Mike Brown set for career change as he leaves Newcastle Falcons

Reports are suggesting former England fullback Mike Brown is set to depart Newcastle Falcons after just one season at Kingston Park.

The 36-year-old left Harlequins in April 2021 after 16 years at the club and moved to the North East on a one year deal with an option of another year.

However, The Rugby Paper have revealed that Dean Richards WILL NOT activate the extra year following a poor first campaign on Tyneside.

Brown started to prepare for life after rugby in late 2021 when he joined a player management division for the private platform Premier Sports Network.

The 36-year-old has been joined in the new venture by former Quins teammate and Argentina scrum-half Martín Landajo.

Brown currently acts as a strategic advisor for PSN Athlete Management because RFU rules prevent him from working as an agent while he is still a registered player.
