There’s been plenty of speculation into the future of a certain Danny Care over the past few weeks. Will he stay? Will he move to France? Will he retire?

With the veteran scrum half recently announcing his international retirement, the rumour mill had started turning with increased pace.

There was plenty of speculation that the 37-year-old would be joining many of his former England teammates over in France as a cash injection for the final part of his career.

Care had reportedly been offered £400,000 per year to make to move over to either Bayonne or Perpignan.

In the end, Care decided to re-sign with Harlequins, citing it an “easy decision” to stick with a team he has already enjoyed 18 seasons with. The commitment is a short term one, with the new contract lasting just the one year, with the player not confirming or denying whether this will be his final year.

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.”

Fans had been quick to celebrate the news, with fans on social media saying:

“A true giant in rugby and for the Quins a life long player whose name is usually first on the starting lineup. Youngsters look up to him as an iconic player who leads by example. Danny Care we look up to you !!”

“We need to get a statue of Danny out side the stoop!”
