Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The good news for several Americans overseas is that they are slowly making their way back from injury. Blaine Scully wasn't picked for Cardiff this week but he's back in the selection talks which is only a good thing. Dave Ryan and Tony Lamborn both seem to have put their injuries behind them with starts once again. Also starting once again is AJ MacGinty. He has been a fixture for Sale early in the season. However, not lining up against him is Chris Wyles who rests this week for Saracens. Titi Lamositele is still making it back from injury. The only other player that will play in the Premiership this weekend is Joe Taufete'e who is on the bench for Worcester. Over in the Guinness Pro14 Thretton Palamo will make his debut for the Dragons and it's a start. In the lower divisions Andrew Durutalo starts for Ealing while Dino Waldren is on the bench for London Scottish. In France, Samu Manoa, Taku Ngwenya, and Eric Fry all start.
