49ers coach did not sound like Rugby star Jarryd Hayne was making much of an impact

The San Francisco 49ers signed Rugby star Jarryd Hayne a month or two ago and many were hoping for great things. Well after the first OTA’s coach Jim Tomsula sounded like he was not that impressive. He said basically he is still playing Rugby.  

“Am I thrilled that he’s here? Absolutely,” 49ers coach Jim Tomsula said, according to The Sacramento Bee. “He’s a neat dude. All that stuff’s great. He’s running around and learning his stuff. He’s dedicated and committed. He’s a pro. He’s been a pro for a long time.”

“When you watch what we’re doing here, he’s still playing rugby,” Tomsula said. “There are no pads here. He’s fielding balls and running around in shorts and a T-shirt.”
