Stellar season: Mike Brown

Harlequins full-back Mike Brown has been named Aviva Premiership Player of the Season at Thursday's awards in London.

Brown has enjoyed a breakthrough season for both Harlequins and England and was acclaimed by his Director of Rugby, Conor O'Shea, as "a model of consistency, and also a match winner."

The Harlequins man beat a stellar list of players to the award. He was joined on the shortlist by Vereniki Goneva (Leicester Tigers); Samu Manoa (Northampton Saints); Chris Pennell (Worcester Warriors); Jacques Burger (Saracens) and Dan Braid (Sale Sharks).

"It's a thoroughly deserved award. Both for club and country this season Mike has been a model of consistency, and also a match winner," said O'Shea.

"He's a game breaker that changes the course of a match - no-one else has done it on a consistent level in the northern hemisphere this year, but him.
