Bombers great Matthew Lloyd has named the five clubs he believes are contenders for the 2020 premiership.

Lloyd has predicted that both of last year’s grand finalists in Richmond and Greater Western Sydney will remain contenders, while West Coast, Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs all have a sniff.

“The Giants can (win the premiership). They’ll be better for the experience,” Lloyd told SEN Sportsday.

“Richmond can go again. I think that the West Coast Eagles can win it. The Western Bulldogs can win it. And Collingwood.”

Despite finishing second in 2019, Lloyd couldn’t see the Brisbane Lions as a premiership fancy.

“I won’t say Brisbane at this stage.”

The Pies have gone the longest without a premiership between the five clubs, with the Giants still waiting for the first flag in their clubs history after debuting in 2012.
