LineFromTo

synchro at least, both well executed. Eights maybe on the

:00:00.:00:00.

execution. Well done those two. Talking about a massive chasm

:00:00.:00:07.

opening up between the last round and this. Some gap as we come. 35

:00:08.:00:14.

points between England and Australia.

:00:15.:00:20.

It looks like four into three, which doesn't go, quite. With two trying

:00:21.:00:25.

to avoid the bottom position. Including this pair, Ahmad Azman and

:00:26.:00:30.

Ooi Tze Liang of Malaysia, reverse three-and-a-half somersault with

:00:31.:00:35.

tuck. It's a big one. 3.5 on this one.

:00:36.:00:39.

Oh, there you go. Right. So that was the bogey dive for team Malaysia,

:00:40.:00:45.

and that I both have blown it slightly, Azman making a big

:00:46.:00:49.

mistake, I didn't think this was his dive. The Commonwealth champion

:00:50.:00:54.

doing a good job. That throws it wide-open. So Robinson-Baker and

:00:55.:00:57.

Freddie Woodward will find themselves in bronze medal at the

:00:58.:01:01.

end of this round. This is the penultimate round as we move into

:01:02.:01:07.

six of six. We could see two medals for Team England. We will see the

:01:08.:01:12.

caption come up. It makes good reading from an England perspective.

:01:13.:01:16.

Not so much for can the and New Zealand. England are inferred.

:01:17.:01:32.

Canada, New Zealand and Malaysia, ten points between England and two

:01:33.:01:35.

and Canada. -- in two. The last round of the men's three

:01:36.:01:56.

metre synchronised springboard. England have a sizeable lead over

:01:57.:02:09.

Australia, Canada need something big to put pressure on Nick

:02:10.:02:21.

Robinson-Baker in third place. No pressure coming from the Canadians.

:02:22.:02:29.

They reversed two and a half in the pike position. Maxim Bouchard going

:02:30.:02:38.

to early. He hits the water and he slips away. Slips away from the

:02:39.:02:40.

medal podium. Not to be today for Maxim Bouchard and Ryan McCormack.

:02:41.:02:42.

Good effort. A score of three pretty much throughout. It was not to be

:02:43.:02:43.

for them today. England have one more dive. If they do that

:02:44.:02:47.

adequately, they will be on the medals. As these two should be, they

:02:48.:02:57.

are second. 0.4 is the tariff. 257 macro in the 55 -- in the pike

:02:58.:03:06.

position. That is a medal for sure for Australia. They are putting the

:03:07.:03:15.

pressure still and Chris Mears and Jack Laugher. 257 macro, and they

:03:16.:03:22.

have smashed it. Good work, they will get over 80, that is their best

:03:23.:03:29.

dive. Anywhere near 404 a total is a big score. That will extinguish the

:03:30.:03:33.

chances of England getting the silver medal. And we have got

:03:34.:03:40.

Freddie Woodward and Nick Robinson-Baker yet.

:03:41.:03:49.

Jack Laugher and Chris Mears still at the forefront of our thoughts.

:03:50.:03:55.

New Zealand's next. Trying to avoid being bottom. Scrapping with

:03:56.:04:03.

Malaysia. 257 macro for Liam Stone and Fengyang Li. Two twists. That

:04:04.:04:14.

was unsynchronised from the word go. Spinning and twisting at different

:04:15.:04:17.

times, hitting the water at different times. So very different.

:04:18.:04:25.

The marks will be low on the synchronisation. 4.5, 5.5 and 4.5

:04:26.:04:33.

for synchronisation. For very different, that is not very good!

:04:34.:04:44.

They are a makeshift pair so they have done well considering they have

:04:45.:04:47.

been thrown together. It was not there for the most part. Now for the

:04:48.:04:54.

bronze medal. Freddie Woodward and Nick Robinson-Baker have a tricky

:04:55.:05:01.

last dive. Inward three and half somersaults. 94 would take them

:05:02.:05:07.

second. Get in the '80s and they will get the bronze. I knew it was

:05:08.:05:15.

going to be like that, I have been watching it in training and this is

:05:16.:05:19.

their most difficult dive and if they get it right, they will be in

:05:20.:05:24.

contention. They have almost got it right, I am not sure if that will be

:05:25.:05:29.

good enough to hold off Malaysia. Hopefully they have a big enough

:05:30.:05:34.

lead. An agonising wait now. Relatively good synchronisation but

:05:35.:05:39.

they do get punished by the judges because of poor execution. Will that

:05:40.:05:46.

be good enough for a medal? I can as good as guarantee that they are in

:05:47.:05:51.

bronze medal position. good as guarantee that they are in

:05:52.:06:00.

They are in silver medal position because these two have not gone yet.

:06:01.:06:04.

If they get in the high for hundreds, Chris Mears and Jack

:06:05.:06:14.

Laugher... That was a dive that Jack Laugher missed yesterday. The 3.8,

:06:15.:06:21.

forward for and a half somersaults in the tuck position, a big dive to

:06:22.:06:27.

finish on. It was not their best but because of the -- but because of the

:06:28.:06:32.

degree of difficulty -- difficulty in synchronisation, they are

:06:33.:06:37.

