Kevin Brown out to prove critics wrong

Warrington stand-off Kevin Brown wants to put a disappointing first season with the Wolves behind him and earn a new deal for 2019.

It was an up and down year for Brown after his move from Widnes, as Warrington struggled in Super League, playing in The Qualifiers.

But he still managed to earn a place in Wayne Bennett’s England squad for the World Cup, and he started in the final defeat to Australia.

He said: “To say it was an up and down year is an understatement.

“The expectations going in to the season were massive and personally I didn’t live up to what I thought I could do and team wise was the same.

“It was one of the toughest years of my career rugby wise.

“I’d only ever had quite good seasons and people saying good things and I’ve always said I don’t listen to comments but some of it gets through to you.

“When I came here, I wanted to win trophies.

“It’s the last year of my contract and I need to perform my best to feel like I’ve done the club proud and hopefully I can do my job and everyone else does theirs.

“With the coaches we’ve got and the talent in the team, we can go and not only improve, but be challenging for trophies this year.”

Brown made 22 appearances for Warrington in his first season, tasting victory on his debut against Brisbane Broncos in the World Club Series.

They have won the last eight games that Brown has played.

The former Wigan and Huddersfield man joined up for pre-season this week following a prolonged break after the World Cup final.

He and his team-mates hit the field on Thursday morning before a short trip to Peckforton Castle, where they took part in a number of team-building activities ahead of the club’s media day to preview the new season.
