Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The season in Europe is quickly coming to its end with playoff positions on the line. Saracens will once again have the most American involvement. Chris Wyles will start while both Titi Lamositele and Hayden Smith are on the bench as they play the Harlequins in front of what should be a record crowd at Wembley. The fixture has become a tradition in England and it's a great opportunity for Americans to showcase their skills. Elsewhere, U.S.-eligible Callum Black is on the only American involved in the Pro12. Over in Super Rugby, Andrew Durutalo will resume his starting position for the Sunwolves as they continue their tour of South Africa. James Hilterbrand is on the bench again for the Waratahs.
