Major League Rugby on the Weekend

Major League Rugby, North America: Upcoming the Weekend, 2.22
Friday, 2.22th:
               Houston SabreCats (5) v (7) Toronto Arrows in Texas, 6pm MST: visitors are on a lost-won-lost pattern, most recent action a disappointing loss in the Northwest; home team are won-lost form thus far in 2019 and are coming off the bye; both should expect the win should they continue on their current courses; could be a greasy pig with thundershowers forecast;
               Austin Elite (2) v (13) San Diego Legion in Texas, 6pm MST: a winless XV versus road warriors who could be, at minimum, drawn on table points with NOLA for first in the league at the end of the day; morning storms predicted, and though the weather should be fine for the match, grounds may yet be a tad slick; recipe for upset?
Saturday, 2.23th:
               Utah Warriors (4) v (7) Glendale Raptors at Herriman, Utah, 7pm MST: travelers experienced first joy of the season last weekend and should like to see that continue; hosts dropped a match on the trot and should like to see that trend end; both have beaten common opponent Austin; a massive mountain mixer on tap when the pill first drops Saturday evening at Zions Bank Stadium; cool but clear in the venue south of Salt Lake City on the RugbyDay;
Sunday, 2.24:
               Seattle SeaWolves (11) v (8) NY United in Tukwila, 5pm MST; last undefeated XV in the league on the road at the reigning champions; Staller and his ‘Wolves looked sharp in last week’s return for victory, while NY’s 10, Cathal Marsh, has the step, foot and finish to deliver the goods; the squads are numbers three and four at table just now though United have a brace of matches in hand their weekend hosts; Starfire will be blazing Sunday night, one may rest assured; dependent upon Legion’s outcome on Friday, the winner could be drawn in table points with or in front of that second-placed team; rain Friday-Saturday will have gone away by Sunday, but may affect a slick surface and subsequent handling space.
