It's a concentrated weekend for USA players playing pro overseas.
In the Aviva Premiership, fans just missed seeing two pairs of Eagles square off. Chris Wyles starts at inside center for Saracens as they play Wasps, however new Wasps signing Andrew Suniula won't be lining up against him.
This is the fourth different position for Wyles this season, and his first action in a #12 jersey as he helps Sarries stay in 1st place.
Should Saracens lose to Wasps (unlikely), they could be overtaken by either Leicester or Northampton. Those two teams play each other, with Eagles on either side. Blaine Scully gets his third straight start, lining up at right wing for the Tigers, while Samu Manoa starts at lock for the Saints.
In the French Top 14, Taku Ngwenya started at wing for Biarritz as the struggling southern club lost 16-12 to Perpignan. Meanwhile, resurgent Paris (Statde Francais) hopes to hold onto 1st place as they face Toulouse. Scott LaValla starts at flanker for Stade.
In Italy, Nick Civetta once again starts at lock for Lazio 1927 in their second Eccellenza league game of the season.
And way over in Japan, Todd Clever starts at No. 8 for NTT Communications as they take on the NTT.com Red Hurricanes.
