synchro at least, both well executed. Eights maybe on the
execution. Well done those two. Talking about a massive chasm
opening up between the last round and this. Some gap as we come. 35
points between England and Australia.
It looks like four into three, which doesn't go, quite. With two trying
to avoid the bottom position. Including this pair, Ahmad Azman and
Ooi Tze Liang of Malaysia, reverse three-and-a-half somersault with
tuck. It's a big one. 3.5 on this one.
Oh, there you go. Right. So that was the bogey dive for team Malaysia,
and that I both have blown it slightly, Azman making a big
mistake, I didn't think this was his dive. The Commonwealth champion
doing a good job. That throws it wide-open. So Robinson-Baker and
Freddie Woodward will find themselves in bronze medal at the
end of this round. This is the penultimate round as we move into
six of six. We could see two medals for Team England. We will see the
caption come up. It makes good reading from an England perspective.
Not so much for can the and New Zealand. England are inferred.
Canada, New Zealand and Malaysia, ten points between England and two
and Canada. -- in two. The last round of the men's three
metre synchronised springboard. England have a sizeable lead over
Australia, Canada need something big to put pressure on Nick
Robinson-Baker in third place. No pressure coming from the Canadians.
They reversed two and a half in the pike position. Maxim Bouchard going
to early. He hits the water and he slips away. Slips away from the
medal podium. Not to be today for Maxim Bouchard and Ryan McCormack.
Good effort. A score of three pretty much throughout. It was not to be
for them today. England have one more dive. If they do that
adequately, they will be on the medals. As these two should be, they
are second. 0.4 is the tariff. 257 macro in the 55 -- in the pike
position. That is a medal for sure for Australia. They are putting the
pressure still and Chris Mears and Jack Laugher. 257 macro, and they
have smashed it. Good work, they will get over 80, that is their best
dive. Anywhere near 404 a total is a big score. That will extinguish the
chances of England getting the silver medal. And we have got
Freddie Woodward and Nick Robinson-Baker yet.
Jack Laugher and Chris Mears still at the forefront of our thoughts.
New Zealand's next. Trying to avoid being bottom. Scrapping with
Malaysia. 257 macro for Liam Stone and Fengyang Li. Two twists. That
was unsynchronised from the word go. Spinning and twisting at different
times, hitting the water at different times. So very different.
The marks will be low on the synchronisation. 4.5, 5.5 and 4.5
for synchronisation. For very different, that is not very good!
They are a makeshift pair so they have done well considering they have
been thrown together. It was not there for the most part. Now for the
bronze medal. Freddie Woodward and Nick Robinson-Baker have a tricky
last dive. Inward three and half somersaults. 94 would take them
second. Get in the '80s and they will get the bronze. I knew it was
going to be like that, I have been watching it in training and this is
their most difficult dive and if they get it right, they will be in
contention. They have almost got it right, I am not sure if that will be
good enough to hold off Malaysia. Hopefully they have a big enough
lead. An agonising wait now. Relatively good synchronisation but
they do get punished by the judges because of poor execution. Will that
be good enough for a medal? I can as good as guarantee that they are in
bronze medal position. good as guarantee that they are in
They are in silver medal position because these two have not gone yet.
If they get in the high for hundreds, Chris Mears and Jack
Laugher... That was a dive that Jack Laugher missed yesterday. The 3.8,
forward for and a half somersaults in the tuck position, a big dive to
finish on. It was not their best but because of the -- but because of the
degree of difficulty -- difficulty in synchronisation, they are
Commonwealth Gold medallists. They have not just won it by a small
margin but by just about 28 points. Over Australia. High risk, not quite
executed the way they wanted. But good enough to get them the Gold
medal. The Malaysians could just overtake England here. To do that
and to steal the bronze medal away, they need 80.46, to take it from
Nick Robinson-Baker and Freddie Woodward. And they will still the
bronze medal from England as well. That will not be good enough for a
medal, not today anyway. Malaysia, made up of the Commonwealth champion
in the individual and his partner, Ahmad Amsyar, further stuff from us.
