Player Bio

At A Glance

Player honours: 2nd best and fairest 2014; leading goalkicker 2014.

Brownlow Medal: 2014 votes 4; career votes 7.


Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection
(Gold Coast) No. 11 overall.

Following a breakout season in 2014, Tom Lynch elevated his game to another level, emerging as one of the best young key forwards in the game, as well as earmarking himself as a future captain of the Gold Coast SUNS.

With experience and leadership spending large chunks of the year on the sidelines, Lynch grew as a leader, resulting in his first Club Champion prize – a year after finishing runner up to David Swallow.

Lynch booted 43.33 from 20 appearances in 2015, averaging 14.8 possessions, 6.7 marks, 3.6 inside 50s as well as wielding influence over the entire field with his presence.

The 23-year-old polled in 13 games, with a purple patch from round 17 to round 20 underpinning a brilliant season for the spearhead. Hauls of 46 and 43 goals in the last two years provide a launching pad to elevate his game further in 2016 and could see him enter the very top echelon of key forwards in the game in seasons to come.
