We were delighted to welcome Mike Brown, England Rugby Player and former Wyvern College Student to be our Guest of Honour at Prize Giving.
Born in Southampton, Mike started playing rugby at the age of eight, when he joined his local Rugby club’s U8 team in Salisbury. After performing consistently in several youth championships, in 2002 Mike was invited to train with the Harlequins Academy. He soon excelled, making his debut during the 2005/06 season, and was named Young Player of the Year, before going on to be Player of the Year the following season.
During the recent World Cup, Mike scored two tries on his competition debut. Mike won his 40th international cap in the tournament opener at Twickenham and has been a mainstay of the England team under Stuart Lancaster. “It was amazing to score two tries in my first World Cup on home soil so that is a dream come true and something I will look at with fond memories.”
