Hayne thanks fans

Saturday, December 02, 2017

Update: 6:38PM RUGBY League star Jarryd Hayne arrived into the country last night to join the rest of the Vodafone Fiji Bati members celebrate their achievement at the Rugby League World Cup in Suva today.

Hayne who is on holiday right now said it was very important to come back to Fiji to not only thank the fans who have supported the boys, but to also spend time with his teammates before they part ways.

"It's very important to come back and thank the fans, so I had to delay my holiday to come back and say thanks to everyone. It's been special, what we're able to achieve  and I wanted to see the boys for the last time too," he said.

"We probably won't be together again for a while. We came back to have  fun and that's what it's all about," he said.

"It's been an amazing tournament. We didn't really get to celebrate the New Zealand win so the next couple of days I'm sure we will."