Commonwealth Gold medallists. They have not just won it by a small

:06:38.:06:42.

margin but by just about 28 points. Over Australia. High risk, not quite

:06:43.:06:50.

executed the way they wanted. But good enough to get them the Gold

:06:51.:06:57.

medal. The Malaysians could just overtake England here. To do that

:06:58.:07:06.

and to steal the bronze medal away, they need 80.46, to take it from

:07:07.:07:13.

Nick Robinson-Baker and Freddie Woodward. And they will still the

:07:14.:07:20.

bronze medal from England as well. That will not be good enough for a

:07:21.:07:25.

medal, not today anyway. Malaysia, made up of the Commonwealth champion

:07:26.:07:30.

in the individual and his partner, Ahmad Amsyar, further stuff from us.

:07:31.:07:35.

That is a good dive but they will finish fourth on the leader us -- on

:07:36.:07:40.

the leaderboard. -- the furthest from us. So Team England get bronze

:07:41.:07:49.

and Gold, silver Australia. A big margin between them. 39 points

:07:50.:07:58.

between Australia and England as well. A lot of smiles and happy

:07:59.:08:06.

faces. Two medals for England, a Gold medal for Jack Laugher and

:08:07.:08:13.

Chris Mears. The England coach is happy, Nick Robinson-Baker, Freddie

:08:14.:08:16.

Woodward is happy. They are all happy. Those

:08:17.:08:20.

Woodward is happy. They are all supporters of the boys. Double Gold

:08:21.:08:26.

now for Jack. One metre, three metre synchronisation, and let's not

:08:27.:08:32.

overlook the matter of a small silver in the individual. A little

:08:33.:08:38.

bit of work to do yet, boy! It makes good leading for England. -- it

:08:39.:08:48.

looks good for England. Matthew Mitcham and Grant Nel get the

:08:49.:08:54.

silver, another silver format -- for Matthew Mitcham. England also in

:08:55.:09:02.

third place. That was quite a competition. We expected coming in

:09:03.:09:07.

that Jack and Chris were the favourites, but when you have

:09:08.:09:11.

Matthew Mitcham, the ten metre champion from Beijing in 2008, he

:09:12.:09:16.

has got pedigree and if he can call it off and Grant Nel has shown he is

:09:17.:09:20.

a useful competitor, it was not guaranteed. Of course. There are no

:09:21.:09:26.

guarantees in any sport, especially diving where every dive counts. Even

:09:27.:09:32.

though Jack and Chris will be disappointed with their final dive,

:09:33.:09:35.

they had enough of a lead to secure victory. The Australians were a bit

:09:36.:09:41.

closer, maybe it would have been more pressure, so that was exciting

:09:42.:09:47.

from start to finish. The real success was the second English team

:09:48.:09:51.

of Nick Robinson-Baker and 19-year-old Freddie Woodward from

:09:52.:09:54.

Sheffield, stepping up and standing on the podium and beating Malaysia

:09:55.:09:59.

who were very strong. And the Canadians were in it until the last

:10:00.:10:07.

dive. So nobody doing a fault list list of dives -- faultless list. So

:10:08.:10:15.

things can go wrong slightly. Nick finished fifth in the Olympics in

:10:16.:10:20.

2012 in the synchronisation which was really impressive. He has missed

:10:21.:10:25.

a lot of this year, a lot of it through choice. He has taken a

:10:26.:10:28.

break. And it is difficult to pick-up and start diving at this

:10:29.:10:34.

calibre straightaway without a lot of backing. He has been working hard

:10:35.:10:39.

with the coaches in Sheffield. He has been paired with Freddie

:10:40.:10:42.

Woodward, a New York superstar of the future at 19. Nick is the grand

:10:43.:10:49.

old age of 27, the grandad of the team almost, he will not mind me

:10:50.:10:54.

saying that. What a great performance. He decided he still

:10:55.:10:59.

wanted to be competing and he has worked hard and he has a

:11:00.:11:01.

Commonwealth bronze medal. These are the winning English pair with Helen.

:11:02.:11:07.

I wish they were with me they are in action with that faultless dive.

:11:08.:11:16.

This place erupted for Jack and Chris. I have a lot of their family

:11:17.:11:23.

here supporting them. -- they have. I love him being called grandad, he

:11:24.:11:28.

might have gone to get his Zimmer frame, he has not come to ask yet!

:11:29.:11:34.

Congratulations -- congratulations to Team England, a Gold and a

:11:35.:11:39.

bronze, they are milking get in celebrating and rightly so. As soon

:11:40.:11:42.

as they come at this lovely barrier, I will grab them. -- they compat. It

:11:43.:11:51.

is just me for the moment. That is Malaysia. -- as soon as they,

:11:52.:11:58.

passed. I will give you a shout. I have no doubt you will get them as

:11:59.:12:03.

soon as you can. Fantastic result for Team England in the first of

:12:04.:12:07.

today's diving finals, they have a Gold and a bronze. We might be able

:12:08.:12:13.

to go back to the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh because she might

:12:14.:12:18.

have found them! I certainly have, congratulations.

:12:19.:12:24.

