No RFU action against Care following arrest

England and Harlequins scrum-half Danny Care will not face any action from the RFU after he was arrested following his team’s 10-21 loss to Toulouse in the Heineken Cup.

Toulouse ended Harlequins 14 match unbeaten streak in all competitions and Care was fined for drunk and disorderly behaviour early on Saturday after Friday’s defeat.

Twenty-four-year-old Care said that he regrets the incident involving alcohol, “It was a silly thing to do, I accept that and apologise completely.”

Care was part of England’s Rugby World Cup training squad but missed the event in New Zealand after he injured his toe in England training.

The scrum-half was reprimanded by England’s Six Nations caretaker coach Stuart Lancaster on Monday by phone and his club have confirmed that the matter will be dealt with internally.

“I totally accept the police fine and am glad that there is no further action on that front.” he was quoted by the BBC.

“I will, of course, co-operate fully with the Quins process.”

“It was a tough game and I was out with the team and friends but should have remembered that as a professional player I am on duty throughout the season and need to set a better example to the fans.”

Harlequins currently lead the English Premiership and Care is expected to win his 100th cap for the club when the Premiership resumes.
