Hello and welcome to a new series of A Question Of Sport.
Tonight Matt is joined by rugby league star Ashton Sims
and sprint cyclist Jess Varnish.
And on Phil's team are world champion boxer Tony Bellew
and Ryder Cup golfer Andy Sullivan.
Let us start things off with the picture board.
And Matt, you're up first. So there is your board.
OK. And you'll start with your first number.
OK, we'll start with number five, please!
It's Gareth Bale. Yes. Number six.
Oh that is, Hulkenberg?
Nope. Oh, it's not? It's... Oh, it's, move on!
Oh, I know that as well, don't I? Seven.
Ellie Simmonds. Yes. Eight.
Oh, I should know that.
Stephanie Morton? Yes.
Go on, then? Emily Kay? Yes. Nice. Three.
Ding Junhui. Yes. Two.
Mahe Fonua? Yes. One.
Hoffman, Charlie Hoffman. Yes. Nine.
Tadhg Furlong. Yep. Ten.
Who is that? Oh...
Chris Gayle. Chris Gayle! Good shout! 12.
James Graham. Oh! Yeah!
You pretty much just....
Very good. The only one you missed out on was the Danish Formula 1
driver Kevin Magnussen.
But 11 scored.
Well done! Absolutely delighted for you.
Here we go. When you're ready. Number one, please, Sue.
Oh, Quek. Sam Quek. Yes.
Brian Harman. Yes.
Three, great shout.
That is, oh, Malan.
Jordan Pickford. Yes. Five.
Marco Huck. Yes. Six.
Konta. No. Watson.
Nope. No, move on.
Oh, I know that. Seven.
Which one? The one in the middle? Yeah.
Bottas? No. Raikonnen. Yes!
Yes, great shout! Eight!
Pablo Larrazabal. Yes. Oh! Nine.
Oh, it's dark! Sergey Kovalev.
Oh, what's her name, Fragapane?
No. Biles? No.
Oh, the other one. Nope.
Move on! Move on! OK.
Go ahead. Divock Origi.
Oh, Warburton. Sam Warburton. Yes!
Oh, it's not bad, lads. Not bad.
You missed out on the gymnast,
the Olympic bronze medallist Amy Tinkler.
Tinkler. Oh, that's the one.
And the tennis player, Grand Slam champion Victoria Azarenka.
Not so sure about that one.
Anyway, great start from both teams.
Phil is on 10, Matt at front on 11.
It is time for a Sports Action now.
Make sure you watch very carefully.
Here we go.
Now on the far side, oh!
That is tremendous!
Lemaitre wins it.
The first two absolutely clear.
And up towards the line, gold for Great Britain!
They've smashed the world record!
One away from his hat-trick.
Alastair Cook's fifth Test match 100.
There it is.
There it is.
There could've been a wall in the way and that wouldn't have
stopped Jamie here.
Now, I'm going to read out three
statements related to the action that you
have just seen. And you must pick out which one is false.
You need to identify the false one.
So, Matt, you can go first.
Thank you. And you have a football.
Your statements are... The game was being played at the London Stadium.
Oh, missed it.
West Ham were playing Watford.
Michael Antonio assisted the goal.
So which one do you think is the false...
False one. ..false statement.
They were playing in yellow.
Yeah. And Watford do play in yellow.
So... So that could be true.
What are we saying, it was at the London Stadium? Well...
It felt a little bit more enclosed than the London Stadium.
It's the Olympic Stadium
and it always feels the fans are quite far away, away.
So I may be inclined to say that may be untrue.
Antonio assists, you know, very good his delivery.
I think we'd be inclined to say the stadium, would we?
Yeah? That your answer?
It's the false one. Yup. OK.
The false statement is...
..West Ham were playing Watford.
They were playing Crystal Palace.
Done you with the yellow strip.
Done me with the away kit.
Yeah, it did. Alternate kit.
Right. We have...
OK, Tuffers. OK. For you it's cycling.
Excellent. Which of these statements is false?
OK. GB were taking part in the team pursuit.
They were facing USA in the Gold Medal match.
Elinor Parker wasn't part of the winning team.
There are your three options.
Team pursuit, against USA, no Elinor Barker.
What are we feeling, fellows?
Have we got any ideas there?
I have not a scooby doo.
I think that... I think them two are right.
You think them two are right?
But don't go on what I say.
Because I... I don't have a clue.
I'm just giving you an opinion.
I like it. At least we're getting something.
And he's not going to argue with you, whatever you say.
No. Because I've got absolutely nothing.
So at least we've got something to work on.
Who was there? Trotty was there.
Rowsell Shand was there.
Oh! She wasn't Elinor Barker, but I can't remember her name.
