Briscoe set to make decision over NRL switch

Speculation is mounting over the future of Hull winger Tom Briscoe, who is set to announce a decision on his future later this month.

Briscoe, 22, has been heavily linked with a move to the NRL, with Cronulla Sharks now emerging as the favourites to sign him.

His contract at the KC Stadium runs out at the end of 2013, and while he has been offered a three-year deal to stay at the club, a move Down Under seems increasingly likely.

The winger, who came through the ranks at Featherstone Lions, has scored 73 tries in 119 appearances for Hull since his debut in 2008.
