Richmond has selected Williamstown midfielder Kane Lambert with its third pick (selection 46) in the 2014 Rookie Draft.

The 23-year-old has been one of the standout performers in the VFL competition for the last few years, initially with the Northern Blues, and most recently with Williamstown.

A hip injury hampered Lambert’s start to the 2014 season, however he put together an outstanding finish to the season.

In the Seagulls’ semi-final, he collected 32 disposals, 17 clearances, 15 inside 50s and kicked four goals.

While playing for the Northern Blues in 2013, he won the Club Best and Fairest and was named the VFL’s Fothergill-Round medallist.

“Kane had a slow start to this season, due to injury, but over the second half of the season he returned to his 2013 form, where he had some dominant performances, including in the finals,” said Richmond Recruitment Manager Francis Jackson.

“He competes well, and has a burst of speed to break away from the stoppages.

“He is also a dangerous player around goals.”
