Jarryd Hayne 'unequivocally' denies rape allegation

The woman, whose identity is protected in court documents, made the allegation in a civil lawsuit filed against Hayne on Wednesday in Santa Clara County. She is accusing the NRL star of raping her in December 2015.

Hayne has denied any wrongdoing through his legal representative, Ramy Qutami.
