Briscoe given testimonial
Former Great Britain full-back Shaun Briscoe has been granted a three-month testimonial by the Rugby Football League to mark his 10 years in the professional game.
Briscoe, 29, made his Super League debut for home-town Wigan Warriors in 2002 and had spells at both Hull clubs before joining Widnes Vikings at the start of this season.
“To receive something like this is a great honour,” said Briscoe, who has played in 253 games for club and country. “I fully respect the game of rugby league and it has been my life for the last 20 years or so.”
Briscoe’s testimonial will run from April to June next year.
