Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

European play is on tap for Americans once again for Americans overseas. Chris Wyles will start once again for Saracens. He's the only capped American playing in the European Champions Cup. Callum Black will also play but he obviously hasn't been capped. In the European Challenge Cup Blaine Scully will start for Cardiff. However, surprisingly there aren't any other Americans set to see time. Fresh off his stellar performance last weekend Joe Taufete'e misses out this weekend. New Worcester signing Andrew Durutalo is not in the Warriors European team. In the British & Irish Cup Dino Waldren starts once again as will Ronnie McLean. Robbie Shaw is on the bench.
