Mike Brown is set to become an agent once his career ends as the England and Newcastle Falcons fullback admits he doesn’t have long left on the field.
The 36-year-old, who moved to the North East from Harlequins in the summer, has joined a player management division for the private platform Premier Sports Network.
Brown said: “As a strategic advisor I am looking forward to expanding this new innovative athlete management division in accommodating athletes both on and off the pitch to reach their full potential.
“It’s great to be working with PSN and good friend Martin Landajo and I look forward to what the future holds with PSN athlete management.”
