Gareth Evans heads into his third ITM Cup campaign for Otago in 2013, with the opportunity to fill the gap left by All Blacks and Highlanders loose forward Adam Thomson.
Evans, the younger brother of two-test All Black Bryn Evans has been a consistent performer in the Blue and Gold jersey since making his debut in 2011 as a 19 year old, and will look to cement a starting position in the team this season.
