Playing the game tonight are Ryder Cup winner...
And 200m specialist...
Who will come out on top this evening on A Question Of Sport?
Hello, and welcome to A Question Of Sport.
We've got an Englishwoman, a Scotsman, an Irishman
and a Welshman on tonight's show
but they are no joke.
They are outstanding competitors and they are sitting alongside...
er, Matt and Phil.
So let's get on with tonight's show.
We're going to start with the Picture Board.
-You are up first.
60 seconds on the clock.
-12 pictures to get through.
-Shout out when you know.
Tell Sue. I'll do the numbers. Here we go.
We will start, Sue...
..with number nine, please.
Number 10, please.
-John Stones, yeah.
Oh, no. Who's that?
-Oh, great shout. Three.
-No, no, other racing driver.
-No, other one.
-Yes, it is!
I'm terrible with Formula One.
Is it not Fernando Alonso?
No. It was Sebastian Vettel.
-Was it really?
Former Formula One world champion.
And the footballer was Eden Hazard.
It was a tricky one, absolutely.
But well done,
you scored 10 points.
It's a very good start.
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
-OK, Phil, how will you get on?
shout them out when you know them. Here we go.
One, please, Sue.
-Payne. Jared Payne.
-Good lad. Three.
Erm... Oh, Kuchar.
-Yes, yes. Nine.
10. Keep going.
Oh, big lad. Rugby.
Oh, the boxer.
-Yes, it is!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
How's your pulse rate, Tuffers?
What a score.
Full marks, well done.
End of the round, Matt is on 10.
Phil in front on 12.
OK, teams, it is Sports Action time now
and you're all playing along with this one.
Make sure you keep a note of all the stars you see.
'Oh, what a winner. What a way to win.'
'But Cassia, she's too tough.
'Cassia wins it by a half length.'
'Into the dismount.
'Full twisting double back. Beautiful landing.
'That is going to be the benchmark for gold.
'Lovely touch by Giroud.
'He's in here.
'...making a move and those three across the line very, very close.
'Perhaps it's Collins in the middle.
'Into the finishing straight.
'Jason Kenny has got this and Jason Kenny wins the gold medal.
'Coming away, look at that - the world record line.
'Can you believe it? It is gold to Scotland.'
Now he picks up and feeds... And a try!
Cap number 50, try number seven for Ireland.
OK, every square on the board
features a sport that you have just seen.
Behind each of the nine squares is a picture of a well-known sports star.
If you get a question right, you will earn a point
and it will reveal a section of the picture.
You then get a chance to guess the sports star for a bonus point.
Everyone understand? It'll all become very clear.
Matt, as you're trailing, you get to go first.
-Is Daws going first?
-Daws is going first.
-Just watch and learn. Watch and learn, OK?
Tennis? Did we know anything about the tennis?
-Tennis, I think I possibly...
-Do we know both of them?
-Yes, we do.
-Do we? Who were both of them?
-That was the other one.
-Right, let's go with that, then.
-You're going Tennis?
-OK, Goldie. All on you, Goldie.
Who was winning a point at Wimbledon?
Well, she got so far in it, didn't she?
-It was Kerber, wasn't it?
-Yeah, Angelique Kerber.
It was Angelique Kerber. Well done.
-So, you've got the middle square.
-That's why you went for the middle.
-Oh, it wasn't, but I'll take it.
-I'd like to have a...
Do you want to have a guess? Or not?
-Well, have a go with that.
No, but I can see where you're...
Yeah, I see where you get that, but, no, it isn't.
-So, Tuffers, you need to pick a sport...
-..and get the question right.
Well, erm, shall we go Rugby Union to get a bit more of his head?
-Yes, we'll go Rugby, Sue.
-You're going for Rugby Union?
Who was the try scorer for Ireland against Italy?
-It was, yes.
-Well done, Eoin.
-Well done, lad. Well done.
Did your tactic work? Let's have a look.
-Looks a bit like Russell Crowe.
Erm, any guesses, boys? Any guesses?
Bit of a beard, darkish hair.
-You fancy him?
-Going to have a guess?
-No, it isn't.
So, Daws, back to you. Which sport are you going for?
-Shall we go with one that maybe we'll know?
-Go with Golf.
-Yeah, well, that would help.
-Yeah, Golf, Golf.
On which course was Padraig Harrington
winning the Open Championship?
I wrote Birkdale. Put down Harrington - Birkdale.
