Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 09 Episode 76 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 Saturday morning 22nd June 2024.

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

In rugby league

Neither side deserved to lose last night, but in the end the Melbourne Storm were too good, with their halfback Jahrome Hughes proving the difference in beating the Dolphins 24-30 in a thrilling, end-to-end contest at Suncorp Stadium that cements the Storm top of the NRL ladder.

And in the words of his Coach and mentor Wayne Bennett: “He was very good.”

Five minutes after being injected into the game from the bench, Tevita Pangai Junior was placed on report for a late shot on Christian Welch.

Later in the game, he put a big shot on Trent Loeiro.

Speaking post game, James Graham said “Now every single forward in the NRL, when they come up against the Dolphins, are going to want to know where Tevita Pangai Junior is.”

In rugby union

Our World Famous tip for the Super Rugby Pacific Final at 7.05pm tonight at Eden Park in Auckland is for Wallace Sititi to rumble Hoskins Sotutu, allowing for Cortez Ratima and Damian McKenzie to spark the Chiefs backs – at Centre Anton Lienert-Brown to school Reiko Ioane and the back three of Emoni Narawa, Etene Nanai-Seturo and Shaun Stevenson to bambino the Blues.

Meanwhile in Monaco – the final rugby 7s qualifying tournament for the Paris Olympics had to be re-jigged after Papua New Guinea Men’s and Women’s teams didn’t show!

Argentina Women beat Samoa 5-26 and Tonga Men lost 5-14 to Chile in their first Pool games.



In EURO 2024

And the latest EURO 2024 results: Slovakia 1-2 Ukraine, Poland 1-3 Austria and this morning Netherlands vs France are locked nil all in the second half.

Tomorrow: Georgia vs Czech Republic in Hamburg, Turkey vs Portugal in Dortmund and Belgium vs Romania in Cologne.

In the WNBA

The first two WNBA matchups between rookie phenoms Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese did major business for the league—and generated significant controversy.

Round three on Sunday is poised to reach even higher levels. 

Clark’s Indiana Fever and Reese’s Chicago Sky will play Sunday afternoon in Illinois.

The average ticket price of US$271, according to TickPick, makes Sunday’s game the most expensive WNBA contest on record. 

Expectations are sky-high on TV as well, as the second Fever-Sky matchup just five days ago generated an average audience of 2.25 million viewers on CBS, representing the largest audience for the WNBA on any network in 23 years.

In boxing

One day after he announced on social media that he had “officially retired,” Ryan Garcia has been suspended for one year by the New York State Athletic Commission, according to the New York Post.

Garcia, 25, will also have to forfeit the US$1Million he won from his majority decision win over WBC Super Lightweight Champion Devin Haney in April – which is now a no-contest.

In SportsBiz

The Pistons owe Monty Williams US$65Million for firing their Head Coach after just one season.

Only last summer, Detroit made Williams, at the time, the highest-paid Head Coach in the NBA with a US$78.5M contract.

But after they finished with a league-worst record of 14–68 in his first season, which included a 28-game losing streak – the longest in NBA history, they kicked his butt.

Painful oh so painful for the Pistons!

And that’s a wrap!
