Mike Brown frustrated at anonymous revelations surrounding England’s RWC campaign
The fullback feels ‘the trust has been, as you can imagine, completely shot now.’
Mike Brown, one of England’s only impressive performers during the 2015 Rugby World Cup, has revealed he finds it difficult to trust any of his international teammates after several stories from anonymous sources surfaced in the media over the last few weeks.
The 30-year-old has become increasingly frustrated with colleagues from inside the England camp whispering, nameless comments to journalists following the hosts early exit from the Rugby World Cup.
‘If they are going to say something, I think they should put their name to it.’ admitted Brown.
‘That is going to make it even more difficult when we (the England squad) do meet up because I think the trust has been, as you can imagine, completely shot now.
‘But it will come out who it was at the end of the day so it will be interesting when it does because I will be one of the first people to speak to them.’
The Harlequins fullback was speaking after it was revealed this weekend that the team’s kit manager, Dave Tennison, was under investigation by the RFU (Rugby Football Union), and poised for the sack.
Brown could have also been referring to The Mail on Sunday’s report early last month where an unnamed England player questioned Sam Burgess’ inclusion while also slating some fo Captain Chris Robshaw’s decisions.
