CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Hello, and welcome to A Question Of Sport.
The teams look raring to go, so let's meet them.
Joining Matt are England netball star Pamela Cookey
and snooker legend Stephen Hendry.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
And on Phil's team are world champion sprinter Danny Talbot
and Wales record try scorer Shane Williams.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
So, let's get things underway,
and we're going to start with a Picture Board.
And, Phil, you are up first.
So, the time will start when you've picked your first number.
Right, here we go. Sue, number one, please.
-Oh, erm... Oh, what's...?
-Yes, shout them out. Two. Two.
-Great shout. Three.
Oh, the number ten.
Went to the Lions, never played, or played one game. Oh, what...?
-I know. I know. I've forgotten.
-Great shout. Five.
-Oh, Ken Brown.
-Oh, I don't know!
-Move on. Move on. Nine.
-Oh, great shout. Ten.
-Oh, Rainford-Brent. Ebony Rainford-Brent.
-Yes, it is!
-Oh! It's at 12!
The only one you missed was the Wimbledon champion
-Great start. You've scored ten.
-Yeah, good work, boys. Good work.
OK, Matt, are you and your team ready?
We're going to start with number nine, please, Sue.
-Oh, good shout. 11.
Erm... Oh! Jamaican.
Oh! Can we come back, no?
12. No, move on. 12.
-Yeah, and eight.
-Oh, no. Oh, no!
Move on. Oh, no! I'm so sorry. Six.
-Liz McColgan, yes. One.
Who's that? Sunderland? Sunderland?
Move on. Three.
-Yes, the Jamaican actually was Romelda Aiken.
-Came back to you there, didn't it?
-Never mind, never mind.
-Got the other one.
-The English weightlifter was Zoe Smith.
Oh, Zoe! I'm so sorry, Zoe.
-I'm so sorry.
-And Welsh midfielder Joe Allen.
At the end of the opening round,
Matt is on nine, Phil in front on ten.
Now it is time for Sports Action.
Just try and watch closely, and take in everything you can.
Putt for an eagle, but it's got quite a bit of swing at the end.
He's done it, I think. Yes, he has.
-Right down the middle.
-Archibald. Deng. Deng tries.
-It's a great screen.
Needs to nail the dismount.
Winds up, kicks high into the stadium.
What a dismount!
First man to do it in a world final,
and look at this.
He's going to win his second Olympic gold.
Game, set and match, Miss Bartoli.
She is unique. She is Wimbledon champion, as well.
Desperately trying to turn this.
Can she get the rotation? Yes, she has.
Karina Bryant has got an Olympic bronze medal.
And it's still Edgar Davids.
And it's his first goal for Tottenham Hotspur.
Round the outside. Oh, and there's a faller!
Oh, and they've all gone!
SUE CHUCKLES So...
..we're playing noughts and crosses now.
You must pick a sport from the board
to answer a question on.
If you get the question right,
the square is yours
and your face appears.
If you are wrong, you'll see your opponent's face.
There is a point on offer for a correct answer,
and if you get three squares in a line, there is a bonus point.
And so, Matt, as you are trailing,
you get to pick first.
Oh, my goodness. Golf.
You're going with the golf. Right.
Who was US captain when Webb Simpson made his Ryder Cup debut?
-That's my guess, but...
-Because he's done it twice?
He's just about to do it twice, or he has done it twice?
He has... He's done it twice already, I think.
-So, by our team's calculation...
-..we think it was in 2012...
That wasn't the question. LAUGHTER
-Yeah, he was the captain.
-..Mr Hendry, was...
We're going Davis Love III.
Is the right answer! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Good luck with whatever question you choose.
LAUGHTER That's the standard.
-Athletics, please, Sue.
Kenyan David Rudisha was winning gold in Rio in the 800m.
Who was the last British man to win an Olympic medal in that event?
-Oh, it could have been Coe.
-Steve Cram is younger than him.
Steve Cram is younger than them two boys,
so that's the best we've got at the moment.
So, there's just another chap who might have been after Crammy.
-Oh! Steve Cram.
-You're going with Crammy?
Let's see whose face appears.
No, it wasn't Crammy. He won it in the 1,500.
But in the 800, it was Seb Coe...
-Oh, it was Coe!
-Darts, please, Susan.
Who did Adrian Lewis beat to win his first world title in 2011?
See, I only know Phil "The Power" Taylor.
Well, I mean, that's as good as any.
-As good as any.
-I don't think he beat him in the final.
So, we've got The Power.
-We've got Anderson.
-No, he wasn't around then.
-Dennis the Menace?
-Who was the Australian guy with the ponytail?
Yeah. He's a possibility.
Can you make it a bit shorter, then? Any chance?
Well, which one would you go with, then?
If I was going to go...
-..I'd go with these two. One of these two.
Who are those two you've just circled, Stephen?
-Whitlock and Anderson.
-Go with it.
-Oh, me again?
-No, Pamela. Pamela's going to go with it.
-Go on, Pamela.
-You're going with Whitlock.
-Is it the win...
