Adrian Lam’s son, Lachlan Lam, could be targeted by three clubs

It’s always impressive when a father and son combination continues the family name through rugby league time.

The likes of Leon Pryce and Huddersfield Giants’ Will Pryce, Terry O’Connor and son Jarrod as well as Tommy and James Leuluai show that rugby league does sometimes run in the blood.

And, a father and son duo which, at this time, is thousands of miles apart, are starting to make their waves in the sport.

Father Adrian Lam became a cult hero at the Wigan Warriors during his time as a player and then took the Lancashire club to the Super League Grand Final in 2020.

Adrian is now, of course, head coach of the Leigh Centurions whom are in the driving seat for promotion at the end of the year to the top flight.

Meanwhile, son Lachlan is trying to carve out a career for himself in the NRL with the Sydney Roosters.

At 24 years of age, however, Lachlan has played 31 games in a period of three and a half seasons, with Fox Sports detailing that three clubs could well target the playmaker for a move during this season.

Those three clubs are the Gold Coast Titans, Brisbane Broncos and the Newcastle Knights.

All three clubs have struggled for consistency in the halves in 2022, with Toby Sexton and AJ Brimson failing to click at the Titans whilst Jake Clifford, Adam Clune and Phoenix Crossland have been disappointing for the Knights.

Although Brisbane brought in Adam Reynolds to be their master and guide on the field, the halfback has missed most of the season so far, with back-up halves Tyson Gamble and Albert Kelly injured, leaving a potential opening for Lam to get consistent game time.

Interestingly, Lam was linked with a move to Leigh during the off-season, but those rumours were quickly diminished by his father Adrian.
