Cougar Agoro on brink of another record

Cougar Agoro on brink of another record

Keighley Cougars winger Mo Agoro will join an elite band of players who have scored tries in 11 consecutive games in Rugby League’s summer era, should he score against Cornwall at Cougar Park this Sunday (17 July). 

According to the Rugby League Record Keepers’ Club, only four players have managed 11 try-scoring games in a row since the professional game switched to summer in 1996: Damian Munro (Widnes, 2001); Michael Shenton (Castleford, 2005); Richard Horne (Hull, 2006); and Sam Tomkins (Wigan, 2013). 

Above them sit Rob Worrincy (14 matches, Halifax, 2010/11), Eric Andrews (15 matches, Chorley/Blackpool, 2003) and Luke Briscoe, whose 17-match streak for Featherstone Rovers across 2017 and 2018 equalled Eric Harris’s all-time world record for Leeds set in 1935-36.

Agoro has already scored 22 tries in 10 successive Keighley games this season and is one of sixteen players to achieve this feat since 1996. Incredibly, the Jamaican international has achieved this feat once before – for Oldham in 2014. 

Keighley Cougars versus Cornwall will be streamed live on Our League at 1pm.
