Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Pool play in the European Champions Cup and the Challenge Cup came to a close over the weekend. Two Americans have survived to the quarterfinals of the Champions Cup. Chris Wyles and his Saracens team are there as is Samu Manoa and Toulon. Wyles started for Saracens before coming off injured. In the Challenge Cup only Blaine Scully's Cardiff has survived. In the British & Irish Cup Will Hooley did his part with his boot as Bedford moved to the quarterfinals.
