Australian rugby alliance player Jarryd Hayne has argued not blameworthy to charges that he assaulted a lady a year ago.
Mr Hayne, 31, is blamed for assaulting a 26-year-elderly person in Newcastle, north of Sydney, last September.
He was captured in December and accused of bothered rape and perpetrating real damage – offenses which convey a most extreme 20-year correctional facility term.
Mr Hayne is one of the game’s most prominent competitors.
He has twice won the National Rugby League’s player of the year grant, yet is as of now not attached to any club after he was dropped by the Parramatta Eels toward the finish of last season.
Mr Hayne officially entered his request at a court hearing on Thursday. He will stay on bail until a preliminary starts in May one year from now.
“It’s been a hard time for my family… yet equity will be served,” Mr Hayne told correspondents outside the court, as indicated by the Seven Network.
Police started researching in the wake of hearing charges that a lady had been ambushed by a man she met via web-based networking media.
Mr Hayne has played 11 Tests for Australia, helping them to win the 2013 World Cup.
In 2015, he quickly changed to American football with the San Francisco 49ers, before coming back to Australia the next year.
