UPDATE: It’s the message he’s been waiting for.
Australian Jarryd Hayne has done the unthinkable and secured a spot on the San Francisco 49ers’ final 52-man NFL roster.
Hayne has made one of the greatest code-switches in sporting history after making the 49ers squad on Sunday morning (AEST).

The former Parramatta Eels star said waiting for the final deadline was not enjoyable, describing it as agonising.
“Yeah it was [nerve-racking]. Probably the last 10 minutes I was like ‘what’s going on, do I get a phone call? Is someone going to tell me that I have a job or not?’ So that was probably the first time I’ve been nervous in a while,” Hayne told The Sydney Morning Herald.
