Kyle Amor heads to Warrington on loan

Kyle Amor St Helens

St Helens prop Kyle Amor has joined Warrington on loan for the rest of the season.

Amor, 34, has been restricted to just four appearances this season for Saints, where he has been since 2014.

The Cumbrian is expected to make a move to a Championship club for 2023, but will now bolster the Wolves pack in the short-term.

He said: “To get back playing is a big thing for me.

“I wasn’t perhaps getting enough game time as I would have liked to at Saints and when I got a phone call from Warrington about the opportunity and I could feel myself getting excited again.

“The Halliwell Jones Stadium has always been one of my favourite places to play at. When I’ve played here for Saints the place has been bouncing. It’ll be great to get out there now, earn the respect of the Warrington fans and feel the buzz around the place.

“There’s an opportunity to get into that top six and then who know what can happen from there. It’s about a game at a time starting next week against Leeds. It’s up to us now to kick on and fulfil that potential. It is a challenge and something I’m looking forward to.”

Amor has won four Grand Finals, three Super League Leaders’ shields and a Challenge Cup during his career.

He started at hometown club Whitehaven, before moving on to Leeds and then Wakefield in Super League before joining Saints.

Kyle Amor latest boost to Wolves pack

It’s been a busy week or so in the market for Warrington.

After the departure of forward Rob Butler, they have now added Amor and Thomas Mikaele from NRL club Wests Tigers.

They have also announced the signings of Catalans pair Gil Dudson and Sam Kasiano for next season; while forward Ellis Robson has been allowed to leave to join Newcastle.

Wolves coach Daryl Powell added: “We have been looking to strengthen our front-row options after allowing Rob Butler to leave for Wakefield and I believe Kyle Amor is a quality signing for us midway through the season.

“He will add depth and experience to our squad and I also expect key leadership skills to come from his time at St Helens.

“I’m looking for us to really grow over the second half of the season and Kyle has a perfect opportunity to support us in doing that.”
