Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Andrew Durutalo is off to a dream start in England. A week after scoring two tries in his debut last week he followed that up with a try in week two. That's three in two weeks and if he keeps that pace he's going to get a lot of notice. Even better is that his team has two wins and no losses. Even though Ealing stayed up last year they haven't exactly been known to light things up. In the Premiership, Chris Wyles started for Saracens for the first time. AJ MacGinty also started for his team, Sale, and kicked four penalties. He's already got a decent kicking total on the season. Also, Joe Taufete'e came off the bench for Worcester once again. Down in France both Samu Manoa and Taku Ngwenya started for their sides.
