That’s the bold prediction of Adrian Lam, who last week saw the 19-year-old pledge his future to Wigan.

“He’s only 19, he played 80 minutes a couple of weeks ago and that shows where he will get to,” said Lam, the Kangaroos assistant.

Ethan Havard in action against Hull FC

“He’s only had one off-season with us in the first-team, so in a year or two he could be one of the best front-rowers in this competition.

“He’s got a lot of work to do to get there, he knows that, and we’re excited about where he can get to.”

Havard strengthened his promising credentials in the Challenge Cup quarter-final win against Hull FC.

He started in the absence of experienced front-rowers Ben Flower, Tony Clubb, George Burgess and Joe Bullock to injury or suspension.
