but evening. it's been another unseasonably warm day for many but not quite everyone. central and southern parts of the uk have seen temperatures up to 23 degrees, but in shetland, despite some sunshine, we were languishing at 10 degrees this afternoon because of this cold air that blew down from the north. however, that is not a sign of things to come because over the next few days, the orange colours win out, and they will be warm conditions for the time of year. with that, quite a lot of cloud and splashes of rain. some spots of drizzle, some misty and murky conditions for western scotland and northern ireland, perhaps the north west of england by the end of the night. some clear spells in the south and east allowing it to get a little bit chilly, but for most it is a mild start tomorrow, particularly where there's lots of cloud. some of that getting down into wales, always with the potential for the odd spot of rain.
quite windy across the northern half of the uk, but to the east of scotland with shelter from the breeze, temperatures will do quite nicely, 21 degrees in the sunshine. sunny spots further south could get to 24. for saturday, a lot of cloud in the forecast. some sunny breaks, the best of these across northern scotland. a few showers, but again the temperature is above where they should be for the time of year. then we get into sunday, we see this frontal system trying to squeeze in from the west, ahead of it that will strengthen the winds so quite a warm feel to the weather. some showers, some rain into northern ireland later. still one for the time of year. it does turn cooler next week. ben, thank you. that's all from the bbc news at six, so it's goodbye from me
hello and welcome to sportsday — i'm jane dougall. will team your burt's camera battery be enough to overcome a strong american line—up on us soil? countdown to the opening ceremony of the ryder cup is on. countdown to the opening ceremony of the ryder cup is on. question marks over the ashes as some england players consider pulling out. the aussie prime minister says he won't bend strict covid travel rules for families. we don't talk any more — wayne won't walk away but says the lack of communication from the derby county owner is disrespectful. on a one—on—one conversation i had, still haven't had that, no phone call no message, and i have put a lot also coming up in the programme... world rugby... he helped to a championship but
after a diagnosis with dementia looking into the research of trauma and sports. looking into the research of trauma and sports. and antonyjoshua puts his belts on the line as he faces off against 0leksandr usyk ahead of theirfight in london on saturday. hello and welcome to sportsday. it's been three years long, and the rivalry between europe and the usa may have lain dormant, but it is ready to be re—ignigted. it is the eve of the 43rd ryder cup and — despite america being the favourites on paper — you can never rule out the defending champions europe, particularly with their impressive track record. the home crowds in wisconsin will be chanting theirfamiliar u.s.a, but the visitors say they won't be intimidated.
ben croucher has been looking at how europe have fared in america on previous trips. when chasing your dreams do you see the bigger picture orjust the silhouette? do you see the prize of the quest for that success, do you feel the failures, do you live every shot, replaying it over and over and over again? shot, replaying it over and over and overagain? his shot, replaying it over and over and over again?— over again? his mystic, his mystic, can ou over again? his mystic, his mystic, can you believe _ over again? his mystic, his mystic, can you believe it... _ over again? his mystic, his mystic, can you believe it. .. better- over again? his mystic, his mystic, can you believe it... better or - over again? his mystic, his mystic, can you believe it... better or for l can you believe it... better or for worse? this _ can you believe it... better or for worse? this is — can you believe it... better or for worse? this is a _ can you believe it... better or for worse? this is a rivalry _ can you believe it... better or for worse? this is a rivalry that - worse? this is a rivalry that borders on revelry where the contest are defined by the years but by the chairs, their tears. and just how hail or wind tee shot on the 18th ended up on the fairway. 1999 the perfect pot. it subsequent stampede
and made jose perfect pot. it subsequent stampede and madejose maria start to play. and then there is the miracle of mixed tyner with postman poulter who always delivers. sunday's singles carried by the spirit of the studies are in europe come from behind to turn history on its head. yes. are in europe come from behind to turn history on its head.— turn history on its head. yes, he started, that's _ turn history on its head. yes, he started, that's quite _ turn history on its head. yes, he i started, that's quite remarkable... the ryder— started, that's quite remarkable... the ryder cup in america has infinity for the astonishing. and in recent years some european success two. the last ten stateside have been shared. if you can't hear them by their first see tomorrow as assigned cracks beyond the horizon you knowjust what's at assigned cracks beyond the horizon you know just what's at stake, assigned cracks beyond the horizon you knowjust what's at stake, you know exactly where you are. usa! usa! what a rich history this competition has.
