Rugby PickEm fans, let’s just start by saying we couldn’t be more bummed out about the cancelled 2020 season, but it’s times like these that put things in perspective. It’s life and death situations (the entire human species battling a global pandemic) like these that force us to cherish the things close to us like family, and community. We were hoping to bring some laughs in a time of uncertainty (and no rugby), and since we recorded this, the situation has worsened. We hope all the listeners stay safe and we’ll do our best to keep putting up content as everyone locks down in their version of quarantine. Enjoy, and do your best to stop the spread.

We will be watching these during quarantine and reporting back and we encourage the Rugby PickEm community to watch these movies to so we can all revel in their beauty or complete shit, only time will tell.
