Herbert, who was a Queensland interstate representative at the age of 18, came to Collingwood from Mayne in the 1982 draft.[1][2] He made three appearances in the 1983 VFL season, the first in round nine, against the Sydney Swans.[3] The following week he had 17 disposals in a loss to Fitzroy, then lost his place in the team with a groin injury.[3][4] He returned in round 22 to play St Kilda at Victoria Park, which would be his final game.[3]

Back at Mayne, after a stint with West Adelaide, Herbert won three consecutive club best and fairest awards, from 1992 to 1994.[5][6] He was also Mayne captain in each of those years, as well as the 1995 season.[6]

Aspley's senior best and fairest award is named after Herbert, who had been an Aspley junior.[7]
