If true, guessing we'd be very keen to retain Evans?

Quins forum reckon Charlie Walker is off to us.
Would be very happy with that.

Sounds like they think it's happening today. (I.e. Mid season)

No thanks to Charlie Walker. 91 points in the last 7 seasons at Quins is not really that great. 13 points on average a season is not that special.
There is never any points for 2nd place...

210 points in 91 games.
Which is 42 tries in 91 games or a 42% try scoring rate.

BOC to Japan would be great business for the club. For me Thompson is the no1 openside for the team and would give more gametime to Evans who can be something special.

Charlie Walker would be a good injury dispensation signing. He's got some twinkling feet but seems out of favour at Quins. Great finisher but needs to improve his positioning and abilities under the high ball. One thing we have been able to do during Murphy's tenure as a coach is improve back three players we've signed so he could be a good fit.

BoC, Fitz and Williams all rumoured to be off. Not too surprised that Kitch is also not being touted off.

Change of attitude in Forward recruitment?
