Hello and welcome to the show.
Two is the magic number tonight,
as we have a double Olympic champion,
a two-time Super Bowl winner,
a double world champion,
and a swimmer with two Olympic medals from Rio.
And, leading them from the front, these two. It's the captains. Oh!
And to start things off, it is the picture board.

I know the cricketer so well, as well, what is his name? Big hitting!
Plays for the IPL. Do you want me to give you his initials? Yeah, go on.
Kieron Pollard! Oh! Sorry, team. The cyclist?
And the other one you missed out on, the cyclist.
The Olympic cycling champion Philip Hines.
The only one you didn't mention. He was my next answer, as well. Oh!
It's all right.
But it was still a very good start.
Just one in it at the end of the round.
Phil is on 10, Matt in front on 11. APPLAUSE
it sports action now and, for this one, you'll need to pay close
attention to the stars you see and where the action is taking place.
COMMENTATOR: Anthony Watson on the outside. Watson for England!
Is that the try that seals the Grand Slam?
Lee Young-pyo with the cross. Oh, yes!
And it's the man that missed the penalty who scores the winner!
What a story!
And this is an absolutely brilliant swim.
Rebecca Adlington of Great Britain.
World champion of the women's 800 metres freestyle.
What a superb swim that was.
Chance! And out. Caught by Adam Lyth at slip.
Because Argentina can start the celebrations.
And score there with a slam!
One of the biggest ever upsets.
Away he goes, he continues on his way towards another gold medal.
Watch the clock. This time, I do not believe it!
A fantastic five gold medals.
The receiver is out. Smith in trouble.
Takes off again! Ten, five, touchdown!
The theme of this is which sport?
So, Matt, you're first.
Which sport that you saw took place in the same country
as Michael Chang's only Grand Slam title victory?
Michael Chang. What did he win? US Open. Did he win his home...
Home, or did he... French. French.
I'm sort of edging towards the French.
We believe in you, man. Clay. We believe in you. Do you? Yeah.
You're foolish to believe in me. You know that.
Er... How about the rugby?
You're going with the rugby.
It's the right answer? Oh!
See, I told you. I told you.
OK, Phil, this one's for your team.
Which sport took place in the same country in which Kyren Wilson
won his first ever ranking title?
Doesn't go on offer, so... And your swimming's in there?
Right, well, listen.
I'm just going to let you two carry on
because I'm having a cracking time.
I can't even get the cricketer right.
Kyren Wilson, you reckon, Won in Shanghai. Won in Shanghai.
Your swimming? Yeah. So that was 2011 World Championships in Shanghai.
Yeah. Swimming. Swimming. Swimming. Swimming, yes!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Matt, which sport took place in the same country
that topped the taekwondo medal table in Rio 2016?
Who won the... So, the country was Korea.
It was Korea? Came top in taekwondo. Korea topped the table.
Oh, yeah, we saw them. There was... There was...
There was a football clip. Wasn't there? Yeah, yeah, yeah, there was.
So, football clip. Yeah.
And we thought it may have been Japan, but, I think we'll...
We'll hazard a guess it might be Korea. Shall we go with that?
Football. Well done, Jade. Yes.
Football taking place in South Korea,
beating Italy in the 2002 World Cup.
Give me the sport that you think took place
in the same country as the 2010 Ryder Cup.
Well, it's either America or...
Where is it this year? Alternates, doesn't it?
It's over in America this year.
I have a feeling it was in Wales. Yes! At Celtic Manor! Yeah.
Celtic Manor. Was that 2010? Celtic Manor. So that's Wales. Welsh.
What else did we have on there? We had the cricket. Where was that?
I thought that was at Lord's. That could be in Wales.
I reckon it's the cricket.
Yeah. Got to be the cricket. Which is in Cardiff.
Cardiff's in Wales.
Cricket, Sue. Yes!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Well done. Brilliant. Another one.
Which sport took place in the country from which Moritz Boehringer,
the wide receiver, was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings this year.
He's from Germany. Is he?! Is he? Which sport?
Tennis? No. Tennis, we know where that was.
I'm pretty sure it's this one. It has to be.
That wasn't. It could be somewhere like...
Could be Berlin, couldn't it?
Berlin, Munich. They do those Diamond League events, don't they?
