This article focuses on the Green Bay Packers rugby football team in the U.S. One should not be surprised if Nick Barnett plays between new starters in 2006. Robert Thomas has been hampered by injuries. Paris Lenon is solid, but the team wants a better athlete. Rookies Brady Poppinga and Roy Manning are decent prospects, but Poppinga's injury will hinder his progress and Manning must gain experience. There isn't anyone on the roster who can replace Grady Jackson's run-stuffing ability. Rookie Nick Collins has exceptional speed for his size and is an excellent tackler.
