St Helens prop Kyle Amor has signed a new one-year deal with the club for 2022.

The 34-year-old arrived at Saints from Wakefield in 2013 and has gone on to make 206 appearances for the club, scoring 20 tries.

Amor has won three Super League Grand Finals with Saints and a Challenge Cup. He has won five caps for Ireland and represented his heritage in the 2017 World Cup.

Amor said: “I am over the moon to go around again at this great club. It is a club that means an awful lot to me and it has done since the day I walked into the building back in 2013, so to stay on again is a massive plus for myself.

“My goal last year when I extended my deal, was to go again this year and thankfully I have done that now. I am looking forward to finishing off this season like we know we should and I am looking forward to next year.

“We have an exciting time ahead, with a lot of our older players coming to the twilight of their careers and the exciting youth coming through. It is a real good place to be at the minute.”

Saints coach Kristian Woolf said: “Over the last two years, Kyle has proven to be a valuable member of the team both on and off the field. This year he and Louie (McCarthy-Scarsbrook) have really held their hands up when we were losing some bodies through injury, particularly in our Challenge Cup run.

“Kyle has taken on a lot of responsibility and played a lot of minutes for us this season and he has really proven that he can play that role where needed and when it is a shorter minute role, he can also come on with his experience and give us a steady head in tough periods.

“He has a great work ethic and has worked hard in the pre-season to put himself in a position to be in the team and those sorts of attributes make him valuable to us, whilst he also has a real good personality in and around the group.”
