Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The Six Nations, both the Americas and the European version have taken their toll on the amount of Americans playing for their clubs overseas this weekend. The likes of Blaine Scully, Eric Fry, Todd Clever, Greg Peterson, and Taku Ngwenya are all with the Eagles as they get ready to play Argentina on Saturday. However, even if they were with their clubs most of them would have the weekend off. The entire Top 14 is taking a break while almost all of the Pro12 and Premiership are doing the same. One of the big exceptions is in the Premiership where both Saracens and Newcastle will play. Fry and Clever are away from Newcastle but U.S.-eligible prop Paddy Ryan is on the bench for the Falcons. At Saracens, all three Americans will be involved. Chris Wyles and Hayden Smith will both start while Titi Lamositele is on the bench.
