National Football League, or NFL, scouts from the San Francisco 49ers; Philadelphia Eagles; New York jets; and 12 other teams have sat up and taken notice of National Rugby League, or NRL, stars Valentine Holmes and Jason Taumololo.

Holmes and Taumololo amazed the scouts from the above-mentioned NFL teams during a two-hour training drill in Los Angeles, despite encountering more than a few hiccoughs and raising a number of unanswered questions. The players will now have to endure a nerve-wracking wait to see if any of these teams request a second session, or simply make an offer to tempt them away from the NRL.

A scout in the employ of the Philadelphia Eagles, who has asked to remain anonymous, has stated, after the workout that took place on Saturday at the Loyola High School, near downtown Los Angeles that it was probably too soon to know the answers to these questions.

They are Big, Strong Athletes According to the Scouts

The scouts reviewing the performances of Valentine Holmes and Jason Taumololo represented the 49ers from San Francisco; the Bears from Chicago; the Jaguars from Jacksonville; the Colts from Indianapolis; the Packers from Green Bay; the Chiefs from Kansas City; the Jets from New York; the Bills from Buffalo; the Browns from Cleveland; the Cardinals from Arizona; the Chargers from San Diego; and the Seahawks from Seattle. They assembled on the field, clipboards and stopwatches in hand, and oversaw the NFL drills being run by Holmes and Taumololo.

They were described as big, strong athletes by the Eagles Scout, who added that the NFL required players who were able to combine balance with strength; body control; and change in direction, and that Taumololo and Holmes had these qualities in spades.

Jeffrey Foster, president of National Football Scouting based in Indianapolis, who organised the workout, was reported to have been impressed by the intellect the two athletes displayed, as well as their physical talent.

Foster organises the yearly NFL combine that brings the finest college football prospects together before each of the NFL drafts, and has reported that players will generally train for between six and eight weeks in order to perfect the 40-yard sprint; cone drills; and other requisite skills.

The fact that both of these athletes, after being told what was required of them, did the exercises perfectly the first time, spoke volumes of them in terms of their ability to listen to orders, and perform well under considerable pressure.
