Harlequins have confirmed that England international Danny Care has penned a new deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Care has been with the Quins since 2006 and is in the third for most appearances for the club with 289 games. Only Mike Brown and Chris Robshaw with 340 and 300 matches respectively have played more games than Care.

He was also part of the squad that went on to win the Premiership in the 2011/12 season and the European Challenge Cup success in the 2010/11 season.

“I’m delighted to extend my stay at the club I love for another year," said Care in a statement released by the club.

"I can’t wait to see the best fans in the world back at The Stoop and make some more memories with you all very soon. Stay safe, everyone!”

The 34-year-old started his professional rugby career with Leeds in 2003 and represented England Sevens in the 2004 and 2006 Common Wealth Games where his side went on to win Silver medals. His England debut came in summer series in 2008 and has gone on to play 84 Tests with his last appearance coming in the November series in 2018.

Harlequins Backs and Attack Coach Nick Evans expressed delight in Care committing to the club.

“Danny has been exceptional on the field for many years and is universally loved and respected by the coaches, players and fans alike. He is a unique, extremely talented individual, and we are delighted to see him commit his future to the Club.”
