Around the world and back to Parramatta – a Hayne timeline

2006: Hayne makes first grade debut

Bursts onto the scene as a teenager, making his debut on the wing against the Penrith Panthers. He grabs his first two tries in his fourth game and goes on to score 17 in 16 games to win Rookie of the Year. Eels lose in week one of the finals to Melbourne.

2007: Rep jerseys abound

No signs of second year syndrome as Hayne scores a try on his Origin debut as NSW lose the series, but wins NSW Player of the Year honours. Switches to fullback mid-season for Parramatta, who reach the prelim before losing to the Storm again. Represents Australia for the first time.

2008: World Cup dreams

The Eels fall off a cliff and miss the finals – Hayne again plays Origin, but represents Fiji at the 2008 World Cup and reaches the semi-finals before being thrashed by the Kangaroos.

2009: The magic run

Starts the season playing five-eighth and centre, before a switch to fullback ignites the Eels and they make a run to the grand final after finishing eighth. They are once again thwarted by the Storm – his last NRL finals match for 7 years – but Hayne wins the first of his two Dally M medals.

2013-14: Origin and World glory

The Eels spend several years in the cellar, including wooden spoons in 2012 and 2013. But Hayne shines on rep duty, earning the top tryscorer award at the 2013 World Cup as the Kangaroos easily win the tournament. In the 2014 State of Origin, the Blues win the series for the only time in his career. Claims his second Dally M, joint-winner with Johnathan Thurston.

2015: The switch

Moves to the San Francisco 49ers, and grabs headlines throughout a highlight-filled pre-season. Plays eight regular season games and struggles to make an impact, before retiring from the sport in 2016 when the team hired a new head coach.

2016: Olympic dream and NRL return

After leaving America, Hayne expressed his desire to go to Rio with the Fijian rugby sevens team. He is left off the final roster for the Olympics as Fiji claim gold. After failing to come to terms with Parramatta, Hayne signs with the Gold Coast Titans for the second half of the 2016 season. They finish eighth and lose in week one of the finals.

2017: homecoming

The Titans finish second last as speculation mounts that Hayne is agitating for a return to Parramatta. The request is granted, as Hayne’s globetrotting career comes full circle.
