Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Cup play gave several Americans the opportunity to play over the weekend. Titi Lamositele earned his first significant first-team time in awhile as he came off the bench and played a half and hour for Saracens. He helped deliver win at the same time. Additionally, Andrew Durutalo made an appearance off the bench for Worcester. Blaine Scully started and played 80 minutes for Cardiff in addition to captaining the team. Down in the RFU Championship, Will Hooley was good with the boot for Bedford and Dino Waldren came off the bench for London Scottish.
