Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It's another European weekend for Americans overseas. There are a smattering of players playing in the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup as well as the British & Irish Cup. In the Champions Cup Chris Wyles will start while both Samu Manoa and Greg Peterson are on the bench for their respective teams. In the Challenge Cup Blaine Scully gets the starting nod. More action is happening in the B&I Cup with Ronnie McLean, Dino Waldren, and Will Hooley all starting.

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.
