Lamb expecting halves challenge
nib Newcastle Knights five-eighth Brock Lamb admits the Parramatta Eels’ blossoming halves combination of Corey Norman and Mitchell Moses will be a challenge on Friday night.
“They're really good and they're really fast,” said the nib Newcastle Knights’ five-eighth.
Moses has eight try-assists in ten games, while Norman has five in 16.
On the flip side, Lamb has nine in 19 games, and Trent Hodkinson has six in 13.
“They're making a good combination between themselves but in saying that, that’s what Trent (Hodkinson) and I are trying to do," Lamb said.
“It's important we keep the consistency of the last two weeks and go again this week, so a big challenge for us and the whole team but we’re all looking forward to it.”
The 20-year-old said while there’s plenty of menacing Parramatta players to worry about, his concentration lies with his own job on the field.
“I just want to get my own game right,” stated Lamb.
“The last two weeks have been good but consistency is key in the NRL and I’ve been told that by a lot of people so it’s important to keep going.
“I have been trying to take on the line as much as I can and I’m doing that more each week.”
After back-to-back wins, the five-eighth is eager to finish the season off on a high.
“The last four games are going to be a challenge for us and I guess that's a good way to finish the year, playing some of the top sides,” said Lamb.
“If anything, we are trying to build for the future and play as free and consistent as we can.
“Everyone is trying to put their hand up and finish the year really strong.
“We want to get the wins for ourselves and for the fans so we're training as hard as we can.”
The Knights take on the Eels at ANZ Stadium Friday night, NYC kick-off at 3.45pm before NRL action at 6pm.