Well played, fellas. Well played.
Should have gone with the other one. It was Gary Anderson.
-So, back in it.
-We're just going to go basketball.
-You saw Luol Deng in action in London.
With which team did he start his NBA career?
-I vaguely remember the Bulls.
-Yeah, I think that.
Cos it was, like, that was when someone who's...
..from our little island playing for the Chicago Bulls.
-You know what I mean?
-That's why I think we should go for him.
-Go on, then, mate.
-Yeah, Chicago Bulls.
OK, yeah, I think...
-That's a nice percentage play. Football.
Edgar Davids was scoring for Spurs,
but with which club did he win the Champions League in 1995?
-Black and white?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-Did he wear black and white?
Yeah, I was thinking Newcastle in my head.
-Yeah, I reckon that's a good shout.
All our team, we're going for Juve, Sue.
You're going for Juve, are you? OK, let's see.
-Nobody likes that!
-We had Juve.
-Oh! It's a trick question!
In which year was Marion Bartoli winning the Wimbledon singles title?
Kvitova won one since then, I think.
-Came back from her injury and won one. Kvitova.
-'11? '12? '13?
I reckon it could be...
-Did you say '14?
-I thought it was '15, but it might be '14.
-'14? Happy with '14?
-I'm happy, yeah.
-Happy with '14?
-Yeah, I think so.
F... 2014, Sue.
-Big, smiley Phil face.
-Are you right?
-Come on, big smile.
-Whose smile will be there?
-Big, smiley Phil.
Come on. Big, smiley...
-So... Now, Matt?
Who did you see in action at the European Championships?
Kristian Thomas. Kristian Thomas? Kristian Thomas?
Kristian Thomas. And it is...?
Yes, Kristian Thomas. Well done. APPLAUSE
-We are going to go speed skating.
What nationality was the speed skater
winning gold at the Winter Olympics?
Dutch is pretty good. Dutch is a very good shout.
-He was obviously the...
-They are good at it, the Dutch.
..the worst skater cos they all fell, didn't they, and he won?
-Yeah, that's true.
And it was a massive shock, wasn't it? So...
-Fancy a bit of Dutch?
-We haven't got anything else, have we?
-We've got nothing else in the locker.
-Sue, we are going to go Dutch.
-Going Dutch. OK, let's have a look.
No, it was when Steven Bradbury of Australia...
-..stormed through to take the gold.
As Shane said, it was a huge upset.
-So, going for the win.
-Well, well, well...
LAUGHTER What are you going to choose, Daws?
-We're going to have a good go at judo and...
You saw Karina Bryant winning bronze at London 2012.
Which other British judoka won a medal at those games?
It would be Gemma Gibbons. Isn't it? Gemma Gibbons?
Gemma Gibbons, you're going for? OK. So, whose face will appear?
Yes, it is Gemma Gibbons. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
That's well done. One point for the correct answer,
and a bonus point for the line. Well done. And at the end of
the round, Phil is on 11, Matt in front on 13.
We are putting you under pressure in this round.
Each team will have 45 seconds
to answer as many questions as possible.
There's one point for a correct answer,
but you'll lose a point for a wrong answer or a pass.
You can confer, but I can only accept
-the first answer from whichever member of the team.
-OK, Matt, your team are first.

So, three points scored.
We didn't play that very well, did we?
It's now time for Home Or Away,
and Pamela, we're coming to you first.
Home or Away?
After winning Commonwealth gold in Melbourne and Delhi, whose 184 goals
helped her win a third successive World Cup medal in 2015?
-Aussie won it in that, and they won it in that.
So we're looking for an Aussie.
-An Aussie goal shooter...
-An Aussie goal shooter.
-..going back to 2006.
So, then, that could be Catherine Cox...
-But then she wouldn't have played in 2015.
No. So then you're looking at a...
Who's the legendary Australian goal attack player
who's been around forever?
Could Miss Medhurst have scored 184 goals in that period?
-In the whole period?
-Yes, she could have done.
I'm going to go Medhurst.
-You were looking for an Australian.
Oh, no, is that the first mistake we made?
Oh, you're kidding me! No! Wait...
Should have been looking...
Wait, wait, wait.
It must be New Zealand, then.
-New Zealand. Maria...
Tu...Tutaia! Oh, Tutaia!
Bad luck, Pamela. Danny, over to you.
-We'll go home.
-You're going home, OK.
Take your time. Take your time.

Are we throwing in Great Britain?
-We're going to throw in Great Britain, Sue.
Britain. And one more?
-I'd be tempted to go in here.
-That, yeah, rather than that.
Great Britain is right.
-Is it really?
-Excellent, happy. Happy.
Oh, she's going to say the next one's wrong, though.
DROWNED BY APPLAUSE
Shane, coming to you. The lead has changed hands.
It's home or away?
-Stay home, stay home.
After finishing as the leading try scorer in the Pro12 last season,
who then scored twice against Samoa in only his second international?
I... I think that's it.
What you thinking about?
I'm thinking he's Scottish.
Sure it's Scotland.
