Eagles Abroad is brought to you by Grubber, makers of fine sporting apparel.
The holiday weekend has come and gone and it was a busy won for many Americans. Most of the action took place last Friday. AJ MacGinty was another permanent presence for Sale. He didn't kick any points as Sale put in another lackluster performance but he did play well. Also on Friday Taku Ngwenya played another great shift for Brive and Samu Manoa came off the bench for Toulon. The club hasn't had a lot of success this year in comparison to past years but that's not due to Manoa. Elsewhere on the weekend Chris Wyles started and played 80 minutes for Saracens. Titi Lamosistele also played on Christmas Eve coming off the bench in the second half. Other players to see time include Callum Black and Ronnie Mclean. Most of the other competitions in Europe had the weekend off.
