Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Americans are back at it with another full weekend in Europe. AJ MacGinty gets his starting spot back for Sale as they take on Gloucester. Also starting in the Premiership is Chris Wyles. Joe Taufete'e keeps his spot on the bench for Worcester as he continues to make impact. Blaine Scully is back to full health and will start and captain Cardiff over the weekend. Having him back on the pitch is a good thing for Cardiff, the Eagles, and rugby in general. Thretton Palamo moves down to the bench after starting last week. Additionally, Samu Manoa will start for Toulon while the Americans in the ProD2 get the weekend off. Once again you can also expect a number of Americans to start at the lower levels.
