Malo and welcome to Episode 51 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika peoples sports on this beautiful Saturday morning 20 August 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
And we start with rugby – the Wallabies defence Coach Matt Taylor has resigned, or was he pushed, after their 48 points pasting by Los Pumas in San Juan, Argentina last week. The change caught many Aussies by surprise as they didn’t know the Wallabies even had a defence coach since Eddie Jones left.
Meanwhile the Springboks trip to Australia got off on the wrong foot after their flight yesterday was cancelled. Meanwhile Los Pumas are reportedly making their trip to New Zealand by boat to give Head Coach Ian Fuzzy Foster time to settle back into his old job!!!
In the NRL overnight – PNG Kumuls star Centre, Justin Olam scored a double as the Stormers ran in 10 tries at Suncorp last night to smash the Broncos 60-12. Harry Grant also scored in one of the best games of his career, while Jahrome Hughes, Cameron Munster and Nelson Asofa-Solomona were all massive.
The Cowboys demolished the NZ Warriors with brilliant attacking football where eight Cowboys crossed for tries in a 48-4 win in Townsville – their highest score since the 2015 premiership year – fitting also, in their first home game since the death of former Coach Paul Green.
In boxing – Anthony Joshua will have a 10.5Kg weight advantage when he takes on Oleksandr Usyk tomorrow. Usyk was tipped to be heavier, but the Ukrainian weighed 100.2kg, exactly the same as for the first fight, while Joshua weighed in at 110.7kg, up on the 108.9kg he scaled in London.
In football – the trial of former Manchester United superstar and Britain’s most decorated footballer, Ryan Giggs continues at the Manchester Crown Court hearing a poem that Giggs wrote for his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville on New Year’s Eve in 2017 – the poem is based on the letters of her last name Greville: “G for gorgeous, R for radiant, E for extraordinary, V for vivacious, I for idolised by me, L for legs. L for legs, E for everything I’ve ever wanted.”
And she replied: “Baby what an amazing message to wake up to. I think you’re amazing. I want to reiterate how amazing you are and how happy and amazing you make me feel…” to which Giggs replied: “I think you’re fandabidozy”.
Oh so romantic!
Ryan Giggs is on trial faced with charges of assaulting his former girlfriend Kate Greville and her sister Emma, as well as charges of controlling and coercive behaviour against Greville; which he denies.
