Brown ready to show his class

Mike Brown says he is ready to show why he deserves to keep his England place ahead of the November Tests.

The Harlequins full-back has seen his position came under question in recent months, with Bath's Anthony Watson seen as a more dynamic option, while Alex Goode continues to be mentioned due to his form for Saracens.

However, Eddie Jones has remained steadfast in his support of the 32-year-old and clearly admires his combative approach to the game.

An ankle injury meant Brown was in danger of missing the autumn matches against Argentina, Australia and Samoa but he has recovered well and is set to line-up in Quins' Champions Cup clash against La Rochelle on Saturday.

The veteran clearly feels he has a point to prove and says he is relishing the task of showing he deserves to continue in his country's number 15 jersey.

"I absolutely love playing for England but I don't take it for granted. I know what hard work it has taken from me to get there and know that it will be even harder to stay there," Brown said.

"I've got to keep showing everyone, here at Harlequins and also with Eddie and England, why I deserve to be in the side. That's what I'm set on doing."
