Rugby league star Jarryd Hayne has reported for bail after being charged with aggravated sexual assault of a woman in the New South Wales Hunter region.

"Detectives from the child abuse and sex crimes squad arrested a 30-year-old man at Ryde Police Station just after 4:00pm today", a police spokeswoman told AFP without naming the fullback. Following an interview with detectives the football star was charged with one charge of aggravated sexual assault.

The charge carries a maximum 20-year jail term if Hayne is convicted.

Jarryd Hayne presented himself to police on Monday afternoon.

Jarryd Hayne has not spoken publicly about the allegations.

The woman became intoxicated, and Hayne allegedly brought her back to his apartment, where he raped her.

His alleged victim reportedly claims to have suffered injuries during a sexual encounter with Hayne in the NSW Hunter Valley on the night of the NRL Grand Final.

An investigation into the incident was launched after the woman was interviewed by the NRL Integrity Unit, and the matter was passed on to police. Over the weekend, Hayne hired Salim Mehajer's former lawyer Ramy Qutami.

The PlayStation VR is one of the most well-received virtual reality headsets, and it's reached its lowest price point so far. The Sony Black Friday discounts run from now until November 26 on games, and until December 2 on PlayStation VR bundles.

10 News First understands investigators on the case wanted him to be locked up overnight and brought before a Magistrate on Tuesday.

Hayne's representative Wayne Beavis opted not to comment when contacted by AAP after the allegations arose.

The playmaker is known as a prolific pointscorer, with 121 tries in 214 NRL games.

It is the second sexual assault allegation levelled at the embattled rugby league player, who is now fighting a civil lawsuit in the United States over allegations he had non-consensual sex with a woman in December 2015, while he was in the U.S. playing NFL for the San Francisco 49ers.

Police declined to charge Hayne after investigating the allegations, and the woman involved lodged a civil suit.

The 30-year-old was placed under strict conditions with a $20,000 surety.

But asked about Hayne's chances of getting another NRL deal, Greenberg said: "Jarryd has got issues to deal with and they have got nothing to do with rugby league at the moment".

The Eels had been hopeful at least one other player could be picked up by another club to fit Hayne into next year's salary cap.
