Former Super League star makes retirement admission

Kyle Amor has had a very enviable career.

The prop started his career in 2009 at Whitehaven before being picked up by Leeds Rhinos in 2010.

He spent most of his Headingley stint on loan at Whitehaven and Wakefield Trinity the latter of which he joined permanently in 2012 after only three appearances for Leeds.

After impressing at Belle Vue, he joined St Helens in 2014 and in his first season he won the Grand Final.

He finished his time at the Saints with four Super League titles – though he wasn’t brought off the bench in the 2021 decider – as well as a Challenge Cup win in 2021 in which he scored.

In 2022 he joined Warrington Wolves on loan prior to moving to Championship club Widnes Vikings.

He was granted a testimonial this year and his testimonial clash which will see him represent Cumbria against Wales is likely to be his final game as his career ends where it started in Whitehaven.

“It pretty much brings it all to an end, this is the final sort of show piece event, but within that it brings my career to a close,” he said to North West Evening Mail.

“I have a few mixed emotions around that really, I’m excited, I’m nervous, it’s a huge part of me that’s finished now, but I’m excited, relieved as well there are a whole host of emotions that come with completely retiring.

“It’s a chapter in my life that will close, and I have got to move onto something else, but to do it at home and bring it all together, to bring something that I really care about which is Cumbrian rugby league and put that on the map and showcase it again, it’s a nice fitting way to sign out really.”
