#013 – Breakfast Bites – TEIVOVO Rugby – 11-06-2022



Bula and welcome to TeivovoRugby.com – “Breakafast Bites” – a wrap of daily sports highlights for Saturday 11 June 2022! ·  No matter what the sport, wily old coaches always say that great D wins games, and so it proved last night with the Crusaders putting in a BIG day at the office, clocking up a new Super Rugby record of 250 tackles to hold out the hard-charging Chiefs 20-6 in freezing, wet conditions in Christchurch. And so today up in sunny Auckland at a predicted 14 degrees Celsius, we tip the Blues to dismantle the Brumbies to advance to the Super Rugby Pacific final next week. ·  With 19 All Blacks playing in Christchurch last night and more today, the Super Rugby Pacific semi-finals are great trials for the first All Blacks squad to be named on Monday. The Crusaders could provide the bulk of the All Blacks, but the challenge for Head Coach Ian Foster and his selectors is whether to select a champion team, or a team of stars. ·  In the NRL, Already without ORIGIN forwards Jeremiah Nanai and Reuben Cotter, the Cowboys lost star forward, Heilum Luki early in the first half, but they barely missed a beat, with superstar Jason Taumalolo and Hooker Reece Robson leading the way to a 31-12 win against St George Dragons in Townsville last night. ·  In football, England plays Italy in the Nations League with only 3,000 fans allowed to watch; punishment for all the crowd trouble before the Euro 2020 final when fans without tickets forced their way through security gates into Wembley stadium. England Manager Gareth Southgate says the punishment is embarrassing for the country. ·  In boxing, Three-weight world champion, Naoya Inoue is the first Japanese boxer to be crowned “World Pound-for-Pound King”. Unbeaten at 23-0, with 20 wins by Knockout. Inoue is the reigning undisputed WBC, WBA, IBF and Ring Bantamweight World Champion. ·  Finally in money matters, Forbes estimates that the 46-year-old Tiger Woods has now joined LeBron James and Michael Jordan as the third athlete in history to reach billionaire status based on his golf winnings, endorsements and other business ventures over the years. Nowadays less than 10% of Tiger’s net worth and career earnings originate from the golf course. The vast majority of his wealth is generated from lucrative endorsement deals with various brands including Nike, Gatorade, Rolex and TaylorMade. Sounds like stuff I wear Gatorade and Taylormade!!!
