Former Fiji Bati representative Jarryd Hayne will not face a fourth trial over allegations he sexually assaulted a woman in her home in 2018.

Hayne had his convictions overturned on appeal earlier this month and was released from prison after bailing.

He was found guilty in May last year, marking the third time he has been tried for the incident, and the second time he has been found guilty.

According to media reports in Australia, the New South Wales Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions said it reached its decision after “carefully considering the many competing factors” in relation to the public interest in the case.

Hayne represented the Bati at the 2008 and 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
