Loved his high marking; best game so far for CMs and hard competing - without getting drawn into scragging.

agree, his best game for the club. Signs of what is to come. Can't wait for JR to be back to take some pressure off him.

Yep - Good observation Magic. With Jack in, all of sudden Tom only has to deal with one or two defenders rather than three.
Gee if Lynch gets two defenders then Jack will only have one...Jack would think it is Xmas every weekend

Imagine if we ever win clearances and contested ball - how much easier that would be for our forward line! Glaring issue that must be fixed.

Lynch looks better with another tall forward playing for us. Fair enough it was only Chol, but it helped. Lynch also forgot about worrying about his man and just attacked the ball last night - got better as the game went on and looked like he turned a corner even inside his own head. It's another piece of the puzzle that will eventually deliver.

The AFL is getting their wish to make the game a non contact sport.

Woah didnt spot that. Blame the AFL the way they train their umpires imo with the constant tinkering of rules. I feel sorry for the umps( & the MRO & the MRP inconsistencies)

Then the AFL comes out and blames fans as they react to the effects of bad umpiring but fail to look at the problem correctly to address the 'cause' of the bad umpiring. Just react to the reactions of fans. Thus deflecting the true issues of poor management & training of umpires by the AFL.

We see an increase in evicting people and then state no crack down.
Was curious from listening to radio today randomly so I later listened to the last interview by Gil on 3aw. its all over the place on a number of issues, chops and changes. even frustrated I think Neil to the point he kept asking the same question over & over, struggled to answer straight questions but gave cliches'.

I'm a bit late on this topic, but I agree with the above. Was impressed with Lynch. I was thinking of last year's game against Sydney where Jack had the ball on a string, playing up the ground. If he can play like that upon his return, Lynch will only benefit from it.

Are these morons implying Lynch knee'd him on purpose?

If these scumbags want Richmond to disappear/fold then come out and say it! Seems like everything we do gets interrogated.

pretty sure the players understand they might have a mark taken over them ..
.. maybe they all need to sign waivers before entering the field of play .. ffs ...

To be fair most of those comments were sarcastic and more a reflection that the Howe mark should not have been a free kick.

Had an almost game did the big fella can’t wait until he has a proper pre season and starts trusting his body and his routine again.

Finished with 9 disposals 6 marks 3 contested marks 3.3 and 8 score involvements if it’s 5 he’s had s big day

Still for all the hate he’s got this year he’s top 5 in the Coleman off no pre season and learning a new gameplan and team mates games

With regard to him really dominating and ripping oppositions apart, he'll be much better with a full pre season and integration.

Tommy is a write off till next season in regard to him really ripping oppositions apart, he'll be much better with a full pre season and integration.
Not necessarily. Caddy and Prestia were ordinary for the first half of 2017 before integrating with the team. Lynch will be better when Jack returns, but they only have half a season to learn how to combine.

Major knee surgery... no pre season... new teammates.. uncustomary role in a new game plan.... and is top 5 Coleman and top 3 contested marks... lol I think he will be just fine somehow.

Not sure contesting against Rioli and Bolton in the same pack is part of the world domination plan.
