Briscoe agrees contract extension with Leeds

Leeds Rhinos winger Tom Briscoe has agreed a new two-year deal with the club.

The 30-year-old joined the Rhinos from Hull FC in 2014 and has since gone on to make 161 appearances, scoring 81 tries.

His new contract comes ahead of this weekend’s Challenge Cup Final, a game in which Briscoe currently holds the record for most tries scored in, after he posted five against Hull KR in 2015 and subsequently won the Lance Todd Trophy.

“I am really pleased to have my future sorted, especially in these uncertain times for so many,” Briscoe said. “I am happy with my form since coming back into the team and it is an exciting time to be part of the squad.

“We have seen the young lads come through this season; I enjoy working with them and it brings the best out of me.

“We have got real competition now for the outside backs position and that is forcing everyone to be their very best in every training session. I think it is great for them and great for the team that they bring that enthusiasm into the camp.”

Rhinos director of rugby Kevin Sinfield added: “We are pleased to have agreed a new deal with Tom. He is one of our most experienced players and is a key senior member of our group.

“He has been great with our young players this season since we returned from lockdown. He has led by example with his own form especially after the hard work and commitment he showed to get back from a serious knee injury last year.”
