A new look Sydney Roosters outfit will take to the field at Central Coast Stadium on Saturday night, and the left edge are feeling good ahead of kick off.
Lachlan Lam is set to get his first taste of first grade football starting at five-eighth, and has a pretty handy and first grade experienced winger to work with on the left edge in Matt Ikuvalu.
Lam has played all his junior football at the Club, which makes tomorrow night a special occasion for the young half.
"More than anything, I'm just super excited," Lam said of his feelings leading into the match.
"I've worked really hard this pre-season, and tomorrow is my chance to test everything I've added to my game."
He'll partner Brock Lamb in the halves, who will get his first taste of action wearing the Roosters colours.
Ikuvalu commented on the unique halves combination, saying that it could be the perfect match.
"Brock is creative, but he's also structured.
"Lachie Lam is creative too, but he's a running half.
"I think they'll compliment each other really well and I'm excited to see what they come up with."
On top of seeing what they come up with, Ikuvalu will have the luxury of being on the receiving end of what Lam comes up with as partners on the left edge.
Ikuvalu said in order for their combination to work, he would have to be prepared to run alongside the running half.
"If he makes a break, you can guarantee that I'll be right there behind him in support."
Lam weighed in on his combination with Ikuvalu, and says that it's a long time coming for the pair to be on the field together in the first grade arena.
"We played some footy together last year for the Wyong Roos and we were both first in for pre-season for this year.
"I'm excited to get there with Matty again, he's a good mate and I like playing footy with him."
We asked Ikuvalu about the unique team that is taking to the field tomorrow night, and there was nothing but praise from the young winger.
While he claims that the team is full of underdogs, they're also a team capable of doing some damage.
"I'm confident with this team that's taking the field tomorrow night.
"We've trained against the top team throughout the pre-season and now we're ready to go out there and show what we can do.
"People might write us off, but we're confident we can go out there and show what we've got."
