IT’S been a tough pre-season for Kyle Amor but he says he wouldn’t have it any other way.
The big prop, alongside his teammates, has been put through the ringer in the Lake District at the Cassius Camp and last week spent time with the Marines at 42 Commando in Plymouth.
“It’s been brutal,” he explains. “We’ve done things we haven’t done before but it has been good. We had to carry our teammates on our backs up a big hill and complete an intense obstacle course. Everyone has dug in, helped each other and it has been great for team building.
“Getting that togetherness going is important because you will need it when it gets tough in games. You learn a lot in pre-season and we have had to work hard for each other.
“Matty Daniels, our head of Strength and Conditioning, never seems to fail us. Every year something is different – and normally harder! It’s been fun but tough and challenging.
“And that is what we want as players ahead of the new season.”
Saints pre-season campaign will see them host Dewsbury (Jan 17) and Widnes (Jan 24) before they open Super League XXI at home to Huddersfield on February 5.
Tickets for the pre-season clashes are now on sale as well as Memberships for the 2016 season.
