Jarryd Hayne returns to the National Rugby League

The former Parramatta Eels star returned to Australia after a season with the San Francisco 49ers in the National Football League, as well as a short stint with Fiji's Rugby Sevens squad that ended with him missing out on Olympics selection.

The enormous salary offered by the Gold Coast surely played a significant role, but the fact that Hayne's signing with the Titans allows him to return to the field immediately seems to have underpinned his decision.

The former NRL superstar could possibly play as soon as Sunday's match against the Warriors, given he has not been registered with another club this season.

"I was put in this situation, I had never thought of playing for another club".

It was only December a year ago when James Roberts left the Gold Coast because a staff member forged the centre's signature.

"The environment at the Titans, the board strength and the playing group were huge attractions for me", Hayne said.

With Hayne in their side, the seventh-placed Titans would be well placed to make a genuine assault on the premiership.

"I'm leaving knowing that I have signed a 'lifetime agreement" with the Eels, so if I return to the NRL, it will be to Parramatta.' Hayne said in 2014.

Hayne stunned the league world today by announcing he would join the Titans for the remainder of this year and the 2017 and 2018 seasons on a deal worth $1.2 million per season.

In one of the more intriguing subplots of Hayne's signing with the emerging NRL outfit, the Titans shape as one of the candidates for Parramatta's Top End adventure after the pair clashed in the Northern Territory earlier this year.

And Eels fans have wasted no time to let their former star know what they think of him turning his back on the club in a year that everything that could go wrong has.

News of Hayne's signing with the Gold Coast is a massive blow to Parramatta, who were banking on his return next season.

The 28-year-old left the club at the end of 2014 in a bid to play in the NFL.

As one of the biggest names in Australian sport, Hayne's name in itself will bring crowds to the Gold Coast, which is something they have been severely struggling with in recent years.

Players such as Chris McQueen, David Shillington, Konrad Hurrell, Nathan Peats and now Jarryd Hayne have hit the holiday strip, not to mention the rise of young prodigy, Ashley Taylor.
