Talofa, Ma’lelei’i, Bula and welcome to Season 4 Episode 56 of Breakfast Bites, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on a beautiful Sunday morning 26 February 2023, coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!
In Rugby – typically brilliant Fijian Drua snatching the win on the buzzer 36-34 against Moana Pasifika in Auckland yesterday.
Meanwhile at the LA7s right now: Great Britain 7-5 Argentina, France 19-7 Spain, Samoa 26-19 USA, NZ 26-7 Chile, Australia 7-12 Kenya, Fiji 50-0 Japan, the game on right now Ireland-Uruguay and South Africa-Canada to come.
Tonga should really be there in place of Japan.
Anyway, back to Super Rugby, and the BIG question is – where was the Moana Pasifika fans? Obviously the Samoans and Tongans living in Aotearoa have not bought into the team.
Imagine if that game was played in Fiji yesterday?
In rugby league – our world famous tips for the NRL R1: Eels to calm the Storm, NZ Warriors to kapahaka the Knights, Panthers to pongo the Broncos, Bulldogs to woofwoof Manly, Cowboys to wrangle the Raiders, Rabbitohs to bongo the Sharks, Dolphins to roast the Roosters and Wests to press Titans.
In boxing – “You’ve got a deal — all or nothing,” Tommy Fury’s father, former pro boxer and bare-knuckle fighter John, said, pointing at Youtuber Jake Paul. Fury is estimated to make US$4.5Million without pay-per-view buys factored in, which means a win could land him around US$12M.
In football – at least five players of the DC Motema Pembe, a women’s soccer team in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, chased and attacked a referee after he did not grant them a penalty.
The ref was grabbed by several members of the team, with at least one of them throwing a punch and another player added a jump kick as stadium staff tried to break up the attack.
In the end, the team chased the referee off the pitch.
DC Motema Pembe was trailing 5-1 to their opponents when the incident occurred in the second-largest city in the Congo.
I am truly speechless – probably best not to say anything anyway, except maybe – “Go girls Go – no?”