Double Commonwealth champions, how do you feel? Amazing, it has been

:12:25.:12:30.

really strange, a roller-coaster. To come here with my best mate and get

:12:31.:12:35.

my first one metre Gold medal, it is amazing, I could not be happier. We

:12:36.:12:41.

have heard a lot of about your romance, what does this mean? It

:12:42.:12:47.

means everything. We spend so much time at home, professionally and

:12:48.:12:50.

socially. We are such close friends and to come here and to smash it

:12:51.:12:55.

like we wanted to was amazing. Especially earlier, a couple of days

:12:56.:13:00.

ago, I was so close to the bronze and I missed out by five, six points

:13:01.:13:04.

and I was gutted so to get a Gold and to do what I knew I could was

:13:05.:13:10.

fantastic. Join in. Nick Robinson-Baker, Freddie Woodward,

:13:11.:13:12.

congratulations, your first Commonwealth, what do you make of

:13:13.:13:19.

it? Incredible experience, such a fun competition. Nerves and

:13:20.:13:22.

excitement that I have had a great time and I am happy with bronze.

:13:23.:13:25.

Everybody was saying that the divers were really fun, you guys were

:13:26.:13:31.

having a storm yesterday, no nerves. Not for me, I am old, I'm 27, I had

:13:32.:13:36.

been doing it a long time. These guys have set the standard, it is

:13:37.:13:40.

the Commonwealth Games, we are here, we are loving it. You have been

:13:41.:13:46.

nicknamed the grandad! I will have a word about that, don't you worry!

:13:47.:13:51.

You said yesterday you were going to rip it up and you delivered, did you

:13:52.:13:55.

feel pressure? There is always pressure, especially here in last

:13:56.:13:59.

night was a disappointment is not putting in a great performance but

:14:00.:14:02.

me and Chris wanted to nail it today and we put in a good performance,

:14:03.:14:07.

and we are really happy. I know we are really happy! Ace -- is it a

:14:08.:14:13.

sign of things to come to Brazil? Definitely, we have a lot of

:14:14.:14:17.

preparation up to Rio de Janeiro but this is the first year of

:14:18.:14:18.

synchronisation and we are happy. this is the first year of

:14:19.:14:22.

synchronisation and we are I look forward to hearing what happens in

:14:23.:14:26.

your celebrations! Thank you. Knowing laughter. It will not be out

:14:27.:14:32.

partying yet they deserve to raise the roof somewhere. They stick

:14:33.:14:38.

together now to see their team-mates dive tonight and tomorrow. For now

:14:39.:14:42.

they can enjoy themselves and they will be at the bulls eye to

:14:43.:14:49.

tomorrow. -- and they will lead by the nine dive moral.

:14:50.:14:53.

A great start and so fascinating to see the relationship between the two

:14:54.:15:00.

divers. -- and they will lead by the swimming pool tomorrow.

:15:01.:15:04.

And there is still the men's synchronised ten metre platform

:15:05.:15:08.

final. News now this morning that the teenage Nigerian weightlifter G,

:15:09.:15:17.

Lara who -- has now tested positive in a key test and will face a

:15:18.:15:22.

hearing in front of the Commonwealth Games panel. She became the youngest

:15:23.:15:28.

ever female to win a weightlifting title at a Commonwealth Games. That

:15:29.:15:34.

is how it is ending. Earlier, we were following the dramatic Gold

:15:35.:15:38.

medal match in the women's pairs at the lawn bowls and England lost in

:15:39.:15:46.

an extra end. These are the English women getting their silver medals.

:15:47.:15:53.

They also spoke to ours. They are getting silver medals, the Gold went

:15:54.:15:58.

to South Africa. -- they also spoke to us.

:15:59.:16:10.

I Nat I will I know you are emotional at the moment. But you

:16:11.:16:13.

must be proud of what was fabulous match and what turned out to be a

:16:14.:16:18.

dramatic end? Right now I am not proud. I am gutted. But you know we

:16:19.:16:23.

have a silver medal and I think if we knew we were going to get that we

:16:24.:16:27.

would have been pleased, so obviously it is disappointing, the

:16:28.:16:31.

girls played a great game. Missed it be the smallest of margin, sometimes

:16:32.:16:36.

I think it is not meant to be. That is what happens to be. I suppose the

:16:37.:16:40.

fact is you had the opportunities, and that I imagine makes it harder

:16:41.:16:48.

to swallow. Yes, definitely, but Nat played a great bowl to push it into

:16:49.:16:53.

the extra end. I enjoyed playing with Nat. It has been a great

:16:54.:16:57.

experience. Hope from I in the future we can do better. You are two

:16:58.:17:02.

fresh faced babes of bowl, hopfully you will have many more games to

:17:03.:17:08.

play. This is the first time we have played at elite level together. To

:17:09.:17:13.

come away with the silver it is amazing, the partnership has got

:17:14.:17:20.

better. I am 25, Jamie Lee is 23. The longevity of the sport will

:17:21.:17:23.

allow us to continue as long as we want. Four years time is the goal

:17:24.:17:28.

post. We will look forward to that and go for another gold, hopefully,

:17:29.:17:33.

or a gold rather. And overall, England team has a lot to be proud

:17:34.:17:38.

of, the way they have competed. A gold medal, silvers. Our boys are

:17:39.:17:42.

playing later so they will go for gold. Even has a medal so we are

:17:43.:17:46.

over the moon to come away with something. A couple of silvers for

:17:47.:17:49.

you Natalie. So lots to be something. A couple of silvers for

:17:50.:17:51.

you Natalie. So lots to proud of and I am sure you are not feeling it now

:17:52.:17:55.

but a lot of people are proud of you The support has been amazing,

:17:56.:18:00.

