    Random stat that was quirky enough to share... @westernbulldogs youngster Brad Lynch has racked up more disposals in his first three AFL games than every Brownlow Medal winner this century did, except for Dusty.

    So Lynch's manager is re-tweeting this to Sam Power for an immediate contract?

    57 disposals at 78.9% efficiency in his first 3 games is impressive. If he can reduce the clangers (9) and the free kick differential (1 for, 6 against) a little he will be well on his way.

    Obviously his instinct to take players on is going to lead to errors at times but as others have said, hopefully with more experience he can recognise when to pull the trigger and when to play it safe.

    Your second sentence describe Bailey Williams' rise to form, within 18 months he's gone from maybe to fringe to defender to best 22 who can play multiple roles. Lynch has a chance to mirror that rise.

    Lynch is more outside than Williams but speed and the ability to use the ball well by foot are always welcome in our side. Glad to see him doing so well.

    Lynch’s obscure stat record


    Some stats are obscure and easily massaged to support a point, and others a pretty straight forward, like total disposals.

    But not many are both substantial and quirky enough to guarantee you trivia night success like this one regarding Dogs’ rookie Brad Lynch.

    But facts are facts, and in a stat dug out by journalist Shane Hope of The West Australian, Brad Lynch’s 57 disposals are the most collected by every Brownlow Medallist this century except for Tigers star Dustin Martin.

    You read that right. Dangerfield? 27 over three games. Ablett? 27. Chris Judd? 48. The list goes on, and only Martin’s 61 has the former Mandurah speedster covered.

    The 21-year-old is averaging 19 disposals, three marks and two tackles over his opening three games, playing with a combination of confidence and flair since he debuted against Geelong in round 15.

    Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge said Lynch has come a long way since he was taken with the 11th pick in the 2015 NAB AFL Rookie Draft, and has benefited from adding some physicality to his game.

    “Over the course of the three years he's come on in that regard,” he said.

    “Coming from a long way back, Lynchy's 10-12 kilos heavier than he was when he first came to us.

    “He's got that strength and confidence from that which helped his game.”

    Really good comparison. It felt like Williams really transitioned this year. Hopefully with another preseason or two Lynch can follow.

    Re: High praise for rookie Lynch

    Both Lynch Richards and Williams gives us a badly injection of pace into the side. We are now getting a further injection of good defenders allowing Williams to move into the midfield which needs bolstering and Crozier to half forward.
