Premiership players to watch - Harrison and Evans
Justin Harrison and Nick Evans
Of the other overseas players pitching up in the Premiership, maybe the most recognisable name is former Australia lock Justin Harrison.

The combustible 6ft 8in giant, famously labelled a "plank" by Austin Healey on the 2001 Lions tour, has joined Bath after three years with Ulster.

But for Dan Carter, Harlequins fly-half Nick Evans would have won far more than his 16 caps for the All Blacks.

Equally comfortable at full-back, where he won six of his caps, he attracted the attention of Australian Rules scouts before breaking through into top-level rugby.
