Hello, and welcome to A Question Of Sport.
On Matt's team
are Cricket World Cup-winning captain Heather Knight
and British sprinting great John Regis.
And joining Phil is world champion taekwondo star Bianca Walkden,
and England international defender Danny Mills.
But before we start the quiz, Heather,
I think you've brought something with you?
Yeah, I've got a little mate with me.
Here's the trophy that we won.
CHEERING Well done.
Love it, love it!
Well done, Heather. But just how nervous were those final stages?
Yeah, it was a tense one, wasn't it?
Yeah, we kept it interesting.
We thought we might have been slightly out of the game
towards the end, but managed to hang in there.
The pressure of chasing in the World Cup final,
and managed to get over the line, so, yeah, really chuffed.
Heather, you had some fantastic support up and down the country,
-that must have spurred you on?
-It was brilliant.
A sell-out at Lord's, a World Cup final, nothing better.
And playing all over the country - Bristol, Derby -
and everyone came up to watch us.
The support has been unbelievable, and I can't thank everyone enough.
-Yeah, brilliant. And what's next? The Aussies?
-Yeah, we do.
We're going to Australia in October,
and hopefully we can get the Ashes back, that would be nice.
-That would be brilliant. Well done on a fabulous performance.
Yes, well done.
But let's see if you can help your team to victory tonight.
And we are starting with the Picture Board,
and we're starting with you and your team, Matt.
-Here's your board.
-We'll start, please, Sue, with number eight.
-Dane van Niekerk.
Lovely start. Number seven.
-Yes, it is.
-Oh, I used to go to school with him, Richard Bland.
Who is that? I can't get the angle.
-Move on. Not Ronnie? Ronnie?
-Move on, move on.
-Number nine. That was McManus, wasn't it?
Waite? Waite? Wade?
-God, I'm not helping much here.
Oh, it's Robbie, what's his name?
-The high jumper.
-No, it's 400m.
-The 400m runner.
-Yes, it is, quick, quick, quick!
Go, go. Move on, move on, move on.
Oh. Um, um...
-Oh, I know that!
He was on the show, he was on the show.
Came on the show.
-Crolla. That was terrible.
And it was Alan McManus, the snooker player,
that you guessed after.
The darts player, BDO world champion,
was Mark Webster.
-And European champion,
it was Martyn Rooney.
-Martyn Rooney was the athlete.
-Right, Phil, you have 60 seconds.
-What's your first number?
Number one, please, Sue.
Oh, um, oh... Courtney Lawes.
-Oh, er, King.
Move on, move on. Number five.
-Oh, any ideas?
Move on, move on. Six.
-Oh, oh, don't...
Move on, move on. Eight.
-Erm, Nafia Kus?
Oh, lovely. Nine.
-I don't know!
Oh, er, Bottas.
-Oh, move on, move on.
Move on, move on.
-Oh, my God.
-Not a good start.
-Alvaro Morata, Spanish striker.
And F1 driver was Rubens Barrichello.
-Oh, was it?
English darts star, Kevin Painter.
The tennis player was Marion Bartoli.
Oh, of course it was.
And the England under-21 midfielder, Demarai Gray.
OK. It's going to be one of those shows, is it?
Yes. A little tricky opener for our teams.
But they are tied, both on five.
Now, it is time for Sports Action.
So take in as much as you can here.
What an effort, it's a new lifetime best, it's 74.
She's got it! Great Britain lead New Zealand three goals to nil.
Here he is. Great goal.
Clever little shot in, and he's got him again as he comes in.
Sinks to his knees on the canvas.
Amberley House is absolutely flying down the outside.
A winner in the National, Amberley House wins the National.
We've got another 15 metres to go. He's got to stay strong.
He will leave Rio as the Olympic champion.
We are playing noughts and crosses.
You need to pick a sport from the board.
If you get the question right,
the square is yours,
and your face will appear.
If you get it wrong, you will see your opponent's face.
There's a point on offer for a correct answer.
And if you get three squares in a line, there is a bonus as well.
So, Matt, we'll ask you to pick a sport first.