That is a good dive but they will finish fourth on the leader us -- on
the leaderboard. -- the furthest from us. So Team England get bronze
and Gold, silver Australia. A big margin between them. 39 points
between Australia and England as well. A lot of smiles and happy
faces. Two medals for England, a Gold medal for Jack Laugher and
Chris Mears. The England coach is happy, Nick Robinson-Baker, Freddie
Woodward is happy. They are all happy. Those
Woodward is happy. They are all supporters of the boys. Double Gold
now for Jack. One metre, three metre synchronisation, and let's not
overlook the matter of a small silver in the individual. A little
bit of work to do yet, boy! It makes good leading for England. -- it
looks good for England. Matthew Mitcham and Grant Nel get the
silver, another silver format -- for Matthew Mitcham. England also in
third place. That was quite a competition. We expected coming in
that Jack and Chris were the favourites, but when you have
Matthew Mitcham, the ten metre champion from Beijing in 2008, he
has got pedigree and if he can call it off and Grant Nel has shown he is
a useful competitor, it was not guaranteed. Of course. There are no
guarantees in any sport, especially diving where every dive counts. Even
though Jack and Chris will be disappointed with their final dive,
they had enough of a lead to secure victory. The Australians were a bit
closer, maybe it would have been more pressure, so that was exciting
from start to finish. The real success was the second English team
of Nick Robinson-Baker and 19-year-old Freddie Woodward from
Sheffield, stepping up and standing on the podium and beating Malaysia
who were very strong. And the Canadians were in it until the last
dive. So nobody doing a fault list list of dives -- faultless list. So
things can go wrong slightly. Nick finished fifth in the Olympics in
2012 in the synchronisation which was really impressive. He has missed
a lot of this year, a lot of it through choice. He has taken a
break. And it is difficult to pick-up and start diving at this
calibre straightaway without a lot of backing. He has been working hard
with the coaches in Sheffield. He has been paired with Freddie
Woodward, a New York superstar of the future at 19. Nick is the grand
old age of 27, the grandad of the team almost, he will not mind me
saying that. What a great performance. He decided he still
wanted to be competing and he has worked hard and he has a
Commonwealth bronze medal. These are the winning English pair with Helen.
I wish they were with me they are in action with that faultless dive.
This place erupted for Jack and Chris. I have a lot of their family
here supporting them. -- they have. I love him being called grandad, he
might have gone to get his Zimmer frame, he has not come to ask yet!
Congratulations -- congratulations to Team England, a Gold and a
bronze, they are milking get in celebrating and rightly so. As soon
as they come at this lovely barrier, I will grab them. -- they compat. It
is just me for the moment. That is Malaysia. -- as soon as they,
passed. I will give you a shout. I have no doubt you will get them as
soon as you can. Fantastic result for Team England in the first of
today's diving finals, they have a Gold and a bronze. We might be able
to go back to the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh because she might
have found them! I certainly have, congratulations.
Double Commonwealth champions, how do you feel? Amazing, it has been
really strange, a roller-coaster. To come here with my best mate and get
my first one metre Gold medal, it is amazing, I could not be happier. We
have heard a lot of about your romance, what does this mean? It
means everything. We spend so much time at home, professionally and
socially. We are such close friends and to come here and to smash it
like we wanted to was amazing. Especially earlier, a couple of days
ago, I was so close to the bronze and I missed out by five, six points
and I was gutted so to get a Gold and to do what I knew I could was
fantastic. Join in. Nick Robinson-Baker, Freddie Woodward,
congratulations, your first Commonwealth, what do you make of
it? Incredible experience, such a fun competition. Nerves and
excitement that I have had a great time and I am happy with bronze.
