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.

Kyle Juszczyk explains why offseason rumors don't affect Jimmy Garoppolo

Each offseason, Jimmy Garoppolo has to deal with those questioning whether he is the right quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. In 2020, after a Super Bowl appearance, rumors were circulating about his former mentor in New England, Tom Brady, possibly replacing him. This offseason, it has been everyone from Matthew Stafford to Deshaun Watson. Do chatter and constant doubt in Garoppolo's ability bother the quarterback? Not as much as one might believe, it seems. Soon-to-be free agent, 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, joined The Pat McAfee Show on Monday and shared why the constant rumors don't weigh on Garoppolo. It's because he doesn't listen to never-ending social media dialogue. In fact, he doesn't see much of it. "I think it would be

Sports Business Journal recently reported that Disney and the NFL reached an agreement on a new media rights deal that will renew Monday Night Football and return ABC to the Super Bowl rotation of broadcast networks in the coming years. It looks like there might be an even bigger shake-up in the works. This past season, the Week 16 broadcast between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals was exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, and the experience received mixed reviews. It was also made available for free on Twitch, giving viewers an additional option in finding a way to watch the game. However, those were the only options for fans outside the Bay Area, where a

Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis, one of the best to play the position, recently spoke with Fox News and shared his thoughts on what the Niners' offseason focus should be. San Francisco was in the Super Bowl just over a year ago. It followed up the impressive run with a six-win campaign in 2020. The 49ers hope to rebound in 2021, and that will start with the upcoming draft. San Francisco owns the No. 12 overall pick. While some feel that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch might try to target a rookie quarterback, Willis believes his former team can return to glory by focusing on defense this offseason. That starts with adding a pass rusher to line up opposite the team's young star, defensive end Nick
