The New Year is here and we are already well into it.

The previous year was a greta one for the England Rugby Team as they went through an unbeaten calendar with 14 straight victories, thirteen of which had come under Eddie Jones, their current coach.

That wasn’t all, as they also went on to grab a Grand Slam, and finish off Australia at their own backyard in a 3-0 whitewash. However, for Mike Brown and the England team, all that is in the past now.

England will be looking to commence their d3efence of the Six Nations from the 4th of February against France at the Twickenham.

The Harlequins full-back insists that for him and his team mates, there would be no soft pedaling as there no-nonsense Aussie Coach would allow no room for that.

“We are using the last year as a stepping stone to be number one in the world,” said Brown. We have moved on from last year and very much looking forward to starting again against France, that’s all we are focusing on,” he said.

Brown also noted that he was looking forward to going back to camp to join the rest of the team as the environment is always such an enjoyable and challenging one.

“I’m massively looking forward to getting back into camp, everyone loves camp at the moment and working with England.

“The environment is very enjoyable and challenging, everyone is loving coming to work and working hard for each other,” he added.

Brown has so far had a total of 55 England caps. However, despite these, his place remains constantly under pressure from other players such as Alex Goode, Saracens full-back. Goode has continued to stir much interest at Saracens who currently are the Premiership and European Champions.
