Lynch sees his future on the Gold Coast

Gold Coast co-captain Tom Lynch has committed his future to the Suns long-term, suggesting he and fellow skipper Steven May are here to stay.

The 24-year-old key forward led the Suns to their second consecutive win over the weekend, kicking a career-high 7.0 against Carlton at Etihad Stadium.

Gold Coast are now 2-2 after a slow start, which saw them lose to Brisbane and smashed by GWS to the tune of 102 points in round two.

After back-to-back wins against Hawthorn and the Blues, the Suns have shown what they’re made of and have turned their season around, which has Lynch excited for the future.

“I’m very happy up here at Gold Coast,” Lynch said on Fox Footy’s AFL360 on Wednesday night.

“I’ve only just signed a contract, it was only 12 months ago, so I’m very happy to stay up here and there’s been some encouraging signs over the last two weeks.

“We’ve played some good footy and that’s the footy we want to stand for.

“I see Rocket here long-term and I see Steven (May) and I here long-term.

“I see the combination continuing. I’m really enjoying working under Rocket at the moment and I think that’s showing.”

The Suns will get to see what they’re really made of this weekend, as they host Adelaide at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.