Glasgow has been amaze, it has been a great games and we will look to

:18:01.:18:04.

cheer or boys on. Congratulations, well played. Thank you very much.

:18:05.:18:10.

Also in the lawn bowls the drama in the pairs bronze medal match was

:18:11.:18:13.

just as great. Northern Ireland's Manny Cunningham and Barbara Cameron

:18:14.:18:18.

denied Jersey a first Commonwealth Games medal since 1990. -- Mandy.

:18:19.:18:29.

Earlier we brought you a glimpse of Paul drink hall's match in the table

:18:30.:18:34.

tennis against Ryan Jenkins, he did win that game and he goes through to

:18:35.:18:38.

the quarter-final. He is also playing later on in the men's

:18:39.:18:44.

doubles and in the mixed doubles, so someone to watch there.

:18:45.:18:49.

Someone for you to watch is Jason who will look after the afternoon

:18:50.:18:52.

coverage here on BBC One. I have spent a lot of time watching lawn

:18:53.:18:58.

bowls. There is no better way to spend the morning, my Commonwealth

:18:59.:19:03.

Games I spent a lot time watching a Welsh legend called Betty Morgan

:19:04.:19:06.

winning a medal in Australia. It was terrific. Have you ever played it?

:19:07.:19:11.

No, I might be tempted now. That is one of the great things about an

:19:12.:19:15.

event like this. You find yourself watching something you know nothing

:19:16.:19:18.

about and you get into it What you need to do is get on the website,

:19:19.:19:25.

get inspired and find your local club. Good to see you. Thank you.

:19:26.:19:30.

Enjoy the rest of your day. A good afternoon to you, welcome to Glasgow

:19:31.:19:33.

and the afternoon session of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, this is

:19:34.:19:37.

what is coming up for you this afternoon.

:19:38.:19:41.

We are into the last four of women's hockey. Can South Africa overpower

:19:42.:19:51.

the mighty Australia? We have got boxing for you. Nicola Adams

:19:52.:19:58.

continues her quest for Commonwealth gold, taking on Dan in the women's

:19:59.:20:03.

flyweight. Scotland's Kirstie Gilmore, into the last eight of the

:20:04.:20:08.

women's singles. She takes on New Zealand.

:20:09.:20:11.

And the gymnastics continue at the hydro. Max Whitlock may need a

:20:12.:20:16.

bigger bag when leaves Glasgow. It is the men's parallel bars final.

:20:17.:20:24.

As ever, lots of live action for you on BBC Three, you can watch some

:20:25.:20:29.

terrific squash, the men's doubles taking place over on BBC Three right

:20:30.:20:32.

now. On the red butt top, as Michelle

:20:33.:20:44.

said table tennis. The men's doubles semifinals. On the website, there is

:20:45.:20:48.

some chap by the name of Usain Bolt going in the four by 100 metre relay

:20:49.:20:53.

heats tonight. You may have heard of him! A big night there. You can

:20:54.:20:56.

follow the action on the website. All the sports live on the website.

:20:57.:21:04.

First today, we have reached the last four of the women's hockey, and

:21:05.:21:09.

there is real heavy weight flavour to the semifinals, at Glasgow Green.

:21:10.:21:16.

Take a look at this line up. This is it. Women's semifinals, England

:21:17.:21:24.

taking on New Zealand, that is round 2.30 at Glasgow Green. Into the last

:21:25.:21:28.

four after that final match win over Scotland. The semifinals have just

:21:29.:21:34.

got under way, Australia led by Adam Commons taking on South Africa.

:21:35.:21:43.

So South Africa against Australia is just under way, the Safins finished

:21:44.:21:50.

ninth at the 2014 World Cup. -- south Africans, they have won four

:21:51.:21:53.

of the three Commonwealth titles to date. These are live picture, the

:21:54.:21:57.

game is just under way. Let us pop there now and join our commentary

:21:58.:21:58.

team. A big raking drive down through the

:21:59.:22:15.

field and falls to Australia, again, they come in number, into the spot

:22:16.:22:23.

the only person there together at for South Africa. Russell.

:22:24.:22:29.

She is surrounded by outstanding Australian captain Madonna Blyth.

:22:30.:22:39.

Flanagan and Georgie Parker. Bobs. The under push pass, out of

:22:40.:22:49.

defence and cuts out Marcia Cox. Nelson, and this is Bright on the

:22:50.:22:50.

ball for South Africa. Blyth. You won't see her

:22:51.:23:18.

dispossessed of the ball. Russell. The captain, can't bring the ball in

:23:19.:23:25.

for South Africa. Again they are pouring pressure on. The ability to

:23:26.:23:42.

have Easton with over 200 caps and Blyth nearing 300 caps in the middle

:23:43.:23:44.

of the field. It brings experience to the side and allows the younger

:23:45.:23:50.

plays to play-off them. So again, Smith worrying the south

:23:51.:24:01.

