Linc McCarthy’s career resurgence continued in his second season at the Lions as he produced another solid campaign in attack.
After managing 29 games in seven seasons at the Cats, McCarthy passed the 50 AFL game milestone in his second season at Brisbane.
The lively half forward played 17 of 19 games, missing once though suspension and one for a badly corked thigh, and booted 15 goals.
He kicked multiple goals on five occasions and produced a couple more of his regular contenders for mark of the year, none better than his gutsy grab going back with the flight of the ball against the Crows in round four.
McCarthy was one of the Lions’ best in the 41 point round ten loss to Richmond at Metricon Stadium where he gathered a season high 17 disposals and booted 1.3.
He also enjoyed his time against the two clubs from his home state in South Australia. Against the Crows in round four he booted two goals from 11 disposals and laid four tackles in a strong defensive performance.
He backed that up the following week against the Power where he kicked another two goals from ten disposals.
