2021 Major League Rugby


Recommended Posts

The 2021 MLR season kicked off yesterday. The LA Giltinis kicked off their first season with a convincing win over the New England Free Jacks 42-27. I watched a bit of the game and they looked pretty strong. Canadian internation DTH van der Merwe scored the first ever try for them. The defending champion Seattle Seawolves fell 30-24 to Houston and the Toronto Arrows, who were the first place team last year before they shut things down, fell 21-14 to Rugby ATL. OVerall the games looks pretty fast passed and lots of trys are being scored. The Toronto game was pretty entertaining in the first half.


Also of note, all of the MLR games are being streamed on their new streaming service The Rugby Network and it's also free to sign up. For Toronto Arrows fans though, the games are available on TSN, TSN On Demand and the TSN App.


Did anyone else catch any of the games? Thoughts going into this season?

The Dallas Jackals were supposed to play this season.  They had a full coaching staff and a full roster of players but in January they announced that they would play in 2022 instead, which led to a dispersal draft among the roster.  It was a bit of a mess.
