Nick Evans is to retire at the end of the season
The 36-year-old won 16 caps for the All Blacks
He won a Premiership title in 2012 and holds Quins’ scoring record
Nick Evans has today announced he will retire from rugby at the end of the season following a stellar career within the sport.
“This game has taught me everything, showed me things I could never imagine and introduced me to people that are not team-mates but family.
“I need to thank the clubs I have represented, the coaches – who have helped shape the player I am today – and the fans, both in New Zealand where it all started, and here in the UK, for their support and cheers.”
Harlequins director of rugby John Kingston said: “The word ‘legendary’ is really over-used within the modern sporting world, but in the case of Nick Evans and his rugby playing career at Harlequins, it is the perfect description.”
Thank you Rugby.

Nick Evans to retire. One of the best overseas signings ever. Magician at number 10. Huge boots to fill at Harlequins.
