ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the New Orleans Saints rugby football team in the U.S. Aaron Stecker again has proved his value as a change-of-pace runner and receiver. Stecker can move laterally behind the line of scrimmage to find holes and can turn the corner on screen passes. Veteran Darren Howard seems certain to leave as a free agent in the offseason after being deactivated for the final four games. Rookie Jimmy Verton will replace Howard and back up Will Smith. Rookie Jammal Brown has held up very well during a trying season.
