Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The season is heating up in the Southern Hemisphere with several Americans seeing good time. Chris Baumann continues to start for Wellington and see good time. After a strong PRO Rugby season Baumann has really tested himself this year and should be a big asset to the Eagles going forward. Also seeing significant time in the Mitre 10 Cup was Tony Lamborn. Pasqualle Dunn also also action. Up in the Northern Hemisphere it's a sluggish start to the year with no American set to play in the Premeriship this weekend. It's not any better in the Pro12 either. It's down lower where Americans are set to play. Richmond will face another big challenge as will the teams kicking off the Federale 1 season. In France, Christian Ostberg is continuing to gain the trust of the coaching staff and earn more time.
