–Top 14 problems
–Spain, Romania & Russia in World Rugby’s Spanish Inquisition.
And be sure to check out this week’s other segment:
Tucked away on a Bronx street corner, a storied gem of a sports ground was the setting of a historic professional rugby. And while the quirky Gaelic Park has its very own Green Monster, the NY jewel was not friendly to the visitors from Boston. Beantown’s Mystics were drubbed by their inspired hosts, Rugby United NY, who put a half century of points on their rivals from Tom Brady country. For those that attended, it was a glorious New York City event that will stay with them for a long, long time. Two of those present, RUNY owner James Kennedy and #8 Ross Deacon, join host Matt McCarthy in this Week 41 segment of our our Fantasy Sports Network show and the following come into play:
–Owner Kennedy challenging the Major League Rugby/MLR All-Stars to match vs RUNY at Red Bull Arena
–Video highlights of the match, featuring Alex Corbisiero and Phaidra Knight
-The FDNY vs the NYPD
–Mike Petri playing in his 4th Rugby World Cup
–WWE Legend John Bradshaw Layfield letting McCarthy “have it.”
-The infamous bar and sold out stadium.
–Thor as a brunette, in the form of Jake Feury.
