Major League Rugby Preview: 4.26-4.28

Major League Rugby North America 
Weekend Preview: 4.26-4.28

Clubs have either five or six fixtures remaining. Therefore 25 or 30 the potential points to be had. 60+, possibly high 50s, table points should earn extra time. NOLA Gold could lose the ordering seat at table outright for the moment should either San Diego or Seattle earn the bonus-point win, but Gold will have a match in hand them then.

Friday, April 26th:
               Glendale Raptors (33) v (37) New York United in the Kettle at Infinity, Glendale CO, 7:30pm MST: crucial for both; travelers recently supplanted their hosts in the last playoff spot and home team must return that favor to maintain their additional time hopes; homeys with the slow start first round of this double in the Big Manzana, while NY put 24 onboard... can’t happen this day in order for the home happy; 70 and overcast, mild breeze = perfect;
              
Saturday, April 27th:
                Utah Warriors (11) v (4) Austin Elite at Zions Bank, Herriman UT, 6pm MST: home team victory came at the expense of their guests today; Utah suffered the heartbreaker on the East coast last time out, while Austin were routed in Southern California; high 60s, no rain, bit of breeze = darn nice;

Sunday, April 28th:
               Toronto Arrows (29) v (41) Seattle SeaWolves at Alumni Field in York Stadium, CAN, 11am MST: if the home team harbor any hope for an extended season, pretty much every match must result in a bonus-point win and to do it today, they’ll have to deny league-leading total points leader, Brock Staller, the pill here and now; low 40s, outside shot at rain and breezy;

               Houston SabreCats (11) v (41) San Diego Legion at Dyer Stadium, Houston TX, 5pm MST: home XV could surprise, but visitors have only lost once in their last 10 games; high 70s with cloud, no rain, a bit o’ wind;

NOLA Gold on the bye
