Bula and welcome to TeivovoRugby.com “Breakafast Bites” – a wrap of daily sports highlights for Tuesday 14 June 2022.
This morning we start with another BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Fiji’s newest All Black: Chiefs No. 8 Pita Gus Sowakula named yesterday with five other debutants – Prop Aidan Ross, Highlanders rocket halfback Folau Fakatava, Blues utility back Stephen Perofeta, NRL convert Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Wing Leicester Fa’inga’anuku.
Those unlucky to miss out – TJ Perenara, Brad Weber, Luke Jacobson, Ethan de Groot, Asafo Aumua, Tyrel Lomax, Shannon Frizell, George Bridge and Braydon Ennor who all played for the All Blacks last year.
I thought the Blues blindside flanker Tom Robinson was very unlucky not to make it.
CORRECTION game 5 of the NBA Finals is at 1pm today and NOT yesterday.
PNG Kumuls and Melbourne Storm star AND the reigning Dally M Centre of the year, Justin Olam has confirmed his professional rugby league future, signing an extension which will keep him in the eye of the Storm in Melbourne until at least the end of the 2026 season. Olam has played 76 NRL games so far.
Could giant forward and Penrith star, Viliame Kikau play Five-eighth for the Bulldogs next year? Phil Gould thinks so, after the Fiji Bati enforcer set up Izack Tago’s try with a brilliantly weighted grubber kick v the Knights on Sunday. Kikau leaves Penrith at the end of 2022
In boxing – after fighting his whole career on SKY Sports, the Anthony Joshua World Heavyweight title fight rematch against Oleksandr Usyk in August will take place on streaming site DAZN instead, after his promoter, Eddie Hearn negotiated a lucrative US$135Million-a-year deal with DAZN for Joshua.
Nigeria recorded their biggest international victory, beating Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualification match yesterday.
Have you ever heard of Sao Tome and Principe before?
And finally in tennis – Wimbledon returns to a full house of fans soon for the first time since 2019. And this year, the iconic tennis tournament will distribute over US$50Million in prize money, including US$2.5M each to the Men’s and Women’s winners.
I just love Wimbledon for it’s world famous strawberries on fresh cream.
