If anyone doubts his value, have a look at the 2nd half. He was immense and gives us structure

Career form this season, even missing a bunch of games comes back and is killing it. Frightening for any backman even May.

Today he reminded me of 2019 when he pretty much carried our forward line to Premiership glory despite a shortened, injury laden preseason.

Still think he should have been given the Captaincy
Seen the captaincy mentioned a couple times today. I had no way of assessing the merits of the individuals. I was not surprised Grimes got it based on his seniority and likelihood he would playing another 4 years. But the merits of Lynch over Nank or Vlastuin or a younger player what drove you to favour Lynch?

Been a captain before at the Suns. Don't like Nankervis as captain, and Vlastuin would have been a massive mistake imo.

@St Kevin mentioned that Lynch is a previous AFL Captain. He's a beast on the field, stands up for his team mates and had proven he can carry the team on his shoulders when it's needed.

I also reckon he's the type of gladiator that will rise even higher when he's the Captain.

Epic performance yesterday.

Geez, we just simply need to make finals. The footy world needs to see this bloke dominate the finals series like he did yesterday. In that form, he is in my mind the best key forward in the game.

Lynch's best mark yesterday was not the specky but the one taken at full pace on the wing in a contested situation, (clunk!!!! Awesome!!!).

Yep. And his best piece of play was in the last 30 seconds when he sprinted down from the 50 to be last man in defense and taking possession of the ball as the final siren went.

Yep, and he's pretty switched on .

A few games when it's close and we're up, he's parked himself in the backline and saved a game for us with a mark.

Speaks well, boring, respected.

Too late now though. And it's tough to watch nank and Grimes struggling on field

And that is what Lynch attempted to do but failed to in our loss to Geelong where Interchange confusion had him caught him on wing for the restart and we know how that ended.
