Harlequins are confident that Danny Care will recover from his stomach muscle injury in time for England's tour to Argentina.

Care has been ruled out of Saturday's finale to the Aviva Premiership season at Northampton because of an oblique problem sustained against Wasps eight days earlier.

The Quins captain lasted only 24 minutes against the league leaders before being replaced, but he should be fit in time to face the Pumas over two Tests next month.

"Danny is expected to make a full recovery ahead of England's tour to Argentina," a club statement read.
