Danny Care equals unwanted yellow card record

During Harlequins’ demolition of London Irish, scrum half Danny Care was given his fifth yellow card of the campaign, making him level with Garath Archer for the most yellow cards in one season.

Care was given his marching orders for a deliberate knock on, in the sixty first minute. Care’s time in the sin bin meant that he had received a yellow card in each of his last four premiership games – something that could result in a ban. One fan tweeted saying, “Is it even a Harlequins game if Care doesn’t get a yellow card?”

If the scrum half is handed a ban, he is likely to miss the crucial top of the table clash against premiership leaders Leicester Tigers. His other yellow cards in recent weeks came from twice playing the ball on the floor and a deliberate knock on against Worcester.

With at least four games left in the season for Harlequins, there is a real chance that by the end of the campaign, Danny Care will be the outright record holder of the most yellow cards in a singular season. Despite his yellow card record, this has still been a great year for the Englishman, who has scored six tries and assisted 13.

The London Derby was not all bad for Care however, who bagged a try himself in his team’s 41-14 victory away from home against their close rivals, London Irish.

It was actually the home side who made the better start to the game and were rewarded for their early pressure with a try from Paddy Jackson. However, after that it was all one way traffic, with Harlequins at their ruthless best inside the red zone.

Tries from Caden Murley, Huw Jones and ta brace from Jack Walker made the score 22-7 at half time, and last year’s champions showed no sign of slowing up in the second 40, adding 19 points to their tally.

However, London Irish are sure to be frustrated at the amount of points they left on the field with an Hassell-Collins try disallowed for a knock on and Argentinian winger Cinti having the ball dislodged just before he was about to score.

This was a big result for both clubs as it puts Harlequins in a great position to cement a semi-final place and also effectively ends London Irish’s top four hopes. It was also a significant game for the Premiership. Refereed by Frenchman Mathieu Raynal, it signalled a  chance for referees across Europe to apply their trade in different leagues. It’s hoped that this will allow players to become more adapted to different refereeing approaches and gives referees the chance to officiate alternative styles of the game.
