This weekend's Auckland Nines will see Gold Coast Titans star Jarryd Hayne once again don the No.38 jersey.

Approached by promoters of the event to wear the number he made famous at the San Francisco 49ers after a spectacular switch from NRL to NFL, Haynewas all too happy to comply.

First given the shirt number when at just 17 he made the Parramatta Eels pre-season squad, the two digits still mean a lot to the now 28-year-old.

"The start of my NRL career I got the gear No.38, the start of my NFL career I got the gear No.38 and they (Auckland Nine promoters Duco Events)just asked if I wanted to wear it and I was fine with it," Hayne told NRL.com.

"It's just a journey, a kid just having fun from Campbelltown, that's what it represents for me."
