Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

You'd think it was the summertime with the amount of Americans involved overseas this weekend. That's what the World Cup will do. With the tournament taking away well over a ten Eagles away from their clubs that mostly leaves players playing at lower divisions and U.S.-eligible players. Unfortunately for those players most of those leagues have taken a break during the World Cup and aren't involved this weekend. One player that will be involved for his team is Todd Clever who will make his debut for Newcastle in a pre-season match against Leicester. Clever is getting the opportunity to start and could be in line for big minutes this year. Down in the Southern Hemisphere, Tom Coolican has the weekend off while Toni Pulu will start for Counties Manukau
