England’s professional rugby league football player, Kevin Brown announced he’d be retiring from the international rugby squad with immediate effect. In Brown’s words, he feels that he made a call to withdraw from team England at the right time.
Kevin, who is now 33, started his career with Wigan Warriors. The next stop for Brown was a three-year contract with Huddersfield Giants. The Saint Helens’ rugby player stayed with the club until 2012 after extending his contract for three more years.
After joining Widnes Vikings in 2013, Brown was in the 2014 Super League Dream Team. This was the first time only English players were in the Dream Team. During the Widnes Vikings era, Brown was named a captain for the 2015 season. In 2016, Brown signed a two-year contract with Wigan Warriors once again.
Reflecting on his greatest success, Kevin said that beating Tonga in the Rugby League World Cup 2017 semi-final was the best bit of his career. The Wigan Warriors’ half-back said he has been lucky to play for England for seven years – from 2010 to 2017. He is also aware that he cannot play indefinitely.
The rugby player is not worried that England will suffer in any way after his departure from the National Rugby League. Brown said, “There’s some fantastic players that deserve a chance now.”
Brown and England head coach Wayne Bennett discussed Brown’s international retirement. Commenting on Brown’s qualities as a player, Bennett said, “Kevin has been the ultimate professional and shown a great attitude and an unwavering commitment to the England programme.” Bennett then added, “We fully understand the reasons behind his decision and wish him the very best.”
England international Kevin Brown has been a favourite of the best betting sites for years. However, the time has come for Brown’s international retirement. Even though he won’t be playing for England anymore, he’ll always be England’s number one fan.
Brown said, “I’m the biggest England fan, and I’m proud that I’ve been part of that journey with them. Every time they play I’ll be cheering them on, and I know they’ll do well, they are a fantastic group, and I’ll always support England with my little lad and my family.”
