Full Disclosure: Yours truly will be handling the play by play alongside USA Rugby legend, Mike Petri – a plumber’s son from Brooklyn. Dare I say that you’ll enjoy this Border Battle? New York won the championship last year and Toronto always plays tough down here. It’s 80 minutes of fierce hitting, speed, agility and grit.
