Malo and welcome to Episode 42 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on this beautiful warm but wet Thursday morning 11 August 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

We start with rugby – when you look back into the history of All Blacks versus Springboks clashes, the Kiwis have the upper hand BIG time

with 60 wins against 38 losses and 4 draws.

However, when you factor in Ellis Park, it’s a very different picture; while New Zealand won the first ever Test there in July 1928, the Springboks have won nine of the 13 Tests played there since then.

So it’s a bit of a Springboks fortress.

In rugby league – our world famous Tips for Round 22 of the NRL: Starting tonight we tip the Panthers to pan fry the Storm at BlueBet Stadium, the NZ Warriors to bar-b-q the Bulldogs at Mt Smart, the Eels to stir fry the Rabbitohs at CommBank Stadium and on Saturday at 3pm, the Cowboys to deep fry the Roosters at Sydney Cricket Ground.

Chicken and chips anyone?

Staying with rugby league – With a week before the NRL Womens comp kicks off, players and coaches have slammed a new NRLW Judiciary Code as sexist because someone in the NRL has lazily cut and paste the NRL Mens code into the NRL Womens code, SO where a two-match ban is 8% of the NRL season for the Men it is 40% of the much shorter NRLW season. And the fines are disproportionately also much higher for the NRLW players because they get paid much much less.

In football – FIFA President Gianni Infantino has welcomed the pan-continental Africa Super League which will see 24 Clubs from 16 countries competing in this new pan-African competition EURO-style from August 2023. The competition will offer US$100Million in prize money with US$11.6M for the winner.

In boxing – and I quote, “He’s a stud,” that’s what UFC Prez Dana White said yesterday about Bo Nickal, the three-time NCAA wrestling champ who had another big win in Dana White’s Contender Series in Las Vegas over Zachary Borrego in just 62 seconds; his first two pro bouts not even lasting a round.

“He’s a stud” – ummmm a bit rich for my liking.
