Lynch likely to leave according to former coach

Former Gold Coast Suns coach Rodney Eade concedes star forward Tom Lynch will likely leave the club.

Lynch was ruled out for the remainder of the 2018 season after succumbing to a PCL injury that has plagued him for the majority of the year.

Eade told Afternoons criticism of Lynch by “so called ex-player luminaries” was off the mark and he was confident the 26-year-old would weigh up all his options before making a final decision on his future.

“For him to have an operations as serious as that, I don’t think he’s taking that lightly,” he said.

“Will the injury influence his mind? Clubs will do their due diligence.

“I would’ve thought that before all of this, he would have made up his mind (whether he’s leaving).”
