Adrian Lam open to NRL move

Former Wigan Warriors boss Adrian Lam has now ensured his legacy at their rivals Leigh Leopards as he became the first coach to deliver a Challenge Cup to the club since 1971.

His son Lachlan Lam was the match winner with a golden point drop goal against Hull KR, his first drop goal at the highest level.

He was also a try scorer and won the Man of the Match and the Lance Todd Trophy.

Lam was chased by NRL clubs for some time this season especially Canberra Raiders.

However, he has elected to stay at Leigh but after leading Leigh to the Challenge Cup the question was asked, could Adrian Lam head to the NRL.

“Maybe one day, yeah. I think so. I’m the happiest coach in the world at the moment, too. I love my job that I do. I drive to work every morning,” he said when asked.

“I feel so happy that I’m there and I’m resigning there for another year. I don’t want to go anywhere else. It’s just, you know, some great memories are getting, it’s hard to want to think about leaving to be honest at the moment because of what they’re achieving and I don’t want to go anywhere and I don’t want to even think about it.

“If that opportunity comes up, we’ll deal with it when it does but for now, you know, I’m grateful that we’ve brought some civil way back to Leigh. It’s been a very long time. They haven’t had much to cheer about and, you know, I think, you know, imagine how happy they’re going to be on that drive back tonight or tomorrow morning and they’ve got this, something to talk about, you know, they’re saying we’re not just a bus stop anymore and all that sort of stuff.

“Yeah, just very grateful for what we have, the people around us, and we’ve just got to keep getting better as we go.”

So it seems Lam is here for the time being. In fact both Lams are at the club long term and that is bad news for Super League.
