Amor joins growing group calling for screening

St Helens prop Kyle Amor has joined the growing band of players that believe heart screening at all levels of Rugby League is now something that must happen.

Screening is compulsory at the top level of the game, but not at the lower tiers – something Amor would like to see change.

“Mandatory heart screening only happens at elite Super League level,” Amor told BBC Sport.

“I genuinely believe it should happen across all divisions.”

He added: “Hopefully lessons can be learned and we can move forward.

“I don’t know the finer details but if it could have been a preventable case, then it should have been.

“When you go to play the game you expect to, all barring an injury here and there, to come home to your family.

“That thought doesn’t enter your mind and that’s why it’s a big shock, it’s tragic.”
