AMOR LOOKING TO KEEP STARTING SPOT

posted on 25 June 2013

Wildcats in-form front-rower Kyle Amor is looking to keep his place in the team following his impressive showing from the start against London on Sunday.

Kyle Amor is eager to keep his starting place in the side.

The Cumbrian has had to settle for a place on the bench in recent times but his imposing impact when coming on earned him a well deserved start at the weekend.

The 26-year-old now wants to keep his position for Monday’s game away to Hull FC as he aims to continue his fine form.

“I have been working really hard to try and grab that starting place back, I’m happy just to be in the 17 man squad but I think as a front-rower you always want to try and start games so I was happy that I got my starting place back.

“Hopefully I have done enough to keep it for when we go to Hull but again it all depends on how Rich wants to play things.

“As long as I’m playing I’m really happy but on a personally note yes, it was good for me to get that starting jumper back.”

The former Rhinos man is now in his third season with the Wildcats and is popular amongst many of the fans because of his high work ethic.

After getting his starting place back, Amor now wants to build further and get better each week to try and contribute as much as possible to the team.

“I’m happy and each game and each week at training I always want to try take little strides to get to where I want to go and it’s just little increments every week.

“Thankfully again when the boys around us all play well we tend to go well together, we are a team that can’t afford one or two under-par performances so when we are all playing well then the whole team go forward, so it’s good.”

After the wins against Salford and London morale is high in the Wakefield camp as the team aim to mount another assault on the playoffs.

Alternatively Monday’s opponents Hull FC have lost their last two matches but the former Whitehaven player believes that will make them much tougher to beat.

“We will go there knowing that they have been upset and disappointed with their performances and we’ll be expecting, in front of their home crowd, for them to put a real good performance in.”

“We have got to match that and if we can who knows, we will go there off the back of these wins and really give it to them.”
