patchy as of it is fairly light and patchy as it moves across england and wales but there are heavier burst through scotland and yes, some sleet and snow. that frontal system will continue to move eastwards, then a north—westerly wind will kick in during the early hours. it is getting milder but we have one more chilly day to come, so a chilly start with temperatures down to freezing in rural parts of scotland. that north—westerly wind feeding in the showers early on, and some of them quite a wintry mix. some of those showers will run down across northern ireland through the irish sea but there will be a good slice of sunshine. central and southern england dry, settled and sunny. not too one, for 28 degrees largely —— four to eight degrees largely. these weather fronts will be responsible
6:31 pm
for dragging in the milder air. as the wind direction changes to a southerly or a south—westerly, the milder air pushes steadily north through the weekend but it means on saturday a cloudy, grey and damp start. outbreaks of rain moving steadily eastwards. sheltered areas clinging the best of any brightness, so temperatures here not quite as promising, but double figures to the west. the west. the real mild air arrives for all for the second half of the weekend, but again cloudy and damp at times. i prefer the cold and crisp. damp at times. i prefer the cold and cris. ., , ., ~ ,, that's all from the bbc news at six so it's goodbye from me, and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are.
6:32 pm
hello and welcome to sportsday — i'm jane dougall. despondent down under. england flop again, as a travis ton helps australia rack up the runs in brisbane. covid checks at your club. fans will have to prove they've been double—jabbed, or test negative, following new government guidance. plus, "deliberate harrassment and dangerous bullying". jockey robbie dunne is found guilty of targeting bryony frost. also coming up in the programme... he's sitting just ahead of hamilton with more wins,
6:33 pm
but will max verstappen get more points? we'll hear from the red bull team principal, ahead of the last race of the season. it's an amazing thing for formula one, and i'm sure it's probably going to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest sporting event of the year. welcome to the programme. after the embarrassment of the first day of the ashes, england fans might have been hoping a change in the weather would inspire their bowlers to make an impact. but not to be. australia piled on the runs, finishing the second day on 343—7, leading england by 196 runs, and leaving the visitors with an almost impossible task to get anything out of this first test in brisbane.
6:34 pm
for much of the day, australia were in control. david warner and marnus labuschagne both making half centuries. two quick wickets then followed, but travis head took away all english hope, hitting an unbeaten century — it was the third fastest in ashes history. so, not looking good for england, but there was a glimmer of hope, arriving in the form of ollie robinson, who got two wickets in two balls. and fast bowling coachjon lewis insists the match is far from over. i think we understand the game of cricket, and we understand how conditions change, and you have to adapt to the conditions put in front of you. on both days, australia may have got the better of the conditions, but, you know, there are still three days left in this test match, and we have got some very, very fine cricketers in the england cricket team, and, like i said before,
6:35 pm
we're going to come back strong tomorrow. the day belonged to australia's travis head, who's unbeaten on 112, hitting his century off just 85 balls. it's that amazing feeling to get a test match hundred. i think i said to mitchell— test match hundred. i think i said to mitchell starc, as it happened, i couldwt— to mitchell starc, as it happened, i couldn't quite believe what was going _ couldn't quite believe what was going on — couldn't quite believe what was going on. it definitely fell my way at moments today, i rode my luck in parts _ at moments today, i rode my luck in parts but _ at moments today, i rode my luck in parts but all— at moments today, i rode my luck in parts but all in all i was able to put australian a great position and that's_ put australian a great position and that's what i'm here today and i'm very privileged to be able to do that _ so what do england have to do if they're to rescue this test? our cricket correspondent jonathan agnew doesn't think it's possible, but he did insist that england should take pride for never giving up on a hot day in brisbane. he's been speaking to our reporter henry moeran. i think first of all people will look at the scorecard and grimace, but you have got to take your hat off to wood and woakes and robinson for the way they bowled today. their first day in the field since early september and for those who have not done it, let me tell
6:36 pm
