Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 08 Episode 40 of Breakfast Bites the FIJI & PACIFIC SPORTS NEWS PODCAST, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika people’s sports news, on a sunny & bright Saturday morning 10th February 2024.

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

In rugby union

Wallabies star Kurtley Beale has been found not guilty of allegations he sexually assaulted a woman in the bathroom of a Bondi bar on 17 December 2022, after a grueling two-week trial.

The jury rejected claims that Mr Beale forced the 29-year-old woman into oral sex in the men’s bathroom.

In rugby league

In one of the truly great pre-season coups, UFC Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones arrived in Australia yesterday, and headed straight to Belmore for a meeting with the entire Bulldogs NRL squad.

Every player attended the session with the champion fighter for two hours, in which he pushed them through a series of physical challenges, and speaking openly about the secrets driving what just may be the greatest UFC career in history.

“And the impact of that,” Bulldogs coach Cameron Ciraldo says, “incredible”.



In Football

David Beckham was booed by 40,000 fuming fans demanding a refund.

The former England Captain, now Inter Miami owner, was in Hong Kong for Inter Miami’s pre-season trip to the Far East, The Sun reports.

The 40,000 tickets for their game at Hong Kong stadium were snapped up within an hour of going on sale.

However, locals who forked out as much as US$700 on tickets expressed their anger because Lionel Messi remained an unused substitute.

The Argentine icon, 36, has been battling a hamstring injury that saw him only play seven minutes in the 6-0 defeat against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr on Friday.

There were chants of “we want Messi” during the second half as Inter Miami ran out 4-1 winners against a local invitational side.

In SportsBiz

When it comes to advertising, the Super Bowl really is the big dance.

Companies will pay US$6.5Million to US$7M for a 30-second commercial spot on CBS’ broadcast of the clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

Because of the hefty cost of airing an ad to an audience of over 100 million viewers, companies go all-out.

This year, as usual, Super Bowl LVIII Ads will feature a host of iconic products and some famous faces – from Hollywood stars to sports greats and entertainers like – Sir Anthony Hopkins, Jason Mamoa, Christopher Walken and Vince Vaughn.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and teammate Travis Kelce plus Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, David & Victoria Beckham, Wayne Gretzky and wrestling great ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.

The Ads even feature Super Bowl halftime performer Usher plus Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and Martha Stewart.

Finally in the NFL

Counting down to Super Bowl LVIII – you can bet on the Super Bowl game itself or . . . just about anything around it – like

  • · Who wins the coin toss – and what will it be – heads or tails? Seven of the last ten years, it’s been tails. Interestingly, if you look all-time, the team that wins the toss typically loses the game.

This year, Caesars Sportsbook has reported a US$100,000 wager been placed on tails for the coin toss.

  • · You can bet on the length of the national anthem – sung this year by Reba McEntire. Will it be longer or shorter than 90.5 seconds? Will she miss a word?

This year, the halftime show will be performed by Usher.

  • · Want to place a bet on that?
  • · You can guess his first song – ‘Yeah’ is the favourite.
  • · How many songs will Usher play – over or under 8 tunes?
  • · Whether he will debut a new tune?
  • · Or you can even place a bet on if, and who, Usher will bring out to perform with him – including for example – nana Madonna or Taylor Swift?

And that’s a wrap Swiftees!
