Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Chris Wyles, Titi Lamositele, and the Saracens can move one step closer to European glory this weekend if they can beat Munster in the Champions Cup semi-finals. Wyles has finally returned from injury and will be on the bench. Lamositele is also on the bench. It continues to be worth noting that Lamositele, still at a young age, is continually relied upon for the Saracens in big matches. Saracens are the only team with Americans in the Champions or Challenge Cups semi-finals. Also in Europe, several Americans will be involved in the Pro D2 once again. Additionally, the season has come to a close for Richmond in the RFU Championship. They finished at the bottom of the table but since London Welsh collapsed and were kicked out of the league Richmond will not be relegated. The season has also finished in Ireland. Finally, Marcel Brache will go against Toni Pulu in Super Rugby.
