Colton begins the show with “The Breakdown” by talking about the latest Colorado XO news, what’s going on with Premier Rugby 7s, and all of the rugby you can watch this weekend (0:00-9:10). After “The Breakdown”, Colton catches up with the voice of Major League Rugby Dan Power. The two talk about the Major League Rugby Championship Series, whether Dan would be a scratch golfer or go to space, and how close he was to becoming an NFL punter (9:15-41:11). After the interview, Colton assigns some “Required Reading” and talks about what’s coming up in “The Loop” (41:13-44:57).
