Jarryd Hayne has shown his San Francisco 49ers’ team-mates something NRL fans and opponents have known for years.
“A phenomenal athlete” was how 49ers’ quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, described Hayne.
While Hayne hasn’t played a single NFL game, Kaepernick, who has been playing American football since he was eight, has no doubt the former Fiji Bati rep has the talent and work ethic to succeed in the US.
Hayne believes he has about 20 weeks to impress the 49ers’ coaching staff.
The team has 90 players, but will cut the roster to 53 in September on the eve of the 2015-2016 season.
