June 10, 2021 - Major League Rugby (MLR) YouTube Video
Through 12 weeks of the season, Major League Rugby remains extremely competitive. The parity from the top to the bottom of the Eastern Conference will take a Battle Hardened team into the final. A healthy and resurgent San Diego is putting pressure on both Austin and Utah. The Warriors find a way to win and hold onto second place in the West ahead of their showdown with the Legion.
Joe Pietersen, the veteran fly-half has marshalled the San Diego attack for the past three seasons. He sits down to discuss what keeps him coming back to play for San Diego and about their season so far.
Commissioner George Killebrew joins the show to discuss the progress of Major League Rugby over the past twelve weeks and how the league continues to make massive gains commercially off the field. He discusses the purpose of connecting the pathway between collegiate rugby and MLR in the United States as well as the upcoming #MLRDraft set for August 19th.
