Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

What a weekend for Joe Taufete'e! Not only did he get his first start of the season for the Worcester Warriors as they launched their European Challenge Cup campaign but he also picked up a hat-trick and was the talk of the town. It was a very bright moment for Taufete'e who seeks more time at the Warriors. He's already a consistent presence off the bench but this might help him push for some starts. Also starting in the Challenge Cup was Blaine Scully who played the full 80 minutes for Cardiff. Chris Wyles started for the Saracens as they rolled through Northampton. Robbie Shaw and Dino Waldren started in the British & Irish Cup.
