These deals come just days after veteran Danny Care signed a one-year contract extension with the club, putting to bed any speculation that he could be leaving Quins at the end of the season after 18 years.

“I’m excited to extend my contract with Quins for my 19th season at the club,” Care said after the deal was announced.

“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.”

Quins are also set to see a number of big names leave at the end of the season, including Andre Esterhuizen, Louis Lynagh and Will Collier. Meanwhile, they are yet to bring in any replacements.