African defence. Just 21 years of age. Here she is,

:24:02.:24:05.

with the headband, for Australia. Taylor.

:24:06.:24:20.

Easily sweep across the pitch from Flanagan. Across to right for South

:24:21.:24:47.

Africa. Smith can't bring the ball round, where she was looking, to

:24:48.:24:59.

hit. And Russell. Now Taylor again. Just over half way. Now Taylor for

:25:00.:25:16.

Australia. The warning has gone out, to South

:25:17.:25:35.

Africa. To tidy it up, the tackling. Bone. Hard-working, tireless worker,

:25:36.:25:40.

Edwina Bone. Let us look what they put on

:25:41.:26:06.

Australia. Now, just outside the line. Now, dangerous. Australia love

:26:07.:26:17.

to put pressure on the defensive unit of a team, for the whole game,

:26:18.:26:22.

but the first 20 minutes, in particular, they really press high.

:26:23.:26:25.

Don't give you any time on the ball. If you can weather that storm you

:26:26.:26:30.

feel you are in with a chance to the end of each half. This Coston for

:26:31.:26:36.

South Africa. Looking for that free hit. They will give it. Look at the

:26:37.:26:53.

angle. Still with South Africa. And confidently, and clinically, out of

:26:54.:26:57.

the Australian defence. Then it is gone.

:26:58.:27:04.

Again, another absolutely hard-working player for Australia.

:27:05.:27:15.

Good control coming out of the South African defence but not Flanagan.

:27:16.:27:24.

She intercepts. Flanagan, opts to go back this time.

:27:25.:27:41.

A strong tackle there and a little click out of there.

:27:42.:27:48.

Umpires needing to work together because it is very fast, skill, and

:27:49.:27:55.

the lit touches are important to get right -- the little touches are

:27:56.:27:59.

important to get right. One-two from South Africa. To blanch. -- Blanch.

:28:00.:28:09.

Whenever South Africa have possession of the ball. Australia

:28:10.:28:15.

literally giving them a four to five yard channel out wide. Nothing

:28:16.:28:18.

through the middle and it is something that South Africa are

:28:19.:28:21.

going to have to look at, trying to breakthrough the Australian press

:28:22.:28:25.

and try and get the ball to the other side.

:28:26.:28:39.

To Blanch. We can hear the big thud as the ball hits the shin pad. Bobs.

:28:40.:28:58.

Semifinal hockey at Glasgow, 2014, and a back flip was expertly brought

:28:59.:29:02.

down. Tackling in numbers, this is a card.

:29:03.:29:26.

The warning went out. Celia Evans is being penalised for the stick

:29:27.:29:30.

tackle. It is probably the third one the South Africans have put in the

:29:31.:29:34.

opening ten minutes and they have been warned. I don't think Sarah

:29:35.:29:37.

Wilson was really given any other option.

:29:38.:29:46.

Right across the other side of the field, forcing the player to motor.

:29:47.:29:59.

Main. And we know how aggressively Jade Main plays the game. She got a

:30:00.:30:07.

very explosive and aggressive player for South Africa. So just over ten

:30:08.:30:21.

minutes gone in the first half. Australia had the early

:30:22.:30:25.

opportunities through the potent penalty corner, that could not get

:30:26.:30:37.

the ball in the back of the net. This is Main.

:30:38.:30:44.

Nelson with the headband as well for Australia.

:30:45.:31:01.

Chamberlain. Dangerous goal score scorer for South Africa. She has got

:31:02.:31:16.

seven already. Now slips the ball into South

:31:17.:31:34.

Africa, across the face. Deep breaths for South Africa now.

:31:35.:31:41.

It is good by South Africa. Winning the free hit and trying to take it

:31:42.:31:55.

quickly, but I would like to see them go to the other side the field.

:31:56.:32:05.

Main gets it back and she will get the free hit. The ball into the

:32:06.:32:17.

circle. Africa. Interesting differences in the rotations. The

:32:18.:32:24.

two coaches have operated differently at the, most Games.

:32:25.:32:31.

Australia are always have a high rotation -- at the Commonwealth

:32:32.:32:34.

Games. That is why they stay at this intensity. They had used 313

:32:35.:32:40.

substitutes at the start of this game, their opponents used 180. At

:32:41.:32:49.

some point, the way Australia like to play could take its toll on South

:32:50.:32:55.

Africa. Fascinating statistic as South Africa look to make progress.

:32:56.:33:09.

Marsha Cox finds the opposition skipper.

:33:10.:33:19.

Russell playing a more midfield position in this match. Certainly

:33:20.:33:41.

against New Zealand, she was a high running striker. Her coach is using

:33:42.:33:52.

her in a different role. Edwina Bone. Bright gets it. A shot at

:33:53.:34:04.

goal... An opportunity for South Africa.

:34:05.:34:16.

This is the counter attack from Smith.

:34:17.:34:22.

Going back to the New Zealand game, the thought process for the

:34:23.:34:33.

coach... That is Flanagan. Chamberlain was certainly around to

:34:34.:34:36.

add to her tally and that was good play by South Africa. Actively New

:34:37.:34:40.

