Former NRL star Jarryd Hayne has denied thinking the woman accusing him of rape was an 'idiot' who had messaged him on Instagram.
Crown prosecutor Brian Costello on Tuesday in the Newcastle District Court highlighted a phone call Hayne made to a family member just days before his arrest where he called the woman 'a young cow just carrying on'.
'She's just a f***in' idiot, man,' Hayne tells the unnamed family member in the November 16, 2018, call that police intercepted.
'You speak to them for a bit, they get attached ... 'Well, mate you f***in' messaged me off Instagram, you idiot' ... 'cause I've flicked her, she's blown up.'

Mr Costello put it to Hayne he thought the woman was an idiot and went to her house just to have sex, not strike up a friendship or discuss politics.

He told the jury he was 'fuming' just before his arrest because the woman was 'full of s***', not because she was going to report the alleged rape to the NRL and police.
Hayne had earlier admitted he wanted to have a 'fling' with the woman.
On his third day in the witness box, Hayne said when he realised she was upset and angry with him for having a taxi waiting outside, he knew she didn't want to have sex with him but decided to please her by giving her oral sex.
When questioned about how forceful he had been when using his finger on the woman, Hayne said he didn't know how to judge force.
'I was going fast. I didn't have a radar that night, sorry.'
Asked about a $50 note left on the woman's bed, Hayne denied putting the money there to bribe the woman to keep silent. He later pocketed the money after she said it wasn't hers.
Hayne had been on his way home to Sydney after a two-day bucks party for rugby league player Kevin Naiqama in Newcastle when he decided to pop in to the woman's nearby
