    Nothing was said about this by the commentators and no replays shown (unlike Ballin's supposed butt grabbing a few weeks ago), but have a look at the tape of Eels vs Cowboys, when the Cowboys are coming back and Hayne is getting frustrated.

    At least twice when he is returning a kick he does this little stutter and then:

    1. Lifts his elbow into the head of the chasing player.
    2. Leans his upper body back and then strikes forward, almost headbutting the tackler.

    Haynes was brilliant in the first half, could have played himself into an origin jumper. But his second half was the sort of lazy, petulant, selfish rubbish that stains his career.

    There are plenty of stains around Haynes career....mostly in the Channel 9 commentators' underpants. The guy is a myth.

    he threw some beautiful balls tonight and looked dangerous but he seems to fade in and out of games.could be a champion but just doesnt have the consistency.give him forans heart and he would be a world beater.will definately be the fullback for NSW for better or for worse.dugans defence tonight finished him and gordon is injured.
