Kenya 7s Assistant Captain Collins Injera is keen to take back the World top try scorer record but his first goal is to help the team do well in the ongoing World 7s Series.
On Sunday 22 May 2016 the Mwamba RFC star scored his 231 try against France with his brother Humphrey Kayange providing an assist that made him the Alltime leading scorer, beating Santiago Gomez.
In the 2016/17 season England International Dan Norton has pushed hard and now he is the leading try scorer with 245 tries, one more than Injera.
Speaking ahead of the Singapore 7s matches Injera revealed that his plan is to reclaim the record. He however doesnt want to let the quest for the record to tamper with teamwork.
‘I’m obviously looking to take back that record but I can’t let it affect the way I play. I am always looking to score but the team is the most important thing. If the record comes, then that’s a bonus for me, Injera told World Rugby official site.
Injera is expected to feature for Kenya 7s this weekend as they defend the Singapore 7s title
