Hayne's Rio Dream Over Before It Begins
Former rugby league and NFL star Jarryd Hayne has revealed on his Facebook page that he won't be going to the Rio Olympics after missing the final cut for the Fiji seven's rugby squad.
“Last Friday I had a meeting with Ben to discuss my future with the team and I was informed that my time has ended. As much as I would have loved to go to Rio, I too knew I wasn’t ready yet,” Hayne said.
“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.”
Hayne made headlines after he ditched his NFL dream after just one season with the San Francisco 49ers to try and crack aspot with the world champs of sevens rugby.
There is increased speculation that Hayne will return to the Parramatta Eels in 2017.