-It was Royal Birkdale. Well done.
APPLAUSE DROWNS OUT SPEECH
-So, will this help you?
It's Russell Crowe!
-Let's give it a go anyway.
-Are you going to have a guess?
Er, we'll have a guess at...
Oh, from here, it really doesn't look like him now.
I don't know why I was thinking that.
He looks completely different.
-Let's go with...
-It's not that.
-No, it isn't. Over we go.
-That's not right there.
-It's worth having a guess.
It can't be the one we...
-That's more ridiculous.
-Or shall we go...?
-I think I know.
Just go with yours. Yeah, come on, let's get two points ahead again.
-Haven't said that for a while.
-I haven't seen it for a while.
-What are you going with?
Kim Collins was in action,
but in which year did he win 100m world championship gold?
-It was! Well done.
Hopefully, this is going to be a very distinctive ear.
Well, we hope so. Will it help you, though?
-Oh, course it is!
-Who is it?
That hasn't helped out. Ooh, he's got an earring.
-He did have an earring.
-That's the Brazilian coach or something?
-The Brazilian soccer coach?
-Very Kevin Costner.
-Course it is!
-Yeah. Is it?
Ooh, they've got it! Pressure's on, Tuffers.
Oh, hold on. They've got it, they've got it!
-It's got to be, hasn't it?
-But I haven't got it.
-It's got to be.
Long, dark, sort of wavy, shoulder-length hair.
Oh! How can they not get this?
-Is he winding us up here?
-Come on, get a move on!
-Oh, it could be!
-Not a bad shout.
-Come on, then. Shout it.
-Are you going to have a guess?
-Yes, we are.
-What did Christian come up with?
-It's a bit like him.
-Right, do we know the footballer?
You've got to get a question right first.
-The footballer was Griezmann. Griezmann, was it?
-Oh, yeah, it could have been. Yeah.
-Got to guess.
We will go with...
Who was scoring for France at Euro 2016?
-Is the right answer.
-We'll have a guess.
-So, we reveal the Football.
-Is it definitely? Is it definitely?
There it is. And your answer is...?
Hold on. Hold on. Just hold it there.
-Not so confident now.
-It looks like it there.
-I think so.
-Oh, no, wait. Now, here's one.
-Yeah? Go on, then.
-Go on, then.
-I've got it.
-You've got it now?
-Yeah, got it now.
-Aw, you've got it now.
-I don't know who that is.
-They don't know who it is.
-Is that a racing driver?
If you look at the eyes. Look at the eyes.
-Oh, I've got it now.
-Look, it's either that one or that one.
-I'm more certain about that.
-I still like Goldie.
Can I see your...?
-No, it's not...
-That's all right.
They're not so sure now, are they?
Well, to be honest, we weren't that sure in the first place.
I will go with Goldie.
This is Goldie's recommendation, which we are all backing.
-So, you're going to blame me.
-No, absolutely not.
We're all backing you, but we want you to get the credit.
I think, looking at the ear,
I think it's Fernando Alonso, but I might be wrong.
It is right, Goldie!
Well done! APPLAUSE
-That little tiny bit looks grey.
-That bit there.
Now the teams are tied. They're both on 14.
But now it's the pressure round. It's Home or Away.
-And, Goldie, we're coming to you first.
-Come on, Goldie!
I want to say Away, but I'm going to go Home. Is that all right?
-Every point counts, so Home is good.
-Home is good.
-OK, we'll go Home.
Who won her fourth successive European javelin medal
by winning silver in Amsterdam this year?
Yes, from Germany. Well done.
-So, moving over, Eoin, Home or Away?
Who played in six of his side's World Cup matches last year,
scoring 82 points, including two tries against England?
-It's not Dan. We don't...
-No, no, no. It's got to be Australia.
Ooh, what was the guy? Bernard Foley.
-It was, yes, the Aussie Bernard Foley.
-Stephen, Home or Away?
-I think I'm going Home.
Who, this year, in the space of two weeks,
recorded his best finish on the European Tour
and then, his best finish at a major championship,
tied fifth in The Open at Troon?
-I thought it had to be him.
-OK, so, he's not a winner?
-And finished fifth at The Open this year.
-Ah, got it.
-It could be him.
Well, it's either him or Andrew Johnston.
Andrew Johnston and him finished plus the same.
I might even write it down.
He finished second in the Scottish Open
and fifth in The Open. It is him.
