MLR Picks Week 15: Will San Diego Hold Onto The Top Spot

Will the Legion survive the trip North?

Major League Rugby is heading into the final quarter of the season and there is plenty of congestion at the top, as teams push to lock up their spot in the postseason. Week 15 kicks off with Austin Elite traveling to NOLA Gold. NOLA is sitting in second, but with a big bonus point win and some other results falling in their favor, they could reclaim first position. In a big battle, the Glendale Raptors welcome the Utah Warriors into town. After a sluggish start to the season, Glendale seem to be finding the right gear at the right time and a win here would really boost their finals hopes. The biggest game of the weekend will see the top of the ladder San Diego Legion travel up north to the Toronto Arrows. Heading over the border has been a tough task for teams recently and with NOLA nipping at their heels, San Diego will be feeling the pressure to come away with the win. The round concludes with Houston SaberCats and their new interim head coach, Paul Emerick taking on Rugby United New York- who are looking to rebound from a last second loss last weekend. Seattle will have the bye.
