Ben Evans (born 30 October 1992 in Bridgend, Wales) is a Welsh professional rugby league player for Warrington in the Super League. He primarily plays second-row and prop. He is the twin brother of Warrington centre Rhys Evans.
Ben signed for Warrington alongside his twin brother Rhys Evans and progressed through the youth system, appearing for the first-team in several pre-season friendlies but never in a competitive match.
Evans featured in Round 1 (St Helens) to Round 5 (Salford). He then featured in Round 7 (Huddersfield) and then in Round 9 (Widnes) to Round 17 (Salford). Evans featured in Round 4 (Hull Kingston Rovers) to the Quarter Final (Bradford) in the Challenge Cup. He scored against Hull (1 try) and Hull Kingston Rovers (1 try).
In 2013 he was offered the chance to go to another Super League side on loan, Bradford. Ben signed a 1 year loan deal with Bradford before pre-season started in time for the 2013 season. However, his debut was delayed as a hip injury ruled him out for the start of the season. He left at the end of the season to return to his parent club Warrington where he has played this season repeatedly and scored 1 try.
Having represented Wales at youth level, in 2012 Ben was called up by the senior squad to play in the 2012 Autumn International Series. He made his international debut in a 20-6 loss to France, and made a further appearance against England that year. He made his international debut before making a first-team appearance at club level.
