Tom Learoyd-Lahrs (born 13 September 1985, in Tweed Heads, New South Wales[1]) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the Canberra Raiders of the National Rugby League (NRL) competition. A New South Wales State of Origin and Australian international representative forward, he previously played for the Brisbane Broncos.

Biography[edit]

While attending Farrer Memorial Agricultural High School, Learoyd-Lahrs played for the Australian Schoolboys team in 2002 and 2003.[2] Learoyd-Lahrs' first 3 seasons with Canberra were disrupted by injuries, but in 2009 he discovered his best form and began a series of impressive displays that led to his selection on the bench for NSW in Game 3 of the 2009 Rugby League State of Origin series after being the 18th man for Game 2.

Despite playing in the second row Learoyd-Lahrs can also cover in the front row. Luke Bailey once commented that "Learoyd-Lahrs is about 600 kilos".[3] He typically plays an "enforcer" type role similar to the role played by Anthony Watmough and Neville Costigan.[4]

Learoyd-Lahrs is eligible to play for the Indigenous DreamTime team.[5]

He represented Australia in the 2010 Four Nations tournament.
