Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 08 Episode 53 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 25 February 2024.

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

In rugby league

The Melbourne Storm brushed Kalyn Ponga and the Newcastle Knights aside 10-28 in sweltering conditions at Churchill Park in Lautoka, Fiji yesterday afternoon.

Fiji Bati reps Tui Kamikamica for the Storm and the Saifiti twins for Newcastle were local fan favourites.

There was quite the comical moment in the 66th minute when Jacob Saifiti made a late hit on Melbourne’s Tui Kamikamica, sparking a brief scuffle between the two sides.

But when the referee wanted to penalise the Knights, Daniel Saifiti approached the referee as Jacob was swiftly taken off in a cheeky attempt to confuse the twins.

The referee saw through the Knights’ ploy, summoning Jacob from the bench to place him on report and send him to the sin bin.

“Oh, hang on, the old switcheroo,” Fox League’s Andrew Voss remarked.

“The brothers Saifiti, oh, that’s so clever, Newcastle. I’m standing and applauding. That’s a beautiful piece of play. A brilliant piece of rugby league right there.”

And a rampaging Mikaele Ravalawa burst through for a try, to give the Dragons an early three tries to zero lead. Then star Tigers recruit, Justin Olam limped off with a hamstring injury in a bitter blow for the Tigers.

The impressive Dragons dominated the woeful Tigers, scoring six tries to three for a 34-18 win at Glen Willow Stadium in Mudgee.



In football

The reign of the hugely unpopular Glazer family at Manchester United is finally over – but how much will really change at Old Trafford?

British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe had finally completed a part-takeover of the iconic club after a 15-month process, buying an initial 27.7 per cent in a deal worth just under US$647Million

That’ll rise to 28.9 per cent by the end of the year, with Ratcliffe investing another US$65Million by 31 December.

US$300M of the cash has been dedicated to go towards stadium upgrades.

Good riddance to the Glazers!

In SportsBiz

Warner Bros. Discovery reported a US$103Million profit last year from its direct-to-consumer division, which includes its Max platform that continues to elevate its college and pro sports content.

The figure dramatically reversed a US$1.6Billion loss in 2022.

Such a financial milestone in streaming has yet to be reached by major competitors Disney, Comcast, or Paramount. 

So that’s a wrap!
