Jarryd Hayne's intention to play rugby union has been welcomed by Wallabies winger Rob Horne, even though his NSW Waratahs side aren't interested in the former NRL star.

Hayne has retired from the NFL to try to make the Fijian sevens team for the Rio Olympic Games but, if successful, that would make him ineligible to play for the Wallabies.

"The more attention to rugby the better, so it's great to have someone like that coming into our game," Horne said.