-Oh, is it?
-Yeah, yeah, cos he finished second.
I'm going to get...
This is a nightmare cos I know them both well.
-Is it Tyrrell Hatton?
-Yes, it is. Well done.
-Got that one wrong.
-Did you go for Beef, did you?
-I did go for Beef, yes.
-Won at Valderrama.
Christian, Home or Away?
What do you want, boss? Home? Home or Away?
-Home. Stay Home, yeah.
-Home. We're going Home.
Which sprinter's only major medals
came at the 2010 European Championships
with bronze in both the 100m and 200m
and gold in the relay?
-100, 200 and gold in the relay.
That sounds like an Away question. That's not a Home question.
-So, who's got...?
-Gold in the relay. Right, OK, then.
Well, come on, 2010 Euros, who won gold?
-In the relay.
-In the relay.
OK, so, they're French.
-Oh, I just...
-..who...? Let's do a little...
Who would...? Who...? What relay?
Bronze in the 100m and 200m and gold in the relay.
Yeah, I can see his face.
-Don't care about his face. We're worried about his name.
What's the four in the French relay, perhaps? Does that help?
-No, that doesn't help at all.
-No? Is it...?
Do you know what? You talking right now is not helping me either,
-but I appreciate your help.
I appreciate your help there.
-Do you know what? It begins with an M.
-It's an M.
-No, no, it's not Lemaitre.
-That's not an M! Lemaitre!
It's two words. Le Maitre.
-I can see him. I know.
He's trained in America for a little while. He...
HE GROANS That's the one, yeah.
-Tuffers, you're not helping me.
-Well, I'm trying!
-You're really not helping me here.
-Are you going to have a guess?
-No, it's gone.
-No, it's not gone!
-Yes, I'm afraid it is.
-I could tell you everything about him.
He trained with John Smith. He lived in America. He came back.
He came third in the... I know he got bronze in the 100 and the 200.
-Yeah, we could have told you that.
He ran pretty quick that year. He had a very good season.
I can tell you everything, but his name has just gone.
Everything but his name. It's Martial Mbandjock.
-Mbandjock. That's it. Mbandjock.
-Does that begin with an M?
-No, it doesn't.
Yeah, it does! It does. No, it does.
-It does. It does.
-Oh, we were never going to...
-It's a silent M!
That's what I said. It's something like that.
But his first name's Martial. Martial.
-That's it. Mbandjock.
It's time for a Top Ten now and the topic is the Super Bowl.
-To give you some help,
we've enlisted the help of this NFL superstar.
This is sick. Put this to music.
-How in the world?!
-Oh, my goodness!
I mean, he is insane. How do you make that catch?
That may be the greatest catch I've ever seen in my life.
What a catch that was.
Well, let's see if Odell Beckham Jr
is as handy with the answers as he is on the field.
What's going on? Odell Beckham Jr here.
I got a question from the NFL.
Name four teams that have been in five or more Super Bowls.
I'm going to go with the Steelers, the Patriots,
the San Francisco 49ers
and the Buffalo Bills.
So, we asked Odell to name four teams
that have appeared in five or more Super Bowls.
Are his answers on the board?
Well, three of them are.
The Buffalo Bills were joint 11th on the list with four appearances,
so they don't make the cut, but he's certainly given you three of them.
You now need to take it in turns to try and name a team
that makes the top ten.
You get two fumbles each, so choose carefully.
And, Phil, as you're one point behind,
you get to go first.
-Green Bay, Sue.
Going for the Packers.
And the Packers are there. Well done.
-But we need five. Five winners.
-No, who have appeared in five or more Super Bowls.
-Oh, right, yeah.
-Get in there.
-You're going for the Cowboys.
Yes, right near the top with eight.
-Sorry, I didn't know...
I've got a feeling you'll be answering again quickly. Tuffers?
-Chicago Bears, Sue.
HE GROWLS OK, let's have a look.
-Well, well, well, well, well, well.
-Walter Payton? Walter Payton and...
-So, one fumble.
-It has to be.
-Do the Giants and...?
-All right, we need a new page.
-Well, yeah, it has to be.
-Got to be.
-Has to be.
-Got to go with the Dolphins.
-You're going the Dolphins?
-Got to go with the Dolphins.
HE SQUEAKS LIKE A DOLPHIN
Ooh! Just in.
We've got that one, as well.
But they're there. But they're there.
