Leeds Rhinos have confirmed the signing of Luke Briscoe, the younger brother of Hull and England winger Tom.

The 17-year-old Briscoe has signed a three-year contract with the Rhinos after rejecting a new offer from Hull.

“I’m excited at the challenge and being full time will help me reach my goals,” he said.

Leeds coach Brian McDermott said: “We’ve given Luke the opportunity to join us as a full-time player and he adds to an outstanding crop of young players at the Rhinos.”
