Dragons fans' savage reaction to Jarryd Hayne signing reports

Jarryd Hayne could fall into St George Illawarra’s lap if Parramatta fail to re-sign him.

The Dragons believe they can offer a $500,000 a year deal to the former NSW and Australia outside back for next season, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The cross-code star revealed last week he was still waiting for a contract two weeks out from the Eels returning to training, as they reportedly attempt to off-load several big-name players to make room for him.

However news of the Dragons’ interest in Hayne has not been met well by fans.

Do the Eels still want him?

Earlier this week Parramatta told Hayne they still want him to be at the Eels next year.

Off-contract Hayne took to social media over the weekend to claim he was still waiting on an offer from Parramatta, before the club returns to pre-season training at the start of next month.

Responding to fans questions on Twitter, Hayne reiterated his desire to bring a premiership to the Eels but insisted he was being honest in his claims he was yet to receive an offer to stay.

“5 weeks still waiting for a contract??” Hayne tweeted in reply to a plea from a fan for the club to re-sign him on Friday night.

Eels chief executive Bernie Gurr confirmed to AAP on Monday they were still talking to the 31-year-old about a new deal, and they had told him they wanted him at Parramatta.

The two-time Dally M medallist’s tweets come after he claimed earlier this year he did not want to make a decision on his future until the end of the season.

At the time Hayne also avoided questions over a potential move to the 15-man game with Fiji, before the Rugby World Cup at the end of next year.
