Harlequins have signed scrum half Billy Fulton on a one month contract following the ankle injury sustained by Danny Care in the Clubs 35-27 victory over London Irish last weekend (Saturday 15th September).
Care's injury, combined with Andy Gomarsall and Steve So'oialo being away with England and Samoa respectively at the Rugby World Cup, meant Quins were left with just Simon Keogh to fill the scrum half position. However, Fulton arrived at the Club earlier this week and will be available for selection for Quins Guinness Premiership match against Leeds Carnegie at the Twickenham Stoop this Saturday (22nd September), kick-off 5.00pm.
This will be the 30 year-olds second stint at Quins, having joined the Club on a short-term contract towards the end of the 2002/03 season. After leaving Quins, Fulton had spells with both Northampton Saints and Bath, before being part of the Agen squad last season.
Earlier in his career, he represented the New Zealand Maori, Otago Highlanders, Auckland Blues and North Harbour.
20 year-old Care is set to be out of action for up to a month.
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
