Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 09 Episode 18 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 Sunday morning 21st April 2024.

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

In rugby union

Japan won the World Rugby Pacific Challenge 2024 following a 65-15 thrashing of Tonga A at Apia Park on Saturday.

It was their third straight bonus-point win of the tournament having earlier beaten Samoa 5-48 and defending champions Fiji Warriors 43-45.

The Fijians, coached by Senirusi Seruvakula came second after a 43-18 victory over Samoa A in their final match.

The World Rugby-funded tournament features predominantly under-23 residential players. 

In rugby league

Reece Walsh was on fire with a classy double, while Jamal Fogarty suffered a suspected ruptured bicep in the Broncos 34-10 win over the Raiders at Suncorp Stadium.

The Kiwi star finished with 140M run, a whopping nine tackle busts, three line breaks and two tries in another brilliant display.

Kangaroos Coach Mal Meninga was overflowing with praise for Walsh: “Honestly we’ve already said it all before about him, but just his speed, his deception, his deception off the ball and his great evasive skills. He’s the complete package,” Meninga said.



In football

Bernardo Silva made amends for his midweek penalty miss as holders Manchester City returned to the FA Cup final with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Chelsea.

Silva badly fluffed his lines as City were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League on penalties by Real Madrid on Wednesday but he fired the match winner as they bounced back at Wembley.

The Portugal international turned home the only goal of a tight encounter six minutes from time, to keep alive City’s hopes of retaining the domestic double.

In SportsBiz

Netflix is ending its customary quarterly reporting of subscriber totals.

The publicly traded streaming giant said that it will no longer disclose those subscriber numbers, starting with the first quarter of 2025, and will instead focus on other financial metrics such as revenue and operating margin. 

The shift jolted Wall Street, prompting a 7% drop in Netflix shares in trading through Friday. 

Netflix already has the largest subscriber base in the industry, reaching 269.6 million globally in its last quarter, a figure 16% higher than a year ago.

Company officials say a continued focus on subscriber totals is not in line with its growth into a more mature company, that is developing additional revenue sources, such as advertising. 

In combat sports

Ryan Garcia weighed in a whopping 1.45Kg over the Super Lightweight limit for his WBC world title fight with unbeaten Devin Haney at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York today.

After missing weight, Garcia chugged a beer at the weigh-in, later claiming it was apple juice and sparkling water, and took to social media to bizarrely hint he deliberately missed weight.

“I feel great and I got a 3-pound advantage,” Garcia wrote. “Winners do what they have to do I’m still sharp.”

At yesterday’s final press conference Garcia was baited by Haney into accepting a bet to pay US$500,000 for every pound he weighed in over the limit – Haney has since confirmed that Garcia has honoured his US$1.5Million bet.

Last minute negotiations ensured the fight will go ahead, but Haney’s WBC world title belt is no longer on the line. Should he lose, the belt will instead become vacant.

And that’s a wrap!
