Jarryd Hayne quits, rejected and now a Titan.

better age for an attempted switch.

Sometimes it just takes one guy to get the ball rolling, & Hayne was that guy. At least from the Oceania perspective.

Retiring afl players have been transitioning over for decades... not many, but some big names, and mostly as punters.
What is really new in past decade or so is the number of young aussies taking the college route.

Yeah, I deliberately left punters off the list. Aussies with AFL experience have a long history of contributing in the NFL. (It's a specialist skill-set that translates well to the NFL)

I also left out Aussies who played football in Oz & are on football scholarships in college.

I was giving Hayne credit for leading the way for true code-hoppers. The talented guys who excel at the domestic sports we play, but have a desire to pursue an American football career. It's a hard decision for guys to leave behind guaranteed millions for a crack at the unknown. Hayne really led the charge for athletes in Oceania in that respect. (I say Oceania as there are former English Premiership rugby players also following a similar path)

Hayne's biggest problem (Outside his massive ego) was always his age. But, young guys like Holmes at 23, have a much higher probability of success. One day I'm sure someone will pull off the difficult feat. (Maybe it will be Holmes?)

What if Trump is really the father of Jacinda's baby?
