Wakefield forward Kyle Amor says gaining back-to-back victories was vital after he played a starring role in the Wildcats 24-6 victory over London.
The Cumbrian was part of the starting pack that dominated the Broncos from the off as the hosts raced into an 18-0 lead at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
The win for Richard Agar’s men keeps Trinity on the coat-tails of Salford after their impressive win over Catalan on Friday.
Amor’s strong runs laid the platform for picking up the two points and he is delighted with the outcome.
“It was very important we have got the back-to-back victories because it was something we spoke about during the week and it was something that what we not just wanted but we needed to do it,” said the prop.
“We were pretty happy with the performance and with these victories it keeps in touch with the top eight.
“You could tell how much we wanted that victory with the determination, we knew about the physicality of their pack and how important it was to get our foot in the door early on. It paid dividends in the end but I certainly think London are no mugs, although they haven’t got the points they are not a poor side so we did so well in standing up to them today,” said the number 15.
It was a performance that saw Amor at his best and he was pleased with his own contribution on a soggy afternoon in Wakefield.
“I thought it went really well and I thought there were a lot of us that really stood up and that helps us as a group to convert chances into points. I was happy with my personal performance but there were a lot of others who deserve big credit like Peter Fox and Ali Lauitiiti who played real good.
“Ali’s try was hilarious and he seemed to leave a line of bodies behind him but that’s what you get with Ali. He produces moments of magic like that and it was a great try.”
After 15 rounds of Super League, Wakefield are six points off the play-offs and even though that seems a way off Amor says on a personal note, that’s where he wants to be.
“It’s not something that we have spoken about at all but we are just looking for steps in the right direction. I know we are halfway through the year but we are still very much a new side and over the last few weeks we have started to get our form back.
“We will need to show it again against the so called bigger teams in the coming weeks to keep that momentum going forward and maybe think about the play-offs after that but that is very much my opinion and where I want to finish.”
The former Leeds man wanted to make sure the Trinity faithful understand their importance with them being heard loudly under the new roof in the Fleetmaster North Stand.
“The roof has made a massive difference and the crowds are much bigger than last season. It’s great to see the fans coming out and especially in weather like this and getting behind the boys. It’s like they are an extra man and I’m not just saying that as an old cliché, it really does.
“It’s great that they are right behind us this season and that roof adds that extra bit of roar which is fantastic.”
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
