In a quiet week around the rugby world, Colton Strickler kicks off this week’s show with ‘The Breakdown’ by talking about Major League Rugby’s schedule release, some of the key points in the MLR’s latest Zoom press conference, the latest Raptor to head to the beach, and what Mark Cuban did for USA Rugby. Following ‘The Breakdown’, Colton chats with Dan Stone about his unique perspective as one of the only rugby players that attended the RugbyTown Crossover Academy. After chatting with Dan, Colton skips over ‘Required Reading’ for the third week in a row and closes the show with a request to the listeners in ‘The Loop.’

Dan Stone played college rugby at the University of Notre Dame before moving to Colorado to pursue his rugby career. He discovered rugby while competing in track and field in college. Stone has worked his way back from a knee injury and cemented himself as a key player in Glendale’s budding RugbyTown Crossover Academy.
