HULL FC winger Tom Briscoe says he will let his play do the talking until he strikes a deal for next year, with the England international currently without a club for the 2014 season.
Briscoe set his sights on an NRL contract for 2014 and beyond, before a deal with Cronulla fell through. He now seems likely to be staying in the UK, with Wigan, Leeds and Salford all linked.
When asked if anything was nailed down for next season, and whether the uncertainty has affected his form, Briscoe told League Express, “No, nothing sorted, I’m just concentrating on the rugby.”
He continued, “It doesn’t affect my form [the uncertainty of next season], that’s to one side and it will get sorted when it’s sorted. Concentrating on playing is not involved with that. If I play well then that will sort itself out.”
And Briscoe denies that the critics have affected his form this season.
“To be honest I don’t listen to the comments,” he added.
“I listen to the feedback from the coaches and the players. Everyone has their own opinions, but you’ve just got to push that to one side and concentrate on your own game.
“I have the same confidence. Tries come when they come, and if I get an opportunity I will score from it. It’s just I’ve not had as many opportunities this season. I’m not sure what else I could do to rectify that, but I’ll carry on working.”
