Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The LV= Cup kicks back in for Americans overseas this weekend and that means for some players that don't get a lot of playing time they are going to get the chance. That includes Titi Lamositele who is on the bench for Saracens. Chris Baumann is on the bench for Leicester and could line up against Blaine Scully who is starting for Cardiff. Scully is also the captain for this weekend. In the RFU Championship there are several Americans involved for their teams as is Samu Manoa down in France. 

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.
