Amor anticipating tough test at Salford

St Helens prop Kyle Amor is taking nothing for granted about his team’s trip to Salford on Thursday evening.

The Cumbrian expects new recruits to Salford, such as former Saint Josh Jones, to be ready to put in a real performance in their first home game of 2016.

Saints opened their 2016 campaign with a 30-16 home win over Huddersfield in testing conditions, and Amor expects similar weather at Salford.

“Like many teams in Super League have, they’ve recruited really well this year,” said Amor.

“We’ve got to pay respect to them and know that they’re a good attacking side with plenty of threats.

“They defend well. Like Super League really has this year, they’ve stepped up, with the so-called lesser teams spending more of the cap with the TV deal that’s come in.

“I think Salford will be a very tough challenge. It’s their first home game, and they’ll want to make an impression for their fans.

“But for us it’s just about worrying about us, and fine tuning one or two things from the Huddersfield game.

“I would imagine it would be similar conditions, so we’ve got to get ready to roll our sleeves up and get in the mix again.

“Hopefully we’ll do enough to come away with the two points.”
