Lamb's forward focus
Brock Lamb admits last Sunday's result was devastating, but he’s turned his focus to Saturday’s clash against the Brisbane Broncos at McDonald Jones Stadium.
“I am good, surprisingly better than I thought I would be,” Lamb said after training on Wednesday.
“It wasn’t what I wanted and definitely disappointing to upset the fans and let down the boys.
"I’ve got another chance this weekend to turn it around and hopefully I can put in a good performance and prove that was just a one-off mistake.”
The Knights five-eighth says it was the sort of kick he loves to take, but things just didn’t go to plan on the day.
“Unfortunately, I kicked a bit of the ground and didn’t get the right kick away,” Lamb explained.
“I will learn from that and everyone has them in their career, so I'm glad to get it over and done with and hopefully I can move forward."
The 20-year-old returned to the NRL side after a match in reserve grade the weekend before.
“I did enjoy going back and making my debut for reserve grade,” Lamb commented.
“I went back and played some good footy and enjoyed it and will try to bring that into my first grade.”
Back in first grade, Lamb said his combination with Trent Hodkinson in the halves continues to grow.
“He helps a lot and makes it a lot easier,” explained Lamb.
“We can read each other without talking which is a key in the halves so it works well.
“He has got a really short kicking game and it is probably one of his best attributes.
“We are pretty close on and off the field… he is very experienced so he does help me and tip me up if I’m doing things wrong.”
The young five-eighth is also looking forward to being back in front of a home crowd.
“I am very excited and I think all the boys, especially myself, are very motivated,” smiled Lamb.
“We are training hard; we’re going to keep pushing for the rest of the week and hopefully get a good performance in this weekend.”
Footy action is back at McDonald Jones Stadium this Saturday with all three grades in action.
