I love stories like this. Guy is a beast in rugby. Two time MVP. And now he wants to make it in the NFL. Well guess what? He can. And he’s pretty good.
He made the 53 man roster on the 49ers and it looks like he might be a legit contributor to their offense.
Here is his making guys look silly with his little hesitation jukes. Literally the slightest moves and guys are falling down around him.
That’s good you might say, he can avoid guys. But what about when he runs into one? He can do just fine at that too.
And its not a few plays here and there. These are his preseason stats. Not too shabby.
125 yards / 25 carries – 7 yards per carry
35 yards/ 3 catches – 11.6 yards per catch
163 yards / 10 punts – 16.3 yards per return.
