Man bites shark! Shocking moment Gold Coast Titans star BITES a Cronulla player – before being sent into disgrace
- Gold Coast skipper Kevin Proctor is sent off for biting a teammate’s arm

- He bit the arm of Kiwi teammate Shaun Johnson during the Saturday game
Gold Coast captain Kevin Proctor has been dismissed for allegedly biting Kiwis teammate Shaun Johnson in the Titans’ NRL clash with Cronulla.
Proctor was marched for the incident where he appeared to bite the Sharks halfback’s forearm while being tackled, before a sling contest ensued.
The 32-year-old was heard saying ‘you strangled me, you f *** ing sook’ before being marched at 56 minutes by referee Henry Perenara.

Proctor became only the second player to be sent off this NRL season and the first in a game – after Manly enforcer Addin Fonua-Blake shot at the referee in June.
The discharge was checked with bunkers before Proctor was expelled.
Saturday’s game at the Netstrata Jubilee Stadium was tied at 12-12 at the time of the incident in the second half, before Cronulla jumped to a 30-12 lead 18 minutes later.
Johnson later left the field with a groin injury in what could be a huge blow to Cronulla’s season.
Reruns of the moment are circulating on social media, with Twitter users calling Proctor ‘disgusting’ and a ‘grub’ for his actions.
The Gold Coast Captain indicated that he wanted to be a part of the club’s success after a series of dramas over the years.
The New Zealand international’s four seasons with the Titans haven’t had too much fun on or off the field.

Proctor has witnessed the firing of two coaches, finishing 14th, 15th and 16th in his first three full campaigns with the club.
He was stripped of his captaincy in 2017 after a cocaine scandal and will have to put in a strong performance to secure a new deal with the Gold Coast Titans.
After a win against the Cowboys on August 9, Proctor spoke of his hopes of staying with the club as they move towards a bright future.
“Obviously I’d love to stay here, but it is what it is, I know it’s all business in the end,” said Proctor.
‘I just love where the Titans are going and where we are going right now.
“Because I’m here when the time isn’t right, I’d like to be there when the times are right.”
