Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

Eagles Abroad is brought to you by Grubber, makers of fine sporting apparel. 

Americans overseas are back in the swing of things with a busy weekend. It was a trio of debuts for players in the Premiership and Guinness Pro12. Titi Lamositele has been with Saracens for over a year and has played in the LV= Cup but last week he made his debut in the Premiership coming off the bench. That's a great look for a player that is hoping to make big moves this year. Todd Clever started for Newcastle, his first start in a European competition. Eric Fry also saw action for the Falcons over the weekend. In the Pro12, AJ MacGinty's signing with Connacht was the big news this week but in Scotland Greg Peterson made his debut for the Glasgow Warriors. Elsewhere, a trio of players all started for Trinity.