Everybody was saying that the divers were really fun, you guys were
having a storm yesterday, no nerves. Not for me, I am old, I'm 27, I had
been doing it a long time. These guys have set the standard, it is
the Commonwealth Games, we are here, we are loving it. You have been
nicknamed the grandad! I will have a word about that, don't you worry!
You said yesterday you were going to rip it up and you delivered, did you
feel pressure? There is always pressure, especially here in last
night was a disappointment is not putting in a great performance but
me and Chris wanted to nail it today and we put in a good performance,
and we are really happy. I know we are really happy! Ace -- is it a
sign of things to come to Brazil? Definitely, we have a lot of
preparation up to Rio de Janeiro but this is the first year of
synchronisation and we are happy. this is the first year of
synchronisation and we are I look forward to hearing what happens in
your celebrations! Thank you. Knowing laughter. It will not be out
partying yet they deserve to raise the roof somewhere. They stick
together now to see their team-mates dive tonight and tomorrow. For now
they can enjoy themselves and they will be at the bulls eye to
tomorrow. -- and they will lead by the nine dive moral.
A great start and so fascinating to see the relationship between the two
divers. -- and they will lead by the swimming pool tomorrow.
And there is still the men's synchronised ten metre platform
final. News now this morning that the teenage Nigerian weightlifter G,
Lara who -- has now tested positive in a key test and will face a
hearing in front of the Commonwealth Games panel. She became the youngest
ever female to win a weightlifting title at a Commonwealth Games. That
is how it is ending. Earlier, we were following the dramatic Gold
medal match in the women's pairs at the lawn bowls and England lost in
an extra end. These are the English women getting their silver medals.
They also spoke to ours. They are getting silver medals, the Gold went
to South Africa. -- they also spoke to us.
I Nat I will I know you are emotional at the moment. But you
must be proud of what was fabulous match and what turned out to be a
dramatic end? Right now I am not proud. I am gutted. But you know we
have a silver medal and I think if we knew we were going to get that we
would have been pleased, so obviously it is disappointing, the
girls played a great game. Missed it be the smallest of margin, sometimes
I think it is not meant to be. That is what happens to be. I suppose the
fact is you had the opportunities, and that I imagine makes it harder
to swallow. Yes, definitely, but Nat played a great bowl to push it into
the extra end. I enjoyed playing with Nat. It has been a great
experience. Hope from I in the future we can do better. You are two
fresh faced babes of bowl, hopfully you will have many more games to
play. This is the first time we have played at elite level together. To
come away with the silver it is amazing, the partnership has got
better. I am 25, Jamie Lee is 23. The longevity of the sport will
allow us to continue as long as we want. Four years time is the goal
post. We will look forward to that and go for another gold, hopefully,
or a gold rather. And overall, England team has a lot to be proud
of, the way they have competed. A gold medal, silvers. Our boys are
playing later so they will go for gold. Even has a medal so we are
over the moon to come away with something. A couple of silvers for
you Natalie. So lots to be something. A couple of silvers for
you Natalie. So lots to proud of and I am sure you are not feeling it now
but a lot of people are proud of you The support has been amazing,
Glasgow has been amaze, it has been a great games and we will look to
cheer or boys on. Congratulations, well played. Thank you very much.
Also in the lawn bowls the drama in the pairs bronze medal match was
just as great. Northern Ireland's Manny Cunningham and Barbara Cameron
denied Jersey a first Commonwealth Games medal since 1990. -- Mandy.
Earlier we brought you a glimpse of Paul drink hall's match in the table
tennis against Ryan Jenkins, he did win that game and he goes through to
the quarter-final. He is also playing later on in the men's
doubles and in the mixed doubles, so someone to watch there.
Someone for you to watch is Jason who will look after the afternoon
coverage here on BBC One. I have spent a lot of time watching lawn
bowls. There is no better way to spend the morning, my Commonwealth
Games I spent a lot time watching a Welsh legend called Betty Morgan
winning a medal in Australia. It was terrific. Have you ever played it?
