‘Browny’s still one of the best full-backs in the game and he could play until he’s 40’: Danny Care reveals his sadness at imminent departure of Harlequins teammate Mike Brown
- Former England star Brown will leave Harlequins at the end of the season
- Care joined the club after playing with Brown at the U21 World Cup in France
- The pair have shared plenty of ups and downs with both club and country
Mike Brown was one of the main reasons I joined Harlequins all those years ago.
We played together for England at the Under 21 World Cup in France and that was where it all started. We’ve grown up together.
There have been plenty of ups and downs along the way, but it’s been amazing and it’s going to be a sad day for me when he signs out from Harlequins. I will miss him.

I’ve never met a more professional rugby player. For me, he’s the ultimate example for any young lad coming through.
Browny’s 100% committed to getting the best out of himself.
He’s made a huge amount of sacrifice and personal investment, even paying for his own training on his days off. He looks after himself so well that he could play until he’s 40, if he wanted to.
Throughout his career, he’s loved to prove his critics wrong. He’s still doing it now. For me, Browny’s still one of the best full-backs in the game and there’s not many more reliable in world rugby.
He’s an unbelievable player and an unbelievable dad. Every time he’s pulled on a Quins shirt, he’s done his family and the club proud.
