Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Although it's not the busiest weekend in Europe with France mostly taking time off but it's going to be busy for Americans. In the Premiership all three Americans at Saracens are going to be involved for the club as they play Wasps on Sunday. In the PRO12, AJ MacGinty started for Connacht earlier in the week while both Greg Peterson and Callum Black are set to start as Glasgow plays Ulster.

Two other notes to remind you of this week. Samu Manoa is going to miss at least three months with a knee injury. He's having surgery and could be back for the Top 14 playoffs but he may also miss them. Additionally, Tom Bliss has left Ealing, where he was on loan from Wasps. He's reportedly set to be offered a contract from PRO Rugby.
