Welsh international prop Ben Evans has left Toulouse by mutual consent after asking the club to terminate his contract.
The former Warrington man joined Toulouse in 2019 but has been restricted to just 23 appearances for the French side thanks to the pandemic. In fact the virus is the major reason for his departure. The club themselves have stated that Evans was suffering from issues perpetuated by the persisting pandemic. Thus, his contract was terminated as requested allowing him to return home.
The prop just scored the 1 try for Toulouse during his time there but had he stayed he could’ve played an important role in their promotion push.
The 28-year-old started his career at Warrington making 21 appearances for the Wolves over the space of 5 years before leaving in search of consistent game time. That move eventually saw him make the move to France and Toulouse.
Evans may now look for a Super League team or even a British club in the Championship. He impressed at London making nearly 50 appearances for the Broncos in the second tier and also has history with another Championship team having played on loan at Bradford in 2013. Perhaps his good will at both clubs will see him given an opportunity to return.
All being well it won’t be long until we see Evans return to rugby but where and when that will be remains a mystery.
