Yesterday some long expected news was confirmed by one Super League club.
Hull FC confirmed that a release had been agreed with prop Kane Evans.
The Black and Whites haven’t been on the best form this season and Evans hasn’t featured for around a month.
There was plenty of speculation surrounding the big forward and the club have now confirmed his departure.
In a statement on their website the Airlie Birds announced the news.
“Hull FC can confirm that Kane Evans has been released from his contract by mutual consent.
“Evans will return to Australia for personal reasons.
“The club wishes him well for the future.”
Evans had arrived in Hull prior to the 2022 season but in this, his second season he’s struggled to make the same impact. Injuries and suspensions have worked against the big forward during his time in the UK.
Prior to his Super League career he had impressed with Sydney Roosters, Parramatta Eels before a short sting with New Zealand Warriors rounded off his NRL career before his release.
Hull will need a replacement especially with reports that Chris Satae is set to join Catalans Dragons in 2024.
There have been rumours that the Black and Whites are set to sign NRL prop Franklin Pele from the Canterbury Bulldogs on a two year deal.
Pele previously played for Cronulla Sharks and joined Canterbury but this hasn’t stopped rumours that the 22 year old is headed to the MKM Stadium on a two year deal.
But Canterbury Bulldogs chief Phil Gould has shut those rumours down.
Asked by a fan on social media, Gould simply said: “No.”
