Debut: Vs Catalans Dragons (H) 20/06/2018
Prop Tom Holroyd made his Rhinos debut against Catalans Dragons after an impressive season with the Academy in 2018. He played a further three games in 2019 and in 2020 had a breakthrough season and made seven appearances for the first team.
Tom was one of 13 players that joined the Academy in 2017 alongside five of his Siddal team mates. He grasped his opportunity with the club, finishing his second season with ten tries in twenty appearances. A year later, injury kept him off the field for both the first team and Academy. He started and scored for the Under-19s in their first match of the season against Wakefield Trinity and went on to play for the first team over the next three matches, coming off the bench against London Broncos and Castleford Tigers at Headingley and Catalans Dragons in Perpignan. He played a further two games for the Under-19s but an ankle injury ruled him out for the remainder of the year.
In 2018 after making his Leeds debut he returned to the Academy coming off the bench in their semi-final and in the Grand Final.
At Siddal he won the National and Yorkshire Cup in four different age groups. In 2018, he was also called up for the Yorkshire Academy and England Academy that historically beat Australia Schoolboys on home turf. He has represented England at Under-16 and Under-18 level.
If he wasn’t playing rugby, his ideal occupation would be a model but he would be a darts player should he change sport. His favourite sportsman is boxer Mike Tyson and would buy a farm should he win the lottery.
