Max has signed a new contract to stay with the Warriors until 2011.

This year, Max Evans ended his season by winning the Magners League Player of the Season award, decided by a media poll.

His season included his first international cap, as he played for Scotland in the RBS Six Nations. Like his brother, he qualifies through his maternal grandfather.

"When I was young, I supported England; I supported South Africa because my mum was South African and I supported Scotland because of my grandad.

"But it was funny because, when it came to Scotland against England, I supported Scotland. I wouldn't dare be a neutral in front of my grandad.

Max, who scored Scotland’s only try in his Murrayfield debut during the opening game of the RBS 6 Nations championship against Wales, said: "I've always been very happy in Glasgow and now that's even more-so given that Thom and I will be together until 2011.

A utility back who prefers to play outside centre, Max Brian Evans is making a rugby comeback having previously been in the academy set-up at Harlequins, where he got a couple of first-team games before a back injury sidelined him two years ago.

Max has spent his time out of rugby working as a professional golfer in Portugal. During that period, core work on his back appears to have brought about a full recovery and, after playing some sevens last summer, he was keen to get back into the sport properly.

Max moved to Glasgow from Portugal to join his brother Thom, and joined up with Glasgow Hawks, where he impressed so much that he was named on the wing in a 10th anniversary Glasgow Hawks Dream Team.

In recognition of his performances, he was signed by Sean Lineen to link up with Thom and the Glasgow Warriors. He was then called up to play for Scotland in the IRB Sevens World Series in Hong Kong, scoring against Fiji.

"This is a great opportunity and I am looking forward to playing alongside Thom," Max told the club website.

"Thom is already a hit with our supporters and now we hope Max will also become a vital player for us," added head coach Sean Lineen.

Max has in the past been under the tuteleage of the formidable Margo Wells for his fitness work.

He marked his A international debut by scoring two tries as a replacement wing in Scotland's 67-7 win against Ireland at McDiarmid Park, Perth, in February 2008.

Max has played in four IRB world series sevens tournaments, all in 2007, making his debut in Hong Kong and playing the subsequent Adelaide (Australia), and Twickenham events. Previously, he had played in the demonstration sevens match at half-time during the Six Nations game between Scotland and Ireland at Murrayfield in March 2007.
