Here, RUCK looks at five players who fell foul of the law and the events that occurred in their lives that sent them into prison.
#1. Jarryd Hayne (Fiji Sevens)
Former Fiji Sevens player Hayne was jailed for five years and nine months for sexual assault back in May 2021.
Last March, a jury found 33-year-old Hayne guilty of attacking a 26-year-old woman in her home in 2018.
He will have to serve a minimum of three years and eight months before being eligible for parole.
