Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

There were ups and there were downs for Americans in Europe over the weekend. The the Americans at Saracens it was a good weekend as they advanced to the Champions Cup semi-finals with a victory over Glasgow. Greg Peterson saw his first top side action with the Warriors in awhile. He came on early as an emergency sub and then played 60 minutes. With Samu Manoa's Toulon losing that means Saracens are the only teams with Americans still in contention. In the Challenge Cup, Blaine Scully nearly played the full match for Cardiff but his team lost. Brive and Taku Ngwenya also lost meaning that there will be no Americans in the Challenge Cup. Other than that it was fairly quiet for Americans overseas. Several saw play in the Pro D2 and Marcel Brache played for the Western Force.
