Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The Six Nations continues to wreak havoc on European club schedules but despite that it's another full weekend for Americans overseas. Chris Wyles will get another start at Saracens while Hayden Smith and Titi Lamositele will come off the bench. In the Pro12, some teams have the weekend off but others, like Glasgow and Cardiff, are in action. Both Blaine Scully and Cam Dolan will start for Cardiff while Greg Peterson will start for Glasgow.

The other big item to impact Americans overseas is the roster announcement from PRO Rugby. Players like Robbie Shaw, Pierce Dargan, Taku Ngwenya, Roland Suniula, and Nick Civetta have all either left or will be leaving their clubs for the competition. It's unclear if they have already left or if they will be leaving soon. Some of the competitions at the lower levels only have a few matches remaining while others, like the PRO D2 still have a good chunk of the season left.
