Revenge no Cup motivation for Amor

St Helens prop Kyle Amor will not be motivated by thoughts of revenge against his former club Leeds this Friday evening.

Amor was released by Leeds a few years back, before he established himself as one of Super League‘s best props.

He is more mellow about the move now, though that has taken nothing away from his fierce desire to beat the Rhinos in Friday’s Cup semi-final and reach Wembley with Saints.

“A few years ago, I always wanted to show them that they were wrong in letting me go, but after a few years of thinking about the reasons why they let me go, I just treat it as no bigger game than as if we’re playing Warrington or Wigan,” he said.

“It’s always nice when you do beat your old team, but it’s not like I go into the game bitter or angry towards them.

“I’m a St Helens player and all I care about is getting through to the final with this group of players I’ve grown to love and respect.

“The motivation is already there to get a chance to play at Wembley.

“We owe it to each other as players, our coaching staff and the fans to put in a good performance against the form team in the competition.

“We want to put a few wrongs right after two disappointing games against them this season, and ultimately get to the final in August and kick on from there.”
