Kane Bentley (born 17 April 1987 in New Zealand) is a rugby league player who currently plays for Toulouse Olympique. Having grown up and played virtually his entire career in France, he is also a France international.
Born to a New Zealand/Samoan father and New Zealand Maori mother in Auckland, Bentley moved to France at a young age where his father played for La Réole XIII.
His senior league started at Marseilles then UTC. In 2007, he gained promotion to the Dragons first team squad alongside his brother Andrew and then moved to Toulouse. In 2015 he signed with the Boston 13s in the United States, helping them to the 2015 USARL Championship.
Bentley represented France at junior level for a number of years.
He was named in the France squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup and for the Four Nations tournament. Bentley was also eligible for Scotland but he was snubbed for the European Cup and instead opted to play for France.
He has since been a regular for the senior side, and was named in the squad for the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
