St Helens: No room for sentiment for Kyle Amor ahead of Whitehaven return

Kyle Amor St Helens

St Helens forward Kyle Amor has said it would be business as usual for the club as they prepare to travel to Whitehaven in the Challenge Cup.

Amor was born in Whitehaven, and could well play against his former club. He was selected in the club’s 21-man-squad for the match.

However, the 34-year-old says there will be no room for sentiment from him.

He said: “I know about that mentality of being up there that you know, you’re there to be shot at. And I remember we played England as Cumbria up there, and the whole town came out.

“And, you know, these guys are not used to having a crowd this big. So they’re gonna thrive off it and you have to respect the fact that they are in the Championship and they are good rugby players.

“We’ve got to make sure that we get there and get the job done. This is nice now talking about me going back to my hometown. But at the end of the day, I’ve got a job to do and we have a job to do at St. Helens.

“That’s to make sure that come May 28th, that we’re off to Tottenham and lifting that cup above our heads. This is the first stepping stone that’s in the way.”

Regan Grace to also return for St Helens

Kristian Woolf has confirmed that Regan Grace will be named in his St Helens squad for the first time this season.

The Wales international picked up an elbow injury during pre-season and has been sidelined ever since.

Speaking during his pre-match press conference, Woolf said: “Regan is going to be named in the squad this week.

“He’s done a great job with his rehab. I thought it would be a little bit earlier to be honest. But we got to a point where we didn’t want to take the risk.”
