Shocking allegations have emerged surrounding the night in which it is alleged Jarryd Hayne sexually assaulted a woman.
New allegations have emerged that Jarryd Hayne bit the woman he is charged with sexually assaulting in September.
A reticent Hayne said nothing to reporters as the out-of-contract NRL star reported to police to satisfy his strict bail conditions for the first time.
Hayne, 30, was charged with aggravated sexual assault and inflicting actual bodily harm after handing himself into Ryde police station on Monday afternoon.
He was released in the early hours of Tuesday morning after first reporting to the station about 4pm on Monday.Police will allege the 26-year-old woman was bitten by Hayne, causing profuse bleeding that led to her going to hospital
, The Daily Telegraph reports.
It is also alleged Hayne had advised a taxi driver to wait for him outside after he was taken to the woman’s house in the Hunter region.
Police will allege the pair connected via social media before Hayne attended the house and entered her bedroom where he took off her clothes.
Her mother is understood to have been home at the time and will be a key witness.
Hayne said nothing as he was swamped by reporters on his way in and out of Castle Hill police station about 7.30pm.
He was granted strict conditional bail to appear at Burwood Local Court on December 10, a police statement said, without naming Hayne.
“Police will allege in court that the man attended a home in the Hunter region on Sunday 30 September 2018, and sexually assaulted a 26-year-old woman,” the statement read.
The assault allegedly took place on the night of the NRL Grand Final. It was reported Hayne declined to be formally interviewed.
According The Daily Telegraph, the bail conditions state he must live in the Sydney suburb of Norwest and report to The Hills police station three times a week. He was forced to surrender his passport and is banned from any international airports.
The code-hopping star also handed over $20,000 surety, and agreed to stay away from the complainant and the Newcastle local government area.
He must not stalk, harass or threaten his alleged sexual assault victim.
The charge carries a maximum 20-year jail term if Hayne is convicted. The NSW Criminal Code states “circumstances of aggravation” means circumstances in which “the alleged offender intentionally or recklessly inflicts actual bodily harm on the alleged victim”.
It’s understood the alleged victim was interviewed by the NRL’s integrity unit before the matter was referred to police.
The former Parramatta and NSW origin star is currently out of contract and the ongoing case is expected to severely damage his prospects of securing a new NRL deal.
“As this is a police matter the club will be making no public comment in relation to these reports,” a Parramatta spokeswoman said.
NRL CEO Todd Greenberg refused to comment on Hayne’s playing future on Tuesday.
“Jarryd has got issues to deal with and they have got nothing to do with rugby league at the moment,” Mr Greenberg told reporters. “So I am not prepared to talk about that for obvious reasons.”
A two-time Dally M Medallist, Hayne is one of the biggest names in the NRL thanks largely to his magical run to help Parramatta to the 2009 grand final. He has played 11 Tests for Australia and 23 State of Origins for NSW and scored 121 tries in 214 NRL games.
He also created headlines when he left the Eels to play in the NFL, running out for the San Francisco 49ers in late 2015.
However that one-year stay was plagued with drama, with Hayne still defending a civil court rape case made against him while living in the United States — an accusation he has long vehemently denied.
