JASON WANTS TO FOLLOW JARRYD TO NFL – AND SAYS HE WON’T BE THE LAST

- CHRIS GARRY

JASON Taumalolo wants to play in the NFL and predicts Jarryd Hayne’s success will lead to a flood of NRL converts to American football.

Taumalolo loves NFL and hopes to become a running back in the mould of his favourite player, former Detroit Lions star Barry Sanders.

“Playing NFL didn’t cross my mind until recently when I realised that if someone like Jarryd Hayne can switch codes and make his dream come true then maybe the door could open for me,” Taumalolo said. “It is definitely an option for me.”

Taumalolo said Hayne’s form for the San Francisco 49ers would inspire Australian­s and Kiwis to chase their dreams in America.
