Talofa, Ma’lelei’i, Bula and welcome to Season 4 Episode 61 of Breakfast Bites, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on a beautiful sunny and bright Friday morning 03 March 2023, coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!
In Super Rugby Pacific Super Round: Tonight 7pm Crusaders-Highlanders, 9.10pm Rebels-Hurricanes, Saturday 6.05pm Moana Pasifika-Chiefs and the big one, Fijian Drua-Waratahs, Sunday 3pm Blues-Brumbies and 5.30pm Force-Reds. All games played at AAMI Park in Melbourne and times shown are Fiji local time.
In rugby league – Storm superstar Cameron Munster suffered a compound dislocation to his finger but remarkably returned to the field to orchestrate a thrilling 16-12 golden-point win over the Eels after Harry Grant darted out of dummy-half three minutes into extra time for the match-winning try.
The Storm hasn’t lost an opening game since Craig Bellamy took over as Coach in 2003 and he has only missed finals once in two decades – in 2010 following their salary cap scandal. The 63-year-old revealed on FOX this week that 2023 would almost certainly be his final season.
In football – Southampton has been sensationally dumped out of the FA Cup by League Two outfit Grimsby Town, with the visitors stealing a 2-1 win to book their quarterfinal.
While at the other end of the Premier League table, Arsenal moved five points clear at the top with a 4-0 rout of Everton and Liverpool moved into the top six with goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah deepening Wolves’ relegation fears after a 2-0 loss at Anfield.
In Sportsbiz – Formula 1 teams are agitating for a massive increase to the US$200Million joining fee for new entrants after the FIA opened expressions of interest to join the grid.
According to Autosport, the 10 current F1 teams want to at least triple that figure to US$600M, with some pushing for an even higher figure still.
As part of the commercial agreement with F1, the US$200M joining fee is distributed evenly among the existing teams to compensate them for having to split the prize pot with an 11th constructor.
In boxing – Jake “the Fake” Paul is claiming that his fight against Tommy Fury may be the biggest boxing match of 2023 after it received over half a million pay-per-view buys. The bitter rivals finally fought in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, and it was Fury who earned the bragging rights as he won via split decision.
Yeah Jake-the-Fake, what are the real pay-per-view numbers?
