A Portuguese rugby international took on the NFL's best punters - this is what happened

While Rugby League star Jarryd Hayne attracted a lot of attention last year after switching to the San Francisco 49ers, a significant number of Union players had already attempted to break into the NFL, with various levels of success. 

One such player to take that route is Joe Gardener. The Australian born Portuguese international played professionally in Japan and semi-professionally in Portugal, and is in the process of taking a tilt at the NFL and as we understand it is currently a free agent. 

He been involved in Kohl's Football Kicking Camps - a specialist in elite level kicking coaching for the NFL. It's clear from the video that he is more than capable of mixing with the very best the NFL has to offer.
