has had a breakout year so far at Box Hill

2017 - 13 games with 10 goals and in the bests 1 time
2018 - 12 games with 30 goals and in the bests 6 times* so far (plus 2 competent games of AFL which went goaless)

hopefully he can keep improving and he might get some more opportunities at the AFL level in 2019, has stepped up to the quality of the second tier competition and performed very well, im hoping he can make another step up in 2019 to start performing at the top level.

Why is there even a discussion around Lynch when we have this guy.

well Lynch is a certainty, this guy is a good prospect but no certainty, until he has a break out game at AFL i will keep the lid of excitement and expectation firmly on..... but he has proven himself at the VFL level and is still 19 so good room for growth yet.

Because he will chewed up and spat out at AFL level, untill his body matures we need someone ready to take the role of number one key forward because Rough is in the twilight and unfortunately Schoe is not quite good enough often enough.

For those that watch him at BH, how is his tank?
Is he a type that could hold down CHF & run all day?
If the kid comes on & Lynch is a Hawk does that give us a twin towers scenario & force Shory out..???

Need to keep a lid on expectations for the kid.

Don't forget that Grimley won the VFL goalkicking too and also played a couple of senior games for the Hawks.

At least he kicked goals in the seniors :p
Difference is the Box Hill watchers tend to rate Lewis. Same was never the case for poor Grimmers.
