Eagles Abroad: Weekend Review

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

The big news dominating Americans overseas is the major injury to AJ MacGinty and the suspension to Nick Civetta. As we noted earlier it is looking like MacGinty could be out for an entire year after suffering a knee injury. That's a big blow to not only the Eagles but to Sale. He has been playing fantastically recently. Additionally, Nick Civetta was given a three week suspension for his red card given in late December. He'll still be available for the Eagles at the ARC. In better news, both Chris Wyles and Joe Taufete'e had tried for their clubs. Chris Wyles scored one as Saracens won but Taufte'e scored in a loss for Worcester. In the Pro 14, Greg Peterson started his first match of the year for Glasgow in their big win over Zebre.  Elsewhere, Americans missed out in France with the exception of Dave Ryan. Other leagues had the weekend off.
