Jed Lamb’s next AFL game will be his 50th, which he is set to play this weekend.

Entering his eighth year in the AFL, Lamb will notch his milestone with his third AFL team Carlton.

“It’s pretty exciting,”

“It’s probably taken a lot longer than I would have liked. I’m coming into my eighth year, so I would like to play a few more, but it’s exciting to play 50 – a little milestone along the way – and hopefully we can get a win.”

“I was pretty happy. I had a pretty big pre-season, so I built my tank up and ran a few personal bests, so I play a bit more on the wing now which is nice.”

“I thought I got a bit of the footy, and I used it pretty well. It would have been nice to hit the scoreboard but overall there were some positives to take away and some things to improve as well both personally and as a team.

“I think over the JLT we kicked a pretty big score in both games and last year it was probably one of the areas we struggled with. (The Round One match) was the only time a team has kicked that score against Richmond at the MCG in the last year or so.”

“(‘The pest’) sort of came about last year. Teams these days sort of have running half-backers that set up plays, so when I first came in last year after a bit of knee surgery, I started playing a role to shut down their dangerous half-backs,” he said.

“Around the club I can be a bit of a pest too, so I guess it fits well.”