-Don't know when it was, though.
-Horse racing, huh?
Noughts and crosses, you've got to go for the middle, haven't you?
You're on your own if you go horse racing!
-Nope, can't help you there.
-That's not going to be very good.
Not quite my vintage. Erm...
OK. Any that we were really quite...
Cricket, you like the cricket, don't you?
-Yeah, I quite like cricket!
..that's no good for us, is it?
I didn't know the guy.
Hockey? Athletics, did we get the athletics?
Did you get the hammer? Did you get that one?
No! It's a hammer thrower!
It's still athletics, though. Track and field, no?
OK. Let's go with, er...
Who did Stewart Cink beat in the Open play-off in 2009?
-Is the right answer.
Well, I'd say to try and block, let's go there.
-Go on, then.
-Because we know who it is.
-Kayaking, please, Sue.
I never thought I'd hear myself say that on Question Of Sport!
Who was winning gold at the Rio Olympics?
It was Liam, erm...
Liam Heath is the right answer.
Let's go with hockey.
-You're going with hockey?
BEMUSED LAUGHTER OK.
I might know that one, though.
Who was scoring the penalty against New Zealand at the Rio Olympics?
Yes, it was.
Fancy a bit of boxing?
-Shall we go for it?
-A bit of boxing?
-A bit of boxing, Sue, please.
-Take the risk.
..was winning Olympic gold in which city?
It was in Beijing, yes. APPLAUSE
All right, girl, don't worry, don't worry, don't worry!
-Do not worry.
-Pressure's on you, John.
Do not worry. Do you know the hammer thrower?
-OK, we'll go cricket.
You're going cricket? OK.
Who was the batsman being dismissed by Mitchell Starc?
-It was, yes.
-Come on, the World Cup winner!
I know that girl's name, who did the hammer throwing, as well.
She's been on the show, hasn't she?
She's been on the show. She sat where Heather's sat.
Shall we say just say, like,
random names, and then, you just, click?
-Like, Sophie, Hannah...
-I don't think that works with me.
-Shall we go with the footie? Just get a point.
-It's a point, innit?
-And then throw it back to him.
-We'll go safe.
-Shall we go safe?
-Go on, then. Football, Sue.
What was the nationality of the Manchester City goalscorer?
-Don't know the horse racer.
-Well, I've got an idea.
-Who was riding, it's going to be, innit?
-I've got an idea.
Well, tennis is the low risk, isn't it?
Because if we get it wrong, it doesn't give them the win.
Then, the pressure's on them.
If we get it right, then, wherever they go, if they get it wrong,
-we get the win.
-Happy with that?
I mean, obviously, we've got to get the tennis right!
But, we'll go with tennis, Sue.
OK. Who was Johanna Konta beating in the Wimbledon quarterfinals?
That still doesn't help us, even if he gets it wrong, though.
It is, yes!
Simona Halep. Well done.
In there! In. There.
We don't know that, and we don't know...
-Which one are you going for?
-Horse racing, Sue, please.
Who was riding Amberley House to the 2004 Grand National victory?
13 years ago, it's a long time, innit?
-Go on, go for that.
I ain't got a clue, so just...
-I think it is.
-It was at Aintree!
-Richard Johnson, Aintree...
But I was, like, six.
I think that's it. I don't think it was Mickey Fitz...
Sue - Johnson?
-No, not Richard Johnson.
So, Matt's face appears.
The answer was Graham Lee.
But, Matt, you get the bonus point, for the line.
-Sue, who was the hammer thrower?
I know it so well.
I giggle, because Bianca said, "Sophie...?"
-It was Sophie Hitchon.
-Oh, it was Sophie Hitchon.
-I said, like, think.
-I even said Sophie.
You got the first name.
-But would you have got Hitchon?
And, at the end of the round,
Phil is on eight,
Matt's in front, on ten.
OK, Matt, we're starting with your team for this one.
Who is missing from this list of England Test cricket captains?
Atherton springs to mind, is he in there?
This is in the order that they first captained England.
Where's Vaughny in there?
