In a league plagued with alleged in-game cheaters and off-the-field criminals, former rugby star Jarryd Hayne has been a bright spot for the current NFL pre-season.
Frankly, he’s the brightest spot for the 49ers right now, who have a bit of an uphill climb ahead of them this upcoming regular season. (And “a bit” is probably being kind.)
But the Aussie has certainly made his presense known over the last couple of weeks in the red-and-gold and no more than Thursday night against the San Diego Chargers.
