Australia's 'ton of talent' leaves Hayne eyeing Fiji World Cup call

Jarryd Hayne has revealed he is most likely to represent Fiji in the Rugby League World Cup due to the "ton of talent" Australia head coach Mal Meninga can call upon.

Despite having already debuted for Australia, Hayne played for Fiji in the 2008 World Cup, later returning to the Kangaroos fold.  

The Gold Coast Titans full-back is eager for another chance to showcase his talents in a World Cup and gave a strong indication that he will be donning a Fiji shirt again for a tournament, which will be staged in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea this year.

"It's definitely something that I look forward to. It's been great for me to play for Australia and Fiji, it's been awesome," said the New South Wales State of Origin representative, whose father is Fijian.

"Australia has got a ton of talent, a lot of guys younger than me. It's obviously up to the coach but for me I'm probably looking forward to playing with Fiji at the moment, knowing how much talent and depth Australia's got."

Hayne believes he nearly back to his best after resuming his rugby league career last year following a spell in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers.

"I think I'm almost there," said Hayne.

"You definitely do notice it, the way you move and the way you get into games and get into the flow of games and as the season has progressed and the more I've played, the better I've felt out there, the more I've been able to have a bit more of an input into the game."
