Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It's yet another busy weekend for Americans overseas. In the Premiership, Thretton Palamo continues to make his mark for Bristol. He is in the starting line-up once again. It's no coincidence that Bristol's recent uptick in play corresponds with more time for Palamo. Also starting is Chris Wyles who returns from a week off. Titi Lamositele is once again on the bench for Saracens. AJ MacGinty is on the bench for Sale. In the Pro12, Blaine Scully has passed concussion protocol and will start for Cardiff as they play Glasgow. Of the four potential Americans in the match Scully will be the only one involved. Greg Peterson is still injured for Glasgow while Langilangi Haupeakui and Cam Dolan are likely to see time in the Scottish and Welsh regional competitions. Elsewhere, many of the lower leagues have the weekend off except in France where several Americans are involved in the ProD2.
