ADRIAN Lam is finally ready to unleash Blake Ferguson on the Betfred Championship as he faces a conundrum many head coaches love to hate.

The Leigh boss confirmed after Monday’s eye-catching 52-0 win at Batley that Ferguson will make his debut against bottom of the table Workington Town on Sunday.

But finding a position for the Australian star and choosing a 17-man squad for Centurions’ final game before the 1895 AB Sundecks Cup final are selection dilemmas for Lam.

“Blake will definitely play and that’s great he can be added,” he said. “But I don’t know where I am going to fit him in.

“That’s the hardest part of rugby league. But I have communicated well enough, I think, how we are going to do it.”

With Mark Ioane back after a seven-week injury lay-off, Chris Green “on the mend” and the recent arrival of Ben Nakabuwai, Lam has options he didn’t possess at the start of the season.

Ata Hingano also hasn’t featured in the last two games and seemingly unfortunate after a bright start to his Leigh career.

Lam described Leigh’s nine-try rout of the Bulldogs, including a first half hat-trick from Keanan Brand, as “one of our stronger performances this year. I am pleased where we are at but we have got to keep our feet grounded.”

Asked what watching Featherstone boss Brian McDermott might have taken from the game Lam smiled: “Hopefully, he didn’t get too much out of it.

“But the challenge was more about us rather than sending out messages to anyone else. It was to prove to ourselves we have a simple game plan and should be able to execute it how we want to.”

Two-try hooker Edwin Ipape and prop Tom Amone were two of Leigh’s outstanding performers.

Ipape delighted Leigh fans with a salute and theatrical dive to finish-off his second touchdown.

“We talked about try celebrations in training and doing all kinds of stuff,” said the Papua New Guinean hooker. “So, it was good to get over the line.

“It was premediated, I guess. While I was still running, I was thinking about it before I got over.”

Asked about Leigh’s impressive display he added: “We have got another gear to go; we are continually building, week-in, week out. We will be top shelf at the right time, especially towards the back end of the season.”

Workington, coached by Chris Thorman, have lost all their 11 Championship games so far. Leigh have won the last eight matches between the teams since losing 26-22 in June 2013.
