NRL forward released from contract to join Super League club

Kane Evans has been released from his New Zealand Warriors in order to join a Super League club.

The Warriors confirmed on Friday that Evans had played his last game for the club, following a less-than successful year with the New Zealand side.

The 29-year-old had rather a controversial end to his NRL career, with a five-match ban against the Gold Coast Titans summing up his frustrating 2021 season.

That punishment came just months after he was fined $5000 by the NRL for having ‘fold some c**t’ written on his wrist tape, though the Warriors did say the separation was “amicable”.

“By mutual agreement we’ve parted ways amicably to enable Kane to pursue opportunities in the Super League,” Warriors recruitment manager Peter O’Sullivan said.

“We thank Kane for the contribution he has made this season and wish him all the best for his future in England.”

It’s been widely reported that Evans has been chased by numerous English clubs, with Hull FC reportedly in the driving seat.
