Malo and welcome to Episode 57 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika peoples sports on this bright and sunny Friday morning 26 August 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
And we start with rugby – where there is one change to the All Blacks team for the Rugby Championship Test vs Argentina in Christchurch, from the team that won in Johannesburg, with Stephen Perofeta in line to make his Test debut as cover for Richie Mo’unga, because Beauden Barrett is out with a neck injury.
Do you think Beauden is just faking it because he hates losing his All Blacks flyhalf spot to Richie playing at home in front of his family?
Former Fiji Rugby 7s star Taniela Sadrugu will join the Cowboys Top 30 squad in 2023 for one-year as a Centre where he has enjoyed a standout season in the Queensland Cup for the Townsville Blackhawks, making 67 tackle breaks, 44 offloads and scoring six tries in just 14 games.
Don’t know if you remember, a couple of years ago, Sadrugu was in a watertight and secure COVID-safe bubble with the Fiji 7s team in Queensland on their way to the Tokyo Olympics when some sneaky prick from the Cowboys stole in with chocolates and got Sadrugu to switch codes!
You just can’t trust these Aussies!
In football – the UEFA Champions League Pools were drawn in Istanbul this morning with Ajax, Liverpool and Napoli the BIG 3 teams in Pool A. Rangers from Scotland is there also but they will go out in the first round.
Pool B doesn’t matter because there are no EPL Clubs in it.
Same with Pool C except that they have Bayern Munich, FC Barcelona and Inter Milan so one of them will lose out.
Pool D is a weak pool so Eintracht Frankfurt and Tottenham should make it through.
Pool E has AC Milan, Chelsea and FC Salzburg while Pool F has defending champion Real Madrid and RB Leipzig with no hopers Celtic.
Pool G has Man City, Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund and Pool H has the brats from PSG, Juventus and Benfica.
