The Western Bulldogs have signed ex-Hawk Lachlan Bramble as a rookie on the opening day of the pre-season supplemental selection period. 

The 25-year-old arrives at the Kennel after three seasons at Hawthorn, playing 30 games after making his debut in Round 14, 2021. 

A dashing utility with impressive footy IQ, Bramble joined training today after officially signing with the red, white and blue this morning.


Bramble averaged 17 touches per game during his 11 AFL games last season.

General Manager of List and Recruiting, Sam Power, was pleased to welcome Bramble and is excited for what he can add to the mix.

“Lachie brings some exciting athletic traits to our program and plays a variety of positions across the midfield and defence,” Power said. 

“He has played 30 AFL games throughout his three seasons at Hawthorn and will provide plenty of speed and dash to our squad.

“We look forward to welcoming Lachie and his family to VU Whitten Oval this week.”

Bramble joined the other draftees and James Harmes at Day 1 of pre-season training today at VU Whitten Oval.
