Adrian Lam: I knew I was going to come back here one day

Wigan Warriors hosted their first press conference with their two new head coaches, Adrain Lam and Shaun Edwards.

Lam, 47, will be in charge for a single season from 2019 and Edwards, 51, will take the reigns from 2020 onwards.

The interesting appointment left many people eager to ask questions as to how this decision will realistically facilitate itself.

On the why he decided to take the job, despite it only being a year long position, Lam expressed his full understanding of his interim role and looked forward to handing over to Edwards.

On his relationship with the Warriors he said, “I always knew I would come back here one day, and here it is”

He also expressed that he “had some of the best times of my life” at Wigan and is eager to get back to the club he holds in such high regard.

On his intentions with Wigan, he told how he wanted to “fill the stadiums” and “bring people to the game” – his way of doing so being introducing an attacking style of play.

On this Lam stated, “I can make a difference here in 12 months…throw a bit more attack in the team and there will be a difference in the style of footy here.”

Wane will remain in charge for the rest of the 2018 season, before Lam takes over in 2019 for what will be an interesting 12 month tenure.

All before club legend Edwards returns home in 2020.
