Lachlan Lam confirms his future until 2025 in massive deal

Lachlan Lam has been one of the standout players of the Super League season starring for Leigh Leopards under his father’s coaching and that’s understandably led to plenty of transfer talk surrounding the PNG playmaker.

Links to the NRL have been abundant with Canberra Raiders the front runner at one point, but it’s now been confirmed that he has signed for Leigh Leopards until 2025.

Lam joined Leigh midway through last season in a surprise move with opportunities in the NRL limited – signing to play for the team his dad, adrian, coaches in a huge coup from the Sydney Roosters.

After helping guide the club to promotion, Lam has been a revelation this season, arguably the best player in Super League, with the playmaker’s fine form helping the Leopards reach the Challenge Cup Final.

That form has brough about the aforementioned interest, with half-backs in the NRL currently at premium rate due to a shortage, but despite that Leigh have pulled off arguably their best bit of business in years by securing Lam for another two seasons at least.

The stats back up Lam’s superb season, with seven tries and a huge 20 try-assists to his name, and the season could get even better yet for the 25-year-old with potentially personal and team honours set to come his way before the season is out.

He will play the biggest game of his Leigh career next week when the Leopards face Hull KR at Wembley in the Challenge Cup Final, with Lam and his teammates looking to write their name in the history books.

No doubt the pacey playmaker will be one of the favourites to take home the Lance Todd Trophy and will likely be rested for this Sunday’s Super League clash against Leeds Rhinos at Headingley Stadium.

Announcing the news of Lam’s new deal on their twitter page, Leigh Leopards tweeted: “Leigh Leopards are delighted to confirm that Lachlan Lam has signed a contract extension until the end of 2025.”
