Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Chris Wyles has had a storied career yet he happened to pick up another first over the weekend as he earned his first yellow card in European play. There is video after the jump of the incident. It's also interesting fellow North American Jeff Hassler was involved in the play. Aside from that it was a fairly quiet weekend. Greg Peterson started for Glasgow for the first time this season. Other than that there was some action in the British & Irish Cup.
