Talofa, Ma’lele’i, Bula and welcome to Season 05 Episode 85 of Breakfast Bites, the FIJI & PACIFIC SPORTS NEWS PODCAST, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika people’s sports news on a bright and sunny Friday morning 30 June 2023.

Coming to you with tons of hanisi from the 180th meridian, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

In rugby

There is a new Samoan Warrior wreaking havoc on opposition defences, with Henry Tuilagi’s 150kg son Posolo Tuilagi lighting up the World Rugby U20 Championship in South Africa.

The 18-year-old’s latest victim was New Zealand, with the 1.92M tall lock scoring two tries in an action packed “Man of the Match” performance; helping his side to a 35-14 win and handing New Zealand their biggest loss in the history of the U20 Championship.

The Tuilagi name is well known in international rugby, with the Tuilagi brothers: Henry, Manu, Alesana, Freddie and Anitelea, all striking fear into their opposition on the field with their sheer size and physicality.

In rugby league

FOX Sports Australia has named their NSW Blues side to beat Queensland as:Dylan Edwards, Brian To’o, Stephen Crichton, Campbell Graham, Josh Addo-Carr, Matt Burton, Mitchell Moses, Payne Haas, Reece Robson, Reagan Campbell-Gillard, Hudson Young, Liam Martin and Cameron Murray (c).

You gotta ask – aren’t all media meant to be neutral?

Meanwhile, a teary-eyed Storm Coach, Craig Bellamy conceded his side “got what we deserved” after they coughed up a 14-point lead to lose 34-16 to the Panthers yesterday.

Melbourne had control of the game early, scoring two tries, but a penalty try to Stephen Crichton in the 31st minute opened the floodgates for Penrith and they ran in five more.

To South Sydney where Cody Walker and Alex Johnston were on fire, while rookie Tyrone Munro starred on debut as the Rabbitohs thrashed the NZ Warriors 6-28 at Go Media Stadium er better known as Mount Smart in Auckland.

Walker finished with two linebreak assists and a try assist, while Johnston had a double and Munro scored a try on debut and set up another in the upset win.

In Sportsbiz

FIFA has ordered Cardiff Football Club to make the full transfer fee payment of US$19Million to Nantes for Emiliano Sala’s transfer.

Sala died when the light aircraft he was flying in from France to Wales crashed into the English Channel in January 2019 – remember? Two days after Cardiff had announced their signing of the 28-year-old Argentinian forward from Nantes.

Cardiff had paid a one third installment, but they have now been ordered by FIFA to pay the last two installments of the fee as well.

In football

Aaron Mooy, one of Australia’s most decorated footballers, has called time on his professional career.

The 32-year-old said in a statement: “This has been a hugely difficult decision, but I feel the time is right for the next generation to be given the opportunity.”

Mooy has been a key figure for the Socceroos for a decade, amasssing 57 caps for his country while featuring in two FIFA World Cups – in Russia in 2018 and the Socceroos’ successful campaign in Qatar 2022 where they progressed past the group stage for the first time since 2006.

In boxing

Canelo Alvarez will face Jermall Charlo in the first of a three-fight deal Alvarez signed with PBC. The fight is confirmed for 30 September and broadcast on Showtime PPV.

Charlo (32-0, 22 KOs) is the WBC Middleweight Champion, but he hasn’t fought since a decision win over Juan Macias Montiel in June 2021.

He’ll move up in weight to challenge Alvarez for his undisputed Super Middleweight title.

Alvarez (59-2-2, 39 KOs), who defended his titles with a decision over John Ryder in Guadalajara, Mexico, in May, had said he wanted a rematch against Dmitry Bivol, who handed him the second loss of his career in May 2022 in a light heavyweight bout.

Boxing fans have wanted Alvarez to face WBC interim champion David Benavidez, but Charlo got the chance.

And that’s a wrap!
