Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It's back to league play for Americans in Europe. In the Top 14 there was potential for two Americans to go head to head but Taku Ngwenya won't play for Brive as they go up against Samu Manoa and Toulon. Manoa will get the start which is a good thing. In the Pro14 Blaine Scully will start for Cardiff while Greg Peterson is on the bench for Glasgow. That's also a good thing. Peterson is coming off playing for Marr in the Scottish Premiership and will look to get first team action with Glasgow. In the Premiership, Chris Wyles will start as will Joe Taufete'e. Where most of the Americans will see time is in the second divisions in England and France. Nick Civetta is dual-registered with Doncaster and will start for them. Ronnie McLean is also going to start and Dino Waldren is on the bench. In France, Eric Fry starts again while David Tameilau is back to health and on the bench for Narbonne.
