Convicted rapist and ex-NRL star Jarryd Hayne has lodged court papers appealing against his lengthy jail term for raping a Newcastle woman. Hayne was sentenced to five years and nine months in prison on Thursday after being convicted in March of sexually assaulting a woman in her bedroom on the night of the 2018 Grand Final. He is eligible for parole in three years and eight months. Hayne has since notified the NSW Supreme Court of his intention to appeal the ruling, ABC News reported. A NSW District Court jury had found Hayne guilty of two counts of sexual intercourse without consent.

Convicted rapist and ex-NRL star Jarryd Hayne has lodged court papers appealing against his lengthy jail term for raping a Newcastle woman.

The Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) is considering stripping convicted rapist Jarryd Hayne of his individual accolades but will wait for the outcome of his appeal.

Hayne was found guilty of two counts of aggravated sexual assault and was sentenced to five years and nine months in prison at the Newcastle District Court on Thursday, before appealing against the terms today.

The fallen NRL star was once praised for his ability on the rugby league field, retiring as a two-time Dally M Player of the Year winner, three-time Brad Fittler medallist and Rookie of the Year in 2006, however, those individual honours could easily be taken away.

Jarryd Hayne to face sentence hearing

  Jarryd Hayne to face sentence hearing Former NRL player Jarryd Hayne is due to face a sentence hearing in Newcastle, six weeks after being found guilty of sexual assault charges.Hayne, whose multi-code career included stints at the Parramatta Eels, San Francisco 49ers and Fiji rugby sevens team, is due to face Newcastle District Court on Thursday, six weeks after he was found guilty of two counts of sexual intercourse without consent.

The tattooed Jarryd Hayne supporter accused of spitting at a rape victim as she left court is a father-of-one who is on bail for a stalking offence. Mina Greiss, 38, from Mount Druitt in Sydney's west, is the alleged 'grub' accused of spitting as the brave woman was escorted out of Newcastle court on Thursday evening. Daily Mail Australia can exclusively reveal that police have identified Greiss as the bearded man in the plain shirt who is at the centre of a social media storm. The tattooed man was among a large scrum of supporters accompanying Hayne and his wife Amellia Bonnici on the day he was jailed for

Jarryd Hayne had a “scrum of support” post sentencing. His victim abused and harassed outside court. So no surprise he felt such entitlement as to rape and destroy another person with no remorse. The player said that Hayne would be all-but incapable of having a conversation without mentioning a bible extract, and defense barrister Richard Pontello cited Hayne 's sincere reconnection with his faith as a sign that he was highly unlikely to re-offend and could be rehabilitated. The judge did not regard the prospect of that happening as being high because Hayne continues to protest his innocence.

"Yes, there will be consideration given and the commission has already discussed it," ARLC chief executive Peter V'landys told 2GB.

"It's not hard to take them away but we don't want to prejudice the legal process. We would like to see Jarryd exhaust his appeal process. Once he does that we'll make a decision.

"Naturally, we will consult the Parramatta club that he played with, but I think it's a bit early to be considering it."

Aside from V'landys's comments on 2GB, the ARLC are yet to release a formal statement following Hayne's sentencing, which former NRL gender adviser Professor Catharine Lumby says would be an appropriate measure for the game.

"I would be making a strong statement. I would be saying that sexual assault is totally unacceptable, and that anyone who has sexually assaulted women will bear the consequences," Professor Lumby told the ABC.

Convicted sex offender and fallen NRL star Jarryd Hayne has launched an appeal against his rape conviction . A spokesperson for the courts confirmed Hayne ’s legal team had filed a notice of intention to appeal in the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal . It is not known what the grounds of the appeal will be , but Hayne has continued to profess his innocence, despite a jury of seven men and five women finding him guilty of both charges of performing oral and digital sex on the woman without her consent on NRL grand final night in 2018.

