Malo and welcome to Episode 70 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika peoples sports on this beautiful bright and sunny Thursday morning 08 September 2022 – coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
In rugby – the RWC7s starts on Friday in Cape Town South Africa at 6:45pm Fiji time in the Mens Comp at 7:29pm Samoa-Uganda, then at 8:23pm Kenya-Tonga with Team Fijiana playing at 11:17pm against Japan Women.
The real Men start playing from 1:39am with USA taking on the winner of Samoa vs Uganda, followed at 2:01am New Zealand versus the winner of Scotland vs Jamaica, 2:23am Argentina-winner Kenya vs Tonga and at 4:05am for all you early birds Fiji-winner Wales vs Korea.
In this crazy format, designed to favour the big guns like England etc who are not as 7s fit as Fiji and New Zealand, lose and you go home!
In rugby league – our line up for the NRL Semi-finals next weekend based on our world famous tips for who will make it through the first round of finals this weekend: First Semi Final: The Panthers to host the Storm, Second Semi Final the Sharks to host the Rabbitohs. Wanna bet?
In boxing – Anthony Joshua has accepted Tyson Fury’s offer of 40% of a multi-million pound purse for a blockbuster British Heavyweight title fight on 17 December 2022 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff Wales.
Smart play by the Gypsy King because he squeezes this sell-out fight out of AJ in Britain and smashes him to a pulp, before doing the same to the Ukrainian champ Oleksandr Usyk in 2023 before Fury retires undefeated.
In tennis – awful Aussie Nick Kyrgios has crashed out of the US Tennis Open, eliminated in the quarter-finals in a thrilling five sets: 5-7, 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 (7/3), 4-6 by Russian star, Karen Khachanov.
Remember Kyrgios had earlier taken out World Number One, Daniil Medvedev and installed as the tournament favourite, but what can I say – he smashed two racquets after the game on his way out like a spoilt kid.
In football – English Premier League giants Chelsea has sacked their 49 year old German Manager, Thomas Tuchel, just days after their new US owners splashed out a record US$311Million on nine new players, including – Raheem Sterling from Man City @ £47.5Million, Wesley Fofana from Leicester City @ £75M, Marc Cucurella from Brighton @ £60M and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona @ £10.3M.
Plus Tuchel got rid of problem child Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan on loan and dud striker Timo Werner to RB Leipzig for £25.3M.
And get this – Thomas Tuchel guided the Blues to Champions League glory in 2021, the FA Cup and EFL Cup finals last season.
It’s like buying your child all the Christmas presents they want and then dropping them off at an orphanage on Boxing Day without the presents!
