Cotchin backs Richmond’s play for Tom Lynch

If Tom Lynch decides to leave the Gold Coast Suns, Richmond captain Trent Cotchin says the club would be “silly” not to try and secure his services.

The Tigers are one of the main players in the chase for the out of contract Suns forward, and Cotchin has delivered a strong endorsement of Lynch’s character.

“From all reports, he’s an incredible person, which is probably the number one thing, and he’s an amazing talent and he’s a big boy,” he told SEN Breakfast.

“So you’d be silly if you weren’t looking at him as a footy club if he does decide he wants to leave the Gold Coast Suns.

“We have people in charge of those areas that we have full trust in putting together the right deals and the right players to fit our footy team.

“Until it gets further down the track, there’s no real point in commentating on it further.”

On Fox Footy earlier this year, Alex Rance said you wouldn’t want to upset the apple cart by chasing a big fish like Lynch.
