Jake Lloyd will push to take his game to the next level in 2016.

He's a quality player and he's critical for us, without getting all the outside accolades that others do. And he just gets the job done.

Jake Lloyd's 2015 season by the numbers...

Games: 22
Goals: 3
Total Disposals: 445
- Kicks: 248
- Handballs: 197
- Marks: 96
Avg. Disposals: 20.23
Contested Possessions: 107
Uncontested Possessions: 332
Inside 50s: 52
Tackles: 49

Midfield coach Josh Francou says...

“We didn't a bit of work with Jake in development last year, even though he played all but two or three games in the seniors last year. On the back of Lewis Jetta's (departure) Lloydy becomes even more important. You talk about his outside game, which is obviously his strength, his ability to hit targets and run. We need that to go to another level next year. He had another solid season, we looked at his numbers compared to last year and they were well up across the board. Now it's just about taking it to another level, carrying a bit of slack and filling the hole which Jetts left. He's a quality player and he's critical for us, without getting all the outside accolades that others do. And he just gets the job done so we're looking forward to another big year from him next year."

Season highlight...

Swans supporters witnessed one of Jake Lloyd's many traits early on in season 2015.

Against Fremantle at Domain Stadium, Lloyd produced some gut running to help mount a second half comeback against the Dockers.

In on particular play, Lloyd disposed of the ball effectively on the half-backline only to keep running to be on the end of a brilliant pass from Lance Franklin.

Marking inside 50, Lloyd lined up for goal on tired legs and slotted the goal to put the Swans to within striking distance of the eventual minor premier in an ANZAC Day classic.

He racked up 25 disposals and four inside 50s for the match, a performance which set a solid foundation for the rest of the season.

Lloyd, who was rewarded with a rookie elevation this year, only missed two games for the season and will look to push on in 2016.

Through the lens...
