Newcastle Knights five-eighth Brock Lamb appears to be playing his last season with the club with reports the young playmaker is looking to join the Roosters.

Sources are saying that the deal is “virtually done” with Lamb set to join the powerhouse team as veteran Cooper Cronk’s understudy.

He is looking forward to playing and learning from Cronk according to friends.

“It’s a massive opportunity for him to potentially take over at the Roosters when Cronk retires if he works hard enough,” a source told the Newcastle Herald.

If it wasn’t for this move, the Maitland junior was set to be partnering with Connor Watson in the halves.

Lamb has been struggling for form and has played in the NSW Cup for most of the year.

Lamb’s manager Gavin Orr has stated that it was likely the 21 year old will leave at the end of the year.

“Personally, I can’t see him staying,” Orr said.

“At this stage, the Knights haven’t even made me a written offer for Brock.”

Roosters coach Trent Robinson has made inquiries about Lamb, as well as speaking with the play maker earlier in the week.
