Jarryd Hayne not ruling out rugby

Jarryd Hayne’s Manager says he remains open to a move to rugby union, after he missed out on being included in Fiji’s Rugby Sevens side for the Rio Olympics.

The New South Wales Waratahs announced on Tuesday they would not pursue the former NRL star and NFL player.

But Hayne’s Manager Wayne Beavis told Fox Sports on Wednesday his client was still interested in playing rugby.

But Hayne is unable to play for the Wallabies as he has already featured in the sevens for Fiji.

That prevents the Australian Rugby Union topping up his contract with any Super Rugby franchise.
