Malo and welcome to Episode 46 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika peoples sports on this beautiful bright and sunny Monday morning 15 August 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
And we start with rugby – where after our world famous prediction of an All Blacks win against all odds at Ellis Park last Saturday; we predict today that The New Zealand Rugby Football Union will not sack Head Coach Ian Fuzzy Foster.
Yes that’s right, they will not sack Fuzzy, BUT they will engineer a changing of the guard with Sam Cane dropped as Captain, replaced by Ardie Savea.
Our final tribute to recently passed NRL Coach, Paul Green, comes from Wayne Bennett – “He was born into rugby league. He played it. He coached it. He loved it and he was a great ambassador for our game. He had a lot of friends in the game. I was thinking about the amount of people that would be affected by what has happened.”
Wayne Bennett was on the losing side of Paul Green’s greatest achievement – the 2015 NRL Grand Final win that gave the Cowboys their maiden NRL Premiership title. “I can’t say that I was pleased for him at the time, but I can say I am pleased for him today,” Bennett said.
Last night at UFC San Diego, we had a changing of the guard as surging contender, Marlon Vera from Ecuador, knocked out former two-time Bantamweight Champion, Dominick Cruz in the 4th round with a kick, which also broke Cruz’s nose for which Vera earned US$300,000 and Cruz scooped US$175,000.
Staying with boxing – Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and Tottenham’s ex-Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte had a ugly confrontation at the final whistle of their two all drawn game in London yesterday with Tuchel shown the red card.
Still in boxing – French Striker, Kylian Mbappe and Brazilian superstar, Neymar had a spat in the changing room after Mbappe missed a penalty and Neymar scored a penalty after refusing to give Mbappe the ball in PSG’s 5-2 win over Montpellier in their opening home game of the new season.
Yeah apparently Mbappe and Neymar had a nasty altercation in the changing room, throwing their undies at each other and bashing each other with their Man Bags, handbags, backpacks of whatever!
