…it happened just before he signed the contract. He had to ask for special permission from the NRL.
There was no way Hayne was going to compete with the athletes in the US without being on a level playing field. Hence why he is bigger, stronger and faster than ever.
He left as equal with JT as the best player in the NRL. He is now superman.
I noticed this and not surprised as it’s mostly condoned in the NFL. Hayne actually has a man physique now compared to his boy body before he left.
His one on one tackle to save a try just showed how strong he has become.
Will he fade in the absence of his performance enhancements? Surely he can’t maintain the physique and that level of strength without them, if that’s what he used to get there?