you, it is a painful experience. i saw robinson go off with cramp, stokes appeared to have jiggered his knee and australia played absolutely the game we knew they would, and i'm not going to criticise jack leach, he has hardly played either, and barring the same miracle england pulled off here 11 years ago, they will lose the game and they might lose it in three days. they targeted him. once england left out stuart broad i'm afraid it has followed a rather predictable course. five quick bowlers is a lot to have, and you don't do it every time, but in a match such as this one, in brisbane, with that weather, with the lack of preparation, with the fact that they haven't had this day in the field, i think they had to be more prepared and cautious than england were and they rather through leech to the lions. give australia credit for the way they played it, they showed a lot of courage and confidence, smashing him for nine an over, but i'm afraid that england have rather played into their hands. ., ., ., ., their hands. england today had to take every opportunity _ their hands. england today had to take every opportunity that - their hands. england today had to take every opportunity that came | take every opportunity that came their way. take every opportunity that came theirway. david take every opportunity that came their way. david warner had five lives before he was eventually out in the 90s and that is something
6:37 pm
england could ill afford. absolutely, and when you get bowled out for 147 yev take every chance that comes. and yes, dropped, he could have been run out. it was not a pretty innings from warner but you have to admire his guts, he caught a couple of brutal balls in the ribs, we saw travis head get hit by a beamer, hit in the jaw. there have been some bruises going around, so you have to admire australia. england fought hard today. the contrast between their three front—line bowlers and their three support bowlers is very marked, and as i say, there will be criticism flying around as i say, there will be criticism flyin- around and as i say, there will be criticism flying around as i say, there will be criticism flyin- around and deservedly as i say, there will be criticism flying around as i say, there will be criticism flyin- around and deservedly so as i say, there will be criticism flying around as i say, there will be criticism flyin- around and deservedly so in flying around and deservedly so in some quarters, particularly with the selection, but i won't hear any criticism of those front three bowlers. ., ., ~' . criticism of those front three bowlers. ., ., ~ ., , ., criticism of those front three bowlers. ., , ., ., bowlers. look at this do for the rest of the _ bowlers. look at this do for the rest of the ashes _ bowlers. look at this do for the rest of the ashes series, - bowlers. look at this do for the rest of the ashes series, is - bowlers. look at this do for the rest of the ashes series, is it i bowlers. look at this do for the l rest of the ashes series, is it too far to say this game has gone? ida. far to say this game has gone? no, barrin: far to say this game has gone? no, barring the — far to say this game has gone? iirr, barring the same miracle and then pulled off here 11 years ago, they will lose the game. they might lose it in three days. then they go to adelaide for a day—night game, where again you are expecting them
6:38 pm
to perform well. they will have james anderson for that and stuart broad, albeit having played no cricket. but at least they will have those bowlers on the side. we don't know whether ben stokes will be fit enough, but england are used to, i am afraid, not playing well here in brisbane and the fact that australia hold the ashes means it is more difficult to come back from one behind to win them, but this match now has to be used really as preparation and the batsmen have got to get something out of tomorrow. england will almost certainly lose the game, but i want to see the english fight and the batsmen get in and make the most of what is effectively practice for them, to go into adelaide and they have got to hit the ground running there and try to level things up. jonathan and henry are part of the bbc test match special team, providing ball—by—ball commentary. they'll be live from 11:30pm tonight with full coverage of day three. plus, there's live text commentary, features, and analysis on the bbc sport website and app. we've all heard about changes in covid rules across the country
6:39 pm
because of the new variant. well, football fans have been told to check with their clubs on how they might be impacted when going to matches. from wednesday, suporters in england will need to show proof they've been doubled—jabbed or have a negative test to get into games with a crowd of more than 10,000 people. similar conditions are already in place in scotland, wales and northern ireland. joe lynskey has been looking at the changes and what they'll mean for you. cheering sport had to wait a year and a half, but in the summer, the sound came back. there has been full crowds in england through the season. for now, that doesn't change, but plan b will affect how fans get in. from wednesday, they will need covid passes. if they are at games with more than 10,000. for 500 passes. if they are at games with more than 10,000. for500 indoors, at sports like snooker. for now, a

6:42 pm
of course that is due to the coronavirus outbreak at spurs. of course that is due to the coronavirus outbreak at spurs. eight players and five staff tested positive, prompting the club to close the first team area of their training ground. they'd already been criticised by rennes, after tonight's europa champions league game was postponed — the french club accused them of a lack of fair play. leicester have also been hit by a covid outbreak — seven players have missed the trip to napoli for theirfinal europa league group match, with a combination of positive tests and some feeling unwell. leicester went into the game top of their group — they'll make the last 16 with a win — but they're trailing 2—1 — they went behind after just four minutes, to an adam ounas goal. it is now 2—2. the equaliser here scored by kiernan dewsbury—hall. that result, as it stands, were to take leicester through. half time now. rangers are leading lyon 1—0 in france, thanks