He wouldn't be that one, he'd be towards the end.
-Yeah, after Nasser.
-I think I'm sure!
You're sure, yeah?
Would Atherton have captained before Stewie?
-I think he was afterwards.
When Stewie first captained England.
Wow. Well, we're going to go with Michael Vaughan, Sue.
-The other Michael.
-You think so?
-Go on, then, Michael Atherton.
Michael Atherton, Michael Vaughan.
-Yes, you're right.
Which Championship-winning football teams are missing here?
As you can see, it starts with Cardiff City,
who won it in 2013.
2013. So, who then won...? Newcastle...
Would it have been Hull?
-Boro went up in the play-offs.
-Boro went up in the play-offs.
-Did Bournemouth win it?
-Did Bournemouth win it?
-Yes, Bournemouth won it by a stretch.
Leicester's a great shout.
Leicester's a great shout.
-2013, 2014 - Leicester.
-It could be, yeah.
-Yeah, Leicester, Bournemouth.
-Go with it.
-Feel terrible now, if it's wrong.
-Are you sure, Danny?
-No, but...you know!
Well, no, but I'm pretty sure Bournemouth's in there somewhere.
And I'm pretty sure you've nailed it with Leicester, as well.
Oh, hang on, Norwich went up, didn't they?
It's Leicester, Bournemouth.
No, Norwich beat Boro in the play-off.
Go on, Danny, your question. What are you going for?
-Don't look at me!
-I'm looking at you.
I don't do Championship!
I think that's right. Go Leicester, Bournemouth.
-I'm sorry if it's wrong.
You're going for Leicester, Bournemouth. Let's have a look.
APPLAUSE Well done, well done.
Now we move on to Home Or Away.
Heather, coming to you first. Home question, or away?
-I'm going to have to go home, I think.
In 2017, who became the all-time leading wicket taker in ODIs,
ten years after being named Women's Cricketer of the Year?
Cricketer of the Year?
She's definitely leading at the moment.
-All right. In ODIs?
-Ah, I think so, yeah.
And would she have played for ten years?
Yeah, she's a wise old tree, she's been around a while.
-Yeah? Love it.
It's making me doubt if it's someone from England.
Who could it be from England? There you go, who COULD it be?
Jenny Gunn is leading ODI wicket-taker for England.
I don't think she's won ICC Cricketer of the Year, though.
-I think it's this one.
-Go with it.
It is right, yes.
Well done. Bianca? Home or away?
-We've got a tactic, so I'm going to go home.
Which European won heavyweight bronze
at the 2015 World Championships,
two years after she became the world champion?
Her name's Olga something.
-I've literally just fought the girl!
-Did you win?
-Yeah, I did.
-Yeah? Good lass.
It's Olga, erm...
Just give me, like, a Russian surname, like...?
Olga...Ignovic, or something?
-Oh, Ipova! Ivana, Ivanavova?
-I think it might be...
No wonder you beat her, you had her over!
-What was it again?
Olga Irana... You-ran-her-ova!
I'll say the first name, you say the second name.
-Yeah, go on.
PHIL MUMBLES THEATRICALLY
-How's your spelling, John?
Oh. Not that good!
Home or away, now?
Honestly, be truthful to me,
have you ever got a home question right?
-Have you, honestly?
-OK, I'll try and go home.
At the 2016 English National Championships,
which British sprinter went sub-ten
for the first time over the 100m, with 9.96?
She said English Championships, that was a naughty little question.
It was a clue, actually, it was a clue.
Naughty, why is that naughty?
Because English is English, and the UK means everybody else.
Yeah. Why is that tricky, though?
Because it's two different championships.
-Was that in a different one?
-Is he not English?
I've got it! Yes. Yes!
It was! Yes, it was!
-I frightened you there.
She's evil, she is evil.
Well done. Well earned.
OK, Danny, home or away?
-Come on, Danny.
-Time to gamble, I think.
You like a gamble, don't you? You like a gamble. Come on, then.
-Away, please, Sue.
Name the three teams to have won the European Rugby Champions Cup,
three or more times.
So, that's the Heineken Cup?
