Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The center of the universe for Americans overseas isn't actually going to be overseas this weekend, it's going to be in Harrison, New Jersey. London Irish are being pushed as the main draw in this weekend's match at Red Bull Arena but for many U.S. fans they will be there to cheer on the American contingent at Saracens. The contingent is also in luck as Chris Wyles and Hayden Smith will both be in the starting line-up. Titi Lamositele is on the bench. Back over in Europe things are a little slower. None of the Americans will be involved with Newcastle, the PRO12 has the weekend off, and many lower leagues are also off. The Pro D2 is an exception. Taku Ngwenya already played this week scoring a try for Biarritz while Christian Ostberg is on the bench for Aurillac. Over in Japan (Singapore this week actually) Andrew Durutalo will once again start for the Sunwolves.
