Player Bio

At A Glance

Player honours: All australian 2016; best and fairest 2015, 2016; 2nd best and fairest 2014; leading goalkicker 2014,2016,2016; captain 2017-present.  
Brownlow Medal: 2016 votes 11; career votes 23.

Junior Club: Sorrento (Vic)/ Dandenong U18
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection
(Gold Coast) No. 11 overall.

The power forward just gets better and better and is coming off a phenomenal 2016- Tom Lynch deservedly won his first All-Australian selection and his second best and fairest.

The Victorian started the season on fire, kicking 18 goals in his first four matches and finished equal third in the Coleman Medal with 66 goals. Lynch played every game and was again the League’s best contested mark, clunking 63 in total.

He is durable, a tireless worker on the lead and in the air, and is still in the contest when the ball hits the ground. With the development of Peter Wright making it harder for opponents to peel off and double-team him, Lynch should be in for another bumper season and continue firming his reputation as one of the game’s best forwards. This season he takes on extra responsibility as captain alongside Steven May
