Maxwell Brian "Max" Evans (born 12 September 1983, Torquay, England) is a Scottish international rugby union rugby player. He plays at centre and wing, and is currently without a club after being released by Castres at the end of the 2015 season.

Background[edit]

Evans formerly attended Wellington College with his brother and former Scottish international, Thom,[1] as well as friends and former rugby team mates James Haskell and Paul Doran-Jones of Harlequins F.C..

He is a cousin of disc jockey, Chris Evans.[2]

Playing career[edit]

Evans played golf professionally in Portugal from 2004–06 while recovering from a back injury suffered while playing for Harlequins' academy side.

Evans played for London Scottish in 2005–06 with former Scottish international Kenny Logan and former Waratahs winger and Australia A & 7's star Matt Dowling.

He earned his first cap for Scotland against Canada in November 2008. He scored his first try for Scotland on 8 February 2009, after coming on as a substitute for his younger brother, Thom, in the 2009 Six Nations Championship match against Wales. Thom, who also played for the Glasgow Warriors, was later forced to retire from rugby on 1 July 2010 as a result of a spinal injury he sustained in Scotland's 2010 Six Nations Championship match against Wales. On 10 May 2009, while playing for Glasgow against the Ospreys, Max sustained an injury to his knee, ruling him of competition for at least six months.[3]

On 14 February 2011 Evans confirmed he would leave the Glasgow Warriors[4] to join Castres[5]

Released from Castres June 2015
