Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Even though a couple of Americans were still with the Eagles as they played Canada over the weekend it was still a very busy weekend for Americans overseas. In particular, it was a good weekend for scoring try. Callum Black had a try for Ulster and Blaine Scully had one in PRO12 play. Over in Canada, Graham Harriman captained James Bay and scored a try for his team as they picked up a big win. Circling back to Black, it was his 100th appearance for Ulster and yet his tally was his first try of his Ulster career. Elsewhere, some players had the weekend off. One team that didn't fall under that category was the Saracens where all three Americans were on the pitch together in the second half. Unfortunately it couldn't prevent a big loss.
