Care is available for selection after the Harlequins have been eliminated from the Premiership playoffs by the Saracens.

Despite being one of the oldest players in the league, the 35-year-old is one of the Premiership players.

Smith was Jones’ first pick outside of the half during the Six Nations, and the prospect of joining him with Care on an international and club level is intriguing.

The former England Sevens player has made 84 appearances for England and for several years he was Ben Youngs’ understudy in a scrum half, often used as a substitute for a shot.

Care was the Premiership’s second-highest scorer in the 2020-21 season with 12 points and was a key figure in their championship title.
