Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The November internationals mean that some Americans overseas are going to get a break from regular play. For instance, players in Ireland, Scotland, and France are off entirely. That's for the Top 14 in France and not the Pro D2 although no Americans will play in that competition either. Eric Fry was the best bet but as we noted yesterday he's going to be out for a little bit. The action for most Americans is in the Anglo-Welsh Cup or the RFU Championship. AJ MacGinty will get another start in the Anglo-Welsh Cup for Sale. However, he won't go up against any of his American compatriots at Saracens. Chris Wyles is rested and Titi Lamositele is still out injured. Joe Taufete'e returns from his quick break to America and is on the bench for Worcester. Andrew Durutalo will start once again. Also starting is Chris Baumann. It's the first time he's been given that role at Leicester.
