Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: career votes 3.
Draft History: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 11 overall

Hard-working centre half-forward who is just as adept on the ground as is in the air.

Before a posterior cruciate ligament injury required surgery and ruled him out for the final 10 weeks, Lynch had started to assert his physical presence a lot more during his third season.

The 21-year-old leads at the ball hard, splits packs and looks a long-term option for the club in the toughest position on the field.

A tireless worker, Lynch is a future leader of the GC SUNS and already has the respect of every one of his teammates.

Has extended his contract until the end of the 2016 season.