Athletics with Usain Bolt. Yes, it was. World Championships. Well done.
OK, Phil. See what you make of this one.
Which of the sports took place in the same country that hosted
the opening stage of the 2012 Tour de France.
I think the Tour de France starts in Belgium.
Yorkshire! It started in Yorkshire.
So, you start the cycling in Belgium.
And, I think, the Davis Cup
was played, it's the final.
Just got to say Davis Cup. Davis Cup. Yeah. Tennis, Sue. Well done.
Yes, it is.
Well done, at the end of the round,
Phil is on 13. Matt's still in front on 14.
It's time to face The Wall now, captains.
Matt, you are first to take on the challenge. Out you come.
Right, come on then. Move over, Jade.
OK, Daws. What have you got for us, Sue?
In front of you are nine letters.
Ooh! It's like Countdown. I will read out...
I will read out a question and you must pick the two letters
that you think are the initials of the correct answer
and run back and press your buzzer. Right.
The letters must be touching.
You have to answer a maximum of four questions in your time
and you need to answer each one correctly before you move on.
Here is your first one.
Who was England's most capped player at Euro 2016? Wayne Rooney, maybe.
Who was the US Ryder Cup captain in 1999?
Oh! Er... I know him.
Think, Mark James? No? No.
US. US Ryder Cup captain. 1999.
Er, er... Cur... Er... Aaargh!
I don't know anybody.
No? '99? Come on, Matt. '99. '99. US Ryder Cup captain. '99.
Oh! I know... I've got his face.
Moustache. What's his name? Pavin.
It has to be touching. Curtis Strange!
BUZZER No. It's not. It has to be touching.
You're just going to say no. BUZZER
You're just going to say no! Keep going! Try TW! TW! TW?
Oh, I don't want to do it. I don't want to do this game.
Hal Sutton? No! You're going to kick yourself.
B, S, C?
Ben... Ben Crenshaw. Ben Crenshaw! Ben Crenshaw?
Yes! But you do get your one point for Wayne Rooney.
So, well done.
Looking forward to this one? Not really. Here you come.
Let's have a go. Come on! Come on! Let's do it!
That looks a bit lonely out there, Daws. Looked a bit lonely.
Here's your wall, Tuffers. Ready for your first question? Yes! OK.
Which British sprinter narrowly missed out on bronze
behind Christophe Lemaitre in Rio?
Adam Gemili. AG. AJ? AG! AG!
That's a great shout.
BUZZER Is correct.
Who managed Spurs in their first season in the Champions League in 2010?
2010? HR? Harry Redknapp. HR. Harry Redknapp. HR top. HR! Left.
BUZZER Yes. Yes!
Who won the Formula One World Championship in 1988, '90, and '91?
'88? '90 and '91. Graham Hill?
Graham Hill? Wrong. BUZZER
What was here? Take them off first before you press any.
What was the question?
Who won the Formula One World Championship in '88, '90, '91?
Oh, Prost. Alain... No, it's not.
Having a meltdown.
No! Time's up.
Ayrton Senna. AS.
It was Ayrton Senna. We've done all right. You've done all right.
How many did we get?
And after that high-scoring round the teams are tied, both on 15.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Now for the guests, it's the choice of
a Home question or an Away question. Osi, coming to you first.
Home question or Away question?
Home is good. Let's go home. Home. Mm-hm.
Who, last season, became the first rookie in history to run for
at least 125 yards in four straight games to help him finish as
the NFL's third-highest rusher? Mm hm.
Yeah... Do you want it again? No. No.
LAUGHTER Confident. I've got it.
We like that.
I love that. "Mm. Yeah." Yeah.
It was Todd Gurley.
Get in there.
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
Mark, Home or Away? Home, please. Home.
Who, this year, went beyond the quarterfinal stages of
a ranking event for the first time in his career on his way to
winning the Indian Open in July?
That would be Anthony McGill.
It would, yes. From Scotland. Very quick.
JAZZ: I thought you were taking notes.
And, Jade, before we put you under the pressure of home or away, just
talk a little bit about Rio and the pressure, because you won in London.
Was it different?
Did you feel the pressure of being defending champion?
Yeah, like I knew I'd have so much pressure going in but I don't
think I realised how much pressure until it was actually on the day.
