Malo and welcome to Season 3 Episode 17 of Breakfast Bites, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on this beautiful Monday morning 17 October 2022, coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with our cheerleaders back from New Zealand!
Go Fijiana Go – the rugby girls from Fiji, at their first ever Women’s Rugby World Cup, kicked off with less than a minute to go 14-17 down against South Africa, re-gathered the ball with the star of the match big lock Siteri Rasolea storming 30M downfield brushing aside three tacklers to set up another drive with Number 8 Nacewa crashing over for a converted try and the 21-17 win.
In other results from yesterday in Auckland, Canada 22-12 Italy, the Black Ferns 56-12 Wales.
In rugby league – Manly’s Head Coach-in-waiting, Anthony Seibold flew out to London yesterday to join England but not for the RLWC.
Seibs has gone for the November rugby internationals, with the Rugby Football Union expecting he will fulfil his commitments for their vital rugby union Tests alongside Eddie Jones.
Seibold’s world has been flipped upside down, with the 48-year-old set to return to the NRL as Manly’s Head Coach after the Sea Eagles sacked Des Hasler last Thursday.
Seibs told FOX Sports that he would “see what happens over the coming days” regarding his future and he clarified “no deal has been done with Manly as yet”.
In netball – Australia only lost one of the four quarters in last night’s Constellation Cup Test Two to New Zealand, but they head home defeated after another fade out.
The Diamonds won both the first and final terms, and held their own for the second – but a third-quarter horror show cost the Aussies the win as they fell 52-48.
In football – the Kylian Mbappe saga at Paris Saint-Germain has taken another bizarre twist with the Club accused of secretly backing an online smear campaign against its megastar.
An investigation by a French news outlet reports that PSG hired a third party to create a fake digital army of Twitter trolls that could attack potential critics, including Mbappe after he first suggested he wanted to leave in March 2019.
PSG has vehemently denied the accusations.
On a more positive note – more than 1,300 fansfrom England and Wales are banned from travelling to Qatar for the FIFA World Cup due to past issues with soccer-related violence at home and overseas.
The U.K.’s Home Office has warned those on the list of a possible six months prison term for defying the ban.
In boxing – BOOM just one BIG right hand punch was all it took for Deontay Wilder to announce he’s back, after he totally annihilated Robert Helenius in the first round of their fight in New York yesterday.
Helenius did not move for a number of seconds before being assisted from the ring.
The BIG question for fight fans is – did he get it off with his partner Telli Swift before this fight . . . and who’s next . . in the ring I mean?
