NEC Harlequins full back Mike Brown crossed the line twice to help the England Saxons defeat Italy A at Exeter's Sandy Park Stadium on Friday night (2nd February). The final score was an impressive 34-5, although this flattered the hosts.
England struggled in a scoreless opening quarter as the dogged Italians slowed the game down and frustrated the hosts. However, two tries from Brown, one in each half, helped the home side to come away with a victory.
The England Saxons take on Ireland A in Belfast this week (Friday 9th February).
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
