Cian's ten tries in consecutive games set a club record

WE are indebted to club historian Mike Turner for confirming that Cian Tyrer’s four tries in today’s 46-10 win against Cornwall, following his post-war club record-equalling six at Hunslet last week, established a club record of ten tries in successive matches.

The 22-year-old left winger also kicked two goals at Hunslet and another three goals against Cornwall, giving him 50 points in consecutive games – another major milestone.

Reg Farrar (pictured), also a winger, scored five tries in a league match on February 18,1922 in a 28 - 5 victory at home to Featherstone Rovers and, in the next game, scored another four in the first round of the Challenge Cup at amateur club Elland in a 29 – 0 Oldham win.

That record of nine tries in consecutive matches stood for more than 100 years until Cian Tyrer smashed it today, writes ROGER HALSTEAD.

He almost got five today (11 over the two games), but he put a foot on the touchline in diving over spectacularly in the corner just before the final hooter.

Interviewed in the Broadway Suite afterwards by Michael Bradshaw, the Leigh lad said:

“I got my chance and I just do the best I can. In both games, though, I only scored tries because of what my team mates did before I got the ball.”

Watching him today were several members of the Tyrer family, including his grandad, Colin, and his uncle Sean, himself a former Oldham player and the father of Kieran, Cian’s cousin, who is also a young Roughyeds player but who wasn’t in today’s 17, although he was in the provisional 21.

Although Farrar lost his record today he did go on in the 1921-22 season to create the club’s ’tries in a season’ record of 49 that still stands today.
