Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It's another European weekend for many Americans playing overseas. In the Champions Cup, Greg Peterson will start for Glasgow while Callum Black does the same for Ulster. Chris Wyles is on the bench for Saracens. In the Challenge Cup there isn't as much action with only Blaine Scully on the bench for Cardiff. In the British & Irish Cup several Americans will get a chance to play while in the Pro D2 everyone is shut out.

We just wanted to take a minute to let you know that TIAR is currently holding a pledge drive. If you liked what you read consider a donation. Eagles Abroad is one of our favorite segments but it takes resources. Your support makes it possible. If so inclined, there is a donation button on the right hand side of the page.
