Lambert was recruited to Richmond Tigers as a mature-age rookie at the end of 2014 before being elevated to the senior list before the start of the 2015 season. Elevated off the rookie list for 2016, Lambert has proved a savvy pick-up since joining the Tigers as a mature-age recruit. Lambert, 25, has played a career-best 20 games in 2017 as a valuable member of the Tigers’ midfield, averaging 21.2 disposals and 3.8 inside 50s.

He signed a two-year contract extension in 2017, taking him through to the end of 2019. He had polled the fifth most coaches votes at Richmond this season up to round 21.

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.