6:43 pm
to scott wright's deflected shot — the scottish champions are already guaranteed a place in the round of 16 play—offs. it is half time there too. celtic can't now make it but they'll be looking to end their campaign on a high with victory over real betis. and west ham have already won their group, no matter what the result against dynamo zagreb later. barcelona are facing some fierce criticism in the spanish press, after failing to make the knockout stages of the champions league for the first time in 17 years. their 3—0 defeat at bayern munich last night meant they could only finish third in their group. reginaldo rosario reports. the sinking. below zero. a sad end. some of the headlines from spain's biggest sporting newspapers, after a landmark night in the munich snow. barcelona have experienced extreme lows in recent seasons, and this was

for players, even tougher. there are no quick fixes, and it may be a while before barca are in europe as �*stop while before barca are in europe as �*s top table again. arsenal women have the opportunity to bounce back from defeat in the fa cup final, by securing a place in the last eight of the champions league. they take on the defending champions barcelona in their penultimate group game and they'll go through if they avoid defeat, or if the other result goes their way. it was chelsea that arsenal lost to in that final at wembley, and there was an incident during their champions league game at home tojuventus last night. a pitch invader came worryingly close to the players, and chelsea striker sam kerr knocked him over. security were able to catch up with him and take him off, but kerr was punished with a yellow card. the match ended goalless, with chelsea still top of their group. but manager, emma hayes said player safety needed to be reviewed. i don't know why he didn't wait until the end.
6:46 pm
he could have had a photograph, if he really wanted one. but, jokes aside, you know, you have to do think about player safety. i think we have seen it. there is this sense that the players are more in demand, so i think it should serve as a reminder to us all in our stadiums and our stewards that they have to put player protection first. in scotland, hibs have sacked their managerjack ross, following a poor run of form in the premiership, which saw them lose seven of their last nine games. ross' departure was triggered by their defeat at livingston last night, when hibs had two players sent off. his dismissal comes just ten days before the side play celtic in the league cup final. let's take a look at some of the other sports news stories making the headlines. john higgins took less than an hour to see off ryan day of wales and move into the last 16 of the scottish open snooker. the four—time world champion won
6:47 pm
by four frames to nil. two—time olympic swimmer and former commonwealth and european champion georgia davies has announced her retirement. she won 20 international medals over an 11—year career. davies said she still got goosebumps thinking about competing at london 2012. and the former women's tennis number one amelie mauresmo has been named as the director of the french open, taking overfrom guy forget, who stepped down on tuesday. she's the first woman to hold the role. jockey robbie dunne has had his licence suspended for 18 months, after being found guilty of "bullying and harassing" bryony frost. the chair of the independent disciplinary panel described his behaviour as "deliberate harassment on and off the track, with occasional cases of dangerous bullying". however, the professionaljockey�*s association said the panels' findings that the culture of the weighing room
6:48 pm
was "deep—rooted and coercive" was grossly inaccurate. our sports news correspondent laura scott has been following the case. a warning, there is some flash photography in her report. bryo ny frost bryony frost is one of the most successful writers of her generation. a prestigious victory last boxing day on her best mate frodon cemented that position but friends in the weighing room have been harder to come by, after she alleged fellow jockey been harder to come by, after she alleged fellowjockey robbie dunne had bullied and harassed her. 14 months since she made those complaints, an independent panel ruled that robbie dunne had brought the sport into disrepute and banned him for 18 months. i the sport into disrepute and banned him for 18 months.— him for 18 months. i think what today was _ him for 18 months. i think what today was my _ him for 18 months. i think what today was my judgment - him for 18 months. i think what today was my judgment has - him for 18 months. i think what. today was myjudgment has shown him for 18 months. i think what - today was myjudgment has shown us is that we still have a way to go. that we need to continue to respond to societal changes, to accept, to embrace them, and to ensure that we are a sport that is welcoming to
6:49 pm
everybody, and reflective of the modern society that we all live in. the bha's case was that robbie dunne had pursued a vendetta against frost, including threats to cause her physical harm, deliberately exposing himself in front of her and using fowler, sexually abusive and misogynistic language, all of which he denied. but today, the panel showed he had shown no remorse and found him guilty of distasteful targeting, deliberate harassment, both on and off the course, and dangerous bullying. bryony frost said she wouldn't risk the isolation she has felt since peaking out on anyone, —— she wouldn't wish, but despite all that has been going on at the hearing, she has had to put that to one side, and has successfully retained her focus on the dayjob. that winner at lingfield yesterday added to this rousing top level victory last weekend at sandown. but it's the emotional testimony of her darker moments in the sport, combined with robbie dunne's denials and evidence
