MLR Weekly: N.E. Head Coach Scott Mathie, Rumors, Moves & NCR College Playoff Preview

Please Share.

QUINCY, MA – With best-case-scenario smoke billowing from the MLR conclave, the MLR Weekly staff sees 13 Major League Rugby teams competing in 2024. That would be great news… However, there is but ONE CHAMPION returning, the New England Free Jacks. Also returning is Head Coach Scott Mathie, who is the first MLR skipper to return after winning the [Insert Name] Shield. Bing it, if you don’t believe it. And unlike the curmudgeonly Head Coach of the disintegrating nearby Patriots, Mathie is a likeable, open sort who is simply very good at what he does. This makes for a great interview – for all rugby fans…

Also included, a NCR College Playoff Preview with Zach Lanning, and rumors, news, moves and updates from John Fitzpatrick of Rugby Morning and Bryan Ray of Americas Rugby News.
