Pictures emerged on social media on Sunday afternoon appearing to show Hayne, playing his first match for the Gold Coast Titans after two years away from rugby league, brushing pocket referee Gavin Reynolds during the Warriors’ 24-14 win at Cbus Super Stadium.

Hayne said he “couldn’t understand” the rule which has caused a number of judiciary controversies this season, most recently when Dragons backrower Tyson Frizell was rubbed out for a week for inadvertently touching Chris James last week.

Asked about the incident, Hayne said: “I tried to stay as far away as I could. I don’t know what I did. Was it a touch or did he walk back into me? I’m not too sure. I really don’t understand what the go is with the whole ‘accidentally touching the ref thing’. Whatever happens happens.

“It’s probably the biggest mind-blowing thing … that a person can miss a week for accidentally touching a ref. It’s sad for someone to miss a week for a non-aggressive thing, I guess.” Could Hayne-Cam come back to haunt #JarrydHayne vision clearly shows him coming into contact with ref @9NewsBrisbanepic.twitter南京夜网/PR81YMrNJz— Tom Mitchell (@tmitch_86) August 7, 2016

Fox Sports marked the ex-Eel’s return to the game with a special viewer option to press the red button for a camera exclusively trained on Hayne throughout the match.

It didn’t see much action as Hayne was glued to the bench for the first 27 minutes, but showed his close encounter with Reynolds in the second half. And it remains to be seen whether the NRL’s match review committee will use the vision to examine the referee incident.

The 28-year-old was used to dodging officials during his time in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers and has returned to a game where even the most obscure contact with a referee comes under the glare of the officials.

“They [NFL referees] have got a pretty tricky job because they stand [everywhere],” Hayne said. “One’s in the line of scrimmage, one’s in the defence as well so he’s got to kind of read plays and get in and out as well. They’ve been run over a couple of times as well.”

A number of Frizell’s NRL rivals have lashed the rule which has resulted in a spate of contrary conduct charges in 2016.

The opposition to Frizell’s ban – which meant he missed the Dragons’ season-ending loss to the Broncos last Thursday night – was largely centred on the fact Bulldogs five-eighth Josh Reynolds escaped a suspension for tripping Joel Thompson in the same match.

Gold Coast coach Neil Henry will anxiously await the NRL’s charge sheet from the Titans-Warriors clash when it is released on Monday.

They can ill-afford to have Hayne, who showed flashes of the brilliance which marked his first stint in rugby league, to miss the crucial clash against the Tigers at Campbelltown Sports Ground next Saturday. The Tigers vaulted the Titans into the top eight after upsetting premiers North Queensland on Sunday afternoon.

Henry revealed five-eighth Tyrone Roberts will miss at least that match with a posterior cruciate ligament injury with Hayne a candidate to wear the No.6 alongside Ash Taylor in the halves.

But Hayne shied away from nominating his preferred position for the Titans’ run-in, leaving that to Henry and the coaching staff.

“That’s not for me to say,” Hayne said. “That’s up to the coaching staff and where they see fit. The more game time I have no matter where I play the more comfortable I’ll feel.”
