Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

With the Autumn international nearly finished for all international teams it means that club play is back in full swing. Once again Saracens are leading the way in terms of American representation. Both Chris Wyles and Titi Lamositele will start for the team as they play Bath tomorrow. AJ MacGinty will also get the starting nod for Sale in a match that can be seen on NBCSN. Nick Civetta is on the bench for Newcastle to round out Americans in the Premiership. In the Pro12 Langilangi Haupeakui continues to be a big part of the Glasgow bench. Greg Peterson is still out injured. Blaine Scully will start for Cardiff.

Down in France Samu Manoa will be involved with Toulon. That match on Sunday will be on ESPN3/WatchESPN. It's possible that Taku Ngwenya is also involved for Brive. In the Pro D2 Christian Ostberg is out injured but Eric Fry and the like will see time.
