Mike Brown slams Warren Gatland’s decision to leave him out
The fullback was left out of the 41-man Lions squad
England and Harlequins full-back Mike Brown has hit out at Warren Gatland’s decision to leave him out of the British and Irish Lions squad.
He told The Rugby Paper: “I didn’t take it well. I was gutted.
“I feel I’ve played really well from 2015 onwards so it was really disappointing to get the call, but you can’t let one man’s decision define you.
“It’s really disappointing for guys like myself, James Haskell and Dylan Hartley because we probably won’t get another opportunity.
“I’ve had no feedback about being on standby either, which is also disappointing, so I’m not going to keep up false hopes.
“Instead I’ll reset my goals and concentrate fully on England and the excitement of going on a tough Argentina tour.”
