland.
Anthony Joshua defended his IBF world title against Eric Molina.
Molina! Wrote it down, that counts, doesn't it?
And the Tigers. And the Tigers?
-Bangladesh, isn't it?
And Remi Garde, the former Arsenal player, managed
-Oh, Aston Villa.
Of course it was.
But you scored five.
OK, OK, it's not bad, it's not bad.
-Just opened the door a little bit, Tuffers, OK?
Here we go.
-Who was the winning captain at the 2016 Ryder Cup?
Yes. Which rugby union team played their home internationals here?
Home internationals? New Zealand.

Who is this Super Bowl winning quarterback missing his vowels?
Yeah. Who was the top point scorer in rugby league's Four Nations tournament in 2016?
Yes. Name the three countries that have won a netball World Cup.
-Netball, who is good at netball?
Sailing, that's sailing.
It's not Cuba or someone, is it?
Oh, it's Trinidad and Tobago.
Oh, who did I say? I said Jamaica.
Yeah. And the Davis Cup winners, Argentina.
Yeah, not bad that. Good work.
But very good start for you, Phil.
End of the round, Matt is on five,
but Phil is in front on seven.
Right, teams, you are going to see a number of clips and you need
to make a note of as many sports stars as you can.
Pens at the ready. Here we go.
-Maybe in five, it's Plummer
It's going to be very close indeed.
First Olympic Games. Brilliant.
Oh, that's a good ball from Bridge...
He's got it.
Two under par for the Welshman.
And what a day she's had, gold for Great Britain in the euro class.
Doesn't she deserve it?
Keeps it alive. And now New Zealand, in with a try.
..has been hurt in the first two seconds of the final round.
A way to take her second gold.
The New Zealand crowd are applauding their boys home.
New Zealand making it two Olympic gold medals in a row.
Oh! Look at the expression of joy!
-Now, time for the questions. Matt, we are coming to you first.
Who was the swimmer winning gold in Rio?
-Yes, it was. Well done, Fran.
-Very good, very good.
Phil, over to you. Who was the footballer scoring for England?
It was. Well done.
Your next one, Matt. Who was on his way to a bronze in the ring?
I've got Danny Williams.
-Well done. Yes, it is.
-Oh, good work.
And Phil, who was scoring a try in the super league?
I know, he was in the clip, but he didn't score the try.
The try scorer was Stuart Reardon.
Oh, unlucky, mate.
-Don't worry. I know the feeling.
So, Matt, who is the golfer holing a putt at The Open?
Oh, that was Jamie Donaldson.
It was indeed. Yes.
And who was the athlete winning European gold on the track?
-Oh, what's her name? No, it's not her.
Sonia O'Sullivan. Not Murray. No, it's not Sonia...?
-Is it Sonia? Yes.
-Yes, you've got that.
-Yeah, I've got the last name.
No, I thought you had written Ronnie O'Sullivan.
Didn't see any snooker.
-No, go on, you got that.
-I don't know what the first...
Yes, it is. Well done.
Funny you should mention Ronnie, because for your last question,
you'll both be playing along, have you spotted the link?
-Snooker, cos White...
-Hendry, yes. Of course, we have.
OK, the surnames of the people you saw in action
match those of World Snooker finalists.
I'd like you to write on your tablets how many
World Championships their snooker namesakes have won in total.
Hendry is loads.
There were 12 clips,
but not everybody that their namesakes won the World Title.
Oh, that's evil.
It's the World Championship, not just at the Crucible,
just World Championships.
We're two short.
-We're short, definitely.
Cos we haven't got a couple, do we add a couple?
-How many do you think we add? Three? Want to add three?
Oh, should we add a few? Shall we add a few?
No, I don't think high.
Are you happy with your answer?
-Are you going to keep your answer before you reveal them?
-Yes, we're going to keep it.
-You're going to keep it.
-OK, let's reveal the answers.
-Well, it's a big difference, isn't there?
How did you get to 44?
Well, we thought, just times 12 by about 3 or 4.
The answer is...
26, so the point goes to Daws.
You get the point, and it makes the difference.
Now the teams are tied.
They're both on 9.
On the board, you will see a number of close-up sporting badges.
You'll take it in turns to name a badge for a point each.
Matt, we will let you pick first.
Shall we go easy or hard?
-Yeah, have you got one?
-Cos that's the British Olympic team, isn't it?
Yes, it is.
Yeah, happy with that. Go for it.
-Bottom middle, please.
That'd be the British Olympic lion.
Yes, it is.
For Team GB, it is. Well done.
Very good. Good spot.
