Samoa star Fa’amanu Brown opens up on returning to Featherstone Rovers’ ground in preparation for clash with France

It’s been one hell of a journey for Fa’amanu Brown in the last few years.

The exciting playmaker moved to Featherstone in 2021 hoping to prove himself after an injury hit start to his carerr.

He certainly did that helping the Rovers to the 1895 Cup in 2021 before earning a move to Wests Tigers ahead of this season which has helped him claim a place in a star-studded Samoa side.

He played against Greece in Doncaster’s Eco-Power Stadium on Sunday and has been training at Featherstone’s stadium this week as Samoa prepare for a must win game against France which could see them secure a quarter-final against Tonga.

On being back in Fev, he said: “It’s a surreal feeling to be back here. I was only a year that I was here, but it was a year I will never forget.

“When I found out we were coming here last night, it was a cool feeling to be back.”

He was keen to give the Rovers credit for the opportunity they gave him in 2021: “It’s been quite surreal, a lot of credit to Fev for giving me the opportunity to come here and play consistent footy. A lot of NRL clubs didn’t want to give me that opportunity.

“I can’t thank Fev enough for giving me that opportunity.”

Lastly he wanted to thank their fans for supporting him through the World Cup: “The support from Fev fans since I’ve been back has been incredible especially in Donny, for them to still support me even now, I’ll always be a Fev fan.”
