Nick Evans: Three-year deal for the classy New Zealand fly-half
Fly-half Nick Evans has become the second player to commit his future to Harlequins in the last 24 hours.
Evans ended lengthy speculation over his future by signing a three-year deal with the London club, the contract almost certainly meaning the 32-year-old will end his career at the Twickenham Stoop.
He joined Harlequins in 2008 from Otago and has since made 106 first team appearances for the club since, scoring 1,184 points including 16 tries.
Evans said: "Myself and my family are happy to have the opportunity to stay at Harlequins. I'm looking forward to continuing to play with a great bunch of lads and to working with a special coaching staff.
"There is no limit to what this team can achieve and I am excited to have an influence both on and off the field.
"My decision was made easy by the ambition of this great club, the success we have had and the hunger to want more. The support I have had from the supporters has been amazing and I will do my best to help the club stay one of the major forces in English and European rugby."
Quins also secured the future of centre Matt Hopper on Tuesday, with the former Cornish Pirates player signing a two-year deal.
