Jayden's got the arms for the job, packing on biceps to beat
It's all about the crack as Jayden Hayward takes a tumble
Hayward changes teams as much as he changes his facial hair and his haircuts. Having played for various Kiwi and Aussie teams, he transferred to Benetton Rugby in Italy in 2014 and has remained there since.
Tatts and a beard are the order fo the day as Jayden sports his Italian top
Well clearly the Italian way of life suits Jayden as he obtained citizenship in 2017. He lives in Trevison in Northern Italy with his family including wife Ana. He had to hunker down with them at their home when the pandemic hit so it must have been tough when his homeland was so Covid free.
Haywards short shorts and thick thighs make him perfect rugby candy
Whether you're a fan of a big beard or not, you're a fan of his
One thing is for sure, trading his life in New Zealand for the Italian dream has kept him trim and his muscles taught. Having big thick thighs is a must for rugby players the world over and having some short shorts to show them off in is a must!
