The latest on Harlequins pursuit of All Black fly-half

Harlequins and England scrum half Danny Care had revealed his Gallagher Premiership club were keen on landing All Black fly-half Beauden Barrett following the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Quins have a link with the New Zealand Rugby Union but as of yet there has been little evidence of its success.

Speaking as a pundit on the BBC’s Rugby Union Weekly podcast, he revealed he met the New Zealand world player of the year nominee on holiday in Dubai last week.


He said: “He got an offer from Harlequins, he said no because he is going to go to Japan.

“He said his agent got a little sniff if he would be interested in coming over here.”

Care also revealed Harlequins are set to announce a few high profile signings in the next couple of weeks.
