Care fined after arrest

DANNY Care has been fined an undisclosed amount by Harlequins following his arrest for being drunk and disorderly.

The 24-year-old was arrested at 3am on Saturday following Harlequins’ 21-10 Heineken Cup defeat by Toulouse. The England scrum-half was released without charge and paid a fixed penalty fine.

The Rugby Football Union have taken no disciplinary action but Care has accepted a fine from Harlequins for breaking their code of conduct.

“It was a silly thing to do – I accept that and apologise completely,” Care said. “As a professional player, I am on duty throughout the season and need to set a better example.”

Meanwhile, former Wales centre Gavin Henson could be set for a surprise Cardiff Blues debut when they face Edinburgh in the Heineken Cup on Friday.
