In-form prop Kyle Amor says he is relishing the prospect of taking on Leeds for a spot in the Challenge Cup quarter final.

The Saints ace was part of the Leeds squad which lost the 2010 cup final to Warrington but he did not make it on to the field of play.

“To get to a Tetley’s Challenge Cup final is something I have wanted personally for a long time,” Amor said.

“I was lucky enough to go with Leeds and the atmosphere and occasion is incredible and it is something I want to be a part of again, it’s a

dream of mine to play in a Tetley’s Challenge Cup final.”

Saints v Leeds is undoubtedly be the tie of the round, with Amor and Leeds skippers brought together by RLF chiefs to promote the clash at a chocolate-making workshop in Yorkshire.

The pair spent time larking around, trying their hand at egg-making before settling down to the serious business of predicting their sides’ fortunes.

“It was great fun, it’s not something that I’ve ever done before, and I’m not used to being in a kitchen!

“My kids were on hand to see their dad making Easter eggs and they really enjoyed it,” said Amor.

“It was a bit tempting as a professional athlete with all the chocolate around but everyone loves a bit of chocolate!

“I think my egg came out best but I know Kev thinks differently! The real test will come on Saturday at Headingley.”

“The Tetley’s Challenge Cup is a great competition and the magic isn’t lost on us,” added Sinfield.

“It’s too long since we have had our hands on the trophy and to do well in the competition this year is very important to the club.”
