Colton kicks off the show with “The Breakdown” presented by O’Neills by recapping the American Raptors Round 1 loss to Selknam, previews the upcoming match against Penarol, and All of the Rugby You Can Watch this weekend presented by Wintergreen (0:00-9:42). After “The Breakdown”, Colton talks with American Raptors lock Max Dacey about the Round 1 loss, bouncing back against Penarol, and what to look for in Round 2 (9:43-24:15). Colton then checks in for the third time this tour with the road dog, American Raptors Rugby Coordinator Scott Nies about the second leg of the trip, airport rankings, and his thoughts on the league (24:18-33:52).
