NEW YORK, NY – While the first Head Coach dismissal in Major League Rugby looms in the background, 6 teams are fighting for their playoff lives. With that, Bryan Ray of Americas Rugby News and our Matt McCarthy try to make sense of it all in this Week 90 installment of our Fantasy Sports Network show. Included in their #MLR segment:
–Dan Moor’s statement try for the Toronto Arrows
–Chad London with Rugby Town USA’s biggest try of the season?
-BIG late-season acquisitions
–Sleepy In Seattle?
–Paul Emerick taking over SaberCats
-Canadian Doom for Legion?
–RUNY’s Roughed-Up Roosters
And be sure to look for this week’s other installment, featuring Springboks legend Bryan Habana and Play Rugby USA’s Wil Snape-Rogers in the studio.
Thanks to Wil and the stellar people at Play Rugby USA, we had a special week. Along with weepily seeing firsthand the continued life-changing work PRUSA does/has been doing, they had their Athlete Giving Back Award winner, Bryan Habana in town. But Mr. Habana, whose incredible rugby career includes just about every imaginable accolade , is no ordinary recipient. With limited time and and a full schedule, he managed to carve about a big part of his stay to interact with inner-city kids in the South Bronx and join Mr. Snape-Rogers on our show to underscore/extol the value of supporting Play Rugby USA . Of course, host Matt McCarthy did manage to sneak in a few Hanbana-related rugby questions, including:
-Favorite Springboks Moment
-Least Favorite Coach
–Bulls or Stormers?
-Facing Perry Baker & Carlin Isles
–USA Rugby 7s Global Impact
-Working with Sean Fitzpatrick
-Playing with Mathieu Bastareaud for #RUNY next year
–Alex Corbisiero from Gym to Pitch
-Suiting up for Old Boys with New York Rugby Club‘s Gentlemen of NY
-Life after rugby?
