Richmond’s mature-age debutant Sam Lloyd stood out like a beacon on an otherwise dull night for the Tigers in their 38-point loss to Collingwood at the MCG last Friday.

The 24-year-old small forward picked up 22 disposals and kicked three goals in a highly-impressive first-up display at the game’s highest level.

“I thought he was terrific,” said Richmond coach Damien Hardwick in his post-match press conference.

“He’s 24 years of age, he’s a journeyman.

“It’s really exciting for him.  He’s a quality young lad and I think he’ll gain enormous confidence.”

Lloyd, who kicked 100 goals in a season for NSW country club Deniliquin, as a 20-year-old in 2010, and 38 goals in 17 games for VFL club Frankston last year, was taken by Richmond with its third pick (No. 66 overall) in the 2013 AFL National Draft.
