Hayne considering plenty of offers, says manager
Vodafone Fijian 7s international Jarryd Hayne and his manager are set to start discussions about his post-Olympic career from tomorrow. After retiring from the NFL after one season, Hayne made an underwhelming debut for Fiji at the London Sevens last week. The former NRL star is now in a race against time to develop his skills for the shortened version of the game ahead of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in August. Hayne has been in the spotlight since his stunning retirement from the NFL and there’s plenty of speculation that he is set to return to the NRL after the Olympics. Hayne’s manager, Wayne Beavis, wouldn’t reveal how many codes and NRL clubs wanted to sign his sought-after athlete, but he admitted that there has been several offers for the 28-year-old’s services. AAP hiatus, and they will need to come out the other side in strong fashion if they are going to be genuine title contenders. But in what really was a crunch game in Sydney last Friday night, they were the ones on the receiving end, as the Waratahs dished out a heavy 45-25 defeat to leave plenty for the Chiefs to ponder during the international window.
Obviously we’re incredibly disappointed, it was an important game for us,” Chiefs coach Dave Rennie said. “And now she’s a bit of logjam in the New Zealand conference. The boys are hurting. It was certainly a pretty quiet changing room. It meant a lot to them. So that’s probably a positive sign.”
