“Signed up and ready” – Danny Care will quit rugby for new left-field career

England star Danny Care has taken steps towards a new career after dumping his long-term advisors Esportif to sign up with entertainment specialists Insanity Group.

Insanity call themselves a forward thinking global entertainment company that look after Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley and former Spandau Ballet frontman Martin Kemp.

Former England star Care is set to continue playing for Quins for another season, but joining up with Insanity is clearly looking at a post-rugby career in entertainment in 2025 and beyond.

Ironically, Care’s new agent at Insanity shares the same name as a former England teammate, Jonny Wilkinson.

Care made his England debut back in 2008 against New Zealand and has since gone on to earn over 90 caps for his country.

His rugby career began in Leeds, before he signed for Harlequins in 2006. Danny has represented England at nine levels, through the age grade system and a stint in the sevens code, in which he won a Commonwealth Games silver medal.

In an international career spanning 15 years and counting, Care recently featured in Steve Borthwick’s Rugby World Cup 2023 squad.

The scrum half was named in Borthwick’s 36-player squad ahead of the Guinness Men’s Six Nations 2024.

“Petrified of him” – Wayne Barnes and Nigel Owens both name the worst players to referee

Nigel Owens and Wayne Barnes have been sharing insights into the biggest worky-ticket players they’ve encountered while officiating high-profile matches throughout their careers.

#1. Richie McCaw

BARNES SAID: “Richie always had the knack of asking the right question at the right time, sometimes it felt like I was losing a little bit of control. Contrary to popular belief, he didn’t talk a lot on the field. He knew the law book inside out and so when he asked a question, he often had a point.”

OWENS SAID: “If anybody had to pick the greatest player in history, it would surely be a difficult choice between him and Gareth Edwards.”
