Amazing to see you cover rugby in the newsletter!
Similar to Major League Cricket which you covered a couple weeks back, there’s also Major League Rugby (MLR) with 13 teams spread across the US. There’s tons of North Americans playing in this league, and the hope is that the 2031 Rugby World Cup is the catalyst to bring the sport more mainstream.
Let me know if you ever have questions or want to cover MLR - our next season kicks off in March 2024.
