The Heineken Cup marches on this weekend, and several Americans are in action.
Takudzwa Ngwenya of Biarritz and Chris Wyles of Saracens line up directly across from each other Sunday to decide first place in Pool 5. Read more about the matchup here, and tune into Fox Soccer Plus Sunday at 7pm ET to catch the game.
Samu Manoa gets a start at lock Saturday against the Scarlets in Llanelli, Wales. The Saints are 1-3 and would need a minor miracle to advance to the quarterfinals. This game premieres on Fox Soccer Plus at 2:30 pm ET Saturday.
Chris Biller’s Bath travels to Seta Tuilevuka’s Montpellier Saturday, but neither Eagle is in the match-day 22. Tuilevuka has had trouble getting on the field for Montpellier this season, and Biller’s playing days with Bath are likely done. The club has an issue with its foreign player count, and its injury situation at hooker has improved.
Both clubs combine for one Heineken Cup win this season and will be viewing the quarterfinals from afar.
The Amlin Challenge cup also reconvenes this weekend, and Scott Lavalla is the only American getting a start. His Stade Francais, undefeated in the tournament, travels to Bucuresti.
