1. Jarryd Hayne has been charged with sexual assault.
Hayne, 30, was charged with aggravated sexual assault and inflicting actual bodily harm after handing himself into Ryde police station on Monday afternoon.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
A woman claims she suffered injuries during a sexual encounter with Hayne in the NSW Hunter Valley and that she had photographs to back up her story.
It’s understood the alleged victim was interviewed by the NRL’s integrity unit before the matter was referred to police.
Police allege the assault of the 26-year-old woman took place in a Hunter region home on September 30.
Hayne has been granted strict conditional bail to appear at Burwood Local Court on December 10.
The former Parramatta and NSW origin star is currently out of contract and the allegations will severely damage his prospects of a new NRL deal.

Jeffrey Slack helped in the search for a seven-year-old girl who went missing for 30 minutes at a Kogarah dance studio on Thursday.
With the help of local father Nicola Gilio, Slack located the young girl in the bathroom of St George Dance Studio. She was allegedly being sexually assaulted at knife point by a 54-year-old man.
Gilio was allegedly stabbed in the abdomen and neck during the altercation and other citizens made a citizen’s arrest.
“It was all very traumatic. It was a shocking experience, trust me,” Stack told 9News.
