Danny Care signs new Quins deal

Harlequins has announced that scrum-half Danny Care has signed a new deal with the Club.

Signing on for what will be his 18th year with Harlequins ahead of the 2023/24 season, Care has put pen to paper as the 35-year-old extends one of the most impressive careers in the English game.

In the Premiership alone the scrum-half currently sits fourth in the all-time try scoring charts (83 league tries) and fifth for appearances (260), with his fine club form showing no signs of slowing down.

Closing in on 350 appearances for Harlequins across all competitions, Care is one of just four players to have represented the Club on over 300 occasions. The halfback currently holds the record for tries scored for the Club, standing as the only player to have touched down 100 times in the iconic Harlequins jersey.

Debuting for the national side in 2008 after an impressive first two years in Twickenham after joining from Leeds Tykes, Care has represented England 87 times, most recently during the national side’s summer tour of Australia earlier this year.

A true Harlequins legend, Care has been central to three of the Club’s most memorable days, starting the 2011 Challenge Cup triumph over Stade Francais as well as the Club’s two Premiership Finals in 2012 and 2021.

A key senior leader at the Club, Care also captained Quins during the 2015/16 and 2016/17 campaigns, leading the team to a European Rugby Challenge Cup Final before helping the side back into the top tier of European rugby the following season.

Commenting, Care said: “Pulling on the Quins jersey has been and continues to be one of the proudest parts of my career and I’m delighted to sign on again with Harlequins.

“I’ve been with this club for the better part of two decades and I cherish some incredible memories from the things we have achieved so far. The Challenge Cup win in 2011 and the Premiership titles in 2012 and 2021 are some of the highlights of my career and I know this group is capable of creating moments of the same calibre.”
