"I don't know what the rules in the media are in Australia, OK? But you might want to fact-check," Tomsula told KNBR. "The 53 is not set."
As Tomsula will probably come to find out at some point, you don't have to fact-check here much, either.
Still, the anonymous account has some stature in the rugby world, leaving some to believe that Hayne may do something many thought was impossible just a few months ago when he signed.
Rugby conversions are typically a crapshoot at best and Hayne was trying to do it as a running back and kick returner, which requires an entirely different body type and skillset. That hasn't fazed him a bit this preseason, and he's looked nothing short of 53-man worthy.
Will he end up there? Tomsula sounds like he's making us wait until Saturday to find out.
