  • Tony Ridnell

    You had a 6’6″ 260 lb guy in tears, watching the Coach Matt segment at the 15:20 mark. Great job spreading news of the American Rugby landscape, thanks for the mention. We can do this.

      Chang isnt going anywhere. But they should at least put you on that board of misdirection.

    • Cute girl

      Great job on your segment!

    As always, loved Matt’s show, the growth of Rugby in youth and High School thanks to Mark Griffin, Joe Kelly & other dedicated people. Great to hear from 2 rugby greats~Seamus Kelly and Phadria Knight gave their wonderful insights on rugby growth & being an Eagle at WRC.

    The need for new innovative people on the USAR Board is absolutely essential for youth & high school to progress into college & National programs is tantamount for us to grow with other sports. It begins with someone with numerous years of rugby and business expertise, & l nominate Tony Ridnell as new Chairman of the Board of USAR. See his video on Facebook, in groups~Women’s Rugby, Rugby Friends etc.

    At the risk of sounding jaded I must say I tire of podcast bringing out the same old people. I’ve heard McClain, Tolkin etc to last a lifetime. Get some different voices.

      You must hate the Ruggamatrix America Podcast.
