Sydney midfield star Luke Parker is tipping the Swans' emerging group of youngsters to take their game to another level and provide the improvement needed for a shot at the AFL this season.

The Swans lost grand finals in 2014 and 2016 but Parker highlighted the potential of the club's sizeable crop of second and third year players, who he expects to step up.

'"To be able to carry the team if some of the leaders or senior players are having a bit of a down game ... to see the next generation come through is really exciting for this club," Parker said.
