Jarryd Hayne has told a court he "never said her mind changed" when referring to a woman who has accused him of raping her in the Hunter two years ago.
And the former NRL star has denied telling "various lies" under oath to suit different pieces of evidence.
Hayne, 32, faced the sixth day of a trial in Newcastle District Court on Tuesday over two counts of aggravated sexual intercourse without consent recklessly inflicting actual bodily harm. He has pleaded not guilty.
It comes after a woman - who cannot be named - accused Hayne of assaulting her using his finger and mouth at Fletcher on the night of the 2018 NRL Grand Final. The woman was left bleeding from her vagina.
During a tense cross-examination on Tuesday, Crown prosecutor Brian Costello took Mr Hayne through the evidence he had given in recent days - which included Hayne saying he knew the woman did not want to have sex with him after seeing a taxi waiting outside on the night of the alleged incident.
Mr Costello outlined Hayne's version of events - that he arrived, the woman became "filthy" about the waiting taxi, Hayne sang some of his "go-to" songs in the woman's bedroom, he went outside to speak with the taxi driver, he returned to the woman's bedroom and began looking at the grand final score, he then watched the final minutes of the game with her mother before he returned to the woman's room where the sexual activity took place.
"So your solution to her being upset about the taxi waiting out the front is to try to have sex with her?" Mr Costello asked.
"I don't understand that," Hayne responded.
Mr Costello asked Hayne what had changed the woman's mind about sex that night.
"What do you mean by change?" Hayne said.
"I never said her mind changed."
The exchange came after Mr Costello asked whether Hayne was "drawing a distinction between sex involving a penis and a vagina and pretty much everything else" - Hayne replied: "yes".
"Why did you try to initiate sexual activity?" Mr Costello asked.
"I just did, I guess," Hayne said.
"She already told you she didn't want it [sex]," Mr Costello asked.
"Yes," Hayne replied.
Mr Costello played a short video showing blood at the head of the woman's bed, putting it to Hayne that the woman was retreating as he was performing oral sex on her - Hayne denied this.
Hayne was also questioned about the level of force he had used while using his finger to stimulate the woman, but the question caused confusion for the former Eels fullback.
Mr Costello asked whether he had been soft, gentle, hard or rough when Hayne kept responding to the question of force by saying that he had moved his hand slow at first then fast.
The question was repeated several times to Hayne, who could not offer a different answer until he finally responded: "I didn't have a radar that night, sorry".
Mr Costello asked Hayne whether he was in a hurry to engage in sexual activity because the taxi had been waiting in front of the house - Hayne said he "probably" was not in a rush but he wanted to "hook up" with the woman.
"Mr Hayne, I'm going to suggest to you you just pulled her pants straight off her," Mr Costello said.
"I didn't do that," Hayne responded.
"I'm going to suggest to you [the woman] was telling you 'no' and telling you 'stop'," Mr Costello said.
"No, she didn't do that," Hayne said.
Mr Costello put it to Hayne that he had "made up various lies" under oath.
Hayne denied that he changed his version of events after hearing evidence from a medical expert last week.
The court heard that Hayne had said in a tapped phone call in the weeks after the alleged incident that he believed his fingernail made the woman bleed, but in evidence during the trial he said it was his finger.
Mr Costello also outlined the timeline of Hayne's version of events, putting it to him that he did not go back into the woman's bedroom between speaking with the taxi driver and going into the lounge room to watch the grand final with her mother.
"What I'm suggesting is you're changing your account as time goes by to fit bits of evidence you need to deal with," Mr Costello said.
"No, that's not true," Hayne said.
The court heard that Hayne had been drinking alcohol for a day and a half with little sleep by the time he visited the woman and that he remembered few details about the weekend in question but could recount the events of the Sunday night, when the alleged incident took place.
"Mr Hayne, I'm going to suggest to you that you have very little detailed recollection of what you did on the Sunday night," Mr Costello said.
"I disagree," Hayne said.
When asked why he was angry about messages he received from the woman in mid-November, 2018, Mr Costello said: "you were fuming because she was about to report you to the police and the NRL".
"I was fuming because she's full of shit," Hayne said.
The trial continues.
