Great to see him drop back behind the ball towards the end for a bit more aerial pressure.
This! His last six weeks his defensive side of his game with repeat efforts and attack on the ball and opponents has won me over. He’s as weird as it sounds and I can’t believe I’m saying this , but bigger than Jack Riewoldt and Jack is a superstar of the game. He’s at Carey level and his best position is clearly CHF. I can’t believe he’s the same bloke I watched for the first three months as his aggression is now brutal and almost bordering on dangerous. I’m actually scared for anybody who gets in his way now bc I reckon he could permanently hurt someone.
I’m glad he’s on our side now and I’m dying to see him play on a dry track.

Whilst a lot of our players and the team have enjoyed the recent run of wet weather football I just cannot help but feel Lynch will be holding of for a dry Saturday afternoon game of footy giving him the opportunity to clunk everything that comes his way.
Probably, but he’s done well for a big man in the wet.

I would love to see him in another dry game though.

The funniest thing now about this bloke is reading Collingwood supporters pain in gameday threads or their own observations thread. It’s all he’s a dud, thank god we missed him, wouldn’t suit our structures etc. Make no mistake, they are bleeding about not getting this bloke. Currently a one eyed, 7 foot yank is their best KF. What a time to be alive.

Surely you saw his aggression in the early days ... it was just fitness and touch letting him down.

The bloke had about 1/4 of a tank the start of the season and I remember a couple of times where he blazed away most of his fuel in a single sprint to line someone up and send them crashing to Jack Viney land.

Has done some good things but still huge concerns he will ruin us. :drunk:
Hawks and Pies certainly dodged a bullet.

In 13 games before the bye, had double digit disposals 4 times and 4+ marks 6 times

8 games since the bye, 6 double digit disposals (last 6 games with Jack) and every game 4+ Marks, not to mention in last 8 games he’d be on track for a 70 goal season.

He’s still only half fit and half integrated into our system. Next season with a real pre-season behind him, watch out!

I actually thought it was more attitude and education bc of his poor development in these areas at the Suns. It wasn’t imo the fitness excuse as he was getting to enough contests. He as I said earlier is naturally gifted and big with speed and even unfit he was still faster than most tall forwards, but never was taught about defence as a forward. This is why the Suns are still rubbish today and you can give them all the first round picks you want and they will never develop them fully. This is why I was sceptical about him, but he’s lucky that our club can get the best out of every player by developing all parts of their game and honing in on their weaknesses to make them bigger and greater. Even his best year for the Suns it was nothing compared to today bc of his brutality and power he attacks the ball and man at. I used to think he was a top line old time footballer who was a mark and a kick and once the ball was dropped and out of his zone he’d leave it for the rest to clean up. We’ve given him more weapons and ammunition to hurt opponents and he’s not using them sparingly anymore, but at every opportunity.

53 goals is Lynch's 2nd highest season tally. (13 more goals until he's reached his seasonal PB.)
With 53 goals this year, Lynch is Richmond's 4th player 199cm or over to 50 goals.

With his new numbers, he says goodbye to the following notable names*:

*Daniel Butler. (Pending his future selections.)
Dave Baxter. (The brother-in-law of Leo Merrett, who's placed below.) (Dave married Leo's sister.)
Robert Powell.
Rory Hilton.
Bill Mahoney.
Craig Lambert.
Leo Merrett. (The great-grandfather of Bailey Smith and related to Jackson, Zach, Roger and Thorold Merrett as well as Glenn Hawker and Jason McCartney.)
Stuart Edwards.
Paul Sarah.
Sel Murray. (Better known at North Melbourne.)
Graham Jacobs.
Frank Bourke. (The Bourke patriarch.)

Sidenote: Interesting how Leo Merrett and Dave Baxter finished with 53 goals.

A new table will be created after his next goal.
