An Indigenous Australian, Bamblett played as a forward and who won the 1982 Morrish Medal, as the best and fairest player in the VFL Under 19's competition. The following year he made his senior debut, against Collingwood in the opening round of the 1983 VFL season, kicking two goals. He made a further 10 appearances that year.
Bamblett trained at Richmond in the 1984 pre-season but they couldn't come to an agreement with Melbourne on a transfer fee. He instead joined West Australian Football League club Claremont for the 1984 season. Clearance issues meant he was unable to play a senior game and upon receiving an offer from Footscray, returned to Victoria during the season.
He kicked 51 goals for Footscray in 1984, to finished second in his club's the goal-kicking behind Simon Beasley. His 24 games that season included three finals. Over the next three years he struggled with injuries and was only able to add a further six games to his tally.
