Rhys Evans (born 1992 in Bridgend, Wales) is a professional rugby league player for Warrington Wolves in the Super League. His position is centre, though he can play wing or fullback. He is the twin brother of fellow Wales international Ben Evans.

Early career[edit]

Evans for The Wolves 2011

Both he and his brother were noticed by scouts of numerous Super League clubs while representing their secondary school, Brynteg Comprehensive School, in the National Schools Rugby League final on two separate occasions, 2004 and 2005.

Although he had been brought up in an area dominated by rugby union and playing junior rugby for Tondu RFC, he and his brother accepted a scholarship with Warrington and moved there as teenagers.

Known for his tremendous footwork, agility and speed, he is thought to have a bright future in the game.[citation needed]

Domestic career[edit]

Evans made his Warrington debut in 2010.

In the 2014 season, Evans scored 16 tries playing on the left wing. However, his game time was restricted in 2015 through multiple injuries.

In 2016, Evans has begun the season playing right centre, scoring 2 tries against the Catalans Dragons in a 30-20 win.

International career[edit]

Having represented his country at youth level, Evans made his Wales debut in their opening match of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
