He also feels that the veteran forward is in the same league of quality as Leeds icon Jamie Peacock.
“We’ve had quite a lot of players who’ve had outstanding seasons,” Powell said, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“People talk about Jamie Peacock a lot – and rightfully so – but Andy has just been incredible for us.
“He has had a fantastic season and he is just so consistent both on and off the field. He has been massive.
“There’s a lot of good-quality front-rowers around. There’s some in the southern hemisphere and they are outstanding, but Lynchy has been all season.
“JP gets talked about a lot over here, but I think he is in the same bracket.”