No, I might be tempted now. That is one of the great things about an
event like this. You find yourself watching something you know nothing
about and you get into it What you need to do is get on the website,
get inspired and find your local club. Good to see you. Thank you.
Enjoy the rest of your day. A good afternoon to you, welcome to Glasgow
and the afternoon session of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, this is
what is coming up for you this afternoon.
We are into the last four of women's hockey. Can South Africa overpower
the mighty Australia? We have got boxing for you. Nicola Adams
continues her quest for Commonwealth gold, taking on Dan in the women's
flyweight. Scotland's Kirstie Gilmore, into the last eight of the
women's singles. She takes on New Zealand.
And the gymnastics continue at the hydro. Max Whitlock may need a
bigger bag when leaves Glasgow. It is the men's parallel bars final.
As ever, lots of live action for you on BBC Three, you can watch some
terrific squash, the men's doubles taking place over on BBC Three right
now. On the red butt top, as Michelle
said table tennis. The men's doubles semifinals. On the website, there is
some chap by the name of Usain Bolt going in the four by 100 metre relay
heats tonight. You may have heard of him! A big night there. You can
follow the action on the website. All the sports live on the website.
First today, we have reached the last four of the women's hockey, and
there is real heavy weight flavour to the semifinals, at Glasgow Green.
Take a look at this line up. This is it. Women's semifinals, England
taking on New Zealand, that is round 2.30 at Glasgow Green. Into the last
four after that final match win over Scotland. The semifinals have just
got under way, Australia led by Adam Commons taking on South Africa.
So South Africa against Australia is just under way, the Safins finished
ninth at the 2014 World Cup. -- south Africans, they have won four
of the three Commonwealth titles to date. These are live picture, the
game is just under way. Let us pop there now and join our commentary
team. A big raking drive down through the
field and falls to Australia, again, they come in number, into the spot
the only person there together at for South Africa. Russell.
She is surrounded by outstanding Australian captain Madonna Blyth.
Flanagan and Georgie Parker. Bobs. The under push pass, out of
defence and cuts out Marcia Cox. Nelson, and this is Bright on the
ball for South Africa. Blyth. You won't see her
dispossessed of the ball. Russell. The captain, can't bring the ball in
for South Africa. Again they are pouring pressure on. The ability to
have Easton with over 200 caps and Blyth nearing 300 caps in the middle
of the field. It brings experience to the side and allows the younger
plays to play-off them. So again, Smith worrying the south
African defence. Just 21 years of age. Here she is,
with the headband, for Australia. Taylor.
Easily sweep across the pitch from Flanagan. Across to right for South
Africa. Smith can't bring the ball round, where she was looking, to
hit. And Russell. Now Taylor again. Just over half way. Now Taylor for
Australia. The warning has gone out, to South
Africa. To tidy it up, the tackling. Bone. Hard-working, tireless worker,
Edwina Bone. Let us look what they put on
Australia. Now, just outside the line. Now, dangerous. Australia love
to put pressure on the defensive unit of a team, for the whole game,
but the first 20 minutes, in particular, they really press high.
Don't give you any time on the ball. If you can weather that storm you
feel you are in with a chance to the end of each half. This Coston for
South Africa. Looking for that free hit. They will give it. Look at the
angle. Still with South Africa. And confidently, and clinically, out of
the Australian defence. Then it is gone.
Again, another absolutely hard-working player for Australia.
Good control coming out of the South African defence but not Flanagan.
She intercepts. Flanagan, opts to go back this time.
A strong tackle there and a little click out of there.
Umpires needing to work together because it is very fast, skill, and
the lit touches are important to get right -- the little touches are
important to get right. One-two from South Africa. To blanch. -- Blanch.
Whenever South Africa have possession of the ball. Australia
literally giving them a four to five yard channel out wide. Nothing
through the middle and it is something that South Africa are
going to have to look at, trying to breakthrough the Australian press
and try and get the ball to the other side.
To Blanch. We can hear the big thud as the ball hits the shin pad. Bobs.
