Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

It was a banner weekend for Americans overseas in terms of scoring tries, especially for the props. Joe Taufete'e scored his first try for Worcester as he started in the LV= Cup. Eric Fry had a try for Vannes as he came off the bench for the team. Also scoring for their team was Taku Ngwenya. He once again went the full match for Brive. Overall, the LV= Cup meant a shake up for some players getting time. Titi Lamositele started for Saracens while Cam Dolan did the same for Cardiff. He also captained the team. Dolan started against AJ MacGinty who hit two conversions for Sale. Others that played over the weekend include Thretton Palamo, Samu Manoa, and David Tameilau.
