Jarryd Hayne has met with the NRL integrity unit after video emerged of him with an alleged bikie on the Gold Coast.
Hayne was at the Titans’ NRL club headquarters on Wednesday morning to speak with officials in the wake of the controversial footage.
The video appeared on social media showing Hayne with alleged bikie and former Titans under 20 player Chris Bloomfield at a player’s home and then in a vehicle together during Gold Coast end of season drinks this month.
Hayne has already put out a statement claiming he had not met Bloomfield – who is facing court over extortion allegations – before bumping into him during the Titans’ break up drinks.
However, the NRL integrity unit launched the probe amid concerns criminals were infiltrating the game following other incidents involving players.
Cronulla’s Andrew Fifita was warned for his apparent support of convicted one-punch killer Kieran Loveridge while Corey Norman, Junior Paulo and James Segeyaro were photographed drinking with convicted criminals.
“The Gold Coast Titans can confirm that NRL integrity unit representatives today met with Jarryd Hayne as they previously indicated they intended to do, as part of their normal follow-up to the media reports of last week,” a Titans statement said.
An NRL official said talks with Hayne were “ongoing”.
