This article focuses on the New Orleans Saints rugby football team in the U.S. Rugby football player Johnathan Sullivan's performance has been steady in 2005. He hasn't worn down, and he has shown the focus and dedication that were in question his first two years. Wayne Gandy has been flagged for a handful of penalties, but he has been the team's steadiest, healthiest offensive lineman. He is a better run than pass blocker. The team's most effective backers have been veterans Sedrick Hodge and Ronald McKinnon.
