Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It's a weird weekend for Americans overseas. Some are still with the Eagles at the Americas Rugby Championship, others are injured, and others are missing out on selection. Of the seven Americans in the Premiership only Joe Taufete'e will be in a line-up this weekend as he's on the bench for Worcester. Chris Wyles is still injured while the others miss out. Greg Peterson has missed a lot of time due to injury over the past few months but he's making his competitive return this weekend for the Glasgow Hawks. If all goes well he could find himself back in the Warriors line-up soon. Elsewhere in the Pro12 most players will miss out. Down in France it could have been an Eagle vs. Eagles showdown between Samu Manoa's Toulon and Taku Ngwenya's Brive but only Manoa will be involved.