Yes, Heineken Cup.
Saracens, could be.
Harlequins might have done it.
Who's the Irish team who play in red?
-Munster, they might have won it.
Might have done.
Toulouse were pretty good.
Have Toulon won it a lot?
-Where was Wilkinson?
Cos they bought everyone, didn't they, for a while?
They did buy everyone for a while,
but that was only about six or seven years ago.
Three or more times?
-We're going old-school here.
Toulouse were very good.
Bath? Have they won it, back in the day?
Not three times.
What are you going with?
We're going to go with Toulon,
Toulouse and Leinster.
-What do you think, Daws?
-I'd say it's pretty good.
Better than good. All three.
Two very valuable points.
Well, now it's time to see how much you're prepared to gamble
and back your knowledge.
Matt, your team are going first and your question is on Formula 1.
-Between 2010 and 2016,
there were six drivers that won five or more Grand Prix races.
Lewis Hamilton was top with 42 wins.
Who were the other five?
OK. So, Hamilton.
-Vettel's got to be up there, hasn't he?
I mean, Alonso could well be.
I'm thinking Mark Webber.
-He had that great season.
-Nearly won it...
Jensen is a tricky one because he won the Championship
in about '08 or '09.
-Is that all there?
So I'm not sure if he just got into that category.
Alonso's a really good shout.
Are we thinking... Is Massa on the list?
Could be up there.
Is Daniel Ricciardo on the list?
Any you're sure of, Matt, for your one-point starter?
Well, Sebastian Vettel.
Is one point!
-Oh, thank you very much.
So you've got one point. Are you going to gamble for two?
I think our second guess should be Mark Webber.
Mark Webber is also correct.
So that is two points.
Fernando Alonso... Who would he have been racing with?
You can freeze on two.
I just get the feeling from my team they don't want to freeze on two.
We've got a World Cup winner over here.
I tell you why I might be... Quite fancy going to Massa,
because I think Hamilton nicked it...
..in Brazil on one of the last races, or something like that.
So Massa might have done quite well,
and he ended up never winning the championship.
-You're going with Massa?
His last win was in 2008.
-You've lost your two points.
-Oh, my goodness me!
-If you'd gone with Alonso, you'd gone still be in it.
Jenson Button also,
and the one you missed out was Nico Rosberg.
Oh, my goodness me, how have we not got Nico Rosberg there?
Oh, that's embarrassing.
Why did he retire? I mean, come on.
-No points there.
OK, Phil, your team ready? You have got Olympics.
-Happy with that?
At the 2016 Olympics in Rio, America topped the middle table.
Name the five sports in which they won the most medals.
Track and field.
-Is the swimmer Ledecky?
-It's got to be swimming, innit?
-Swimming. Good at swimming, ain't he?
-Yeah, he's great.
They won loads, didn't they?
-Cycling, didn't do that well.
-What are you going to start with for your one-point?
We're going to start, Sue, with track and field.
OK. And that is one point.
You going to gamble?
Correct. Two points.
Are you going to gamble?
-What, for one more point?
Yeah, go for swimming.
-I think we just...
-I think we leave it now.
-I think we're...
-I think we'll leave that.
-We'll leave it.
-I can't think of any more.
-Shall we freeze?
-Are you going to freeze?
Sue, we're going to freeze.
OK, then you get your three points, well done.
What were you tempted to go for?
We didn't really know. Go on.
Yeah, and fencing was the other one,
I don't think you would have probably thought of that one.
-Good freeze, but a good round for you.
End of the round, Matt is on 14,
but Phil's in front on 17.
So, we are finishing the show with the Buzzer Round.
There's one point for each correct answer,
One point away if you get it wrong, hands on the buzzers, here we go.
What is the surname of the brothers Jordie and Beauden who started...?

Which famous race did Allan McNish win for the third time...?
MATT RINGS HIS BELL REPEATEDLY
-Out of time. The whistle had gone.
What did you just say, it's your first win?
First win. Every time I've been on that team over there, I've lost.
I thought it was me! I was beginning to think it was me!
