Hayne's not on our agenda, Team GWS says

Despite reports of a five-year offer worth $7.5 million, the AFL's Team GWS say they aren't pursuing Parramatta's rugby league superstar Jarryd Hayne.

Hayne is contracted to Parramatta for the 2010 season and the Eels are keen to lock in a new four-year deal.

But the NRL has been buzzing with talk that Hayne could join the Kevin Sheedy-coached Team GWS in 2012, following in the footsteps of ex-Brisbane Bronco Karmichael Hunt who will play for Gold Coast in their AFL debut season in 2011.

In fact Hayne, who was named rugby league's international player of the year at a gala dinner in the English city of Leeds earlier this month, is so low on the AFL's "hit-list" that the spelling of his name is still open to debate.

"Team GWS wishes to clarify that, contrary to a number of recent media reports, it has not made any offer to Jarred (sic) Hayne," Team GWS said on Friday in a statement.

"Team GWS remains committed to providing opportunities for youth in Greater Western Sydney to represent their team in the AFL National Competition from 2012."
