Colton Strickler provides an update on what Major League Rugby suspending the 2020 season for 30 days means in the long run before sitting down for a conversation with Colorado Raptors scrum-half Sean Yacoubian in an attempt to keep the show somewhat normal. Colton talks to Sean about his life, his unique path to St. Mary’s and what it’s like to play for both the Raptors and the Glendale Merlins.

Yacoubian is in his first year with the Raptors after graduating from St. Mary’s. In his appearance against the Utah Warriors, a match that the Raptors won 22-14, Yacoubian carried the ball four times for 26.7 meters gained, made all six of the tackles that he attempted on defense, and passed the ball 20 times.
