If it can legally be mentioned, in a nutshell what is he alleged to have said? Or actually did say?

Words to the effect of blaming the victim for ruining Haynes life - the implication being that Hayne didn't do what he is accused and convicted of doing.

Has he said this on Twitter? Because I’ve just had a look at his account to see what had been said but his last tweet is in relation to Savelio’s racist abuse last weekend, so if it was a Tweet, he’s deleted it already.

Ok thanks. I didn’t read up on this case much but he seemed guilty to me based on the bit I read. But then I aren’t on the jury.

Instagram, dunno if he's deleted it now,  or if it's expired,  he's now put a slightly confusing contrary 'I've got females in my family, don't get this confused message,  followed by him reposting similar from his missus.

Appalling is right. 

Is it appalling? Or is typical Mail outrage?

Only 2 people know what happened on that night. Reading the accounts and on the balance of probability, i'm inclined to side with the verdict but plenty of people have been wrongly convicted before.

I have no issues with them showing support to Hayne, however calling out the alleged victim is callous and has no place, particularly when they weren't present so have no idea what went on

If players want to show their support for a former colleague who has been convicted of rape then that is their prerogative.  Personally, I wouldn't as if one of my friends or colleagues was convicted of rape all bets would be off as I wouldn't want anything to do with them.

But using phrases like 'so called victim' is appalling.  This women has been through the ordeal of rape, then a trial and then being spat on when she left the courtroom.  Now she has to put up with people questioning her honesty on social media.

I have to say, this has not been a great week for British Rugby League as it is exposing the cultural core that we have and it is not a good look.

Yes, it's appalling - it's absolutely abhorent to blame the victim of a serious crime for being the victim.

He was convicted in a criminal court - so beyond all reasonable doubt. 

Obviously it's their perogative to support their mate but I think it says a lot about their character.

He can support his mate and his family if he wants to . I separate that from his choice of words around the victim , that was wrong . No I don’t think he should be sacked

Surely, he’s breached Rugby League’s code of conduct and their social media “respect” campaign, as Ed Barber did with his tweets last summer? Barber was fined, not banned for any games, I would expect something similar and maybe some education for Inu.

Yes.

But they won't. 

No though they wont. Not until the TRL woke claque instructs them to do so, anyway.

You know what, I try not to be provocative on here and appreciate everyone's views but I have had enough.

We are supposed to be a family sport aren't we... at least that is what I was told when I was growing up sitting on the walls of Central Park watching rugby in the 1980's.

Well, opposing the use of racist language and blaming the victims of rape is not being woke, it is just being a decent human being. 

You can stand where you stand and I will stand where I stand, and I am happy to be on this side.

I’m not a Daily Mail reader but it’s not like outrage is confined to them tbf, it’s everywhere these days.

Yeah that's right, it's the fault of 'the mail'. 😏

Let's assume Hayne is completely innocent, there are better ways of supporting him and saying you believe a miscarriage of justice has occured than ranting and accusing the other party of lying.

Can I come and stand with you, mate? Some very odd takes on a few matters on these boards over the past week. Some very predictable, others i'm genuinely shocked by.
