Widnes-born Tom had trials with Liverpool Football Club before he turned his ambitions to rugby league and went on to represent England at both Under-15 and Under-16 levels, winning the Player of the Tournament award in the Under-16 European Cup in 2009. An excellent organiser, with a strong passing and kicking game, Tom was called up to the England Academy squad in 2011 but subsequent knee ligament damage brought an early end to his season as he seemed destined to make his first team debut. That debut finally came from the bench against London Broncos in 2012 when Tom achieved his ambition of playing for Widnes in Super League, adding an appearance and goal, from Scrum Half in the defeat at Huddersfield in 2013. Further senior experience came Tom's way in 2014 and 2015, including appearances for North Wales Crusaders and London Broncos, but he was restricted to a handful of appearances in 2016.
Career record as at 31st October 2016 36 apps; 13 tries; 3 goal; 2 drop goal; 60 points
