BIOGRAPHY

Hailing from Oldham St Annes, Kyle was with the club from the age of 13 and played in the Academy Grand Finals in 2005 and 2006. His favoured position was half back. Kyle was gifted with electric speed off the mark with an astute passing ability. Furthermore, he soon established a deadly kicking accuracy and was pencilled by many to be the heir apparent to Sean Long who departed the club at the end of the 2009 season.

He broke into the first team in 2008 and scored a corking try in the Saints superb Good Friday win over Wigan. By the middle of the 2009 season Kyle was regularly getting game time as Mick Potter eased him into first team experiences. In just 24 matches by July 2009 Kyle had amassed 141 points in 24 matches including four braces of tries against London Skolars, Huddersfield Giants, Hull FC and Castleford Tigers. His points haul included an impressive 20 points in the massive away Challenge Cup win over Gateshead Thunder at the end of May, 2009.

The 2009 season proved to be a roller coaster season for the Saints. The ride however, ultimately ended in disappointment as the Saints trophy cabinet was laid bare for the first time since the 2003 campaign. Some sparkling performances were punctuated with below par matches as the club shaped a new team for the future and youth was given its head. Kyle emerged at the head of this talented crew and crowned his season with a run in the left centre position at the conclusion of the season. His display in the Grand Final of 2009 will long be remembered as he registered all the points for the Saints that day.

His final season at the Saints was blemished by injury and controversy. Kyle agreed a contract with Bath Rugby Union for the 2012 season and the early season announcement proved to be unsettling for both the player and the club. Consequently, Kyle spent most of the latter part of the season as a spectator. It was very much a case of what could have been for this prodigious talent.
