Colton Strickler starts the show with ‘The Breakdown’ by talking about Major League Rugby’s recent announcement regarding the start dates for the 2021 season, and previews the rugby that will be taking place in South Africa over the next few weeks. Following the ‘The Breakdown’, Colton talks with United State’s Women’s XV head coach Rob Cain about his background, the team’s two-month residency program in preparation for the 2021 Rugby World Cup, and what he hopes to accomplish over the next few weeks. After the interview, Colton assigns some ‘Required Reading‘ and closes the show with ‘The Loop.’
