Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

A big congratulations to Jess Wooden who will start for the Barbarians this weekend. She is the first American to play for the side and it comes on the heels of a strong run with the Harlequins. Getting more American women opportunities overseas in a high level environment is only a good thing. Another item of note this weekend on a weekend where many of the top competitions have off is that both Saoisi Mahoni and David Tameilau are starting together for Narbonne. Tameailau will be joining the Utah Warriors soon.
