It was a fashion decision that caught the eye of star Aussie swimmer, Kyle Chalmers.
‘Nice manbag @zaclomax,’ he wrote on Thorton’s Instagram.
The 190cm, 94kg muscle-bound Lomax was not embarrassed in the slightest, flinging the cheeky banter right back at Chalmers.
‘Same as your skinny Jeans and black nails … confidence,’ Lomax wrote, with a nail polish emoji.

Thornton has been spotted at some of Lomax’s Dragons games over the past few months, and posted shots of the pair shopping and eating some luxurious food while on holiday in Hawaii.
The talented swimmer won two relay medals at the NSW State Championships earlier this year, and placed fourth in the 200m backstroke at the national titles in May.

Tipped very early on in his career to play for NSW after making his NRL debut in 2018, Lomax has since featured in headlines for the wrong reasons.
The goal-kicking centre was suspended and fined $31,000 for attending then-teammate Paul Vaughan’s infamous barbeque last year while the state was in the grips of harsh Covid restrictions.
His playing style has often earned the ire of top pundits and former players, but there is no doubting his immense talent.
