Former NRL star Jarryd Hayne was guilty of bad sex, not rape, his lawyer has told a jury before it retired to consider its verdict.
"To be frank, his sexual prowess turned out to be terrible," defence barrister Phillip Boulten SC told the Newcastle District Court jury on Thursday.
Hayne has previously told the court he had been giving the complainant oral sex with her consent in her bedroom to please her on the night of the 2018 NRL grand final when he must have accidentally cut her vagina with his finger.
Mr Boulten said when the woman started bleeding, it was not a big step for her to claim Hayne had been "nasty, uncaring and forcing me into it".
"Well, it was bad sex," the defence barrister said in his closing address.
He said if there hadn't been any blood, it was unlikely any complaint of sexual assault would have been made.
He said Hayne had stuck solid in his evidence about his version of events, asserting the woman never said "no" or "stop".
Hayne, 32, has pleaded not guilty to two charges of aggravated sexual assault inflicting actual bodily harm.
Mr Boulten described the phone call intercepted by police between Hayne and Newcastle Knights player Mitchell Pearce as "the essence of his defence".
In the November 15, 2018 call - four days before Hayne's arrest - Pearce asks: "Who's this sheila coming out saying something about ya?"
Hayne replied: "Oh, she's, f***, she's from Newie, bro.
"She was just sending me all these, all these nude snaps, bro, on Snapchat ... wanting to link up, link up; said, 'Yeah, yeah.' Then I was in Newie, I was like, oh, I'll pop in on the way home. So I did that and then f*****' she was filthy 'cause the cab was out the front. I said, 'Oh well, mate, I'm only going to be here for you know, (laughs) a short time.
"She just wigged out. And then, um, went - like I watched a bit of the grand final with her old girl. (Laughs)
"Come, come back and we were just fooling around and she like, she like bled a little bit. It was weird.
"Then, then she just wigged. I said, 'Listen, nah, you're sweet.' I said, 'F****' my, like my fingernail must have clipped you, that's all.
"There was nothing major. Like, it was just a little bit. Full wigged out. Said, 'Nah, nah, it's sweet, sweet.'
"I was like, 'Oh, OK, I'd better go now,' rah rah rah. And then she was just like filthy that I left her there. (Laughs) I was like, what the f***."
The Crown has said Hayne arrived drunk in a taxi at her house on the outskirts of Newcastle about 9pm on September 30, 2018 and stayed for about 45 minutes, committed two sex acts on her without her consent and caused two separate injuries to her genitalia before leaving.
The woman, who is now 28, said when Hayne tried to kiss and touch her she told him "no" and "stop", he pushed her face down into the pillow, ripped off her trousers and attacked her.
The woman's mother was also in the house, watching the grand final on TV.
Crown prosecutor Brian Costello said the complainant had reluctantly told her mother what happened with Hayne the following day and took about a month before she confided in her sister.
The woman also sent messages to her best friend that night detailing what Hayne had allegedly done to her and also sent her photographs of the blood on her bed and the injuries to her vagina.
She said she thought Hayne had bitten her vagina and she felt violated.
The jury deliberated for about three hours on Thursday afternoon after hearing evidence over nine days. It will resume on Friday.
