Tom previously played in the Leeds Rhinos Wheelchair Rugby League team, who won the Wheelchair RL Grand Final in 2018. 

After seeing a post on Facebook announcing that open trials were being held at Leeds Rugby Academy in Kirkstall, the hooker jumped at the opportunity to play another form of rugby league, as when he was younger his Cerebral Palsy had stopped him playing contact sports.

His favourite rugby moment was when the Rhinos PDRL team played in a half time showcase at Anfield during Dacia Magic Weekend, where he helped to assist a try. It was an ‘unbelievable’ experience, says Sheridan.
