The team at AFL.com.au has named the ‘Best Supporting Actors’ at every club.

These guys might not be a team's biggest name, but the side isn't the same without them.

Here’s who took the gong at the Adelaide Football Club …

Tom Lynch: He doesn't command the external attention of Taylor Walker or Eddie Betts and doesn't possess the size and athleticism of a Josh Jenkins, but Adelaide's forward line would struggle to function efficiently without Lynch. The wiry high forward often links the team's attack with its defence and was responsible for more goal assists (30) in 2015 than any other player in the competition. He also booted 32 goals. Having endured a disastrous, injury-plagued 2014 campaign, Lynch increased his average number of disposals to a career-high 19 a game last year and also averaged seven marks, showcasing his tendency to work up the field to deliver back into the forward line. Only Patrick Dangerfield was responsible for more inside 50s last year. - Harry Thring
