Tom Lynch

Drafted: 2010

Height: 199cm, Weight: 98kg, DOB: 31.10.1992 (Drafted Pick 11 in 2010 NAB AFL Draft to Gold Coast Suns, Local Club: Sorrento FC)         

The power forward just gets better and better and is coming off a phenomenal 2016- Tom Lynch deservedly won his first All-Australian selection and his second best and fairest.

The Victorian started the season on fire, kicking 18 goals in his first four matches and finished equal third in the Coleman Medal with 66 goals. Lynch played every game and was again the League’s best contested mark, clunking 63 in total.

He is durable, a tireless worker on the lead and in the air, and is still in the contest when the ball hits the ground. With the development of Peter Wright making it harder for opponents to peel off and double-team him, Lynch should be in for another bumper season and continue firming his reputation as one of the game’s best forwards.
