Scotland rugby player Max Evans is to face trial charged with hitting a man with a glass at a nightclub.
The 28-year-old former Glasgow Warriors star is accused of assaulting Alasdair McCaig at Edinburgh’s Lulu nightclub on August 1 last year.
At Edinburgh Sheriff Court, he continued his plea of not guilty to the charge that he struck Mr McCaig on the face with a glass to his severe injury, permanent disfigurement and permanent impairment.
A hearing will be held on November 7 to debate outstanding legal issues.
Evans, who currently plays for French side Castres, had his bail continued.
