Radlinski explains why Lam’s the man for 2020

Wigan’s executive director Kris Radlinski has explained the factors behind the club’s decision to hand Adrian Lam the coaching job for 2020.

The Warriors announced this evening that Lam will remain in the role next year, following Shaun Edwards’ decision to U-turn on his decision to take over.

Radlinski explained: “With many off-field distractions, Adrian has done well to steady the ship and climb the Betfred Super League table.

“Throughout the season, Adrian has known exactly where he stands. An interim Head Coach was not an ideal position, but he dealt with what was a very difficult situation well with integrity and class.

“With this announcement out of the way, he can concentrate on a strong end to the season and put plans in place for next season.

“We’re happy to have Adrian with us for 2019 and beyond.”
