Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

The Sunwolves have played three matches so far in Super Rugby and Andrew Durutalo has played every single minute so far for the team. They haven't picked up a win yet but Durutalo is proving himself to be a very capable and useful player in Super Rugby. Maybe his strong play will open up the doors for other Americans. Also in Super Rugby, U.S.-eligible Marcel Brache played for the Western Force.

Over in Europe, Chris Wyles once again went the distance for Saracens. Hayden Smith and Titi Lamositele came off the bench. Both after earning their way into the Saracens team even as the team has slipped from first in the standings. In the Pro12 Blaine Scully and Cam Dolan started for Cardiff while Greg Peterson started for Glasgow. Elsewhere, many of the leagues had the weekend off.
