Spells in the Scholarship programmes of Hunslet, Leeds and Bradford followed before he joined the Bulls Academy in 2007. Signing his first full time contract in 2009 'Olbi' went on to achieve is his childhood dream of playing in Super League when he made his debut against Warrington later that year, having already represented England at Under 16 level and toured Australia with the Under 18s. A brief loan period with Dewsbury came in 2013 with the fans' favourite going on to make 145 appearances for the Bulls, notching 19 tries in the process, in all competitions. Joining the Vikings in 2017 Tom re-established himself as a regular and consistent performer at the top level finishing the season on 99 Super League appearances.  Away from the game he enjoys Mountain Biking when he gets the opportunity.
