Lam is retiring from the game after 12-years service
Wigan scrum-half Adrian Lam has revealed he will retire from the game at the end of this season.

The Papua New Guinean international, who celebrates his 34th birthday this week, said: "It looks like this is it."

Lam came back from a career-threatening knee injury last year to help steer the Warriors to this season's Challenge Cup final against St Helens.

He is hoping to go out on a Grand Final high before hanging up his boots at the end of a 12-year professional career.

"Hopefully this is my last season playing," he said.

"But I want to remain in the game in some capacity either back home or over here. I have nothing planned yet."

Wigan acting coach Denis Betts said: "I would love to have Adrian on my staff next year. It's always invaluable to have quality around the place.

"We will evaluate the situation here when it needs evaluating."

Meanwhile Betts has dismissed rumours linking the club with bids for Australian scrum-half Brett Kimorley and St Helens' Sean Long saying: "They are great rumours aren't they."
