Ahead of his side’s opening Super 8s fixture against Widnes Vikings, Warrington Wolves half-back Kevin Brown has spoke about the criticism he has received from fans of his former club.
It hasn’t been the smoothest of debut seasons for Brown following his move from the Vikings last December, and he will have to face his ex teammates once again, but this time in the Qualifiers.
The England international understands that Warrington will be the big name in the middle eights, just like Leeds were last year, and they will have to face tough competition from teams looking to pick up a scalp.
“We expect to have a bounty on our heads,” Brown told the Daily Star.
“Everyone knows we have under achieved so we have got to show some character when people are having a pop at us.”
Brown knows he will receive a rather cold reception on Friday night but the former Wigan man said he doesn’t really listen to the jeers.
“They got a good fee for me and I gave good service and left on good terms so to be hated as much as I am now is not great,” he added.
“I gave everything for the club and but if they want to boo me it is up to them, I do not really listen. I will probably need to live by that this Friday.”
