Rugby World Cup 2019: Mike Brown has ‘no regrets’ despite missing out on England squad

My mom says this plugin is huge!

Mike Brown insists he has “no regrets” over the incident with Ben Te’o that could have cost him his World Cup place with England.

The Harlequins full-back was omitted from England’s final 31-man World Cup squad, but boss Eddie Jones refused to confirm whether an off-field incident with former Worcester star Te’o proved the cause.

Brown and Te’o are understood to have clashed off the field during a team bonding outing on a warm weather training camp in Treviso.

The 34-year-old has refused to reveal all on his bust-up with Te’o in order not to unsettle the World Cup bid, but still maintained he considers himself England’s best full-back.

“We’re not in Eddie Jones’ head, so we don’t know what cost me selection, or whether I was going to get selected, whether I was close or whatever,” said Brown.

“I was in the squad of 45 and I have no regrets about anything that happened through pre-season because I gave my all.

“I came in in great shape, in the best shape of my career, I put everything I could into training, I didn’t miss one second of training, even with niggles and things like that. I’m not sure how many other players could say that.

“But it didn’t go my way. Eddie’s the boss, so who are we to argue with his selection. But I’ve got no regrets.

“I didn’t get selected for England all season, so the platform I had to show how much I wanted to play for England and how much I was improving was for Quins. And I think I did that pretty well.
