Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

Frozen pitches cancelled a lot of matches for Americans overseas over the weekend but there were several players that saw action for their clubs. Chris Wyles and Titi Lamositele were both involved for Saracens. Unfortunately they were the only Americans to play in the Premiership. In the RFU Championship Will Hooley was at the center of things for Bedford although the RFU Championships was one of the divisions hit by frozen pitches.
