Hull FC Welcome Back Tom Briscoe: A Decade Away Comes Full Circle

Hull FC Have Welcomed Back Tom Briscoe After a Decade Away

In a remarkable turn of events, Hull FC have re-signed winger Tom Briscoe, ten years after he initially departed the club. The 34-year-old has returned to the MKM Stadium, where he will join forces with former teammate Richie Myler, who is now the Director of Rugby at Hull FC.

Briscoe has signed an 18-month contract, with the deal seeing Darnell McIntosh move in the opposite direction to join the Leigh Leopards on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

During his time away from Hull FC, Briscoe has enjoyed tremendous success. While playing for Leeds Rhinos, he won multiple Super League titles and Challenge Cups, and even added another Challenge Cup winner’s medal to his collection last season with Leigh.

Briscoe’s Homecoming

Reflecting on his homecoming, Briscoe expressed his excitement, stating:

“It’s really exciting to be coming back to Hull FC, especially with how the club have portrayed their ambition for the future. The move came out of the blue over the last 24 hours, but it’s an opportunity for me to join the club at an exciting period and it also gives me a chance to share my experience with a promising group of young players.”

Tribute to Briscoe’s Contributions

Leigh’s Head of Rugby, Chris Chester, paid tribute to Briscoe’s contributions to the club, acknowledging him as a “top-class professional” who played a significant role in their success last season. Chester also welcomed the arrival of Darnell McIntosh, describing him as an “exciting player” who will bring speed, creativity, and finishing power to the Leopards’ backline.

This move marks a homecoming for Briscoe, who is eager to be part of Hull FC’s journey back to the top echelon of rugby league. With his wealth of experience and proven success, he will undoubtedly be a valuable asset to the club as they strive to reclaim their rightful place in the sport.
