Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It's another holiday weekend for Americans overseas but unfortunately it's turning out to be a bear one. There were potentially four Americans that could have played when Saracens and Worcester get together on Saturday but none of the four will play. Andrew Durutalo will at least be involved for the Worcester Cavaliers. Among other players in the Premiership Chris Baumann is on the bench for Leicester. He's been on the bench a few times without playing. Maybe this is the week he finally gets off the bench. Conversely, things are going very well for AJ MacGinty who starts once again for Sale. In the Pro 14, Greg Peterson is on the bench for Connacht. In France, Samu Manoa will start for Toulon. Lastly, Nick Civetta played for Doncaster today while Dino Waldren did the same for London Scottish.
