His story has captured the imagination of the Australian public and thankfully, there are a number of way to live stream, watch on TV and follow Jarryd Hayne and the San Francisco 49ers online.

After a roller-coaster year, the Australian made the 53-man roster for the San Francisco 49ers 2015 season.

The 27-year-old boy from Minto shocked the entire country when he announced he was leaving rugby league to try to earn a contract in the ruthlessly competitive National Football League.

The odds were thoroughly stacked against him but piece by piece, Hayne made his childhood dream a reality. He got faster, stronger and impressed at pro-testing day before winning a rookie contract with the 49ers.

He then showed his evasive skills, vision and immense talent in open space during the four preseason games to earn a spot in the final squad.
