Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

More Americans are set to make their debuts for their clubs this weekend. Thretton Palamo is set to get his first run out for London Welsh as the Exiles take on Ealing. Palamo is on loan to London Welsh from Saracens in the hopes of getting more playing time. Speaking of Saracens, Chris Wyles will start for the club for the first time this season. However, Titi Lamositele, who had been seeing time with the club, is not in the line-up. Another player to make their debut is AJ MacGinty, who is on the bench for Connacht against Benetton Treviso. Depending on how things go he could see good time with the club. Down in France, Samu Manoa will start again for Toulon, as well Dave Ryan with Agen. Now that he is no longer in Italy or Ireland it may be the right opportunity for Ryan to play for the Eagles. Also, Taku Ngwenya will start for Biarritz in their rivalry against Bayonne.

  1. Thanks for keeping us posted.
    I'm intrigued by Dave Ryan because of the Irish-US connection.
    And I'll start following the lads at Trinity.
