Mike Brown: England full-back signs new Harlequins contract

England international Mike Brown has signed a new contract with Harlequins, which will keep him at the Premiership club until the summer of 2016.

The 27-year-old full-back, who made his first team debut in 2005, has made 18 appearances for the national side.

"If there is a person that embodies what it means to compete for his club it is Mike," Quins director of rugby Conor O'Shea said.

"Over the past couple of seasons he has received the recognition he deserves."

"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."
