Colton and Brendan start off the show with “The Breakdown” presented by O’Neills by talking about the fact that the American Raptors are back to the grindstone after and conclude the segment with All of the Rugby You Can Watch This Weekend. After “The Breakdown”, Colton and Brendan talk about everything that they will be watching for in the MLR this season, some players that they are excited to see, and some of the changes the league is rolling out ahead of 2022. After the chat, Colton assigns some “Required Reading”, and closes the show with “The Loop”.