Zealand game, the thought process from the coach would be different to

:34:41.:34:44.

this which is that if you can be New Zealand, the chances are you'll you

:34:45.:34:52.

will miss -- the chances are that he will miss Australia in the

:34:53.:34:56.

crossover. He is going for a more defensive role knowing how Australia

:34:57.:34:57.

can play. -- you will mess. Flanagan. But tussle. Well earned by

:34:58.:35:09.

South Africa. You can see the structure South

:35:10.:35:35.

Africa have. Accurate passing at the moment. Taylor is called.

:35:36.:35:59.

This is Smith again for Australia. Bright is back with one hand on the

:36:00.:36:08.

stick and she gets the pass away. Russell.

:36:09.:36:17.

Great to see the South African back, she took a fearsome blow in one of

:36:18.:36:31.

the previous matches. Flanagan. 17 minutes gone in the first spell of

:36:32.:36:38.

the semifinal here in Glasgow. A loose ball into the centre and goal

:36:39.:36:44.

number one for Australia. Emily Smith has added to her tally, that

:36:45.:36:49.

is her fourth goal for Australia. She opens the scoring. Fantastic

:36:50.:37:01.

advantage by the umpire. A speculative ball through is played,

:37:02.:37:07.

great run by Smith. It is a split finish. The backswing gives shorter

:37:08.:37:12.

and it gives the goalkeeper less reaction time. Often we see those

:37:13.:37:17.

balls go over the bar. Great for South Africa. Another save made.

:37:18.:37:31.

Rachel Lynch in goal for Australia was the goalkeeper at the recent

:37:32.:37:37.

World Cup. She was named goalkeeper of the World Cup. She has not had a

:37:38.:37:45.

lot of work in this campaign but she is the best in the world at the

:37:46.:37:59.

moment. A lot of talk around this Commonwealth Games campaign about

:38:00.:38:02.

how dominant the penalty corners have been for Australia but look at

:38:03.:38:07.

that from that field goal. Proving that variety in the play...

:38:08.:38:24.

Bright catches up. She drags it through. She is still going. But at

:38:25.:38:33.

her speed. Difficult... A penalty corner, she thought it had snuck

:38:34.:38:43.

between the goalkeeper. South Africa are in a penalty corner through Tara

:38:44.:38:50.

bright. It has got to be a disappointing trap here. She takes

:38:51.:38:54.

her eye off the ball and it hits on the shin pad. -- it hits her. Good

:38:55.:39:01.

to see South Africa back in the game, not sitting back and allowing

:39:02.:39:07.

Australia to pressurise them. I imagine number 13 will have a big

:39:08.:39:12.

part to play for South Africa. All set now.

:39:13.:39:20.

Across the face of Lynch. The umpire has to link the ball as well. Damons

:39:21.:39:32.

drives into the circle. One of the best players in the world, Blyth.

:39:33.:39:41.

The pressure goes on. Russell... Again, brave defending. Look how

:39:42.:39:49.

fast Australia now counter attack. Intercepted. This is a young player

:39:50.:40:03.

in the South African line-up, just 20 years of age. Bobbs. She has

:40:04.:40:06.

grown through this campaign. Great eye, as she brings the ball

:40:07.:40:21.

through. She still gets it away. All number two. There is a deflection.

:40:22.:40:30.

It is Kelli White who gets on top of that shot.

:40:31.:40:36.

She turns that inside out and it is across the goal which is a trait of

:40:37.:40:47.

Australian hockey. Awkward to make the trap and white just nips in

:40:48.:40:54.

front. 2-0 to Australia. -- Kelli White. The goal-scorer getting a

:40:55.:41:02.

foot in and from nothing, Australia are now up. They have worked their

:41:03.:41:08.

way into the game, they have waited for their opportunities. Early

:41:09.:41:14.

penalty corners did not come off but the field certainly have. -- the

:41:15.:41:23.

field goals. Into the circle. They had the players.

:41:24.:41:43.

Again, through Peris. At. She, South Africa. -- at. She, South Africa. --

:41:44.:42:02.

they are at. In the, South Africa. Adam Commons, the Australian coach,

:42:03.:42:07.

will be very happy with how his side have executed... Flanagan. That

:42:08.:42:21.

cross came from Georgina Parker and she has scored five goals in

:42:22.:42:26.

Glasgow. Great delivery, she hit the ball cleanly and with pace. Kelli

:42:27.:42:31.

White dived on the far post but she was beaten by the pace of the ball.

:42:32.:42:38.

Neatly touched on. Bright has great touches. A shot at goal across. And

:42:39.:42:47.

at the goal. Saved by Flanagan. What a save!

:42:48.:42:57.

South Africa not taking up the invitation from the -- from the

:42:58.:43:06.

umpire for a referral. Great play. Chamberlain with the reverse stick

:43:07.:43:11.

effort and it was Flanagan on the line. Lynch was quite lucky. I did

:43:12.:43:16.

think she momentarily put her glove over the ball, which prevented South

:43:17.:43:20.

Africa getting it out. Bobbs. Across the circle. A shout at

:43:21.:43:38.

goal. Penalty corner. Might be a referral here.

