Talofa, Ma’lelei’i, Bula and welcome to Season 4 Episode 55 of Breakfast Bites, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on a beautiful Saturday morning 25 February 2023, coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!

In Rugby – yesterday the Fiji Rugby Union appointed Simon Raiwalui as Head Coach of the Flying Fijians, replacing Vern Cotter and Inoke Male to Coach Team Fijiana, replacing Senirusi Seruvakula.

So whatever happened to Scott Razor Robertson shall be consigned to the annals of Fiji Rugby Union history.

In rugby league – Wayne Bennett is threatening to make a bombshell statement in the Dolphins’ first ever NRL game by naming 19-year-old Isaiya Katoa in the halves over Anthony Milford.

The Courier-Mail reported Milford is in danger of being axed with Katoa “told he will make his NRL debut” at five-eighth, alongside halfback Sean O’Sullivan.

It would complete a meteoric rise for Katoa from Penrith’s Jersey Flegg side to the NRL in less than a year.

In boxing – Serbian goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic, who was only introduced to the Sevilla line-up at the last minute after the regular goalkeeper felt unwell prior to the game, was punched in the face in a shocking fan attack during Sevilla’s Europa League defeat to PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands.

In football – this week, Adidas renewed its sponsorship deal with Major League Soccer, reportedly worth US$830Million through 2030 — the company’s largest investment in North American soccer. This allows the MLS to add two more teams per conference for a total of nine each.

Companies continue to invest in Major League Soccer as its franchises prosper; since 2019, Forbes reports the average team value has increased 85% to US$579Million, with a 29th team — St. Louis City SC added for this season, which starts today.

In Sportsbiz – LIV Golf stars have scored a significant victory in their rebellion against the PGA Tour, in that LIV Golf players will be eligible to compete in all four major tournaments this season after the PGA of America gave them the green light.

LIV stars Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, and Martin Kaymer who won the PGA Championship before defecting to the Saudi-backed golf tour.

The PGA of America’s decision came only one day after the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews said all LIV players were cleared to play in the 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool in July.

Augusta National Golf Club previously said LIV golfers would be eligible for the 2023 Masters and U.S. Open.

It’s all about the money honey!
