|Matt Evans vs Scotland|
Evans´ international debut came in what was a noteworthy year as in 2008 he also played in the IRB Junior World Championship. At the tournament he played five games, scoring two tries - one against Australia and one versus Scotland. While, Crowley used him vs both Wales and Scotland in Canada´s two other internationals following the clash vs Ireland. He started vs Scotland at flyhalf. The following year he returned to the wing for Canada and impressed vs Georgia as he scored two tries in the Churchill Cup. He scored another vs the USA at Edmonton as Canada qualified for Rugby World Cup 2011 with an impressive win. His movement aruond the backline continued for Canada´s November matches vs Russia and Japan with Evans starting both at outside centre. He played well as a replacement fullback vs Uruguay in the 2010 Churchill Cup and then moved to flyhalf and impressed in Canada´s famous win over France A and in the sides loss vs the England Saxons. With Ander Monro in form in 2010 and 2011, Evans´ chances of playing flyhalf vanished and he returned to the wing in time for the World Cup, scoring a good try vs Russia in June 2011.
Having impressed in the 2010 Churchill Cup, Evans was signed to play in the Celtic-Italian League (now known as the Rabo Direct Pro 12) by the Newport-Gwent Dragons. Reciving limited opportunities and not taking his slim chances, he was released by the club in May 2011. After serving his country in New Zealand 2011, Evans recieved an offer to return to the UK this time to play in England´s second division, The Championship. He has been recieving plenty of game time with the Cornish Pirates, as a winger.
