Jarryd Hayne is to be investigated by the NRL’s integrity unit after being filmed handing an accused Hells Angels bikie enforcer a $5000 wad of cash.
News Corp Australia has obtained footage of the Gold Coast star joy-riding around the glitter strip with bikie and former Titans under-20 player Chris Bloomfield after his side’s finals loss to Brisbane on Friday night.
“Haynsey just gave me five grand,” the alleged bikie standover man says grinning to the camera while holding up a giant wad of cash.
Hayne responds by shrugging his shoulders and saying: “Cash money fam, cash money. Give me a f … ing cigarette.”
The Titans have confirmed they have been in contact with the NRL’s integrity unit over the footage, which also includes St George Illawarra-bound winger Nene MacDonald.
“The Gold Coast Titans and the NRL Integrity Unit have been made aware of a video that is circulating which features Titans player Jarryd Hayne and, briefly, Nene Macdonald,” the club said in a statement on Tuesday.
“We are liaising with the Integrity Unit and the players over the matter and have no further comment until those discussions are completed.”
NRL sources reportedly confirmed Hayne has been previously warned by the Integrity Unit about associating with known and accused criminals.
Bloomfield is facing extortion charges at Southport Magistrate Court and said to be a Hells Angels bikie, according to detectives from Queensland’s Taskforce Maxima.
The images come after the NRL has repeatedly warned players this year not to consort with bikies and known and accused criminals.
