Who is Jarryd Hayne?

Jarryd Hayne (born 15 February 1988) is a former professional rugby league footballer who also briefly played American football and rugby union sevens.

Jarryd Hayne’s Life in Prison

He once stood at the top of the rugby league tree, but now Jarryd Hayne has been reduced to doing laps inside NSW’s oldest prison, labelled a “bottom-feeder” — a prison term used for sex offenders, murderers and disgraced celebrities.

For the first time the brutal reality of former NRL superstar Jarryd Hayne’s life behind bars at Cooma Correctional Centre has been laid bare in the first issue of Sydney Weekend magazine in the Saturday Telegraph.

The luxury lifestyle he once enjoyed has now been reduced to a cell with a double metal bunk he shares with a fellow inmate next to an open toilet. But this is what happens once you are convicted of rape as Hayne was in March.

Sentenced to a total of five years and nine months, Hayne will spend at least three years and eight months in jail after being found guilty of non-consensual sex with a woman he met on social media in 2018.

Hayne — like other Cooma inmates — is in a cell roughly the width of an arm span. It’s dark and cramped with the only source of natural light from a window slit high above which is covered to stop either the biting cold or searing heat.

Hayne spends 17 hours a day cooped up inside the cell which is deemed to be “below standard” by the on-duty prison officer. He is prison number 661736.

Hayne is reported to generally keep to himself in the prison yard that he shares with 162 other inmates. Housing medium and minimum security inmates, the men-only jail is often dubbed a “white collar prison”. It’s where they send corporate criminals, corrupt politicians, and disgraced celebrities to serve out their sentences under protection.

Also at Cooma are murderers, child sex offenders, and anyone else that fears for their safety in a mainstream jail.

A prison source says Hayne is a regular at the outdoor gym.

“They all like to keep fit — even if just walking laps, which is a prison thing,” the source says.

“There is not a lot of room to keep fit.”

The only recreational space is a small, concrete quadrangle, the gym, and a basketball hoop while Hayne has the opportunity to play football of the round-ball variety on the weekends.

When Hayne isn’t pumping iron, he is participating in the prison work program earning between $26 and $50 a week to spend on the buy-up. The parties and high-flying lifestyle of the past now nothing but a distant dream.

Jarryd Hayne Career

Hayne made his NRL debut with the Parramatta Eels at 18 years of age on 19 May 2006 against the Penrith Panthers at CUA Stadium. Jason Taylor, who was making his first-grade coaching debut, chose him on the wing. Taylor later said, “Everyone knew his talent, it wasn’t just me.”Hayne quickly made an impression on the competition scoring 17 tries within 16 games in his debut season.

He started the season at the center but later moved to fullback due to an injury to Luke Burt and scored 12 tries, including the winning try against the New Zealand Warriors in the First Qualifying Final of the 2007 NRL Finals series. Following Parramatta’s close victory against Brisbane in July 2007, Hayne was accused of diving to impede Brisbane’s momentum after a heavy hit from Sam Thaiday. 

At the start of the 2009 NRL season, Hayne played at five-eighth with very limited success. Hayne has moved back to his preferred position of fullback just before the round 8 clashes with the North Queensland Cowboys. His return to form at fullback prompted Dean Ritchie of Daily Telegraph to call Hayne “the most gifted Parramatta player since the great Brett Kenny.”Hayne’s performances for Parramatta stepped up to another level as the 2009 season progressed. 

On 2 August 2016, after his time in American football and rugby sevens, it was announced that Hayne would be returning to the NRL, signing a two-year contract with the Gold Coast Titans. His contract was touted to be as worth as much as $1.2 million a season, the most any NRL player has been paid in one year.

On August 21, 2019, Hayne was voted as one of the best players of the decade in the NRL team of the decade announcement which spanned from the 2010 to 2019 seasons. Premiership-winning coaches Phil Gould, Craig Bellamy, Trent Robinson, and Ricky Stuart were also part of the panel along with Hall of Famers Peter Sterling, Darren Lockyer, Danny Buderus, and Laurie Daley.

In 2009, it was reported that the new Greater Western Sydney franchise in the Australian Football League had offered Hayne a contract worth $1.5 million a season to quit rugby league and take up Australian rules football. On 17 December 2009, Hayne announced he would remain in the National Rugby League by re-signing with Parramatta for a further four years. The deal was reportedly worth $500,000 a season.

Greater Western Sydney Giants CEO Dave Matthews later confirmed the club did approach Hayne about a code switch in 2009. He was also reportedly chased by several rugby union teams at the time.

Rugby sevens career — Hayne made his rugby sevens debut for Fiji on 21 May 2016 at Twickenham Stadium in the London Sevens. He competed in five of the six matches for a total game time of approximately fifteen minutes.
