Brown voted Warrior of the Month for August

Fraser Brown has claimed the McCrea Financial Services Warrior of the Month award for August, after emerging victorious in the final online poll of 2019/20.

The hooker earned 47.6% of the public vote, comfortably ahead of runner-up and fellow front-rower Zander Fagerson.

It was a stellar return to rugby for the 31-year-old, who was named as one of the club’s co-captains by Head Coach Danny Wilson for the conclusion of the 2019/20 campaign and for 2020/21.

Having earned his 50th cap for Scotland earlier this year, Brown became the latest addition to the Glasgow Warriors Centurions Club in the final match of the season as he ran out for his 100th appearance for the Scotstoun side.

An early try was just one facet of a player-of-the-match performance from the skipper, who became the first Warrior in a decade to achieve all three honours in a single match.

It is the first time in Brown’s seven-year stint at the club that he has claimed the monthly award, becoming the third front-rower in succession to emerge victorious after Fagerson and Aki Seiuli.

“The return to rugby was the biggest thing for me and for all of us,” Brown told glasgowwarriors.org.

“To be able to hit the ground running was nice for me, though, and to make my 100th appearance was a highlight.

“The support of the fans has been massive, too. Whilst we haven’t been able to have them cheering us on in person, the support we get through social media is amazing. Hopefully we’re able to give them something to be proud about, and they’re a big part of why we enjoy playing for this club.

“Our goal now is to come together as quickly as we can as a squad ahead of the new season, make the tweaks we started to make in the Edinburgh games. We spent a lot of time apart, but we know if we all work together and work for each other we’re a very hard team to beat.”
