Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

It was a fairly skimpy weekend for Americans overseas with the Six Nations causing the Premiership and the Pro12 to mostly take the weekend off. That said, there was an important semi-final for the Americans at Saracens as they took on Leicester in the LV= Cup. Unfortunately it didn't work out well for them as they lost but Titi Lamositele did put in a half and hour or work. Outside that the only other match in the the UK top leagues was U.S.-eligible Callum Black turning out for Ulster in their big win over Zebre. Down in France, Samu Manoa came off the bench for Toulon as they stomped all over Bayonne. Eric Fry saw time for Vannes in the Pro D2. Things should pick up in the next few weeks as some players return from injury and league play kicks back up.
