Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

Despite many members of the Eagles being back from international duty it is still a relatively quiet weekend for Americans overseas. Most of the action already came on Friday as three Americans were on the pitch at the same time. AJ MacGinty started and played the whole match for Sale as they beat Worcester. He added two penalties and a conversion. Across the pitch both Joe Taufete'e and Andrew Durutalo were late second half substitutes. If it's not tied for the record for most Americans on the pitch it has to be close. Additionally, Chris Wyles will play for Saracens while Titi Lamositele continues to recover by playing for the Saracens Storm. Down in the RFU Championship players like Nick Civetta and Dino Waldren miss out on selection. In France, Samu Manoa will start for Toulon.
