This Auckland native is blessed with all of the attributes to become a world class sevens player.

Tall and strong, with searing pace to boot, there is no doubting the potential Lam possesses. This potential has clearly been identified by the Auckland provincial team, with whom he has already represented in the ITM cup.

Lam is best known to New Zealand rugby fans as a destructive try-scoring force in the New Zealand sevens team where he has been a regular selection since making his debut in 2012.

He was a member of the Blues 2016 squad before injury struck in the preseason, also ruling him out of the New Zealand Sevens team’s Olympic Games squad.

In October 2016, he signed for Super Rugby champions the Hurricanes for 2017 and 2018.

He had limited opportunities at the Hurricanes during 2017 with just one start, but came off a strong Mitre 10 Cup campaign with Wellington that saw him score six tries and start 11 of the team’s 12 matches.

In April 2018, the versatile player signed a two-year extension with Hurricanes, the 26-year-old winger, who has emerged as one of the genuine standouts in this year's Super Rugby, crossing for a competition-leading eight tries.
