Amor: We have to avoid the comfort zone

There’s no danger of Saints slipping into what Kyle Amor describes as 'the comfort zone' this season if the burly prop has his way.

Amor, who moved to Langtree Park from Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in ovember 2013 and made his debut in February the following year at Warrington, admitted: “Maybe one or two of us stepped off the gas on the back of our 2014 Grand Final triumph over Wigan Warriors and it is a lesson we must heed in the campaign ahead and ensure it doesn't happen again.”

Reaching the semi-final stages of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup and the play-offs would be considered a successful 2015 season at many clubs - but not St Helens.

Amor said: “We were particularly unlucky to lose both semi-finals against Leeds but that's now history and all we are focusing on is the future and bringing more silverware to the club.”

First target will be the Challenge Cup which Saints last won in 2008 after dominating the competition following the turn of the Millennium.

“I don't think anyone will go and say ' we will win the treble' but clubs like ours expect to be in the running and on a personal level it would be amazing for me if I was a member of a Wembley winning side,” said the former Leeds man.

“Mind you I would have to make sure I was playing well enough to be considered for selection in the first place.”

Amor, a 28-year-old Ireland international, certainly faces stiff competition up front from the likes of Lami Tasi and Alex Walmsley and rising starlets Andre Savelio and Luke Thompson.

He also revealed that one of the big talking points in the dressing room after the Huddersfield victory was about the fact that around the hour mark Saints had four prop forwards on the field at the same time.

“It was a case of 'how good is this ? We are all feeling fresh as a daisy!”
