Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Things are starting to heat up for Americans in the Premiership. AJ MacGinty is still out with an injury but after a week of no players getting starts there will be two this week. Chris Wyles is set to make his first appearance for Saracens this year after his Olympic layoff. Over in West England Thretton Palamo will make his debut for Bristol. Hopefully he can lock down one of the starting center spots for the rest of the year.  Also in the Premiership Paddy Ryan is on the bench for Newcastle. In the Pro12 Blaine Scully came off the bench for Cardiff as did Greg Peterson for Glasgow. Further in Ireland the All-Ireland League got off to a start this weekend with the Americans at Trinity picking up a big win.
