LITESPORT UGO MONYE will be forced to take the No15shirtforEnglandagainstAustralia at Twickenham on Saturday. With London Irish full-back Delon Armitage forced out by his shoulder problemsandGloucestersOllyMorgan hamstrung, Monye makes the emer- gency switch from his customary role on the wing. Fortunately for England boss Martin Johnson, with Harlequins team-mate Mike Brown injured at the start of the season, Monye has played at full-back in four Premiership games this season, scoring two tries. ThemovewillseeMonyeteamupwith his old Lord Wandsworth College pal Jonny Wilkinson for the first time. Monye (right) said: We were in the same boarding house, but he was a few years ahead of me. He was always there to help. It will be the first time weve played together for England. Ive never heard a bad word said about Jonny. Id like to sing the old school hymn with him -- I reckon is would bring all the old emotions back. I might even cry. I used to take the waste paper bin from our domitory andbangitlikeadrumonthe touchlinewhenJonnyplayed for our first team. Johnson, who was forced to add World Cup-winning Gloucester centre Mike Tindall to his list of inju- ries -- now up to 13 of his original 32-man Elite Squad -- will play Sales Mark Cueto and Baths Matt Banahan on the wings with Dan Hipkiss at out- side centre instead of Tindall.

Britain claimed 10 golds from 17 events, adding four silver and one bronze as four-time Olympic champion Hoy proved his indomitable spirit on his international return from injury with three gold medals. Hoy added team sprint gold on day three to his keirin and sprint titles -- replicating his successes of Beijing -- but the day belonged to the pursuit squads. The mens quartet -- Ed Clancy, Geraint Thomas, Steven Burke and Andy Tennant -- clocked the second fastest time in history, with a track record of three minutes 54.395 seconds. Britains women went one better, with Lizzie Armitstead, Joanna Rowsell and Wendy Houvenaghel breaking the world record with a time of 3mins 21.875secs. Hoy had anchored Team Sky+HD team-mates Jamie Staff and Ross Edgar to Britains opening gold of the day but then sat back and watched his compatriots thrill a sell-out crowd. On your bike: World champ Sir Chris Hoy World-beating Yankeesneed onemorewin THE New York Yankees are just one win away from clinching their 27th World Series title after a dramatic victory over the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. With scores level at 4-4 going into the ninth innings the Yankees scored three runs, before expert closer Mariano Rivera sewed up the contest with an eight-pitch innings. The Yankees can clinch their first World Series since 2000 with victory tonight when southpaw Cliff Leewill pitch for the reigning champions against Yankee game- two winner AJ Burnett. It would be great to get a win, said Yankee Johnny Damon. We loved the way AJ threw the ball in game two. Game four, live on ESPN, from 12.30am Erm, please can Ugo and play at full-back?

Wasps blow Shaw thing SIMON SHAWS eagerly anticipated return was the only good news for Wasps as they slumped 15-9 to rock-bottom Leeds at Adams Park. While unbeaten Saracens moved three points clear of London Irish at the top of the Premiership with a 12-11 win at Bath, Wasps were undone by veteran scrum-half Andy Gomarsall, the 35-year-old formerly of Wasps and Harlequins. Wasps boss Tony Hanks said: This has got to be considered a wake- up call. We have a disappointed, frustrated and angry changing room because we have not performed well, havent reacted well to pressure. A bad day at the office needs to be analysed.
