Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Samu Manoa took another big step in his recovery from injury over the weekend going 61 minutes for Toulon as they stomped on Bordeaux. Toulon were going to be in the playoffs regardless of the result on Sunday but the emphatic win assured them a bye in the first round. Both Dave Ryan and Gagi Bazadze played for their clubs even though neither are going to the playoffs. Ryan came off the bench and Bazadze started. Bazadze and La Rochelle were relegated. Christian Ostberg and Aurillac nearly replaced them but they lost the D2 final. Elsewhere, the Super Rugby teams had the weekend off. In fact, they have the whole month off. Some players were set to be involved in the Shute Shield but some matches were rained out.
