“See you soon” – Tom Briscoe’s Leeds Rhinos farewell

Tom Briscoe, at Leeds Rhinos, celebrates with the Challenge Cup trophy.

Tom Briscoe’s career started at Hull FC, but all the trophies he has won have all come in the Blue and Amber of Leeds Rhinos.

He joined the club in 2014 scoring a hat-trick on debut against Hull KR in a sign for things to come.

The reason for this is less than two years later Leeds met Hull KR in the Challenge Cup Final where he scored a record breaking five tries in the decider at Wembley.

That came after he scored in the 2014 final against Castleford and before winning two Grand Finals with the Rhinos scoring a brace in the 2017 Super League Grand Final.

His last trophy came in the 2020 Challenge Cup Final again scoring for the Rhinos.

However, his nine season long stint at Headingley is now over. It wasn’t a fairytale ending as he lost the Grand Final against St Helens but two weeks after he did have a chance to lead Leeds out as captain against New Zealand.

Now the dust has settled on that fixture, his last as a Rhino, he has now said farewell to the club saying “see you soon” suggesting that he will be at Headingley soon enough with a new Super League team with the winger linked with a move to Leigh.

He took to Twitter to say: “After a crazy season and incredible time Leeds Rhinos, I want to thank all the fans / directors / staff and players I’ve met at the club. Your support has been amazing and I’ve created lifelong friends and memories. See you soon.”
