NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - The Saints conducted a workout with local rugby star, Tristan Blewett of the NOLA Gold, a league source told FOX 8 sports.

Blewitt, listed at 5′10 and 191 pounds, played outside center for the Gold in 2019. The South African native led the team with twelve tries.

Sean Payton is not afraid to look outside of the box for productive players. Blewitt is the first known rugby player to workout for the team.