:43:39.:43:44.

Penalty corner awarded to South Africa!

:43:45.:43:54.

The referral has gone upstairs. This is what we are looking for. Edwina

:43:55.:44:15.

Bone has a case here, she makes a case here. Bright may have come over

:44:16.:44:22.

the top to win the ball. She possibly one it cleanly. If the

:44:23.:44:29.

umpire has heard a stick tackle, it is more -- it is not for Edwina

:44:30.:44:37.

Bone. This looks to be a very good referral from Australia. We will

:44:38.:44:46.

wait for the outcome. There is no stick tackle in the circle for

:44:47.:44:51.

restart. Australia retain their referral. Thank you.

:44:52.:44:59.

So the referral by Australia has been upheld.

:45:00.:45:11.

Casey Eastham WinZip. She is away! -- she wins it. Peris awaits the

:45:12.:45:28.

ball, clever control. Very smooth when Peris gets the ball, great

:45:29.:45:33.

control, and a long corner. Flanagan.

:45:34.:45:43.

ball. It is East Ham now who is bursting through the left channel.

:45:44.:46:25.

What a perfect pass and it could have been any two Australians that

:46:26.:46:29.

latched on to that for another penalty corner for Australia.

:46:30.:46:32.

Turning the heat on, South Africa, in the semifinal.

:46:33.:46:44.

GbK Gb It was a wonderful lead by Smith. Parker managed to pick it up.

:46:45.:46:52.

: On to the foot Be have 15, come on, let's go. Half way, please.

:46:53.:47:06.

Eastham. She will walk into this and Kenny... Kenny it is again, oh, and

:47:07.:47:16.

what a save. Marais, a very good eye on this post for South Africa, but

:47:17.:47:20.

it is not finished yet. Here is Kenny, drives into the circle,

:47:21.:47:22.

hoping to catch a team-mate's stick. Down it goes, it is sill in the

:47:23.:47:40.

field of play. An opportunity down the left flank for South Africa.

:47:41.:47:46.

And still on the stick of the South African Bright can't get a stick on

:47:47.:47:55.

it. That opened it up, and, a very efficient exit for Australia.

:47:56.:48:03.

Australian coach Commons. It is a great turn of speed by Kath Taylor

:48:04.:48:08.

down the left-wing. When she locked up she only had Damons to aim at and

:48:09.:48:13.

five Australia were there, South Africa will need to commit numbers

:48:14.:48:17.

forward to try and get an outcome. But tried to win the penalty corner

:48:18.:48:21.

and couldn't find the foot. Turn over in the midfield, working

:48:22.:48:30.

together as a unit, Australia. Bone. The unheralded players at the back.

:48:31.:48:38.

McMahon, Kenny across to Flanagan. Strolings strong drive down that

:48:39.:48:41.

right side -- strong drive down that right side.

:48:42.:48:47.

2-0 Australia lead in the first semifinal at the Commonwealth Games

:48:48.:48:55.

2014. Across the field it goes now.

:48:56.:48:57.

Russell. Can she keep the ball? Bright. Gets picked off by Blyth.

:48:58.:49:12.

And Australia once more make the South Africans turn round and pedal

:49:13.:49:16.

back. Look at that. Clever skill.

:49:17.:49:32.

Treasons Deetlefs. -- Deetlefs. Very efficient for South Africa.

:49:33.:49:44.

201 first match, Deetlefs for South Africa. Bright is looking to latch

:49:45.:49:51.

on to it. Neither can Damons. Now, another drive into that circle.

:49:52.:50:06.

Bone for South Africa. For Australia, in fact. Interesting

:50:07.:50:10.

the ploy that South Africa just driving the ball rather than the

:50:11.:50:13.

different way that Australia come through in the one-twos and the

:50:14.:50:19.

interpassing. Australia pick their moments, when there is space they

:50:20.:50:23.

are happy to drive and take the one-on-one, when it's a congested

:50:24.:50:26.

circle they are happy to have the one touch player and deflections in

:50:27.:50:31.

and round the circle. The ball again, in the worrying the

:50:32.:50:39.

South African defence, but the tackle wasn't as good that time.

:50:40.:50:55.

Soft hands. Then the captain... Now Australia

:50:56.:51:17.

through Taylor. Can Taylor keep it in for Australia?

:51:18.:51:35.

She does, and lifts the ball. Australia searching for more to hurt

:51:36.:51:38.

the South African, they are 2-0 ahead. The feeling the sting has

:51:39.:51:45.

gone out of it a bit. The read head-to-head competitiveness with

:51:46.:51:49.

those... Excellent goals by Australia. Terblanche. You can see

:51:50.:52:00.

South Africa attacking Australia and Australia hitting them on the

:52:01.:52:05.

counter attack. Under Fife minutes in the first 35

:52:06.:52:13.

minute spell. He isn't writing too much down on that note pad, Adam

:52:14.:52:19.

Commons, for Australia. I am sure all the analysis is going on higher

:52:20.:52:25.

up in the stands at the National Hockey Centre at Glasgow. Terblanche

:52:26.:52:37.

off loads. Du Plessis. Bone.

:52:38.:52:55.

