Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Thanks to the Six Nations in Europe keeping most of the league dormant and the Eagles taking some of the top players away, there wasn't a lot of action in Europe over the weekend for Americans overseas. The busiest club for Americans was Saracens with all three getting into the action. Chris Wylester played the full eighty minutes while Hayden Smith started and played 43 minutes. Titi Lamositele came off the bench for the final seven minutes. Also in the Premiership, U.S.-eligible Paddy Ryan also came off the bench and played seven minutes. The only other major action of the weekend was down in France where Samu Manoa started for Toulon in a friendly loss against the Sharks. Some players did get to play in some lower divisions.
