    Kane Evans called out by Warriors player over alleged racial slur in NSW Cup game

    PARRAMATTA prop Kane Evans has been accused of a racial slur during a reserve grade match with the NSW Rugby League scrutinising the incident.

    Playing for the Eels’ feeder side Wentorthville, Evans was put on report after Warriors second-rower Joseph Vuna made an official complaint during Saturday night’s NSW Cup clash at ANZ Stadium.

    The NSWRL on Saturday night was compiling its report and, if deemed to be a case of racial vilification, would refer it to the Human Rights Commission.

    The incident occurred with four minutes on the clock in Wentworthville’s 36-6 loss after Evans had the ball dislodged in a tackle.

    Tempers boiled over as Warriors players confronted Evans, a Fijian international.

    They pointed at the former Sydney Roosters’ forward as they made a complaint. It’s not clear what Evans is accused of saying, with the two sides again coming together at full-time.

    “What we’ve got is an on-field complaint about a racial allegation,” referee Todd Smith said on the field.

    “We’re going on with the game and will leave it there.”

    After coming over to the Eels from the Roosters, Evans has played just four first-grade matches this season because of injury and form.

    Racial Vilification is against the law so it's not overkill imo
