Colton Strickler starts the show with ‘The Breakdown’ by talking about Sakaria Taulafo’s signing with Rugby United New York, the weekly Super Rugby update (it’s bad this week), and the first fixtures of Premiership Rugby’s restart (that’s a good thing). Following ‘The Breakdown’, Colton chats with former Raptor Mike Tafel about the early days of the Glendale Raptors teams, why he loves rugby, and how far he’s seen the sport come in a short period of time. After the conversation, Colton assigns some important required reading and closes the show with some exciting news about how to watch the 2019 RugbyTown 7s Rebroadcast and about some exciting written content coming out in the next few weeks in ‘The Loop.’
