Colton starts the show with “The Breakdown” by talking about some of the biggest MLR news, the USA Eagles roster ahead of this weekend’s match, a women’s Stars vs. Stripes scrimmage, and all of the rugby you can watch this weekend (0:00-9:53). Following “The Breakdown”, Colton connects with rugby journalist Joe Harvey about his thoughts on the 2021 Major League Rugby season, what he’s expecting to see out of the USA Eagles this weekend when they take on England, and who the greatest cricket player of all time is (Colton doesn’t know anything about cricket) (9:55-1:02:30). After the interview, Joe Harvey assigns some “Required Reading” and talks about what’s coming up in “The Loop” (1:02:32-1:05:33).

Joe Harvey has covered Major League Rugby since 2019 for the league website, Talking Rugby Union, and now contributes to The Rugby Network. On top of that, he covers all levels of rugby across the United Kingdom and beyond. Follow Joe on Twitter @JoeHarvey34.
