Ryan Brierley (born 12 March 1992) is a Scotland international rugby league footballer who plays as a goal-kicking scrum-half or stand-off for the Leigh Centurions, on loan from the Toronto Wolfpack in the Betfred Championship.
Brierley was born in Preston, Lancashire, England.
Brierley played his junior rugby with local club Westhoughton Lions, joining the Castleford Tigers in 2009.
Brierley quickly stepped up from the Under 18's side to the Under 20's for the 2011 season and appeared in a first team friendly for Castleford early in 2012, scoring a try against York City Knights.
After failing to get an opportunity in the first team with Castleford, Brierley joined Leigh Centurions. Brierley's first appearance for the club came on Saturday 7 January 2012 when he scored two tries in a friendly victory away to Super League neighbours Salford City Reds.
He became a prolific try-scorer at the club, finishing as the club's top try-scorer for four consecutive seasons between 2012 and 2015. He moved into the club's top 5 all-time leading try-scorers with 133 in 125 appearances following a two-try display against Bradford Bulls on 28 February 2016, which was his last match for the club.
Brierley signed with the Toronto Wolfpack for an undisclosed transfer fee in April 2017.
Though born in England, Brierley's family is from Kilwinning in North Ayrshire, and thus he qualifies to play for Scotland at international level. He made his Scotland début in the 2016 Four Nations, scoring a try in a defeat by Australia.