Like, I actually cried before my semifinal because, yes,
I'd beat that girl so many times before, but I was thinking,
"If it's the first time I don't beat in the Olympics, it would be horrible".
Then I thought, "Come on, I'm in the Olympic Games, just go for it",
and sorted myself out then.
It was brilliant and everyone absolutely thrilled for you.
Ladies and gentlemen, Olympic Champion, Jade Jones.
So now, pressure's on here. Home question or Away? Home. Home.
Kimia Alizadeh became the first woman from which country to win an
Olympic women's taekwondo medal?
Come on! Get in there.
No worries there, girl.
And, Jazz, coming to you, two silver medals.
What an achievement that is because you were in
a race with the one and only Katie Ledecky which is so tough.
Yeah, she's an incredible competitor.
She won from the 200 event up to the 800 event
so she was an incredible athlete to race against but to get my
hand on the second twice behind such an incredible athlete is
a pretty good feeling.
The reaction back home, has it taken you by surprise?
We were in a bit of a bubble in Rio and since we've been home we've
had so much support from everyone and everyone's been
so glued to the Olympics and watching us all. And getting up at
'two in the morning to watch me swim is really nice.
'I'm just thankful for everyone that watched us and for all their'
support because it's just amazing to come back to that support.
We want to thank them, don't we?
Thanks to Jazz Carlin for a wonderful moment.
Are you going Home or Away?
I'm more nervous for this than I was for my race in Rio. No.
I got my Home question wrong last time but... Oh, did you?
I feel like I'm in better form this time. Surely. Go Home then.
Yeah, we'll go home. All right.
Who won her first World Championship medal in 2015 and then
reached both the 400 and 800 metres freestyle finals in Rio
finishing seventh and fifth respectively?
Right. Take your time. There's a lot of information there.
Jessica Ashwood from Australia.
Perfect, yes. Well done. Yes!
I am going to read out a question, captains,
and because I am so kind, I will even give you...
I'll even give you the answer. Nice.
You must then decide to either stick with that answer or twist.
But if you twist then you have to accept the next answer regardless.
So, this is for you, Matt. Right.
Identify an event in the men's decathlon at the Olympic Games.
Here is your first one. It's the hammer.
Do you want to stick with hammer or twist?
Is it in the decathlon or not? My instinct was no.
That was my first thought, was no.
That was your instinct? We didn't like that did we? No.
We don't like it, Sue. So you're going to twist?
You're right. OK.
But were your right to make that decision? Here's your second answer.
Pole vault. Are you happy with that one? Yeah. Daley.
Daley did the big reverse flip-flap. OK, let's see. Yeah, we like that.
Yes, well done, the pole vault. We'll take that.
Did you get it? You got it. You got it.
Did you have it, Tuffers? Yes. Yes. OK.
Phil's team, identify the badge of last season's beaten
Champions League finalists.
Is this it?
What's the little fella having a wazz up the tree?
Is it a bear?
I think it's a bear trying to get the apples out of the tree.
It's definitely white and red though, isn't it, Atletico? Yeah.
But it might not be that.
And the bear might be a sign of their nickname.
Atletico have that Latin motto, don't they? Oh, shut up!
They do. Shut up!
Bearus Wazzus Treeus.
Cockius Legius Bunkeus.
That's a tough one.
Are you sticking or are you going to twist? What do you reckon?
Do you fancy a twist?
I think you should answer, Phil, cos you ain't been involved yet.
Get yourself involved. I'm going to stick.
He's going to stick.
OK, let's see the second badge.
That's... That's not it. That's not it. There's a castle. That's not it.
Well, let's see if you're right.
The first badge was Atletico Madrid and the one on the right?
Well done to both teams in that round.
The teams are tied, both on 18.
It's Head To Head now and, Matt, your team are up first.
On the left, Jason Kenny is about to enter the final lap of the
keirin in Rio. Right.
On the right the Green Bay Packers are about to snap the ball. Right.
What happens first?
Does Jason Kenny cross the line or do the Packers score a touchdown?
Osi... Mm-hm. I need you now to go through the play... Yeah.
..every movement... Mm-hm. ..every little twitch. Mm-hm.
Do you know is it a famous play? I remember this play. Do you? I do.
I'm just... I'm just good like that.
