Jarryd Hayne Sets Up 49ers Touchdown

The Hayne Plane taking flight.

Jarryd Hayne was within yards of a touchdown when his 49ers take on the New York Giants.

Hayne came in as a running back and he charged for an eight-yard gain.

The NFL tweeted the vision with the caption "So. Hard. To. Tackle."

It wasn't all good news for Hayne with the 49ers going down to the Giants

Hayne Mic-ed Up

The 49ers studios wired-up Jarryd Hayne with an NFL microphone

The 49ers studios wired-up Jarryd Hayne with an NFL microphone during last week's game against the Packers.

"Big dog come to eat, baby" Hayne can be heard saying.

"Why don't you kick it to me?" Watch the full video below.

Hayne Quiet As 49ers Beaten

Jarryd Hayne fumbled and quarterback Colin Kaepernick was atrocious as the San Francisco 49ers self-destructed and suffered their third straight loss.

The undefeated Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers dominated from the start, coming into the 49ers' Levi's Stadium on Sunday and leaving with a 17-3 victory.

The 49ers fall to a one win, three loss record and some of their veterans, including wide-receivers Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, were furious and showed frustration on the sideline after Kaepernick's poor throws.

49ers coach Jim Tomsula said the team was not fractured and backed Kaepernick as his quarterback.

"No, it's not fractured," Tomsula told reporters at a heated post-game press conference.

"I think there's a bit of frustration."

Former NRL star Hayne has had his share of highlights as a punt returner since joining the 49ers, but he was involved in one of the team's many lowlights when he fumbled a punt against the Packers.

Unlike his fumble four weeks ago in the opening game of the season against the Minnesota Vikings, Hayne was not solely to blame.

In the second quarter Packers punter Tim Masthay booted a short punt to the left side of the field, Hayne raced from the 25 yard line to around the 40 yard line to catch it.

In a crowd of opponents and team-mates, he signalled late for a fair catch.

His team-mates should have backed off, but they didn't see him waving his hands.

As Hayne went to catch the ball team-mate LJ McCray crashed back into the Australian, the live ball hit the ground and rolled toward the 49ers' end zone.

It was then a race between the 49ers and Packers special teams units, with 49er Dontae Johnson launching himself on the ball and diffusing play.

Hayne's statistics reflected the 49ers' forgettable day, with three punt returns averaging just four yards.

After last week's 37-yard punt return it seemed the Packers were wary of Hayne, with Masthay aiming for the sidelines so the former Parramatta Eel would have less room to move.

Rodgers continued his MVP-like year, completing 22 of 32 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown.

Kaepernick completed 13 of 25 passes for 160 yards, one interception and was sacked six times.

"I won't even go into that conversation," Tomsula, when asked if Kaepernick would be replaced, said.

"It's not even on my mind."

Anthony Mundine considers himself the best athlete to come out of Australia and argues that he is better than Jarryd Hayne.

"No one’s achieved or done half of the stuff that I’ve done," Mundine says in an interview with The Locker Room.


"If you do your research you will see that and I’ll never get the credit."

"I’m the best athlete ever produced - to come out of this country."

"All the hype that Jarryd — I’m not a hater ... I’m a positive dude, send positive vibes and Jarryd Hayne, what he’s doing is magnificent.

"But I’ve done so much more in so much of a harder sport. To switch from a team to an individual sport as boxing. And he’s going from a team to team. He’s doing well, but it’s gonna be hard."

Anthony Mundine puts forward convincing argument as to why he'...

Hayne Makes Incredible 37-Yard Return

Looks like the Hayne Plane has finally taken off in the NFL.

It hasn't been the best start for Jarryd Hayne in the NFL regular season as he's failed to impress in his last two matches to the standard that we saw in the pre-season.

Until now...

With 3 minutes left in the first half and the 49ers down 28-0 to the Arizona Cardinals, Hayne showed everyone what everyone knew he was capable of with an impressive 37-yard punt return.

Jarryd Hayne's 37-Yard Punt Return

With that run Hayne set up the 49ers first and only touchdown in a pretty hard day out for San Fran who went down to the Cardinals 47-7.

Looks like the Hayne Plane has finally taken off in the NFL.

Here's what the commentators had to say about Hayne's latest effort.

David Warner Spends Almost Half A Mil On Lambo

Australia's opener is very happy with his purchase of a Lamborghini Huracan

Australia's cricket vice-captain David Warner has spent almost half-a-million dollars on a new Lamborghini Huracan.

Warner's new Lambo is silver, can get up to speeds of over 320km/hr and go from zero to one hundred in a tick under three seconds.

Of course, the snappers spotted who else but Shane Warne going for a spin in the new car. 

The 28-year-old was elevated to deputy skipper when Michael Clarke decided to give it away after last month's unsuccessful Ashes series.

Good to see the new gig has some perks.

Warner is currently out of Australia's test series with Bangladesh following a thumb injury. The big-hitting left hander is expected to return before the Aussie summer.

Jason Day has won the BMW Championship to become the new No.1 in world golf.

The Queenslander is the third but youngest Australian behind Greg Norman and Adam Scott to assume the mantle.

Day won by six strokes from second-placed American Daniel Berger.

Matt Jones finished his efforts with a four-under-67 to finish at seven under par, which was not enough to survive to the Tour Championship next week.

Steven Bowditch finished with a 68 to be five under but has done enough to make it to the 30-man final shootout in Atlanta.

Ugly Scenes As Fight Breaks Out After Hayne's NFL Debut

Things turned sour outside Levi's stadium after the 49ers played the Vikings.

**Warning: Graphic footage**

Brutal fight between 49ers fans and a Vikings fan

After the excitement of Hayne's debut match of the NFL season for the San Francisco 49ers, things took an ugly turn as a fight broke out outside the stadium on Monday night.

The video clearly (and graphically) shows a group of 49ers fans descending on a Minnesota Vikings fan, punching and kicking him while he's on the ground as people try and break up the fight.

California Police have confirmed that they are aware of the footage and are investigating the matter after the video was uploaded to social media after the Monday Night Football match.

The 49ers have also released a statement saying, "We are aware of the disturbing incident following last night's game and are working in collaboration with the Santa Clara Police Department to investigate."

"The 49ers and our public safety partners have a steadfast commitment to ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all visitors to Levi's Stadium and unacceptable behaviour such as this will not be tolerated."

Unforunately it's a sour note after a win by the 49ers over the Vikings in which Hayne made his official NFL debut, helping the team to a 20-3 victory.
