Tom Briscoe is one of those names that seems to have been around rugby league forever.
Coming through the Hull FC academy to make his debut in 2008, Briscoe made almost 150 appearances in six seasons before leaving at the end of 2013.
In that time, though, the 31-year-old made two finals as well as his England debut – two things he will always be proud of.
“I look back on my time there fondly, I started there and achieved so much at the club, personally,” Briscoe said.
“The first season I managed to get to the Challenge Cup Final in 2008 and I made about ten appearances.
“And then to go on and get picked for England the following season and then to finish off my Hull career at Wembley in 2013 too.
“Obviously, I didn’t win anything but it was successful to get two cup final appearances and to make my England appearances.”
Looking ahead to his testimonial game against Hull FC as well as the season ahead, Briscoe feels the added impetus of Luke Gale will help them to push for silverware in 2022.
“I think they will be good and challenging, they are always a big challenge to face.
“With Galey (Luke Gale) going over there too, he’s a good leader and will lead them around the park.”
