Ex-rugby league star fumbles first NFL play

Watch the moment former rugby league star and rookie running back Jarryd Hayne fumbles the first play of his NFL debut for San Francisco 49ers.

The former Australia and Parramatta Eels full-back, 27, recovered from the mistake to help his new side to a 20-3 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

The 49ers chose Hayne for their squad earlier this month but cut former British discus thrower Lawrence Okoye from their roster, who was later picked up by Arizona Cardinals.
