Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

There is a lot to talk about concerning Americans overseas thanks to the weekend's results. Let's start in England where Chris Wyles made his 200th appearance for the Saracens. To boot he score a try in the match as the Saracens one a big match. Earning 200 appearances is a huge milestone for a player that almost gave up rugby at one point. Titi Lamositele also made an appearance in the match. Over in Ireland, AJ MacGinty hit a crucial conversion for Connacht.

Over in Super Rugby, Andrew Durutalo scored the quickest try in the competition this year but unfortunately the Sunwolves weren't able to get the win. Additionally, U.S.-eligible Toni Pulu made his debut for the Chiefs as they romped over the Western Force. Pulu scored during the match.
