Toronto Arrows Team Up with Sauga 960 AM’s The Raw Mike Richards Show to Deliver Weekly ‘Arrows Up!’ Segment

4 February 2020

TORONTO, ON – The Toronto Arrows are pleased to announce that the Greater Toronto Area’s airwaves will be getting a spike in regular rugby content throughout the 2020 Major League Rugby season.

The club is partnering with Sauga 960 AM’s The Raw Mike Richards Show to bring fans a weekly ‘Arrows Up!’ segment of rugby radio, focusing on the latest Toronto Arrows news and storylines as the team competes in its second MLR season. Airing on Wednesdays at 8:10 a.m. throughout the season, veteran morning drive radio personalities Mike Richards and Dave Bastl will be joined by a rotating slate of Arrows players and staff to chat all-things rugby.

“We’re looking forward to hopping on the air on Sauga 960 AM each week to bring rugby fans closer to the big stories surrounding the Arrows and Canadian rugby,” said Bill Webb, President and General Partner of the Toronto Arrows. “Mike and Dave are big fans of rugby, and are no strangers to conducting engaging and memorable interviews. Our players and staff are going to have a lot of fun with these two radio professionals over the course of the season, which will definitely make the ‘Arrows Up!’ segment must-listen radio for all fans of the Toronto Arrows.”

“We’re big supporters of the Toronto Arrows and the team’s desire to grow the sport of rugby in Canada, and we’re excited to talk rugby each week over the next five months,” said Dave Bastl, co-host and producer of The RAW Mike Richards Show. “The Arrows may be new to Toronto’s sports scene, but we can already see the impact the club is making across the GTA. We’re looking forward to covering the team’s pursuit of an MLR Shield, and having a bunch of raw, authentic conversations with Arrows players and staff.”

The ‘Arrows Up!’ segment will be available for listeners over the airwaves at 960 on the AM dial, online at, and on-demand via the Raw Mike Richards podcast.

The Arrows will begin their second campaign in North America’s top-flight professional rugby league with a road match against the Austin Gilgronis on Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020. Following seven consecutive matches played away from Toronto, the club will play seven of its final nine matches at home between April 4 and May 31 to close out its sophomore MLR regular season.

Season ticket packages can be purchased online at or by calling Arrows ticketing staff at 647-847-7700.
