The recent sexual assault claim against Jarryd Hayne could spell the end of his career, with his two main suitors – Parramatta and St George Illawarra – reportedly set to drop their interest in the star outside back.
A woman reported the matter to police on Monday, after an incident that took place on grand final night in the Hunter region.
The woman spoke to the NRL integrity unit before going to the police, and the Sydney Morning Herald understand she has photos detailing the injuries she picked up from Hayne that night.
Hayne in not only embroiled in this sexual assault claim, with a woman in the US claiming the 30-year-old raped her in December 2015.
Hayne’s trial date for the US case has been confirmed for January 2020, although his career could well and truly be over before that date.
The veteran is unemployed after his contract at the Eels ran out at the end of the 2018 season, with Hayne playing 15 games for Parramatta during the campaign.
The Eels are now reportedly backing away from Hayne and withdrawing their interest according to SMH, and are no longer trying to find ways to fit him into their salary cap.
The Dragons were also reportedly looking for Hayne to fill one of their spots in the backline, although they’ve now too decided to look elsewhere.
