Gold Coast Suns coach Rodney Eade says he’ll need to have further talks with AFL umpires boss Hayden Kennedy if clubs continue to use dirty tactics to try and stop star forward Tom Lynch.

Eade had already spoken to the umpires boss before the season began about the same issue, but said he won’t hesitate to speak to him again if it keeps happening.

“I think if you look at other games, Sydney umpires have made a bit of a focus on that, forwards being obstructed,” Eade said on SEN.

“Tom got one (free kick) late in the game that probably wasn’t there but probably had three that were missed.

“That’s something I’ll maybe have a look at this week and then have a chat to Hayden next week.“

Lynch still managed three goals and grabbed five marks against the Lions last weekend in the Suns’ narrow two-point loss.
