Jarryd Hayne: Is the story as huge in OZ as the American papers say it is?

Jump to last reply

All the Northern California papers/media outlets are saying Jarryd Hayne making the 49er roster is huge HUGE news in Australia. True, or mostly hype by Niner media/fans?

Would it be comparable to say an NBA super star (Shaq/Kobe/Michael in their days - LeBron now) jumping to a different sport and succeeding?

It is a feel good story here in for sure and from what I've heard so far he seems to be a great guy. (I'm a huge Niner fan -- even went see them play a Wembley a couple of years ago)
