Malo  and welcome to Episode 74 of Breakfast Bites by – a  wrap of Pasifika peoples sports on this sunny Monday morning 12  September 2022 – coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in  the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

In  rugby – Fiji has won the Melrose Cup title for the Rugby World Cup 7s,  beating New Zealand 12-29 in Cape Town, South Africa this morning.

They  just got better as the tournament progressed and Coach Ben Gollings  utilized the bench brilliantly to pile the pressure on in the second  half of the second half of games just as starting players were looking  for a break or a miracle.

Imagine  being down and out and then seeing Fiji substitutes Mocenacagi and  Vakurinabuli – both at nearly 2M tall and over 100Kg running on with a  big BULA smile especially for you.

The  Kiwis were so battered and bruised by the brutal Fijian defence that  Fiji didn’t even bother to take the conversion for their final try to  keep it below 30 points.

Australia won the Womens comp 24-22 New Zealand and France 29-7 USA for third. Team Fijiana came 5th beating Canada 53 nil and Ireland 24 nil overnight.

In rugby league – NRL  fans were treated to the most enthralling and chaotic clash of finals  football in recent memory after seven players were sent to the sin bin  in the infamous Sydney derby at Allianz Stadium where tensions are  always high between South Sydney 30-14 Sydney Roosters.

Alex Johnston became the first player to chalk up back-to-back 30-try seasons with a double yesterday for the Rabbitohs.

In  football – Qatar will host The Fans Cup five-a-side tournament for fans  of all 32 competing nations from 29 November to 02 December during this  year’s FIFA World Cup. The tournament will be played in the same format  as the FIFA World Cup, with group matches and knockout rounds until the

winner is crowned.

In boxing – Nate  Diaz has bowed out of the UFC with a win, submitting Tony Ferguson in  the fourth round of UFC279. Khamzat Chimaev decimated Kevin Holland in  just under two minutes while Li Jingliang could count himself extremely  unlucky in his split decision loss to Daniel Rodriguez.

This follows a crazy 48 hours after Khamzat Chimaev weighed in over the Welterweight limit.

For – I’m Culden Kamea, Mahalo, vina’a and thank you!
