  • Jarryd Hayne accused of rape in the States                                   
          LEAGUE

The woman claims sexual battery, battery, gender violence, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress in her lawsuit.

Hayne played nine seasons in the NRL for the Parramatta Eels before his shock announcement in October, 2014 he was leaving for the USA to pursue a career in the NFL. Qutami said that Hayne cooperated with a police investigation at the time.

The allegation comes more than one year after the case was reviewed and rejected by the District Attorney's Office, which concluded there was not enough evidence to prove the crime of rape beyond reasonable doubt.

"Mr Hayne unequivocally and vehemently denies the allegations which are the subject of the civil complaint". The woman was heavily intoxicated, and "despite having minimal interaction that night", Hayne took the woman back to his home in an Uber.

The alleged incident with a "Ms. V" took place in December 2015.

The papers state Ms V has no recollection of how she entered Hayne's home, and only remembers "seeing a silhouette of a man with [Hayne's] build coming towards her".

The next morning, the woman suffered from sharp vaginal pain and observed blood on the bed sheets and on her vagina, the lawsuit claims.

It is believed the woman initially reported the incident to the San Jose Police Department in May 2016.

Civil suits generally seek a financial outcome rather than criminal charges.

A San Francisco 49ers spokesman said "this is the first we have heard of this matter and the alarming allegation regarding a former employee".

But the stint was short lived.

Hayne retired from the NFL in May a year ago and eventually singed on for the 2017 NRL season with the Gold Coast Titans, before turning out for Fiji in last month's Rugby League World Cup.

"The club has been made aware of serious allegations regarding Jarryd Hayne during his time with the San Francisco 49ers", Parramatta chairman Max Donnelly said in a statement.

"As with any legal matter, it is important that we follow due process and ensure that we review all relevant information available, including giving Jarryd the opportunity to respond".
