Kyle Amor makes big World Club Challenge prediction

St Helens are about to take on the Penrith Panthers in the World Club Challenge as both sides who have dominated their respective competitions have the chance to cement themselves as the best in the world.

Coverage is live on both Channel 4 and Sky Sports and speaking on Channel 4, England skipper Sam Tomkins has described it as a “massive” test against “the best of the best” believing the NRL to be a cut above Super League.

He said: “It’s massive. You’ve worked hard all year to get a Super League title and then you get another chance to win another trophy.

“It’s a chance to test yourself against the best of the best which is the NRL.”

Meanwhile, when asked to compare this St Helens side to the won who were pumped by South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2015, former Saint Kyle Amor said:

“We made 20 errors that day and there was a massive turn over in players. This St Helens side is much better equipped. They have continuity in their squad and better players. They’ve been there and done it before.”

He also pushed back against any suggestion that the heat will be costly:

“They’ve been out there for three weeks and have acclimatised to the conditioning. They looked very good against St George last week.”

His former teammates have also spoken with Tommy Makinson reiterating “we don’t need this [to cement our legacy] but we want it.”

Amor went on to predict that Saints would lift the trophy, Sam Tomkins however thinks it will go the way of Penrith Panthers.
