Lam hints at debuting young halfback

Wigan Warriors coach Adrian Lam has hinted that one of his young up and coming half backs could be in line to make his debut this weekend against Catalans.

Teenage half back and England Academy star Harry Smith has been in impressive form in the Warriors younger grades and Lam is keen to give him a run out at the top level before the end of the regular season, meaning he could debut this weekend against the Dragons or the following week against Castleford.

“I’ll try and get Harry a game by the end of the year, if I can fit him in somewhere,” he told Wigan Today’s Phil Wilkinson.
