Harlequins boss Conor O'Shea says that Danny Care is a world class scrum-half, following the side's win over Leicester Tigers in the Aviva Premiership.

Conor O'Shea has described Danny Care's performance against Leicester Tigers as "world class".

The scrum-half created a try in the second half for Harlequins, helping the side return to the top of the Aviva Premiership table with a 25-21 win.

Quins' director of rugby told Sky Sports News: "Danny Care was world class out there tonight. You're fortunate to be able to watch those types of moments.

"From [England head coach] Stuart Lancaster's point of view, he must be thinking, 'I've got [Leicester's] Ben Youngs and Danny Care, how lucky am I?'

"I'm always going to back my own player and Danny's outstanding. From Stuart Lancaster's point of view, there are two Lions-standard scrum-halves competing. I think England are lucky to be in a position like that."

Care has been named as a replacement in England two matches so far in this year's Six Nations tournament.
