This week on Holmes - 13 October 2005 :

1. An exclusive interview with JONAH LOMU and his wife and manager, Fiona, as they prepare for Cardiff...

Should Jonah be going to Cardiff or should he give rugby up? Some think Jonah should accept the passing of the years and find new goals however, Jonah is determined to play. Does Jonah leave New Zealand with some hurt over comments about his loyalty to New Zealand and our bid for 2011 Rugby World Cup?

XCELLENT'S owners have their sights set on Australia's Spring Racing season... Can our horse of the year square off against Australia's horse of the year MACCABEE DIVA to take the Melbourne Cup?
