Jarryd Hayne

Woman claims Hayne bit her

The 30-year-old refused to answer questions from reporters when he was dropped off in a grey ute outside Castle Hill Police Station yesterday.

The two-time Dally M award-winner spent 10 minutes with police before trying to dodge the cameras as he got back into the ute and drove off.

NSW Police confirmed the charge, which came after a 26-year-old woman lodged a complaint to the NRL Integrity Unit earlier this year.

Fiji unveil Pacific Test squad to face PNG

Hayne is just one of a number of NRL players included, with the likes of Suliasi Vunivalu, Akuila Uate, Kane Evans, Marcelo Montoya and Jayson Bukuya also named.

Wests Tigers speeder Kevin Naiqama will again captain the side from fullback, while Hayne will line-up in the halves.

While the backline has plenty of firepower, injuries to Viliame Kikau, Korbin Sims, Daniel Saifiti and Api Koroisau will mean the forward pack’s depth will be tested.

Parramatta open to Hayne taking ownership of team

Arthur is one of few coaches to have prospered with colourful personality back at his club.

Hayne has played under eight coaches in his 11-year NRL career.

Arthur began his turnaround of the Eels with Hayne in his team in 2013 and 2014, where the NSW Origin star won the Dally M in his last season before shifting to American Football.

The Eels mentor told Fox League's NRL 360 that the key would again be giving Hayne a voice in the club's premiership charge.

Both in his return to the Parramatta Eels and clearing his name amid rape accusations set for a Santa Clara courthouse in April.

When he signed with the Eels just over a month ago, the most common question asked was whether he would be the same player again.

Now there are far more pressing concerns at play, with some wondering if he will ever be the same person again.

Not many would have done what Jarryd Hayne and the Eels orchestrated on the first day of his second coming on Wednesday.

Hayne to defend rape allegation

Hayne declined to answer questions on the December 2015 matter when he fronted the media after returning to NRL club Parramatta on Wednesday for the first time since 2014.

His lawyers later revealed in a statement that he had made contact with the plaintiff, while Hayne said he had told his US legal representatives to have the matter resolved "as quick as possible" after it was revealed a civil suit had been launched last month.

"I confirm that I unequivocally and vehemently deny the allegations made against me and I will be vigorously defending the matter," Hayne said.

Norman happy with Hayne homecoming

Speaking from the Eels’ pre-season camp in Alice Springs, Norman backed the club’s decision to sign Hayne and is confident the guidance of coach Brad Arthur will provide the one-time Parramatta poster boy with the ideal environment to rediscover his mojo.

“I got the opportunity to play with him in 2014 and had a great year that year,” Norman told NRL.com after training in the Northern Territory.

“I know he hasn’t had the best 18 months ... but I think he’s coming back here to really get a bit of credibility back. He’s only on a one-year deal and he did take a big pay cut.

Hayne 'didn't fit in' at Titans: Friend

Following Thursday's announcement that Hayne and the Titans have parted ways, Gold Coast now have the salary cap space to target a quality fullback. Friend suggested the club look within to find a replacement.

Titans have 'no regrets' over Hayne

Annesley said he met Hayne early on Thursday where he expressed his desire to return to Western Sydney to be near his wider family and friends.

The Titans granted a release, which is effective immediately, and Hayne is expected to return to his former club Parramatta Eels although no deal has been done.

Annesley said he did not feel let down by Hayne’s decision despite not serving his full two-year contract.

“I am firmly of the view that you can have contracts and sign all sorts of things but you really need to have people’s hearts and minds involved,” he said.

Superstar Hayne happiest with Fiji

The Fiji five-eighth backed the call of Tonga prop Andrew Fifita to have a combined Pacific Islands side included in future Four Nations tournaments, against New Zealand, Australia and England.

Hayne and Fifita were part of the Kangaroos team that won the 2013 Rugby League World Cup and are now among players from, so-called, tier-one nations opting to play for their country of heritage. Fifita said a team comprising Tonga, Fiji, and Samoa players would be a match for anyone and Hayne's a believer too.

Eels deal to bring Hayne home

NRL.com understands the Eels are open to welcoming him back – but only on their terms. Those terms are likely to be a take-it-or-leave-it $500,000 one-year deal that would mean Hayne would sacrifice at least half a million dollars if he chooses to walk out on the Titans to rejoin his old team.
