Danny Care’s pace and invention have made him one of the most dangerous operators in world rugby and he has been a regular on the international stage since making his breakthrough in 2008. He is the highest scoring scrum half in Premiership history, and England’s second most capped scrum half.

Having joined Harlequins in 2006, Danny is one of the most loyal and popular players in the game. DC, as he is nicknamed, is adored by his Quins fans, and has regularly been voted Supporters Player of the Season.

Always one of the first names on the team sheet, Danny captained Harlequins in both their 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, where he led them to a European Rugby Challenge Cup final before helping them back into the top tier of European rugby the following season. On the international stage, Danny has made more than 100 appearances for England at 9 different levels including multiple age groups as well as England Sevens and England Saxons.

Off the field, Danny is stylish, well-groomed and very much of the modern generation of rugby players. He married the beautiful Jodie in 2016, the mother of their son Blake, whose arrival has brought out the best in Danny and he has shown himself to be a complete natural as a father.
