Malo  and welcome to Season 4 Episode 14 of Breakfast Bites, by  TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on this sunny and  warm Saturday morning 14 January 2023, coming to you from paradise on  the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!

In rugby union – Fijian  rugby star of the 1990s, Noa Nadruku, who switched codes to play for  the Canberra Raiders in 1993, was inducted into Fiji’s Rugby Town Walk  of Fame in Sigatoka yesterday. Nadruku was one of the best 25 players in  the Raiders’ 25-year anniversary after scoring 96 tries in 143 NRL  games.

Also  inducted yesterday was Kenya’s all-time World Rugby 7s Series top try  scorer and second highest try scorer at that Series with 271 tries,  Collins Injera. Among 12 others who have been honoured since 2011 are legendary All Black Jonah Lomu and Fiji 7s superstar, Waisale Serevi.

“Being honoured over 15,200 kilometres away from home is simply the best feeling in my rugby career,” Injera said.

In boxing – Gerrie Coetzee, the former WBA World Heavyweight Champion passed away yesterday from cancer at the age of 67.

Coetzee won the title with a 10th-round knockout of Michael Dokes in the US in 1985.

More  importantly, at the height of apartheid in South Africa, Coetzee was a  vocal opponent of the racist policies of his county, even adopting an  orphaned black boy.

Rest in Peace Coetzee.

In football – Manchester City star, Benjamin Mendy has been cleared of sex attacks on four women, and  jurors failed to reach verdicts on two others, following a six-month  trial in Chester. The Judge discharged the jury yesterday, ending the trial. Prosecutors may re-trial two cases.

Only in the US – a signed Kobe Bryant MVP season jersey is set to be sold at auction by  Sotheby’s for US$7Million. Bryant wore the jersey in 25 games of the  2007/2008 NBA season, scoring 645 points over eight months.

The  NBA superstar also averaged 28.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 5.4 assists  per game, guiding the Los Angeles Lakers to the NBA Finals — ultimately  losing to the Boston Celtics.

And in Texas, some high school football players at an elite high school in Dallas, allege they were deprived of water and subjected to performing 400 push-ups within an hour as punishment – sending several students to the hospital, according to local reports.

Rockwall-Heath High School Head Coach, John Harrell has been placed on leave while a third party conducts an investigation.

Sounds like good ol’ tough love to me.
