Warrington were dealt a huge blow on the eve of the 2019 season with the news Kevin Brown will miss the whole campaign through injury.
Brown, 34, suffered a ruptured Achilles during a training session just weeks out before round 1. Warrington club officials confirm the sad news and stated his recovery time would be around nine months.
Although Brown might not play again this year, he has confirmed that he intends to go around again next season, but it’s unclear whether it will be at Warrington Wolves or not.
“My priority is to recover from this setback as quickly as I can, I haven’t thought about retirement, as I believe I can still play a high level.” Brown said
Whether or night that will be at Warrington, time will tell, with Gaz (Gareth Widdop) here next year I may need to look at my options, but like I said, my priority right night is overcoming my current injury and supporting the boys in 2019.” Brown added.
The 34-year-old’s contract with Warrington expires at the end of the season and with Gareth Widdop coming in from 2020 to partner Blake Austin in the halves, it’s unclear where Brown’s future lies.
Warrington has made 340 Super League appearances over his 17 year career and represented England at an international level on 10 occasions.
