OFF-CONTRACT NRL star Jarryd Hayne is reportedly being investigated by the NSW Sex Crimes Squad after an alleged sexual assault on NRL grand final night this year.

Channel 9 reports Hayne is the subject of a police investigation after a woman made allegations of sexual assault against him after the pair met up in the Hunter Region on September 30.

According to the report, the woman, who had been in contact with Hayne via social media, claims she suffered injuries during the sexual encounter with the former Test player and has photographic evidence.

A statement from NSW Police issued to Channel 9 read: “Police are investigating following reports a woman was sexually assaulted by a 30-year-old man in late September. The investigation is being led by detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad. No further information is available at this time.”

Channel 9 reports the NRL Integrity Unit interviewed the woman making the allegations on Monday.

No charges have been laid and there is no suggestion that Hayne is guilty of any offence.

Hayne is currently defending a civil case in the United States with a woman accusing him of raping her while he was an NFL player with the San Francisco 49ers. Hayne has rigorously denied the allegations.

The two-time Dally M medallist is currently without an NRL contract for 2019 and beyond.

Parramatta have been unable to accomodate the ex-NSW Origin player’s asking price which has led him to have conversations with St George Illawarra.
