Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It's actually setting up to be another quiet weekend for Americans overseas with the RFU Championship taking a break. With the addition of Will Hooley to the playing pool the RFU Championship has six Americans in it on six different teams if you count Nick Civetta playing for Doncaster. That is by far one of the more popular destinations for Americans. In terms of those actually playing Chris Wyles will start once again for Saracens. AJ MacGinty is also starting while Joe Taufete'e is on the bench. In the Pro 14, Greg Peterson will get his first start of the season. The Eagles coaching staff has to be happy he is back to full health.
