sport news Jarryd Hayne's accuser did three key things that prove she didn't consent to ... trends now

A woman who accused former NRL star Jarryd Hayne of sexual assault did 'certain acts' which were consistent with demonstrating she was not consenting during a fleeting encounter at her home, a jury has been told.

Crown prosecutor John Sfinas addressed the jury in his closing arguments on Thursday afternoon as the two-week NSW District Court trial enters its final stage.

The 35-year-old Dally M winner has pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual assault without consent, with the jury hearing more than eight days of evidence.

Mr Hayne denies sexually assaulting the woman at her home on Newcastle's outskirts in September 2018, on the night of the NRL grand final, claiming they engaged in consensual sexual acts.

The former footy star is accused of pulling off the woman's pants before allegedly performing oral and digital sexual acts on her without her consent, causing cuts and substantial bleeding.

During his closing address to the jury, Mr Sfinas said in terms of demonstrating a lack of consent, it's separated into words and actions.

'The Crown says the complainant in this matter said words and made actions,' he told the jury.

The jury heard the woman held up her pants when Mr Hayne tried to remove them, while saying 'no' and 'stop' and resisting Mr Hayne.

She had also texted her friend in the hours following the alleged incident, saying: 'I feel like I let it happen to myself by not screaming at him.'

'You might think trying to hold up her pants is an act, moving away from someone, being pushed and trying to push back against it,' Mr Sfinas said.

'They are actions, so while she says here, 'I feel like I let it
