Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Chris Wyles and Titi Lamositele will be going for Europe's biggest prize this weekend as they take on Clermont in the Champions Cup final.  Chris Wyles wasn't originally set to start but he's now in the starting line-up after Sean Maitland couldn't go because of injury. Titi Lamositele is going to be on the bench. It can't be overstated how important it is for Lamositele and the Eagles that he is going to be on the bench in a cup final. He's improved a lot over the last year and it's paying off with good playing time. Outside of the Champions Cup most Americans overseas have the weekend off. Some players in Europe are still involved in the playoffs and in Super Rugby team's either have the weekend off or the American is getting some rest. That said, both Zach Pangelinan and James Hilterbrand will be involved in the Shute Shield.
