But asked about Hayne's chances of getting another NRL deal, Greenberg said: "Jarryd has got issues to deal with and they have got nothing to do with rugby league at the moment".

He left the Eels to play American football in 2015 with the San Francisco 49ers but returned to Australia the following year.

The woman, who says she suffered injuries in the alleged September 30 incident, was interviewed by the National Rugby League's integrity unit before the matter was referred to police.

The 30-year-old is not to contact or attempt to contact the victim or any witnesses by any means whatsoever including electronic means, social media platforms or through any third party.

Hayne, a two-time Dally M Medallist, is one of the biggest names in the NRL and had a magical run to help the Eels to the 2009 grand final.

About three hours later Hayne was charged with aggravated sexual assault - inflict actual bodily harm which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

However that one-year stay was plagued with drama, with Hayne still defending a civil court rape case made against him while living in the United States - an accusation he has long vehemently denied.
