Tom Holroyd Leeds

Leeds prop Tom Holroyd has signed a new four-year contract that will keep him at Headingley until at least the end of 2025.

The 20-year-old has made 29 appearances since breaking into the Rhinos first team in 2018. He has also earned international honours with England Knights.

Leeds coach Richard Agar said: “Tom is still very young in terms of a front-rower but he has showed us his immense promise with his performances last year.

“He would be the first to admit that he still has a lot to build on and improve in his game but he has a great attitude. He has worked hard on himself in the last few seasons.

“We think he can go a long way in the game. I am delighted he has signed his new deal to keep him at the Rhinos.”

Holroyd said: “It is a big thing for me to sign a long-term contract with the club.

“It has been a dream of mine. I want to play for Leeds for a long time into the future. I love this team and want to be part of it.

“Every time I pull on the Leeds jersey it gives me goosebumps because playing for this club is all I’ve ever wanted to do.”

Meanwhile, Leeds are sending Jarrod O’Connor, Muizz Mustapha and Corey Johnson on loan to Bradford for the start of the 2022 season.

The trio have gone to the Bulls in search of regular time in the Championship.

The move is part of a new agreement with the two clubs. They will play each other in a pre-season friendly at Odsal on Sunday, January 23.
