This article focuses on the Carolina Panthers rugby football team in the U.S. After a slow start, rookie Thomas Davis is emerging as a significant factor on defense. Though he doesn't start, he is getting ample playing time as a linebacker in the defense. The team tries to take advantage of Davis' special combination of speed and size. After giving up on disappointing Rod Gardner, the team will give more playing time to second-year player Draw Carter as a third or fourth receiver. He might be the fastest player on the team and has good size.
