WHITEHAVEN born Kyle Amor wowed rugby league fans up and down the country on Sunday as he helped St.Helens take the Challenge Cup

The former Hensingham player sealed the deal for the Saints when he buried the ball over the try line in the 78th minute to seal the exciting 26-12 final.

Speaking to St Helen's social media after the match, Amor said: "It's unbeleivable, it's a bit hard to take in really, obviously were all made up with the win but to score it's every kids dream really isn't it.

"To score in front of my kids- my son,my daughter, my wife and my mam and everybody else all of my family, it's unbelievable."

The Challenge cup has been a desire for the club for over a decade last winning in 2008 and after a heartbreaking defeat to Warrington in 2019 the side meant business.

Amor, who began his professional career at Whitehaven Rugby League Football Club was visibly emotional after the historic win.

He said: "I've been so lucky to win so many grand finals as part of this group and to win this, the missing part of the puzzle we've worked so hard for this.

"I was stood on here two years ago heart broken, and we have put it right, we are gonna enjoy the next few days, put it that way."

Saints players took to the changing rooms after the match to honour Amor with chants of 'Marra your the one,you still turn me on , the Challenge Cup is home again.,'- a play on the Euro 2020 chant that was used to honour Gareth Southgate.

The 40,000 person crowd at Wembley also showed their love for the West Cumbrian going in to uproar when the now Saints legend crossed the line in style.

The squad have now gone some way to carving their names into the history books after lining the clubs trophy cabinet over the past few years.
