  • Jarryd Hayne accused of rape during time with San Francisco 49ers

Rugby league superstar Jarryd Hayne has been accused of rape in a civil suit filed in an American court - alleging the cross-code athlete committed the crime during his brief stint in the NFL. The woman claims she got extremely drunk and then was taken to Hayne's home in an Uber.

Ms V reported the alleged incident in May 2016, the same month that Hayne quit the National Football League, saying he wanted to try to make the Fiji rugby sevens team for the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.

The lawsuit was filed at The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, San Jose on Tuesday. Her lawsuit says that, during the ride back to Hayne's place, she "passed out in the vehicle due to her extreme level of intoxication".

He won a contract with the San Francisco 49ers but was released after one season, which ended in mid-2016. AAP understands it's now with local police. Her last memories were falling face down on the bed, seeing a light from the hallway, and the continued sharp vaginal pain.

In the statement of complaint, the plaintiff says she didn't immediately report the incident to authorities because she feared being discredited or blamed.

Hayne and Ms. V had mutual acquaintances but no relationship, Liberty said.

Meanwhile, Hill is 14th in the league in punt return yards and is one of four players in the AFC with a return touchdown. It's the second straight season he's been given the nod after making it last season as a member of the Baltimore Ravens.

Hayne is being sued for sexual battery, battery, gender violence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.

According to court documents Hayne admitted he "hooked up" with the woman.

Hayne's NRL club, Parramatta, said they were unaware of the allegations until Wednesday.

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

However, it is expected Hayne will be interviewed by the NRL's integrity unit upon his return to Australia. The fact that Hayne is at the centre of a civil action rather than a criminal one leaves the NRL in a hard position, no matter the outcome in a United States court, and officially all League Central has said publicly is that it is monitoring the situation.

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