Jarryd Hayne is without a club for 2019. From within the NRL St George-Illawarra are interested.

But surely a Super League club could be able to attract him? He can play full back, centre, wing or stand off, but full back is his most effective position.

Several Super League clubs should be interested in signing him. I would exclude Catalans, St Helens, Warrington, Wigan and Huddersfield, all of which have quality custodians signed. But other clubs could make good use of him. How about London Broncos? Hayne would make them a potent force in Super League.

Leigh Centurions nearly did, so why not ?

from the SF 49ers to 49 fans....good fit :SUBMISSION:
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Promoting and marketing in the British national media Hayne's SF 49ers background could attract many NFL-crazy fans living in London to London Broncos games.

The only drawback is that when such fans arrive at the Broncos home ground, they may either leave immediately, or decide never to come back. The unfortunate fact is that the Broncos home ground is totally inappropriate for Super League.

No he is not. Fiji officials have indicated that they are not interested in Hayne being part of their 2019 World Cup team. There has been no formal approach to him from any union clubs.

Hayne wants AU$700,000 a year.

He'd be cap busting surely so you'd need to employ his wife in the club shop.

Not really, as a marquee player he'd only count as £175k, but I think he'll remain in the NRL, St George are rumoured I think?
