Jarryd Hayne supporter launches impromptu PROTEST to free former NRL star found guilty of rape – as he is imprisoned in NSW High Court in dramatic scenes

  • Fan of Jarryd Hayne showed her support on a train in Sydney
  • Clip from southwest Sydney was uploaded to TikTok on Thursday
  • Hayne was found guilty of rape after a recent third trial
  • Jailed Friday by Judge Richard Button in dramatic scenes

A passionate fan of Jarryd Hayne has expressed support for the fallen NRL star on a train in south west Sydney.

It comes as the 35-year-old arrived at the NSW High Court on Friday and was later jailed in dramatic scenes by Judge Richard Button.

The court previously heard there was ‘no doubt’ Hayne will be sentenced to prison after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman in 2018 in Fletcher, on the outskirts of Newcastle.

Hayne will be formally sentenced on May 8.

In a clip uploaded to TikTok on Thursday, the impassioned supporter can be heard saying “free Jarryd Hayne” repeatedly as the train stopped at Minto – the same suburb where two-time Dally M Medal winner grew up.

And it didn’t take long for TikTok users to comment on the puzzling video.

“Must be a former cheerleader at Parramatta,” one joked while another posted “must love public transport in Sydney.”

Last Thursday, NSW District Court Judge Graham Turnbull SC allowed Hayne to remain free on bail to help sort his family out.

The Director of Public Prosecutions this week asked a higher court to reverse the ruling and jail the former Parramatta Eels’ favorite son.

After the verdict, Hayne was handcuffed in court before being taken to jail.

He will then be driven by prison van to Silverwater or Parklea maximum correctional center.

Hayne briefly put his arm around the shoulder of his lawyer, Margaret Cunneen SC, after walking into court on Friday.

Ms. Cunneen said Hayne’s case was one of special or exceptional circumstances, to which His Honor said those circumstances should justify his continued bail.

Hayne was convicted for the second time by a jury earlier this month.

After his first conviction, he spent nine months in prison in Cooma, an hour’s drive from Canberra, before Hayne had his previous conviction overturned on appeal last year.

He is again expected to appeal his latest conviction to the Court of Appeal and continue to maintain his innocence.