It is Watford. Well done.
-The middle one, please. Celtics.
Yes, it is, the Boston Celtics.
Go on, nail that one. Are you sure?
I'm not sure.
You haven't done so well on the rugby.
-No, it's good, I'm better at other sports.
-Are you sure?
-It's got to be, hasn't it?
-Yes, it is.
Well done, Jon.
It gets a little bit tasty now, doesn't it?
Yeah, you've got two goes left.
We'll go for middle left, the Toronto Blue Jays.
Yes, it is. Yes.
Two more guesses left?
Yeah, you sounded very confident about one of them.
-Yeah, we did, but that's for one of them.
-Oh, that's all right.
Leicester Foxes, top middle.
It is, correct. Well done.
I think I know the top left.
-Is that the one you've got?
I think you know it.
-Shall we go with that?
-Go with it, yeah.
They're an AFL team called Geelong. Geelong?
-Are they the Wild Cats?
We're going to need the whole thing, aren't we?
You do have to have the exact name, unfortunately.
Well, because we don't know for sure
whether it's some other kind of cat,
I think we'll go with middle right, the Detroit Red Wings.
Oh, yes. Well done. Very well done.
-Got it spot-on. You need to be spot-on.
-Yes, I know.
We had Detroit Red Wings.
That looks like a Viking, but I don't think it's a Minnesota Viking.
I think it's just Geelong... It's the Aussie rules, isn't it?
-Aussie rules, isn't it? Isn't it?
-Geelong? Geelong Cats.
-I think it's just the Geelong Cats.
-Is that your answer?
Yes, I think it's just the Geelong Cats.
It is just the Geelong Cats.
You were absolutely spot-on with Minnesota Vikings, it was,
yes, the American football team.
You had them all, so well done to both teams in that round.
End of the round, they're still tied. Both on 13.
Now it's a choice of Home Or Away. Fran, coming to you.
-I'll go home, please.
Who in Rio won an Olympic freestyle individual gold medal
16 years after winning the same race in Sydney?
It's the only answer that Jon would have know known on swimming
if you'd have asked him.
I did a little bit of swotting up,
and this was the one answer I was waiting for.
-What is it, what's the answer?
-It's Anthony Ervin.
Yes, well done.
Well done, Fran. Kim, home or away?
I think I'll go home.
Who in 2012 scored in the shootout
to help her team win the Women's FA Cup
and in 2014 became the youngest player to win 100 England caps?
I'm going to go for Karen Carney.
Yes, it is. Yes. Won the Cup with Birmingham City.
Joshua, home question or away?
-I think it's going to be home.
-You happy with that?
I'll take that.
Which former WBA Heavyweight Champion regained his title in 2008
by beating John Ruiz, retained it in a win over
Evander Holyfield and later lost it to David Haye in Germany?
-Go with it.
Yes, it was Nikolai Valuev. Well done, the Russian.
-So, Jon, home or away.
-Go home, mate.
-Should I direct this towards Fran?
-Please do, yeah.
Who was the Super League's leading try scorer in 2015,
and the following year scored a try
in each of his country's three games in the Four Nations Championship?
2015, leading try scorer, scored for England in each of his tests.
I think it's Huddersfield winger Jermaine McGillvary.
Yes, it is! Well worked out, well worked out.
Well done, Jon. The pressure's off.
OK, captains, an away question for you.
-Matt, your question is on basketball.
Name the three NBA teams that are based in Texas.
Need the whole name.
-Is it Dallas Mavericks?
-Are you giving me...?
Yes, that's one.
Going for the full...
I don't know anywhere else in Dallas... in Texas.
Texas... So you've got Cleveland Cavaliers.
That's not there, is it? Golden State Warriors.
Where are they from? Golden State. It's hot.
I don't think Texas is the Golden State.
Yeah, San Antonio, Texas.
-I'm pretty sure San Antonio's in Texas.
-San Antonio Spurs.
Is the right answer!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
You got all three points, Daws.
name the three circuits to have hosted the most F1 Grands Prix.
Spa is one.
Any other ideas?
Well, us, where's ours? Silverstone?
Must be Silverstone.
Our boy, must be. British Grand Prix.
-Then one other.
-Oh! Great shout.
Bit of Monaco.
They're the three, sort of, most recognisable places.
OK, Sue - Spa, Silverstone, Monaco.
Silverstone is right, Monaco is right, Spa is not right.
That was fourth. The one you're missing, any idea?
-Two points scored.
Not bad, though, we'll take that.
And at the end of that round, Phil is on 17, Matt is in front on 18.
Matt, I'm going to ask Phil a question.
