Sacked NRL star Kevin Proctor set to make shock career move following Super League interest

After being sacked by NRL club Gold Coast Titans following a bizarre vaping incident, Kevin Proctor has been linked heavily with a move to Super League.

Since then, Hull FC, Wakefield Trinity and Salford Red Devils have all been linked with the former New Zealand international, but nothing has come of it since.

All three have distanced themselves from signing Proctor who, at half-time during the Titans’ heavy loss to the Canterbury Bulldogs in July decided to post a video on his Instagram profile of him vaping.

Though there has been some interest from UK shores, The Mole of The Wide World of Sports has reported that Proctor is set to retire due to the fact that no Super League club is willing to shell out on a long-term deal for the fuzzy-haired enforcer.

Proctor, who was fined $20,000 by the Titans and banned for four games in 2017 over a cocaine scandal, took a video of himself vaping in one of the toilets at the CommBank Stadium and even posted it on his own Instagram page with the caption “not the half-time vape.”

The video was posted at 3.17pm, while the Titans-Bulldogs clash was still taking place.

And, if that wasn’t disrespectful enough to his own team, smoking is banned at all Australian stadia and the Titans have clearly felt this was the final, justified straw for Proctor in a career of indiscretions.

“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.”

If Proctor does retire it will end the career of one of the sport’s greatest characters – it’s just a shame we never got to see him on UK shores.
