How many NRL players this year have thrown punches in more than one game? They don't do it because they care about their teams and know they will be sin binned and suspended.Hey the guy is a meat axe but when he is out there and something happens he does show agro and I take that to be he does care about the Warriors unlike many of the other dead Zombies out on the field that look lost for 80 minutes
Yea, but you can have the passion which we admire but not have the self control which we don’t want. He can’t seem to get the balance right.How many NRL players this year have thrown punches in more than one game?

Throwing punches in situations where they are not required is caring about yourself not the team.
I really don't care about him throwing punches, he's actually just a shit prop IMO. He has never used that frame to any good use at all!
You can add Matt Lodge with his offloading ability.He tries to throw an offload out over the top every time he gets into contact - presumably because when he was coming up through the ranks it would work against much smaller blokes. He desperately needs to get some variety in his game otherwise he risks becoming (arguably has already become) just a one-dimension plodder that doesn't fit with the faster direction the game is heading in.
Look at Addin Fonua-Blake, he has a nice mix of late footwork at the line, some offloads in traffic, bit of ballplaying, and just tucking it and running hard and straight.
Goodnight sweet prince
Warriors release controversial prop for overseas opportunities
The Warriors have an extra spot to fill in 2022.
OCTOBER 8, 2021
The New Zealand Warriors have officially released prop Kane Evans from the remainder of his playing contract.
The 29-year-old had originally signed a two-year deal with the Warriors following his time at the Parramatta Eels. He was due to remain at the club until at least the end of the 2022 season.
However, a statement released by the Warriors on Friday morning confirming the release of Evans said that he had been released by mutual consent to chase opportunities in the English Super League.
Evans played just 14 games during his 2021 season with the Warriors, ultimately never rising to the level he had produced at the Sydney Roosters and Parramatta Eels since his 2014 debut.
He was first fined for an incident where he had the words "fold some c**t" written on his wrist strapping tape, before he was suspended twice at the back-end of the season for punching - first against Will Chambers in Round 21, and then against the Gold Coast Titans in Round 25.
He will have a five-game suspension hanging on his record should he ever sign another NRL deal.
Warriors' recruitment manager Peter O'Sullivan confirmed Evans had left the club amicably.
“By mutual agreement we’ve parted ways amicably to enable Kane to pursue opportunities in the Super League,” 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.”
There has been no official announcement yet from any Super League club regarding Evans' location, however, it's understood the Warriors were shopping him to the competition over a week ago.
Evans was, by the end of the season, only a backup option in Nathan Brown's injury-ravaged squad. The signature of front rower Aaron Pene from the Melbourne Storm will help to offset Evans' loss in the Warriors squad, however, with Leeson Ah Mau also lost to retirement, it's thought the Warriors will still be shopping for another middle forward to join their ranks ahead of 2022.
I thought he played well when he came on, but the end of season was comedy gold, almost as if he was aiming for a release...Well I was against the signing but must admit he provided some bloody good entertainment in the end.
Not a fan of praising them for this when they signed him in the first place. Bad signing by POS at the time and aged even worse. Luckily POS has done more good than bad so far.I like that the club is continuing to be ruthless with cutting the deadwood. Previous administrations would have played out his contract, and probably resigned him as no one else would come
