Wanting to make a mark for himself, Jarryd Hayne the star of rugby from Australia is going to do exactly the same with 49ers which he had announced in the news conference. He said that it is very important to have the chips in proper position and he does not have any idea of the backup.
Later in the week he is supposed to be signing a contract with the team. According to Hayne a guarantee of $100,000 has been provided to him. The figure is interesting for him as he said that he has never got a chance to play. For the various NFL teams he had worked which also include 49ers. He had met the coach earlier and Tomsula in the course of the time had worked with Hayne for an extended period of time.
Lawrence Okoye who had never played football but rugby had joined the rugby team due to the influence of Tomsula and similarly he is the reason for the joining of Hayne as well. Continue reading ‘Jarryd Hayne from Australia joins 49ersrgb’

Australian rugby squad seems to be quite a disgraceful state even when they are just ten months away from upcoming Rugby world Cup 2015.
The Wallabies seem to be pacing backwards only at momentous rate and the team just experienced their worst possible European Tour championship in almost 10 years, having accomplished no more than a single victory out of 4. Back home, the situation is even weaker as what is discovered from the recent meet between head honchos of Aussie Rugby Union (Bill Pulver & Michael Hawker) and representatives of Sydney Rugby Union Board, New South Wales Country & Shute Shield Club of Sydney. Hawker & Pulver cast a terribly morbid view on the finances of Aussie Rugby during the 2-hour meet and even warned of bankruptcy concerns by 2016.
A fair share of sources who gathered at the meet remarked that head honchos mentioned about the bankruptcy threat at least 10-12 times throughout the meeting. They also emphasized on the significance of sharing the pain & responsibility evenly by everybody across the Aussie rugby community.
At SRU’s instigation, Hawker & Pulver, who for several months were under severe criticism for their inefficient administration of Australian rugby, attended the meet to garner backup for their scheme that called the grassroots to come up with revenue through player levy. But the very ARU plea did not work. In fact, the meet was said that ARU is about to face terrible “economic disaster” by 2016 in case the clubs didn’t extend backing for the national funding program.
According to the proposed fiscal model from ARU, each of the rugby players in the Australian team would have to submit individual registration subscription & insurance levy. The Union have even decided on the fee structure to be followed for each level of players.

Each and every person associated with Northampton Saints- directors, management, staff and the players- felt really sad when they got to know that their youngest fan, Luis Ghaut passed away on the 23rd of September, 2014. This young boy had successfully inspired many people who are a part of Northampton Saints.
Luis was suffering from a very rare kind of bone cancer called the Osteosarcoma and his family had approached Northampton Saints in order to get support for the awareness and fundraising activities associated with Osteosarcoma. This is how Luis Ghaut became a known face for Northampton Saints.
This young boy from Upton used to attend the training sessions of the rugby team and some of the players had become extremely close to him and his family members.
Christian Day said that Luis was just like a comrade and a fellow player. He never got upset about anything. Day was heartbroken to hear the news about Luis’s death.
Luis had actually become the mascot for Northampton Saints in the month of May during the 2014 Aviva Premiership finals against Saracens. This was something extraordinary and it proved the determination of the boy because Luis had undergone surgery and chemotherapy few days before the Premiership finals.
Tom Wood had commented after the Premiership finals on the bravery of the boy and how it had motivated the Saints in every possible manner.
Northampton Saints extended their deepest condolences and regrets to Luis’s relatives and friends.
At the home match of the round 6 of the Aviva Premiership which is going to be played against Sale Sharks, Northampton Saints are going to pay tribute to the brave boy.
Lee Dickson said that Luis Ghaut was a part of the Northampton Saints’ family. The entire Premiership season will now be dedicated to Luis and they are going to do everything for this little man only.
