"‘And as long as I look after myself, I’m pretty much back to normal these days.’ That means playing high-intensity full contact professional sport. I’ve been patient and I’ve worked very, very hard."

From Wikipedia

"A long battle with chronic fatigue syndrome threatened his career; however, after many years in absence Lynch's return to form at a relatively late age in his career was hailed by the football community, and he became part of Brisbane Lions' celebrated premiership winning formula.

Lynch is a Tasmanian football legend, a favourite son at both Fitzroy and Brisbane clubs and holds the record for the most combined goals for the merged entity and one of the last remaining former Fitzroy players to play in the AFL."
