Has been one patch in its existence where GC actually looked like a not bad team and went on a run towards the end of the year.
Lynch absolutely dominated in that period.
At his best he totally dominated the competition, in a side that’s done **** all, and without any real help.


2014-2017 he played 83 games, averaged over 15 touches a game, 6 marks, 2 contested marks (only Hawkins has more), over 2 goals, 1.3 behinds and 1 goal assist. A very basic interpretation of those stats suggest that’s an extra 20 points per game scoring for us, without factoring better team, more freedom next to Jack etc...

I’m so excited by seeing him next to Jack this year.

Yeah back then he had a midfield that could kick the ball to a tall forward ,not the crap we served up in the first half last week .

the word is round 13

has a lot of fluid in the knee that needs to be drained 3-4 times a day. the fluid keeps coming back
That's my balls sack when I think how good our forward line is going to be ...


Sorry for the confusion

Saw him doing what looked rehab work with Shaun Grigg on Saturday morning when I happened to be walking past. His movement looked pretty decent when they had him jumping over hurdles and changing direction to run in between cones. I'd take it slow with him though wouldn't rush him into it.

Think you are getting his knee & his Penis mixed up here
Will Lynch play in the Ruck this year considering his background?
I am Curious,
No doubt a great addition to a great side,
But the lack of a pre season and learning the Richmond game and style will perhaps take time to gel?

Ps:Moderators remove my post if its deemed offensive to the RFC

I don’t think he will play in the ruck apart from maybe the odd inside 50 ball up

And definitely won’t be taking in centre bounces imo

Like you mentioned with him returning from a knee injury we wouldn’t risk him playing that role just with the amount of strain it can put on players

Indeed i think that would be a bad move,
But learning the team plan and how your teammates kick the ball,leading patterns etc will take time,
Eg player x has a great left foot so i head that way?

Yeah it’s definitely not ideal him having a limited pre season but I guess it’s the same for any player starting at a new club or entering the afl system

A few practice games and two JLT games won’t make a huge amount of difference in the long term

I guess all we can do as supporters is trust in the coaching staff and Tom as an individual to do everything he can

Yes will take time, but when it clicks it will be scary good

Fair call i would have thought some JLT games or Intra Practice games would have been a bonus.
But as you say and this is so true in the long term his fitness as the no:priorty

That’s a fair question. Just a strange post to quote with it but hey who am I to judge :p
My answer with regards to the ruck is I don’t think so. I reckon we’ll want to keep him for his entire contract, and with a dodgy knee I don’t think rucking will help with that. I’d rather put in the durable Riewoldt or Balta if we need it.