Semifinal hockey at Glasgow, 2014, and a back flip was expertly brought
down. Tackling in numbers, this is a card.
The warning went out. Celia Evans is being penalised for the stick
tackle. It is probably the third one the South Africans have put in the
opening ten minutes and they have been warned. I don't think Sarah
Wilson was really given any other option.
Right across the other side of the field, forcing the player to motor.
Main. And we know how aggressively Jade Main plays the game. She got a
very explosive and aggressive player for South Africa. So just over ten
minutes gone in the first half. Australia had the early
opportunities through the potent penalty corner, that could not get
the ball in the back of the net. This is Main.
Nelson with the headband as well for Australia.
Chamberlain. Dangerous goal score scorer for South Africa. She has got
seven already. Now slips the ball into South
Africa, across the face. Deep breaths for South Africa now.
It is good by South Africa. Winning the free hit and trying to take it
quickly, but I would like to see them go to the other side the field.
Main gets it back and she will get the free hit. The ball into the
circle. Africa. Interesting differences in the rotations. The
two coaches have operated differently at the, most Games.
Australia are always have a high rotation -- at the Commonwealth
Games. That is why they stay at this intensity. They had used 313
substitutes at the start of this game, their opponents used 180. At
some point, the way Australia like to play could take its toll on South
Africa. Fascinating statistic as South Africa look to make progress.
Marsha Cox finds the opposition skipper.
Russell playing a more midfield position in this match. Certainly
against New Zealand, she was a high running striker. Her coach is using
her in a different role. Edwina Bone. Bright gets it. A shot at
goal... An opportunity for South Africa.
This is the counter attack from Smith.
Going back to the New Zealand game, the thought process for the
coach... That is Flanagan. Chamberlain was certainly around to
add to her tally and that was good play by South Africa. Actively New
Zealand game, the thought process from the coach would be different to
this which is that if you can be New Zealand, the chances are you'll you
will miss -- the chances are that he will miss Australia in the
crossover. He is going for a more defensive role knowing how Australia
can play. -- you will mess. Flanagan. But tussle. Well earned by
South Africa. You can see the structure South
Africa have. Accurate passing at the moment. Taylor is called.
This is Smith again for Australia. Bright is back with one hand on the
stick and she gets the pass away. Russell.
Great to see the South African back, she took a fearsome blow in one of
the previous matches. Flanagan. 17 minutes gone in the first spell of
the semifinal here in Glasgow. A loose ball into the centre and goal
number one for Australia. Emily Smith has added to her tally, that
is her fourth goal for Australia. She opens the scoring. Fantastic
advantage by the umpire. A speculative ball through is played,
great run by Smith. It is a split finish. The backswing gives shorter
and it gives the goalkeeper less reaction time. Often we see those
balls go over the bar. Great for South Africa. Another save made.
Rachel Lynch in goal for Australia was the goalkeeper at the recent
World Cup. She was named goalkeeper of the World Cup. She has not had a
lot of work in this campaign but she is the best in the world at the
moment. A lot of talk around this Commonwealth Games campaign about
how dominant the penalty corners have been for Australia but look at
that from that field goal. Proving that variety in the play...
Bright catches up. She drags it through. She is still going. But at
her speed. Difficult... A penalty corner, she thought it had snuck
between the goalkeeper. South Africa are in a penalty corner through Tara
bright. It has got to be a disappointing trap here. She takes
her eye off the ball and it hits on the shin pad. -- it hits her. Good
to see South Africa back in the game, not sitting back and allowing
Australia to pressurise them. I imagine number 13 will have a big
part to play for South Africa. All set now.
Across the face of Lynch. The umpire has to link the ball as well. Damons
drives into the circle. One of the best players in the world, Blyth.
The pressure goes on. Russell... Again, brave defending. Look how
fast Australia now counter attack. Intercepted. This is a young player
in the South African line-up, just 20 years of age. Bobbs. She has
grown through this campaign. Great eye, as she brings the ball
through. She still gets it away. All number two. There is a deflection.
