Lam said: “We’re proud as a club to do things in situations like this with Rob being a hero to everyone, not only to people here in England but right through the world in rugby league.
“For us to acknowledge that in the tough times that are ahead, we wanted to make sure that he felt a part of tonight and still a part of rugby league and whatever we could do to help in that situation and his family and everyone involved in rugby league; we did that.
“We spoke about it during the week to be honest and it was a nice touch from the club and we’re very proud of him.”
