Leeds Rhinos confirmed that Luke Briscoe has left the club to join Championship side Featherstone Rovers after six seasons with the club.

The winger joined the Rhinos initially in 2014 on dual-registration with Hunslet and made his debut in the league against Huddersfield Giants. After a loan spell with Wakefield he joined his hometown club Featherstone Rovers where he scored 59 tries in 72 games and equalled the all-time rugby league record for tries in 17 consecutive games set by Leeds winger Eric Harris. 

He returned to the Rhinos in 2018 and made an immediate start following his re-signing against Catalans Dragons. That season he scored five tries in ten appearances and earned a new deal ahead of the 2019 season.

In 2021 he was a regular for the Rhinos, making 25 appearances and registering four tries.
