12:12pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in Sport
Harlequins and England international full back Mike Brown has put pen to paper on a deal to stay at the Stoop until the end of the 2015/16 season.
Brown, a Harlequins Academy graduate, made his first team debut in 2005, and has gone on to make 207 appearances for the Quins, 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, LV= player's player of the year and the Etihad Airways player of the season awards.
The 27-year-old has also made 18 international appearances for England, making his debut against South Africa in 2007 as a full back and playing in that position in his two most recent performances against Argentina in June 2013.
He said: "I am excited to have re-signed for Harlequins. I love playing my rugby here with this squad and team of coaches, who are all committed to improving our game and winning more trophies.
"There is so much potential and talent at Harlequins to challenge in all competitions and I want to continue to be a part of that.”
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 per cent in everything he does and over the past couple of seasons he has received the recognition he deserves.
"The great thing about Mike is that no matter what he achieves he just becomes hungrier and hungrier for more and that it is what you want from your players.
"I have no doubt that over the coming years we will see the best of Mike in both a Harlequins and England jersey.”