Who was she? Could it have been Elinor Barker?
Let me just go through each of them, right?
GB were taking part in the team pursuits...
I think they were. So you think that's true?
Yes, I think that's true. OK, that's true.
They were facing USA in the gold medal?
I don't think they were facing the USA.
Oh, so that could be false? So that could be false. OK.
Elinor Barker wasn't part of the winning team?
I don't think she was.
So that's two. Two, we got two.
So, then, that's true? She wasn't in the team?
But I reckon it might be that, I don't think they were...
I don't think it was against USA.
So you're going for against USA.
Yeah. The false statement is...
..Elinor Barker wasn't part of the winning team.
Elinor Barker was a part of the team along with Laura Kenny,
Joanna Rowsell Shand, and Katie Archibald.
You have golf.
OK. Which statement is false?
Yes. Adam Scott was beating Angel Cabrera in a playoff at the Masters.
Adam Scott was becoming the second Australian to win the Masters.
Adam Scott was winning the 2013 Masters.
Which one is false? Second Australian...
Second Aussie for Masters.
Not sure about that.
Only because I seem to remember there being a huge deal that...
Yeah. So who would have won them before that?
Norman or... But did he win Masters?
No. He got beat by Faldo, didn't he?
Remember when he was way ahead of Faldo,
and Faldo came back and nicked it.
Oh, he's done that a couple times.
I can't think of anyone, any other Aussie.
Any other Aussie. It still looks good.
What do you reckon? So we think that's false.
OK. The false statement is...
Adam Scott was becoming the second Australian to win the Masters.
He was actually the first Australian to win it.
So well done!
Well worked out. Now, finally, Phil, it's tennis.
Your statements are...
The Davis Cup was taking place in Glasgow.
Kyle Edmund was partnering Jamie Murray.
The match was taking place in the 2015 competition.
I've no idea, boys.
Got any idea? I have not.
I've got a feeling that... it wasn't Karl Edmund.
Because it's Kyle Edmund.
I can't think... Oh, this is just daft!
I think you should just go with that, before you overthink it again.
Yeah, I think so, yeah.
I think that's true.
Kyle Edmund? Happy with that, boys?
You're the boss. Happy with that?
Kyle Edmund, Sue.
The false statement is...
Kyle Edmund was partnering Jamie Murray.
Yes. It was Dom Inglot who was partnering Jamie Murray.
That's the fella! So well done.
End of the round, and Phil is on 11, Matt in front on 12.
APPLAUSE OVER SPEECH
It is a game of Guess Who now.
You will see a photo made up of three different sports stars.
There's a point for each person you can correctly identify.
Matt, which three British Olympic gold medallists
from the Rio Games can you see here?
Yeah, like that stubble.
Toothy grin. I'll go along with that, Jason? Adam Peaty.
Adam Peaty, looks good. In the middle. Yeah.
Is it the girl who won the taekwondo?
Oh-ho-ho! What a shout!
I think it is. Is it? I don't know yet.
Hair isn't my specialist subject.
I tend not to look, whereas yourself obviously...
Exactly. You would know a good haircut, wouldn't you?
Well, I haven't had one in a while.
Yeah, I think you're right - Jade Jones.
Go with the top, then.
Jade Jones. Yeah, Jade Jones at the top.
Adam Peaty in the middle.
And Jason Kenny. OK.
Are you right? Let's have a look.
Yes, you are.
Jade Jones, Adam Peaty, Jason Kenny. Well done.
Three correct answers in record time.
OK, Phil. Can you identify these three Premier League footballers?
Right. Lukaku middle.
Sanchez at the top? Who?
Fancy a bit of Sanchez for the top? Yeah, definitely. The bottom one...
Walker? I was going to say, Theo, yeah.
It's a white collar.
I know who it is, I know who it is.
Go on! Harry Kane.
Oh, of course it is!
That's a great shout. Good shout, big'un.
You got to say it. Go on. Sanchez.
And Harry Kane. OK, let's see.
You are spot on.
Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane.
Very well done.
Well worked out. OK, we're now on to home or away.
So, one point for a home question,
possibly three points if you go away.
Ashton, coming to you first.
Home question or away?
Let's go home, yeah. Let's go home.
Who kicked the winning points in
Cronulla's 2016 NRL grand final victory
and, later in the year, scored a try
on his international debut in the Four Nations against Scotland?
James Maloney. He...
Yeah, he debuted in the Four Nations, he played Origin this year.
I'm just trying to think, there was no-one else.
Benny Barba, he didn't kick goals.
Yeah, I'm thinking James Maloney, mate.
All over it. James Maloney? Well done, yes, correct.
Well done. Tony, home question or away?
Home, please. Home.