-You're going for the Giants. New York Giants.
Come on, it's got to be.
-Number seven on the list, well done.
Ooh, that's a good one. Cos that's recent as well.
Yeah, that's it.
-Shall we go with that one?
Yes, very good. APPLAUSE
-Two to find.
-Is this since it started?
Mm-hm. MATT LAUGHS
Well, they were the governors. They were the governors, back in the day.
You've got to get this right, because if you're wrong, you're out.
(So it's the Jets?)
Or the Raiders?
-I don't remember the Raiders ever winning it.
Black and gold, great helmet, skull and crossbones.
Black and gold, that's the Pittsburgh Steelers.
-I mean, not black and gold, black and silver.
-Knows them so well(!)
-Raiders, LA, Raiders, Marcus Allen.
Brilliant. Running back.
-No, it's Raiders. I'm happy. I'm having Raiders.
-Keep that under your hat, cos we need another one.
Cos I'm having that.
-Oh! That's a great shout as well.
-But I think Raiders.
Raiders, Raiders, Raiders, Raiders, Raiders, Raiders, Raiders.
Raiders, Raiders, Raiders, who are now Oakland Raiders.
-I'm not sure about that.
-One more to find. Who will steal the last point?
-Have you got it?
-Oh, we had that as well!
Is it the Washington Redskins?
Yes, it is! APPLAUSE
Well done. That was good work, that. Good work. Well done.
And that has made a difference. Phil is on 18, Matt in front on 20.
And, Matt, your team are up first. Who is getting creative?
-I think so.
-They're all looking at you, Goldie.
Is it Helen Glover?
Will we have a look and see if you're right?
Yes, it is, the Olympic rowing champion, Helen Glover!
-Goldie, great shout.
-How good a shout was that?
So, Phil's team, who is this well-balanced individual?
We need this, boys.
FUNKY DISCO MUSIC
Strong boy. Glasses.
-You'd think he'd have cooler flip-flops.
You'd think he'd have cooler flip-flops than those.
-Dodgy flip flops?
-They were dodgy flip-flops.
-I don't know. It could be, erm...
-No, it wouldn't be Nick Evans.
-How tall was he?
-Nick E... Could be.
-You think it was definitely rugby, you do?
Well, just he was a strong fella, weren't he?
Oh, I can't... Could be.
-Who's one of your Irish boys?
-Can I have an answer?
-Go on, try that.
Flip-flops or no flip-flops, we don't know, really,
so we're going to go Dan Carter.
OK, let's see.
Oh, it's not him!
No, it isn't. Over it goes.
OK, we're torn between James Toseland...
..and Tim Visser.
Oh, wow, OK.
I think we'll go...
I think we might just go with the Scottish winger,
who plays for Harlequins, which is just down the road from Richmond,
where that was being filmed...
and, as Stephen noted,
a fellow Scotsman, he had quite pasty skin.
-What you trying to say, like?
-We'll have a wild dart at Tim Visser.
-OK. Let's have a look.
-Funny you should say it, it is your other guess!
It's the Superbike world champion, James Toseland.
He went on it, and he sold us down the river!
-He did. He turned round, and went, "That's him."
-Eoin, you killed us there.
-Done well there.
-You bluffed them completely.
-It was a magnificent bluff.
-Oh, great shout.
So, end of that round, and Phil is on 18, Matt in front on 22.
For tonight's final round, we are On The Buzzer,
with some catching up to do.
It's one point for a correct answer,
one point away if you get it wrong, but you've got to try and catch up.
Are you ready? Here's your first one.
Middlesbrough, Hull City, and which club
were promoted to the Premier League last season?
-Yes, it was.
Which British sprinter won European 200m bronze in Amsterdam?
-Yes, it was.
Which team won both the men's and women's world Twenty20s this year?
On which course did Dustin Johnson win
his first major championship this year?
-On which course?
No? It was Oakmont Country Club.
Which French rugby club reached their first
European Champions Cup final in 2016?
Which Kenyan won world javelin gold in 2015?
The Wimbledon singles champions from 1991 were both from which country?
-Oh, good shout.
Who succeeded A P McCoy as Champion Jockey in...?
Well, a brave try,
but you kept your lead. Well done, winning by four points tonight.
A big thank you to all our guests,
to Eoin and Christian, to Goldie and Stephen.
The three of us will be back soon.
Until then, from all of us here, goodnight.
