Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 09 Episode 30 of Breakfast Bites the FIJI & PACIFIC SPORTS NEWS PODCAST, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika people’s sports news, on a sunny and bright Monday morning 6th May 2024.

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

In rugby union

History was created at the Singapore 7s yesterday with Argentina men winning the SVNS 7s League ahead of the Grand Finals in Madrid at the end of May.

This after the All Blacks 7s beat Ireland to win the Singapore 7s tournament, after the Black Ferns 7s beat arch-rivals Australia to win the first ever Singapore 7s Women’s section.

Samoa slipped into the promotion-relegation competition in Madrid.

In rugby league

“He’s a genius. The players have bought into it. They want to play for him and the club and each other and they’re doing a terrific job in the top four. You couldn’t wish for better,” Mal Meninga on Wayne Bennett and the Dolphins.

Bennett will hand the coaching reigns over to assistant Kristian Woolf at season’s end after two years in charge, but it begs the question — why go ahead with the succession plan when they’ve got such a good thing going?



In Super Netball

It took nine months but West Coast Fever gained revenge against the NSW Swifts yesterday.

Their 75-59 win came after the Swifts secured a thrilling final-second victory over the Fever in last season’s Super Netball preliminary final, crushing their chances at back-to-back titles.

Meanwhile, the Melbourne Vixens continued their unbeaten start to the season with a bruising 68-55 win over Queensland Firebirds in front of a packed crowd of over 8600 at John Cain Arena.

The Vixens had to use all their composure while the Firebirds attempted to ruffle their feathers.

In athletics

Watch out world, the Australian women’s 4x100M relay team means business.

For the first time since the Sydney 2000 games, the women’s relay team will be back in Olympics action after a record-breaking performance in the opening round of the World Athletics Relay Championships in Nassau, Bahamas.

The foursome of Ebony Lane, Bree Masters, Ella Connolly and anchored by teen sensation – Australia’s fastest woman, Torrie Lewis, stopped the clock at 42.83 seconds to finish second in their heat behind Germany.

Their time was the fifth fastest overall which not only booked their place in the final, but it also booked their ticket to the Paris Olympics in August.

In the NBA

The Los Angeles Lakers fired their Head Coach Darvin Ham just days after they were ousted from the NBA playoffs by Denver.

The Lakers were swept by eventual NBA champion Denver in last year’s Western Conference final and eliminated in five games in round one by the Nuggets this season.

In addition to who will be hired to guide the squad next, the Lakers face uncertainty over the future of superstar LeBron James, who can opt out of his contract next season.

“I’ve seen and heard a lot of reports about my future and I’ll say it again: I do not know yet as I’m only thinking about spending time with my family & friends! When I know, then you guys will know. Until then. Love,” James tweeted on Tuesday.

Lebron James has said he would like to play next season alongside his son Bronny, who has opted into next month’s NBA Draft.

In combat sports

Undisputed Super Middleweight World Champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez beat Jaime Munguia by unanimous decision in their world title fight at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas yesterday.

Canelo dropped his fellow Mexican with a vicious uppercut in the fourth round and got stronger throughout the fight.

“I’m the best fighter right now, for sure.” Alvarez said after the fight. His next opponent remains a mystery.

“I’m going to rest,” he continued.

“But if the money is right … I can fight right now.”

Spoken like a true champion.

And that’s a wrap!
