Rugby TV and Podcast: Major League Rugby Analysis, Controversies, Standout Players, Opinion

0 Comments


NEW YORK, NY – If you drew up an over-the-top, suspension-of-reality script and then cast too-good-to-be-true characters at Central Casting, maybe – just maybe – you’d equal the episodic rugby television we witnessed in Major League Rugby Week #1. In this Week #80 of our Fantasy Sports Network show, Matt McCarthy and Steve “The Lizard” Lewis break down each dramatically close match. Their analysis/exchange includes:
Noisy Fans during opponents kicking
Controversial Officiating
Haute Couture
Brock Staller of the Seawolves live on the pitch
-Surprise Results
6 Rugby World Cups between Lou Stanfill & Mike Petri
-Disappointing performances
-Stadiums and Fans
Jesuits vs Jesuits

And it all gets kicked off by one of our favorite people on and off the pitch, Ollie Kilifi.
