Player biography


One of the Club’s most decorated and successful players, Mike Brown made his debut for the Club in the Championship against Doncaster Knights in October 2005 (a match in which he also scored his first try).


A graduate of the Harlequins Academy, Brown has been an ever-present in the Club’s most successful period in the professional era.

He started in the 2011 Amlin Challenge Cup final win against Stade Francais and in the 2012 Aviva Premiership final win against Leicester Tigers; the culmination of a season that saw Brown score 12 tries.

Brown’s standout year for the Club came in the 2013/14 season where he was named QBE Man of the Series, RBS Six Nations Player of the Championship, Supporters’ Player of the Year, Premiership Player of the Year and the RPA’s England Player of the Year.

After scoring 13 tries from fullback in the 2006/07 season, Brown was rewarded with a place in England’s squad for the summer tour to South Africa. His first try for England wouldn’t come until February 2014, when Brown scored against France in the RBS Six Nations.

Brown was part of the England sides that beat Australia 3-0 in the 2016 summer tour as well as the victorious 2016 and 2017 RBS Six Nations campaigns. The fullback also represented his country at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, scoring twice in the opening match against Fiji. 

In October 2018, Brown made his 300th appearance in a Harlequins shirt; the first player in the professional era to do so and later set a new all-time appearance record (322) and try-scoring record (91).

Following this historic season, Brown was rewarded with a call-up to Eddie Jones' World Cup training squad.
