Mike Brown: momentous season for Quins and England

First published in Local Sport by

HARLEQUINS’ Mike Brown admits he is still getting used to the increased attention on him this year after being named Aviva Premiership Rugby Player of the Season on Thursday night.

It has been certainly a season to remember for the 28-year-old full-back, breaking through for both club and country.

England’s Man of the Autumn Internationals, he went on to scoop the 2014 Six Nations Player of the Championship after scoring four tries in five matches to help the Red Rose finish second.

Such levels of performance have also been mirrored in the Aviva Premiership, including scoring his side’s first try against Bath as Quins kept their title hopes alive by claiming the final play-off spot.

It all resulted in yet another award as he beat Vereniki Goneva, Samu Manoa, Chris Pennell, Jacques Burger and Dan Braid to take the Player of the Season award at the Aviva Premiership Awards at the London Hilton.

“It’s a bit strange to think about the attention I’ve been getting,” he said, “because all I’ve been doing is continue to work hard on the training field and put in performances to win games.

“Nothing’s changed from the last few years. For myself, it’s all been about preparation and that’s shown in my performances.”
