Former Parramatta Eels player Jarryd Hayne has been charged over an incident involving a Hunter Valley woman on the night of the 2018 NRL Grand Final.

According to Channel 9 and Channel 10 on Monday night, Hayne had reportedly been charged with “aggravated sexual assault – inflict actual bodily harm” from the night of September 30th.

The NRL Integrity Unit had recently been made aware of the incident and are closely following the situation after informing the NSW Police.

Hayne was later at the Ryde Police Station on Monday afternoon to speak to detectives from the NSW Sex Crimes squad.

NRL.com received this following statement from the NSW Police Force:

“Detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad arrested a 30-year-old man at Ryde Police Station just after 4pm today (Monday 19 November 2018). No further information is available at this time.”

Hayne, 30 years of age, is no longer contracted to Parramatta, although recently had been linked to discussions with the Eels as well as the St George Illawarra Dragons.

No contract agreements have been finalized or signed by the former Dally M Medalist for the 2019 season.

    • Well put and that just about sums it up. It may yet be proven that he has given other people nightmares as well. If true he will have a LOT of time to reflect on this and on what might have been.

  1. The article say “Detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad” were involved – is this detectives from 2 different groups are involved, or it is the one group of detectives doing both type of work? Basically I am trying to work out whether the girl was of age or not?

  2. I’m sorry Hayne but this is no bloody dream either lol.. your going to jail
    The penalty for this crime is between 2-20 years in Jail. And a $10,000 fine..
    Good thing parramatta or Dragons didn’t sign him up.

    • Hayne is still entitled to the presumption of innocence until he has had his day in court. I get a feeling though that he is not looking forward to that day as the extent of physical evidence against him appears overwhelming. Additionally, their is an eye witness (the girl’s mother) who was in the house at the time.

      I don’t think anyone should be taking a shot at any particular religion though unless they are also prepared to also talk about cartoons that receive a violent response or orange jumpsuits on Y0utube.

    • Thanks to on going targeted censorship (which is NOT enforced across the board I will split the above post…

  3. What is it religious hypocrites, do as I say, not as I do. You’d think after what happened in the USA he’d keep a low profile and be squeaky clean.

    • Just because he went to a church which is really a rock concert which they tell me there is more music than preaching, doesn’t mean he is a hypocrite. More like he stopped going to his rock concert church and went into the world of the fallen angel. Obviously he is not a church goer now and his actions would make the fallen angel happy. You cant judge all fair dinkum believers and doers because this believer and ex doer has run amok after leaving his church.

      Maybe he will play jail footy for the Bathurst bug.gerers, or the Maitland pillow.biters

      • Woody, see my above response. Don’t judge one f@ith by a “gimmick” church and a “fake” follower. There are plenty of examples of this for every religi0n. Why is it that only one gets singled out and attacked every time but those that are guilty of far greater evi1s get a free pass because they are “dangerous” and “off limits”?

        Either “share the love” or keep religi0n out of debates. Let’s try to be balanced, fair and consistent. Fair enough?

  4. Sad end to an at times brilliant career. 2006 , 2009 and 2014 were his best. But he does have a bit of form in this area. In his debut season i seem to remember him biting a girl in a bar in Parramatta. Thought he supposed to be a good Hillsong worshiper type.

    • Yes, well LidcombeOval did you not see the story on 60 minutes the other night about the Hillsong pastor who had an interest in ‘kiddies’ and now they are pursuing his son (also a pastor at Hillsong) for not disclosing the ‘acts’ when he found out about them?

      • @ LidcombeOval and dreaglor

        Equal opportunity guys. Are you going to talk about the religi0n that mass@cres people because of a cart00n, supresses the freedom of women or carries out public behe@dings after a “kangaroo court” sham trial? Or are you afraid of ending up on Y0ut00be in an 0range jump$uit?

    • You can’t seriously believe that. There is no factual evidence to support that statement, infact quite the contrary. It’s much easier to say (once this has been proven) that Locke was a better man off the field than Hayne ever was.

  5. And now its clear what he wanted from the Dragons – someone to stump up court costs!! He knew that this was coming, knew he had no ongoing contract to foot the bill and wanted to use the dragons money. Guilty or not, he is a low human being – thank god the dragons are free of him. Would rather lose games than have him disgrace the Red V

    • “Would rather lose games than have him disgrace the Red V”

      Ditto with any talk of James Roberts or Matt Lodge coming to Souths.
