Amor: Lees Has Bright Future

Kyle Amor missed the win over Widnes through suspension - but that didn’t stop him being pleased with the performance of prop Matty Lees.

The youngster came in and took his ‘spot’ in the side that beat the Vikings 38-18.

“Matty is a great kid and I have a lot of respect for him,” Kyle said. “I talk to him a lot and try and pass on little bits of knowledge I have of the game. He has a bright future ahead of him and I really believe that.

“That game at Magic will have helped him and the club. It was on the big stage and he handled himself pretty well too.

“Obviously, my loss was another man’s gain but I couldn’t have thought of a better kid to take my shirt and do us and the lads well than Matty.”

Kyle is likely to return to the side that travels to Castleford this evening, and it’s a game he is looking forward to.

“I don’t think our approach to the game will change,” he continued. “We have had two good wins over them but at the same time we have to respect them. They have a great coaches in Daryl Powell and Ryan Sheridan, and great players, and I have no doubt they will come up with another way of coming at us.

“They rattled us last time and played a little different than we expected but during the course of the game we managed that well I thought and ended up coming through it. They will possibly come up with something else this week so we have to be ready for that.

“We are fully aware the last two games have been good for us but that doesn’t mean anything and we will have to play well. We have to go and back it up and perform.

“If we do our job right and nail our roles then hopefully we can come through it.”
