Record-setting Hayne stars in Kangaroos big win

Dyldam Parramatta Eels captain and Australian Kangaroos representative Jarryd Hayne has outdone himself today, scoring four tries in their 62-0 win over the USA Tomahawks!


Hayne says hes thrilled to have equalled the record of most tries scored in a Test match, alongside Brett Morris who also scored four today.


It was special, B-Moz getting four in the first half, and he was definitely looking for that fifth - but it wasnt to be, Hayne joked.


[But for me] to score late in the second half off a great ball from Corey Parker was great.


Playing away from his preferred position of fullback in at right centre, Hayne says he adapted well and made it his own.


I found it good playing at right centre, its obviously something I havent played for awhile but to have Cooper Cronk and Sam Thaiday there beside me was good and I thought we did a good job, he said.


Its something Im comfortable with, and didnt feel out of my depth.


With plenty of competition for spots in the Australian side now its the business end of the tournament, Haynesy admits he wasnt expecting to be selected.


I was a bit surprised actually to get the nod, so [Tim Sheens] came up to me and said I was going to have a chance at right centre and get the opportunity, and its nice to have the chance and to get a good win.


Out of all of his four tries, Hayne says its tough to pick the most memorable.


Everytime I put the ball down I had someone jump on me or poke me in the eye or have someone hit me as i was scoring, so they werent very pretty tries!


But I think the first off [Greg Inglis] who set me up twice, and I think Corey Parkers one at the end was pretty special.


I didnt know he was going to give it to me, but a flick pass no-look was a bit special, and he celebrated then!
