Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It's going to be a quiet weekend for Americans overseas with only a few players involved in play. Injuries mean that AJ MacGinty, Samu Manoa, and Blaine Scully will miss time for their team while other players are simply being rested. Manoa was injured last week and will miss over a month with an injury to his knee. It comes at an inopportune time for him as he was shining for Toulon. Other players, like Chris Wyles and Thretton Palamo are being rested. The two players that will see time are Can Dolan and Take Ngwenya. Also, some players in the Premiership may see time in the 'A' League.