Right, OK, Jason Kenny, on a flying lap, I mean it's got to be eight,
nine seconds... Before he crossed the line.
I think we've got about eight or nine seconds.
The final lap of the keirin. Yeah, a flying lap. Yeah.
That play definitely took about eight or nine seconds. Did it? Talk me through it now. Yeah.
He snapped the ball, the pressure came, he escaped the pressure,
ran around from a little bit, then threw it all the way into the
end zone for a touchdown. A Hail Mary pass, that's what we call it.
Hail Mary. Right. So how far has he thrown it there? He's thrown it miles.
Yeah, he threw it about 60 yards.
It took about seven, eight seconds. OK.
All right. So... From how much faffing around did...? Did he do back there?
Did he do? How much avoidance. Was it...?
Was it as much as that? No. Not quite, but close. Close.
Wasn't as good as that. Yeah.
If you're saying that it took this guy ten seconds to cross this
line then I would say the right first. Do you?
Yeah, if it took ten seconds for the guy to cross the line.
I think it's round and about ten seconds for a speedy lap.
I'd go with Aaron Rodgers' Hail Mary pass. OK. Are we happy with that?
With him. We're with Osi.
You're going... OK. Going with the football. Going with the footie. All right. Let's see. Are you right?
Throw that ball. Off we go.
Duh-duh-duh. Duh-duh-duh-duh. Duh-duh-duh-duh. Oh!
There's a lot of faffing going on there. Go on, son! Oh!
Oh, no! Oh!
Oh! I can see it. It's about a yard away.
He threw it 70 yards, not 60!
That was the only difference.
You had it all perfect. Oh, my goodness. Told you.
So close. So close. Bad luck. Bad luck.
This one is for your team.
On the left, Louis Oosthuizen is on the tee at the Masters. On the right,
the men's 50 metre freestyle from Rio is about to begin.
What happens first?
Does Louis' ball go in the hole or does Anthony Ervin win the race?
21 seconds you've jotted down there for the 50 metres. Roughly. 21 seconds.
How many yards is it? MARK: 181.
181. So what's that? 6-iron.
MATT: You're laying up, are you?
MARK: I've got to think of this. It depends.
It depends where it lands on the green.
If it lands miles away from the hole it's got to bounce and then
still go around. Yes. 21 seconds is quite a long time.
If it bounces once and goes in it's going to be...
No, I think it did a little bit of a run here. Did it?
Which one do you fancy? How long did you see the swimming was? 21 seconds.
Boom, straight, first thing Jazz put down. What are you going for?
We are going to go for that the... the...golf ball goes in first.
Golf ball goes in first? Yes. OK, let's have a look.
Come on. Come on, Louis.
Set. Go, Louis.
MARK: He's not even hit it yet.
He has hit it. Go on. MATT: Come on, faster!
It's got a long way to go.
MATT: It's not even halfway. Go on. Go on.
MATT: It's not even halfway.
Oh, he's hit the other ball. MATT: It's in, though.
It's going to go in! Go in! Yes!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Which means, at the end of the round, Matt is on 18,
Phil now in front on 20.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
We are ending the show on the buzzer tonight
and there are still plenty of points up for grabs.
Fingers at the ready.
Here's your first one.
Portugal defeated which British team on the way to winning Euro 2016?
Which Hungarian swimmer won three gold medals and a silver in Rio?
Yes. Denver Broncos and which other team have played in two of the last
three Super Bowls?
Yes. Who was the only British man to win a taekwondo medal in Rio?
Yes. Got in there too fast. Sorry.
Who was the last player to complete snooker's Triple Crown?
Go on. No.
Yes, it was. This summer who scored 171
as England set the highest ever...?
Yes. In which North American city do the Raptors Blue Jays
and Maple Leaves...? BELL
Yes. Since Ivan Lendl, who is the only Czech player to have
reached the men's singles...? BELL
Raonic. No. It's not Raonic, it's Cilic.
Dustin Johnson and which other American golfer won...?
WHISTLE Jimmy Walker.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
You got Jimmy Walker in time.
Anyway, so, so close, but well done to Phil's team.
Huge thank you to our guests,
to Jade and Osi, to Mark and Jazz.
The three of us will be back very soon. Until then, goodbye.
