Harlequins on Wednesday announced that Mike Brown has re-signed with the club until the end of the 2015/16 season.
 
The fullback is a Harlequins Academy graduate who made his first team debut in 2005.

He has since gone on to make 207 appearances for the south-west London club, scoring 67 tries.
 
Brown was a key player in Harlequins' campaign to lift the Premiership trophy in the 2011/12 season, picking up the Supporters' Player of the Year, Player's Player of the Year and the Player of the Season awards.

The 27-year-old has also made 18 international appearances for England. He made his debut against South Africa in 2007 at fullback and played in that position in his two most recent performances against Argentina in June.

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

"He gives 100% in everything he does and over the past couple of seasons he has received the recognition he deserves.

"The great thing about Mike is that no matter what he achieves he just becomes hungrier and hungrier for more and that it is what you want from your players. I have no doubt that over the coming years we will see the best of Mike in both a Harlequins and England jersey."

"I am excited to have re-signed for Harlequins. I love playing my rugby here with this squad and team of coaches, who are all committed to improving our game and winning more trophies," said Brown.

"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."
