A graduate of Westlake Boys High School on the North Shore, Nick Evans played for North Harbour from 2002-04 and transferred to Otago for the 2005 season after two years of being drafted into the Highlanders.

He returned home to play for the Blues in 2008, and the deceptively quick All Black added genuine world class to the Blues backline, becoming one of the standout performers of the season.

The accomplished goal kicker and tactician played 16 tests for the All Blacks before signing a contract with English Aviva Premiership club Harlequins in the summer of 2008.
