Jake Lloyd

Player Profile

Jake Lloyd is a ball magnet, an endurance machine, a clean user of the footy and a calming influence on the Sydney Swans’ half-back line. The former rookie-listed Swan averaged 27.22 disposals per match between 2016 and 2019 and won the club’s 2018 Bob Skilton Medal. Lloyd became the quickest Swan in history to reach 100 senior games when he ran out against Hawthorn at the MCG in Round 8, 2018. He was then recognised as one of the best players in the league when he was selected for Victoria in the State of Origin match for bushfire relief in February 2019. Draft history: 2013 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 15; 2014 AFL Draft rookie elevation (Sydney).

I question why he still needs to be down back. Dawson / Mills are taking more responsibility of kicking in, Rampe always takes a few + Cunningham is back and can do that role ok if needed. There's no reason for him to be back there anymore when he's better served elsewhere.
oLloyd is a winger, was good on the wing early 16 and was good playing more high HB in late 16 all of 17. Playing too deep in defence now. His best football is when he's a linking player in possession chains. If I'm recalling correctly wasn't bad around stoppages early in his career either. Opposition will be more worried about him getting 30 touches if it's between the arcs, they're not so worried if most of the 30 are coming 20m out from their own goal.
85% of touches in defensive half, he's just doing what asked of him so not his fault .... coaching group using him poorly, could be a big boost to our midfield.

I think we have to remember Lloyd is a player who likes to run and actually made his name for himself at our club by doing so. His confidence looks shot right now, and not surprising given he is being played basically on the last line of defence. How the **** does Horse think tucking a running type into the back pocket is going to achieve anything?

Having a really good year after a relatively down 2019 by his standards. Being far more damaging with ball in hand, he's tightened his defensive game even more (he's not Nick Smith, but he's tough to get past now) and he's physically at his best with his running/defensive contests.
