NRL star Jarryd Hayne accused of rape in the United States

US attorney John Clune to represent alleged victim in Jarryd Hayne civil rape suit

Parramatta Eels recruit Jarryd Hayne has strongly denied sexually assaulting a woman in 2015 during his time at the San Francisco 49ers after a civil suit was filed against him.

Civil court documents filed in a Californian court claim "Ms V" was highly intoxicated on the night the alleged incident occurred.

The civil suit, lodged in the Santa Clara County court on Tuesday, alleges the rugby league star engaged in non-consensual sexual intercourse with a woman in December 2015. AAP understands it's now with local police. She says the woke the next day naked in a pool of blood and still with sharp vaginal pains.

The woman reported the alleged crime to police in May 2016 but the District Attorney's Office reviewed the case and rejected it in October on the grounds of insufficient evidence.

In the statement of complaint, the plaintiff says she didn't immediately report the incident to authorities because she feared being discredited or blamed. He then admitted they had "hooked up".

"The victim was a young impressionable woman out with friends in a location and environment she thought she could trust only to find that Mr. Hayne used her level of intoxication and his physical stature to deprive her of the ability to make a personal decision about whether or not she wanted to have sex", Liberty told the Mercury-News.

The woman is seeking monetary compensation for "emotional pain, anguish and severe distress".

Hayne's long-time manager Wayne Beavis told The Daily Telegraph he was unaware of the claims on Wednesday.

"As with any legal matter, it is important that we follow due process and ensure that we review all relevant information available, including giving Jarryd the opportunity to respond", he said. The fact that Hayne is at the centre of a civil action rather than a criminal one leaves the NRL in a hard position, no matter the outcome in a U.S. court, and officially all League Central has said publicly is that it is monitoring the situation.

The NRL said the organisation's integrity unit would monitor Hayne's case.

A San Francisco 49ers spokesman said "this is the first we have heard of this matter and the alarming allegation regarding a former employee".
