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 until the end of the season, but joining up with Insanity is clearly looking at a post-rugby career in entertainment.
Care, who already hosts a rugby podcast for the BBC (Rugby Union Weekly), is also thought to be keen to follow former teammate Chris Robshaw to the USA for a season before retiring.
“I have never really thought about playing abroad until I saw the LA Giltinis team and I was like hang on, I like their kit, I like where they play, I like the place that they are from and I might be a good fit,” Care explained.
“Or if it’s not the Giltinis, it’s definitely something I would have a look at.“
The LA Giltinis already have a number of high-profile names in their squad, with Wallabies legends Matt Giteau and Adam Ashley-Cooper both currently playing their rugby in Los Angeles.

rom speaking to you, hearing from you, you see Matt Giteau, Adam Ashley-Cooper over there at the moment, it looks awesome, it looks like fun rugby,” Care said.
“I love the commentators – the commentators are brilliant, the English could take a leaf out of their book. So yeah, definitely, you never know.
“I have got one more year at Harlequins signed up. I’m enjoying my rugby, I feel fit, I feel fresh, I feel like I have got a few more years left in the tank.”
