Lynch says Eade ‘ right man for job’

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

GOLD Coast Suns stand­out Tom Lynch has backed un­der­fire coach Rod­ney Eade as the man for the job be­yond this sea­son.

The Suns dropped to 15th af­ter another frus­trat­ing loss on Satur­day at home and now sit three wins out­side the top eight.

De­spite calls for Eade to go, Suns co- cap­tain Lynch nom­i­nated the play­ing group as the party re­spon­si­ble for another lack­lus­tre cam­paign.

“All the play­ing group fully sup­ports him,” the key for­ward said. “The play­ers have let them­selves down. He’s coach­ing re­ally well and the play­ers are fully sup­port­ing him.”

A tight loss to Colling­wood on Satur­day, made more frus­trat­ing by the fact they fought back to lead mid­way through the con­test, has the Gold Coast slip­ping fur­ther away from a maiden fi­nals ap­pear­ance.

But Lynch is more frus­trated in his own form and wants his team­mates to win back some re­spect by per­form­ing con­sis­tently.

“We have spo­ken about it for far too long now, but we know we have to keep on try­ing and get­ting rid of those in­con­sis­ten­cies,” he said.

“We are head­ing in the right di­rec­tion.” That di­rec­tion is north this Satur­day, when the Suns meet the Western Bull­dogs at Cazaly’s in Cairns.