It is Kelli White who gets on top of that shot.
She turns that inside out and it is across the goal which is a trait of
Australian hockey. Awkward to make the trap and white just nips in
front. 2-0 to Australia. -- Kelli White. The goal-scorer getting a
foot in and from nothing, Australia are now up. They have worked their
way into the game, they have waited for their opportunities. Early
penalty corners did not come off but the field certainly have. -- the
field goals. Into the circle. They had the players.
Again, through Peris. At. She, South Africa. -- at. She, South Africa. --
they are at. In the, South Africa. Adam Commons, the Australian coach,
will be very happy with how his side have executed... Flanagan. That
cross came from Georgina Parker and she has scored five goals in
Glasgow. Great delivery, she hit the ball cleanly and with pace. Kelli
White dived on the far post but she was beaten by the pace of the ball.
Neatly touched on. Bright has great touches. A shot at goal across. And
at the goal. Saved by Flanagan. What a save!
South Africa not taking up the invitation from the -- from the
umpire for a referral. Great play. Chamberlain with the reverse stick
effort and it was Flanagan on the line. Lynch was quite lucky. I did
think she momentarily put her glove over the ball, which prevented South
Africa getting it out. Bobbs. Across the circle. A shout at
goal. Penalty corner. Might be a referral here.
Penalty corner awarded to South Africa!
The referral has gone upstairs. This is what we are looking for. Edwina
Bone has a case here, she makes a case here. Bright may have come over
the top to win the ball. She possibly one it cleanly. If the
umpire has heard a stick tackle, it is more -- it is not for Edwina
Bone. This looks to be a very good referral from Australia. We will
wait for the outcome. There is no stick tackle in the circle for
restart. Australia retain their referral. Thank you.
So the referral by Australia has been upheld.
Casey Eastham WinZip. She is away! -- she wins it. Peris awaits the
ball, clever control. Very smooth when Peris gets the ball, great
control, and a long corner. Flanagan.
ball. It is East Ham now who is bursting through the left channel.
What a perfect pass and it could have been any two Australians that
latched on to that for another penalty corner for Australia.
Turning the heat on, South Africa, in the semifinal.
GbK Gb It was a wonderful lead by Smith. Parker managed to pick it up.
: On to the foot Be have 15, come on, let's go. Half way, please.
Eastham. She will walk into this and Kenny... Kenny it is again, oh, and
what a save. Marais, a very good eye on this post for South Africa, but
it is not finished yet. Here is Kenny, drives into the circle,
hoping to catch a team-mate's stick. Down it goes, it is sill in the
field of play. An opportunity down the left flank for South Africa.
And still on the stick of the South African Bright can't get a stick on
it. That opened it up, and, a very efficient exit for Australia.
Australian coach Commons. It is a great turn of speed by Kath Taylor
down the left-wing. When she locked up she only had Damons to aim at and
five Australia were there, South Africa will need to commit numbers
forward to try and get an outcome. But tried to win the penalty corner
and couldn't find the foot. Turn over in the midfield, working
together as a unit, Australia. Bone. The unheralded players at the back.
McMahon, Kenny across to Flanagan. Strolings strong drive down that
right side -- strong drive down that right side.
2-0 Australia lead in the first semifinal at the Commonwealth Games
2014. Across the field it goes now.
Russell. Can she keep the ball? Bright. Gets picked off by Blyth.
And Australia once more make the South Africans turn round and pedal
back. Look at that. Clever skill.
Treasons Deetlefs. -- Deetlefs. Very efficient for South Africa.
201 first match, Deetlefs for South Africa. Bright is looking to latch
on to it. Neither can Damons. Now, another drive into that circle.