In Poland, in September 2016,
which former Olympic champion set a new cruiserweight division record by
winning a world title in just his tenth fight?
Oleksandr Usyk. It was, from Ukraine. Well done.
Jess, home or away?
Home, please. Which European points race champion won world scratch
race gold in 2015 and followed it up with silver
in the same event a year later?
This is tricky.
Who did you think it was? Or is it... Is it Laura Kenny?
Belgium. Belgium, yes.
Good. Good. Don't know what her name is.
I can picture her but I can't picture her name.
Need an answer. I don't know. Belgium. Is it Belgium? No.
No, all right. Oh, is it UK?
No. Is it Dutch?
Oh, it's Dutch. Oh.
Can't give it to you.
Wild. Yes. Kirsten Wild. Yes.
Good effort, though. It was in there.
Too many clues. So you did know it, you did know it.
Oh, bad luck. Andy, over to you.
Crikey, right, OK.
Home question or you can go away.
We'll just go home. Home, OK.
Who beat Rory McIlroy in a playoff in January 2017 to gain his first
European Tour win in ten years?
It's Graeme Storm. It is, yes.
Well done, mate.
And that means at the end
of that round, the teams are tied both on 16.
Phil, we know how much you love this game.
Yes. In front of you are 15 balls,
you need to put them in the basket that you think matches the correct
answer. Every ball that you have left at the end of the round is
worth a point. OK.
So have you worked out where your A, B and C are?
Got it. C, B, A.
OK. Right, here's your first question. OK.
Which of these teams have won the Super League grand final
on the most occasions?
A, Wigan Warriors.
B, Leeds Rhinos.
C, St Helens.
Any ideas, boys?
I think it's mainly A and C but don't ask me because I get
punched in the head for a living.
Should we just go for, one, two, three, four, five?
Which one are we going... I don't think B's as much as you think.
You don't think B's as much? Leeds?
Is it a big sport? Well, yeah, it is, isn't it?
Cos they're not very good at football any more so...
I don't know, I'm not sure.
You split them evenly.
Should we just go an even split?
Right, you have ten seconds, you're on the clock.
Seven, six, five.
Pour some out of B and put them in C. That's A.
Right, we'll leave it in there. You're done, OK.
I've no idea. So how many have you put in A, Wigan?
One, two, three, four, five. One, two, three, four in B.
That's Leeds, yup.
And one, two, three, four, five, six in C. OK.
And the correct answer is...
..B. Leeds Rhinos.
Leeds. But you're taking four through to the next fixture.
We got four.
I apologise. Difficult. Leeds Rhinos,
since '98 perhaps they've been good. Haven't they, Leeds?
For your next question you can only put the balls in two of the baskets.
You have to leave one blank.
Excellent. Which of these countries has produced the most different
drivers to win the Formula 1 World Championship?
Well, Raikkonen, Hakkinen, Finland. Hakkinen. Yeah. Any ideas?
Prost. Can you think of an Austrian?
What's the other country? Austria. Berger. So France are out.
You reckon France are out?
Well, you can only name one.
Yeah. Finns are good for the driving.
I think we man it up and go Finland.
Andy going for. What all in?
All in Finland. We've got four, I mean...
I've got a lot to play with.
So not Austria? So it's that and that?
Finland's A. Me heart.
All in? It's all in.
All in. Boom, there you go.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
Not even having a little side bet on that.
It's just gone all in, A.
Finland drive really well. There's lots of snow over there,
they've got to be good. The correct answer is...
Ok. Yes. Last round. You're going to have to do the same
because you can only use one basket this time.
One basket, so it's all in. Yeah.
Which of these players scored the most goals in all competitions
for Liverpool -
A, Steven Gerrard,
B, Robbie Fowler,
C, Michael Owen?
Got to be God, hasn't it? Fowler?
Got to be. Got to be Fowler?
Come on, boys. It's not Stevie G, is it?
I think... I think it is.
No, it's not. It's Robbie Fowler. I think you've got a chance, mate.
It could be...
It could. You'd be surprised
at how many years he carried that team on his own.
I watched him. Who do you support, Andy?
Liverpool. You support Liverpool.
I personally watched that man carry that team for a decade on his...
On his own. I think it's Robbie Fowler.
Robbie was... Robbie scored a lot of goals.
I'm just not sure he had the longevity that Steven had.
He must have played ten years for Liverpool. No...
Was it? Yeah, he was there for ages.
Happy? Happy with B?
I'm happy with B. Go on.
That is B? Yeah, that is B.
Robbie Fowler, Sue. OK.
Well, C, Michael Owen was 158.
That's a lot. A, Steven Gerrard, 186.
No way! Told you he scored...