Fallen NRL star Jarryd Hayne , 33, was jailed on Thursday in Newcastle court. Hayne was found guilty of two counts of sexual intercourse without consent. Jailed for a minimum of three years and eight months following 2018 incident. Ex-teammates Tony Williams & Krisnan Inu publicly backed Hayne on 'Before I let this be just want to congratulate the victim and the so called justice system you've sent an innocent brotherly to jail away from his kids you bunch of flops…that's all respectively.' Inu also showcased his support for the code hopping athlete on Instagram. 'Not enough words can express

"Let's not forget that women watch this stuff closely. Women watch the game. Women are fans. Women have a big say in whether their daughters or sons play NRL.

"Sport is a very competitive field when it comes to branding. So I think that the NRL needs to be on the front foot showing leadership on this. And using this opportunity to say very clearly that we do not stand by any form of violence against women."

Hayne spent his first night in prison last night and despite the verdict, some of his former teammates are still sticking by him.

Tony Williams and Krisnan Inu, who played with Hayne in his early days at Parramatta, have both taken to social media to express their thoughts on his rape conviction.

Williams has since had his contract with a North American Rugby League club, New York Freedom, ripped up. He has been criticised for not listening to the victim who the jury believed.

Professor Lumby says their posts, which doubt a jury conviction after the jury had heard all the evidence, speak to this idea of "bros sticking together" culture that remains prevalent in society.

Jarryd Hayne 's former Parramatta teammate Tony Williams has been sacked by his New York club after making "appalling" social media posts in response to Jarryd Hayne 's sentencing on Thursday. The ex-superstar of Australian sport will be jailed for at least three years and eight months without parole for sexually assaulting a woman in her Newcastle home in 2018. He was found not guilty of the more serious charges of aggravated sexual intercourse without consent, recklessly inflicting actual bodily harm. The convicted sex offender has launched an appeal against his conviction .

'As a society, we're having a reckoning'

Professor Lumby says that she has seen examples of the "Bro Code" thoughout sports.

"But also part of the problem in the NRL and in lots of male-dominated institutions, some of the quite elite, is the idea of bros sticking together and sticking up for each other.

"It's disgusting, frankly. And I think it's totally out of line with the emerging community standards around sexual assault.

"I think finally, as a society, we're having a reckoning. People are starting to listen to women. They're starting to understand the extent of sexual assault, and guys like him are going to be pulled right back into line eventually."

When asked, what message Hayne's sentencing sent to other NRL players, Professor Lumby replied: "Don't rape women. And if you do, the appropriate penalties will be applied."

But despite believing firmly that justice must be served for sexual assault, she was still surprised by the outcome.

"Frankly, this conviction shocked me," Professor Lumby told the ABC.

Williams sacked by club over hurtful Hayne post

  Williams sacked by club over hurtful Hayne post Tony Williams has been sacked by the New York Freedom over comments he made following Jarryd Hayne's sentencing.Tony Williams, who played alongside Hayne for the Eels in 2018 and went to school with him at Westfields Sports High, has been axed by the New York Freedom as a direct result of the comments he made, which included unsavoury remarks about the victim in the case.

"Why did it shock me? Not because a footballer raped a woman, because women are sexually assaulted right across all walks of life in classes, it's happening every day in this country.

US club axes ex-NRL player over Hayne post

  US club axes ex-NRL player over Hayne post Former NRL player Tony Williams has had his contract torn up by the New York Freedom over Instagram posts criticising Jarryd Hayne's prison sentence.Williams was one of two former teammates to take to Instagram on Thursday, claiming an "innocent brotherly" had been sent to jail.

"Why I'm shocked, is that less than 10 per cent of reported rapes result in a conviction, and 87 per cent of sexual assaults go unreported. There's very good data on that.

"And as far as I know, and I could be wrong here, but as far as I know, he's the first NRL footballer to be convicted of sexual assault. And we know from the newspapers, that there are allegations of sexual assault all the time, not just against NRL players, but against high-profile athletes.

"One of the big problems we have with women reporting rape is that they know that going through a trial is often like a second assault.

"And that is a direct result of the fact that in our community, we still have rape myth acceptance, which is the idea that unless someone's jumped out from behind a bush, and left physical injuries, it's not really rape, it's 'he said, she said'.

"There's still victim blaming, there's still a huge distrust of women who come forward.

"I think this woman who has gone to trial is a very brave woman."
