Danny Brough has been forced to play the waiting game in his bid to break two long-standing Huddersfield season records.
The inspirational Giants captain is being rested for today’s Super League trip to Bradford Bulls.
But with at least two play-off games for Huddersfield to play, the 30-year-old half-back still has time on his side to become a club record-breaker.
Brough’s total of 139 goals (including two drop goals) in 2013 is eight short of Ben Gronow's record of 147, set in the 1919-1920 season.
And his tally of 304 points is 28 short of Pat Devery’s record of 332, set in the 1952-1953 season.
But the fact Brough is sitting out tonight’s game means his current longest scoring streak in the game of registering points in the last 24 matches has come to an end.
Brough’s scoring streak began with a try and four goals in his side’s 32-8 win at Leeds on 8 March.
And Leroy Cudjoe has also lost a record as a result of being held back for next Thursday’s opening home play-off clash against Wigan.
The England centre had been holding the longest run of consecutive appearances among Super League players with 62.
That last match he missed was the Giants’ 47-0 play-off defeat at Warrington in 2011.
St Helens prop Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook now holds the record with 53.
