Hayne run stuns


JARRYD Hayne impressed his San Francisco 49ers teammates by crashing through five defenders for a touchdown yesterday.

Hayne’s run came during practice at the NFL team’s Santa Clara facility. The touchdown was reminiscen­t of Hayne’s NRL career highlights with Parramatta, NSW and Australia.

The 49ers’ four-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Joe Staley was impressed with the Australian’s power.

“That was pretty rugbyesque, kind of lateral, bumping off people,” Staley said.

Hayne is battling to make the 49ers’ 53-player squad for the upcoming NFL season.