-He will then write his answer down.
-Oh, don't do this.
Your job is to try and work out his answer.
How do you get in that head?
Believe me, there's a lot of space.
So, Phil, with a little help from your team,
I want you to write down a winner
of Super League's Grand Final since 2010.
Oh. Could you write them down for me, please?
So, which one are you going to go for, Tuffers?
-He's going for Wigan.
He's going for Wigan all day long.
He's going for Wigan.
I think we'll go with that, yeah.
You reckon he'll go that? All right. I'll clear that, then.
Clear Wigan and put Wigan.
Oh, he's just changed to Leeds.
He's in. You better clear it again.
I thought I could hear something buzzing around in there.
Clear it again, start again.
Where he would deem a success here would be for him to have put Wigan
and for me to change my mind away for Wigan.
To him to have then put Wigan.
-I've still got Wigan.
-Yeah, go for Wigan.
Let's have a look.
-I said Leeds. The missus, the missus put you off.
-He drew me in.
-He drew me in.
He'd put Leeds when you'd said he'd put Wigan,
then he changed it to Wigan.
-I had Leeds!
You've done me there. Well done.
OK, role reversal now.
Matt, I'd like you to write down one of the three county cricket clubs
to end in the letters S, E, X.
-Right, OK, so we have middle.
-Who I play for.
Yes, you're going to go straight in with Middlesex.
Yeah, straight in, done.
If he's put Middlesex and double-bubbled me there,
he deserves the point, so it's got to be one of Essex and Sussex,
so I'm going to go with...
Let's have a look.
I said. I did say.
You did say you'd put it.
That's made a big difference,
because at the end of the round, Phil's on 17, Matt in front on 20.
OK, Matt, your team are up first. Watch closely.
We're looking for the person in the beanie who is jamming with Stomp.
Two, three, four...
I thought it was this person, but I put a big X across it.
Not a bad shout, that.
It's not him, though, he had tattoos there, he hasn't got it.
-He hasn't got tattoos, though.
-He has a big one of those.
That is what you have. You got it pretty early, so...
-A confident Fran.
-I think it's Michael Jamieson.
OK, let's see, are you right?
Yes, the Olympic silver medallist, Michael Jamieson.
Very good, very good.
-OK, Phil, who is this out for a drive?
MUSIC: Teen Angst by M83
Wow. Got a good look at his mooey there as well in the car.
-Rugby, no... He's quite a big chap. A big chap.
It was a small car, though.
It was a small car.
That was the only one, maybe.
Oh, OK. That's a nice shout.
Give it a go. It's not a bad shout for Man U.
That's all we've got. I don't know. Give it a go.
-Let's have a look.
-No, it isn't.
-It's a hard one.
Maybe a goalkeeper.
-That's your answer?
-Let's have a look.
No, it is the England striker Michael Owen.
He's a big boy. He's a big boy.
Owen. I thought he was... He looked quite...
-Been in the gym, been in the gym.
-It was a small car.
It's a small car.
Bad luck there. That's made a difference.
End of the round, Phil is on 17, Matt on front on 22.
We are ending tonight's show with a Sprint Finish.
Tuffers, you need a big score. Up you come.
SHOUTS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Just shout it out, just shout it out. Yeah, just shout it out.
-Your time starts now.
-Horse race that's run at Aintree...
OK, rugby team. They're like dogs, live in the forest.
Football, it's not a real one, it's just a nice little kick about.
It's called a...
Oh, in tennis, what's that?
-Yeah, it's a...
-Yes. Yes. Oh, what's that?
Oh, rugby, when you're out of play, you're in...
Em... Em... Oh, it's left and right in football, they go flying...
-Yeah, they're called wing...
In golf, Jack Nicklaus, Rory McIlroy, they're all...
Not little, it's a...
-John, he was president...
He wasn't the president, he was the Prime Minister.
Good effort, good effort. Sorry.
It was a very good effort from everyone. You scored seven.
-OK, Daws, you need three.
-All right, come on, here we go.
-Let's have this, let's have this.
-SHOUTS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Your time starts now.
OK, around the pitch there'll be people dressed up.
-No, they're dressed up...
Some of that.
Always got to the semifinals at Wimbledon, back in the day.
Great lad. Great at Question Of Sport.
Tim. Tim Henman.
Correct, correct. What's this?
Yeah, what's half of 100?
You know you've done well. You needed three, you scored five.
I'll take that.
A huge thank you to all of our guests,
to Fran and Joshua, to Kim and Jon.
The three of us will be back very soon.
Until then, from all of us here, goodnight.
