From 2009 Lance maintained his form and continued to deliver; playing his 100th game; winning goal of the year and named in the All-Australian Team in 2010 – 14; securing his 2nd Coleman medal in 2011 and winning his second premiership with Hawthorn in 2012. After nine seasons, 182 games and two flags with Hawthorn, Lance decided to play out the remaining years of his AFL career as a Swan – and in his first year, he didn’t disappoint.
Despite taking a few weeks to find his feet in his new side, Lance showed on numerous occasions why he’s considered one of the most dangerous players in the competition and was able to lead the Swans to several victories with his on-field brilliance.
