Malo and welcome to Season 2 Episode 91 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika peoples sports on this beautiful bright and sunny Thursday morning 29 September 2022 – coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
In rugby – while Dally M winner, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck’s switch to rugby union has been largely successful, earning two All Blacks caps off the bench and helping the Blues reach the Super Rugby Pacific final, RTS has been linked with a bombshell return to the NRL with the Sydney Roosters.
Staying with rugby league – the biggest winner at the NRL Awards night in Sydney last night, Sharks halfback Nicho Hynes capped a sensational season to snatch the 2022 Dally M Medal for Player of the Year!
Hynes won it by the highest tally in the award’s 43-year history finishing on 38 votes, ahead of Roosters fullback James Tedesco on 33 and Dragons halfback Ben Hunt at 32.
Sheriff Todd Peyton picked up Coach of the Year.
In football – Denmark will wear team jerseys at the FIFA World Cup that protest the human rights record of host nation Qatar, with a black option – “the colour of mourning,” unveiled yesterday to honour migrant workers who died during construction work for the tournament.
In boxing – Ukrainian Flyweight fighter, Maryna Moroz with a record of 11 wins and 3 losses will be the first UFC fighter to feature as a Playboy Centrefold. “Playboy is super big for me. I can’t wait to partner up with such an iconic brand with all my exclusive content,” Moroz said.
Ummm I wonder how many guys will check out her next fight versus Jennifer Maia on UFC215 19 November in Las Vegas.