Is it Tommy Seymour?
No, it wasn't.
-Did he play for the Scarlets?
Oh, come on. You know that.
Oh, Van Der Merwe?
You didn't have it, either?
-No, Van Der... I went Van Der Merwe.
So, bad luck. No point there.
But now, it is time for Top Ten, and you're both playing along.
Your topic is basketball.
Ten teams have won the NBA championship
on more than one occasion.
There's a point for each one you can name.
But if you give me two wrong answers, you will be out,
so choose carefully.
And I do need the full team name, OK?
-I do need the full...
-More than one time?
Yes. We'll allow you one wrong answer.
And Phil, as you are trailing, you get to go first.
-Boston... Oh, sorry, Boston...
Full name. Boston Celtics.
-We need the full name.
-OK, Boston Celtics.
Where are they on the list?
-At the top?
-Course they are.
Number one. Well done.
Yes. Well done, number three on the list.
So, back to you, Phil.
-LA Lake... Los Angeles Lakers.
Yes, we now have the top three on the board.

-That's them, yes.
Gold State Warriors.
-Yes, very good.

Yes! Well done. Well done.
-Going for Cleveland?
-Just once, is it?
Yes, they've won it about five times, four or five times.
-San Antonio Spurs.
-San Antonio Spurs.
Going for San Antonio. Let's have a look.
-I can't think of the last one.
-Don't worry, keep going.
I think we're going to have to go with the New York Knicks.
-You're going with New York Knicks?
-Let's have a look.
Just for a bit of history.
You all right, Matt?
Too much knowledge over there!
I love how you're taking the credit, there. Danny's getting them!
Danny's writing them down.
-The Houston Rockets.
Yes, number 10.
-Two are missing.
-Let's go with Shaq...
Was he Orlando Magic? We'll go with that.
We'll go with Orlando Magic.
You're going with Orlando Magic. Is it there?
He's shaking his head. Danny's shaking his head.
So, Danny, talk us through your list, then.
I think the Bucks have won it, maybe. Milwaukee.
Utah, I feel like they should have, they have had a lot of good players
and they've been to the play-offs a lot.
But I think Philadelphia have won it three times.
So which one are you going for? Because we have to take one.
OK, you're going for the 76ers.
-The Milwaukee Bucks?
-You're going for the Bucks? Are they there?
-Right, so what was the other one?
-Oh, I dunno, then.
-Utah, maybe. They've made the play-offs a lot.
-OK, then, so...
But have they won it twice?
-We haven't got anyone else, have we?
-Yeah, we'll go for it.
-Your final answer?
HE IMITATES A CLARINET
Going for the Jazz?
Got away with that. Got away with that.
Don't say the... Don't say the Pistons, Sue.
You can read it, then.
Good knowledge, Danny, well done. It's the end of the round
and Matt is on 19, Phil in front on 21.
And we're ending the show with a Sprint Finish.
You know you've got to have a good one, Matt. You're up first.
OK, here we go. Come on, we've got this. We've got this.
-OK. Are you ready?
Your time starts now.
Oh, they're the, er...
No, no, they're... American football star, the star is their emblem.
-No... They give milk!
-Bull... What goes with cows?
Oh! Not the goal shooter, but...
Oh, he did ten events, brilliant, whistled the national anthem.
-Oh, Daley Thompson.
Your...snooker goes all the way to the very last colour.
-Yes, and you play a...?
-It's called a black ball...?
-Shoot out? Black ball decider?
-Not a match, but a...?
Thanks for coming, Pamela, by the way, thanks for the snooker!
What's this, what's this here?
-What's it called?
No, the whole thing, what's it called?
-There was numbers on it...
Yes, yes! Oh!
-Not a gallop. Not a gallop.
No, bit slow... Oh, bit quicker! Bit quicker!
When has a cowboy ever done "moo-oo"?
-And you ran out of time for canter.
-Oh, did we?
Yes, sadly, the whistle went.
Needed a big score, and you scored
Up you come, Phil. Up you come.
Here we go.
In rugby, you get penalised,
not for that way, that way.
Oh, if you've got a dodgy ticker, what do you get put in there?
-And it's also running...
-Horses have them.
-No, no... They put them on the head so they have to see...
-Yes, yes, yes, yes.
Oh, the swimming girl, our girl, 400 and 800 metres.
You've done loads of them.
You throw it, and you go, "Ha-ha, saw that coming, I've got it..."
Hoops, black and white hoops.
Oh, 400 metre, gold boots.
400 metre legend.
In golf, if you play rubbish for the first two days, you...?
Make... You don't make the cut.
No, yeah, you...
-Yes, you something the cut...
-Miss the cut.
-Miss the cut.
Well done, boys. I think we've done that.
-Yes, you just ran out of time for "miss the cut."
Well, you needed four, you scored seven.
And you've won the game! Well done.
Well done to both teams, though, it's been so much fun this evening.
And a huge thank you to all of our guests, to Danny and Shane,
to Pamela and Stephen. The three of us will be back soon.
Until then, from all of us here, goodnight.
