Default Dhani Jones to try his hand at...

A crash course in learning the game will culminate in Jones “playing five or 10 minutes off the bench” against the Cornish All Blacks on Saturday, Biljon confirmed.

“Our players thought it would be fantastic to have a full-time athlete from a top American sport testing himself among our amateurs,” Biljon said.

“Because Dhani [pronounced Dee-hah-nee] is a defensive lineman, his catching and passing are the things we need to work on.

“All being well, he will come on the field as a flanker. I don’t think it will make much difference whether it’s blindside or openside.

“We just have to make sure that when he hits someone it is an opponent who has got the ball and that he’s not running an illegal blocking move.”
I'm willing to bet he's gassed after those 10 minutes.

He is. And I'm pretty sure he has been an OLB his entire career.

He will be exhausted in that ten minutes. Rugby is a very aerobic sport.

In saying that I bet his size/strength/power will still be a world above those around him.
