As per the heading Jarryd Haynes trial commences this week. Great image for the NRL with De Belins trial currently going on for sexual assault related offences and now Jarryd Haynes for similar. Anyway, reading the article, it appears that he has returned from his Christian Mission in Perth and has been training with current and former members of the Eels squad in Sydney and still has hopes of returning the the NRL. I make no comment in relation to the charges, trial or allegations for obvious reasons and would ask people to do the same. ( Super if that cannot be controlled or exposes the site then comfortable with and decision you make).
If he is guilty of the offences he has been charged with, then I hope he gets what he deserves. Likewise, if he is inncocent, I hope he gets the outcome he deserves in that regard. If found guilty, it is career over in my opinion.
If however he is acquitted, who thinks at age 32 any NRL Club would offer him a final crack? Would anyone want him back at the Eels? Would he be a replacement for Jennings for example? Are we better having moved on and leaving it at that?
