The Colorado Raptors’ preseason is over. Now, it all counts. They wrapped up the last of their preseason matches with a trip to Austin the weekend prior with a 22-21 win over the newly-named Gilgronis. That victory came on the heels of another preseason victory that took place a week earlier in Las Vegas. The Raptors got their preseason started with a 32-26 victory over Rugby ATL after some quality joint training session work with the Toronto Arrows. After two weeks of matches and joint training sessions, the Raptors are feeling good about where they stand heading into the season. Starting with the joint training session with the Arrows, lock Luke White was very pleased with what his team put…

The Colorado Raptors are heading down to Austin, Texas to wrap up their preseason training with an exhibition match against the Herd. After starting the preseason on the right foot with a 36-26 win over Rugby ATL last weekend, the Raptors will look to keep the momentum rolling against a Herd team that went winless in 2019. While and 0-16 isn’t a pretty record by any stretch of the imagination, the Herd were far more competitive than their record indicated. The Raptors beat Austin 24-13 and 38-19 in both of the matches they played last season. You can be sure that they will use their less than ideal performance in 2019 as motivation in 2020. The Raptors will face a…

Another stout defensive performance from the Denver Nuggets — a 95-86 win over the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors — where Michael Malone’s bunch held Toronto to a season low in points has Denver’s coach living on cloud nine. Not necessarily because the Nuggets have the best record in the West, but due to the fact that Denver has risen past the...
