Lambert eyes improvement in 2018

Lambert on pre-season and AFLX Kane Lambert speaks to SEN Breakfast about preparing for the 2018 season.

Richmond midfielder Kane Lambert says the Club’s best football is still ahead of it, despite the Tigers breaking a 37-year premiership drought in 2017.

The Tigers returned to pre-season training this week, before their JLT Community Series kicks off against Essendon in Wangaratta on Saturday, February 24.

“We are really excited about the growth we feel we have in our group,” Lambert said on SEN.

“We feel we played our best footy towards the back end of last year, but we also still felt that we could play better.

“Whilst last year was such an amazing year, we still feel that our best footy is ahead of us.”

Lambert, who finished third in the Club’s best and fairest count in 2017, also spoke about the Club’s small forward line that proved a revelation last season.

“There will be elements of opposition clubs that take out some things of the way that we play,” he said.

“I know that we did a similar thing with the way that the Bulldogs play. It will be interesting to see if clubs structure up differently with their forward line.

“We might even do it different this year – whether or not we play another tall or just stay small.”
