BBC TWO Sunday 30 November 2008
Rugby Union – England V New Zealand
Sunday 30 November
12.30-1.30pm BBC TWO


Dan Walker presents highlights of England's final autumn international at Twickenham, with New Zealand the visitors. It was England's last run-out before the Six Nations and manager Martin Johnson would have been keen to end the first series of fixtures of his reign on a positive note. Johnson captained England on the only two occasions this century that they have beaten the All Blacks, most recently in 2003 when they won in Wellington – could he inspire his men to what would have been another famous victory?


The teams were playing for the Hillary Shield, a new trophy named after Sir Edmund Hillary, a New Zealander who became the first man to conquer Everest as part of a British expedition in 1953.


Match commentary comes from Nick Mullins and former England captain Lawrence Dallaglio.



Match Of The Day 2
Sunday 30 November
10.00-11.10pm BBC TWO


Adrian Chiles presents highlights from today's four Barclays Premier League matches, which included two derby clashes. Chelsea hosted Arsenal, pitting the footballing brains of Luiz Felipe Scolari and Arsene Wenger against each other for the first time. The Blues came from behind to win at Stamford Bridge last season, thanks to goals from Didier Drogba. The Ivorian striker has had an injury-hit start to the league campaign, but his teammates have excelled in his absence. It was also Arsenal's first game against a fellow London side since Tottenham pegged them back to a 4-4 draw, in a thrilling match in October.


Mark Hughes appeared in plenty of Manchester derbies as a player, but today was the first time that the former United legend had been involved on the City side of the fence. City fans had been used to disappointment in this fixture in recent years – until last season, when they did the double over their neighbours. Could Hughes put one over his old boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, to continue City's winning run?


Harry Redknapp has already enjoyed a 3-0 win over Everton this season while Portsmouth manager but now faced the Toffees with his new club, Tottenham, who need all the points they can get as they attempt to climb out of relegation danger. Meanwhile, Redknapp's old club, Portsmouth, hosted Blackburn at Fratton Park.


There will also be a chance to catch up on yesterday's Premier League goals as well as a nod to the lighter side of football in 2Good 2Bad.