the lineups for friday's foursomes will be revealed in the opening ceremony later tonight. on paper, the americans may have a better pedigree in terms of world ranking, but there's a great deal more experience in the europe team. andy swiss is in wisconsin for us, andy, will that experience be the difference for europe to defend their title? certainly that experience will come in very handy. you're have players who know how to win the ryder cup and also they know how to win it on american soil. 0bviously what happened in my dyna back in 2012. the likes of ian poulter, rc erica was making his record 11th ryder cup appearance they have this fantastic check to my track record in the ryder cup of the recent years was up they won four out of the last five. as for the us, on paper it is a relatively inexperienced team in terms of the ryder cup. if that half of the entire team, six of the 12 players are making their ryder cup debuts. but they will argue that
thatis debuts. but they will argue that that is a good thing because these are players who haven't been scarred by their recent run of defeats. 0n by their recent run of defeats. on paper you have to say they are a very strong outfit. eight out of the world top ten players, they have the likes of maura cowell who won the open championship earlier in the summer, johnson the world number two. while they don't have perhaps the ryder cup experience that writer did not hear about the us will feel that in the light of what happened over the last decade or so, that's possibly not a bad thing. europe are well known of course for their camaraderie, in contrast, there's been reports of a rift in the us team, what do you know about that? there has always been this perception that the us find the team element of the ryder cup. a little trickier than europe. they don't find it is easy to bond and certainly there has been this long—standing feud two america star players rice and dish mon brooks kept out. it all started a couple of
years ago when r said that the shamble was taking long overtaking each of his shots. it kind of escalated from there, this war of words between the two. they've been keen to try and play it down in the build—up to this ryder cup but it was interesting to from the earlier today when he was asked about his relationship with bryson to share about the said we are on the same team together, everyone who is on our team is interacting and everyone is participating in conversations and doing everything we need to do. which doesn't exactly sound like a ringing endorsement of the warmth of their relationship. the american captain said earlier on in the week that it was very unlikely that the two of them would be paired together. which is perhaps no surprise but certainly all eyes will be on those two to see how they fare and how they interact over the next three days. and how they interact over the next three da s. , and how they interact over the next three days-— three days. yes, will find out later. three days. yes, will find out later- we _ three days. yes, will find out later. we know _ three days. yes, will find out later. we know that - three days. yes, will find out later. we know that the - three days. yes, will find out i later. we know that the crowds three days. yes, will find out - later. we know that the crowds on the course will definitely be against your cover many of them. but
the course itself might be favourable for the visitors? it may be es favourable for the visitors? it may be yes because — favourable for the visitors? it may be yes because in _ favourable for the visitors? it may be yes because in some _ favourable for the visitors? it may be yes because in some ways - favourable for the visitors? it may be yes because in some ways this| favourable for the visitors? it may i be yes because in some ways this is not your normal american ryder cup course. it's very undulating, lots of hills. we are here on the shores of hills. we are here on the shores of lake michigan. it feels much more like a british style links course. as the name whistling straits suggests the wind really does whistle end. it's been very blustery here over the last few days. and certainly you can imagine the europeans won't be too sad if that blustery condition continue because this is the sort of thing they are used to playing in the likes of the open championship. as you say, they won't have many fancier because of travel restrictions currently in place between europe and the us. we see it reallyjust a sprinkling of european fans. a few on the first see today, we saw a couple of european flags. certainly the european flags. certainly the european players have been keen to try and get the home crowd on site,
they been on something of a offensive over the last few days. we saw the likes of ian poulter interacting with the crowd, they were throwing merchandise and amongst the fans. certainly the home crowd of given them a pretty warm and friendly reception so far. but you suspect that may all change tomorrow when the competition starts. europe know they are right up starts. europe know they are right up against her. they are the holders but they won't be the favourites here. they are the underdogs are up against what is a strong us team and of course a partisan crowd.— of course a partisan crowd. andy, thank you very much. the australian prime minister has said there will be "no special deals" to allow the families of england cricketers to travel for the ashes. some england players are considering pulling out because of australia's strict covid—19 travel protocols. it's after british prime minister boris johnson discussed the issue with scott morrison at a dinner in washington. morrison said...
