Former New Zealand fly-half Nick Evans has signed a new contract with Aviva Premiership title contenders Harlequins.

Evans has been the club's first-choice playmaker since arriving from the Blues in 2008 and is their record points scorer with 2,024 from 181 games. The 35-year-old is also the leading points scorer in the Premiership this season.

"Harlequins have been the biggest part of my professional career and I'm so proud to have been given the opportunity to continue at this great Club," said Evans, who has 16 caps.

"The potential that this group of players has is incredibly exciting and I'm looking forward to being able to help us reach our domestic and European goals once again."

Evans landed the match-winning conversion from the touchline during the Amlin Challenge Cup final in 2011 and amassed 20 points when Quins were crowned 2012 Premiership champions with a 30-23 victory over Leicester at Twickenham.

"Nick is the consummate professional and his competitiveness still burns more than ever," Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea said.

"He's a massive influence on the group, a great role model for players both young and old and I have no doubt he will deliver for this club when it counts for a few more years yet."
