Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Things are starting to get more busy for Americans overseas as the November internationals enter the final stretches. The Premiership is back in action this weekend and that means that Chris Wyles gets the starting nod for Saracens. Titi Lamositele has taken a break from the Eagles and is now back with the club. He'll come off the bench for Saracens. They will be going up against AJ MacGinty who has recovered from his injuries and will start for Saracens. None of the players in the Pro12 will be in action as the league has the weekend off.

Down in France several Americans, including Eric Fry and David Tameilau will be involved for their clubs in the Pro D2. Taku Ngwenya is likely to feature for Brive as well. Outside of the top leagues the other Americans involved this weekend will be on the lower levels of play.
