Rugby league star Jarryd Hayne 'unequivocally' denies raping woman

  • Hayne sensationally left the Parramatta Eels and rugby league to join the San Francisco 49ers in 2015

The woman, referred to as "Ms. V" in the lawsuit, was allegedly intoxicated at a bar with Hayne and taken to his home in an Uber.

A virgin at the time of the alleged rape, Ms V was fearful of speaking out for several months, before later seeking medical treatment for continued vaginal pain.

According to reports, the Santa Clara County DA's office investigated the alleged incident in October, 2016 but did not proceed with a criminal case due to insufficient evidence.

"He then had nonconsensual sexual intercourse with her, causing her significant physical pain", Mr Clune is quoted as saying in the suit paperwork.

The lawsuit was filed at The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, San Jose on Tuesday.

Jarryd Hayne has been accused of rape by a woman in the US.

The woman said in the lawsuit that she recalled little about that night but woke the next morning in a pool of blood, naked and draped in a sheet in Hayne's bed.

Hayne is being sued for sexual battery, battery, gender violence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.

Calling himself an idealist, Gandhi said current day politics in India is "devoid of truth and kindness and politics is being used to crush people".

Hayne's Australian lawyer Ramy Qutami said in a prepared statement that Hayne "unequivocally and vehemently" denies any wrongdoing.

She was initially hesitant to contact the authorities because she "had heard of many cases, especially involving high profile athletes, where victims were discredited and even blamed" but eventually reported the rape to the San Jose Police Department in May 2016.

USA attorney John Clune has made a name for himself taking on star athletes in court.

Hayne struggled to find his form with the Gold Coast Titans in the National Rugby League following a stint with the 49ers.

"We were unaware of these allegations until they were made public today", Chairman Max Donnelly said.

The NRL will monitor the civil case against Jarryd Hayne but at this stage will not suspend the Parramatta veteran for the start of the 2018 season.

"As with any legal matter, it is important that we follow due process and ensure that we review all relevant information available, including giving Jarryd the opportunity to respond", he said.

Hayne made eight appearances as a running back with the 49ers in 2015 after quitting rugby league to pursue a career American football.
