It is always interesting to hear the Australian perspective on their favorite NRL star. The Footy Show, a television series focusing on the NRL in Australia, recently discussed San Francisco 49ers running back and return man Jarryd Hayne and his impact in the NFL.

Of course, as most know by now, Hayne is a former Rugby League superstar who left to pursue a career in the NFL. The show discusses Hayne and his NFL running style and how he is bringing the same level of excitement to the NFL that he brought to the NRL.

The Footy Show panel discusses Hayne's brilliant vision in traffic in both the NFL and NRL. They even use split screen to compare him in the NRL and in the NFL.
