Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview


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

Four teams with Americans and U.S.-eligible players are still alive for titles in Europe. However, that will be narrowed down in a couple of weeks, especially as one of Northampton or Saracens will head home. Samu Manoa and Chris Wyles will start for their respective teams this weekend while none of the other four Americans that could potentially appear in the match are on the game day roster. However, Cam Dolan will be active this weekend as he is set to play with Samurai at the Amsterdam 7s. The other semi-final in England has Leicester taking on Bath. Neither Blaine Scully nor Greg Peterson will be in the line-up as they are seemingly being punished for moves away from the club in the offseason. Lastly, Andrew Suniula continues to get good time in Romania.
