It took all of three minutes for former Parramatta Eels star Jarryd Hayne to be handed a second charge of sexual intercourse without consent at Newcastle local court on Wednesday.
Dressed in a dark suit and striped tie, Hayne sat in the front row of the courtroom during a brief mention of his charges before magistrate John Chicken, who continued his bail.
As the 31-year-old's original charge was presented to the court, Mr Chicken asked about the second charge, saying "I don't live in a bubble".
According to court documents, police allege Hayne had sexual intercourse with a 26-year-old woman without her consent and "did recklessly inflict actual bodily harm" on her "in circumstances of aggravation".
Aside from the fresh charge, Hayne also appeared in court on Wednesday for charge certification (committal) over a count of aggravated sexual assault inflicting actual bodily harm - to which he pleaded not guilty in November.
Both charges relate to an alleged incident on NRL Grand Final night last year, when Hayne travelled in a taxi to the woman's house in the Newcastle region.
It is alleged he sexually assaulted the woman at the house, ripping off her clothes and biting her on the genital area, drawing blood.
She sought medical treatment for her injuries at hospital the next day.
Court documents note the alleged incident took place between 8pm and 10pm on September 30, 2018.
As reported on Wednesday, it is understood the new charge relates to a specific sex act allegedly committed by Hayne on the same night.
Mr Chicken continued Hayne's bail and granted two variations - the police station he must report to and a condition related to his residence.
As part of his bail conditions, Hayne must report to Woy Woy police station on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and live at a Central Coast address.
Previous conditions remain in force, including that he not enter the Newcastle local government area or any international airport or point of departure from Australia - he has surrendered his passport.
He is banned from attempting to contact the alleged victim or any witnesses by any means, including social media or through a third party.
Hayne remained silent as he walked from the courthouse to a waiting car on Hunter Street as a media pack approached him for comment.
Both matters were adjourned to June 26, with a case conference expected to take place a week earlier on June 17.
