As reported by News Corp, it is understood the Raiders have held talks in bring Lachlan Lam back into the NRL. This decision comes after the departure of Jack Wighton next season, leaving them little options in their halves.
Lachlan grew up in the Eastern Suburbs from a rugby league family. His father, Adrian Lam, is a former Queensland Maroons captain who appeared in 14 State of Origin games between 1995-2000 and played 146 NRL games for the Roosters across seven seasons.
A member of the club's youth system since age 13, he earned selection into the Queensland U16 team in 2014.
While he was the first-choice five-eighth for the Roosters in 2021, playing a total of 20 games, his spot was overtaken by Luke Kleary and Sam Walker.
His move to England was also marked by his father earning the head coaching role of Leigh.
“Lachlan is a proud local junior and we release him of the view that this is a unique opportunity for him to not only play in England but to join a team coached by his father Adrian,” said Roosters head of recruitment Daniel Anderson last season on Lam's release.
“We thank Lokie for his contribution to the Sydney Roosters over the years and wish him all the very best in the future,” he added.
