Harlequins director of rugby Conor O’Shea is keeping tight-lipped about the future of talismanic fly-half Nick Evans.
The New Zealander has had a starring role in the Premiership champions’ perfect start to their title defence.
He masterminded the 29-point comeback that saw Quins past London Wasps on opening day and he put in a man-of-the-match performance, kicking all five of his conversion attempts, as they trampled London Welsh 40-3 on Friday night.
But the stand-off is considering his options for next season with clubs in Japan and France trying to tempt him away from The Stoop.
“Everyone at Harlequins wants him and hopefully he will be here,” O’Shea said.
“We will do our talking behind the scenes.”
