Mike Brown meets David Flatman for episode 2
Parenthood, text messages from Eddie, social media, anger management and exercising the demons of 2015. International rugby star Mike Brown is the latest passenger to join David ‘Flats’ Flatman for the second episode of Land Rover’s Open Range: Refuelled series.
Flatman is well suited to his role as motivational speaker, pundit and confidante, so when Mike Brown comes calling, it’s all in a day’s work for the former Bath Rugby and England prop. Brown is a first time parent and juggling his new role with his day job as a professional rugby player. Time is against the Harlequins and England full back who needs to pick up his car, complete with new baby seat fitted, and the trade mark red mist could be just around the corner. Swooping to his recue, Flats knows all too well the challenges parenthood and elite sport can throw up.
Driving Mike Brown to collect his Range Rover Sport, Flats takes the opportunity to get under the skin of what makes Brown tick and discusses people’s misplaced assumptions of Brown as rugby’s angriest man, as well as gaining exclusive insight into how the game has moved on since ‘his day’.
