Talofa, Ma’lelei’i, Bula and welcome to Season 4 Episode 68 of Breakfast Bites, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on a beautiful sunny and bright Friday morning 10 March 2023, coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!!

In rugby – our world famous tips for Super Rugby Round 3 starting tonight: the Chiefs to costarica the Highlanders and the NSW Waratahs to russia the Rebels. On Saturday, the Fijian Drua to khazikhstan the Crusaders, the Blues to honduras the Hurricanes, the Reds to brunei the Brumbies and Moana Pasifika to mexico the Western Force.

In rugby league – the Panthers bounced back into form as Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai led Penrith to a convincing 16-10 win over Souths, who got two second half tries to Alex Johnston and Isaiah Tass, but their big guns were missing until late.

Tonight, one of rugby league’s fiercest rivalries resumes at Suncorp Stadium when the Broncos host the Cowboys, with both sides coming off one-point wins last weekend, this Queensland derby is sure to be a beauty, with the Cowboys holding bragging rights from last year.

In boxing – less than a month after securing the biggest win of her own career, undisputed Super featherweight queen, Alycia Baumgardner has jetted into Sydney this week to be chief “motivator” for Tony Harrison, and she may even be in his corner for Sunday’s WBO blockbuster against Tim Tszyu.

In football – “Did you see on Netflix what FIFA did?” said Aurelio De Laurentis, owner of top Serie A club Napoli, referring of course to Netflix’s “FIFA Uncovered” documentary, which explores scandals related to soccer’s global governing body.

“They stole millions. They are in Switzerland, out of every European jurisdiction, and nobody controls them,” the Italian added.

Ummm never really thought of FIFA like that.

In Sportsbiz – a stunning investigation by the Philadelphia Inquirer has connected the astroturf at Veterans Stadium, the Philadelphia Phillies’ former home, to the deaths of six retired Major League Baseball players.

The players all played for the Phillies and all died of the aggressive brain cancer glioblastoma before the age of 60. 

Two separate labs used by the investigators found 16 types of dangerous chemicals in the astroturf, which was produced by Monsanto, that don’t break down and can last in the human body for years.

These chemicals have been connected to kidney and testicular cancer, among other maladies, and the brain cancer rate among the 532 Phillies who played at Veterans Stadium from 1971 to 2003 is around triple the average rate of adult men.

Veterans Stadium was demolished in 2004 and thousands of small patches of the astroturf were sold to Phillies fans as memorabilia.

You can just feel one astronomical lawsuit coming soon!
