Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The Six Nations has put a stop to some of the club matches in Europe, especially in France, but in the UK things are going strong with the LV= Cup. Some Americans like AJ MacGinty, Blaine Scully, and Nick Civetta are with the Eagles so they won't feature for their clubs but others like Titi Lamositele and Cam Dolan are going to get a chance. Lamositele will be on the bench for Saracens as they play rivals Leicester. Dolan will start once again for Cardiff as they face Worcester. Joe Taufete'e will not be in the line-up for the Warriors and won't be with the Eagles either as he is back in California getting ready for the birth of his child. This absence has been expected (see what we did there?) for awhile. Other players seeing time over the weekend will come at the lower levels of play in the UK.
