Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 08 Episode 67 of Breakfast Bites the FIJI & PACIFIC SPORTS NEWS PODCAST, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika people’s sports news, on a sunny and bright Monday morning 11 March 2024.

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

In rugby union

Fijian Drua fans are still drooling over sensational rookie flyhalf Isaiah Armstrong-Ravula. The young gun had a flawless game against the Crusaders at Churchill Park, Lautoka last Saturday with the Kiwis Coach even mentioning him in his media conference post game.

How good is this kid!

Meanwhile, the Saint George Dragons are reportedly chasing 24-year-old Wallabies star Jordan Petaia, who can play Centre, Wing or Fullback, and is off contract at the end of the season.

Petaia is also exploring rugby union options in France and Japan, according to The SMH, and has played 27 Tests for Australia, including at the past two Rugby World Cups.

In football

Liverpool’s blockbuster clash against Manchester City at Anfield has just ended in a one all draw.

Earlier Arsenal needed Kai Havertz’s late winner to go top of the Premier League by beating Brentford 2-1 as Manchester United kept alive their faint hopes of finishing in the top four with a 2-0 win over Everton.

An eighth consecutive Premier League win sees Mikel Arteta’s men level with Liverpool and one clear of defending champions Man City.



In SportsBiz

Paris Olympics Organizers have announced that about 326,000 spectators will be allowed to watch this summer’s Olympic Games opening ceremony along the River Seine.

While that revised total is almost 50% less than the 600,000 initially expected and will shut out some hopeful fans. The good news: It still allows for four times the crowd capacity of the Stade de France.

In combat sports

UFC boss Dana White has hinted at his concern over the upcoming boxing clash between Mike Tyson and Jake Paul.

“Tyson gets mad when I do this but Mike’s 60. I love Mike Tyson, personally as a friend and he’s one of my favourite athletes of all time, and I don’t like the 31-year age difference,” White told reporters.

Former World Heavyweight Champion Tyson will fight Paul on 20 July at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It will be Tyson’s first fight since taking on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition in November 2020.

Tyson has not fought professionally since 2005 when he quit on his stool after five rounds of his clash with Kevin McBride.

The fight will be broadcast by Netflix in the summer as the streaming service makes its move into live sports. 

Madness driven by money!

In rugby league

Sheriff Todd Peyton and his Cowboys rode into town and silenced the derby home crowd, scoring seven tries – two to Zac Laybutt, and all converted by Valentine Holmes for a 43-18 win, leaving Wayne Bennett and his pod with plenty of questions to ponder.

Meanwhile, Penrith Panthers young gun Izack Tago has reportedly penned a new deal that will make him one of the highest-paid Centres in the NRL.

Tago was already contracted until 2025 but has agreed terms at A$3Million that will keep him at the Club until the end of 2028 on an extended deal averaging around A$750,000 per season

So that’s a wrap!
