Harlequins ‘legendary’ fly-half to retire at end of season

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.”
