Ex-Castleford Tigers and Hull FC prop takes on coaching role

Former Castleford Tigers, Bradford Bulls and Hull FC man Andy Lynch has taken on a new role.

Lynch had a brilliant career and holds the record for the third most appearances in Super League history behind Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield and St Helens star James Roby.

Lynch started his career with 137 appearances with Castleford Tigers until he joined Bradford Bulls in 2005 where he featured in the club’s most recent title winning campaign making 204 appearances until he joined Hull FC for a two year stint.

In the 2012 and 2013 seasons he made a combined 59 appearances for the Black and Whites before returning to Castleford after a decade away from the club.

His return would coincide with the Tigers making it to the Challenge Cup Final for the first time in the Super League era but Lynch’s side came up short against Leeds Rhinos.

Lynch retired in 2017 after the Tigers reached a first ever Grand Final again losing to Leeds.

Now the big prop is trying his hand at coaching with The Mole – a notorious Australian journalist – revealing on Twitter that Lynch was coaching at the Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs in New South Wales and is looking for players.

The former England and Great Britian international went straight into coaching helping former teammate Danny Orr with the Elite Rugby Academy in 2018.

He has seemingly progressed as a coach and is now coaching down under.
