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.

"He won the Six Nations Player of the Championship, Man of the Series in the November Internationals and now quite rightly the is Aviva Premiership Rugby Player of the Year."
