A very good piece on the state of the Aussies just prior to Hayne getting a roster spot about the Aussie history in the NFL.

SB rings, All pro teams, Pro Bowlers. The achievements are very promising for the future.

Most of them cheat. They were just stoopid about it.

yep. he would've been a solid talent, no doubt about it. you have to be something really special to make the NFL with such little experience. plenty of people have the athleticism, but do they have a football mind?

Almost certainly he will have left his mark which will inspire others to follow in his tracks

Jamie Keehn at camp tryout for Carolina Panthers. LSU grad from Queensland and came through the Prokick school.

Of note he will be under the notorious Thomas MacGaughey. He would also join fellow Aussie David Yankey.

Jarryd Hayne said something similar although their journeys were very different.

Don't know what to say about Hayne. Not For Long experiment over. Now we can all get on with reality.
