Drafted at No.66 in 2013, he played every match in 2016 but that was a one-off occurrence.

Lloyd hasn't played more than 12 games in any of his other four seasons. 

The past two years have been particularly tough. Lloyd consistently showed impressive VFL form through the midfield but struggled to break into a powerhouse Richmond outfit.


He has typically played in attack at the senior level and has booted 69.33 across his career. 

"We’re delighted to have Sam arrive at the club," Western Bulldogs general manger of list and recruiting Sam Power said.

"We recognised Sam as a player who addresses an important need for us, in terms of his ability to hit the scoreboard, and he also provides an extra midfield option for us.

"Sam is a great character and he will be a great fit at the Bulldogs. We’re confident that he’s got plenty of good football ahead of him."
