Agoro named Championship One Player of the Week

Mo Agoro of Oldham has been named as the Kingstone Press Championship One Player of the Week.

The winger nabbed a hat-trick of tries in his team’s 38-28 win over London Skolars at the weekend.

He has now scored 17 tries in 15 games this season.

Oldham coach Scott Naylor was delighted with his player’s display.

“Mo was excellent against London, both in attack and defence,” he said.

“He missed a game a couple of weeks ago with a knee problem, but he’s getting some confidence back and looking like his old self.

“He had a good game against London, scoring three tries in attack and standing up well in defence. One of his best qualities is dealing with kicks under pressure, and he was good again in that area against the Skolars.”

Agoro has also received the award for Kingstone Press Try of the Week, with his third try of the hat-trick against London being selected.

“Mo’s last try was excellent – he beat about six people on the way to the line,” added Naylor.

“We were only four points ahead with less than five minutes to go, but we got the ball out wide to Mo, he beat his opposite man and then stepped past four or five other defenders on a 60- or 70-metre dash.

“It was a fantastic way for Mo to finish a fine individual performance. People expected us to get smashed but we managed to get the win and have kicked on from there.”
