Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Americas are back at it this weekend as the Six Nations takes a break. Joe Taufete'e is back from his break for the birth of his son and is on the bench for Worcester. He won't be the only American involved in the Premiership this weekend either. Thretton Palamo will start for Bristol but rather than playing at his usual center position he's moved to the wing. AJ MacGinty will be on the bench for Sale to round out the Premiership. In the Pro12, Blaine Scully will start for Cardiff once again. Callum Black will start for Ulster. Additionally, it's become clear that Sam Underhill will play for England but in keeping with our policy we'll still track him until he loses his U.S.-eligibility. Elsewhere, players at the lower divisions will see action once again, including Eric Fry who will start for Vannes.