Bone for South Africa. For Australia, in fact. Interesting
the ploy that South Africa just driving the ball rather than the
different way that Australia come through in the one-twos and the
interpassing. Australia pick their moments, when there is space they
are happy to drive and take the one-on-one, when it's a congested
circle they are happy to have the one touch player and deflections in
and round the circle. The ball again, in the worrying the
South African defence, but the tackle wasn't as good that time.
Soft hands. Then the captain... Now Australia
through Taylor. Can Taylor keep it in for Australia?
She does, and lifts the ball. Australia searching for more to hurt
the South African, they are 2-0 ahead. The feeling the sting has
gone out of it a bit. The read head-to-head competitiveness with
those... Excellent goals by Australia. Terblanche. You can see
South Africa attacking Australia and Australia hitting them on the
counter attack. Under Fife minutes in the first 35
minute spell. He isn't writing too much down on that note pad, Adam
Commons, for Australia. I am sure all the analysis is going on higher
up in the stands at the National Hockey Centre at Glasgow. Terblanche
off loads. Du Plessis. Bone.
Terblanche wins the contest on this occasion, into the affected third. A
penalty corner. Deliberate infringement. Jayde Taylor walk back
to the half way line for Australia. It is a great step up by Terblanche.
The fact that Taylor is trying to come in her right hand only on the
stick, probably meant there was only going to be one outcome which is a
stick tackle. Fortunate that it is just a penalty corner. But if South
Africa could get one back before half-time it will give them a huge
boost and give the coach an opportunity to get the girls
together at half-time. Diabetes lech at the top. --
diabetes level at the top. A very efficient yellow machine at back. --
diabetes lech. How hard to drag down, they still
have the ball an excellent tackle by the player coming on, who was there
for Australia. It was Claxton, had just into the game and got low and
made the tackle. Australia have done their homework on South African
penalty corner, they are running a low box, the two runner, the
defensive unit is only going to the penalty shot. They are allog it to
come from the top. They are protecting the areas round Rachel
Lynch. -- allowing it.
Expert analysis coming from former England and Great Britain interings
that over 250 caps, Mel Clewlow. -- international.
Flanagan for Australia. Up and over it goes.
A minute-and-a-half. For South Africa to get something. Australia
have looked a much better finishing side, the more smooth oiled unit as
they again bring their ball forward. Mayne, for South Africa. Has
Terblanche steaming for the ball. Davids.
Bright. Mayne. Drives it in. And again,
Kenny so tall and strong, gets her country out of trouble in that deep
defensive area. Coat levels -- diabetes levels
caught it with one hand on top stick. -- Deetlevs. Ten seconds on
the clock for the first half. They got the call, and it is driven
in by Bone, look at that, erready, the hooter goes as Georgia gets off
the deck, looking to get another touch, but it has been an efficient
performance, electrifying at times from South Africa, and Australia, it
is Australia, with the advantage and rightly so, they go to the half-time
break, in this all-important semifinal. It is Australia 2, South
Africa 0. Well, prematch the South Africans
were worried are about the energy and pace of the Australians and they
are struggling to get into this game, coverage continues on the Red
Button of that semifinal. Right. Let us show you what happened in the
pool in Edinburgh a short time ago. More medals from Team England in the
men's 3 metre synchronised Springboard final. The real success
Nick Robinson-Baker and Freddie Woodward, stepping up to win the
bronze ahead of the Malaysian pair. Many congratulations to them. In the
lawn bowls the match between Scotland and England in the men's
fours is coming up very very soon. All under way at Kelvingrove, switch
over to BBC Three to follow that match and it is 1-0 to Scotland
after the first end. So, there we are. That is at
Kelvingrove. I am going to take you to the hydrobecause some of the
world class athletes across the river performed remarkably well, and
more gold medals for England and Scotland, and we expect more of the
same this afternoon, so good afternoon to Beth Tweddle alongside
Matt Baker. PROBLEM WITH SOUND
. I am sorry, we have a few sound prisons there, we can't hear Matt
and Beth. But we will sort that out for this afternoon, we have lots of
action for you in gymnastics, let me point you in the direction of the