Oh, Tony told you.
B, Robbie Fowler, was he more than 186?
He was 183.
GROANING You've lost them all!
So, back you come.
You've scored nothing.
APPLAUSE OVER SPEECH Told you.
OK, Matt, your turn now.
Out you come. Same rules apply. Yeah, yeah.
OK, your first question is...
which of these teams has won the Super Bowl the most times -
A, Miami Dolphins,
B, New York Giants,
C, Denver Broncos?
Won the Super Bowl the most times.
The Giants have definitely won it a few times.
They beat New England in...
Was that in '07 or '08, '09? Good knowledge!
Giants have got to be up there.
Giants won it a couple of times, say, '80s.
We've got to keep a few in the middle.
What do you reckon? If we were going to split...
We're going to split either way.
What are we going to say? I reckon...
Are we going to split it?
Seven in the middle, four either side?
Denver have definitely won it at least three times.
Your time starts now.
Ten seconds. Oh, oh, oh...
Where do you want the most? Quick! I reckon take a few out of A.
BUZZER No! Oh, no!
Where's the stopwatch?
The clock has ten seconds. That's what I said -
"Your time starts now." You could have given me, like,
a "Three, two, one," Sue.
I don't do that.
So, how many have you got in A?
I've gone four with A...
And four... ..and four with C,
and seven with B.
OK. The correct answer is...
..B, New York Giants. It is.
APPLAUSE OVER SPEECH
So, you're taking seven through.
Now you must leave one empty.
One empty? OK.
At least one. Yes, you can just put them all in one, like Tuffers did.
Which of these countries won the most medals
at the 2016 Olympics -
For some reason, the Aussies, they didn't have a very good Olympics,
did they? No, they didn't. I think they were...
C... I think they were probably... They were eighth or ninth,
were they? All right, calm down. Germany? It wasn't that great.
It was... Well, it was terrible. It wasn't bad. Yeah.
So, I reckon...
I reckon we're out. I reckon all in C. Ooh!
What?! The girl...
The girl in the track cycling cleared up.
Medals, not gold, just medals. Yeah.
Germans. Listen, if you're telling me to...
You know. Usually...
No? Are we discounting the Aussies?
Completely? Unfortunately. OK.
Completely? You can never...
Well, put one in there, just for my sake.
I mean, I will do.
Ten seconds. What do you want me to do?
Seven... Do you want me to go in here...?
Just put one in... Three... Another one!
I've still got my finger on it.
No, it's done! Leave it.
The buzzer's gone. It's not actually touched the ground there.
It's in my possession, Susan.
Two in B and five in C.
It can't be A. It can't be. I won't live this down!
Australia, 29 medals.
No. Italy, 28. Oh...
CHEERING You take five through.
APPLAUSE OVER SPEECH
This is your last question, Matt. You've got to go all in on this one.
We will go all in.
Which of these bowlers has taken
the most Test wickets in his career -
A, Darren Gough,
B, Steve Harmison,
C, Matthew Hoggard?
I don't know, I'm tempted to go Harmy.
Are you? Yeah. Yeah.
No? If you were given the choice, where would you go?
I... Look, man...
I was thinking Gough myself. Were you? I can only...
I can just remember him taking a heap of wickets
against us in the Ashes and... That's only one country, isn't it?
Going on the theme that Tony was talking about, longevity...
..who do you reckon bowled for the longest?
For longevity, I thought Hoggard.
Oh, don't bring Hoggard into it!
Go with your gut.
Jess, this is an absolute lottery.
You have absolute carte blanche to pick a letter
and we are going all in.
I don't want this on my conscience.
There is no need to have it on your conscience
because we don't know the answer. You pick it then. Go on, Jess.
You could be a superstar here. Ten seconds.
What's that one? B. B.
In. Six, five... Harmy.
Would you have gone with Harmy? Would you?
Good one, Jess. Good shout!
He looks the sweatiest. "He looks the sweatiest"!
I like that.
As you said, I think they're all pretty close, but...
Harmy had a great little run
and became number one bowler in the world. Well...
Darren Gough got...
That's quite a few.
Matthew Hoggard, 248.
Really? Surely Harmy has... Oh, Hoggy.
..226. Oh, it was...!
No! No points there, I'm afraid, again. Hoggy!
Well, after that high-scoring round,
we come to the final round
and there's one point for a correct answer
but one point away if you get it wrong.
Here we go.
Which side did Manchester United beat
in the 2017 Europa League final?

What a battle, right to the end.
Well done, Andy. A win for Phil's team!
I think we're all exhausted.
A huge thank you to all of our guests.
That was so much fun.
The three of us will be back soon.
Until then, goodbye from us all. Bye-bye.
