Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Things are getting intense in Europe for Americans overseas. The push for the playoffs is here and while some teams are pretty much established in their respective league's top four or six others are trying to break in. Saracens have been England's top team this season but haven't had results they would fully like the past few weeks. Once again Chris Wyles and Hayden Smith will start for the Saracens but Titi Lamositele isn't in the line-up because he's with the Eagles. Up in Newcastle, none of the three Americans are in the line-up but Eric Fry has an excuse being with the Eagles. AJ MacGinty is going to get another start for Connacht. He's up for Player of the Month for the club. Also in the Pro12, Blaine Scully will start for Cardiff against Greg Peterson who starts for Newcastle. Lastly, Andrew Durutalo and the Sunwolves have the weekend off.
