In­jury ends Lynch’s sea­son

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

DEAN Solomon’s stint as care­taker coach has suf­fered an im­me­di­ate blow, with Suns skip­per Tom Lynch’s sea­son over be­cause of a knee in­jury.

Lynch in­jured his PCL play­ing against Fre­man­tle at Su­bi­aco Oval last Satur­day.

Suns foot­ball man­ager Mar­cus Ashcroft said tests had con­firmed the worst for the reign­ing club cham­pion.

“Usual cir­cum­stances would see Tom miss about a month of footy with the in­jury, but with just three matches re­main­ing Tom won’t re­turn,” he said.

Lynch has looked to be ham­pered by in­jury all year. The Suns had pre­vi­ously re­vealed a back in­jury was re­strict­ing the 2017 All Aus­tralian.

De­spite be­ing be­low his best he has still booted 44 goals for the sea­son.

Lynch’s knee was heav­ily strapped yes­ter­day when he ar­rived at the club with the rest of the play­ing group to be told of coach Rod­ney Eade’s sack­ing.
