New recruit Kyle Amor is hoping he can help St Helens to glory in the new season.

Saints paid a fee of £50,000 for the prop from Super League rivals Wakefield, with the 26-year-old Ireland international signing a four-year contract.

"It's a club that has been challenging and been in and around big games for a long time."

Amor is one of three new forwards who have arrived to bolster coach Nathan Brown's pack as the club plot to win the title for the first time since 2006, helping to fill the void left by the departures of Josh Perry and Tony Puletua.

Saints failed to reach Old Trafford for the second straight year having finished fifth at the end of the regular season, 11 points back of minor premiers Huddersfield.

"It's a club that has been challenging and been in and around big games for a long time. The players they have got here... it's a team littered with international players," Amor told Sky Sports.

"That excited me to hopefully become part of that set-up and playing and challenging in finals.

"That's one of the reasons why I came here."


As well as the former Wildcat, St Helens have also strengthened up front with the additions of Rich Beaumont, who joins from Hull KR, and ex-Penrith Panther Mose Masoe.

At 6ft 2 Amor is the smallest of the trio of fresh faces, suggesting Brown is pinpointing power up front as the key to success in 2014.

"It looks good, doesn't it?" Amor said on the forwards at his new club.

"It's good for us and good for our team - hopefully we can do our part as forwards and make it an exciting year for everyone.

"It's the forward that set the platform and we've got to live up to that. We've got to lay the platform for the likes of James Roby, Luke Walsh and Jonny Lomax.

"That's our part of the deal and we will definitely stick to it."
