The 37-year-old, who has a record 374 first-team appearances, has put pen to paper on a new one-year deal which will take the scrumhalf into his 19th season at the Club.

One of just three players to have played more than 300 times for Quins, Care holds the record for most Club appearances, and stands alone as the only player to have scored more than 100 tries in the Quarters.

A true club legend, Care has been central to three of Quins’ most memorable days, starting the 2011 Challenge Cup triumph over Stade Francais, alongside the Premiership titles in 2012 and 2021.

Renowned for his leadership, Care captained Quins during the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, leading the team to the Challenge Cup final against Montpellier, before helping the Club return to Champions Cup action the following season.

On the international stage, Care achieved 101 caps for England across 15 years in Test rugby, including 15 tries and three drop-goals. The scrumhalf retired from England duty earlier this year as a three-time Six Nations winner, achieving Grand Slam success in 2016, alongside Rugby World Cup selection in 2015 and 2023.

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.”

Director of Rugby Billy Millard added: “Danny has been an incredible servant to our Club and a true Harlequin, leading from the front with his exceptional professionalism, hard work, and determination to succeed.

“We love having Danny in our squad, he’s a great character and his infectious energy, alongside his experience, means he’s a hugely popular and important member of our Quins DNA.”
