After a strong start to the season, Richmond forward Tom Lynch has been kept quiet over the past three weeks, booting just one goal across games against the Dogs, Demons, and Swans.

Despite the fact Lynch is still second in the Coleman Medal race behind GWS star Jeremy Cameron, former Essendon spearhead Matthew Lloyd believes Lynch isn’t moving as well as he should be doing.

“He’s a massive concern,” Lloyd told 3AW on Monday.

“He’s turning like I maybe would at the moment, as a 41-year-old.

“That’s a really big sledge, but unless he can mark or get it lace out, he’s a liability at the moment, Tom Lynch – at ground level, defensively, turning.

“Compare him (to) Cameron (who is) the benchmark. Pretty much unless he marks it he’s not effective as a player.”

Lynch registered goal hauls of three, three, four and six over the opening four rounds of the season.
