He’s done it! Jarryd Hayne is officially part of the NFL, having been announced as part of the San Francisco 49ers official 53-man roster earlier this morning.

Hayne himself, clearly overflowing with happiness, confirmed the news on Twitter earlier today on Twitter: 

The NFL’s offiial account #HaynePlaneHereToStay, while his team, the 49ers, seemed pretty bloody stoked to welcome him, posting the below:

ComCast Sports Network Bay Area sports reporter Matt Maiocco also confirmed the news, saying:

“In a stunningly swift transition to a new sport in a new country, Hayne on Saturday won a spot on the 49ers’ initial 53-man roster. The deadline to roster cuts arrived at 1pm, and neither Hayne nor his agent, Jack Bechta, received any bad news. That means Hayne has made the team.”

Nicely done, mate. More to come on this story as it develops.