Terblanche wins the contest on this occasion, into the affected third. A

:52:56.:53:04.

penalty corner. Deliberate infringement. Jayde Taylor walk back

:53:05.:53:11.

to the half way line for Australia. It is a great step up by Terblanche.

:53:12.:53:15.

The fact that Taylor is trying to come in her right hand only on the

:53:16.:53:19.

stick, probably meant there was only going to be one outcome which is a

:53:20.:53:24.

stick tackle. Fortunate that it is just a penalty corner. But if South

:53:25.:53:27.

Africa could get one back before half-time it will give them a huge

:53:28.:53:32.

boost and give the coach an opportunity to get the girls

:53:33.:53:43.

together at half-time. Diabetes lech at the top. --

:53:44.:53:48.

diabetes level at the top. A very efficient yellow machine at back. --

:53:49.:53:50.

diabetes lech. How hard to drag down, they still

:53:51.:54:01.

have the ball an excellent tackle by the player coming on, who was there

:54:02.:54:06.

for Australia. It was Claxton, had just into the game and got low and

:54:07.:54:12.

made the tackle. Australia have done their homework on South African

:54:13.:54:15.

penalty corner, they are running a low box, the two runner, the

:54:16.:54:19.

defensive unit is only going to the penalty shot. They are allog it to

:54:20.:54:24.

come from the top. They are protecting the areas round Rachel

:54:25.:54:27.

Lynch. -- allowing it.

:54:28.:54:32.

Expert analysis coming from former England and Great Britain interings

:54:33.:54:42.

that over 250 caps, Mel Clewlow. -- international.

:54:43.:54:48.

Flanagan for Australia. Up and over it goes.

:54:49.:55:01.

A minute-and-a-half. For South Africa to get something. Australia

:55:02.:55:09.

have looked a much better finishing side, the more smooth oiled unit as

:55:10.:55:12.

they again bring their ball forward. Mayne, for South Africa. Has

:55:13.:55:30.

Terblanche steaming for the ball. Davids.

:55:31.:55:50.

Bright. Mayne. Drives it in. And again,

:55:51.:56:00.

Kenny so tall and strong, gets her country out of trouble in that deep

:56:01.:56:16.

defensive area. Coat levels -- diabetes levels

:56:17.:56:22.

caught it with one hand on top stick. -- Deetlevs. Ten seconds on

:56:23.:56:30.

the clock for the first half. They got the call, and it is driven

:56:31.:56:38.

in by Bone, look at that, erready, the hooter goes as Georgia gets off

:56:39.:56:44.

the deck, looking to get another touch, but it has been an efficient

:56:45.:56:49.

performance, electrifying at times from South Africa, and Australia, it

:56:50.:56:54.

is Australia, with the advantage and rightly so, they go to the half-time

:56:55.:56:57.

break, in this all-important semifinal. It is Australia 2, South

:56:58.:57:02.

Africa 0. Well, prematch the South Africans

:57:03.:57:06.

were worried are about the energy and pace of the Australians and they

:57:07.:57:09.

are struggling to get into this game, coverage continues on the Red

:57:10.:57:15.

Button of that semifinal. Right. Let us show you what happened in the

:57:16.:57:21.

pool in Edinburgh a short time ago. More medals from Team England in the

:57:22.:57:27.

men's 3 metre synchronised Springboard final. The real success

:57:28.:57:30.

Nick Robinson-Baker and Freddie Woodward, stepping up to win the

:57:31.:57:34.

bronze ahead of the Malaysian pair. Many congratulations to them. In the

:57:44.:57:48.

over to BBC Three to follow that match and it is 1-0 to Scotland

:57:49.:57:51.

after the first end. So, there we are. That is at

:57:52.:58:03.

Kelvingrove. I am going to take you to the hydrobecause some of the

:58:04.:58:07.

world class athletes across the river performed remarkably well, and

:58:08.:58:10.

more gold medals for England and Scotland, and we expect more of the

same this afternoon, so good afternoon to Beth Tweddle alongside

:58:15.:58:24.

Matt Baker. PROBLEM WITH SOUND

:58:25.:58:47.

. I am sorry, we have a few sound prisons there, we can't hear Matt

:58:48.:58:52.

and Beth. But we will sort that out for this afternoon, we have lots of

:58:53.:58:57.

action for you in gymnastics, let me point you in the direction of the

:58:58.:59:01.

boxing, we have terrific fights at the SECC. Michaela Walsh is taking

:59:02.:59:11.

on the Indian competitor. Olympic champion Nicola Adam has been

:59:12.:59:16.

imperious in her two bouts so far. McFadden of Scotland takes on

:59:17.:59:21.

Australia's Maloney, McFadden has won a legionen of fans, we are on

:59:22.:59:27.

the right picture, pure box office stuff, the Olympic bronze medallist

:59:28.:59:30.

Michael Conlan of Northern Ireland will be taking on the defending

:59:31.:59:36.

champion Sean McGoldrick, that will be a terrific bout. England's Kes is

:59:37.:59:49.

in action. Right, that is it from us for now,

:59:50.:59:58.

but we will be back on BBC Two. We will see you in a few seconds, bifor

:59:59.:00:00.
