Nick Evans in Steve Borthwick’s new England coaching staff

In charge of the Harlequins attack since the end of his playing career, Nick Evans could join the staff of Steve Borthwick, the new coach of the English selection, in order to occupy the same position. The information was disclosed by The Times Friday morning.

Aged 42, the former All Blacks flyhalf who was champion with Harlequins as a player and coach is also considered the mentor of Marcus Smith, the young number 10 of Harlequins and XV de la Rose .

The very likely arrival of Evans therefore means that Borthwick does not necessarily want to continue the adventure with Martin Gleeson, who worked under the era of Eddie Jones. Borthwick, who took Kevin Sinfield in his luggage to manage the defense, would also think, according to the English press, of another Harlequins technician. Indeed, to stabilize a struggling scrum during the fall tests, the former Leicester coach surveyed Ian Peel, the specialist in this sector at Harlequins. If he signs, he will share his experience with Richard Cockerill, former assistant to Jones, whom Borthwick has decided to keep.
