Hardcore, bandwaggoners turn out for Super Bowl in Hayne's hometown

Australian NFL fans watch the telecast of the NFL Super Bowl on a large screen at the Western Suburbs Leagues Club in Leumeah, located west of Sydney, AustraliaBy Nick Mulvenney CAMPBELLTOWN, Australia (Reuters) - The numbers were modest and the hour a lot less sociable than in California but Australian NFL fans had themselves a proper Super Bowl party in the hometown of San Francisco 49ers punt returner Jarryd Hayne on Monday. Australia has traditionally had one of the highest viewing figures pro rata for the Super Bowl outside the United States with some 200,000 out of a population of 23 million tuning in for the 2014 showpiece. The NFL received huge exposure Down Under last year when Hayne made the audacious decision to cut short his career as one of the biggest stars in the country's National Rugby League (NRL) and head stateside to play for the 49ers.
