Hayne confident he can make an NFL roster

ALEX HEINKE reports.

Former NSW full-back Jarryd Hayne is confident he will make a NFL roster after a solid performance in trial matches in the US.

He says he still has a lot to learn but thinks he can crack the final 53-man roster at the San Francisco 49ers.


Hayne was the standout in the NFL preseason debut against Houston Texans on Sunday, playing both as a running back and kick returner and breaking through the Texans’ defence to make an eye-catching 53-yard run.

The former Parramatta Eels and NSW full-back told reporters on Friday, he is still in a process of adjustment from rugby league, but was confident he could make it in the NFL.

Hayne has crated a media storm in both Australia and his new home in the US, but most importantly he continues to excite coaches as they name the final squad on September 5.
