Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula and Welcome to Season 08 Episode 22 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 22 January 2024.

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

In rugby union

Lawyers representing Wallabies star Kurtley Beale say CCTV video from the night of an alleged sexual assault is “at odds” with some claims from the alleged victim.

Police allege the former NSW Waratahs star forced a 28-year-old woman to have oral sex with him in the toilets of Bondi’s Beach Road Bar on 18 December 2022.

Beales’ lawyer told the Court “We have evidence the woman who makes these accusations followed Mr Beale into the toilet and not the other way around.”

In rugby league

The Las Vegas-bound NRL clubs – the Broncos, Roosters, Rabbitohs and Sea Eagles are reportedly calling for an urgent meeting with the NRL as confusion grows around players getting visas.

The Clubs are worried whether all their players will be granted visas to be able to enter the US, let alone play in Vegas.



In football

Real Madrid scraped a controversial and dramatic 3-2 win over winless Almeria that left La Liga’s bottom team furious.

Madrid trailed 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu before Jude Bellingham converted a penalty and Vinicius Junior used his upper arm to divert home an equaliser, before they scored a last-gasp winner in the 99th minute.

Madrid had three key VAR decisions in their favour, including Vinicius’ goal which Almeria considered handball, an Almeria goal ruled out and the penalty given to Madrid.

“We’ve been robbed,” complained Almeria midfielder Gonzalo Melero. His teammate Marc Pubill told DAZN, “Someone decided that we weren’t allowed to win here at Bernabéu today, and that’s what happened. Nothing more.”

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti disagreed, “I think the VAR decisions were well judged,” he told reporters.

In SportsBiz

Since its debut last fall, the Sphere in Las Vegas is increasingly becoming a sports fixture.

Now, the next-generation venue is raising its rates for its LED display during the week leading up to Super Bowl LVIII.

Display time on the Sphere that initially sold for US$450,000 per day and US$650,000 per week has risen to between US$1Million and US$2M per day, closing in on the 11 February Super Bowl at nearby Allegiant Stadium. 

In fact, the Sphere has already sold out its Super Bowl week advertising. 

In combat sports

After Dricus Du Plesis stripped Sean Strickland of his UFC Middleweight title at UFC297 last weekend, the fans are all screaming for an “African Showdown” against former champ Israel Adesanya in the upcoming UFC300.

But the Kiwi-Nigerian UFC star will have nothing of it, citing an injury and saying that he will not be ready.

Finally in the NFL

Two-time MVP Patrick Mahomes connected with Travis Kelce for the tight end’s second touchdown of the game, helping the Kansas City Chiefs to a sixth straight AFC Championship game in pipping the Buffalo Bills 24-27.

With it, the duo passed Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski for the most touchdowns by a quarterback-receiver duo in NFL postseason history with 16.

Meanwhile Travis’ bro Jason, was pictured shirtless in a VIP box with Taylor Swift.

So exactly which Kelce bro is Taylor’s main Swiftie squeeze?

And that’s a wrap!
