Talofa, Ma’lele’i, Bula and welcome to Season 07 Episode 74 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 18 December 2023.

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

In rugby league

As the Jarome Luai – Wests Tigers deal plays out, a controversial new rule makes the chase more complex.

Under the new CBA, there is a 10-day cooling off period after a player receives an offer they’re willing to accept from another Club.

That gives the player’s former Club – in this case the Panthers, a chance to negotiate and potentially up their offer if they would like.

Those 10 days also gives the player the option to change his mind if he wants to. Once the 10 day period ends, the player is free to sign with either Club.

Staying with Wests Tigers – you gain some, you lose some: Flyer Junior Tupou has reportedly accepted an offer from Wayne Bennett’s Dolphins to move north to Queensland in 2025 and Benji Marshall won’t stand in the way of his move despite being keen on retaining Tupou beyond 2024.

In rugby union

A month after claiming World Rugby’s biggest prize, Ardie Savea has claimed the Kelvin R Tremain Memorial Player of the Year at the New Zealand Rugby Awards.

It is the second time Savea has received the top honour, while he was also named the All Blacks Player of the Year for the third consecutive year.

The World 7s Series winning All Blacks and Black Ferns 7s teams were each recognised with the Men’s team named Adidas New Zealand Team of the Year and Women’s Coach Cory Sweeney the ASB New Zealand Coach of the Year.



In football

UEFA Champions League Last 16 first round games: FC Porto vs Arsenal, Napoli vs Barcelona, Paris vs Real Sociedad, Inter vs Atletico de Madrid, PSV vs Borussia Dortmund, Lazio vs Bayren Munich, Coppenhagen vs Man City and Leipzig vs Real Madrid.

In Combat Sports

Australian-Samoan World Champion, Jai Opetaia has blown up at the IBF after they stripped him of his IBF Cruiserweight title for taking a US$450,000 payday in Saudi Arabia on 23 December against England’s Ellis Zorro (17-0, 7 KO’s).

Opetaia reportedly has a couple of million dollars more coming his way in a three-fight deal that’s in the works with the Saudis.

But fighting on the “Day of Reckoning” card which also features Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Joseph Parker and Daniel Dubois means snubbing the IBF’s mandatory title defence – against Mairis Briedis, who Opetaia beat last year to win the belt despite suffering a broken jaw in two places.

In SportsBiz

They didn’t get the win at the PNC Championship, but Tiger Woods and his son Charlie once again stole the show on the final day of the exhibition event at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando.

Charlie Woods only turns 15 in February, drove a green 325M away, and also showcased a sharp touch around the greens.

The highlight was when Charlie Woods expertly chipped in for birdie and capped off the magic moment with a fist-pump that was reminiscent of his famous father in his prime.

Tiger Woods watched and applauded while visibly beaming with pride.

Kaching – show me the money Nike!

And that’s a wrap!
