The hard-working forward enjoyed the most consistent season of his AFL career to-date in 2013, playing 17 games and establishing himself as an important contributor in the Crows team. Lynch topped Adelaide’s goalkicking with 33.20, despite missing the last two games with a foot injury, which required surgery. Also ranked No.1 at the Club for marks and second in goal assists.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Recruited from St Kilda in the 2011 trade period, Lynch played the opening three games of the season but only three more thereafter. The athletic forward picked up 17 possessions and two goals against the Western Bulldogs in Round Two, but had limited opportunities overall – starting in the green vest on multiple occasions.

Season by Season

Originally selected by St Kilda with the pick after Lewis Johnston in the 2008 AFL Draft (No.13 overall), Lynch also made his way to Adelaide during trade week. The presence of prominent forwards Nick Riewoldt and Justin Koschitzke meant Lynch received limited opportunities at the Saints, playing six games – including five last year – in three seasons. The quick and agile 192cm forward kicked two goals against North Melbourne in round 15 and could also be used in defence.
