Talofa, Ma’lele’i, Bula and welcome to Season 7 Episode 79 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 24 December 2023.

Just one more sleep to Christmas!

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

In rugby union

According to OPTA, no player won more breakdowns or jackal turnovers than Springbok star Kwagga Smith in 2023, when tallying up the players’ totals for both club and country.

Smith won 27 jackals at the breakdown in total, for the Springboks and his Japanese Club side, Shizuoka Blue Revs, and claimed an impressive 40 turnovers from ball carriers.

In rugby league

Forward packs are the engine room of every NRL Club and their importance can’t be understated to a team’s success.

The NRL competition’s heavyweights boast the best packs in the league, including:

The Dolphins, with 2024 season pack rating of “C+” with Props: Tom Flegler and Jesse Bromwich, Hooker Jeremy Marshall-King, Backrowers Felise Kaufusi and Connelly Lemuelu and Lock Tom Gilbert.

The Dolphins marquee recruit for 2024 – Broncos gun Tom Flegler will be a rock in their pack to lift their rating.



In football

Manchester City won the Club World Cup for the first time to end 2023 with five trophies after a 4-0 win over Brazilian champions, Fluminense in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday.

Man City’s win was never in doubt once Julian Alvarez opened the scoring inside the first minute, before a first-half own goal realistically ended the Brazilians’ dreams of an upset, and then Phil Foden and Alvarez again rounded off the scoring in the final 20 minutes.

In SportsBiz

NBA icon Michael Jordan’s 2023 royalty cheque from Nike for their sales of his “Jordan” brand range — which uses the iconic “Jumpman” logo, will hit US$330Million this year.

As such, MJ is the first ever athlete to crack Forbes’ annual list of the 400 richest people in America with his net worth soaring to US$4.7Billion.

His contract with Nike — and the deal Jordan negotiated back in 1984 has been described as the “greatest sports business deal in history”.

The real scary part is; that the five per cent royalty on sales that Jordan receives will explode in coming years with Nike setting ambitious targets for the brand’s growth.

In Combat Sports

Jai Opetaia didn’t care who was in front of him. The message was going to be delivered that he is still the baddest cruiserweight on the planet.

Ellis Zorro was the unfortunate victim, as an overhand left flattened the unbeaten, but overmatched Brit at 2:56 of round one this morning in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

As expected, Cuban heavyweight, Frank Sanchez proved to be too good for Kiwi-Tongan Junior Fa, knocking him down in round six before finishing off the brave Fa in round seven with two more vicious knockdowns in the opening fight this morning.

And that’s a wrap!
