Malo and welcome to Episode 39 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on this beautiful Monday morning 08 August 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
We start with rugby – Micahel Cheika’s plan for Los Pumas to run Australia into the ground in the sticky humidity of Mendoza on Sunday backfired badly as the Wallabies second half surge produced 31 points to overrun the legless and punchy Argentina 26-42.
Can you trust Cheika? Maybe he . . .
Meanwhile the under pressure All Blacks must win their next Rugby Championship test in South Africa to prevent the sacking of Head Coach, Ian Foster and probably Captain Sam Cane as well, by New Zealand Rugby.
Do you think the boys will do it?
In AFL – NINE News is reporting in Australia that AFL superstar, Lance “Buddy” Franklin has informed the Swans that he won’t be playing in Sydney next year.
His beautiful wife – whatshername wants to move to Queensland to be closer to family, so Buddy hopes to roar with the Brisbane Lions.
In the NRL – The Cowboys continued their stellar season with a hard fought 28-14 win over the gallant Bulldogs in Bundaberg yesterday, with Scott Drinkwater at his attacking best scoring back-to-back tries.

And finally in squash – the Australian squash player Donna Lobban who vowed to bring “mental warfare” against her Scottish husband when they faced off in the mixed doubles quarter-final said after she beat him, “We’re not signing divorce papers yet, I think we’re still alright.”
