Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

The weather is causing havoc across Europe with a number of fixture cancellations. All three teams with Americans on them in the Pro14 have had their fixtures cancelled. There are also several RFU Championship fixtures that have been postponed. That is good news for Dino Waldren as he is with the Eagles this week and can be there for the make-up match. Additionally, down in France Siaosi Mahoni is hurt and will miss some time.

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.
