Former St Helens and Wakefield Trinity star awarded huge honour

Rugby league is great at recognising its best and longest servants and the sport is once again doing so.

Kyle Amor has been granted a 12-month testimonial by the RFL for his services to the game.

The Cumbrian man started his career at Whitehaven before being signed by the Leeds Rhinos in 2010 who returned the prop to Whitehaven on loan that season prior to a loan move to Wakefield Trinity in 2011.

After three appearances for the Leeds Rhinos, he made a permanent move to Wakefield Trinity in 2012.

Following two successful seasons with them, in 2014 he made the move to St Helens as the club looked to finally end their eight year wait for a Grand Final triumph.

They did so in 2014 and that would become the first of three Grand Finals Amor won during his time at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

He claimed back to back Grand Finals in 2019 and 2020 after consecutive League Leaders’ Shields in 2018 and 2019 to go alongside the one he won back in 2014.

In 2021, he won his first Challenge Cup Final as he got over the line against Castleford Tigers at Wembley and was an unused substitute in the 2021 Super League Grand Final against Catalans.

In 2022, he made a loan move to Warrington Wolves and will join Widnes Vikings in 2023.

After being awarded a testimonial, Amor took to Twitter to say:

“I’m delighted to have been awarded a 12 month Testimonial by the RFL so many people have helped me on my journey in my career – family, teammates, coaches and fans. I hope the RL and wider community will join me and support my testimonial wherever possible.”
