Colton Strickler starts the show with ‘The Breakdown’ by breaking down the most recent Major League Rugby and USA Rugby news before jumping into the weekly Super Rugby, Premiership Rugby, and PRO14 updates. Following the explosion of news in ‘The Breakdown’, Colton chats with Collegiate All-American and original Glendale Raptor Josh Schmitz about his rugby career, the start of the Raptors organization, and what he’s been up to since he retired in 2010. After the interview portion of the show, Colton closes the show with an update on what’s going on with the Raptors in ‘The Loop.’
