Malo and welcome to Season 2 Episode 92 by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on this bright and sunny Friday morning 30 September 2022, coming to you from paradise on the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
In rugby – Bundee Aki will miss Ireland’s autumn internationals against South Africa and Fiji as he received an eight-week ban following his red card for Connacht last weekend. The crack Centre was given his marching orders for a dangerous shoulder-to-head clear out on Stormers Wing Seabelo Senatla in their United Rugby Championship clash on Saturday.
In rugby league – he’s back, and Eels enforcer Nathan Brown says the speculation of a rift between him and Head Coach Brad Arthur is rubbish. The 29-year-old hasn’t played since Round 17 but has earned a sensational recall for the Eels grand final against cross-town rivals — the Panthers.
When the Parramatta Eels take on the Newcastle Knights in the NRL Women’s Grand-final on Sunday, watch out for 17-year-old halfback Jesse Southwell to play the house down. Immortal Andrew Johns declare she will be “the best player in the competition in a couple of years”.
In football – the EPL starts up again tomorrow with Arsenal-Tottenham then on Sunday Bournemouth-Brentford, Crystal Palace-Chelsea, Liverpool-Brighton and the big one on Monday Man City-Man U. Wanna bet Erik10 the Viking will bless the Pope – Pep G?
In boxing – you gotta hand it to Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Based in Las Vegas, Mayweather hasn’t fought in the US since the McGregor fight in 2017. Right now Floyd is happy facing social media stars and TikTok influencers for million-dollar purses, although nobody can say for sure how much.
Finally for all you Pasifika volleyballers, a new professional US Women’s Volleyball League has raised US$16.8Million in investor funding from the likes of Billie Jean King, Kevin Durant and others for a comp kicking off across the US later this year.
