Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It looks like Thretton Palamo's stint with the Dragons could be short. The Eagles back apparentely suffered a suspected broken foot against the Southern Kings last week. He wasn't included in the Dragons team that takes on Cardiff this weekend and with his loan due up soon it's probably unlikely he gets back in a Dragons uniform. If that's the case he will have had one start and one appearance off the bench. Another piece of disappointing news for an American overseas is that Taku Ngwenya has not been included in Brive's Challenge Cup squad. That could be for rest purproses but it's still disappointing.

On the field this weekend with be AJ MacGinty, Joe Taufete'e (who just had a birthday), and Chris Wyles in the Premiership. Not American will be in the Guinness Pro14 while Ngwenya and Dave Ryan start in France. No Samu Manoa this week and no Americans in the Pro D2 either.
