Hayne was dominant in that 2009 series if it wasn't for him QLD would've won those first 2 games by cricket scores. He was the difference in 2014 imo, his performance in Game 1 that year was the stuff of a truly great player. He should've been man of the series. He was a great player for NSW and Australia.
What he is capable of and what he has achieved are two different things. Jarryd Hayne for me plays for Jarryd Hayne. He isnt a great team player. He is great when he can be bothered, but he isnt anywhere near the class of Thurston for example. Imo, he hasnt produced enough regularly to be classed as a great yet. He still has time on his side, unless he finds a new dream to chase.
Hayne wasnt really dominant in the 2009 series, he just played well. About the only dominant thing in that series from a nsw point was Barretts dog shot on Inglis, who had a better series than Hayne anyway.
