WITH a taxi waiting for him outside a home at Fletcher, an intoxicated Jarryd Hayne, on his way home from a two-day bucks party in Newcastle, is accused of twice raping a woman, causing her genitalia to bleed.
Mr Hayne, now 32, the former NRL star, faced the second day of a trial in Newcastle District Court on Tuesday.
He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual intercourse without consent and inflict actual bodily harm.
During his opening address, Crown prosecutor Brian Costello told the jury Mr Hayne had taken a taxi to the woman's house at Fletcher about 9pm on September 30, 2018, the night of the NRL grand final.
He told the taxi driver to wait outside, knocked on the door and went straight into the alleged victim's bedroom, Mr Costello said.
Over the next 45 minutes, before Mr Hayne got back in the taxi and headed home to Sydney, he is accused of "forcefully" kissing the woman on her bed, taking off her pants and engaging in two sexual acts that left blood on her bed and Mr Hayne's face, Mr Costello told the jury.
Mr Costello said crucial evidence in the trial will include text message exchanges between the woman and Mr Hayne in the aftermath of the alleged sexual assault.
"I am hurting so much," the woman is alleged to have texted Mr Hayne.
"I know I have talked about sex and stuff so much but I didn't want to do that after knowing the taxi was waiting for you. "I thought you would have at least stayed. "I'm hurting really badly. I told my mum you got a nose bleed. But I am sitting in my room crying because I feel so weird."
Mr Hayne is alleged to have replied: "Go doctor tomorrow".
During his opening address, defence barrister Phillip Boulten, SC, said there were two sides to what happened in the woman's bedroom.
"He is not guilty of either of the two charges," Mr Boulten said. "What happened in that bedroom was entirely consensual. The complainant consented to what happened even after she became unhappy about the taxi being present. She was quite prepared to engage in sexual activity with Jarryd Hayne."
More to come.
