When he's done strutting his stuff for Fiji in the Rugby Sevens, we may see Jarryd Hayne in Super Rugby.

Channel Nine's Danny Weidler reported the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) has had more than one meeting with the 28-year-old's management in the past fortnight to try and gauge his interest in playing the 15-a-side game for a Super Rugby franchise.

Hayne represented NSW and Australia in rugby league before trying his hand at American football with the San Francisco 49ers. He then spectacularly quit the NFL earlier this year to announce he would be chasing another dream to win gold at the Rio Olympics with the Fiji Rugby Sevens team.

Hayne had little impact in his Sevens debut at the final World Series event in London, and is far from certain to be named in Fiji's final 13-man Olympic squad to go to Brazil. The South Pacific nation claimed the World Series - their second in a row - and is heading to the Olympics as the gold medal favourite.

However, if Hayne was to take up an option with the ARU and play for one of the five Australian Super Rugby franchises, his eligibility for the Wallabies would be up in the air given he has already represented Fiji in the seven-a-side format.

There's been plenty of speculation as to what Hayne's future holds after his Sevens adventure, with most predicting a return to the NRL with either the Sydney Roosters or his former club Parramatta.

The ex-Eel was reportedly on a flight back to Sydney from Fiji last night alongside winger Semi Radradra.

Fiji Rugby Sevens team manager Rob Kauvesi confirmed the former San Francisco 49ers NFL player had been given permission to take a short break.

"He is heading home to visit his family and will be back on Monday," Kauvesi told The Daily Telegraph.

Radradra, meanwhile, has been in the country of his birth spending time with his family for nearly two weeks after Parramatta granted him leave.

He is set to train with the western Sydney club today in its final session before Saturday's game against the Sharks.