australia plans to ease restrictions once 80% of adults are vaccinated, morrison says that figure will reach 50% this week. the first test is scheduled to begin on the 8th of december. earlier i spoke to the bbc�*s cricket correspondentjonathan agnew and began by asking him how many players he anticipated might consider pulling out? ifi if i knew that i would be a wealthy man. it's too difficult to say the moment of speaking to a number of players, those without families and those who are facing possibly the last two are quite happy to go. it's a one set of that young children, babies in some case that are going,
are battling at the moment. not with are battling at the moment. not with a conscience, that sounds a bit dramatic but i think you can see the power that the power that players have by the pulling out by the pakistan trip recently because of it just a couple games but that was very much the players who had the say on that. although is put in different way by the board and their press release but the players are very lucky to go and they didn't go. so they do know they have some power to their elbow on this.— to their elbow on this. jonathan, we have talked — to their elbow on this. jonathan, we have talked about _ to their elbow on this. jonathan, we have talked about this _ to their elbow on this. jonathan, we have talked about this in _ to their elbow on this. jonathan, we have talked about this in terms - to their elbow on this. jonathan, we have talked about this in terms of. have talked about this in terms of mental health but how important is it that the players do at that time to step away and spend time with families? i to step away and spend time with families? ~ , ,., ., families? i think it is important. i'm not families? i think it is important. i'm not sure _ families? i think it is important. i'm not sure what _ families? i think it is important. i'm not sure what the _ families? i think it is important. i'm not sure what the general i families? i think it is important. - i'm not sure what the general public think about this question of families. a lot of people have made sacrifices over these last year or so and there are plenty of us who will be going out to australia won't have our families with us and it was never the case in days gone by where families were taken away as they are now. i think the players realise that they wouldn't have a huge amount of support from that
perspective. however, the question of the bio bubble is is it matt put networkable together and there's no doubt it but the two together. and it zeroed out the environment bubbles they have created issues with the players mental health. and it depends, we don't know yet how tight their bubble may be within australia, whether they will be allowed to go out and socialise and move around and live some sort of normal life or whether they will be tightly restricted in their hotels. looking at it for another point of view, could be a great opportunity for some younger players. yes. view, could be a great opportunity for some younger players. yes, it's the ashes- — for some younger players. yes, it's the ashes. this _ for some younger players. yes, it's the ashes. this is _ for some younger players. yes, it's the ashes. this is my _ for some younger players. yes, it's the ashes. this is my worry, - for some younger players. yes, it's the ashes. this is my worry, if - for some younger players. yes, it's the ashes. this is my worry, if i'ml the ashes. this is my worry, if i'm honest, it's about the integrity of the ashes. and the brand, if you like. if this goes ahead and there are a number of england withdrawals and it is not easily organised from the australian perspective, otherwise some states goes he barter to that borders is the code doing not cove slight gains and moves you
cannot crowd, you certainly can of english support is going to it is that in anybody�*s interest really that that should be the way that this ashes should be play? ifor one would say i think not. there must be a case the air force for some sort of negotiation to play the city years time when 0akley all of this is passed and you have got crickets premier test competition being played in eight manner in which it's supposed to be played. well england's women can wrap up their 0d! series against new zealand with a win in derby today — they lead the 5 match series 2—1. englanderjason 245 for victory. dean again impressed with the ball taking three wickets. new zealand were helped to their total thanks to 50s from amy satterthwaite and katie moore send. they are now 138—3 after 32 overs. wayne rooney has said he might not have taken the job at derby county if he had known then
what he knows now. rooney reiterated that he wouldn't walk away from the managers position, despite the club going into administration, but that he still hadn't had a phone call from the owner about the situation. business adviser firm quantuma were put in charge on wednesday, which triggered an automatic 12—point deduction from the english football league. rooney said he found the lack of communication from the owner mel morris disrespectful. 0ne—on—one conversation no phone call, no message. i put a lot of effort into getting these players ready to play for club and i just found it a little bitjust reese back full, if i'm being honest. and that's why it's so important as i'm speaking in terms of the administrators, the communication is so important for the players, for the staff here. and you know the information, know what were looking at and if that's good news or bad news you have to know that so we can
