Jarryd Hayne: State of Origin:
Unfortunately for New South Wales, injury grounded the Hayne Plane just as he was looking to take flight in the 2013 State of Origin series.
Scoring the opening try of the series off a sublime inside ball from Luke Lewis, Hayne displayed all the talents that we've come to know from the Eels custodian in a sizzling performance in his preferred position of fullback.
Although he was unable to take the field in the final two games of the series, you can expect Hayne to feature heavily in the Blues preparations for 2014.
State of Origin Stats:
All Runs: 16
All Run Metres: 188
Line Breaks: 1
Missed Tackles: 0
Despite missing a large portion of the season due to injury, Hayne was still a standout performer in a disappointing year for the Eels.
Having played only 15 games in the Blue and Gold in 2013, Hayne still ran for an average of 132 meters per game and his eight tries placed him in the top-five try-scorers for fullbacks.
