Cole Brown

Brown, 22, is returning to the Arrows for a second campaign after debuting for the club last season.

The five-foot-eleven, 190-pound halfback was forced to miss the majority of the 2022 season while recovering from a pair of foot injuries; after returning to full fitness following the first knock, he started a match – and scored a memorable try on his debut – mid-way through the campaign, but cruelly suffered a second injury later that game that would keep him out for the remainder of the year.

Brown was one of two members of the inaugural class of Arrows Senior Academy athletes from 2020 to feature for the senior team in 2022, joining fellow Academy graduate Mitch Voralek in earning MLR game time.

The native of Pickering, Ont. represented Canada on the national under-20 side’s tour to Portugal in 2020, and later participated in Rugby Canada’s under-20 camp following the 2021 MLR season.

Arrow #78 is a graduate of the Ontario Blues junior men’s provincial program and played his grassroots rugby with the Ajax Wanderers. He is currently a member of the McMaster Marauders post-secondary program, earning OUA All-Star honours in 2021 and 2022.
