Talofa, Ma’lele’i, Bula and welcome to Season 05 Episode 85 of Breakfast Bites, the FIJI & PACIFIC SPORTS NEWS PODCAST, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika people’s sports news on a bright and sunny Friday morning 30 June 2023.

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

In rugby

Results from the World Rugby U20 Championship Round Two games in South Africa where there were two big upsets today: Italy zapped South Africa 26-34 and Georgia whacked Argentina 0-20.

In other games: Ireland 30-10 Australia, France 35-14 New Zealand, Wales 41-19 Japan and Fiji was outmuscled by England 53-7 with live coverage spoiled by irritatingly biased English commentators.

In rugby league

Amid speculation over the future of NSW Blues Coach Brad Fittler, Craig Bellamy gave an unwavering “no” when asked about his interest in returning to a State of Origin coaching role with NSW, declaring his focus is only on the Melbourne Storm.

Bellamy endured an unsuccessful stint as NSW Blues Coach in three series from 2008-2010, put his commitment to the Storm, where he will coach in 2024 for potentially his last season, as his sole priority.

In Sportsbiz

According to a report from the New York Post, Connor McGregor was set to partner with the Miami Heat next season, making his cryo pain spray ‘Tidl Sports’ an official sponsor of the team, but they have since backed out due to recent controversies surrounding the Irishman.

After a couple of regrettable incidents, Miami Heat executives are quietly letting that deal go down for the count.

At just one Miami Heat game last month, OK it was Game 4 of the NBA finals, McGregor went nuts; knocking out Miami Heat mascot Burnie that sent the man inside the suit into hospital.

The UFC star was later accused of raping a woman inside a private VIP bathroom on the same night, which he denies.

McGregor has not fought in the UFC in nearly two years and is yet to announce the date of his next fight.



In football

Excitement for next month’s FIFA Women’s World Cup continues to grow Down Under. 

Co-host Australia has already sold out its 20 July opening game against Ireland at the 80,000-seat Stadium Australia. Women’s World Cup organisers say fellow co-host New Zealand’s opening match against Norway the same day is also expected to sell out at Auckland’s 40,000-capacity Eden Park.

Meanwhile, Brazil has named legendary number 10, considered by many the greatest female footballer ever – Marta, to lead a fresh-faced Brazil to the women’s FIFA World Cup when the tournament kicks off in Sydney and Auckland.

At age 37, Marta will be playing in her sixth World Cup, after battling back from a knee injury that sidelined her for nearly a year.

In boxing

Rising US heavyweight hope, Jared ‘Big Baby’ Anderson 14-0 (14 KOs) is chomping at the bit to face former IBF champ ‘Prince’ Charles Martin 29-3-1 in Toledo, Ohio tomorrow night.

The 23-year-old, who will be fighting in his hometown, will be looking to keep his impeccable knockout record alive with another early finish.

Southpaw Martin, 37, has only been stopped by Anthony Joshua seven years ago in a loss that cost him his IBF title, and later against perennial contender Luis ‘King Kong’ Ortiz in January last year, a fight he was leading on two of the scorecards at the time of the stoppage.

And that’s a wrap!
