Kane Evans In Hot Water For 'Fold Some C**t' Wrist Tape

The NRL looks set to launch an investigation into Kane Evans after the Warriors prop drew the wrong sort of attention for his wrist tape over the weekend.

18th man Evans was unused by head coach Nathan Brown in the Warriors' 30-16 loss as the hands of the Penrith Panthers.

But despite the fact that he didn't feature at all during the entire 80 minutes, Evans still made headlines.

At one point in the game, cameras panned out across the Warriors bench and captured Evans sitting alongside his teammates.

But when the cameras zoomed in a little closer, eagle-eyed viewers noticed something else.

On the side of Evans' wrist strapping, he had written a message which read: "Fold some c**t".

And according to the Sydney Morning Herald, the NRL has now come out and said they will "examine the incident".

The tape was a talking point in the commentary box throughout the game too.

"If Evans is that much of an imbecile, he should be suspended before he takes the field," ABC play caller Andrew Moore said at the time.

The NRL has shown no mercy in the past when it comes to punishing players for controversial messaging on their strapping.

Back in 2016, Andrew Fifita was fined $20,000 for penning a message which supported Kieran Loveridge - a man who had just been sentenced for killing someone in a coward-punch attack.

Matt Lodge, who is a new teammate of Evans at the Warriors, was also slapped with a two-game ban in 2014 for writing the word "c**t" on his taping too.
