St Helens haven’t conquered all before them as they were expected to in 2023.
However, Kyle Amor has warned Super League’s title challengers about his former side.
He said that no one will want to play them in the play-offs.
The Saints haven’t lost a play-off game since 2018 against Warrington Wolves.
“Their form has been scratchy. They need to improve but I think they will,” Amor said.
“Having been at St Helens for so long, they’re not quite where they need to be.
“Anybody else in the competition come the play-offs will not want to play St Helens.
“That performance they come up with down in Australia, it is still in there, of course it is, it’s just for whatever reason it hasn’t manifested itself week in and week out.”
Brian Carney also feels that we have seen signs that Saints can win a fifth consecutive title.
This comes as he said: “It’s not just that game against Penrith Panthers either. I always refer to their win against Warrington Wolves, at home, that St Helens win to me was a sign its still in there.”
The Saints can again show what they’re made of if they can defeat Huddersfield Giants in Newcastle today.
