Malo and welcome to Episode 54 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika peoples sports on this slightly overcast Tuesday morning 23 August 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
And we start with rugby – Fiji 7s 14-Man Squad for the LA7s and for the RWC7s in South Africa: S Mocenacagi, Elia Canakaivata, Joseva Talacolo, Iosefo Masi, Jerry Matana, J Vakurinabili, Filipo Bukayaro, W Nacuqu, Filipe Sauturaga, Kaminieli Rasaku, Manueli Maisamoa, V Naduvalo, Iowane Teba and Jerry Tuwai.
In boxing – “If you want those belts back then send in the Gypsy barbarian. Send me in and I will relieve the Ukrainian dosser of his belts like I did the last Ukrainian dosser, so said Tyson Fury shortly after Usyk beat Joshua.
And for good measure he added, “But it’s not going to be cheap, if you want the best you have to pay. It’s going to be very expensive; so get your cheque book out and I will relieve the Ukrainian dosser of the belts.”
You gotta hand it to Tyson Fury – he is in the perfect storm with reports out already that the Saudi’s want this fight to happen at all costs the day before the FIFA World Cup final in neighbouring Qatar – 17 December this year.
In the NRL – the average winning margin for round 23 was 32.3 points, making it the most lopsided weekend in NRL history. The 466 points scored by all 16 teams was also the most in one round of NRL action. Statistically though, the average margin for the year to date is 16 points, two points lower than last year and close to the 15.1 of 2020.
In football – Ellen White, England women’s football all-time leading goal scorer has retired. The 33-year-old Manchester City and England striker said, “This is my time to say goodbye to football and watch the next generation shine.” White scored 52 goals in 113 games for England.
In the NBA – Michael Jordan’s jersey worn against the Utah Jazz in Game 1 of the 1998 NBA Finals is up for auction at Sotheby’s with bidding between 8-14 September and is expected to sell for up to US$5Million.
