Talofa, Ma’lele’i, Bula and welcome to Season 05 Episode 65 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 Wednesday morning 07 June 2023.

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

In rugby union

As huge excitement swirls around the Fijian Drua Super Rugby Pacific quarter final against the Crusaders in Christchurch, Fiji Airways has put on a special same day turnaround flight for diehard fans @ F$899 return.

One word of advice, if you haven’t got thermal underwear – get some quick smart, or Men risk losing their crown jewels to frost bite!

Remember how hot it was on the day the Fijian Drua beat the Crusaders in Lautoka, well the weekend weather forecast for Christchurch is for chilly temperatures well below 10 degrees and falling!

In rugby league

Is it true the NSW Blues may pick Semi Radradra and Justin Olam for ORIGIN II?

Brad Fittler faces the impossible task of replacing Nathan Cleary, Braith Anasta said on NRL 360 last night. The Blues have to weigh up experience and the biggest threats they can pose to Queensland in ORIGIN II versus youth and dare.

So who will it be?

In picking their halves combo for the do or die ORIGIN II clash at Suncorp, does Freddie stick with the incumbent Jarome Luai or throw in Cody Walker at five-eighth?

His halfback options are no easier – Adam Reynolds, Nicho Hynes or Mitchell Moses?

Meanwhile, Billy The Kid and the Maroons are sitting pretty in Queensland soaking up the sunshine waiting on ORIGIN II.

In football

Fabrizio Romano, one of world football’s most reliable and connected sources of transfer market news, announced on social media yesterday afternoon, that a contract offer – including the option of a third season – has been made to the all-conquering Celtic and former Socceroos boss, Ange Postecoglou, who has verbally agreed, to become Tottenham’s new Manager.



In SportsBiz

Saudi Arabia is hoping to lure a swathe of world-famous footballers with a US$3Billion war chest, after several local Clubs were effectively taken over by the government.

In addition to Karim Benzema who they signed up yesterday, and Lionel Messi in their sights, “more than ten” seasoned players including N’Golo Kante, Roberto Firmino, Sergio Ramos, Angel Di Maria, Luka Modric, Hugo Lloris, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets have been approached, a source said.

The oil-rich kingdom has ambitions of hosting the FIFA World Cup and is betting on sports to help revamp its image.

In football

It’s official, Tottenham has signed Ange Postecoglou as their new Manager, in one of the biggest moments in Australian football history – the first Aussie Manager in the Premier League.

Spurs confirmed last night that they had signed the 57-year-old from Celtic on a four-year deal, in the hope he will reinvigorate the Club and re-energise their game style.

Postecoglou just completed a domestic treble in Scotland and previously coached Yokohama and Brisbane Roar to league championships, along with leading Australia to the Asian Cup title.

And finally in boxing

Since Andy Ruiz is still running from Deontay Wilder – last seen crossing the border into Guatemala, former two-time wannabe World Heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua may become the new WBO mandatory challenger to Tyson Fury.

“That’s a possibility, Joshua’s right there at No 3,” says World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman.

As we say in Nukualofa when we’re chasing piglets for a roasting, “You can run, but you can’t hide!”

And that’s a wrap!
