Hayne shines again for 49ers in NFL pre-season

Jarryd Hayne has all but sealed his place on the San Francisco 49ers’ 53-man NFL roster for the 2016/17 season after another sensational pre-season showing against the Dallas Cowboys.

Firstly, Hayne delivered a 27-yard punt return after taking an outstanding overhead catch. 

He backed that up with a scorching 34-yard punt return later in the first half, beating defenders and exploding into open space.

Capping a magnificent game, Hayne produced a 34-yard rush, featuring a whip-crack of a fend and blinding speed.

Hayne’s stats for the day read eight carries for 54 yards and three punt returns for 84 yards.

The 27-year-old NRL great’s stunning transition to American Football is gathering momentum as the No.1 story of the NFL pre-season, adapting to the nuances of a completely new code with startling ease.

Hayne’s former teammates are in raptures as #haynemania takes hold on both sides of the world.
