Kamara amazed by Roby and Brown’s Cup displays

Chris Kamara, the TV personality who conducted the Challenge Cup semi-final draw alongside Paul Sculthorpe, enjoyed watching the quarter-final tie between Widnes and St Helens.

Two players in particular caught the eye of the soccer pundit, who used to watch a bit of rugby league during his days at Leeds United as a player.

“You can see the talent James Roby has got in dictating the play for St Helens,” he said.

“He’s a special talent, and I was really enjoying watching him.

“I like Kevin Brown very much as well, and he would seem to be carrying an injury, he was limping a lot, but he looks a very talented player as well.

“His pass out to the left for one of the tries was just an amazing pass as well.”

Kamara felt that the entertainment on show in the game could be compared favourably to that provided by the round-ball code.

“It was amazing, what a fantastic start,” said Kamara.

“The try from Adam Swift – straight away you’re seeing something special in a rugby game.

“Obviously, I like my rugby league, and to be there when someone scores a try like that, going past three or four players, it’s amazing.

“Dropping the shoulder, and the pace and the speed, if you were at a football match you’d liken it to a Messi or a Suarez goal, or a Rooney goal – anything like that.

“That set the game alight to begin with.”
