WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats prop Kyle Amor has revealed that he has had no contact from Leeds Rhinos regarding a potential move back to Headingley at the end of the season.

Amor, 25, moved from the Rhinos and signed a three-year contract at Wakefield during pre-season but Leeds retained an option to re-sign him for the second and third years of the contract.

The Rhinos have until next month to notify Wakefield of their intentions but Amor admits that he has, as yet, heard nothing from Headingley. He said: “[Leeds] haven’t spoken to me.

“Whether they are planning to speak to me or whether they will sort it out between the clubs, it’s out of my hands and it’s not something I think about too much.

“I am just focusing on this group of players and playing well for [Wakefield] and the fans.”

Meanwhile, Amor is preparing for the Wildcats’ trip to Leeds in Stobart Super League XVII on Monday evening.

The Wakefield prop concedes that Rhinos are experiencing a dip in form but added: “They have got that many skilful players that I am sure they will turn it around.

“I wouldn’t write them off yet and they will certainly be a big threat for us.”

“Leeds have got a good spirit in that camp and they have got players who have been through it all before.

“They have got good enough players who can punish you and put points in a matter of minutes so we have to play for the full 80 minutes.”

Conversely, Trinity are in a fine run of recent form and chasing their fourth straight win. Amor said: “We have gelled massively since day one.

“I can’t speak highly enough of the lads. We feel that over the last couple of weeks we have started taking steps in the right direction.

“We certainly played well enough in patches at the start of the year but it seems to be clicking for longer periods of the game.

“We are happy with what we are doing but we know there’s still a lot of work to do.”
