Hayne's bail conditions relaxed

Former Fiji Bati and NRL star Jarryd Hayne's bail conditions were relaxed by Judge Timothy Gartelmann on Friday.
 
This is after defence solicitor Lauren MacDougall faced court on behalf of the former footy star, changing his bail conditions so he no longer had to report to Police.
 
Hayne did not appear in Sydney's Downing Centre District Court on Friday as his lawyer applied to have the conditions changed ahead of a long wait to face a jury.
 
Up until April, he was required to report to Merrylands Police Station three times a week, where it was relaxed to just once.
 
Judge Timothy Gartelmann on Friday granted Lauren McDougall's application, which was unopposed by the crown.
 
Hayne has consistently denied the allegations.
 
In March, the Director of Public Prosecutions announced it 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.
 
However, Hayne had been active on social media in the lead-up to the court matter, posting a cheeky Instagram post with his wife Amellia Bonnici.
 
Bonnici shared a photo which revealed the former Parramatta Eels fullback had eaten several heart-shaped chocolates behind her back.
