Colton Strickler starts the show with ‘The Breakdown’ by talking about the latest Colorado Raptor to be signed by another team, the weekly Super Rugby update, and when to expect PRO14 and Premiership Rugby to get their restart rolling. Following ‘The Breakdown’, Colton has a conversation with former Raptor Jared Heath about playing for some fo the first Glendale Raptors teams, how far rugby has come in a short period of time, and some of his favorite rugby memories. After the conversation, Colton closes the show with ‘The Loop.’

Jared Heath played for the first Glendale Raptors teams in the club’s existence before stepping away from the game due to concussions. Prior to playing for the Raptors, Heath was a standout linebacker at Colorado School of Mines. He earned Don Hansen Division II All-American honorable mention honors in 2005 and holds school records for most tackles in a single game (21), most assisted tackles in a season (79), and most assisted tackles in a career (246).
