Colton Strickler kicks off this week’s episode with some big news in the rugby world. Colton leads off ‘The Breakdown’ by dissecting some of the details in the USA Rugby – City of Glendale announcement, updates you on the status of Aspen Ruggerfest, and touches on this weekend’s Super Rugby matches. After that, he jumps into a conversation with Colorado Raptors’ Performance Analyst Travis Haugen for an in-depth look at his job. He talks about what a typical week looks like for him, how he got his job, and how he learned to do his job. Following the interview, Colton assigns some ‘Required Reading’ and sets the bar high for his episode next week.
