Brown signs new Harlequins contract extension

Aviva Premiership Rugby club Harlequins have re-signed England fullback Mike Brown until the end of the 2015/16 season.

The fullback is a Harlequins Academy graduate, who made his first team debut in 2005. He has since gone on to make 207 appearances for the south-west London club, scoring 67 tries.

He was a key player in Harlequins’ campaign to lift the Aviva Premiership Trophy in the 2011/12 season, picking up the Supporters’ Player of the Year, Anglo Welsh LV= Player’s Player of the Year and the Etihad Airways Player of the Season awards.

The twenty-seven year old has also made 18 international appearances for England. He made his debut against South Africa in 2007 as a fullback and played in that position in his two most recent performances against Argentina in June 2013.

Harlequins Director of Rugby, Conor O’Shea said: “If there is a person that embodies what it means to compete for his club it is Mike. He gives 100% in everything he does and over the past couple of seasons he has received the recognition he deserves.
