Dally M winner Jarryd Hayne faces up to twenty years in prison after being charged by Ryde police for sexual assault after an incident in October.
Hayne has been released on bail after turning himself in overnight.
“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,” a police statement read.
The NRL’s integrity unit has been monitoring the situation for some time.
Hayne is still without a contract for 2019.
