Colton and Brendan kick off the show with “The Breakdown” presented by O’Neills by talking about the inaugural Challenge Cup of the Americas tournament, all of the Major League Rugby drama, the MLR playoffs, and All of the Rugby You Can Watch this weekend presented by Wintergreen. After “The Breakdown”, Colton asks Brendan some hard-hitting questions about the MLR playoffs, the Gilgronis and Giltinis punishments, and his pick for the final. After the interview presented by GuardLab, Colton provides an update on try scorers in the Stat of the Week presented by Catapult, assigns some “Required Reading”, and closes the show with “The Loop” presented by First Bank.
