This article focuses on the San Francisco 49ers rugby football team in the U.S. For the second straight year, Ahmed Plummer's season has been cut short by injury, and it could affect his future with the team. Rookie Derrick Johnson is a bit undersized but his aggressiveness and physical style in coverage help him compensate against taller receivers. Justin Smiley has the potential to become a dominant inside lineman. He's not the biggest player, but he's athletic for his size. A stout pass protector, he also has become very good at trapping and pulling.
