Harlequins legend Danny Care pens new deal

Harlequins icon Danny Care has signed a new deal with the club that will keep him at the Stoop for next season.

The 37-year-old had received plenty of interest from clubs in France, however he has decided to stay with the Londoners.

Care joined Harlequins from Leeds Tykes in 2006, and has gone onto play 374 games for the club. In his time, he has also helped Quins win two Premiership titles and one European Challenge Cup.

Commenting on his new contract, Care said: “I’m excited to extend my contract with Quins for my 19th season at the Club. This is my home, I love everything about it, the rugby we play, our amazing fans, and the memories we have made together.”

“It was an easy decision to sign the contract. We have a great group of lads who I love playing with, and we’re building something very special. We have the best fans in the world, and I can’t wait to pull on the Quarters for another season and run out in front of a packed Stoop.”

Care has also had a glittering, if bumpy, international career. Despite being out of the international picture for four years, he won 101 caps for England and lifted three Six Nations titles.

Director of Rugby Billy Millard added: “Danny has been an incredible servant to our Club and a true Harlequin. He leads from the front with his exceptional professionalism, hard work, and determination to succeed. We love having Danny in our squad.”

Despite being in the twilight of his career, he is still an integral part of this Quins team. Following his return from the World Cup, Care has made 16 appearances in the quarters.

Care’s new deal will also take him into his 18th season at the Stoop.
