Hayne granted relaxed bail conditions

The NSW District Court has ordered former Fiji Bati and NRL star Jarryd Hayne to only report to the police station once a week.
 
Foxsports.com.au reports that Hayne was granted more relaxed bail conditions as opposed to reporting thrice a week.
 
Hayne is currently facing a year-long wait for his third sexual assault trial after a judge refused his application for the proceedings to be held in Newcastle.
 
The reviewed conditions will require Hayne to report to Merrylands Police Station each Friday between the hours of 5am and 10pm.
 
Last year, a jury found the former Dally-M winner guilty of sexually assaulting a woman at her Newcastle home on NRL grand final night in 2018.
 
He has consistently denied the allegations and faced a jury twice over the allegations and was handed five years and nine months sentence.
 
Earlier this year, the Court of Appeal quashed the conviction and he walked free of jail on February 15.
 
In March, the Director of Public Prosecutions announced they would elect to try Hayne a third time.
 
The trial is set to be held at Sydney's Downing Centre District Court starting on March 6 next year.
