Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

The Super Rugby season is over for one of two Americans in the competition. Marcel Brache and the Western Force have finished up but Toni Pulu and the Chiefs have advanced to the semi-finals. Unfortunately for Pulu he was not in the line-up for the Chiefs. Other Americans that saw action were in the lower leagues in the Southern Hemisphere. The European teams are getting into their pre-seasons and should have exhibitions soon.
