Featherstone Rovers have signed Leeds Rhinos winger, Luke Briscoe.
Briscoe, who played for the club between 2018 and 2018 as well as dual reg appearances in 2016 and 2019. In 2018, he broke a long standing try scoring record and went on to score in 17 consecutive games, surpassing Martin Offiah’s record of 15.
A Featherstone lad, Briscoe will join fellow locals Josh Hardcastle and Gareth Gale in a back-line which is full of local talent.
On the announcement of his signing, Luke Briscoe commented; “It’s a massive honour, it’s my home town club, the main goal is to get into Super League, the boys just missed out this year in the last game and my goal is to come here and help us get in to Super league.
Newly appointed Head Coach Brian McDermott commented; “I have worked with Luke previously at the Rhinos and am looking forward to linking up with him again next year. Luke has had a strong season behind him at Leeds and I feel he had developed strongly since his previous time at Rovers. He was a prolific try scorer when he was last at the Club and he will give us some real threat on the flank next season.”
