Jarryd Hayne’s NFL experiment is over.

The former rugby league star has quit the San Fransisco 49ers so he can go to the Olympics with the Fiji rugby sevens.

‘I am retiring from the NFL because the Fiji Rugby Sevens team reached out to me about the opportunity to join the team for the upcoming Olympics, and I simply could not pass that chance up,’ Hayne said in a statement.

‘The Olympics has been something I have admired since I was a little boy, and it is an opportunity I feel very similar to me joining the NFL.’
