Fallen NRL star Jarryd Hayne to try soccer - report

Jarryd Hayne
Jarryd Hayne is set to take up soccer, according to a News Corp report.

Code-hopping troubled ex-NRL star and former San Francisco 49er Jarryd Hayne is reportedly to take up soccer.

News Corp Australia says the Dally M winner has registered to play for a local club on the NSW Central Coast and could turn out as early as Sunday.

Hayne is said to live in the area and until recently, at least, has been training with rugby league club Woy Woy.

The switch, if it eventuates, would mean the 31-year-old has played four football codes.

He left the Parramatta Eels as one of the NRL's most recognised stars in 2015 to pursue a stint with the 49ers in the NFL.

Hayne then had a brief fling on the rugby sevens circuit before missing selection in Fiji's 2016 Olympic team and returned to league with the Gold Coast Titans.

He again turned out for the Eels in the NRL in 2018 but the club declined to renew his deal after he was accused of sexually assaulting a 26-year-old Hunter Valley woman last September.
