England scrum-half Care signs new Harlequins contract

England scrum-half Danny Care has signed a new two-year deal with Harlequins.

The 32-year-old joined the London club from Leeds in 2006 and has gone on to make over 250 appearances for Quins, scoring 76 tries in that time.

As well as winning the Premiership and European Challenge Cup during his stay at The Stoop, Care has become England’s most capped scrum-half, playing in 84 Test matches since his 2008 debut.

Harlequins Head of Rugby Paul Gustard said: “Danny epitomises all that is good about Harlequins and I know everyone at the club joins me in congratulating him on his new contract.

“Danny offers something different in every match we play and he is a player that you never want to come up against. There are very few players in the world that have his talent allied to his level of consistency in performance.

“He has a huge part to play in our quest for future honours. He continues to impress, innovate and excite. He continues to bring energy, love and support and has been exceptional for us this season in all aspects of his play.”
