Five teams in contention for four places in the playoffs. It's simple win and you're in.

Heading into the final week of the Major League Rugby regular season, five teams are in contention for four playoff spots. San Diego Legion has already tied up their spot in the semifinals, but the remaining four teams in contention are all tied on 53 points the stakes could not be higher and these matchups could be not more exciting. The week kicks off on Wednesday, when the Houston SaberCats and Glendale Raptors will make up for their cancelled game earlier in the season. The SaberCats will then back Wednesday night up with a match against the Utah Warriors on Saturday. The playoff implications kick off on Sunday when Rugby United New York heads north and into the Toronto Arrow’s backyard. RUNY currently sits at second on the table, with Toronto only one spot behind them. Both teams will need a win to ensure their spot in the final four. The loser will have to watch as The Seattle Seawolves vs. Austin Elite and San Diego Legion vs. NOLA Gold games play out and hope the results fall in their favor. It’s going to be a wild weekend with no shortage of theatrics, expect the unexpected when these teams take to the field on Sunday.
