Video: Jarryd Hayne disputes rumors of NRL return

Apr 13, 2016 at 12:49 PM--


San Francisco 49ers RB Jarryd Hayne was one of multiple players that spoke to the media today at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara. One tidbit that Cam Inman of the Mercury News provided was Hayne disputing rumors of a National Rugby League return, showing that he is fully dedicated to moving forward with his NFL career. The rumors were started by the Australian media.

You can watch the video, provided by Inman, below.


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area posted another video of the same interview, in which Hayne speaks about being more comfortable in his role as he gets set to kick off his second year in the league.



Hayne was on the active roster to start the season for six games before being deactivated prior to the team's first matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. He was waived the following week and when no other team claimed him, was signed to the 49ers' practice squad. He returned to the active roster in December, just prior to the 49ers' game against the Detroit Lions.


Hayne was a big Australian media storyline during the 2015 preseason. In 2014, he left a stellar career in the National Rugby League to chase his dream of playing in the NFL.

Last season, Hayne appeared in eight games, rushing for 52 yards on 17 carries. He also had six receptions for 27 yards and eight punt returns on special teams, averaging 9.5 yards per return.

What the return of Trey Sermon means to the 49ers' backfield

The San Francisco 49ers hit the road this Sunday to face the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. What is surprising, and quite frankly a pleasant change, the 49ers are the healthiest they've been in recent memory. Rookie running back Trey Sermon looks to be back this week since landing on IR in early December for an ankle injury. So, what kind of impact will Sermon have to the 49er's backfield? Honestly, probably none. He would be an added depth piece sure but will more than likely find himself on special team's units which is still something. The 49ers back field has been a bit of mystery this season. Rookie running back Elijah Mitchell has been the work horse for the 49ers, rushing for 963 yards on 207 carries and five
