Notorious code-hopping and nation-hopping Australian athlete Jarryd Hayne has today announced his newest career move.
It’s one that no one saw coming, except for maybe a couple of police officers back in California
After winning his second Dally M Medal as the NRL’s best player in 2014, Jarryd Hayne announced a shocking lifelong dream of playing NFL in the US. He had a coffee date with the San Francisco 49ers but was eventually waived after featuring on the front cover on the NFL xBox Game in Australia.
In 2016, he played sevens rugby for Fiji in a failed attempt to redeem himself and play for their Olympic team, unfortunately he was overlooked for a position in the gold-medal-winning team, and was forced to head back to the NRL.
Hayne returned to the Eels at the end of 2017 but was not re-contracted by Parramatta at the end of this NRL season.
However, his newest dream sees him potentially signing up for a twenty year contract with the Silverwater sevens. A western Sydney football side that is notorious for it’s gruelling selection criteria.
Many skeptics say Jarryd Hayne might not make the side and that it’s all hearsay, while others across all codes believe he will be wearing green by the end of the year.
Hayne is due to appear at Burwood Local Court on December 10.
