Tom Learoyd-Lahrs (born 13 September 1985 in Tweed Heads, New South Wales) is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer of the National Rugby League (NRL) competition. A New South Wales State of Origin and Australian international representative forward, he played for the Brisbane Broncos, Canberra Raiders and the Melbourne Storm.
While attending Farrer Memorial Agricultural High School, Learoyd-Lahrs played for the Australian Schoolboys team in 2002 and 2003. 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 State of Origin series after being the 18th man for Game 2.
Despite playing in the second row Learoyd-Lahrs also covered the front row. Luke Bailey once commented that "Learoyd-Lahrs is about 600 kilos". He typically plays an "enforcer" type role similar to the role played by Anthony Watmough and Neville Costigan.
He represented Australia in the 2010 Four Nations tournament.
Learoyd-Lahrs signed on with the Melbourne Storm for the 2015 season. Following the season, he announced his retirement due to ongoing injury.
