Hayne cut from Fiji Olympic rugby squad

Jarryd Hayne will not be at the Rio Olympics with the Fijian rugby team after being told at the end of last week he had been cut.

Speculation will now run rife as to his next career move with some believing his return to Parramatta via a short stint in Japanese rugby is guaranteed.

“This has been an amazing journey for me and a truly humbling experience. I have learnt so much and will never forget my time with this team” Hayne wrote on his Facebook page.

“I want to thank (Fijian coach) Ben (Ryan) and the entire coaching staff, the players and especially the fans. The support of the Fijian fans and fans around the world over the past few months has been incredible. I am mesmerised at the love and passion people have for the 7’s.

“For now, I’ll be in camp with the team until mid-week before heading back home to Sydney for some time out and will determine my next steps from there. I’ll enjoy watching from afar and wish the team all the best of luck on their road to Rio.”
