Fa’amanu Brown will likely be devastated yet proud at this moment in time.
The hooker was given a golden opportunity by ex-Huddersfield Giants nine Danny Levi to be Samoa’s main man in the middle during the crunch time in the Rugby League World Cup.
Levi left the tournament due to family reasons and Brown took over at nine for the semi-final against England.
However, a brutal head clash meant that his game and chances of playing in the final were over in an instant after he failed his Head Injury Assessment.
That said, he has some good news this week with the former Featherstone Rovers superstar set to return to former club Canterbury Bulldogs.
It was at the Bulldogs were things started to go wrong for the playmaker due to injury which saw him turn to the Betfred Championship in a bid to rebuild his career which worked as he joined Wests Tigers for 2022 making 13 appearances for the NRL side.
However, he is now set to return to Canterbury on a 12-month deal according to the Daily Telegraph.
It’s been three years since he played for the Bulldogs when he did so alongside good friend and now Leeds Rhinos star Rhyse Martin.
Assuming that Brown heads to the Bulldogs, it is said that he will be the front runner for the number 14 bench spot as an attacking weapon amongst the interchanges.
