He had a rocky stint at the New Zealand Warriors but Kane Evans has a new challenge ahead of him after signing with Hull FC.
The Super League side has signed Evans on a two-year deal hoping that his enforcer status can become a regular thing for their side.
Evans, who has also had stints with both the Sydney Roosters and the Parramatta Eels, has been known to put on a big hit.
Also a Fijian international, Evans is excited at the opportunity that awaits him at Hull FC.
“To have signed my deal and to be on my way over there soon is a massive opportunity for me and I can’t wait to get started with the club, “Evans said.
“I’ve always wanted to test myself on the other side of the world in Super League. From what I have heard from some of the boys I know who already play in Super League say that the forwards tend to be much bigger.”
The challenge of the Super League excites Evans and after hearing good things about Hull FC, he is eager to perform well.
“It is a new test for me to challenge myself against some of the big names on the other side of the world, and I am looking forward to making home at Hull FC having heard a lot of good things about the club and the city,” Evans continued.
Hull FC coach Brett Hodgson, who is a former player himself, believes Evans brings a different style, one that can help the club.
“Kane is a big unit and his addition to our squad brings another level of power, aggression, and size next season, and we’re pleased to have another key player tied down for 2022,” Hodgson said.
“He’s got a wealth of experience having played consistently in the NRL for the best part of a decade, and a competitive streak which is clear to see when he takes to the field.
“He also brings an impressive offload game which can help us develop our second phase of attack further and threaten opposition teams across the park.”
