Hayne set to be axed

Errant Parramatta Eels player Jarryd Hayne is set to be dumped for the opening NRL match against the Bulldogs after his involvement in a shooting incident in Kings Cross.

The club is expected to announce their decision on Thursday after a meeting with coach Michael Hagan, the players' leadership group and management.

Fringe first graders Weller Hauraki and Junior Paulo - who were drinking with the Kangaroo star before the early morning incident - are also expected to be axed.

All three players are understood to be facing fines.

The decision to stand down the players comes as no surprise after a furious Hagan told reporters how disappointed he was earlier in the day.

"I think the team, the football club, the fans and the sponsors have been let down ... fans are sick of reading about it and hearing about it and I think it's time players took some responsibility for what they do," Hagan said.

"You can't baby sit them 24 hours a day."
