Forward pressure: How does Tom Lynch fit into the equation?

It's a good problem to have. In the last two years the Tigers have primarily played Jack Riewoldt as a sole tall, with Josh Caddy or a resting midfielder such as Dustin Martin at full-forward. Around them are a mosquito fleet of smalls. Richmond could revert to a more traditional forward line with both Lynch and Riewoldt, pushing one of Daniel Rioli or Jack Higgins into the midfield. A left-field option could see Riewoldt playing primarily on a flank/wing as a marking target, with Lynch at centre half-forward. This would leave Richmond's deep set-up of Caddy/Martin – who have kicked a combined 135 goals over the past two seasons – intact. - Sarah Black

When they double tag Jack with a man in the slot how will they defend with Tom and Jack in the same fwd structure?
Great problem to have

I went to the GWS game in Sydney last year and in the space of about 5 minutes Jack lead out and marked about 70m out from goal. He then waited and waited for an option to present but none did and GWS were able to negate by rushing the ball.

Now add a 199cm marking forward to the equation and Jack has a strong option other than just lobbing it in hoping. Would have only taken Lynch to mark one of those entries and kick the goal and we win the game.

Why is this even a article?
