Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Even though some teams have the weekend off as attention in Europe turns to cup play there are still plenty of Americans still involved. In the European Champions Cup Titi Lamositele is on the bench for Saracens as they clash with Glasgow on Sunday. Greg Peterson will see his first action with Glasgow's first team in a long time as he's on the bench. Having him back to full health is only a good thing for Glasgow and the Eagles. The other American in the Champions Cup is Samu Manoa who is on the bench for Toulon. In the Challenge Cup, Blaine Scully will start for Cardiff and Taku Ngwenya will start for Brive. One other note from the weekend. Pierce Dargan will have the opportunity to run out with the Ireland Students against the England students on Sunday.
