Leeds have confirmed that Tom Briscoe will see a specialist to discover the extent of a knee injury suffered against Huddersfield. 

The Rhinos winger left the field in the latter stages of the first half at the John Smith’s Stadium, having scored his 11th try of 2019 earlier in the evening.

Despite his absence, Leeds went on to wrap up a comprehensive 44-0 victory over their relegation rivals after tries from Adam Cuthbertson, Briscoe, Brad Dwyer and Liam Sutcliffe, plus two tries apiece for Konrad Hurrell and Ash Handley.

The 29-year-old has been an everpresent for the Rhinos in Super League this year, missing only their Challenge Cup fifth round tie against Workington after being rested.

A statement on the club’s official website said: “Briscoe has had scans on his injured knee following Friday’s win at Huddersfield.

“He has an injury to his ACL but the club will wait for further advice from a specialist to confirm the extent of the injury.

“The club will issue an update once the specialist has given their report.”
