Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The European domestic seasons are quickly coming to a close with some teams on Americans looking either to win a title or avoid relegation. The American trio at Saracens are in the former. Chris Wyles and Titi Lamositele will get starts for the club with Hayden Smith on the bench. None of the Americans will be involved for relegation threatened Newcastle. Over in Ireland AJ MacGinty has returned from injury and came off the bench in Connacht's last second loss to Benetton Treviso today. Greg Peterson has made his return back for Glasgow, scoring a try in their big win over Zebre. Also in Ireland, the Americans at Trinity are pushing hard for promotion to the Division 1A with a match against Ballynahinch.
