Round Eight v Port Adelaide
Lynch dominated in Round Eight against the Power, booting three goals in the first Showdown of 2019.
But the 29-year-old didn’t stop there - his prolific game included 20 touches, 12 contested possessions, seven score involvements and six tackles.
A goal to Lynch early in the fourth quarter - courtesy of a smart tap-down by Taylor Walker - gave Adelaide the breathing room it needed to hold off a late Port Adelaide surge.
