Closer to the end of this season Harlequins fly-half Nick Evans intends to retire from rugby.
Aged 36 years old, the New Zealander came to Quins in 2008. With this team he made more than 200 senior appearances. With Quins he managed to scor up to 2,200 points.
When pursuing his career at the Aviva Premiership club, the player helped them to win the league title, to say nothing of the European Challenge Cup.
During the period 2004-2007 Nick Evans also grasped 16 caps for the All Blacks. Aside from that, in Premiership history the sportsman’s regarded among the best overseas signings.
In a statement issued by Quins, Nick told that he thought breaking up with New Zealand was hard. However, leaving the game he’d played since he was 8, and where the rugby player had spent up to 17 years was far tougher.
Nick said that the game had taught him literary everything. It showed him things he couldn’t even imagine and introduced him to folks who aren’t just team-mates, but more – his true family!
