Thanks mate
Life after depth
No sound Rabbits, but Gird's was onto it

Thanks for being the positive voice throughout the Hayne off season.

There is still another Aussie here at the moment so I will follow closely.

And it will be fun to stick around to stir up some.

And English could not be happier IMO. No more convicts spoiling the beloved forum.

Game 2 of State of Origin like alfie langer did 10+ years ago

Game 1 is too close so hayne is getting some cardio and ball skills work by training with the Fiji 7's

Maybe it really is the twilight zone
well his playing this friday for Fiji in London,,
So looks like its the real deal??

But not sure about the Olympics rules???

Anyway, it will be the biggest replayed 7's event in history lol

Fairfax Media understands that Hayne will be recognised as a new player, not a retired player which would allow him to play under the WADA rules.

There also appears to be a loophole that will allow Hayne to play if he agrees to be placed in a testing pool that would see him subjected to stringent testing in the lead-up to the Olympics.
Haynes in World rugby has confirmed..

World Rugby notes the announcement that Jarryd Hayne wishes to pursue new sporting challenges with the Fiji rugby sevens team and has moved to address speculation regarding the player's availability under Regulation 21 to play sevens.

World Rugby is committed to the highest-possible anti-doping standards. The WADA-compliant World Rugby Regulation 21 mirrors the requirements of the World Anti-Doping Code and the WADA International Standard for Testing and Investigations. It does not require a player to be included in a testing pool for a defined period of time prior to selection if they are being selected for international competition for the first time. This position is entirely consistent with World Rugby's approach to other cross-over athletes, including other ex-NFL athletes coming into rugby.

Therefore, Hayne would be eligible for the London round of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series subject to all other regulatory and registration matters being met. He would also be immediately included in World Rugby's pre-Rio 2016 risk-based testing programme, which since January 2016 has included a comprehensive programme of targeted in and out of competition blood and urine testing on players likely to compete in Rio. The pre-Games programme also includes regular additional screening for substances such as ESAs and human growth hormone, and both steroidal and haematological athlete biological profiling.

Thanks for the Hayne and rugby update and it is still in hangover mode from the announcement but it may be better to leave this thread for current Aussie NFL players.

Suggest to,use this thread for Hayne and rugby.

Hayne hasn't ruled out a return to NFL.

This is interesting as I understand the 49ers still hold his rights in the NFL. So if he were to come back to NFL would it be to the 49ers or another franchise?
I thought he retired from NRL?? Dosn't that mean no more?? Maybe if we get 4 injured RB'S and 2 PR injuries lol

Thanks for pointing that out.

Yeah but if he does do the Rugby 7s it means he wont be finished until August and no NFL team will pick him up when the preseason has already started including the 49ers. He would have missed all the pre season training to get his head around playbooks and doing drills etc and what franchise is going to pick up a 1 year rookie who is a washed up project at that time of year. It is the same reason he was passed over during waivers last year.

If he comes back it will be next year and he will be getting too old and will be viewed as a quitter.

The likelihood of him coming back is slim

Nobody in NFL will want a quitter