6:50 pm
from otherjockeys that lead the panel to raise serious concerns over the so—called weighing room culture, which they described as deep—rooted and coercive. some say in the sport changes urgently needed. they're just think it is concerning when things have repeatedly been said in an aggressive manner, and for what it's worth, _ an aggressive manner, and for what it's worth, a — an aggressive manner, and for what it's worth, a male to female, it's not good, — it's worth, a male to female, it's not good, we are past those days, and we _ not good, we are past those days, and we need to move forward and think— and we need to move forward and think of— and we need to move forward and think of the bigger picture and try and get _ think of the bigger picture and try and get along better there. tonight, robbie dunne's _ and get along better there. tonight, robbie dunne's solicitor _ and get along better there. tonight, robbie dunne's solicitor described i robbie dunne's solicitor described the outcome is both extraordinary and deeply disappointing and told me and deeply disappointing and told me an appeal is high on the agenda. in an appeal is high on the agenda. in a sport where men and women compete as equals on the track, there are concerns this case has exposed damaging inequalities off it. laura scott, bbc news. bryony frost issued a short statement in response to the decision, thanking her supporters and saying that she'll take a few days to reflect on the outcome before making any comment. the jockey wasn't at the hearing, instead, she was at warwick, winning the opening race. an emotional frost was cheered by racegoers as she won on—board
6:51 pm
graystone for trainer lucy wadham. the hotly—anticipated final race of the formula one season is almost upon us. red bull's max verstappen and mercedes' lewis hamilton go into the abu dhabi grand prix on equal points. so will there be a new drivers' champion or will hamilton get a record eighth title? the bbc�*s sports editor dan roan asked red bull team principal christian horner who he thought would win. it's hard to be confident. it has been so close between those two drivers, from the first race all the way through. lewis and mercedes have had the better car since the summer break, arguably, buti had the better car since the summer break, arguably, but i think max has just driven out of his skin, and we've seen him do some extraordinary things full stops of this year of the winds in austin most recently
6:52 pm
and mexico really standing out, and i think that it is a different layout of abu dhabi circuit this weekend. we don't know how that will play to strengths and weaknesses, but what's for sure is that as a team, and as a driver, we're going to be giving it 120%. we're going to give it everything that we can come and see what happens by the time we get to the chequered flag. obviously, you have enjoyed lots of success in the past with sebastien vettel in particular, but max does the business this weekend and red bull ends its eight year wait for the title, where do you think this would rank, christian, among the achievements you have enjoyed during your career? i achievements you have en'oyed during our career? ~ , ., , your career? i think this would be b far our your career? i think this would be by far our biggest. _ your career? i think this would be by far our biggest. the _ your career? i think this would be by far our biggest. the sebastien | by far our biggest. the sebastien years were wonderful but we had a very, very strong car, and sebastien extracted the most out of that, but i think this year, up against the quality of opponents we've had. i mean, mercedes, they have been the benchmark team for the last seven years. nobody else has won in formula one for the last 11 years.
6:53 pm
between red bull and mercedes. but the last seven in this hybrid era, they've been totally dominant, and so to be at this final race, tied on points, you know, it is a shoot out between the two guys. it's exciting to be part of, when you take your red bull hat off, just as a fan of sport, it's an amazing thing for formula one, and i'm sure it is probably can be one of the biggest if not the biggest sporting event of the year. the if not the biggest sporting event of the ear. ., , ., , ., the year. the rivalry of these two ureat the year. the rivalry of these two great drivers _ the year. the rivalry of these two great drivers has _ the year. the rivalry of these two great drivers has been _ the year. the rivalry of these two great drivers has been i - the year. the rivalry of these two great drivers has been i think - great drivers has been i think mirrored in a way or replicated by that between you and your mercedes counterpart toto wolff on occasion. and the rivalry between and the relationship between the two teams it seems at times to be very tense. is that authentic on all occasions, or is there a degree of come because of the netflix series, perhaps, not being afraid... it is of the netflix series, perhaps, not being afraid. . ._ being afraid. .. it is absolutely authentic— being afraid... it is absolutely authentic and _ being afraid... it is absolutely
