Jarryd Hayne Lowers The Boom, Nails Final Pre-Season Game

Just between y’all and us, we think he’s done enough.

Jarryd Hayne‘s pre-season journey in the NFL is officially at an end, with a nervous 48-hour wait ahead of him before he finds out if he is to be an official San Francisco 49er for season 2016.
The Niners final pre-season game went down today at their home ground Levi’s Stadium against state rivals the San Diego Chargers.
The game was a final trial for the Niners to test their positional depth, which meant that once again Hayne saw considerable game time.
His first half was reasonably quiet – again plagued by the technical shortcomings that come with minimal experience, Hayne found himself getting stood up by the Chargers D at the line of scrimmage on carry plays. And, in fact, today was the first time Hayne had a punt return that was less than 10 yards.
In the second half, he found his footing, as did the Niners offensive line. Hayne rushed for a team and game-high 58 yards on 10 carries, with a longest run of 19 yards, managing to move the chains on more than one occasion.
His punt returning game caught fire too, with a bullocking 28 run.
But the highlight of the night came in the form of this 12 yard reception off a quick flick pass from rookie quarterback Dylan Thompson, in which Hayne lowered his shoulders and ABSOLUTELY FLATTENED a San Diego defender, much to the delight of his Niners teammates.

He might as well change his name to Pancake, because he flattens fools.

Hayne’s efforts helped the Niners hold on to outlast the Chargers in a tight 14-12 victory.
Sunday (Australian time) is now a very, very big day.
