Brown award caps "brilliant month"

Mike Brown has been rewarded for his outstanding form throughout the autumn by being named England's QBE man of the series.

The Harlequins full-back was Stuart Lancaster's best performing player in the Tests against Australia, Argentina and New Zealand at Twickenham.

Flawless under the high ball, strong in defence and a determined runner, Brown has earned an extended run in the number 15 jersey after impressing this month.

The high point came in the series opener against the Wallabies when he was named man of the match as England claimed a 20-13 victory.

"This is a special award as it's nominated by England supporters and I'm very grateful to everyone who voted," Brown said.

"The support at Twickenham is always amazing and this award has capped a brilliant month for me and the team."
