Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 09 Episode 21 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 Wednesday morning 24th April 2024.

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

In rugby union

All eyes are on the Fijiana Drua defending their title for the third straight year; this time against the NSW Waratahs in the Super W Final, and no doubt once again it will be in a mainly empty stadium in Brisbane on Sunday, except for Fijian fans – so why not hold it in Fiji?

In rugby league

NRL ANZAC Round – watch out for Melbourne Storm hosting South Sydney tomorrow at 7:50pm at AAMI Park. The Storm got the job done against the Roosters last week and so Craig Bellamy has resisted making any changes. 

In a huge return for the Rabbitohs, Damien Cook has been named to start in the No.9 jersey.



In football

While all eyes are on the battle at the top of the Premier League, The Championship – one rung below on the English football pyramid, is home to a host of fallen giants in a four-horse race for automatic promotion, which is awarded to the top two teams: 1st Leicester City on 91 pts, 2nd Leeds United on 90, 3rd Ipswich Town 89 and 4th Southampton 84 points.

In Sportsbiz

Michael Jordan’s young tenure as a NASCAR team owner is already more successful than his time owning an NBA team.

Tyler Reddick’s victory at Talladega on Sunday marked the first time “His Airness” was in attendance for a race won by one of the drivers at his majority-owned 23XI Racing, which launched in 2021.

“This is, to me, like an NBA playoff game,” Jordan said on Fox Sports from Victory Lane.

In total, 23XI has won six NASCAR Cup Series races on the backs of Reddick, Bubba Wallace, and former team member Kurt Busch. 

In combat sports

How smart is Ryan Garcia?

Garcia claims to have earned over US$50Million from his clash with Devin Haney, combining prize money, pay-per-view shares, and sponsorship deals.

These figures are unconfirmed but plausible given the additional revenue from estimated high volume PPV sales.

“I will let God guide me on how to use this money Amen,” Ryan Garcia celebrated his financial success, with reports surfacing that Garcia had placed a US$2Million bet on himself to win, earning a US$12M payout.

Garcia commented on social media, “If you’re going to bet, bet on yourself.”

While such actions are prohibited in organizations like the UFC, the world of boxing does not have these restrictions, though the rules vary by state.

His previous bout against Gervonta Davis also fetched around US$30M, with substantial earnings from PPV sales as well.

The Garcia vs. Haney fight is rumored to have performed well in PPV sales, with official figures expected soon.

Money! Money! Money!

Finally, only in America

Scottie Scheffler just backed up his second Masters victory with a win at the US$20Million RBC Heritage event on the PGA Tour, good for his fourth victory in his last five starts.

On Sunday, Nelly Korda won the Chevron Championship, the first women’s major of the year, and her fifth tournament in a row, a feat not accomplished since Annika Sorenstam in 2005.

But it’s the pay gap thing that is so noticeable: Scheffler is soaring over Korda’s earnings so far on the LPGA, earning US$18.69M in prize money so far this year, compared to Korda’s $2.42M.

And that’s a wrap!
