Colton starts the show with “The Breakdown” presented by O’Neills by talking about the latest Colorado XO news, a whole lot of MLR stuff, and all of the rugby you can watch this weekend (0:00-10:37). After “The Breakdown”, Colton talks with former University of Northern Colorado Bear and 2021 Major League Rugby draft prospect Zach Bastres. They talk about the Major League Rugby draft, The Rugby Showcase, and Zach’s rugby career (10:39-29:32). After the interview, Colton assigns some “Required Reading” and talks about RugbyTown 7s in “The Loop” (29:33-31:35).
Zach Bastres is from Erie, Colorado, and played outside center and wing for the University of Northern Colorado bears rugby team before entering into the 2021 Major League Rugby draft.
