Hull FC, Salford Red Devils and Wakefield Trinity reportedly battle it out for major signing

Hull FC, Salford Red Devils and Wakefield Trinity are reportedly battling it out for a major signing.

The news has all come rather quick with the sacking of Gold Coast Titans captain Kevin Proctor yesterday for a bizarre half-time incident that took place during the Titans’ loss to the Canterbury Bulldogs at the weekend.

However, the Daily Telegraph has reported that Proctor is definitely on his way to Super League after finishing his career in the NRL with 283 appearances to his name.

The Telegraph has also named those three Super League sides that are reportedly chasing his name: Hull FC, Salford Red Devils and Wakefield Trinity.

Though the frizzy-haired New Zealand international has a wealth of experience under his belt, there have been question marks over his discipline in the past, with a number of incidents marring his fruitful career so far.

Proctor, who was fined $20,000 by the Titans and banned for four games in 2017 over a cocaine scandal, used his own Instagram account to post a vide of himself, vaping in the toilets at the CommBank Stadium whilst the Titans were playing.

The Titans released a statement confirming they have parted ways with Proctor who has been at the club for five years.

“The Gold Coast Titans have sanctioned Kevin Proctor after being made aware of an incident during yesterday’s round 19 fixture against the Bulldogs,” the club said.

“Proctor has also been released from his commitments with the club for the remainder of the year and will not return to train or play with the squad.

“His actions were in breach of both NRL and Stadium regulations.”

Proctor’s manager Chris Orr said the 33-year-old has been under immense pressure recently concerning off-field matters.

“Kevin is dealing with some difficult issues surrounding the breakdown of his marriage and ongoing injuries,” Orr said.

“He will take this time to recover and refocus on possible opportunities overseas.”
