Exclusive: Leeds Rhinos star’s honesty on playing under Richard Agar

The second name O’Connor is one of the most talked about names in the world of rugby league.

Terry O’Connor will forever be a name remembered in the sport, after playing almost 400 career games for Salford, Wigan and Widnes.

And, now it’s the turn of his son, Jarrod, who came through the Widnes Vikings ranks to play Super League with the Leeds Rhinos for the first time in 2020.

Since that moment, the utility forward has registered 16 appearances, with two appearances on-loan at Featherstone Rovers.

And, O’Connor cannot thank head coach Richard Agar enough for his help over the years in his development.

“It’s been class to be fair,” O’Connor told Serious About Rugby League.

“Obviously people won’t be able to see the progress being made, especially over the past two years.

“However, he’s (Agar) helped me loads in the past two years.

“Even when I played 80 minutes at hooker in my first game, and I’d never played there over the years, he helped me bring my game together and I felt comfortable.

“It’s a really great club to be at and I want to fight for my place here.”

O’Connor has been handed the number 26 shirt for 2022, having previously worn number 24, but will be spending time on-loan at the Bradford Bulls in 2022.
