Bula and welcome to TeivovoRugby.com – “Breakfast Bites” – a wrap of the daily sports news!
Queensland turned the tables on the NSW Blues in ORIGIN I in front of 90,000 screaming fans at Accor Stadium in Sydney last night, grinding out a 16-10 win with Man of the Match – who else – Cameron Munster!
In boxing, World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury bought two brand new Rolls-Royce cars yesterday at a bargain F$1.2Million each. The Gypsy King owns two other Rolls – so four in total now, a classic Mini Cooper, a Range Rover, a couple of Ferrari’s and a Volkswagen.
Don’t throw away your old jersey Hector!
Wayne Gretzky won the 1988 Stanley Cup – er that’s in ice hockey, in his final game for the Edmonton Oilers.
So last weekend, his jersey from that final sold for US$1.5Million at auction, becoming the most expensive hockey jersey of all time.
Harry Kane’s goal against Germany on Tuesday night was his 50th goal for England, now just three behind Wayne Rooney’s record. It took Cristiano Ronaldo 114 games to score 50 goals for Portugal and Lionel Messi scored 50 in 107 games for Argentina. Kane has got his in just 71 games.
And to wrap this morning’s first ever breakfast bite:
Sepp Blatter – remember him? The fraud trial of the former-FIFA President was held up again after the 86 year old Blatter complained of chest pains and breathing difficulties.
Swiss prosecutors allege a 2011 FIFA payment of US$2.2Million authorised by Blatter to Michel Platini, ex-UEFA President was unlawful.
Get this, Blatter and Platini say it was a late payment for advisory work by Platini for the then FIFA President, done 13 years earlier in 1998. Sorry, but these two are crooks!
