Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The weekend has just started but it's already been big for Taku Ngwenya. Biarritz has played a lot of Friday matches this year and it seems to be paying off for Ngwenya. Today he chipped in with another couple of tries, continuing his hot streak. Also today saw Cardiff and Connacht go at each other but only Cam Dolan is involved. As we noted yesterday, AJ MacGinty is out for a little while with a knee injury. Americans will go head to head in France when Samu Manoa and Toulon play Dave Ryan and Agen. Back in England, Chris Wyles resumes his place for Saracens and is the only American involved out of a potential six in the Saracens-Newcastle match. Stay tuned for players playing in the "A" league this week as well.
