Daniel Stuart Care (born 2 January 1987) is an English rugby union player who plays for Harlequins in the Premiership as a scrum-half. In 2008, he made his England debut and has gained 84 caps.
He appeared for England in several youth age groups, as well as England Sevens and England Saxons.
In Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, Care was born. He first played rugby union in Leeds, West Park Bramhope RUFC (now called West Park Bramhope RUFC), but football was his first passion. He was accepted into Sheffield Wednesday Football Club, putting an end to club rugby union, but he was able to continue playing the game at Prince Henry's Grammar School in Otley at the age 11.
In 2000, he helped Prince Henry win the Under-13 Yorkshire Cup, but he missed almost all of the next season due to a broken leg sustained in a school game.
He was forced to choose between football and rugby union during the season, and he begged Sheffield Wednesday to remove him from his Academy job so he could concentrate on rugby union, but by the time he was called for the Under-15s of Yorkshire Schools, Pontefract, he had been invited for Yorkshire Schools' Under-15's. In May 2002, he was a member of the West Yorkshire squad that won the inaugural Under-15 National 10-a-side Festival, with the final being played in the Commonwealth Games stadium in Manchester.
With picks for Yorkshire and the North of England, another honour was earned before he made his England Schools' Under-16s debut against Wales at Neath in April 2003. Care had revived club rugby union with Otley by now, and the season had also brought another Yorkshire Cup victory with Prince Henry's under 16s.
Care's growth culminated in a bid to join the Leeds Tykes Academy at the start of the 2003–04 season, with Ty Gefahres winning the National Under-19 Colts Cup and Care and Care being named as the Young Player of the Year by the Tkes. Care at school spent the season on fly-half and assisted Prince Henry's win in the Under-18 Vase, as he scored 13 points in an 18-11 victory over St Columba's College from St Albans. The England Clubs Under-18's squad for the Four Nations Tournament, which took place in Belfast, where he competed against Ireland, Scotland, and Wales throughout the season. He was also called back to the England Under-19s bench against Ireland, but he wasn't used.
He was drafted in the senior England Sevens team early in the 2005–06 season, and in February 2006, he made his debut in Wellington in the IRB Sevens series's New Zealand leg. In the quarter finals of the Cup, England lost to France, but the Plate's final defeated Argentina. The squad advanced to Los Angeles, where they defeated Fiji in the final of the Cup, securing England's first ever victory in the IRB Sevens' USA leg.
Care's efforts in Wellington and Los Angeles culminated in his selection for Team England at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, where he secured a silver medal after losing to New Zealand in the final of Einwohner competition, engaging in England's first ever medal in the Games at Rugby Sevens. Care's triumph brought them a special double as the only England rugby player to win medals at the Commonwealth Youth Games and the senior Commonwealth Games.
In between Los Angeles and Melbourne Care, the boy made his England Under-19 debut, two years after being drafted as an unemployed replacement. In a 35-5 win over Scotland at the Twickenham Stoop, he commemorated the occasion by scoring 2 tries. Later this season, he travelled to Dubai, where he was a member of the England squad that finished third in the IRB Under-19 World Championship, the tournament's highest ever ranking. Care began the tournament in his scrum-half role, but he was selected to start at fly-half in the crucial 3rd/4th place game against France, where first choice fly-half Danny Cipriani had concussion in a recent game against South Africa. Care scored a try late in the game, which was changed to bring the game to a halt at 12:12. England clinched 3rd place in the world despite outscoring France 2's attempts to nil.
