‘Browny is still one of the best fullbacks in the game and he can play until he’s 40’: Danny Care reveals his grief over the impending departure of Harlequins teammate Mike Brown
- Former English star Brown is leaving 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 many ups and downs with both the club and the country
Mike Brown was one of the main reasons I joined Harlequins all these years ago.
We played together for England at the Under 21 World Cup in France and that’s where it all started. We grew up together.
There have been many ups and downs along the way, but it was great and it will be a sad day for me when he signs out of Harlequins. I will miss him.

I have never met a more professional rugby player. To me, he’s the ultimate role model for any young lad who gets through.
Browny is 100% committed to getting the best out of themselves.
He has made a huge amount of sacrifice and personal investment, even paying for his own training on his days off. He takes such good care of himself that he can play until he’s 40 if he wants to.
Throughout his career, he loved to prove his critics wrong. He still does it now. To me, Browny is still one of the best fullbacks in the game and there are not many more reliable in world rugby.
He is an incredible player and an incredible father. Every time he puts on a Quins shirt, he has made his family and the club proud.
