Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Things are pretty quiet this weekend overseas once again. Most of the leagues around the world have shut down for the World Cup, including lower division teams in Europe. Leagues that are still active include the RFU Championship, where Tom Bliss will be on the bench for Ealing again, National League One, and Trinity in the All-Ireland League. Hartpury, which is where the Eagles are training, will be playing Richmond, the home of Robbie Shaw. Over in Italy, Nick Civetta has changed clubs over the offseason. He's moved from Viadana in the Eccellenza to Medicei in the Serie A, one step below the Eccellenza. Look for things to pick up against next week with a lot more players returning to their teams and getting involved.
