Lam pleased with French signing

27th July 2019, 15:37 by Neil Foster

Wigan head coach Adrian Lam feels new signing Bevan French will create a buzz among the fans at the DW Stadium.

French, 23, has penned a deal with Warriors until the end of the 2021 campaign and is due to link up with his new teammates on Wednesday.

The Australian joins from Parramatta Eels after the National Rugby League side agreed to release him from his contract.

The New South Wales-born ace is a versatile player and Lam is convinced they have signed someone who will get the home faithful going.

"Bevan is an entertainer and a natural footballer," he told the club's website. "He will get people up from their seat and add even more attacking threat and flair to our game.

"We're putting together a strong Wigan squad for 2020 with the announcements of our recent signings together with re-signing of some of our brightest young players. The squad is in great health."
