Biography:

Brown linked up with the Dragons mid-way through the 2024 season after spending the early part of the year with Hull F.C. in the English Super League.

Born in Christchurch, Brown moved across the ditch as a teenager to join the Sharks system where he made his NRL debut against the Dragons in Round 13, 2014.

In 2018, he made the move to the Bulldogs before stints at the Wests Tigers, the Bulldogs again, and the Knights.

His international debut came for Samoa in 2016 where he went on to play eight Tests before earning a Kiwis call-up at the end of last year.

The 29-year-old will remain with the Dragons for the remainder of the season with an option in the club's favour for the following year.
