Malo and welcome to Episode 44 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on this cloudy Saturday morning 13 August 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
We start with rugby – it’s D Day today for All Blacks Head Coach, Ian Fuzzy Foster at Ellis Park in South Africa when his men run out against the mighty Springboks in their second Test of The Rugby Championship 2022.
So who’s gonna win?
Well our world famous rugby tips are the All Blacks by one point and Los Pumas to smash the Wallabies in San Juan, Argentina.
“Look over your shoulders, we’re coming,” South Sydney superstar, Latrell Mitchell fired a clear warning to the rest of the NRL competition after Souths absolutely smashed Parramatta Eels 26-0 at CommBank Stadium last night.
One more result from the NRL, Melbourne Storm 16-0 Panthers OUCH!
Sadly some media are reporting that former Cowboys Head Coach, Paul Green who passed away a couple of days ago at only 49 years old, took his own life. Rest in Peace Greenie.
In football – Real Madrid Skipper Karim Benzema and teammate Thibaut Courtois, and Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne are the final three nominees for the 2021-22 UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award. The winner will be named – along with the UEFA Men’s Coach of the Year and Women’s Player and Coach of the Year during the UEFA Champions League group stage draw in Istanbul on Thursday 25 August.
And just in case you blinked and missed it – Tyson Fury has announced his second retirement from boxing after failing to entice Derek Chisora into a trilogy fight.
Just a day or so ago, the 34-year-old Gypsy King revealed he would step back into the ring to fight Chisora, who he has twice beaten before.
Fury turned 34 yesterday and the WBC World Heavyweight champion didn’t give a reason for his change of heart.
