Tom Lynch barely had to leave home when he was drafted by St Kilda at No. 13 in the 2008 draft. The key forward only played six games for the Saints before he was traded to Adelaide in 2012. In 2013, he topped Adelaide’s goalkicking with 33 majors, and, in 2016, he kicked a career-high 42 goals. That same year, he received his first All Australian nomination and a top three finish at Adelaide’s Club Champion. In 2018, he continued to win plenty of the ball as a playmaker up front, signing a three-year contract extension. Lynch married long-term partner Courtney in December 2018, and the couple have three kids.
