Hull F.C.[edit]

Briscoe signed for Hull F.C. from Amateur team Featherstone Lions, and made his Super League début in the opening game of the 2008 season for Hull against Warrington at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Following his impressive start to the 2009 season, Briscoe signed a new five-year contract which kept him at the KC Stadium until the end of the 2013 season.[5] Briscoe was also rewarded for his fine form in the early stages of the 2009 season by being included in the first batch of players to be called up to the England Elite Training squad.[6] In 2010 Tom was joined in the Hull F.C. squad by younger brother Jack, who graduated from the Academy.

Leeds Rhinos[edit]

On 2 October 2013 Tom signed for Leeds Rhinos, joining up with his younger brother Luke.

On 16 February 2014 Tom made his début for the Leeds Rhinos, scoring at hat trick of tries against Hull Kingston Rovers at the KC Lightstream Stadium in a 34-6 win and scored 8 tries in his first 10 appearances in a very successful start to his Leeds Rhinos career.

He played in the 2014 Challenge Cup Final victory over the Castleford Tigers at Wembley Stadium.[7]

In the 2015 Challenge Cup Final on 29 August 2015, Briscoe scored five tries, the first player to achieve this at Wembley Stadium, as Leeds defeated Hull Kingston Rovers 50-0.[8] Briscoe was named Lance Todd Trophy winner for his performance in this match.[8][9][10]

He played in the 2015 Super League Grand Final victory over the Wigan Warriors at Old Trafford.[11]

He played in the 2017 Super League Grand Final victory over the Castleford Tigers at Old Trafford.[12][13][14]

International career[edit]

At the end of 2010, Briscoe made his international début for England in a friendly match against a New Zealand Māori side and then went on to face the full New Zealand team in the Four Nations. In 2011 Tom was selected to face the rugby league at Headingley Carnegie Stadium in the first ever International Origin match. He subsequently became established in the England team.[4]
