Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

For several Americans overseas they are settling in to regular starting spots at this point in the season.  Chris Wyles has long returned from his Olympic layoff and has been a regular in the starting line-up for Saracens. Unfortunately Titi Lamositele hasn't seen any first team action. However, he is playing in the 'A' League. Also settling into a starting role is AJ MacGinty who gets the nod for Sale once again. Blaine Scully is also in the same boat starting on the wing for Cardiff. Cam Dolan is still missing out. Greg Peterson will also miss out as he nurses and injury from last weekend.

Down in France, teams in the D2 have the weekend off but Eric Fry and St. Nazaire are back at it this weekend. The shift in the Federale 1 pools seems to be working with the top teams getting in a high level of play. Elsewhere in Europe and the Southern Hemisphere players will get starts at lower levels.
