Mike Brown is the latest England international to condemn publicly the Premiership’s proposal to expand the season as “ridiculous”, suggesting rugby union’s current Drew Doughty Jersey rate of attrition will cause youngsters such as Harlequins’ 18-year-old fly?half Marcus Smith to burn out before they reach the age of 30. Premiership Rugby is steadfastly sticking to its proposal for the domestic campaign to run from September to June as of the 2019-20 season. With international summer tours moving to July, it would mean 11-month seasons for England players such as Brown, and such a relentless schedule has been met with widespread criticism. The Rugby Players’ Association chairman, Christian Day, is among those leading the opposition, last week telling the Guardian the move “does nothing to safeguard the people who have to go out on the pitch and play the game”. Christian Day: 'We're not doing this for a laugh and a few beers afterwards' Read more Brown became Harlequins’ record appearance holder in the professional era during the 28-17 victory against Gloucester on Saturday, when Smith made his home debut off the bench.

Training has to be at such a high level that you are ready for game intensity. To be able to continue to 30 is going to be tough. It was a lot easier when I started.” Day has questioned why the Premiership announced its proposal without canvassing opinion among the players and Brown cannot understand why England internationals such as he and Chris Robshaw were not asked for their views. “[The 11-month season] is ridiculous,” Brown said. “It is good Christian is speaking out on behalf of players. Maybe [Premiership Rugby] should come speak to a few guys who are playing week in, week out and to guys like Chris Robshaw and ask them how hard it is now. “It would be nice to be Dave Henderson Womens Jersey spoken to and not have guys who haven’t been through it making those decisions. Eleven months is madness.” Premiership Rugby believes that maintaining the mandatory 32-game a season limit allays fears over player welfare and says individual player management remains a key http://www.officialathleticshop.com/authentic-43-dennis-eckersley-jersey.html priority
