England star Tom Briscoe wearing his new Leeds Rhinos kit
Leeds Rhinos have revealed their new look home kit for the 2014 season with new signing England international Tom Briscoe donning the famous blue and amber kit for the first time since his close season move from rivals Hull FC.

The new look shirt features irregular blue, amber and white hoops and features the logo of principal club sponsor Leeds Building Society on the front along with the logos of Berry's and new associate sponsors Global Autocare.
The sleeves of the kit, produced by official merchandise partners ISC for the sixth consecutive season, features the logo of Leeds Metropolitan University whilst the reverse includes two new partners for 2014 with Help Link and PIMS above and below the players name and squad number respectively.
The predominantly white shorts include the logos of Quest Solutions and Leeds Building Society whilst the blue and amber socks have Quest on the reverse.
Commenting on the new kit, Briscoe said, "I think it looks great. It is quite a classic look and I can't wait to put it on for the first time and run out at Headingley Carnegie."
New team mate Danny McGuire added, "The kit reminds me of the Leeds team of the early 1990s with people like Jimmy Lowes, Jim Fallon and a young Franny Cummins. I think it looks great and I'm sure the fans will love it"
