Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 08 Episode 35 of Breakfast Bites the FIJI & PACIFIC SPORTS NEWS PODCAST, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika people’s sports news, on a sunny & bright Sunday morning 4th February 2024.

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

In rugby union

The All Blacks play 14 Tests in total in 2024, warming up with two Tests against England in Dunedin and Auckland in early July, before a Pasifika battle in San Diego CA against the Flying Fijians.

The All Blacks also play back-to-back Tests against Argentina in New Zealand in August, followed by two Tests against the Springboks in South Africa.

The ABs Rugby Championship campaign concludes with Bledisloe Cup Tests in Sydney and Wellington in September.

But wait, that’s not all – the All Blacks 2024 Northern Tour starts against Japan in Yokohama in October, followed by four November Tests against England, Ireland, France and Italy.

And how many Tests against Tier One rugby nations do Samoa, Tonga and Fiji play in 2024?

In rugby league

The NRL is continuing to shoot for the stars for its historic season launch in Las Vegas, chasing NFL star Travis Kelce to rock up to their corporate suites at Allegiant Stadium on 03 March . . with guess who?

Why doesn’t Peter V’landys just pick up the phone and call Taylor Swift himself?

“Er high Taylor, this is Peter V from the land down under – I’m a Swiftee and er . . .”

Seriously, the bigger picture is that the Vegas gig is also tied to an all expenses trip down under for Kelce to watch an ORIGIN blockbuster, which the NRL is working on with his teammate, former Souths player and now also a big star in the NFL, Jordan Mailata.



In football

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have dedicated their 1-0 quarterfinal win over Angola in the African Cup of Nations to the late Samuel Okwaraji, who died while playing in a 1990 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Angola in Lagos.

Nigeria will play the winner of South Africa versus Cape Verde in the semi-final.

In Boxing

Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone has paid tribute to Rocky co-star Carl Weathers who died at the age of 76.

Weathers is best known for his role as the iconic Apollo Creed in the original “Rocky” in 1976, followed by Rocky II in 1979 and in 1982 in Rocky III, before his character was killed in the ring by Ivan Drogo in 1984’s Rocky IV.

Stallone, who wrote and starred as Rocky Balboa paid tribute to Weathers in an emotional Instagram post.

“Today is an incredibly sad day for me. I’m just trying to hold it in because Carl Weathers was such an integral part of my life and my success.”

“I never could have accomplished what we did with Rocky without him. He was absolutely brilliant – his voice, his size, his power, his athletic ability but more importantly in his heart and his soul.”

“He was magic and I was so fortunate to be part of his life. So, Apollo, keep punching.”

In SportsBiz

per Bowl LVIII isn’t the only major sporting event about to make its Sin City debut. 

After LIV Golf completes its season-opening tournament in Mexico this weekend, the league will head to Las Vegas Country Club, just off the Strip, joining thousands of Chiefs, 49ers and other NFL die-hard fans, flocking to town for next Sunday’s Super Bowl.

And that’s a wrap!
