Player Bio

Elevated off the rookie list for 2016, Lambert has proved a savvy pick-up since joining the Tigers as a mature-age recruit.

A VFL standout before heading to Tigerland, he has established himself as a midfielder who can also play forward, where his speed and toughness are valuable assets.

Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Richmond) No. 46; 2015 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Richmond).
