Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

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

While Americans playing in the UK and Ireland (and there are an every growing number) are still in pre-season Americans in France and in the Southern Hemisphere are well underway. In the Mitre 10 Cup three of the four Americans have either played for their teams or are set to play for their sides. Pas Dunn has already started and Tony Lamborn will do the same. In France, Dave Ryan, the only U.S.-eligible player left in the competition, is set to start for Ages in their season opener. In the Pro D2 both Christian Ostberg and Eric Fry will come off the bench.
