Tom Briscoe has signed a new two-year deal with Leeds, keeping him at the Rhinos until at least the end of the 2020 season.

The 28-year-old joined the club in 2014 from Hull FC and won the Lance Todd Trophy the following year after scoring five tries in Leeds’ Challenge Cup win over Hull KR at Wembley.

He also scored twice in their 2017 Grand Final win over Castleford Tigers at Old Trafford.

Briscoe is delighted to extend his stay at Emerald Headingley.

He said: “I am delighted to have my future sorted early in the season and I am looking forward to the next two years.

“On and off the field it is an exciting time at the Rhinos. The stadium is looking great and on the field we are in a period of transition and I want to be part of the team going forward to win more silverware.

“The young lads have been coming in and doing a great job and I am looking forward to working with them over the next two years.

“I am 28 now and coming into the middle part of my career and hopefully my best years are still ahead of me. I wanted to make sure that was here at Leeds.”

Briscoe has scored 55 tries in 113 appearances for the Rhinos.
