Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Overall, it was a quiet weekend for Americans overseas. That's only natural given that many of the overseas based Eagles were with the national team in Romania or their leagues had the weekend off to focus on the November internationals. Paddy Ryan and Sam Underhill were the only U.S.-eligible players to play in the LV= Cup over the weekend. Both are good reminders of our policy to continue tracking players until they lose their U.S.-eligibility. Underhill is very unlikely to play for the Eagles but you never know. Down in France it was more busy with both Taku Ngwenya and Gagi Bazadze seeing time. Ngwenya got the start for Brive. Lastly, Trinity won in Ireland again with another big contribution from Pierce Dargan.
