Colton starts off the show with “The Breakdown” presented by O’Neills by talking about the American Raptors’ Fall 2022 schedule, the Raptors scrimmage with the USA Eagles, the Women’s Rugby World Cup schedule, and All of the Rugby You Can Watch this weekend presented by Wintergreen. After “The Breakdown”, Colton talks about the Baltimore Ravens wide receivers using a rugby ball to warm up, revisits a conversation he had with Colorado XO scrum-half turned Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Michael Bandy about how playing rugby for five months made catching a football easier and looks at if this tactic is helping the Ravens so far. He also talks up a few Raptors that have caught his eye during the first few weeks of the fall season. After the interview presented by GuardLab, Colton talks about autumn in the Stat of the Week presented by Catapult, assigns some “Required Reading”, and closes the show with “The Loop” presented by First Bank.
