Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

It is once again a mixed weekend for Americans overseas. Some teams with Americans have the week off in order to focus on the Six Nations. That includes the All Ireland League and the RFU Championship. But of those that are playing maybe the most notable is Saoisi Mahoni getting the start for Narbonne with David Tameilau coming off the bench. Other than that Eric Fry is once again involved for Vannes.

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.
