Etihad Airways Player of the Month for November is Mike Brown
14 December 2009 14:27pm
Congratulations to Mike Brown who has been voted the Etihad Airways Player of the Month for November.
Mike Brown is a natural talent, straight out of the academy coaching side and is well known for his fire and passion for the game on the pitch.
Brown was out of the first XV team for the first four games of the season due to a wrist injury sustained last season, but that probably made him more eager to join in the fray. It is well known that he has been working hard with sprint coach Margot Wells to increase his speed and this has been shown plenty of times this season. His game against Toulouse proved he has the making of an England fifteen as he made jinxing runs and created valuable opportunities for others. Brown's quick hands helped Josh Drauniniu to a try at Northampton and his tackle breaking and ball carrying was vital in the Bath and Worcester games as well as setting up George Lowe's tries against Gloucester.
Only recently turned twenty four, Brown has the makings and the ability to grow into a world class fifteen. Time and patience will be vital in his growth.
Congratulations also goes out to Joe Thompson who voted for this month's Etihad Airways Player of the Month. As well as receiving a limited edition replica Harlequins jersey. Joe has asked Mike Brown the question:
Q: What do you do in your spare time?
MB: When I have any free time I like to catch up with my friends and relax. A lot of my time is spent playing rugby or down the gym so it's always great when there is the opportunity to switch off from rugby and chill out with my mates.
