Top level sport can be so cruel and he was never picked when in his pomp.

I just donít buy this at all - when do you think his ďpompĒ was?

Iíve been a Quins regular for 10-11 years now and it wasnít until 2011/2012 that I thought Brown really deserved to be in the national side. His lack of pace and passing were bigger issues in his first few years. I think people forget how much he improved in the middle section of his career (widely attributed to his work with Margot Wells).

Lancaster picked him regularly from 2012, and regularly at 15 from 2013. Maybe he should have been picked at 15 a bit sooner, but Foden was also really good then. Itís definitely not the case that Brown was past his best by the time England picked him.
