Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Overall it was a fairly quiet weekend for Americans overseas but for those that did play they saw good time. One of the players that benefitted from play over the holiday weekend was Titi Lamositele who played nearly a half an hour in Saracens win over rivals Leicester. Still at just over twenty years old he is getting solid playing time with arguably the best club in Europe. Other players to play in the Premiership include AJ MacGinty and Thretton Palamo. MacGinty came off the bench for Sales while Palamo started and played the entire match as their two clubs played each other. Bristol beat Sale to add to the Sharks bad string of results. Down in France only Samu Manoa played as he went the full match for Toulon in a winning effort.
